I bought re-inked cartridge for Lexmark It didn't work

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.

My lexmark x3470 wont recognise compatible ink Cartridges any know of a way round this


If the ink cartridges you purchased are not Lexmark - that could be the problem. I used to have a Lexmark printer and I did the same thing - I purchased ink cartridges that were compatible but not Lexmark brand. Everything seemed fine until I tried to print and then I would get the same error sign and low ink message and it would not print. I kept thinking I was doing something else wrong and tried everything. In the end I broke down and got ink cartridges from Lexmark and that solved the problem. Now I have a Brother printer and I never buy anything other than Brother ink cartridges because I'm always afraid of that same thing happening again. I wish I knew which printers WOULD accept those non name brand ink cartridges, but thus far I do not know of any printers that do. Hope this helps you.

Installed new ink cartridge and will not show that cartridge has been installed- tried 28A and didn't work - picked up 28 cartridge and installed same problem


Please note that if you have refilled your 28A cartridge, it can no longer register it's ink level. However, since you also tried a different cartridge which did not fix the problem, I would recommend you to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have a lexmark x8300 printer (all in one). in the past I have been successfully using refilled black no.32 and colour no.33 cartriges. However it used to say 'low ink replace cartridge' but it had always...



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Lexmark 2300 series


yes you can refill the cartridge.

Each kit includes 3 bottles of photo ink (1 bottle each of photo black-photo cyan-photo magenta) plus all refill-tools and instructions needed to successfully refill your Lexmark 18C0031 cartridge.
The trick to extending it's life is to know how to add Ink, and to only use Ink which matches the ink which originally came with your cartridge. Each cartridge is manufactured to work with a specific type of Ink, and will not work correctly with anything different.

Lexmark X2530 won't accept re-inking of cartridges


This is a trick that is used on some of the HP printers. Try this, you will need at least 3 maybe 4 cartridges. The printer stores the chip ID in memory for the last 2 or 3 cartridges installed, so, take an old cartridge number 1 and install in the printer, reset power. Next step, take old cartridge 1 out and install old cartridge 2 in, let it come to ready or tell you to replace empty, then install your refilled cartridge. You just have to remove from its memory the chip ID of the refilled cartridge. You can fool it by doing this each time you refill. Can't guarantee this will work with lexmark, but it does work with HP.
Hope this helps,

Lexmark X2530 won't accept re-inking of cartridges


Yes it is true although I don't know any work arounds because modern machines are very particular about their ink.

We have such resolution and vibrant colours being deployed in microscopic "guns" that dont like foreign matter running threw them.

Manufactures these days spend vast sums of money producing expensive chips that they attach to their ink cartridges that comunicate with printer telling it it's age, usage, serial number and where it has been.

They also embed in the specialised partical size controlled ink, cleaning fluids and lubricants for the print head. They make these chips unique to their needs and hence expensive to copy, keeping competors inferior products expensive to produce

Don't scream too loud any thing is eventually hacked and as more hacked chips become available in the market so do the refills, which is great because I spend a lot of my working days, repairing their devestation.

I see the end results of recycle products in printing enviroments, most calls are related, not to normal maintence, power surges, board faults, mechanical failure, but to software problems, inferior or incorrect consumable use and restoring print quality after such items have infiltrated system with a little normal wear and tear to complete my working day.

Some times on some models you can buy after market chips, shop around have a google, but remember I'm not selling here and I don't care which way you.

Tie your own rope, save a few bucks, you will soon be in the market paying those like me, big buckas, cause you've got lines, blank prints, error codes etc, and again you will be buying new.

Where is the money that you save = it goes to purchase cost of replacing machine, my repair bills, your frustration at inferior/loss of operation and downtime.

Change all ink message


Your Lexmark cartridges may be like my HP ones--they have a chip that the machine reads so they cannot be reused without doing some tricks to fool the printer.

My HP remembers the last 2 or 3 cartridges and also will not use ones that have passed the expiration date that is stamped on the cartridge. I'll tell you what worked for my HP.

Check the date on your ink cartridge.  I bet it has expired. If you put in a "new"cartridge but it is even an HP one with an older date, it may not work.
I had my printer stop in the middle of a print job.  It was printing fine and suddenly would not print.  So I refilled the cartridge with an ink kit I had on hand and reinserted it--no go!  Then I opened a remanufactured cartridge I had bought some time ago and inserted it.  No go, despite the fact I could see ink coming from the jets.  I finally gave up and bought a new HP ink cartridge, and it worked just fine.  But it bugged me why the new one would work and the other two that seemed just fine would not.

Later I learned that HP has a chip that reads the expiration date on the cartridges and that is what keeps those old ones from printing.  I found one trick of setting my date on my computer back to a year earlier than the exp date on the cartridge.  I saw the date on the remanufactured one I had tried earlier was 2005, so I set my computer date to today date but year 2004.  After forcing me to do print alignments several times and take the remanufactured cartridge out and put it back, I got it to print just fine.  And that 2005 cartridge that would not work earlier is what I am printing with right now.
Be advised, though, if you try the date setback, that HP printer will buck and try every way to not let you use that old cartridge.  You must say no to reflashing if HP tries to pull that on you.  And you will take out and put back that same cartridge multiple times and keep printing alignment sheets 3 or 4 times before you are successful.  But, if you persist, you can get it to work.
