Lexmark advertises the cartridges supplied with this printer as cart. #28 and #29. They claim these are nonrefillable. The refillable cartridges are #28a,29a, 34 and 35, the last two being the high yield carts. Make sure you have one of these.

When you try refilling your ink cartridges, you are taking chances that something may go wrong. I would search the web and purchase re-manufactured ink cartridges, which would be less expensive than the new ones from Lexmark.

Lexmark does not allow refilled cartridge on any of their products.
Lexmark, HP and Canon and-many other vendors use proprietary code to protect themselves against the damage of OEM inks.
All companies will void warranties.

Sounds like you just need a new printer. Some times the encoder wheel can get dirty with aerosolized ink and it will start to skip lines. The encoder wheel is a small plastic wheel on the paper feed of your printer. Around the edge of the wheel are hundreds of small thin black lines. As paper goes through the printer it counts these lines as the wheel turns to know how far to push the paper. If ink or debris gets between the lines over time it can start counting two lines as one and thus advance the paper too far, causing blank space between prints. See the below picture of a printer encoder wheel for reference. My professional opinion is to not purchase Lexmark. New Canon printers are very reliable with a high quality output, look for one that uses CLI-221 cartridges. Or most any HP.

Testimonial: "That's exactly what I did! Bought a Kodak ESP 3250. I wasted so much ink trying to correct the lines I could have paid for my new printer. :))))))"

Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . press down the cartridges to contact before it is reset back to the PC.
