What model printer is this? Is it an official Lexmark brand or a generic brand cartridge? If it is a generic brand it must not have been manufactured properly. Your old cartridge became streaky towards the end because of the fact that Lexmark ink tends to dry up very quickly. It needs to be used every now and then or it will start to clog the holes at the bottom of the cartridge. Also check to see if the box has some sort of expiry date. Some cartridges have a shelf life on only 2 years. It may have been on its way out.

Thanks for reading!
Hope this helps

Can not get the color to work in my lexmark x1240 printer to work? we tried to refill the old cartrage first but it leaked after a couple uses than we bought a new cartrage but it won't work.


Make sure that you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges and not refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges from the 3rd parties. Lexmark products work best with original supplies. If you are using genuine cartridges yet the problem persists, please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

How to replace the ink cartridge


1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer. You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red instead of the standard green.


2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.


3. Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges for refill.


4. Install the new ink cartridges after removing the protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.


5. Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.

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).

NO CARTRIDGE


Either return to staples and purchase a new cartridge, or order from lexmark. If you are talking about getting the one they didn't include, you will have to speak to lexmark customer service or bring the printer back to where you bought it.

Lexmark (Invalid cartridges)


That printer uses Lexmark 32,33,34,35 cartridges. The branded cartridges should work. Have you contacted Lexmark's technical support center? Contact information is on www.lexmark.com. They should be able to get you going again.

Cartridge problem


in most of the cases the refill will work for a few times then will not work one reason is because the ink gets dry inside the cartridge and second the contacts does not work when you uses that several times and the third the ink is not compatible with the printer no matter if that say for that kind of printer so if you wants to get that right get the new cartridge and end of the problem

Lexark X7350


If the contacts are different, then you may have bought a damaged cartridge, or just simply the wrong cartridge and this would explain why your printer cannot recognise the cartridge. Make sure you bought the same number Lexmark cartridge as the old one. Return it to the store as a damaged cartridge if it is the exact same cartridge. Lexmark would not change the design of a working cartridge to exclude customers from using a printer.
