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? I have the same problem but when I tried the answer from pyramidhvacr
the black cartridge was not recognized as a ready cartridge and the printer still wanted me to replace it. if it worked on the first guy's printer it's because he left the color cartridge in the printer and he printed with the color cartridge. Mine did that too but the ink didn't look really black so I pulled the color cartridge and tried it with just the black cartridge and it didn't work. Any one else got an answer to this one?

I managed to get it working, just damage the connection point (where the chip is). I used a knife to break part of the connection and now I can fill the cartridges myself for a fraction of the price :)

I have a lexmark x5650 , and belongs to the 5600 - 6600 series.
Lexmark have 2 cartridges that cannot be refilled,
NR:36 / NR:37. But i belive it can be done.
Now! i just Bought 2 cartridges NR:36A / NR37A they are identical
To the Cartridges NR:36 (Black) / NR:37 (Colour),
But the electronics in NR:36A / NR:37A will stop printer to
Recognising them when it´s empty, and you can refill with no
probs.
This really works , even that ink level monitor shows empty
in your computer and level monitor on printer.
it will still continuing printing as new.
But i hate empty monitors.
-------------------------------------------------------------
But if there is a driver that can reset the lexmark from start,
and clear memory from what it has memorised from what cartridges
it has used , it probably show the old ones as new again and the
ink level monitor will be 100%. And then it probably doesnt matter
if you use NR:36 or NR:36A because the printer will read them as
new cartridges again.
--------------------------------------------------------------
When i refill my cartridge i sure would like to have a ink level
monitor that shows me when it´s time to refill again not make a guess when it´s time to refill.
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the prog.Folders of lexmark ,you have Dll files , i opened up
1 of them and checked , this is the info you get,
(BLOCK "StringFileInfo" BLOCK "040904b0") And in system 32

lexmark printer dll files
(BLOCK "StringFileInfo" BLOCK "040904b0")
(BLOCK "StringFileInfo" BLOCK "000009B0")
VALUE "FileDescription", "Windows XP Printer Driver"
VALUE "ProductName", "Windows 2K/XP Printer Driver"
BLOCK "VarFileInfo"
VALUE "Translation", 0x0000 0x04B0
---------------------------------------------------------------

This shows how printer memorise and save into computer printer
dll files.
But if reset the printer it will erase this info and start from
beg, with new info.
---------------------------------------------------------------
There must be a reset driver to download somewhere for lexmark
printers and i hope someone has it.
It´s nothing wrong to own a lexmark printer,it´s a good quality printer.
---------------------------------------------------------------
I hope this info make new ideas for you all.
And i hope to find a reset driver , counter reset.

I have just found out that the no. 36 & 37 cartridges are in the Lexmark return program where you can get money off new cartridges by returning the old ones. That's probably why they have some sort of fuse in them so they can't be refilled. You can however buy the more expensive no. 36A & 37A cartridges which are apparently refillable. I haven't tried this out yet but I shall be buying these next. Here is a link explaining it:

I replaced a lexmark x4650 black ink cartridge #36 with another lexmark #36. when I try to print I get an error message stating that the left cartridge(the one I replaced is incorrect). Any suggestions?


You might have put it in incorrectly. Sometimes it could be as simple as taking the cartridge out and putting it back head but make sure it is snapped in correctly. Also, you could try unplugging the machine, taking the cartridge out and then replacing it once the machine is on. That could work as well. If it doesn't let me know.

Good job in re-seating the cartridges into the printer. Try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge has gone bad.

If you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges and you've already tried rebooting your printer and reseating the color cartridge in the ink cartridge carrier, then it could be a faulty color cartridge. Your cartridge may need to be replaced from the retail store where you bought it from. If it's beyond the return period, in that case, you'll need to contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Refill lexmark 37xl ink


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we do not refill the Lexmark 36 and 37. The reason is that your printer turns off the electronics on the cartridge when the ink gets low, so you can't reuse the cartridge. Your printer will only function with an electronically functioning cartridge. We NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills a lot of the time, and across manufacturer their ink costs the most and is designed to clog the cartridge if you don't use it fast enough. We recommend HP printers that take integrated print head cartridges and Canon printers that take tank style cartridges.

I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't refill the Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges. Your printer deactivates the electronics on this cartridge when the ink levels get low. Your printer needs a black and a color cartridge with functioning electronics to print. I NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills easily, and have the most expensive ink across manufacturers and it is designed to clog your cartridge unless you use it quickly. If you keep this machine you are stuck buying Lexmark brand ink (the return program cartridges are a little cheaper though).

Won't Print x4650


Hi
Here are a few possibilities...
1. Try cleaning the contacts on the inkjet cartridge and where they make contact inside the printer. (use cotton wool and Alchol) if that does not work...
2. Pull out power cable from printer wait 1 MINUTE then insert cable and switch back on again. (some printers reset to factory settings)
3. Remove printer cable from computer... Uninstall Printer driver from computer... Switch off both printer and computer. Wait 1 minute... Reconnect cables and switch on printer and computer... Allow computer to find printer reinstall driver.
4. Try installing old cartridge to see if printer rejects that?
5. You may have a faulty inkjet cartridge (return it to store if so)
