Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The black cartridge for the Lexmark x5470 printer is a snap to refill, but there is circuitry built into the color cartridge that literally measures when the cartridge should be empty, and when that time comes the cartridge won't work any longer even if the cartridge has been properly refilled. A number of places sell the ink refill kits for the x5470, but don't seem to realize that you get more than just an annoying message, that the cartridge will stop shortly after refill just because the built in circuitry tells the printer it's time to be empty. They just argue the point brainlessly not doing their homework to learn that the cartridge can't be refilled. They'll sell you the ink, but it's worthless since refilling doesn't work.
I was hoping that someone may know of a generic refillable cartridge that has been manufactured that does not contain this circuitry?
There should be a dialogue box that pops up on your computer when the cartridge is low telling you to order new ones. Usually there is a box you can check to tell it to ignore that the cartridge is low. If you don't get the dialogue box, somewhere in your printing preferences you should be able to tell it to "ignore ink levels." There does not exist a cartridge that "does not contain this circuitry." There are no compatibles of these cartridges and all refills are of original manufacturer cartridges.
