Question about Lexmark X2600 InkJet Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
Cartridges #14 and#15 can be refilled, but they won't work afterward, because they have a "smart chip" that blows the electric contacts on the cartridges (that is why Lexmark labels them as "return program cartridges").
You should buy #14A and #15A, those are refillable.
Hope that helps!

There is a procedure you can use on Lexmark printers that works just fine on my Lexmark X-2650 printer, but should work on any Lexmark printer cartridges that use the RF IC chip that counts how many pages a particular cartridge has printed. Lexmark is in defiance of the High Court ruling on Lexmark predatory toner cartridge attempt to defeat owners of there printers to refill there own cartridges. (1) Power down your computer and then your printer. (2) after the 2 devices are fully shut down, unplug the USB connection on the printer. (3) power on the printer only long enough for it to do it's " Scan and Seek " cartridge procedure, about 8-12 seconds. (4) repeat step # 3 powering up/down the printer 5 times. This clears the printer internal memory of the last 5 cartridges used and then power on your printer with the lid up this time to allow the printer to position itself for cartridge replacement. Put in your newly filled cartridges and and let the printer do it;s " Seek and Scan " procedure. After the printer is done with this procedure power down your printer then turn on your computer. Open up your computers icon to get your printer ready to print. You'll get a message from the software to turn on your printer, turn it on. Put something on the glass to scan and hit the " Copy Now " button Icon on the screen. You'll then get a prompt that newly discovered cartridges need the printer alignment paper. Print out the alignment paper and put on the glass and press the scan button as indicated by the on screen prompt. You should receive a message stating " Printer alignment success" and you can print now. Noe: However it will still print but there might be a question mark above any given toner cartridge display when the printer starts to print. This should not be a problem for you know the cartridge is full and refill it again when the particular color shows up in the printing process, typically 100-125 prints per cartridge. Eventually the print head will wear out beyond the point of being able to print out quality documents. Just buy a generic cartridge that is compatible with your printer, there are a multitude of sellers on the market who sells them, just buy from a seller who offers a warranty with their product. Use that cartridge and when you see a prompt on the screen that you toner cartridge is getting low, this is the time to refill you units with the toner refill kit you bought. And make sure you are following to the letter the refill instructions, if you kit is lacking on good instructions go to YouTube , there are plenty of step by step refill videos to watch on that subject and is beyond the scope of this answer .
