I have same problem but if you will close the low or out of ink popup and then click print it will start printing. When you run out of ink refill and keep doing the same thing. Much easier that trying tocalibrate cartridge.

Just unplug the printer from the back and plug it back in. Problem solved. I did this on my mother's printer and it worked like a charm for this same error msg and issue.

SOURCE: Refill cartridge for lexmark X6570

please note that I am not an expert, in this field just an attorney and that is why I am putting my full disclaimer right here at the top---That i am not an expert but only speaking from experience.

Earlier this morning, I just pulled the cartridges to check the Lexmark print (X6570) cartridge numbers (41&42). When I typed these numbers in on inksell.com to retrieve the price and other information for these cartridges, they did not have any refill kits or anything of that nature for these specific cartridges.

To answer your question about why the printer is not detecting that your cartridge is full is probably because the cartridge has a chip in it that essentially disables it once the original manufacturer ink is empty. tHEY [Lexmark & Dell] do not want outside competition In other words, the printer manufacturers make the bulk of the money on selling new cartridges (for a fortune) . To make matters worse, they always seem to be half empty even though they are ‘brand-new’ ink cartridges The bottom line is that the faster you can go through a printer cartridge, they can sell many more of the cartridges that they are charging us a fortune for.

Needless to say, I am just going to go and get me another HP printer. My advice would be to check to see if ink-refill kits (see sites like inksell.com) are available for any future printers that u purchase.

There are a couple ways to trick it into accepting the cartridge. You can put a different one in, take it out and then put the filled one in. Or you can find a refill kit with instructions on what contacts to cover with tape and you have to do it 2 or 3 times to get the printer to reset. Sometimes you can shut off the computer and printer for 20 min and start it up again. Or you can get the sledge hammer and smash the stupid printer before it sucks up your life savings and vow never to buy from a company that profits from causing problems that they tell you can only be solved by using more of their overpriced solutions.

SOURCE: refilled cartridge, still says it needs to be replaced...

If you let the cartridge run totally dry then they need to be reset or replaced, I have tried purchasing reset software myself and found then to be a waist of money as they do not reset the cartridge at all. Do yourself a favor and replace the cartridge and remember to top up the cartridges before they get half empty.

Instructions for refilling cartridges on a Lexmark Prevail Pro705 printer


Please note that Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges. You might not get the print quality you expect from the ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark.

I need to reset my ink levels on my lexmark s305 after refilling cartridges


I managed to successfully refill the black cartridge for the S305; I did it when the printer warned of 'very low black ink' (although it didn't print very well - i.e. grey - until the following day). It kept displaying 'low ink' but printed fine for a few months.
I think if you can catch it before the printer decides it needs an 'official' refill or replacement then it works (although when exactly this is is a mystery, as it always displays 'low' for black ink).
Yesterday, the printer decided it wouldn't print until the cartridge was changed.
Refilled; waited for half a day;replaced several times; turned the printer on and off 5 times with no cartridge in (to see if it would wipe the printer's memory of the cartridge); and spent about 4 hours online trying to find a solution.
If it starts working tomorrow, I'll let you know. I don't want to mess about with software that may reset the ink levels. (If anyone finds some that works, please post!)
It looks like Lexmark have ensured they can pile in the cash with their original cartridges.
I've heard about generic cartridges that are chipped to avoid the above problem - I'll visit my local refill store soon.
There must be a way round this!
Cheers, Fronter

I have a Lexmark X4650 I refilled the cartridge and now I cannot get the printer to recognize the cartridge it prints black only and tells me Color is low . any suggestions on how to bypass this prob get...


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't refill the Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges. Your printer deactivates the electronics on this cartridge when the ink levels get low. Your printer needs a black and a color cartridge with functioning electronics to print. I NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills easily, and have the most expensive ink across manufacturers and it is designed to clog your cartridge unless you use it quickly. If you keep this machine you are stuck buying Lexmark brand ink (the return program cartridges are a little cheaper though).

Overpriced cartridges


Hi,

Lexmark printers are notorious for over-inking. Probably the most efficient inkjet printer I've owned is an HP (any HP inkjet model). What has become quite popular as of late are refill machines at the local office supply stores. I have my cartridges refilled for less than half the price of new cartridges. Staples and Office Max both have great refill machines, and often have a reserve of pre-refilled (recucled) cartridges that they sell. I do not know your region, but most of the larger office supply stores have these great machines.

Also, if you color print on regular paper a lot, the ink soaks (bleeds) into the paper fibre and tends to waste a lot of ink. If you do not have a largfe office supply store near you, you can purchase refill kits and refill them yourself.(which can be messy, but effective).

Hope this helps.

I have a lexmark 2660series printer and cannot buy a set of ink cartridges anywhere for it as the 'order on line' prompt does not appear to have a web page


Thank you for clarifying the model.

The links that are shown in the post above are links directly to Lexmark to order cartridges from them.

If you want to order it direct from lexmark, just follow the links I provided previously, or call their order department and place the order over the telephone with a live person. that number is 1-800-539-6275 Monday thru Friday, 6am to 6pm PST

the cartridges you need are the 14 for black, and 15 for color.

there are other places you can get these cartridges other then directly from lexmark though.

For instance, these are stocked in store at most Target's. I am not sure if you have any Target stores in your area, but if you do, they should have them there. there product information is
Lexmark 15 Ink Cartridge - Color
ASIN: B0015MVV0U DPCI: 080-04-0538

Lexmark 14 Ink Cartridge - Black
ASIN: B0015MX7NY DPCI: 080-04-0537

Another alternative is to go to www.ebay.com and type lexmark 14 black in the search and you will see several auctions and/or ebay stores that sell this. Same for the Lexmark 15 color.

Good luck, and please take a moment to rate this solution.

Thank you,

Cartridge error


How I solved this problem was, I took out the color cartridge (which seem to be the one giving the error message) and worked only with the black ink (and chose print black and white )

My color ink cartridge had been refilled at Walgreens. The Black ink cartridge is an original Lexmark
