3 Gently move the cartridge carrier into a position where cartridges can be removed.
4 Remove the print cartridges. (For information on cleaning the cartridge contacts, click here.)
5 Using a dry, clean cloth wipe the carrier contacts gently from top to bottom.
6 Repeat Step 5 for the other cartridge slot (if applicable).
7 Reinsert the cartridges, slide the cartridge carrier to its original position, and close the printer/All-In-One lid.

If your cartridges are not being detected when they are snapped in, do the following:
Open the cover of the printer and unsnap both cartridges.
Snap them back in after a few seconds. Close the cover.
Repeat these steps (1-2) three or more times in succession. You will be prompted to go through the menu on the printer display to finish the process. Follow the instructions displayed.
If your printer is posting a LOW INK LEVEL or CHANGE CARTRIDGE error, snap the cartridges in and out as directed above (steps 1-3). When you close the front cover, you should see the message Cartridge Change - NEW on the display.
Press Select to indicate that you have just installed a new cartridge.

SOURCE: don't know how to install ink

Installing print cartridges
1 Open the printer, and then press down on the cartridge carrier levers.
2 Remove the used print cartridge or cartridges.
3 If you are installing new print cartridges, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the color cartridge, insert the cartridge in the right carrier, and then close the color cartridge carrier lid.

Warning—Potential Damage: Do not touch the gold contact area on the back or the metal nozzles on the bottom of the cartridge.

4 If a black cartridge is included in the box contents, remove the tape from the back and bottom of the black cartridge, insert the cartridge in the left carrier, and then close the black cartridge carrier lid.

5 Close the printer, making sure to keep your hands out from underneath the scanner unit.

Removing a used print cartridge

1 Make sure the printer is on.
2 Lift the scanner unit.
The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the printer is busy.
3 Press down on the cartridge carrier latch to raise the cartridge carrier lid.
4 Remove the used print cartridge.

Note: If you are removing both cartridges, repeat step 3 and step 4 for the second cartridge.

    SOURCE: installed new 28 and 29

    It could be that your cartridges need some cleaning. On your computer, launch the Lexmark Solution Center. Click Start menu > Programs or All Programs >Lexmark 2500 Series > Lexmark Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print again.

      SOURCE: lexmark x4650 refilled ink cartridge

      Lexmark does not recommend using refilled cartridges. However, if you have successfully used one before, there's a possibility that the refilled cartride got damaged along the process of refilling. Try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty. Or better yet, try to purchase a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.

      Are the ink cartridges interchangable between the lexmark 4650 and the 4690? They certainly appear identical in every aspect.

      Hello. The only common cartridge the X4650 and the X4690 uses is the #31 photo color print cartridge. Other cartridges for the printers are non-interchangeable. For your reference, you can click on this links to the Lexmark website. and . First link shows you compatible cartridges for Lexmark X4650 and the second link is for Lexmark X4690. Hope this helps.

      Lexmark Cartridge Error

      Are you using a Lexmark factory new cartridge? If not then please try a Lexmark factory new cartridge.

      Lexmark does not support the use of third party cartridges or refilled cartridges. Lexmark considers this to be product tampering and will void the printer's warranty if damage occurs because of the OEM cartridge.

      Please don't shoot the messenger for giving you bad news. It is the truth!
