I still have original ink cartridges in my printer. Have Refilled all cartridges once and followed Kit instructions! I am unable to bypass the printer error message to print documents, I have set my printer to off and print auto, this sometimes works, but now I can not get one page printed. Does any one know how I can bypass this problem?

Re: iP4300 print error message
Try holding the "resume" button (triangle in circle) for about 10 seconds for each cartridge. If that doesn't work, go to a refill shop and ask if they have a re-setter for your cartridges. Most shops do. The re-setter gives new serial numbers to the cartridges, so the printer thinks you have put in new ones. Or you can buy one. In 99%, when the printer tells you that one of the cartridges is empty, it's actually not. The chip is the one that tells the printer when to stop printing. If you bypass the chip, you can continue printing. Hope that helps!

If it is still flashing empty cartridge, hold the stop/reset button down for about 10 seconds. this disables the ink levels because they can not be re-set.
If it is going through the motions of printing but nothing is coming out then try this:
Simply fill a saucer with approx 2mm of just boiled water
Place the print head in the saucer with the head in the water.
Leave the head in the water for approx 2 - 5 Mins
The Heat will assist in dissolving any blockages and help get the ink flowing
Also by using a syringe and forcing air into the top of the cartridge can help fill the lower chamber of most cartridges, this can overcome the Air-Lock issue some refilled cartridges have.
I hope this helps, if so please rate this response below

Using refilled in cartridges and incompatible inks result in the following problems.
Refilled ink cartridges might leak and cause product damage. One method for refilling ink cartridges is to drill a hole through the cartridge, refill the ink, and then plug it. In some cases this plug does not hold, and the ink runs into the product and damages the printed circuit boards.
Refilled ink cartridges frequently exhibit spotty printing or fail to print. This problem might be a direct result of the nozzles being plugged with dried ink. Because the vents of the refilled cartridges have been opened, air is able to enter the cartridge and dry the ink.
Refilled ink cartridges might exhibit lower print quality, for the following reasons.
Printing algorithms used to create the various colors are based on particular printer inks. Using incompatible inks might result in color matching problems.
Refilled cartridges might have damaged nozzle orifices, result in various problems with print quality.
company products to which the printer belongs to can use a time delay between pages to accommodate the properties of the specific media type and ink being used. This prevents smearing problems from one page to the next. Using incompatible ink will alter the effects of this time delay and might result in poor print quality.
printer might not recognize refilled ink cartridges. The refilling process may involve altering the ink cartridge enough that the product is unable to recognize it. The condition of the print cartridge electrical contacts deteriorates with use. This also results in the product being unable to recognize the refilled cartridge.
Refilled ink cartridges might get stuck in the product. Because the cartridges from other manufacturers have been altered, cartridges might become stuck in the product. This problem might require that the product be disassembled to remove the cartridge.
printer at times cannot predict the long-term effects on product reliability from using different ink formulations.
please rate my solution.
have a nice day.
Dear, this is basically an auto generated message based on system registery keys, if you want to bypass the message, then there are two ways.
1. put another cartridge in the printer and try to print, after than install the previous (original) cateridge, this will doge the printer as a new cateridge, you problem will be removed. but if you don't have another similar cateridge at hand then follow the step 2 given below.
2. Uninstall the driver, unplug the printer, restart the system and reinstall the printer dirver again, your problem will be removed.
try to clean the print head or the nozzle of the printer... you can find it on the "printer properties" and find the "maintenance" part, which you can do the cleaning process... just follow the instructions there...
Wow, nice "solution," Printech. That is BS. There has to be a way to trick this printer into using refilled ink. If not, why would they sell refilled ink kits for this printer? Cut the **** and give us a SOLUTION. I refuse to pay $30 for a "certified Lexmark" cartridge when I can spend $15 for a refilled one.
The printer will never do that, once the cartridge is spent a little divine device inside tells the printer it's been used and spent. You can still print to from the cartridge but it wont warn you when your low on ink, price you pay for not buying a new cartridge.
If its working great .......with refilled cartridge because lexmark cartridges have in build sensor which can be used only once but can try by reset :: i am not sure it will work :::
If your cartridges are not being detected when they are snapped in, do the following: Open the cover of the printer and unsnap both cartridges. Snap them back in after a few seconds. Close the cover. Repeat these steps (1-2) three or more times in succession. You will be prompted to go through the menu on the printer display to finish the process. Follow the instructions displayed. If your printer is posting a LOW INK LEVEL or CHANGE CARTRIDGE error, snap the cartridges in and out as directed above (steps 1-3). When you close the front cover, you should see the message Cartridge Change - NEW on the display. Press Select to indicate that you have just installed a new cartridge.
