Lexmark 2500 - just replaced both ink carts; still says I'm empty

New carts in, but it won't print. Insists I'm out of ink! Carts came right out of foil wrap. I am having the exact same issue. I called walgreens and asked if they refill my cartridges (28,29) they told me that 28a and 29a are the same thing and I brought them in. Now I cant get the printer to recognize that they are there.....

    Spoke with a manager at Walgreens. She confirmed that they should not have filled them and offered me a refund...too bad they want to keep the cartridges and I can no longer send them back now.....

What cause lose of new ink on aligning cartridges.


Unfortunately, the printer does not actually measure the ink in the carts, but measures how many droplets called for. The carts may actually be full, but the printer now thinks they're empty. Most likely the black ink needs to be "charged" because you've cleaned out the pipe. I don't know what to do to charge it, and you'll likely need new carts.

Put new lexmark cartridges in my 8350 but still shows empty


It sounds like the carts are a little defective. This sounds like the situation that occurs when these carts are refilled. The only thing I think you can do is either have them replaced where you bought them, or just go into the printer properties and go to supplies page and uncheck the ink levels monitor box. This will disable the printer giving you an alert when you print....

Refilling lexmark cartridges x2500


Hey....I solved the lexmark out of ink problem!!!HA!!! what you have to do if you want to refill these is "pop" off the top of the cartridge. It is not easy as it is glued down...using a small screwdriver preferably a small flat jewelers screw driver you can peel back the plastic that seperates the "lid" of the ink cartridge. you have to use a little force but you can get it off. Once you do this the cartridge will always read full!!!!!! just tape it or super glue it back on. You never have to take it off again! although I recomend cleaning the ink sponges inside every 3 refills. but this works great.....ha ha lexmark.....I got ya!!!!

My MFC-210C always says replace ink.


Try this: Unplug machine from power. Wait 5 min.  Open scanner cover and take the carts out of the holder. Close cover. Plug machine to power. Machine will cycle and demands the carts. Use all NEW carts: Insert carts as demanded and answer question shown on display.

Always print until machine STOPPS printing because of EMPTY cart. Change cart then and machine will print the rest of job!
Plz, never change carts when it says NEAR EMPTY: This will cause a lot of trouble ;-)

First, wouldn't print black, now won't print magenta- all new cartridges!


Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart). If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality. In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink. DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!

Inputting new ink cartridges


Error 1102 means cart error. Try cleaning the copper contacts on the cart and the contacts in the printer also. If still fails, then put old carts and check if u still get same error. If u dont get the error then there is a problem with the cart itself. But if you have bought a refilled cart then the print heads on the carts are bad. Needs replacement.
