    I have successfully refilled my original cartridge about 6 times, but now I have put a professionally 'remanufactured' one in, it gives me the unsupported cartridge message.

    Any ideas?

    Oh, its a 2350, by the way.

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.

I have an lexmark all in printer and i just recently brought refill ink and when i install them it keep telling me unsupported cartridge please help

Though Lexmark does not recommend using refilled ink cartridges, you may try to refer to this article in the Lexmark website on Unsupported Cartridge Error on a Lexmark X3330/X3350 All-In-One to determine and resolve the problem. If error continues, try to insert a different known working cartridge. Thanks.

I have a Lexmark x5470 & I get an error unsupported cartridge

Ink cartriges have chips in them, if the printer does so many prints without getting the "I've had a new Original Cart fitted" it will stop untill,you give it one, regardless if there ink or not

Im afraid it doesn't care that you only need to use the colour cartridge, it is designed to cost you money and make money for lexmark not refillers.

Welcome to our modern world, manufactures make the ink hard to recycle by incorperation of expensive chips that makes refillers, unable to make a easy dollar, because if that want to make cartridges that work they must also fit the expensive chip.

All empty cartridges have a little ink left in them because getting air in ink lines is not a thing we want.

“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.

Disconnected printer

If the lights are solid -
The error is caused by a defective cartridge, an unsupported cartridge, an invalid refill, or a cartridge meant to be used in another geographic region.

• If the print cartridge is not installed, install it.
• If the print cartridge is installed, remove it and install a new print cartridge.

If the lights are flashing
This means the photoconducter kit needs replacing

Unsupported cartridge error

I have an X5495 Lexmark and have recently been getting this **** "unsupported cartridge" rubbish. OS is XP SP2.

My history with this printer has been:
-when new, the printer worked fine until I needed to replace the original ink tanks. I refilled them, but could not get the printer functional again....nil print at all. After much frustration, I was informed by a little birdie that the cartridges that originally come with the printer will not work if refilled. Great. They are one use only.
-replaced with genuine high yield tanks. Then worked fine. Refilled once, possibly twice with suitable non genuine ink. Still working fine.
-once black ink tank ran low this time, refilled it and symptoms of no print from Word docs, not all parts of a web page would print. Surprisingly, photos off hard disc print ok.(??????)
-replaced black with genuine tank and colour with remanufactured tank. Error message of "unsupported tank". Now no print at all.
-left new genuine black cartridge in and refitted genuine colour cartridge that I have previously refilled.
-all print now ok.....finally.

Maybe they have a copy limit or the integrated print head in the black has crapped itself????????

During this process, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver several times.
I have found that it has to be COMPLETELY uninstalled. Using the Lexmark uninstall function does not remove all parts of the software (Lexmark toolbar for one). If the software is not completely uninstalled, you will get a spurious unrelated and rubbish pop up that installation cannot continue because of "insufficient processor speed" with a spurious set of numbers after it. This message bears no relation to the solution.

I have found that you need to search and delete ALL Lexmark files that you can find after the uninstall. I have also deleted entries from registry.....1 entry only from memory (be CAREFUL with registry). Then reboot system.

The driver should then reinstall correctly and fully.

Why do they make it so damn hard? Don't think I'll buy a Lexmark next time.......
