Make sure you are inserting the correct cartridge versions for your Lexmark X5470 printer. Color cartridges compatible for your model are #33 and #35.
Try to re-insert the right cartridge into the printer. If that doesn't help, remove the right cartridge from your printer again. Close the printer cover. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power
supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the
printer, and put it back after 30 seconds. When the printer turns on, re-insert your right cartridge. Close the printer cover and check for any errors. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed. If the problem continues, try to do the Clean Cartridge function from the printer operator panel. On Copy mode, press the Menu button > select Tools > select Maintenance > select Clean Cartridges. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed. If the error still appears on the display screen, you probably have a faulty cartridge. Please replace it with a new genuine Lexmark cartridge.
First you can make sure the outlet you plug your printer into has electricity by unplugging the printer and plugging in a lamp or something to show the electricity is working. Unplug the other end of the power to the printer if it will unplug - so the printer power cable is unplugged at both ends.
If the electricity is okay then plug both ends of the printer power cable back in and see if the printer comes on. If it does not, lift the lid where you replaced the ink cartridge and see if you can remove and reinstall the ink cartridge. Make sure the latch holding the cartridge is firmly in place. Finally, make sure the lid is down and solidly in place.

Most problem experienced with hp photosmart c6180 is the yellow catridge error.

Press Cancel To Continue".....press "CANCEL" as many times to display "Welcome To Photosmart Express" or "Ink System Failure".....the last part is to turn off the printer and unplug at the back...wait for 30 sec, then plug and turn on the printer...if asked, press "OK" to continue and allow the "One Time Ink Initialization" to procede..After this try to print...
No, this is not necessary. Try unplugging your printer for 1 full minute and then plug it back in. This should solve your problem. If not, remove the cartridge again and insert it "while" the machine is on. Good luck, Dana
It would appear that the black ink cartridge is either out of ink or running out soon.Change the cartridge.If your need to print now and don't have a new cartridge try this open the unit pull out the black cartridge shake it and the reinstall it you may get a little more out of it.If this is a new printer the cartridges install are always limited in use,so you'll buy more.If you must print know try changing your font color to dark blue avoiding black.Good luck.
What is your printer manufacturer and model number. Check to make sure that the new cartridges are the ones recommended for the printer. The wrong cartridges will fit your carriage, but are not correctly sensed by the printer hardware.
Something is wrong with your Blach carrier or connections. Use a bit of alcohol and clean the array of gold contacts where the Ink cartridge plugs in. Most of the pins are shutter and piezo control (get the ink on paper) but a few do other stuff like check ink level, # of hours runtime, etc. This is very common problem with inkjet printers. Hope this helps. Also... rub the contacts on the printhead with a pencil eraser to make them shiny and bright.
TRY UNPLUGING PRINTER FROM POWER THEN RESTART
OR IF AVAILABLE TRY DIFFERENT BLACK CARTRIDGE
OR WITH CLEAN DRY CLOTH WIPE CONTACTS INSIDE CARTRIDGE HOLDER
CHECK LOCKING CLIP IS LOCKING DOWN PROPERLY RISKY BUT IF PROBLEM IS THAT CARTRIDGE IS NOT SITTING CORRECTLY IN HOLDER TRY THIN BIT OF CARD ON TOP OF CARTRIDGE THEN CLIP DOWN DONT BREAK IT BE VERY VERY GENTLE.
This happens if you refilled the cartridges, and forgot to take out the air..
Follow this steps.. 1. Switch on the printer, open cartridge bay, remove cartridge, dont close the cartridge holder flaps, directly unplug the power supply from the printer end.
2. take a soft cotton, lint free cloth, slightly swab it with pure water, wring the cloth so any excess water is removed, and clean the contact pins inside the printer cartridge holder..
3. clean the cartridge head by keeping it in hot water (about 50C) and then wiping it clean, keep it upright for a few min, and when both printer and cartridge is completly dry put it back in, voila it should not display the message now...
