Question about Lexmark X4530 InkJet Printer

Open Question

Lexmark 4530 right cartridge incorrect message. unplugged unit, cleaned cartridge nothing works. I have a Lexmark X4530 printer, inserted a new genuine 24 color cartridge in the right slot, error 'right cartridge incorrect'. I even downloaded and installed the latest driver. This is the second time this has happened. The only solution I have found is to try a different 24 from a different store (maybe a bad batch of 24s?)

SOURCE: lexmark 4530 right cartridge incorrect

The compatible cartridges for the X4530 Lexmark printer are the # 23,23A,24,24A,31,34,35. If you have the correct cartridge number and still says cartridge incorrect, try this steps.
1. Get a damp and a dry paper towel.
2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds. ( try this for around 5 times )
3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. ( try this around 5 times )
4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
5. Remove the power adaprtor behind the printer.
6. Using the dry paper towel, clean the metal contacts on the cartridge carrier inside the printer. ( try this 5 times )
7. Place the Cartridge back to the printer, connect the power adaptor.
8. Check if there is any error message. If same problem persist, try to contact Lexmark Technical Support.

SOURCE: Lexmark X4530 Incorrect Cartridges.

By any chance did you get these cartridges refilled? If so then you may be out of luck as I read that Lexmark chip their cartridges/printers to reject refilled cartridges. I have the same problem at the moment just with the right (colur) cartridge. The cartridge is an original refillable Lexmark (i.e. grey box) I got the cartridge refilled twice and it worked fine, but the third time no joy. Research indicate that Lexmark program their printers to reject cartridges refilled 3 times!!

You must upgrade your firmware on your printer.

Lexmark has a technical support bulletin :

SOURCE: Refilled Lexmark X4530. Printer continues to show

It is highly unlikely to be a driver issue.

Most modern cartridges have an ink level chip built on to them.

Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.

If you are lucky you should be able to find either a resetter
-cli8-pgi5.html" rel=nofollow target=_blank>chip resetter around on the internet

OR

Even better empty cartridges that never need to be reset.

That's the option I like I realise these are not for your specific printer but there are others listed on both those sites as well

I have a lexmark X4530 and just recently it tells me that the right ink cartridge is incorrect


Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

Make Sure you Insert the Cartridges in the Right Slot!

Good Luck!!!!

Try to remove both black and color cartridges from the printer. Close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, re-insert both cartridges and make sure they are properly seated and secured in the carrier. Close the cover. If error continues to show on the display screen even if interchangeably insert your 35 or 33 cartridge, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

INSERTED NEW COLOR CARTRIDGE 24 ERROR INCORRECT CARTRIDGE


Yes, you should return this cartridge to Office Depot. I own a cartridge refilling store and I've had a couple customers that buy original manufacturer cartridges that don't work in their machines. What I suspect is happening is that the manufacturers are making their printers stringently check the cartridges to make sure they are not refills and that this stringency is also occasionally kicking out their original cartridges.

I replaced a new lexmark 23 print cartridge in my X4530 printer.


This happens from time to time. I have bought new 22 & 23 cartridges for my Lex. x3350 before with "flawed" contacts. Either return it for refund or buy a new one. Thw next working one you get, try re filling it. I get mine refilled at Walgreens. Cost for me in Texas is $10 for black and 15 for color. I refill them 4 times before I replace with new. Saved me a ton of money.
