Question about Lexmark X4650 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My x4650 is not recognising when I refill the black 36XLA cartridge. Just keeps telling me it is empty. There is not a problem with the cartridge itself just the failure to recognise it has been refilled. The option to print just using the black cartridge is greyed out in the print setup menus meaning until it recognises that the black cartridge is full, it will only print from the colour cartidge.

turn on/off, unplug, plug inMy x4650 is not recognising when I refill the - 2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats. or take cartridge out and put back in to insure in securely.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.

Lexmark Pro 705 won't let me print after refilled


If you refill the regular lexmark 100 ink cartridges, you will not be able to use it because there is a rfid chip that track the ink usage. you will need to buy the 100a type which will let you print if the ink level is empty. since you have refill the 100 ink cartridge, you can swap the 100a chip to your 100 cartridge.

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.

I have a lexmark X3650 printer. I have refilled my black in cartridge. (Drilled the hole and refilled). The printer does not detect the refill and keeps telling me the cartridge is empty. Help please!!!


Unfortunately, the cartridge has an indicator that tells the printer what its status is. This doesn't get reset when you refill the cartridge. With some printers, you can use a few other new cartridges and then try the refilled one again. (These printers store the cartridges last used and status; but can't store a long list of "this cartridge was empty".)

I wish I could be of more help.

I have a Lexmark X4650 I refilled the cartridge and now I cannot get the printer to recognize the cartridge it prints black only and tells me Color is low . any suggestions on how to bypass this prob get...


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't refill the Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges. Your printer deactivates the electronics on this cartridge when the ink levels get low. Your printer needs a black and a color cartridge with functioning electronics to print. I NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills easily, and have the most expensive ink across manufacturers and it is designed to clog your cartridge unless you use it quickly. If you keep this machine you are stuck buying Lexmark brand ink (the return program cartridges are a little cheaper though).

Trying to reload color cartridge.


Many brand name printer cartridges have a code that tells the printer they are a new cartridge. Once the cartridge is empty it will never again tell the printer that is it new.

You can refill the cartridge but it will continue to tell the printer that it is empty.

You say you "had my ... cartridges refilled today" so I suggest you go back to the folks who refilled them and ask them for suggestions.

Otherwise, purchase off-brand cartridges that won't tell the printer they're empty and keep refilling them as needed.

Another approach: purchase a new printer that won't give you this problem. I refill my Lexmark cartridges without any problems.

Refilling cartridges


For that printer: there are 4 color and 4 black cartridges BESIDES the #31 photo cartridge. Lexmark has made it so you MUST either, throw away or send to them, the 36 and 37, the 36XL and 37XL. The printer will never again recognize them after they are removed from the printer...
However, the 36XLA and 37XLA AND the 36A and 37A as well as the 31 Photo may be removed from the printer, refilled, and reinstalled.

I have seen some forums that say you can but a piece of BLACK tape, across the bottom row of contacts on the non-refillable cartridges....I believe there are 4 to 7 contacts across the bottom row only.....and the printer will still give you a message that it needs ink.....but it WILL print. I have not tested this theory yet though. I have just gotten the first message saying my black ink is very low.

Hope this helps and I think Lexmark Corporation Sucks for tricking people like this. (This printer comes with the NON refillable cartridges as default, but I did NOT see in the documentation that it couldn't be refilled. Nasty people........:(

Good Luck~~! mstipps@yahoo.com

Reset Lexmark 36 Black cartridge?


I managed to get it working, just damage the connection point (where the chip is). I used a knife to break part of the connection and now I can fill the cartridges myself for a fraction of the price :)
