I cannot reset my refilled cartridge. Although it is now full the printer still recognizes it as empty. I understand i cannot correct this. Is there a way arround this by using another driver that does not check the ink level. if so where can i find such a driver for the lexmark X5320

Re: Lexmark x5320 refilled cartrisges
Unfortunately, there is no workaround or driver that can help... You will have to install the original cartridges. Most printer companies are resorting to this method these days to prevent customers from using refilled/generic cartridges..
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Actually each original cartridge has a sensor that reports back to the printer information like ink level and others.
Once the cartridge gets empty, there is no way to reset it, even though you just refill it.

Before you can have unlimited refilling you must need this devices:
Option 1: The chip resetter which you will need to manually reset the cartridge before refilling to enable the printer to recognize a new cartridge.
Heres the link where you can buy the resetter: http://cgi.ebay.ph/CHIP-RESETTER-For-EPSON-T5591-T077120-T078120-T0791-INK_W0QQitemZ290276640766QQcmdZViewItemQQptZBI_Toner?hash=item4395d607fe
Option 2: You a new set of empty cartridges with autoreset chips in it. No manual resetting needed, what you need is to refill and monitor the ink level.
Explanation: When the printer detected that the cartridge is empty, the printer sends data to the cartridges and the cartridge understand what the printer says, then the cartridge automatic chip resetter will re trigger the logic circuit built in into it to reset into full ink level.
Here is the link of the autoreset chip what Im taking about:
Hey....I solved the lexmark out of ink problem!!!HA!!! what you have to
do if you want to refill these is "pop" off the top of the cartridge.
It is not easy as it is glued down...using a small screwdriver
preferably a small flat jewelers screw driver you can peel back the
plastic that seperates the "lid" of the ink cartridge. you have to use
a little force but you can get it off. Once you do this the cartridge
will always read full!!!!!! just tape it or super glue it back on. You
never have to take it off again! although I recomend cleaning the ink
sponges inside every 3 refills. but this works great.....ha ha
lexmark.....I got ya!!!!
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.
To get your printer to recognize the new cartridge; go to start - printer and faxes -right click on printer - preferences (printing preferences) -settings -load factory settings. Print test page Ctrl+P
many printer manufacturers put something (a chip?) in the circuit of the cartridge to prevent refilled ones from being recognized by the printer....when the "factory" cartridge is empty, the only way for the printer to see a full cartridge again is by using a "new" factory one, ...i guess it's the big name brands way of making sure you buy "their" ink and not use refulls.
please note that I am not an expert, in this field just an attorney and that is why I am putting my full disclaimer right here at the top---That i am not an expert but only speaking from experience.
Earlier this morning, I just pulled the cartridges to check the Lexmark print (X6570) cartridge numbers (41&42).When I typed these numbers in on inksell.com to retrieve the price and other information for these cartridges, they did not have any refill kits or anything of that nature for these specific cartridges.
To answer your question about why the printer is not detecting that your cartridge is full is probably because the cartridge has a chip in it that essentially disables it once the original manufacturer ink is empty. tHEY [Lexmark & Dell] do not want outside competition In other words, the printer manufacturers make the bulk of the money on selling new cartridges (for a fortune) .To make matters worse, they always seem to behalf empty even though they are ‘brand-new’ ink cartridgesThe bottom line is that the faster you can go through a printer cartridge, they can sell many more of the cartridges that they are charging us a fortune for.
Needless to say, I am just going to go and get me another HP printer.My advice would be to check to see if ink-refill kits (see sites like inksell.com) are available for any future printers that u purchase.
