Hyway442,

Here's some information that might help explain why your printer is saying 'empty'.

There's an electronic serial number on the cartridge that the printer reads. Not sure about Lexmark but I do know that HP cartridges need to have that serial number changed when refilling a cartridge.

A good ink refilling station will change your HP cartridge serial number if it's changeable.

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..

I have a Lexmark X9575 all-in-one printer. When I refill the ink cartridge the printer still says it is empty. How can I reset the printer to think the cartridge is full again?


Lexmark Printers will not recognize Refilled Cartridges, The Fuse inside the cartridge blows and makes the cartridges Unusable is there is an attempt made to refill one!

Refilled ink cartridge but it says cartridge is empty how do i reset my printer?


No
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.

How do i go about refilling epson T5591/2/3/4/5/6


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:

My Lexmark X2600 ran out of the black ink cartridge. I refilled the black ink cartridge but it refuses to recognize it and will not let me use it. Gives me an option to use the color one only or cancel. ...


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!!!!

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.

Lexmark X2600 refill problem


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.

Refill cartridge for lexmark X6570


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 be half empty even though they are ‘brand-new’ ink cartridges The 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.
