If its working great .......with refilled cartridge because lexmark cartridges have in build sensor which can be used only once but can try by reset :: i am not sure it will work :::

If your cartridges are not being detected when they are snapped in, do the following:
Open the cover of the printer and unsnap both cartridges.
Snap them back in after a few seconds. Close the cover.
Repeat these steps (1-2) three or more times in succession. You will be prompted to go through the menu on the printer display to finish the process. Follow the instructions displayed.
If your printer is posting a LOW INK LEVEL or CHANGE CARTRIDGE error, snap the cartridges in and out as directed above (steps 1-3). When you close the front cover, you should see the message Cartridge Change - NEW on the display.
Press Select to indicate that you have just installed a new cartridge.

Epson workforce 520 won't recognise ink cartidges


When replacing ink on the Epson Workforce 520, Ensure the cartridges have the correct/same number of gold contacts. Ive seen them with 7 and 9 gold square contacts and they were otherwise identical, and the ones with 9 contacts threw an "cartridge not recognized" error on the printer's dispay.

Printer will not accept new cartridges. Printer is new and wants original cartridges to initialize ink system. Original cartridges are not availible. Tryed reset but did not work.


HP printers will not accept refilled cartridges. Are you trying to replace your empty cartridges with refilled cartridges? There is a computer chip in the ink cartridge that tells the printer when it is out of ink. If you try and refill it yourself, the printer will not recognize that it has been refilled without replacing the computer chip in it.

I think your printer is telling you that it needs HP brand cartridges that are original and not refilled cartridges. There is no way to "reset" an hp printer to get it to use an off brand or refilled cartridge that has not had the chip changed.

You can pick up a good refilled cartridge at a professional company who knows about changing the chip for less then a third of the regular price of an HP cartridge in a department store. However, HP does not want you to use refilled cartridges and should something go wrong with your computer and they find out that you were using them they will void your warranty on your printer.

If you are not trying to replace HP brand cartridges with refilled or off brand versions, I suggest your return them to where you bought them and exchange them. They may be defective cartridges.

Hope this helps?

Epson c88 shows ink out in all four cartridges but they are full


Are they "original" Epson ink-cartridges, or have they been refilled? Often, the refilled cartridges will show as "empty", but they work, until they _do_ get empty.

Purchased 36xlcartridge


If this is a refilled cartridge, most likely the electronics have been turned off on the cartridge. I own a cartridge refilling store and I don't refill the Lexmark 36 or 37 because the printers turn off the electronics on these cartridges when they get empty so they can't be refilled. If this is an original Lexmark cartridge, I think that Lexmark is making their printers so extremely sensitive to refills that they even kick out some original manufacturer cartridges. I have had a couple customers that this has happened to and it seems to happen more frequently with prebate cartridges. I recommend exchanging your cartridge for a new one (Lexmark brand).

After replacing ink cartridge printer dose not reconize one of six


Using refilled in cartridges and incompatible inks result in the following problems.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might leak and cause product damage. One method for refilling ink cartridges is to drill a hole through the cartridge, refill the ink, and then plug it. In some cases this plug does not hold, and the ink runs into the product and damages the printed circuit boards.
  • Refilled ink cartridges frequently exhibit spotty printing or fail to print. This problem might be a direct result of the nozzles being plugged with dried ink. Because the vents of the refilled cartridges have been opened, air is able to enter the cartridge and dry the ink.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might exhibit lower print quality, for the following reasons.
    • Printing algorithms used to create the various colors are based on particular printer inks. Using incompatible inks might result in color matching problems.
    • Refilled cartridges might have damaged nozzle orifices, result in various problems with print quality.
    • company products to which the printer belongs to can use a time delay between pages to accommodate the properties of the specific media type and ink being used. This prevents smearing problems from one page to the next. Using incompatible ink will alter the effects of this time delay and might result in poor print quality.
  • printer might not recognize refilled ink cartridges. The refilling process may involve altering the ink cartridge enough that the product is unable to recognize it. The condition of the print cartridge electrical contacts deteriorates with use. This also results in the product being unable to recognize the refilled cartridge.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might get stuck in the product. Because the cartridges from other manufacturers have been altered, cartridges might become stuck in the product. This problem might require that the product be disassembled to remove the cartridge.
  • printer at times cannot predict the long-term effects on product reliability from using different ink formulations.

Printer rejecting new refill ink cartridges


Hello spreadboss20 and n0uwe. HP's printers usually have compatibility issues with non-genuine as well as original refills. There may be several issues arising as a result of using refilled cartridges. So, better you try out for a new set of genuine cartridges.

Refilled Cartridges


I've refilled cartridges twice so far. The first time, the black was completely empty and the color was nearly empty. The printer accepted the color refill and not the black. The second time, I refilled both cartridges before they completely ran dry and both were accepted by the printer. The gauges don't register the ink, but it prints just fine. I just monitor the levels through the print quality. A friend with the same printer has told me that she only get 2 - 3 refills before the cartridge has to be reset, and that is a tricky process, but can be done.

You say you have refilled the ink carts. Have you reset the chip on the cartridges? If not the chip will still report the printer that the carts are empty.
