First of all as this Catridges are Non Intelligent they will not be able to show u the exact Ink level on the catridge then too if thats really happening this Solution below will fix it: In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry........... Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out....... Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds...... Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........ Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel.......... Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer the Colour Catridge should go in the right side and the Photo on the left........ Good Luck

“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Called Lexmark. Unplugged & replugged in the power supply, cleaned the cartridges, went through the internal maintanence cycle (which I didn't know existed!), tested the printer, all was fine with the printer. It was a software problem. Had to delete all the Lexmark files, then download them from the website, and reinstall. Took a while to do all this but the Lexmark tech was extremely patient and helpful.

Remove the color ink cartridge and double check that the plastic tape, which you removed from the cartridge is completely removed. I've noticed that sometimes a small piece of the protective tape tears and stay stuck on the cartridge causing the printer to give a false error. When replacing the cartridge be sure its fully inserted into the color cartridge holder and the locking mechanism locks securely.
