Did you say you refilled them your self if so then buy new inks because Lexmark not will take refilled cartridges, sorry but this is down to Lexmark how they made them so it will not take refilled and cant be reset.

Refilled my lexmark cartridges but still dont work


14 and 15 won't work after refill. You can only refill 14A and 15A.
But even when you refill those, the printer will keep telling you they are empty, which is normal, neither the printer nor the computer can know that you have refilled your cartridges. The devices see cartridges by their serial number, so it resets the counter only when you pop in a new cartridge. They are ways to bypass that by resetting the ink level: use clear tape over the left hand row of sensors on the front of the cartridge and re-insert it. The ink now shows with question mark but reads as full and prints fine. You actually "fool" the printer into thinking you have put a different cartridge. This works with some printers, so I am not 100% sure it will work with yours.

Put new lexmark cartridges in my 8350 but still shows empty


It sounds like the carts are a little defective. This sounds like the situation that occurs when these carts are refilled. The only thing I think you can do is either have them replaced where you bought them, or just go into the printer properties and go to supplies page and uncheck the ink levels monitor box. This will disable the printer giving you an alert when you print....

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!!!!

Lexmark X2550 Cartridge Refilling


I just ordered a Lexmark X5495. The carts that come with it are throw aways (or return them to Lexmark to be remaned.) You can use cart. # 28a, 29a, 34 or 35 to refill, the latter two being the high yield carts. And yes the printer manufacturers are playing a cat and mouse game with us. I normally use Epson because it's easier to circumvent the tricks they employ. I understand Canon is an inexpensive printer to run also. HP and Lexmark are the costliest products to operate. There is a utility for Epson called SSC ver. 4.30 that gets around the safeguards by resetting the cart. chips and a whole lot more. Someone needs to write a utility for HP and Lexmark to replace the standard driver/ink monitors that are designed to siphon off our wallets quicker than they do ink. One more trick I've heard: when the printer is looking for a new cart have a spare cart handy and put it in in the printer. The printer will now think you have ink in the cart.(whether its empty or full) Now trying swapping it out for a refilled cart and see if that works. The point is this: the printer wants to see a new cart serial# ,not the same one that was just being used last.

Near empty yellow


Do print until the message EMPTY (Printer stopps printing). DO NOT refill or change cart when message is shown: NEAR EMPTY! You fool the printers logic. Machine counts down the rest of the ink in the cart. When you refill at that moment the counter is disoriented! To clear the counter: Unplug powercord. Take carts out. Wait 3 min. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Do use carts at full level (refill before you put them in). Works normal afterwards.
