Re: My Lexmax X4530 gives ink cartridge error message
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My heavy handed daughter decided to change the cartridges herself by yanking the print carriage all the way from left to right, in the process pulling it offline from the drive belt. To resolve the problem I installed new cartridges and gently but firmly applied forward and lateral pressure to push the cartridge part way back to the left along the drive belt. The carriage then moved freely and upon restarting the printer, normal operation was resumed.
So as MUKHTAR states, do not refill cartiges when they are TOO EMPTY as most of the new printers have a sensor in the cartige that tells when it is empty. and when that sensor fills that the cartige is empty, it stays that way, no matter how much you refill it.
on the laser printers, when you refill your toner cartige there also is a chip that is changed (the sensor) because once that sensor feels that the cartige is empty you will not be able to use that cartige anymore.
By any chance did you get these cartridges refilled? If so then you may be out of luck as I read that Lexmark chip their cartridges/printers to reject refilled cartridges. I have the same problem at the moment just with the right (colur) cartridge. The cartridge is an original refillable Lexmark (i.e. grey box) I got the cartridge refilled twice and it worked fine, but the third time no joy. Research indicate that Lexmark program their printers to reject cartridges refilled 3 times!!
This happens from time to time. I have bought new 22 & 23 cartridges for my Lex. x3350 before with "flawed" contacts. Either return it for refund or buy a new one. Thw next working one you get, try re filling it. I get mine refilled at Walgreens. Cost for me in Texas is $10 for black and 15 for color. I refill them 4 times before I replace with new. Saved me a ton of money.
The compatible cartridges for the X4530 Lexmark printer are the # 23,23A,24,24A,31,34,35.
If you have the correct cartridge number and still says cartridge incorrect, try this steps.
1. Get a damp and a dry paper towel. 2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds. ( try this for around 5 times ) 3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. ( try this around 5 times ) 4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing. 5. Remove the power adaprtor behind the printer. 6. Using the dry paper towel, clean the metal contacts on the cartridge carrier inside the printer. ( try this 5 times ) 7. Place the Cartridge back to the printer, connect the power adaptor. 8. Check if there is any error message.
If same problem persist, try to contact Lexmark Technical Support.
