I forgot where to install the ink packs in my machine. Can you let me know thank you.

when you lift the scaner bed you will see the ink packs. When you install new ink packs make sure you remove the plastic strips, covering the ink jets of the new cartridge.

Left ink cartridge incorrect

There are a small number of #23/#24 cartridges that are not properly recognized by the printer. Lexmark has a firmware upgrade to correct this issue. The upgrade for the X3430 is available from Lexmark at:

To install the firmware upgrade,
  1. Make sure the printer is ON and connected with a USB cable.
  2. Download and run the appropriate firmware upgrade for your computer.
  3. Be sure not to disconnect or power off the printer until the upgrade is complete

When the update finishes the printer will restart and will accept the cartridges. Please contact Lexmark support if this does not fix the problem.

This works for the X3550 and X4550 models. A similar patch is available for the X3430 and Z1420 models. See

Lexmark x4550 install new cartridge but printer read incorrect

Are you using a Lexmark factory new cartridge or a re-filled / third party cartridge. If the answer is that you are using re-filled or a third party cartridge that is your failure. Lexmark does not support the use of these products in there products. In fact, use of these type of products is considered to be -product tampering and will cause Lexmark to void the printer's warranty. Please do not shoot the messenger for the contents of the message. Truth is Truth!
