Hi I bought a lexmark S405 and when my ink finished, i decided to refill the black catridge but the print wont print unless i buy a new catridge which is expensive than buying a new printer. I wanna...

The Lexmark S405 printer requires all cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing.

The 100/100XL cartridges are not licensed to be refilled. You can, however, refill the 100A or 100XLA cartridges available on the Lexmark website at You should be aware that a refilled cartridge will not be able to report its ink level, and you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.

While printing, it stopped and orange (error) light went on. Coolers work, it has toner and paper, no paper stuck, everything looks normal. I restart power , but it is the same. printer model Lexmark...

You may still be able to do a printer selftest page.

Press the large button on the printer.

Look at the pages for

Imaging unit

The Imaging unit may be at end of life.

This is the drum unit and collects the waste toner.
Whilst you can just reset the drum counter (see user guide for this E120, it can lead to problems if you don;t replace the drum unit. I've seen E120 drum units packed full of waste toner, to the stage where they won't take any more, and it just spews all over the mechanism. It's a very small waste collector (but its also a very small printer, and relatively low capacity toner cartridges (1k, or 2k).

Remanufactured drum units for E120 can be found on the usual internet auction sites.

The toner light is blinking instead of being on steady

Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges.
Also, please follow the appended link to Lexmark's support web site.

Error light is alway on on lexmark e120

Besides refilling the cartridge with toner there is a chip in it that you should change so the printer will know that a new cartridge is installed.

Cartridge error

In this case make sure that the catridges are inserted in the right slot...... The Colour Catridge should go in the right side and the black Catridges should go on the left side.... Make sure the catridge which u are using on this printer is the right one.......... It should not be a refilled cartridge if it is it will not work because Lexmark printers are not designed to work with Refilled catridges it may damage ur Printer......... If everything here is fine just take out both the catridges...... Take a Dry Paper Towel........ Clean the copper contacts on the printer as well as the Catridges....... Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer............ Replug it in and if still it says catridge is missing then may be a problem with the catridges.............. Hope it Works..... Good Luck........

Catridge refiling

Smartest thing to do s to call Lexmark and purchase a new toner cartridge.

Lexmark does not allow for the use of refilled cartridges in any of their products. In fact, they will void printer warranties and not respond to any print quality question.

Laser printer cartridges have what is called a "Smart Chip." One of its purposes is to protect against the use of refilled toner cartridge.

Also, as an FYI, a toner cartridge that is refilled does not mean that any of the internal parts have been upgraded to "Equivalent to new" condition.

One final thought, it is illegal to hack around proprietary code. I believe it is an Intellectual Law issue.
