Question about Lexmark JetPrinter 5000 InkJet
I have re-inked cartridges for many years with great success, but it seems as if Lexmark has built in a microchip either in the printer or the cartridge refusing re-inking. Is this suspicion true and if so how can I bypass the problem? The message I get is simply: Replace cartridge/ invalid cartridge or something like that. It does not even try to print until I put in a new cartridge.
Yes, Lexmark has been making their new printers smarter to reject refilled cartridges. Most likely what is happening is your printer is turning off the electronics on the cartridge when it gets empty so you can't reuse that cartridge. I own a Cartridge World printer cartridge refilling store and I've even had customers return original Lexmark cartridges because their printers have rejected them. If you want to be able to refill your cartridges never buy a Lexmark printer. HP printers that use integrated print head cartridges can be refilled nicely.
