The only cartridge that fits in your printer is the 18C0788 #1 cartridge if you have put another cartridge into your printer that is not the #1 cartridge I recommend you remove it and replace it with the correct cartridge.

Try this... Unplug the printer from power and restore power... also, reboot the computer. if that doesn't work, try reinstalling the cartridge or reinstalling the software. If there is an option to ignore these messages, it will be in the options srction of your printer manager program.

How do i change the cartridge on the lexmark 3480. I have lost the manual.

When you open the section at the "waistline" of the machine the inks will center themselves automatically giving you clearance to change them.

Lexmark x3480 cartridge missing fault

First make sure that the refill cartridge is the correct one.

Example: X3480 printers: #2 cartridge

If so than take the cartridge out and clean all the contact points with a dry cloth. These points can sometimes get dirty, especially by refilled cartridges. reinsert the cartridge and than unplug the printer and plug it back in after 10 seconds.

I can type out how to troubleshoot this, but it would be easier for you to open the link below. This will give you step by step instructions on how to do this.

Let me know if this does not work for you. Good Luck!

Lexmark X3480 reset codes

I believe this may help. The Lexmark printer/scanners are touchy and need to be "restarted" sometimes since their internal "brain" gets scrambled. Sounds like this is what has happened to you.

Turn the printer off - if it won't - just unplug the darn thing! Then, reboot your computer - and just before you re-boot, plug the printer in.

Hopefully this will reset it.

Lexmark printer/scanner load software and other things during the boot-up process that you are not even aware of. I know this is not desirable, but that is what they do and they sometimes require a complete shut-down and re-boot to reset.

Hope that helps. If it doesn't - you may have a corrupt driver. Go to the Lexmark site and re-download the driver and re-start from scratch. Hopefully it will work out. Best of luck

Cartridge incorrect message displayed. It was a bought refil specifically for this printer - x3480

Refills are unpredictable. I would send it back and get another as chances are it is not going to work

Inccorect cartrigde

Try using a pencil eraser to clean the gold contacts on the back of the cartridge. If they get dirty or cruddy, the printer won't be able to 'read' the cartridge correctly.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Thanks, and good luck!
