There are a small number of #23/#24 cartridges that are not properly recognized by the printer. Lexmark has a firmware upgrade to correct this issue. The upgrade for the X3430 is available from Lexmark at:



To install the firmware upgrade,
  1. Make sure the printer is ON and connected with a USB cable.
  2. Download and run the appropriate firmware upgrade for your computer.
  3. Be sure not to disconnect or power off the printer until the upgrade is complete

When the update finishes the printer will restart and will accept the cartridges. Please contact Lexmark support if this does not fix the problem.
This works for the X3550 and X4550 models. A similar patch is available for the X3430 and Z1420 models. See http://bit.ly/LoXxv

Have a lexmark x5495 and have new cartridges. when printer is turned on, message states left cartridge incorrect.


Make sure that you are inserting genuine Lexmark cartridges and the correct versions for your model. The Lexmark X5495 takes 28/34 black or 29/35 color cartridges.
Try to re-insert your left cartridge and make sure it is properly seated in the carrier.
You can also try to reinsert your old left cartridge to determine if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

Left cartridge incorrect on Lexmark X4550


Hello,

Both pad styles should work just the same in your printer. You need to take the cartridge back to the store and have them replace it. From time to time in the manufacturing process 1 or more contacts will mis-connect and you get the error you are talking about.

Lexmark x4550 install new cartridge but printer read incorrect


Are you using a Lexmark factory new cartridge or a re-filled / third party cartridge. If the answer is that you are using re-filled or a third party cartridge that is your failure. Lexmark does not support the use of these products in there products. In fact, use of these type of products is considered to be -product tampering and will cause Lexmark to void the printer's warranty. Please do not shoot the messenger for the contents of the message. Truth is Truth!

Have a error message left cartridge incorrect


Hey!

Are you using Jet Tec ML32 Cartridge re-manufactured cartridges or genuine Lexmark Cartridge?

If it is the Jet Tec cartridge then it is known to be faulty - purchase a Lexmark cardridge and you should be fine.

If it is the Lexmark Cardridge then I would recommend taking all of the cartridges out, turning the printer off (from the power), turning it back on, inserting the cartridges again and checking if it works.

If none of the solutions work, then your cartridge is damaged and should be replaced.

Cheers,
