Question about Lexmark X2500 All-In-One Printer
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?
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....

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!
