Lexmark advertises the cartridges supplied with this printer as cart. #28 and #29. They claim these are nonrefillable. The refillable cartridges are #28a,29a, 34 and 35, the last two being the high yield carts. Make sure you have one of these.

SOURCE: can't find tool box to check ink level - HP 6310 using Vista 2007

doesnt matter most printers have a feature of their own to check ink levels.
press the setup button on the printer and scroll down(with the arrow buttons) till you get tools press ok and now scroll through until you get ink level and select it by pressing the ok button,walla you should have your ink levels in front of you.

Now about the hp solution centre/hp director icon on your desktop (if you have installed the software).
Click on settings and click on printer toolbox and now check your estimated ink levels it will show the ink levels of the printer cartridges.

SOURCE: need to reset ink levels on printer (lexmark 2600)

Hi
It is the chips on the inks that make it shore empty nothing you can do about it.

But I have found this bit of read up on the internet forum Gave it a go may work if it works come back let us know so I can pass it on to others Thanks.

1 Take a small pice of clear tape. Try covering one of the outside vertical row of contacts at thr front of the cartridge. Re-insert it and it shoudl "fool" the printer into thinking it is a new cartridge. It works for my Lexmark 2600 series all in one.



2 Use clear tape over left hand row of sensors on front of cartridge and re-insert. ink now shows with question mark but reads as full and prints fine.

3 I had fully covered the contacts because it was the full length of my Scotch tape. It did not work. I went back and re-read thread, wiped the contacts the computer was telling me, took off the strip and put on just a sliver covering the left vertical side of the contact only. It worked! Yippee! Thanks a million!

Printer says cant print until cyan ink is replaced. Have replaced it with 2 different cartridges, but still wont print


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer will prime every once in a while thus the need for all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Printer-printhead replaced but paper is coming out blank


Make sure that your printer's firmware is up-to-date. The firmware update for the Lexmark Interpret S405 printer addresses print quality issues. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install Lexmark S400 Series Firmware Update. If more than one download is listed for your model, choose the first download in the list. If it is the wrong firmware level, an error message will tell you which firmware level is correct.
After updating your printer, please run the Deep Clean Printhead one time. From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Then try to print your document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Lexmark S405 refill cartridge reset


When a Lexmark cartridge is refilled, it will not be able to report its ink level.
Please note that all Lexmark printers work best when original supplies or genuine Lexmark cartridges are used. We do not recommend the use of third party, refilled or remanufactured cartridges - you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.

The Lexmark S405 printer requires all cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing.

The 100/100XL cartridges are not licensed to be refilled. You can, however, refill the 100A or 100XLA cartridges available on the Lexmark website at http://www.lexmark.com. You should be aware that a refilled cartridge will not be able to report its ink level, and you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.

How can I refill lexmark s405 cartridge and get printer to show full level?


Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled/remanufactured cartridges. These tend to degrade print quality and printer/cartridge performance.
Note that when a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer register its ink level.

Can lexmark s405 cartridges be re-set and refilled


You can use the Lexmark 100A's or the 100XLA's for refilling purposes (available in Lexmark.com). However, once refilled, it can no longer report its ink level. Also, print quality may not be the same as genuine Lexmark cartridges. Visit the Lexmark website for other ways to save money on ink. Thanks.
