Refilled cartridges are a pain. The small circuit board on the cartridge is deformed when you place the new cartridge into the printer. After you refill the cartridge, the same circuit board is then deformed again when it is fitted. If any of those deformations do not line up with the original ones, you get issues like this one or you get dropouts in the printed characters. This is because the circuit is no longer touching the pads on the print carriage. You cannot remove these deformations without damaging the cartridge. My advice is purchase a printer which does not have the print head attached to the cartridge, like a canon ip1000. Look for something that has ink tanks rather then a print cartridge, or only use new cartridges in your lexmark.

I have had no problem with refilled cartridges up to now for my lexmark printer. After having the computer cleaned and updated etc. a new message appears on the screen when I want to print. It says the...


Lexmark does not recommend the use of refilled/remanufactured cartridges. They tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance since refillers don't have access to Lexmark ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.
Note that when a cartridge is refilled it can no longer register its ink level.

I refilled Lexmark ink cartridges 36 black and 37 colored and my lexmark printer 4650 series keeps saying empty cartridges and won't let me print. Can you Help?


36 and 37 can be refilled, but they won't work. They are "return program cartridges" as Lexmark calls them. That actually means that they CAN NOT be refilled. You need to buy 36A or 36XLA and 37A or 37XLA. Those are refillable.
Here is link to Lexmark's site, with a compatibility list.

Hi there

Did you say you refilled them your self if so then buy new inks because Lexmark not will take refilled cartridges, sorry but this is down to Lexmark how they made them so it will not take refilled and cant be reset.

Refilling cartridges


Joe,

You should have received control program software with your printer. If installed, the icon should be on your desktop or it may be in your programs list. You can also get the software from the Lexmark web site.

Anyway, you probably need to reset the cartridge using the control program. It's not difficult. Just follow the prompts.

Refilled cartridge , printer says right cartridge incorrect


Lexmark builds intelligence into their cartridges and printers to prevent the use of refilled cartridges.

Lexmark has never approved the use of anyone else's ink for their printers primarily because there is no way to prove the quality of the ink.

Please purchase a Lexmark cartridge.

Is it possible to refill ink cartridge on Lexmark x6690 printer?


Take out all cartridges, switch printer off and then on again and let printer see that there are no cartridges. Do this 5 times, it resets the cartridges. Then install refilled cartridges

I have a Lexmark Z11 that sat unopened in the box for several years until it was given to me as an emergency printer. The black ink cartridge had been pilfered by the original owner ( he got several of the se printers on clearance for $15 each). I bought a remanufactures high capacity cartridge. It workef fine for the three days of printing I did last week (about 25-30 pages of resumes and reference letters). When I went to use it a week later, it goes through the motions of printing but no ink is put on the page. I ran the clean cartridge several times but still no ink. I tried the new still-in-the-box color cartridge and did get color on the page in the alignment trial, but it was faded and full of white lines. I figured the cartridge was just old. It could be the ink leaked out of the remanufactured cartridge, but when I gently blew on the air hole I got a small splat of ink. (I used to be a sales rep for Canon printers a dozen years ago and we were told to do that to see if the cartridge still had ink.) I deleted and reinstalled the printer, unplugged and replugged cable and power cord twice. The printer receives the command and goes through the motion of printing, but as I said, no ink is put on the page. I have come to the conclusion the perhaps the remanufactured cartridge is at fault and I should take it back for an exchange, Can I get your take on it - is it the cartridge or the printer? Thanks! -Kathleen Brockway
