Lexmark printer "replace cartridge" after refill install
I have 2 lexmark inkjet printers (P6250 & x4270) that both exhibit the same problem that after a refil or replace cartridge with a generic. They may print for short while but then complain about the cartridge needing to be replaced.
I filled more, cleaned contacts etc but no use. With the P6250 if I select continue and "select" on the printer it will actually print but that's for each print job.
I wonder if the printer senses characteristics of the non-lexmark ink?

Virtually any inkjet printer works with your Laptop. Factors to keep in mind are the cost of the printer and cost of the ink cartridges. Printer manufacturers make the printer very inexpensive but the cartridges not!
Also the purpose of printer. Photo printing or general use?
Before buying any printer look at the cost of replacement cartridges. Kodak is one company currently keeping the price of their cartridges low. This does not mean they are the best printers out there. HP Lexmark Epson Samsung and many other make printers.

Price of the printer should not be a major factor in selecting printer
Price of cartridges should be taken seriously as the recurring expenditure increases with that!
what model is your lexmark i can find the drivers for you, and you can also try going to lexmark.com and doing a driver search or just google the model and type drivers. make sure the website is a lexmark site, you will get both the drivers and the software for the printer.
Here the problem is the refill, while refilling the cartridge there is a hight possibility of getting the circuit damaged. If you use new cartridge the printer will work without any problem, refilled cartridge may spoil the entire printer. it is recommended to use New cartridge for better life of the printer.
At this point the old cartridge circuit seems to be broken, and the printer is not able to detect the cartridge.
check these 1. make sure there is no tape in front of the cartridge blocking the contacts, 2. Make sure the printer is set as default printer 3. Check for the cable, make sure all the cables are plugged in correct 4. Make sure the Power outlet is plugged in and it is turned on 5. try taking a copy of any document/ using the copy option (first button)
The chip on the cartridge needs to be reset. You can find replacement chips on the internet but they cost about half as much as a new cartridge. Also, if you filled the cartridge incorrectly you can get air in the ink lines of your printer which will make it unable to print that color. Overall, I would recommend getting refills from Cartridge World. They always reset the chip, take care of the mess of filling for you, cost less than new cartridges, and are 100% guaranteed to work.
Most likely the ink cartridges for this printer have a chip on them. This chip tells the printer how much ink is left and when it is low or out, you must replace the whole cartridge otherwise if you just refill it, the chip will still report the same amount of ink as it doesn't go by the actual ink level inside the cartridge, it determines the ink level by calculating approximately how much ink has been used while it was printing. So it doesn't matter how full the cartridge is, unless you replace the cartridge or reset the counter on the chip somehow, it will still display the calculated amount not the actual amount.
