Hi - have bought above printer second-hand and it containe
a cartridge #1, which I believe is the correct one.
I also bought a new cartridge #1 when I kept getting the
box coming up saying "Unsupported cartridge".
Can this be solved or should I "BIN" the printer.
I have tried taking the cartridge out and then turning on the
printer etc but no good.
Any help apprec. Bill

Re: Lexmark X2350 cartridge #1
Since you have bought the printer second hand, you will probably not have the installation disc which contains the drivers ( software to run it ) ..... and this is more likely to be your problem rather than only the cartridge/s ...don't worry drivers are available as free downloads, here is one such link for you http://www.driverstock.com/Lexmark-X2350-driver-download/12-26-5476/index.html

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 and these type of cartridges often result to poor print quality and/or may cause damage to the printer itself. Reliability of these type of cartridges is very poor. It is highly recommended to use genuine Lexmark cartridges for the most optimal output experience. Lexmark printers work best with genuine supplies.
If you have just bought it then it will tell you the cartridge type either on the side of the box or in the instructions. Be aware though that the cartridges for Lexmarks tend to be very expensive - that is why the printer is so cheap usually!
Looking on ebay, copy cartriidges seem to be about $10 each. You will need 1 black and 1 colour. Please note that the cartridges supplied with the printer will not last as long as regular cartridges!
Perhaps cartridge is defective or cartridge detector is dirty, clean cartridge contacts in printer with a Cotton tip and some good cleaning solution (if alcohol, avoid camphor scented alcohol; use ETHYL ALCOHOL, Etanol or Metilcarbinol)
firstly never buy a second hand anything for printers because there usually are problems to follow. What it says is true. you cartridge is probably refilled and thats almost always a bad Idea with inkjet printers you have to buy new cartridges everytime the last 1 runs out it will cost you a little more but it will save you the headaches
Hi,Ive had this problem a few times with the 2300 series theres no easy answer to it if your getting an unsupported cartridge message or cartridge not recognised you either have an empty or a faulty cartridge,or a damaged contact on the printers ribbon where the cartridge mates to the printer.Bill.
1st-Turn your printer on
2nd-Cup the front of the printer with your hand, placing your thumb by the word 'Lexmark' and your fingers under the front of the ledge that protrudes directly above where the paper comes out when you print (the scanner portion of the printer)
3rd-Lift up firmly until gray stand clicks into place (you'll see it on the right-hand side)
4th-You will see that the printer cartridge assembly has shifted to the center of the machine. Press down on the blue tab that is nearest you, the ink cartridge assembly should open up, allowing you to access the cartridge
5th-Remove the old printer cartridge and replace with a new one
6th-Close the gray cartridge assembly cover
7th-Grip and slightly raise the scanner portion (the upper part that you initially raised) of the printer and simultaneously press on the lower portion of the gray stand until it begins to ease into the printer assembly
8th-Gently lower the scanner portion until it comes to rest on base of the printer. You're ready to go.
to be honest, yes it can probably be fixed with correct driver downloads and new cartridge/s etc...however lexmark cartridges do tend to be quite expensive and brand new printers complete with colour and black cartridges are very in-expensive now...you can get them for under £50.....may be best to go for new...and it's guaranteed !
