Hi...

Silly question, but I have done this myself. Have you removed the tape from the bottom of the cartridge?

SOURCE: i need to reset my ink levels on my lexmark s305

I managed to successfully refill the black cartridge for the S305; I did it when the printer warned of 'very low black ink' (although it didn't print very well - i.e. grey - until the following day). It kept displaying 'low ink' but printed fine for a few months.
I think if you can catch it before the printer decides it needs an 'official' refill or replacement then it works (although when exactly this is is a mystery, as it always displays 'low' for black ink).
Yesterday, the printer decided it wouldn't print until the cartridge was changed.
Refilled; waited for half a day;replaced several times; turned the printer on and off 5 times with no cartridge in (to see if it would wipe the printer's memory of the cartridge); and spent about 4 hours online trying to find a solution.
If it starts working tomorrow, I'll let you know. I don't want to mess about with software that may reset the ink levels. (If anyone finds some that works, please post!)
It looks like Lexmark have ensured they can pile in the cash with their original cartridges.
I've heard about generic cartridges that are chipped to avoid the above problem - I'll visit my local refill store soon.
There must be a way round this!
Cheers, Fronter

Lexmark printer not dispensing ink


First, make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Second, try updating the firmware of your printer. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

If the firmware update doesn't help, please perform a maintenance on the cartridges. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

If it still doesn't help, please contact our technical support team.

Will not print in black


Is there a black ink cartridge inside?
If so, remove the cartridge and pull the tape off the head and reinsert it.

Printer will not print until black catridge is replaced.


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer will prime every once in a while thus the need for all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Downgrade Lexmark s305 Printer Software


There's no way of downgrading the firmware of your printer. Refilled/refurbished cartridges will void the warranty of your printer.

Lexmark s305 reset chip


I believe that the chips are easily reused, but only once per printer. There are two options:

I get mine from Ebay. A 5 pack (2 black) of 100 xl runs around $25 and shipping's free. I've gotten a few and haven't had much of a problem. Once in a while they'll be a little finicky getting started but I've never had a problem with the printer accepting it.

Lexmark S305 won't authenticate ink non brand


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. Also, when you use off-brand inks and cartridges, there is no way for Lexmark to be sure that materials and engineering choices used by a third party will not result in poor print quality or damage to your printer.
I highly recommend that you return your third-party cartridge if you still can get a refund and purchase genuine Lexmark cartridges instead.
Here's a tip to save on ink: A 100 "standard yield" cartridge for your model has a low sales price, but contains less ink. Your best value is a 100XL "high yield" cartridge. These have a higher sticker price, but contain almost 3 times as much ink as their standard yield cousins.

For the most optimal output experience with your model, I recommends that you update your printer firmware. The firmware helps ensure that you receive the highest yields of ink available from the cartridges, which offers the greatest value and means fewer necessary cartridge replacements. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark S300 Series Firmware Update. If more than one download is listed for your model, choose the first download in the list. If it is the wrong firmware level, an error message will tell you which firmware level is correct.

The Lexmark Impact S305 printer requires all the cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing - even if you're printing using black ink only. To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink.
Note: Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality if you want to print color in the future.

How let Lexmark S305 only use black cartridge to print black. Now the color cartridges getting empty by only printing black, and with "only use black ink" selected. (Besides that, the cartridge...


Please follow the steps below on how to print using black ink only on your Lexmark S305 printer:
For Windows:
  1. With your document/file open, click File.
  2. Click Print.
  3. Click Printing Preferences/ Properties.
  4. In the Lexmark S300 Series Printing Preferences window, select print using black ink only.
  5. Click OK to save the settings.
  6. Click Ok again to print your file.

For Mac operating system:
  1. With your document/file open, click File.
  2. Click Print.
  3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media in a drop down box and select print in black and white.

If you wish to set this as your default print setting, please follow steps below:
For Windows:
  1. Go to Control Panel.
  2. Open Printers and Faxes.
  3. Right-click on Lexmark S300 Series print object and click on Properties.
  4. In the Lexmark S300 Series Properties window, go to Advanced tab. Click on Printing Defaults.
  5. Under Ink Use, select Print using black ink only. Click OK.
  6. Click OK button in the Lexmark S300 Series Properties window to save the changes.
Your printer will print in black only the next time you send a print job to the printer.

For Mac:
  1. With the file (you wish to print) open, click File.
  2. Click Print.
  3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media in a drop down box and select print in black and white.
  4. Save this as your default print setting. Click Presets option and choose Save as. You can personalize the name for this default print setting (e.g. Black and White Draft or My Setting).

Select this Preset name every time you print your files/documents.
Note: The 100 standard cartridges yield around 175 ISO Pages. You can also save on ink and stretch your ink investment if you use only 100XL high yield cartridges. These contain almost 3x as much ink as a standard cartridge for a small increment in price.
