Question about Lexmark X5150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Lexmark X5470 software rejects generic ink cartridges

Installed reasonably priced ink, printed for a few days by just ignoring the alighment error message. Now, error message 1203 appears, along with a statement about violating their warranty; software will not print.

Will attempt to remove the software and just utilize the print driver and see if that fixes the problem.

Yes this may be the trick for it.

Error 1203 is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad...

1 - try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..
or
2 - when error shows up, shut the printers power off; wait one minute and turn it back on press copy.

Ink cartridge prob


Try to remove the color cartridge from the printer and manually clean the cartridge nozzles with a damp paper towel. Here's a link to the Lexmark website to guide you on how to manually clean the nozzles http://bit.ly/9wzuAL. If this fails, maybe the cartridge has defective contacts. If this is the case, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. Thanks.

IT KEEPS TELLING ME THE RIGHT CARTRIGE IS WRONG, ERROR #1203, WE LOST OR OWNERS GUIDE


Here is what Lexmark says:

Cartridge Error: 1203 Your print cartridge has a short.
  1. Press Power to turn your All-In-One off.
  2. Unplug your All-In-One from the wall outlet.
  3. Plug in your All-In-One.
  4. Reinstall the cartridges.
If this does not resolve the problem, see More troubleshooting options, or replace your cartridges.

Also the cartridge that should be installed looks like Lexmark 32 ink for black and 33 ink for color.

Lexmark printer cannot print with black ink only, why?


Hello, Char.

Most inkjet printers are designed to require both black and color cartridges, even though you may be printing in black, only.

Please let me know if I have not understood your question.

Hope this helps.

I have a Lexmark x5470 & I get an error unsupported cartridge


Ink cartriges have chips in them, if the printer does so many prints without getting the "I've had a new Original Cart fitted" it will stop untill,you give it one, regardless if there ink or not

Im afraid it doesn't care that you only need to use the colour cartridge, it is designed to cost you money and make money for lexmark not refillers.

Welcome to our modern world, manufactures make the ink hard to recycle by incorperation of expensive chips that makes refillers, unable to make a easy dollar, because if that want to make cartridges that work they must also fit the expensive chip.

All empty cartridges have a little ink left in them because getting air in ink lines is not a thing we want.

Printer does not recognize carts


I have refilled my cartridges many, many times. A messy job, but well worth the savings. Never over fill, handle carefully.
The printer will give an error message, but just press cancel, do not order a new cartridge, Your refilled cartridge will work on the lexmark x5470. Good luck.

Lexmark X3550 ink cartridge #23 receiving error message "left cartridge incorrect" when trying to replace. Using Lexmark Cartridges only for over 1 year, now cartridge won't work.


There are a small number of #23/#24 cartridges that are not properly recognized by the printer. Lexmark has a firmware upgrade to correct this issue. The upgrade for the X3430 is available from Lexmark at:

To install the firmware upgrade,
  1. Make sure the printer is ON and connected with a USB cable.
  2. Download and run the appropriate firmware upgrade for your computer.
  3. Be sure not to disconnect or power off the printer until the upgrade is complete

When the update finishes the printer will restart and will accept the cartridges. Please contact Lexmark support if this does not fix the problem.
A similar patch is available for the X3430 and Z1420 models. See http://bit.ly/LoXxv

Refilling the Lexmark x5470 color ink cartridge: Can't


There should be a dialogue box that pops up on your computer when the cartridge is low telling you to order new ones. Usually there is a box you can check to tell it to ignore that the cartridge is low. If you don't get the dialogue box, somewhere in your printing preferences you should be able to tell it to "ignore ink levels." There does not exist a cartridge that "does not contain this circuitry." There are no compatibles of these cartridges and all refills are of original manufacturer cartridges.

Compatable black ink cartridge


Is the print out normal? If the print out is normal you just need to reset the software to know that you have a new cartridge.

If you open the printer cover, remove and then reinsert the cartridge you should have a message on your display asking you to align the cartridge. When you do this it will reset your ink levels.

If you are using a brand new Lexmark cartridge this should work find. If you are using a refilled cartridge then you will still see the cartridge as they are not supported on Lexmark products.

Make sure the cartridge is pressed completely down in the carrier. If it isn't installed correctly, the printer won't recognize that it's there. It's also possible the cartridge is defective, so in that case you should return it to the store where you bought it and get a new one.
