You can refill cartridges only a certain number of times.
Check the copper contacts and see if they look like new. any amount of wear and they wont work anymore. That being said, All printer manufacturers say to buy new and not refill.Maybe that is a moneymaker for them, however, I have never had good luck with refilled cartridges.

Do I need a color cartridge to print in black ink

the paper was black or blank? i think you mean blank, the ink will dry out over time replacing the cartridges will most likely solve the problem, or for the cost of the two cartridges u may want to consider a new cheap printer.

Lexmark x4850. swapped oem with non-oem black cartridge. will not print black now. message says warranty does not support non-lexmark and prints blank pages.

“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.

I have ink left in cartriges and the printer makes all the noise of printing but prints nothing. Paper comes out blank i just got the ink filled and trying to print out didn't work

It sounds to me like you don't replace the cartridges, but have the ink refilled in the cartridges? This can only be done so many times until the cartridge jets become plugged and therefore can no longer print. You can try appling alcohol to a q-tip and cleaning the cartridge's jets where the ink comes out, but most likely, you will need to purchase new cartridges and start over.

Refilling lexmark cartridges x2500

There are a couple ways to trick it into accepting the cartridge. You can put a different one in, take it out and then put the filled one in. Or you can find a refill kit with instructions on what contacts to cover with tape and you have to do it 2 or 3 times to get the printer to reset. Sometimes you can shut off the computer and printer for 20 min and start it up again. Or you can get the sledge hammer and smash the stupid printer before it sucks up your life savings and vow never to buy from a company that profits from causing problems that they tell you can only be solved by using more of their overpriced solutions.

I changed the black in cartridge in my Lexmark printer with a lexmark #16 black ink cartridge(which I have done many times. It didn't print black Colors do print). I figured the cartridge was defective so...

Wweluvgolf, sometimes after you remove the protective tap from the ink cartridge, it leaves behind tape residual. Suggest you clean the ink cartridge's copper contacts with alcohol & cotton swabs. (No dripping alcohol). Do not clean the bottom of the ink cartridge. Also clean the copper contacts in the carriage. Allow all to dry. Reassemble & try printing a test page.
In the future keep your recipts when buying ink. From time to time you will buy a bad cartridge. With the recipt you'll be able to exchange it for another (free). Always store ink in it's upright posistion.

If this did not help please let me know & post the model number of the printer.

My Dell A940 is not printing with black ink.

how long have the cartridges sat? I've noticed after about a week, that dell ink clogs up. Also, Lexmark makes most Dell printers. In my time as a cartridge refiller, we blow through dells and lexmarks and when they **** out, usually it acts like it prints, but nothing comes out printed, only blank pages

Lexmark x1180 printer all in one

Clean the contacts on the cartidge and printer ( open the replace ink door wait for the printhead to come to center and turn off power) if that does not work then replace cartridge, it might be a recycled one that they did not chane the chip.
