Question about Lexmark MFP-X3470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
It keeps saying cartridge is missing when i put a new one in
Had the same problem with my 3430 and this is my solution. Probably SO not recommended by Lexmark.
I took a dry Q-tip and cleaned off the inside contacts, the copper bits in the cradle that make contact with the cartridge. Do it carefully but firmly. You don't want to break anything.
First it changed to a "incorrect Cartridge" and I thought, Now we're getting somewhere. So I scrubbed again. And I'm also printing again. I had dirty contacts.
Hope this helps

Same thing here, i bought recycled and the company who recycled claims they tested it ok but my computer and printer does not recognize it. And if I continue with the low ink message I get a prompt that says ...can anyone help?
lxcypswx.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

I have the same problem. I did the test it recommended for putting it on a damp cloth and then pulling it across, there IS ink in it. Brand new cartridge made in Mexico. What do I DO?
