You correct about that dmattia! Most manufactures put small chips in the ink cartridges. The driver software knows when you have inserted a re-filled "same cartridge". Hence you get an error.
Theres one way around this wall.
Keep at least two emptied cartridges. (Prefered three).
Go ahead & refill them & store them standing up so the nozzle does not dry out. Rotate your replacements. This works with HP's printers. With the HP's printers it's suggested to rotate three cartridges. This should work for Lexmark as well.
& please vote.

On the multi function machine seems to be a coating on the metal rod that the cartridges travel on. Just wipe this rod with a Kleenex and the problem seems to go away.
Somehow it presents a drag on the cartridges and causes an error.
Myself I would put a little bit of oil after on a cloth and wipe along the bar.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the
printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your
computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source
to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try
to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.
that doesn't help, try the steps below:
Disconnect the printer from your computer.
Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the
power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30
On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
