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!

Left ink cartridge incorrect


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

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.

I have installed a black 23 print cartridge in my x3550 printer, and it is indicating that the cartridge is incorrect, however, this is the same cartridge that is required.


Left/Right Cartidge Incorrect - huh? The printer is saying Left Cartridge Incorrect or Right Cartridge Incorrect,
and you are sure that you inserted the correct cartridge, a #23 or #24.


A small number of #23/#24 cartridges will report as Incorrect Cartridge because
of a manufacturing issue. There is a firmware upgrade available to fix this problem, and allow
the printer to accept the cartridge.


3500-4500 Series (X3550, X4550)


3400 Series (X3430)


1400 Series (Z1420)


To apply the upgrade:

  1. Make sure the printer is turned ON and connected with a USB cable.
  2. Download and run the appropriate update program using the links above.
  3. Be careful not to disconnect or turn off your printer while it is being updated.




When the update is complete the printer should automatically restart and accept the #23/#24 cartridges.

Clear Carrier Jam + Right Cartridge Incorrect


aussie_jay09,

If your printer is brand new, just out of the box, than repack the printer back in the box and march it right back to where you purchased it from. Your printer is classed under manufacturer criteria as DOA, which means dead on arrival. It is nothing you are doing, the printer is simply faulty and needs to be returned to your supplier for exchange. It happens sometimes and I am sorry you are on the receiving end.

To be more technical about it, from what you are saying it sounds as though you have a faulty print mechinism. This is the central core part of the printer and I have seen this issue on many occasions.
