Reset Lexmark 36 Black cartridge?

Is it possible to reset a Lexmark 36 Black cartridge? I've got a X4650 Wireless all in one printer. I print a lot and was wondering how to reset the cartridge so that I could refill it?

    This did nothing for my printer...   refilled.. taped off both sides.. it says there is no cartridge in the printer.     take off the tape and put it back in,, it stills shows empty.   grrrrrr

    Have refilled and reset cartridge, now printer only prints black using colour cartridge, which will also run out soon. Does not see the cartridge.

    No, that does NOT work. You may be printing, but you're printing process black using the color cartridge. (Ie. it's mixing cyan, magenta, and yellow to make black).

    Hi, I've read this old post with interest and tested the proposed solution on my 36XLA cartridge. I've also tested a similar method proposed in a video (search for "how to make # 36 ink cartridge works after refill- lexmark 5650"). Well, it's true that in both ways I get a question mark on my black cartridge in my printer settings (I have a x4650) but I actually get the same thing if I completely remove the cartridge. What is happening to me is that I stop getting the low ink level messages but simply because the printer thinks that there is no more black cartridge installed and simply uses the color one. If I remove the color cartridge from the printer and simply leave the taped black one, my printer simply tells me that there are no cartridges installed at all and won't simply print anything. Not sure if anybody saying that the taping workaround works has tried to leave only the black taped cartridge in the printer. For me this solution is simply not working. Thanks, Domenico.

I hope that I may help someone that's confused about were to tape. Hold the number 36 cartridge with the gold contacts facing you. The two gold pads that you need to tape are located on the bottom row on the outside. remember don't tape the ones in the middle, just the two outside ones. One on the left and one on the right. When you are finished you will have tape, two gold square pads and tape. I used blue painters masking tape and its working well....

    Just proves there is nothing that a little duct tape can't fix. I used white duct tape.

That worked like an absolute charm. I was looking on Ebay for reset chips and was willing to pay but this free solution is perfect. BTW, I have a Lexmark 5650 and scotch tape works just fine. Does anyone know which contacts you would cover for the 37 cartridge?

It works, just used my #14 lexmark after refill. I put tape on the 4 bottom points of each sides. You will see 1 alone at the bottom and 3 in a group in the middle, tape the 4 and do the same on the other side. Put it back in the printer and it works... It will dispay a '?' on the ink cartridge level and status when you print.

I drilled my hole in the top of the 36 over the "e" in Lexmark BEFORE I installed it in the printer. I will add a little ink every once in a while before it gets down too far to trip to the 'needs a new cartridge soon' level. I'll let you know if it works. For the 37, without taking off the top and seeing where the color sections are, I won't know until I can take apart a used 37. Then I will try the same time. This way, I don't have to remove the cartridge....we'll see how it works!

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
