Either the cartridge didn't get seated properly or a tab on the door that pushes a hidden micro-switch is broken off, not aligned correctly or obstructed from going in to the slot. The tab is a non-assuming plastic tab that lines up with a hole in the housing. "If" it is broken, bend down the center of a paper clip to form a "T" and insert it into the hole. The "T" shape will keep it form falling through. You may have to tape it into place. This is a safety feature to keep you from reaching in while it is printing or about to start. So remove it before doing any maintanence.

My lexmark x3470 wont recognise compatible ink Cartridges any know of a way round this


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.

How do I reset Lexmark x3470 incorrect cartridge error


Try to follow the steps below to determine what is causing the problem and fix the issue:

1. Make sure the printer is on.

2. Open the printer cover. The print cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position, unless the All-in-One is busy.

Note: If the carrier does not automatically move to the center, turn off the printer/unplug the printer from the power source and then slide the carrier to the center.

3. Remove both cartridges from the carrier.

4. Close the printer cover.

5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.

7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.

8. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge. Then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Let me know if this helps.

I have a Lexmark X3470 which uses the Lexmark 1 cartridge . I bought a replacement but the printer displays incorrect cartridge.


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!!!!

How do i remove an ink cartridge from lexmark x3470 printer


Hi,
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.

Hello, always keep dockets. Could be a dud cartridge. Recommend clean unit with own printer program, especially a deep clean if you have this. Try cleaning manually with proper cleaning solution and cotton tip, where cartridge sits. Also, is the cartridge the correct generic equivalent of the genuine lexmark, you may have wrong no cartridge too. good luck, lilacgerry xxx
