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?

Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark black cartridge. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark. Try to reinsert your black cartridge and make sure it is properly seated in the cartridge carrier. If error comes back up right after placing it in the printer, then it could be a faulty cartridge. Try to replace it with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge. If you are already using a genuine Lexmark cartridge, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.
Hard to tell...There are other issues which could contribute related to the printer itself, etc.
But I will say in my experience often refill kits for ink cartridges don't work if you allow them the cartridge to run bone dry. Maybe the internal components become hard and won't re saturate with new ink, not sure. If new cartridges work; and the refills don't I'd say there may be a problem with them.
I got this from Lexmark this morning didn"t work for me but it may help somedody else worth a try C/P.
