Just lift open the cover on the printer, wait for the ink cartridges to slide into view, release the cartridge that you are replacing,.........

then open the box to your new cartridge, on the bottom is aprotective plastic tab (it's obvious if you look, it keeps the ink contact points clean) Remove that... plug the cartridge in........it will go in rather easy, just be sure to line it up........

Close the Lid

Try to Priint.

How do I change the print cartridges?


  • Open the printer cover and prop it up with the support brace located on the right-hand side of the cover.
  • Remove the black FINE ink cartridge from its container and locate the protective tape. Gently remove the protective tape used to cover the print head nozzles and electrical contacts.
  • Insert the black FINE ink cartridge into the printer slot labeled "B." It will rest on a slight angle. Push the cartridge up and back until it clicks into place.
  • Repeat the process for the color FINE ink cartridge, placing it in the slot labeled "C."
  • Raise the printer cover slightly to loosen the support brace. Fold the brace inward and replace the cover to its closed position.
  • A green LED light will flash on top of the printer. In about a minute, the LED stops flashing and displays "1." Once the "1" appears, you're ready to print.

    I changed my ink cartridge, but the top cover won't close properly, and I keep getting a "cover open" error message---i am pretty sure the cartridge is in the right way. suggestions?


    Lift the printer cover. There is a slot on the right side by the ink cartridges. Push the end of your little finger into the slot. Close the lid. I know this sounds lame, but it has helped me many times. It seems the latch will stick and this usually unsticks it.

    Need to change the ink cartridge on lexmark model #x2350


    1- Turn the printer on by pressing the power button. Usually, the power button is located on top of the Lexmark printer. If the Lexmark printer does not power on immediately, then hold the button down for a few seconds before releasing it. Once the Lexmark printer has powered on, the installed cartridges will begin to move back and forth for a few minutes.
    2- Raise the Lexmark printer cover up towards you. Doing this will give you instant access to the inside components of the Lexmark printer. Lift the cartridge release lever and remove any installed ink cartridges. Be careful when doing this because the ink may leak out. It's best to have a disposable bag or paper towel near you when performing these steps 3- Remove the plastic from the brand new cartridges by carefully cutting them open with scissors or tearing along the perforated edges. Once you have removed the plastic, there's a yellow tag located near the bottom of the ink cartridge. Take this tag off only when you're ready to insert the ink cartridges into the slots.
    4- Tear the yellow tag from the ink cartridges and place them into their corresponding slots. Each one will be easily identified by its color. The cartridge release lever will have the same color as the ink cartridge. If you mistakenly place the cartridges in the wrong slot, then you'll risk having your Lexmark printer stop working properly.
    5- Press the ink cartridges into the slots and listen for a clicking noise after the insertion. Although you will need to firmly place the ink cartridges into the available slots, it still needs to be done gently. Close the Lexmark printer cover when you’ve completed the previous steps. Wait a few minutes for the Lexmark printer to recognize that you have inserted brand new ink cartridges. After a few seconds, it will go through some diagnostic steps to make sure the ink cartridges were correctly inserted.
    6- Print a test page on your Lexmark printer. This will help you to determine if the ink cartridges are properly working. You can view the newly printed images and text after the Lexmark printer has finished printing. Get rid of your used ink cartridges by throwing them away or sending them to an online store that accepts empty ink cartridges.
