1. Make sure the printer is switched on, the old cartridges are still in the printer, and the cartridge cover is closed.

2. Click on Start, Programs (XP: All Programs), Lexmark <Printer Name>, Lexmark <Printer Name> Solution Center.

3. When the Solution Center screen appears, click on the Maintenance button on the left-hand side. (This button is the third from the top and bears a picture of ink drops.)

4. When you see the Install or obtain a New Cartridge option, click on it once. A pop-up displays a brief description of how to physically remove an old cartridge and install a new one.

5. Follow these instructions and click Next. The software will prompt you to confirm whether the cartridges are new or old.

6. For the new cartridge you just inserted, select No, it's new. Important: Make sure the setting for any old cartridge stays on Yes, It is old.

7. Once your selections have been made, click OK. The program will want to run the alignment for any new cartridges you installed. This applies whether you changed one or both cartridges (in the case of printers that can hold two cartridges). An alignment screen with a red and white bull's eye will appear.

8. Make sure the cartridge cover is closed and that there is paper in the printer.

9. Then click the Print button on the alignment screen. A sheet of paper will print from your printer with a series of arrows and numbers on it, with one set of solid bars above them. You should see four groups of lines, unless you have a single cartridge. If you have a single cartridge, you will only have one set of lines.

10. In each group, locate the arrow that looks the most solid. It may help to circle the number under each arrow you choose as you go along.

11. On your screen, you will see an area where you can enter the alignment values. When you have identified all the numbers, select those same numbers for each group on your screen, using the up and down arrows next to each value for A, B, C, and D (or A if you have only one cartridge).

12. When all the numbers have been changed to reflect the chosen numbers on the printed alignment page, click OK. The cartridge installation procedure is complete.

13. You can now exit from the Solution Center.

Hi I bought a lexmark S405 and when my ink finished, i decided to refill the black catridge but the print wont print unless i buy a new catridge which is expensive than buying a new printer. I wanna...


The Lexmark S405 printer requires all cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing.

The 100/100XL cartridges are not licensed to be refilled. You can, however, refill the 100A or 100XLA cartridges available on the Lexmark website at http://www.lexmark.com. You should be aware that a refilled cartridge will not be able to report its ink level, and you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.

I have a lexmark printer model 5495,it tells me that the right cartridge is incorrect, i just put in new cartridges in . the cartridges 28-black/29-color, it still tell me the samething


Hi, The Right Cartridge Incorrect error message generally indicates a communication error between the All-In-One and the cartridge. This can be due to a faulty cartridge or to a simple interruption in the communication between the cartridge and the All-In-One. The procedures below will help you identify the cause and resolve the issue.Lexmark uses, at least they used to, a chip in the ink catridges that verifies that the ink catridge is Lexmark and hasn't been refilled. There are ways around it, which is why third party cartridges work. Yours may not have been reset or damaged when refilled. Follow the below steps: 1) Disconnect the power from the printer.

2) Remove the black power brick/block from the rear of the machine. (It may be a little tough to pull it out the first time you remove it.

3) Open the top of the printer/multi-function unit.

4) Gently pull the ribbon in order to center the printer cartridge carrier.

5) Open either the left or right side and remove the cartridge. (Depends on which side the error is occurring on, black on the left, color on the right)

6) Verify that all of the plastic strip that covered the new contacts on the cartridge have in fact been removed.

7) Wipe both the cartridge and printer contacts with a dry, lint free cloth.

8) Wipe the bottom of the cartridge with a damp, lint free cloth in order to verify that the ink is flowing and looks correct.

9) Make sure there is no water remaining on the cartridge.

10) Re-insert the cartridge into the carrier and make sure that it is bottomed and inserted all the way to the rear of the carrier slot.

11) Re-insert the power brick/block.

12) Re-connect the printer power cable.

13) Power on the printer and the error should be resolved.

14) Run the print alignment and print or copy several pages to insure the problem has been resolved.

Lexmark C510 printer doesn't print yellow color.


Try the old one again. If this works you have a defective new catridge. This sometimes happens.

Solution for "dell 946 aio reads error 1203 replacment cartridge wont read"


This is what I found on a Dell Community site.

It's mean your catridges overflow even from brand new catridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the catridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the catridge. I have the same problem which I think lexmark have a proble and overlook.
Solution:
I use the klennex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
The refill ink work very well if you let it sit 24 hrs. Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the catridges a couple times then run clean catridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of klennex on those holder contact panel.

To reset the error code, disconnect the power cord from the wall. Also remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Then connect everything again.

Hope this helps

Red colour toner replaced Cartridge with a new onebut still no print coreect. Replaced the Yellow colour toner Cartridge with a new one but printing is not clear.


this problem regards the head of the catridge. u have to do clean due to dust it may happenlike that. u clean inside with the cotton cloth on the print head and refix the all color catridges. when u remove ur catridge u have to close all the sides due to avoiding dry.
the second reason when u purchase ur catridges, check whether the catridges are valid date.

EC5 = Print Head Short. Short test detected short circuit in printhead. Fix is to replace print cartridge(s).

Printer not printing


In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry........... Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out....... Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds...... Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........ Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel.......... Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer the Colour Catridge should go in the right side and the black on the left........ Unplug the Power Supply from the printer....... Press and hold the Stop/Clear button on the Printer and Plug in the Power Supply while holding the Stop/Clear button it should say clearing on the screen at that point u can go ahead and release the Stop/Clear button.......... Now the Printer will ask for the Date Time and Country Language......... Set everything up...... Now try to Print i am sure it should work.......... Good Luck............
