Firstly, switch on the printer without a cartridge inside. Put in the old cartridge and if you get the Error 32, it could be poor contact. Clean the contacts in the printer (contact with the chip on the cartridge). If you don't get Error 32, there could be a problem with the chip contacts on the new OEM Lexmark cartridge or a faulty chip. As for other brands or remanufactured cartridges, it could be compatible parts they used. The chip and toner wheel have to be compatible.

on the inside of the top cover on the left side when the door is open there is a little switch youll see a little metal tab 5/16'wide push on this and see if the error clears. if it does this can be adjusted. if not pull the cartride out there are two sensors on the right inside one close to the front this is an optical sensor blow this out with canned air if you dont have an air compressor. then further back inside there is a two pin sensor make sure that if you push in on these that they dont stick. next there is a smart chip on toner caartridge that lines up with those pins when its installed clean these contacts. doing all of these things usually geets rid of the problem. no parts have been replaced recently right? check the connector to the logic board this is theeonly 3 pin connector that has black and white wires. this sohlud fix your problem

You could find the root cause by performing different steps. One of the easiest methods is that you need to make sure that the plastic protective tape which is usually used on the new black cartridge is off. Usually the user makes this mistake. This mistake might occurs due to absent-mindedness. The reason could also be some distractions which happen while loading the new black ink cartridge.

7. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
