Yep, that will do that. Non genuine cartridges are notoriously un reliable and this issue is extremely common. We only recommend the use of genuine ink cartridges for all printers. Try removing the dud cartridges and put in the genuine ones. if that fails, you may have distroyed your printhead, in which case, go and replace you printer, it is cheaper than getting it fixed.

Lexmark 4350 wont print with unsupported cartridge

That's the reason why Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, refurbished or remanufactured cartridges. You may not get the quality and performance from the ink cartridges that is specially formulated and manufactured by Lexmark. I would highly recommend that you replace your refurbished cartridges and use original supplies.

Stop printing ...Repace toner very soon...If you remove and restore toner it works for a few more pages

You haven't given much information on this, so please answer these questions to get a better feel of what is going on
1) Is this a new toner cartridge that you've installed? 2) Is it a refurbished cartridge? If so, manufacturer or clone? 3) How long has it been in the printer and when did this problem start? 4) Have you tried a different toner cartridge?
It could very well be the cartridge, especially if it is a refurbished/clone (not from the manufacturer)

I went to put a new toner in my Lexmark T520 and it won't print now it comes up with incompatibility in the do I fix this?

Did you replace the toner cartridge with a Lexmark new or factory refurbished cartridge?

If not, then more than likely that's your problem. Lexmark put smart chips in the cartridges that prevents there re-use unless these chips were either replaced or scrubbed clean.

If this is a factory new or refurbished cartridge, contact Lexmark.

Cartridge cleans but then does not print

You are running low on ink that's why can print those dark bands for cleaning and not print.
1: check printing defaults = does it work in high def better? Then you need ink. (Don't overill or'll ruin the cartridge!!!!!!)

The refills are great to do yourself but only works on NON-refurbished cartridges.

Refurbished cartridges clog and don't have that much ink anyway.

Lexmark 2500 printer problems

its very possible the new cartridge is faulty. I would suggest getting another one. Some new cartridges are acutually refurbished and just refilled and sold. Eventually they stop working correctly.

Does the machine ask you to "align" the print cartridges when you turn the machine back on? If the alignment page when finished printing is missing a key color (say yellow), then the alignment will not succeed.
