Lexmark x2500 printer ink cartridge

I had my ink cartridges refilled (not by Lexmark) and evidently this is not allowed and the printer is not recognizing the new ink cartridges and gives an error message every time I try to print. Is there any way to get around this?

OMG! The cartridges are so expensive. I've tried to refill the cartridge myself and it put up an error message too. The only thing i did was splurge and bought a new cartridge!! Sorry.

Re-set ink level for Lexmark X2550 cartridges.


Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled cartridges. These tend to degrade print quality and cartridge/printer performance.
Please note that once a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer register its ink level.

Changing ink cartridge


  • Here is an instruction set I found at http://www.ehow.com/how_4488808_replace-ink-cartridges-lexmark-x2500.html
  • Step 1 Press the "Power" button to turn on your Lexmark X2500 3-in-1 printer.
  • Step 2 Open the top portion of the printer to reveal the ink cartridges.
  • Step 3 Lift the gray plastic cover on the left. Remove the empty black #28 ink cartridge. Next, lift the purple plastic cover on the right and remove the empty color #29 ink cartridge.
  • Step 4 Remove the new black #28 ink refill cartridge from its packaging. Tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor. Now, remove the new color #29 ink refill cartridge from its packaging and tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor.
  • Step 5 Turn the cartridges so that you can read the label. This is the way the cartridges should face when being put into the printer.
  • Step 6 Slide the black #28 cartridge into the slot on the left side and push it down. Slide the color #29 cartridge into the slot on the right side and push down.
  • Step 7 Push the gray plastic cover down over the #28 cartridge until it clicks closed. Push the purple plastic cover down over the #29 cartridge until it clicks closed.
  • Step 8 Close the top portion of the printer. Your new ink cartridges are installed, and your printer is ready to use.

    How to refill cartridge for X2500 printer


    The warranty does not cover repair of failures or damage caused by a refilled cartridge. Lexmark does not recommend use of a refilled cartridge. Refilling a cartridge can affect print quality and may cause damage to the printer. For best results, use Lexmark supplies.

    Lexmark's warranty does not cover damage caused by non-Lexmark ink or print cartridges.
