Question about Lexmark X2500 All-In-One Printer
My 2500 series lexmark that i bought a couple months ago just ran out of black ink. I refilled it with a nukote kit from walmart, but it wont recognize that it has been refilled. Is there any way to reset the black ink level. Keeps telling me that the black ink is empty and wont let me print anything. It wants me to go to lexmark.com and buy a new cartridge. Fat chance! I will trash this thing if i cant use the cheap refill kits. I am wondering if lexmark codes each of their ink cartridges or something so you cannot refill them.
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!!!!

It works out cheaper to buy a Lower end C 42UX / 44 / or 46 EPSON Printer you have NO problems refilling or using compatibles. if you need to reset fill levels on a EPSON no problem you can buy a JR Universal ZAP-IT to reset the cartridges when you refill them no problem try it

I also have that same problem, I refilled my cartridge and did everything like I was supposed to, still no printing, so today I went out and bought a colour cartridge for R400-00 can you believe it? Waste of time and a waste of money. I feel like I just want to break this printer into pieces. lol

Just like Crutch49, I had the cart. refilled (Lex. 28 Black) and now it's necessary just to close the pup-up and click "print".

Each cart. has internal serial # that printer reads so as not to allow you to put same cart. back in. One solution is to have 2 extra carts handy (for each color;can be old carts.) to put in the printer as if your going to use them. Go thru the WHOLE process with the first and then the second. This will clear the serial # of the original cart(the refilled one) out of the printers memory. Now try and change carts again, this time with the refilled cart. Hopefully this will work for you.

I have same problem but if you will close the low or out of ink popup and then click print it will start printing. When you run out of ink refill and keep doing the same thing. Much easier that trying tocalibrate cartridge.

There are a couple ways to trick it into accepting the cartridge. You can put a different one in, take it out and then put the filled one in. Or you can find a refill kit with instructions on what contacts to cover with tape and you have to do it 2 or 3 times to get the printer to reset. Sometimes you can shut off the computer and printer for 20 min and start it up again. Or you can get the sledge hammer and smash the stupid printer before it sucks up your life savings and vow never to buy from a company that profits from causing problems that they tell you can only be solved by using more of their overpriced solutions.
