    This is GREAT for Lexmark, but not so great for the owner.What a rip-off this company is.Their printer costs LESS than the cartridges! NEVER buy one! Their cartridges last a very short time,,,you will pay 3 times the amount for the cartridges than the printer itself in as little a 3 months! Buy a decent machine in the first place!

“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

I use 3rd party ink and why my color ink light up at my printer pixma mp 287


This will either be because your printer is having trouble recognising the cartridges or warning of low ink because the cartridges have been refilled. Connect a computer to the printer and it will hopefully give you more info.

If your printer cannot recognise the cartridges try wiping the contacts on the front of the cartridges and re-installing. If your printer still doesn't recognise the ink cartridges then sadly they will need replacing.

If it is just a low ink warning then carry on printing untill the printer thinks the cartridges are empty and prevents you from printing. You can them get around this message by pressing the stop/reset/resume button for 5 seconds and continue printing. More information on this can be found here: http://www.refreshcartridges.co.uk/igloo/the-infamous-canon-resumestopreset-button/

Hope this helps.

Tri colour problembought to refilled cartridges one displays problem other table, is it the refilled cartridges or the printerwrong cartridge 344 not compar


Hello!
When the printer tells you "wrong cartridge", it is because it cannot recognize the cartridge.
Remove the color cartridge and gently wipe the electric contacts on it with a dry cloth. Put the cartridge back in and check for error messages.
If the problem persists, you will need to buy a new color cartridge, because the one you have is damaged- one of the contacts on it has blown, and when you place it in the printer, it won't recognize it, because one of the contacts is missing (that is why some printers give a warning sign "cartridge missing").
Hope that helps!

Ink is not showing up when I print but the cartridges are full


Hello there!

Did you used that catriges before and refilled them now?
IF you done that, somethimes ends of catriges(their holes) can be stucked with jonized colour and they can close the path of your catridge ink to your paper. You need to do regular cleaning, take a bit of alcohol, make it be about 20% alcohol 80% water, put on a little peace of rubber, clean your catridge "lenses" and try again on your Printer.

If this is not working then concider that your catriges maybe are out of ink.

Sincerely
Aleksandar Adzic

Color ink cartridge says empty i just filled it


When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck

Printer MP160 service error 5010 after refill catridge


I had refilled the catrige, then when I start to print a 'service error' window will appear. At the LCD screed shows E.. 4 ..2. I believe the printer simply assume the catridge is depleted, but how can it happened as I already just refilled it.
How to make printer detected the catridge as a full? I really hope you can solve and make my refilling mission succesful and my printer work again.

Ihave a Canon Pixma MP150. Not long since had ink refill, working perfect yesterday and now saying ink cartridges cannot be recognised why is it saying this now. Please can someone help with this problem....


i just refilled my ink cartridges black and color ones, but my warning sign still reads that my cartridges are low. How do I tell it, it has new ink cartridges or refills? I printed a test page and an alignment page, thinking it would somehow get the picture, but not yet.
