Re: Cartridge problem

In most of the cases the refill will work for a few times then will not work one reason is because the ink gets dry inside the cartridge and second the contacts does not work when you uses that several times and the third the ink is not compatible with the printer no matter if that say for that kind of printer so if you wants to get that right get the new cartridge and end of the problem

Color wont print

It could be that your cartridge needs cleaning. Open the Lexmark Solution Center. Click Start, Programs (Windows XP: All programs), Lexmark Z600 Series. Click the Maintenance tab. Under Select a maintenance tool, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Click Print. If the printed bars in one color fade on either side of the page or are shorter than the other bars, the cartridge is running low on ink of that particular color. If there are thin lines running through the bars or if the diagonal lines at the bottom are broken, the cartridge may need cleaning. Follow these instructions:
  1. Remove the problematic cartridge or cartridges from the printer.

  2. Take a warm damp paper towel and set the ink cartridge right-side-up on it so that the ink nozzles are against the towel.

  3. Hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.

  4. Wipe the printhead (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.

  5. Next, dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.

  6. Use a clean part of your dry paper towel to make sure that the cartridges are dry and then snap them back into the printer.

  7. Select Old Cartridge install in the software.

  8. Repeat the Clean Nozzle Page test one more time.

  9. If the problem persists, you may need to replace the cartridge.

My lexmark z611 only prints blank pages with nothing on them, i bought a brand new ink cartridge that is black ink for it and it says it is low on ink for some odd reason but when i print things in color...

Mostly, printer cartridge error occurs when the printer head is unable to identify the cartridge properly. And the basic reason behind this is that the cartridge is improperly attached. To reattach the cartridge, turn on the lid of the printer and then remove the cartridge from the printer head. Check the cartridge to make sure that there are no scratches or other damaged parts that can contribute to a printer cartridge error report. Take note that the cartridge should not be left open for more than 30 minutes; otherwise the ink will start to dry up and the cartridge will get clogged.

I have a Lexmark X4650 I refilled the cartridge and now I cannot get the printer to recognize the cartridge it prints black only and tells me Color is low . any suggestions on how to bypass this prob get...

I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't refill the Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges. Your printer deactivates the electronics on this cartridge when the ink levels get low. Your printer needs a black and a color cartridge with functioning electronics to print. I NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills easily, and have the most expensive ink across manufacturers and it is designed to clog your cartridge unless you use it quickly. If you keep this machine you are stuck buying Lexmark brand ink (the return program cartridges are a little cheaper though).

Lexmark x1270 not printing in color

Is the cartridge a Lexmark cartridge or a refilled cartridge?

Remove the cartridge from the printer, take a damp paper towell and wipe the cartridge in one direction on the bottom. Is Ink coming out? If yes then put the cartridge back in the printer and try to print again. If the answer is no and the cartridge is brand new you need to return it to you point of sale and get a new one as its a bad cartridge.

If the cartridge is a refilled cartridge that is probably the problem. Lexmark printers do not support refilled cartridges.

Lexmark Z611 Printer

First, try to clean the nozzles on it. That may or may not work.

Otherwise, if you bought it new from a store, return it and get another one, sounds like the cart may be bad. If you bought it used or refilled it and have refilled it several times, the nozzles or other parts may be worn out. In that case you'll probably have to have to break down and by a new cart.

Refilling lexmark cartridges x2500

Hey....I solved the lexmark out of ink problem!!!HA!!! what you have to do if you want to refill these is "pop" off the top of the cartridge. It is not easy as it is glued down...using a small screwdriver preferably a small flat jewelers screw driver you can peel back the plastic that seperates the "lid" of the ink cartridge. you have to use a little force but you can get it off. Once you do this the cartridge will always read full!!!!!! just tape it or super glue it back on. You never have to take it off again! although I recomend cleaning the ink sponges inside every 3 refills. but this works great.....ha ha lexmark.....I got ya!!!!

Refilling a printer cartridge

Some cartridges have a natural hole in the top to screw into and make bigger, and you inject the ink here. Others you have to actually physically gently cut the top off (using a very sharp and very thin blade, i use a craft exchangeable blade kit like a pen knife) adn some just lift off. My lexmark 27 has to be sliced apart then lifts off after seal is broken. Then the ink is injected directly into the sponge areas inside as pamphlet instructs. Can you please tell me exactly what the cd said in short, to further help. Some cartridges have a ruber bung to refil into as well.
