Question about Lexmark X2500 All-In-One Printer
All of the sudden my printer is giving me an "invalid cartridge" message, and i don't know why. The cartridges are the right ones, and they are 3/4 full and they've worked fine up until today. I've tried unplugging everything and plugging it back in. I've tried uninstalling the software and reinstalling it. I've tried taking out the cartridges and wiping them off, but nothing works. What could be the problem?

I logged into Lexmark's web site and checked their printer support page. It said that if you get error message 1203 your ink cartridge has leaked fluid. In order to find the right cartridge, do the following. Remove both ink cartridges, put in one, turn off the printer, turn it back on and if you get the message 1203 that's the cartridge with the problem. I did not get that message. I turned off the printer, put in the other cartridge, and turned it back on. Sure enough, I got the 1203 message again. (I had cleaned the wrong cartridge before). I removed the leaky cartridge, cleaneded it (making sure I did not leave any residue) and put it back in the printer. It worked!

Are you sure that they are installed correctly, seated, etc.? Do you have the right cartridges? Have you aligned them?

28 and 29 are not meant to be refilled. They can physically be refilled, but they won't work. That is because Lexmark has put in a smart chip that doesn't allow refill.
You need to buy 28A and 29A or 34 and 35, those cartridges can be refilled with no problem.
