Hi,
just click on them to say ok, and accept the unsupported cartridges ( if applicable ) do you get the choice.
certain printers, have an option in printer prefs, to change cartridges. check the cartridges are the same ( or compatable )
if the cartridges have a chip fitted, they need to be reset if recently filled.
hope this helps mike @ Compurepair.

    Hi,

    If its the chip. You,ll need to replace the cartridge.

    First try this. remove the cartridge. and reinstall it. usually you,ll have to push it down until you feel a gently click. if the chip is not correctly aligned in its holder. the printer will not recognise the cartridge. if the printer recognises the original but not the replacement. then it,s likely to be a faulty Cartridge or chip.

    regards mike @ Compurepair.

I have a Lexmark x7170. After installing ink cartridge printer says incorrect left cartridge.If you try to print you get unsupportive cartridge.We had just changed the cartridges and it printed fine till...


Some older print cartridges are not compatible even if your model is listed on label. I'm talking a few years difference. The printer knows this and that is what the error is telling you. Make sure you have the right number in the right slot.

Hi, I have a lexmark x7170 and keep getting an error message "unsupported cartridge". Help please!!


If you receive an error message that tells you that you have an unsupported cartridge, then you need to remove the cartridge. After installing the appropriate type of ink cartridge you should no longer receive the error message and you can then perform a print test.
Instruction on how avoid unsupprted cartridge message.
  1. Lift up the scanner unit (with the power on). The printer cartridge carrier will move to the top of the printer into the loading position.
  2. Press down on the lever above the cartridge and then raise the cartridge lid. Remove the cartridge and make sure the cartridge supports no more than four colors (cyan, yellow, magenta and black) and a speed of 22 parts per notation.
  3. Insert the compatible ink cartridge into the carrier and then lower the cartridge lid. Close the scanner unit, then make sure plain white paper is inserted into the paper loader.
  4. Press the "OK" button on the control panel and the unsupported cartridge message should be gone. Press the "Select" button and a test alignment page will print.

I have a lexmark 2580, I keep getting 'unsupported cartridge' message, and one of the lights on the printer is constantly blinking. I have brand new lexmark cartidges installed.


Problem Unsupported Cartridge; Error: "Unsupported cartridge"; Incompatible cartridge error; Incompatible cartridge in the printer; Cartridge not recognized Solution What you will see
When a cartridge is inserted, an Unsupported Cartridge error message is displayed on the printer operator panel.
Affected printers
This issue affects printers sold exclusively in the Dixon Store Group (DSG) in Europe and in Circuit City in the U.S. NOTE: The cartridges for these printers are sold exclusively in these stores or on their websites.
Explanation
The printers listed in the table below are compatible with a #2 cartridge (in single cartridge printers) or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges (in two-cartridge printers). They do not support the standard color 28A 35, and Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges. If the standard color 28A 35 or Mono 29A 34 ink cartridges are used in these printers, they will fail to print and the printer will post an Unsupported Cartridge error message.
Solution
Lexmark recommends using either a #2 cartridge for single-cartridge printers or a combination of #2 and #3 cartridges in two-cartridge printers.

I continualy get error msg to check printer cartridge, when new ones are installed same msg repeated.


I just replaced my black ink cartridge on the same printer and I'm encountering the same problem: a message that states "the black cartridge is not compatible with this printer". Well, that's not true. It is compatible. As a matter of fact, I got my printer (with new cartridge installed) to print a page once. But, now its giving me problems again and I can't get it to work. Help!

Fifteen Flashes: The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized.
Possible causes are as follows:
- The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.
- The FINE Cartridge may not be compatible with this printer.
Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the Print Head Alignment.

Unsupported cartridge message


I was having this problem with a Z730. The printer was finally working again after removing and inserting ink cartridge like 40-50 times. No pun intended. After installing cartridge try turning off printer and then back on.

Printer will not work


Hello trudyann,
I think you re-filled the cartridge and that's why you got this message
Use genuine cartridge and it will be work correctly.
But if you can copy papers by this All-In-One device .. and you can't use it as printer .. re-install the driver .. While installing if you got error message like [Unsupported cartridge] Press [Alt+F4] and continue the installation.
Thank you for using FixYa.
