Changing ink cartridge

  • Here is an instruction set I found at
  • 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.

    Not printing...printer says remove or change ribbon

    First you want to clean both the cartridges and the cartridge seats inside of the printer with warm water and a soft cloth (I use old t-shirts). After you've done that place the cartridges back into the printer and clean the printheads. You can do this by following the steps on page 83 of your user manual:

    1) Load the paper
    2) Press "Copy"
    3) Press Options until Maintenance appears on the display.
    4) Press the right arrow until Clean Cartridges appears on the
    5) Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the
    nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.
    6) Print your document again to verify that your print quality has

    You can also find information on cleaning the cartridges on pages 83 and 84 of your manual. If you don't have one available, you can download one at:

    I have an old Lexmark 5150 which takes 82/83 cartridges can you tell me which new Lexmark would take the same kind of cartridges? as I am thinking of buying a new All in one printer, scanner,...


    You know what, while I was at the lexmark site it dawned on me the the ink you use is almost as much as a brand new lexmark z series printer, man dump the dinosaur and make the plunge. Besides I didn't find any newer printers that had compatibility with 82/83 ink cartridges. Sorry I couldn't be more help.
