No Spares no fix- unless you can find a scrap one. Printers tend not to be fixed because they are so cheap to buy- just like small domestic elctricals Breakit-Binit-Buy the next one

I have a broken ink cartridge holder on a lexmark 730 is saying ink cartridge missing

Hi David,

Unless you have a very expensive printer or you know of a store that has a wide range of used printers, it won't be worth your time and money to order a new cartridge tray for your printer.
I would suggest buying a new 730 series printer and keeping the old one for spares.
If however you're curious as to the price of a new cartridge holder it would be your best bet to browse to and do a parts enquiry from the website.
Best wishes,

Lights on printer flashing -printer will not print

Flashing light signals you that your cartridge ink is empty. Sorry to know you're in trouble with your printer. Here are my suggestions: You have to buy a new genuine cartridge or you can refill ink. Be warned! Refilling ink or using a refilled ink cartridges will not work until the ink cartridge chip or ink monitor is disabled. For instructions on how to disable an ink cartridge chip, please visit [] Now you can CURSE the manufacturer of your printer for making your life sucks by making it complicated the things that should be made SIMPLE and EASY. Printer or Cartridge, more or less, cost you the same. Don't you think the printer cartridges should be made simply refillable/usable unless they are broken, and we should be buying only the ink for the cartridges. It is SO ANNOYING, dude! Good luck.

Hi, i think during the process of changing the cartridges, the top lid on the ink cartridge that clips or keys the cartridge down inside the printer has been broken and needs to be replaced.

I suggest you get a technician to help get a replacement for this. With this your printer should be in other.

I had a error message saying to replace the black and cyan ink, I replaced the ink and it continues to display the same message and won't print my work It scan and copies fine and when I check the ink...

did u changed / replaced the cartridge with original spare or refilled it??
do not panic..this kind of problem often follows with (esp. an unbranded) cartridge change and or refilling..!!
it also can be the defective cartridge itself causing such problem..!!
well if u r a professional then just dip a cotton into isopropyl alcohol n gently rub the connector sensor/ contact surface, n reinsert it properly, gently rub on the head too n make sure ink is coming/flowing, make sure the toner is not jammed or dried up, also have a glance on the 'carriage' n see that no sensor pins are broken and or bend..!!
..if u r not an professional, make sure it is properly inserted and the ink-spill protective/head covering is removed..
if all the above fails, then it may b a defective or demo cartridge..!!
and call ur system admin....

E5 error

HI ...

This error comes in when the cartridge is not installed correct ... I would suggest you remove and then re-install the cartridge using the below steps:

Removing Ink Cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.


  2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.

    Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.


  3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

    Note: Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.


Installing ink cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

    Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.


  2. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot

  3. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)


  4. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.

    <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

    <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

  5. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

  6. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
Please vote if this helps ... Cheers :)

Did you lock and secure the latches?

If yes and still this message, do you run generic ink carts?

If yes, the cart holder is stained with ink and the led-controll-board has a short circuit, which cant be fixed!

You need a new cart holder as a spare part!

Trouble installing ink cartridge


We've met several problem like this. Hope you can manage to look for the lock notch at the top of the ink tray, or it may be located beside of the tray holding the body of the ink cartridge. If you found out the lock notch is broken, you can revised by putting a piece of paper to tighten just enough to hold on the ink cartridge to pop-out.

Best regards,
