Re: lexmark x3470 cartridge missing warning
More than once I've gotten cartridges that we're bad (and some even empty) right from the manufacturer's box. Return it for exchange as defective (you won't get money back for opened ink, but they should exchange it). I'm assuming that you've already re-installed this cartridge a couple of times and that there we're no previous problems. Good luck!

If the ink cartridges you purchased are not Lexmark - that could be the problem. I used to have a Lexmark printer and I did the same thing - I purchased ink cartridges that were compatible but not Lexmark brand. Everything seemed fine until I tried to print and then I would get the same error sign and low ink message and it would not print. I kept thinking I was doing something else wrong and tried everything. In the end I broke down and got ink cartridges from Lexmark and that solved the problem. Now I have a Brother printer and I never buy anything other than Brother ink cartridges because I'm always afraid of that same thing happening again. I wish I knew which printers WOULD accept those non name brand ink cartridges, but thus far I do not know of any printers that do. Hope this helps you.
Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test. Good Luck!!!!
Power on your printer and lift the cartridge door on the top of your printer. The ink cartridges will move automatically to the center. When they stop, pull the ink cartridge towards you and up to remove it. Then, take the new ink cartridge, remove all the plastic covers and place it in the printer. Then close the cartridge door and you are ready to print again.
when you installed the new ink cartridge did you go into your program menu and find the lexmark solution center? If not, you have to go to the solution center, choose the maintenance menu and tell it you have installed the new ink cartridge. If you don't it will not recognize the new one.
In this case as u said u used this Catridges in 2 printers then check if u have removed the Transparent Strip from the catridges mand if it is removed and still u face this problem make sure u have inserted the Catridges in the right slot........
U need to insert the colour catridge on the right side and the black catridge should go on the left side....
If no go get the catridges replaced.......
