Lexmark e120 not working after cartridge refill

Hi,
I got the cartridge refilled, replaced it and since then the printer does not work. The status wizard always says missing or defective cartridge, even though I tried to remove and replace it several times, as well as unplug the printer. The light on the printer is on green.
Thank you

Probably the chip on the cartridge that is either faulty, or hasn't been replaced

Replace the chip, is a chip cartridge problem.

if not work try this:

31 Defective toner cartridge or missing cartridge
1. Verify that the toner cartridge and PC kit are correctly installed.
2.Wait 10-20 seconds for the printer to verify the units.
3. Replace the toner cartridge or PC kit if necessary.

I have a lexmark X3650 printer. I have refilled my black in cartridge. (Drilled the hole and refilled). The printer does not detect the refill and keeps telling me the cartridge is empty. Help please!!!


Unfortunately, the cartridge has an indicator that tells the printer what its status is. This doesn't get reset when you refill the cartridge. With some printers, you can use a few other new cartridges and then try the refilled one again. (These printers store the cartridges last used and status; but can't store a long list of "this cartridge was empty".)

I wish I could be of more help.

Error light is alway on on lexmark e120


Besides refilling the cartridge with toner there is a chip in it that you should change so the printer will know that a new cartridge is installed.

Lexmark E120 black cartridge


In their determination to keep you purchasing their ink whether you like it or not, Lexmark has circuitry built into their ink cartridges that based on measured use tell the printer when the cartridge theoretically should be empty, whether it is or not.

In the case of the black cartridge they are somewhat more lenient than in the case of the color cartridge. Eventually, when the circuitry tells the printer that the black cartridge should be empty it will continue to be refillable, and work, but will present the owner with annoying messages ranging from "you're using an unauthentic cartridge" to other things. The best thing to do in this case is to check the box that pops up telling it not to continue giving you the annoying messages. This works, but eventually may start again, after which you again check the box telling it to stop. It's quite livable though.

In the case of the color cartridge the built in circuitry will eventually tell the printer that the cartridge is empty, even if it's not because you have properly refilled it, and it simply will not function any longer. You've just wasted your ink. Natually they don't want to see you destroy your printer, which costs less than purchasing only two of their 2400% profit ink cartridges. Good luck.

Is it possible to refill ink cartridge on Lexmark x6690 printer?


Take out all cartridges, switch printer off and then on again and let printer see that there are no cartridges. Do this 5 times, it resets the cartridges. Then install refilled cartridges
