Lexmark x4850 ink levels won't reset with new cartridge

I have a Lexmark x4850 all-in-one wireless printer. I just replaced the black ink cartridge (#41) purchased directly from Lexmark and the printer still says I have no black ink, no matter how many times I remove and reinstall the cartridge.

    Yes, I removed the tape and even (after reinstalling 3 times) wiped the connectors with a damp cloth. Still nothing. I'm reinstalling the driver to see if that helps. Obviously, Lexmark's website is no help. I doubt I will ever purchase another Lexmark product.

Hi...

Silly question, but I have done this myself. Have you removed the tape from the bottom of the cartridge?

My Lexmark 4800 version x4850 says there's a cartridge missing!


This can be one out of two things. Either a faulty cartridge, or the cartridge holder. If you still have the old cartridge, insert that one. If now it only displays 'Cartridge Empty', it means that the printer can see the cartridge, and it's your new cartridge that is faulty. If it's still showing Cartridge Missing, it's most likely your printer that is faulty. In either case, you should contact Lexmark Technical Support and they'll provide you with a solution. 

You can also try cleaning the contacts in your cartridge Holder with a dry cloth.

Refill ink for Lexmark X4850


I have a couple questions for you.
1. Is your cartidge 42 or 42A? The 42 cartridge will not work if you refill it. I learned that the hard way after paying to have it refilled and I got it home and it would not print. If you are using the 42A refillable cartridge, your ink levels will not reset. I called lexmark to ask them after not bieng able to find any answers online. He said that because I am using the 42A, it will print but will not register the level. The only downside is I have to keep an eye out for fading so that I do not ruin the printer heads.

I hoped this helped.

What you need is to reset the ink level:
1) Goto the Lexmark Solution Center application.
2) Press button Maintenance>Install a new print cartridge, follow the instruction on screen. U may then have your new full ink level. Note: u only can reset to full level, cannot customize the level by your own.
Hope this help.

Using a refilled ink cartridge on a Lexmark x4850


Yes, most Lexmark cartridges as well as many other manufactures use something called 'Smart' Chips in the bottom of the ink cartridge. Usually unplugging your (about 10 seconds) printer resets the memory in the printer. Hope this helps!

Printer cartridge is a refill and does not seem to be recognized


Maybe you can try to reset the black ink level 1st. To reset the ink level:
1) Goto the Lexmark Solution Center application.
2) Press button Maintenance>Install a new print cartridge, follow the instruction on screen. U may then have your new full ink level. Note: u only can reset to full level, cannot customize the level by your own.
Hope this help.
