For that printer: there are 4 color and 4 black cartridges BESIDES the #31 photo cartridge. Lexmark has made it so you MUST either, throw away or send to them, the 36 and 37, the 36XL and 37XL. The printer will never again recognize them after they are removed from the printer...
However, the 36XLA and 37XLA AND the 36A and 37A as well as the 31 Photo may be removed from the printer, refilled, and reinstalled.

I have seen some forums that say you can but a piece of BLACK tape, across the bottom row of contacts on the non-refillable cartridges....I believe there are 4 to 7 contacts across the bottom row only.....and the printer will still give you a message that it needs ink.....but it WILL print. I have not tested this theory yet though. I have just gotten the first message saying my black ink is very low.

Hope this helps and I think Lexmark Corporation Sucks for tricking people like this. (This printer comes with the NON refillable cartridges as default, but I did NOT see in the documentation that it couldn't be refilled. Nasty people........:(

Good Luck~~! mstipps@yahoo.com

    Thank you so much for this information. We had catridges 36 and 37 in our printer. After refilling, they would not print without using the color cartridge. We used your tape method, although we did not have black tape. We used blue painters tape to cover up the contacts. I must tell you it was pretty tricky to cut the tape into a thin strip that would only cover that row of contacts, but it can be done. You do get a "?" on the black cartridge indicator while printing, but it DOES print. Thanks again!

Hi I have refilled my Lexmark X5630 , BUT IT STILL SHOWS THAT THE CARTRAGE NEEDS TO BE FILLED ;PLEASE ADVICE


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

I refilled Lexmark ink cartridges 36 black and 37 colored and my lexmark printer 4650 series keeps saying empty cartridges and won't let me print. Can you Help?


36 and 37 can be refilled, but they won't work. They are "return program cartridges" as Lexmark calls them. That actually means that they CAN NOT be refilled. You need to buy 36A or 36XLA and 37A or 37XLA. Those are refillable.
Here is link to Lexmark's site, with a compatibility list.

Colour ink low on printer, cartarige refilled, but not printing in colour


Could be many things... First Is it a new cartridge? Did you refill it? If you did was it dry when you did? always fill before completely empty. First try the clean setting on your printer. Also try the prime ink if it has one. You can hold the cartridge under hot water for a few min to losen hard ink. Just the bottom of cartridge. blot dry with a paper towel. ink should show on towel. dont touch the brass part of cartridge..

Purchased 36xlcartridge


If this is a refilled cartridge, most likely the electronics have been turned off on the cartridge. I own a cartridge refilling store and I don't refill the Lexmark 36 or 37 because the printers turn off the electronics on these cartridges when they get empty so they can't be refilled. If this is an original Lexmark cartridge, I think that Lexmark is making their printers so extremely sensitive to refills that they even kick out some original manufacturer cartridges. I have had a couple customers that this has happened to and it seems to happen more frequently with prebate cartridges. I recommend exchanging your cartridge for a new one (Lexmark brand).

Refilled cartridge, still says it's empty and won't print


Sometimes when cartridges are refilled they won't always work because the ink has dried inside the nozzles and therefore no ink will come out and the printer's ink circuit detects no ink and indicates the cartridge is empty. Also sometimes the Print Head itself will clog up with dried ink and cause this very same problem. You can probably buy a new inkjet printer cheaper than you can have this one repaired. If you can afford it I would recommend replacing it with a Laser Printer that uses powdered toner, they last a lot longer and are more economical to operate than an Inkjet printer.

Refilling cartridges


Joe,

You should have received control program software with your printer. If installed, the icon should be on your desktop or it may be in your programs list. You can also get the software from the Lexmark web site.

Anyway, you probably need to reset the cartridge using the control program. It's not difficult. Just follow the prompts.

I cannot get my printer to recognize my refilled ink cartridges


“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.
