Can't install printer cartridge in Lexmark x125

A friend gave me this printer without any cartridges in it. I only need to print in black, so i ordered two remanufactured cartridges online. The manual for the printer says to SNAP the cartridge in. Well, there is nothing that snaps!! The cartridge only sits in the carriage; when I try to push it back, nothing happens; It seems like it doesn't fit but it is definitely the correct number refill!! Anyone else have this problem? What should I do???

    Okay.... so if the snap on the carriage is indeed broken, what can be done about it?? Nothing, I assume?

    I would suggest getting an original Lexmark black cartridge just to be sure, you never know with those remanufactured cartridges. I've had problems with those in the past.

You can go to www.lexmark.com and contact them, but I am sure that the cost of the part is probably not worth the fix, that is, if you can even still get the part.  What I would do is search around on Ebay and see if you can by a broken printer for a few bucks and get the carrier off of that.

I have Lexmark X125 and get message "Check Cartride" I put a new Black Cartride in and get message " None Changed" Printer won't print. What can I do?


What is the black cartridge version that you are using on your Lexmark X125 printer? If you are inserting a photo cartridge on your printer, please follow these steps: 1. Remove the black cartridge and insert the photo cartridge. The printer LCD screen will display CARTRIDGE? NONE CHANGED. 2. Press the Options button to select NEW RIGHT and then press Start. The printer LCD screen will now display RIGHT CARTRIDGE? 3. Use the Options button to select the STD PHOTO cartridge type and click Start. An Alignment page will then print. When the Alignment page is fully printed, the LCD screen will display CARTRIDGE ALIGN. 15 [00-30] A , where - 15 represents the straightest line on the page; - [00-30] is the value range you can select from, between 00 and 30 - A represents the line in each section. 4. Use the numbers on the keypad to select the number of the line you think is the straightest. As you press the number, the LCD will change to the next line automatically. Select the number representing the straightest line in each section.

Lexmark x125 system error after installing new inks


All cartridge installation and level reporting is done through the printer itself, not the software. You should ensure the X125 has the cartridges installed in stand alone mode first. To do so, open the lid and remove the cartridges. Then unplug the power cord for one minute. Reinsert the cartridges, connect the power cord and close the lid. When the lid is closed, the display will ask you if "New" or "Old" cartridges were installed. If new, align the cartridges, if asked to do so. If this still presents you with a "Change Cartridge" message or something similar, please try a different cartridge.

Lexmark x125 all in one won't print from memory.


Did you go into your printer properties and select new cartidge installed?  If this doesn't work, take the cartridges out and clean the contacts on the side and in the carrier with a qtip and rubbing alcohol.  Give it a few minutes to dry and reinstall the cartridges.

How to remove the ink cartridge from printer


gently pull the front panel towards you. then lift the back panel (towards the wall). your cartridges will come forward. gently pull them towards you to unclick then from the holders. there should be directions on the inside of the back panel on how to install/replace them. Hope this helps.

Lexmark 125 Prints Labels with color cartridge


I kicked the **** out of it and it started to print. I don't recommend it if you are afraid you may damage the electronics. The way I saw I spent damn near 70 dollars on some useless print cartidges nothing was wrong with them. The error message kept saying ADD CARTRIDGES. Anyway I'm thinking about a new printer anyhow.
