Question about Lexmark Color Z82 InkJet

1 Answer

My Lexmark Z82 printer won't recognize a new black print cartridge when put in place of one that is out of ink. It recognizes and prints, faintly, with the old cartridge when put back in, but keeps telling me the cartridge is not in when the new is put back in place. What to do?

Just 2 possible causes:
1 - you bought the wrong cartridge: either it's the wrong model or it's not a genuine one - fake ones have very bad chips that fail easily; buy the correct cartridge.
2 - the cartridge isn't properly installed or the contacts on its back aren't connected properly to the carriage; take it out, clean the contacts and the pins from the carriage and make sure they are in good condition.

Lexmark Pro 705 won't let me print after refilled


If you refill the regular lexmark 100 ink cartridges, you will not be able to use it because there is a rfid chip that track the ink usage. you will need to buy the 100a type which will let you print if the ink level is empty. since you have refill the 100 ink cartridge, you can swap the 100a chip to your 100 cartridge.

Lexmark printer always want a new cartridge


What you need is to reset the ink level:
1) Goto the Lexmark Solution Center application.
2) Press button Maintenance>Install a new print cartridge, follow the instruction on screen. U may then have your new full ink level. Note: u only can reset to full level, cannot customize the level by your own.
Hope this help.

Printer says ink cartridge not recognized.


Take the black ink cartridge back to the person who refilled it. The Microchip that's on the cartridge was not reset properly that's why the printer is returning that error.

You can try some steps before you take it to them to verify it.
1: reseat (take out and put back in) the cartridges into place
2: buy another black cartridge just to check if it will be recognized by the printer, if it does recognize it we know the cartridge is defective. If a new cartridge is also not recognize, start to check your warranty option with the manufacturer...

Hi tfonts,

This is normal behavior for proprietary print devices if you have not provided them with a new print cartridge and have instead filled them yourself.
