Left cartridge incorrect


Is it a factory new cartridge, or was it refilled somewhere?
It's more likely to be bad if it's a refill. If it wasn't the Lexmark label on the box, it's a refill.

Put the old one back in to see if you get the same error. If you get no error, your new cartridge is bad, get a replacement.

Why does my lexmark x5320 keep saying left cartridge is incorrect?


It is very likely the ink cartridge is defective, i would suggest you remove it an few times and then reinstall it, if the message still appears replace the cartridge.

1 Answer

My printer continues to say that my left cartridge is incorrect and my right cartridge is incorrect. I have misplaced my printer booklet.


- Make sure you are inserting the correct cartridge versions for your model. The Lexmark X5470 uses 32 or 34 black cartridge and 33 or 35 color cartridge.
- Ensure that both your cartridges have plenty of ink in them and not empty.
- You can also try to insert different known working cartridges to determine if what you're currently using is faulty or not.
- Try to remove the cartridges from your printer > close the printer cover > unplug/re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it > when the printer turns on, reinsert both cartridges.
Hope this helps.

Left cartridge incorrect for lexmark x5470


Check to see if the installed cartridge is the correct one for the printer. . If the cartridge is the proper part number, remove the ink cartridge and make sure all the packaging tape has been removed from the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge. Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again.
If the error continues, remove the cartridge again and clean the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge, and the contacts inside the printer, by following the instructions below:
1. Use a clean, dry, soft, lint-free cloth. Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of the cartridge.
2. Wipe the copper-colored strip with the dry cloth. Use an upward motion, from the nozzle end to the top of the cartridge. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate. Wipe the contacts only once.
3. To clean the printer contacts, carefully look for fibers or contamination on the electrical contacts inside the carriage assembly, but do not wipe the printer contacts with any object. The contacts in the printer can be damaged if too much pressure is applied during a wiping process. Try to remove any visible attached debris within the carriage assembly by gently pulling the debris off with your fingers. If the carriage contacts show noticeable damage, contact to Customer Care Center listed in the printer's User's Guide.
Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. If the error continues, the cartridge may need to be replaced.
Have a nice day and do not forget to rate please...!

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.

I just installed a new 24 lexmark ink cartridge in my lexmark x3430 and it is showing incorrect cartridge.


Hey,

make sure you have removed the protective tape from the cartridge.

if you have your old cartridge and it works, and when you then again place this one in and you get the error, then the problem is the new cartridge.

please contact your dealer for a replacement.

Thanks and good luck.

It says


Hi,
I'm sorry you are having problems with your Lexmark printer.

Please ensure you are using the correct cartridge.

X3350:
Black 32
Color 33

X5470
Black:28
Color: 29

If you are using the correct cartridge for your machine you can try to do the following:

Cleaning the print nozzles: (X5470)
1 Load plain paper.
2 Press Copy Mode.
3 Press .
4 Press or repeatedly until Tools appears.
5 Press .
6 Press or repeatedly until Maintenance appears.
7 Press .
8 Press or repeatedly until Clean Cartridges appears.
9 Press .
A page prints, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.
10 Print the document again to verify that the print quality has improved.
11 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the nozzles up to two more times.
Wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts:
1 Remove the print cartridges.
2 Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water.
3 Gently hold the cloth against the nozzles for about three seconds, and then wipe in the direction shown.
4 Using another clean section of the cloth, gently hold the cloth against the contacts for about three seconds, and
then wipe in the direction shown.
5 With another clean section of the cloth, repeat step 3 and step 4.
6 Let the nozzles and contacts dry completely.
7 Reinsert the print cartridges.
8 Print the document again.
9 If the print quality does not improve, clean the print nozzles. For more information, see “Cleaning the print
cartridge nozzles” on page 92.
10 Repeat step 9 up to two more times.
11 If print quality is still not satisfactory, replace the print cartridges.
If you are still getting the incorrect cartridge message it would be best to return the cartridge and exchange it for a new one.
Thanks
Catherine

Have a error message left cartridge incorrect


Hey!

Are you using Jet Tec ML32 Cartridge re-manufactured cartridges or genuine Lexmark Cartridge?

If it is the Jet Tec cartridge then it is known to be faulty - purchase a Lexmark cardridge and you should be fine.

If it is the Lexmark Cardridge then I would recommend taking all of the cartridges out, turning the printer off (from the power), turning it back on, inserting the cartridges again and checking if it works.

If none of the solutions work, then your cartridge is damaged and should be replaced.

Cheers,
