Question about Lexmark X2600 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Refilled cartridge, still says it needs to be replaced...

I refilled my Lexmark 2600 color ink cartridge #15, but it won't print and says that "color cartridge replacement is required."Any ideas to make it work? Do I just need to give up and go buy a new one? I've refilled other printer cartridges before and they always worked. Oh, btw, The cartridge I tried refilling was the original cartidge which came with purchase. The label says, "Licensed for single use." Would that matter?

    I have exactly the same problem, I have refilled the color cartridge but it still says the color cartridge replacement required.

    I am from India and my cousin bought this printer to me and unfortunately here in India lexmark niether having services nor any parts or catridges.
    My color cartridge got empty last week and then i always get the message says the color cartridge replacement required and select Complete-A print to use the black cartridge.

    Now I have refilled the color cartridge and i am still getting that message. I have tried many options and could not help my self and left with no option now.

    If anyone can provide me the solution to this, i would greatly appreciate.
    Thanks in Advance

If you let the cartridge run totally dry then they need to be reset or replaced, I have tried purchasing reset software myself and found then to be a waist of money as they do not reset the cartridge at all. Do yourself a favor and replace the cartridge and remember to top up the cartridges before they get half empty.

My Pinnacle Pro 901 is set to print using black ink only but it keeps telling me I need to replace color cartridges and won't print.


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.

Blue and yellow not printing


Just make sure you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges. Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, remanufactured or clone cartridges, you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.
Try cleaning the cartridge nozzles using the Lexmark software installed on your computer instead:1. On your computer, go to Start menu.2. Go to Programs.3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.5. From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean it from dirt and possible clogs.
Should the problem continue, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center to have your genuine cartridge replaced. They might ask for your receipt so have them ready. If you're not using genuine supplies, please replace your cartridges with original supplies.

I have a Lexmark X4650 I refilled the cartridge and now I cannot get the printer to recognize the cartridge it prints black only and tells me Color is low . any suggestions on how to bypass this prob get...


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't refill the Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges. Your printer deactivates the electronics on this cartridge when the ink levels get low. Your printer needs a black and a color cartridge with functioning electronics to print. I NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills easily, and have the most expensive ink across manufacturers and it is designed to clog your cartridge unless you use it quickly. If you keep this machine you are stuck buying Lexmark brand ink (the return program cartridges are a little cheaper though).

I put in a new color cartridge and my printer, not compatible..


Consider this: Using name brand cartridges is more expensive... but works. If you're using the name brand replacements... good. If you've chosen to use refilled ink, some of the features do not work as well as the original replacements. I used refilled cartridges in my Lexmark All-In-One and the "Ink needs refill" applet did not work correctly... so I turned it off...

My Lexmark z22 printer will not print corretly


“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Lexmark x1270 not printing in color


Is the cartridge a Lexmark cartridge or a refilled cartridge?

Remove the cartridge from the printer, take a damp paper towell and wipe the cartridge in one direction on the bottom. Is Ink coming out? If yes then put the cartridge back in the printer and try to print again. If the answer is no and the cartridge is brand new you need to return it to you point of sale and get a new one as its a bad cartridge.

If the cartridge is a refilled cartridge that is probably the problem. Lexmark printers do not support refilled cartridges.

Thanks
