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.

I just bought two new cartridges for my Lexmark X3550 and I keep getting an error message that the right cartridge is incorrect


I was getting that message too, for both cartridges, I did a search on the internet and found that its a manufacture problem and it has a little upgrade program you can run to fix this problem, and viola, it started working, so happy now!

Lexmark 4530 right cartridge incorrect message. unplugged unit, cleaned cartridge nothing works.

The compatible cartridges for the X4530 Lexmark printer are the # 23,23A,24,24A,31,34,35. If you have the correct cartridge number and still says cartridge incorrect, try this steps.
1. Get a damp and a dry paper towel.
2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds. ( try this for around 5 times )
3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. ( try this around 5 times )
4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
5. Remove the power adaprtor behind the printer.
6. Using the dry paper towel, clean the metal contacts on the cartridge carrier inside the printer. ( try this 5 times )
7. Place the Cartridge back to the printer, connect the power adaptor.
8. Check if there is any error message. If same problem persist, try to contact Lexmark Technical Support.

Right cartridge incorrect

This solution (RESET the BRICK - solution 1 above) worked for me!

I had a brand new out of the box Lexmark X4580 and after one or two prints I was suddenly getting a "Left Cartridge Incorrect" error showing on the Printer Control Panel and the printer would now all me to print anything.

After about an hour of trying this and that (cartridges in, out and shalen all about!) ; no avail, I tried this and hey presto, it worked.

When I removed the "Brick" power supply I left it until the Green LED had faded right out though, I dont know if that was significant or not. Fingers crossed all is sorted now!
