    Mine took refills for a while but now is so cranky it even thinks new lexmark carts are unsupported. won't print more than a couple of characters per page & moves really jerky.

    I have the same problem as Stroker. I have refilled lexmark cartridges in the past with good results. Contacted lexmark and they were not interested in helping. I will return printer and get another brand. I have had 5 lexmark printers in the past. I still have a x5470 and you can refill the cartridge. It will still show that you need to replace the cartridge but will still allow you to print. I am interested in knowing if anyone has been able to override the software on the x5495.

    X5495 printer similar problem. won't let me use generic cartridge. In fact when I was installing it the program tells you "if you don't agree to use original cartridges, return the printer to the seller now". What is with these guys. I'll never recommend Lexmark to anyone and have just become their most vocal critic. Printer isn't all that good either, compared to my old HP, which did allow other cartridges and refills etc. Just got old that's all.



    A pox on Lexmark and all their people too. I'll just wait 'til one of you bright guys gives me a way around the problem.



    In fact, I've just remembered we have a competion board in SA. Wonder what they'll make of this. They sort out price fixing etc between companies. Gonna look them up now.

    Surely there is a file, that controls which cartridges can be used. If so, how dooes one alter or delete it or whatever? Come all you disgruntled ex Lexmark employees. Help out here.

    bloody thing... and we're suposed to be reducing IT related waste...I will have to buy a new printer now and this one will probably become waste ..... what a scandal!

    I have refilled my cartridge and the ink level still say that the ink levels are low or out and when I replaced the color cartridge the printer says that it is missing. I am not pleased with X 5495 printer and most likely not recommend this printer to anyone. My printer will only print in black .

  • cduschmitt Dec 15, 2008

    My X5495 will not print...whats with this? I can get a sample page, but thats it...I tried going to Norton settings but can't find anything that is blocking printer communication. Any ideas?

    My mom went to Walgreen's to get the cartridge refilled but we thought that that didnt so we went again and this time for sure they filled it. But like everyone else my printer still says cartridge needs to be replaced.

Lexmark advertises the cartridges supplied with this printer as cart. #28 and #29. They claim these are nonrefillable. The refillable cartridges are #28a,29a, 34 and 35, the last two being the high yield carts. Make sure you have one of these.

The cart. has a unique code number. The printer can store 2 codes. So the easiest way is to save a couple old cartridges. When you refill your existing one, put each of the 2 old ones in one at a time, if the printer asks if the cart is new... click yes, that will store those 2 id numbers. then put in the refilled one and the printer will ask if it's a new one... click yes.

Sometimes snapping the one you have in and out a couple times will work, wait a few seconds inbetween.

Hope that fixed ya...

SOURCE: my lexmark will not work with refilled ink cartridges.

Lexmark is one of the best printers, Look to see if the heads on the printer are clean. Unlike most printers Lexmark cartridges dont do the controling, the printer does. My son replaces the cartridges, he doesn't refill because of the problem simular to yours.

Lexmark does not allow refilled cartridge on any of their products.

Lexmark, HP and Canon and-many other vendors use proprietary code to protect themselves against the damage of OEM inks.

All companies will void warranties.

I have a Lexmark X5495 printer, and I refilled the black cartridge. Is there any way to override the ink levels?


Once a cartridge is refilled, it can no longer report it's true ink level. Just an FYI: 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.

Refillable cartridges for X5495


34 and 35 are refillable. The ones you get with your printer aren't.
Now, I don't understand why the colors are mixed. Is the 35 you tried a new cartridge or a refilled one?

I just refilled black ink of my new printer Lexmark x5495. Does not recognise the black cartilage and keeps on asking for alignment. When it prints alignment page it does not use the refilled black ink....


“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Refilled x5495 cartridge


hey jose022-it sounds like the ink on the header has dried up . Try pulling the cartridge back out and blotting it on a clean napkin .I f there isn't a small display of the three colors on the napkin , the cartridge end probably dried up before you refilled it.In this case you need to use the head cleaner kit and follow the instuctions that comes with it.
If there isn't aclear low of all three colors coming out the sensor will recognize it as only as the previous empty cartridge.




good luck !

HOW TO REFILL LEXMARK X5495 PRINTER


When you try refilling your ink cartridges, you are taking chances that something may go wrong. I would search the web and purchase re-manufactured ink cartridges, which would be less expensive than the new ones from Lexmark.
