Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Ink cartridges. Hello, I have, not for the first time, replaced black, magenta and cyan cartridges. The printer is telling me that with one exception, they all need replacing. They are all refills not new, but all previous, except original, were refills and did not have any problems. Hope you can help me. Harold.

    Same problem, but just with the black. The previous cartridge may have been pulled out before printer registered it as empty (kids!!)...not sure if that affects things. Have tried turning printer off and unplugging, as suggested. Still won't recognized the black cart. It IS an Epson cart. I also tried using the cartridge resetter I used to use with my old Epson (because, unlike this one, it allowed me to refill the old cartridges). That also did not work. Help??

The best investment I ever made, in terms of my printers, was an ink cartridge "resetter". I ordered it long ago from one of the on-line ink refill places. It doesn't look like much but you just press the contact points on the cartridge against the metal prongs on the resetter. Wait for the green light to flash, and the printer will let you put that ****** right back in the machine, no matter how near empty it is. No telling how much money this one has saved. And, as I remember, it was a pretty inexpensive item. Hope that helps...

Take all carts out of the printer. Close cover. unplug printer. Wait for two minutes. Refill carts to full level or use new carts. Reconnect printer to power. Printer demands carts. reinsert carts as demanded. If asked press: yes. carts changed. machine should do cleaning cycle and recognize the carts as full.
If you run a brother printer always print until machine stopps printing and shows cart empty!

maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
Solution As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue. The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below: Ink colors out Option Print mode possible All Cancel None Black

AND

Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all) Black only Continue with other colors Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)

Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both) Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)

(Black still available) Print with black ink only Grayscale

You can't print in black only mode because printer need all cartridges not empty to initialized and working.Don't try to refill this cartridges, it's have a chip and you need to reset it too.Just look in your are for non OEM ink cartridges.Thea are 2-3 times cheaper.

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

The light for the magenta cartridge on my iP3500 printer goes off


The cartridge, as well as all ink jet cartridges has a chip inside that tells it how much ink is in the cartridge. Your cartridge is LYING, except it prevents you from printing without all cartridges working. ( same for my 6 color epson ). You need to replace the cartridge. I get my cartridges at a yahoo store called Inks4less. They have good quality for cheap.

There was a study done, analizing the amount of inks left in inkjet cartridges when they indicated empty, and the range was 7% to 25% ink still left.

Error message is telling us we are out of ink we just replaced


This problem needs to be addressed by an Epson service center. It needs disassembled and probably needs parts replaced that the leaking ink damaged. Sorry.

Only Prints in Magenta


The cartridges may still be at fault, or there is a problem with the processor board in the printer. I have also seen problems with the ink jets in these.
