Low ink level after ink refill prohitting print function

I got my lexmark color cartridge refilled at Walgreen, they tested and cleaned it, I watched so I am sure of it. When we took it in, the printer warned of low ink level and stopped printing. Now it still won't print, says low ink level but it is not, even removed several times, cleaned with damp cloth. Will not even allow cleaning print head mode or print commands, always bringing up the low ink level box.

    I tried this procedure 3 times, then took the cartridge out each time twice and this process, cleaned the whole cartidge all around with sightly damp cotton cloth,allowed time to dry but the program won't allow print, clean heads or anything else without the low level ink fault. Other people have gone thru the same dead end here with lexmark and HP mostly, the issue as I see it is to rest the physical circuit on on the cartridge, I'm tempted to remove it but not sure where it enters the cartridge to sense the level and it might eternally send the cartridge into absolute uselessness as oppose to the current relative uselessness .

How to override lexmark s415 low ink


There's no way to override the low ink warning. If one of the cartridges is out of ink, you won't be able to continue printing.

Refilled cartridges will not report or reset the ink levels.

Original Printer manufacturers do not recommend refilling in cartridges.
Different inks used in different cartridges differ in density, color, acidity etc. Usually refilling ink is made as universal ink. i.e. They produce the ink for 'any printer'.
The differences in the original and refiling inks might lead to the printer not recognizing the ink level.
Either buy a new cartridge or just ignore the messages.

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).

My Lexmark z22 printer will not print corretly


“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.

Dell series 9 refill and low ink warnings


The series 9 cartridges can be refilled. As long as the electronics are still functioning on your cartridge you should be able to print no problem. There is no way to reset the ink levels on these cartridges so you will just need to ignore the ink level warnings. I would recommend Cartridge World for ink refills. Many other stores and on-line sellers don't do the cleaning, vacuum filling, electrical testing, and print testing that Cartridge World stores do to make sure your cartridge works.

Refill instructions for lexmark 23 & 24


Lexmark has an interesting development with their inkjet cartridges which they began some years ago with toner cartridges. A court decision required Lexmark to allow their cartridges to be refilled. However, Lexmark would naturally prefer that you only buy from Lexmark. Thus, Lexmark has developed the following system:
  • Lexmark offers for sale two different versions of the same cartridge:
  • The regular version (#23, #24, #28, #29, #41, #42) is not refillable. It is the "Return Program" or "Prebate" cartridge. Supposedly, when you buy this cartridge you agree to return the empty cartridge to Lexmark. In return, Lexmark gives you roughly $5 off the retail list price of the cartridge.
  • The "A" version (#23A, #24A, #28A, #29A, #41A, #42A) can easily be refilled. However, the price of the cartridge is roughly $5 higher than the regular version, so most people unknowingly buy the regular version.
