This is a common problem with most of the printers regardless of brand. Here's what you need to do:

On your computer:

Click on Start, printers and faxes, right click on your printer icon, click on properties. There should be a tick box to allow you to reset the cartridges to new....

If you get the same problem, do the following:

1. Remove the ink/cartridge from the printer
2. Clean the print head using a piece of cloth.
3. Put the ink back to the printer

Check the links below and it might help:

If you get the same problem after cleaning the print head, try resetting the printer. Here's how:

1.Switch Off the printer.
2.Press and hold the RIGHT + SELECT + GO buttons on the printer.
3.Switch On the printer , continue to hold the buttons until the printer resets.

This will reset the printer to it's factory defaults.


Hope these helps and have a great day!

    Sometimes, dirty print head is the cause of the problem. If the printer is not responding correctly, try to reset first the printer to factory default:

    1.Switch Off the printer.
    2.Press and hold the RIGHT + SELECT + GO buttons on the printer.
    3.Switch On the printer , continue to hold the buttons until the printer resets.

    After resetting the printer, check if you could take the ink cartridge out of the printer so that you could clean the print head.

    Lexmark brand is a good brand. But if you get the same problem after performing the instructions that were provided, I would suggest you to contact Lexmark for second opinion.

    Try this:

    Switch off the printer
    Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet
    Leave it unplugged for 5 to 10 minutes
    Turn the printer back on

Refilled ink printer. still shows empty on the printer,s screen


Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled/remanufactured cartridges. These tend to degrade print quality and printer/cartridge performance.
Please note that once a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer register its ink level.

I refilled my Lexmark cartridge but it continues to say I need to install a new cartridge. The printer model is x2670.


Hello there,

The reason why your Lexmark printer keeps on telling you to install new cartridge because the printer have ink cartridge detection. Meaning it will detect whether that particular cartridge is an old one or not.

Each Ink Cartridges have its code and it will be registered to the printer once you have connected it. The printer will assume the ink level and once it is empty, that particular Lexmark Ink Cartridge will be registered to your printer as an empty ink cartridge and needed to be replace with a new one.

I would suggest getting a genuine new cartridge instead of refilling the ink cartridges.

I refilled Lexmark ink cartridges 36 black and 37 colored and my lexmark printer 4650 series keeps saying empty cartridges and won't let me print. Can you Help?


36 and 37 can be refilled, but they won't work. They are "return program cartridges" as Lexmark calls them. That actually means that they CAN NOT be refilled. You need to buy 36A or 36XLA and 37A or 37XLA. Those are refillable.
Here is link to Lexmark's site, with a compatibility list.

Hope that helps!

Empty ink


Hi,

According to your problem it seems your cartridge has been damaged or choked so change your cartridge. Because some times when we use refilled cartridge, Ink goes dry and printer's sensor can not sense the ink.
