You may have a non refillable cartridge.
Lexmark has an interesting development with their inkjet cartridges which they began some years ago with toner cartridges. A court decision required Lexmark to allow their cartridges to be refilled. However, Lexmark would naturally prefer that you only buy from Lexmark. Thus, Lexmark has developed the following system:

  • Lexmark offers for sale two different versions of the same cartridge:
  • The regular version (#23, #24, #28, #29, #41, #42) is not refillable. It is the "Return Program" or "Prebate" cartridge. Supposedly, when you buy this cartridge you agree to return the empty cartridge to Lexmark. In return, Lexmark gives you roughly $5 off the retail list price of the cartridge.
  • The "A" version (#23A, #24A, #28A, #29A, #41A, #42A) can easily be refilled. However, the price of the cartridge is roughly $5 higher than the regular version, so most people unknowingly buy the regular version.

Using generic or refilled Dell Series Ink cartridges will always give the low ink message.

To remove the message, try the Dell Series brand from Walmart Staples or Dell's website.

More the likley, your printer's manufacturer does not allow for the use of refilled ink cartridges on their products.

Please purchase a factory new cartridge from the manufactuer of the printer.

. HP 6210 all in one Kept printing till unplug


HP will tell you to never refill cartridges because they will not guarantee your printer will print properly with those refilled cartridges. If those refilled cartridges leak and cause damage to your printer HP will also not cover any repairs to the printer regardless of what sort of warranty coverage you have with them. Warranties only cover HP failures, not ones caused by using third-party or refilled ink cartridges. So, no it is not worth having the cartridges refilled - buy new HP-branded ones only.

Many 'refilled' cartridges aren't refilled. Try a new c artridge and see what happens. If it still doesn't work, you need a new print head.

Dell 926 injection refill kit didnt work


The ink your purchased is likely a cheap watered down version of what your printer is meant to take. You may notice that the ink smears when you rub the page directly after printing. Why you chose to use the blue and red ink to make black blows my mind. These refill kits are insanely cheap and buying the black could not have been much more. Not using black ink in the black cartridge would explain why your print is faded. Also, there is no way to reset the ink levels on this type of cartridge. As long as the printer still prints, just ignore the ink level indicator and print until the ink runs dry. I recommend Cartridge World for ink refills because they use high quality ink to manufacturer specified volumes while still saving you money.

Lexmark x500 series printer. just refilled cartrige, keep getting low ink message. how do I override?


I propose a class-action suit on behalf of everyone who owns a lexmark X5400 series. this is clearly by design that the system claims 'low ink' after only about 85 pages of little more than black and white documents, and then won't allow you to refill and replace the cartrige. I've attempted numerous little tricks that work with other systems, but the manufacturers of Lexmark seem to have gone to great lengths to prevent anyone from getting around replacing the ink cartrige. I know there have been other cases very similar to this. They wouldn't stand a chance. I propose revenge.

Cannon IP1800 Ink Refill


need to know how to refill the cartridges. I don't see a place to refill them. It is cheaper for me to buy a brand new printer than it is to buy the new cartridges when the ink runs out. Thats crazy.
