Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies

I have a Lexmark 5490 printer; haven't used it in a while. Was in the store today and decided to pick up ink cartridges for it. Got 5470; don't know if I can use these. They fit properly but I don't have my manual and am getting a message saying it is incorrectly installed. Any advice.

Can I print with a black cartridge in the printer but not a color?


Thanks for your question.

The answer unfortunately is no and here is why, You will put Lexmark out of business, I don't mean that lightly.
People do not buy color printers to print black pages simply put they make money over your refills. Its unfortunate if there is no ink in the color you miss well forget it and purchase a new color ink or go with a Laser printer. To be honest a nice laser printer you can pick up for under $100 bucks and you can print all the black you want without being milked for a color ink.
Sorry if this was not the answer your looking for but this Lexmark mixes ink to save on the black and vice versa.

X 5470 Error 1203


The ink cartridge in your printer has a short.
1. Unplug your printer. 2. Wait 30 seconds to allow the printer to reset. 3. Plug your printer back in. 4. Remove the ink cartridges, and wipe off the copper connectors you'll see on the bottom of it with a cloth. 5. Reinstall the ink cartridges.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello, I now have a Lexmark x 5470 printer. My other model: x5495. Do both use same cart. # 28 /29? Thanks Mike


Your Lexmark X5470 printer uses 32/33 standard yield cartridges and 34/35 high yield cartridges only. Hope this helps. Thanks.

I need to reset my ink levels on my lexmark s305 after refilling cartridges


I managed to successfully refill the black cartridge for the S305; I did it when the printer warned of 'very low black ink' (although it didn't print very well - i.e. grey - until the following day). It kept displaying 'low ink' but printed fine for a few months.
I think if you can catch it before the printer decides it needs an 'official' refill or replacement then it works (although when exactly this is is a mystery, as it always displays 'low' for black ink).
Yesterday, the printer decided it wouldn't print until the cartridge was changed.
Refilled; waited for half a day;replaced several times; turned the printer on and off 5 times with no cartridge in (to see if it would wipe the printer's memory of the cartridge); and spent about 4 hours online trying to find a solution.
If it starts working tomorrow, I'll let you know. I don't want to mess about with software that may reset the ink levels. (If anyone finds some that works, please post!)
It looks like Lexmark have ensured they can pile in the cash with their original cartridges.
I've heard about generic cartridges that are chipped to avoid the above problem - I'll visit my local refill store soon.
There must be a way round this!
Cheers, Fronter

Refill lexmark 37xl ink


I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we do not refill the Lexmark 36 and 37. The reason is that your printer turns off the electronics on the cartridge when the ink gets low, so you can't reuse the cartridge. Your printer will only function with an electronically functioning cartridge. We NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills a lot of the time, and across manufacturer their ink costs the most and is designed to clog the cartridge if you don't use it fast enough. We recommend HP printers that take integrated print head cartridges and Canon printers that take tank style cartridges.

How do i change the ink?


You can find the answer on Lexmark's website. www.lexmark.com

Also, the instructions are on the Lexmark Ink Cartridges.

Please do not use third party ink or refilled cartridges. These cause more problems then they are worth.

Is it possible to refill ink cartridge on Lexmark x6690 printer?


Take out all cartridges, switch printer off and then on again and let printer see that there are no cartridges. Do this 5 times, it resets the cartridges. Then install refilled cartridges

No color 5470


HELLO FIXYA..

THE FIX WAS TO UN-IN-STALL THE (5470) SOFTWARE AND RE-IN- STALL. I COULD MAKE COPIES FROM THE COPIER BUT NOT FROM COMPUTER(BLACK OR COLOR).THE COLOR PROBLEM APPEARS TO BE THE INK CARTRIDGES

I DO NOT KNOW IF THE PROBLEM WAS WITH THE SOFTWARE (CD) THAT WAS SENT WITH PRINTER OR IF I CAUSED THE TROUBLE MYSELF.

I WILL OBTAIN NEW INK CARTRIDGES TOMORROW AND CHECK THAT PORTION OF TROUBLE
IF IT DOES NOT CLEAR THE COLOR PROBLEM UP,I WILL UPDATE YOU..

THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN,

BGC

PS I RECEIVED SOME GOOD HELP FROM LEXMARK SUPPORT CENTER ALTHOUGH I HAD TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING HIM. HE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE.

Lexmark 5470 will not recognize a new colour cartridge


Have trawled all over the web...untill I found a sloution that worked for me!
1 Take out what looks like the battery pack ( your wire, plugs into this )
2 Ensure the green light goes out ( two pieces of wire crossing over at the contact point( like trying to fuse the battery ) will make the light go out immediately )
3 Take out the ink cartridge, Clean the ink cartridge with alcohol ( I used GIN! )..clean the internal contacts for the cartridge as well.
4 When dry ( let dry naturally )...put back the ink cartridge
5 Put back the "battery pack" and mains connection into this pack.
6 turn back on....system thinks you are low / out of ink but allows you to print..hope this works for you

My Lexmark 5470 won't print anything but the alignment page. Then it says to remove the tape from the cartridge. There is no tape on the cartridge. I have cleaned it and it still won't print. Help I need...


I have the same problem as posted by tahoeowner. The printer indicates that I have an alignment issue and tells me to remove any tape from the cartridge. There is no tape on either cartridge, nor will the printer work with any other cartridges. I'm getting tired of wasting paper and ink with all the printer's "retry" messages.
