Lexmark x3650 printer has a message to align cartridge after installing a new cartridge. It won't go away unless I press cancel on the printer and then it comes back again every time I turn it on. The printer prints fine and does not need aligning. I just need to cancel the alignment message.

SOURCE: Error message Alignment

There is no doubt in my mind it Will be the cartridges you are using, alignment will continue to be requested if print out is missing bits do yourself a favour and use HP gen., not trying to plug HP just telling you the facts

SOURCE: alignment after new cartridge

Hi I think that you will need to clean the gold dots on the printer carriage or if not done so remove the blue tape from the cartridge or if you are trying to use refills install some originals as this may help.

Hope this helps'

SOURCE: align cartridges error

This means one of the cartridges is defective, they cant align if they cant print.  What i did to fix this problem is insert 2 working cartridges and get it to align properly, even if they are low on ink, then lift the cover and the cartridges will move to the center.  When this happens pull the power cable out, then insert the full non functioning cartridge. Plug the power cable back in.  I tried this with a color cartridge, the color cartridge was non functioning but i was able to print in black.
Basically you align the cartridges and then swap them so the printer thinks they are still aligned.
The color still doesnt work and it is probably a defective color cartridge.

Brand new ink cartridge for Lexmark X3650. Error message to remove tape from cartridge. Tape has been removed. Print alignment prints in only black and same thing on cleaning process.


You can try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirts and clogs. You can also clean the nozzles using the Lexmark software on your computer. If you're using Windows, go to Programs/All Programs > Lexmark 3600-4600 Series folder > From the printer folder, click Maintenance > Clean Cartridges > Print. A page prints, forcing ink through the print cartridge nozzles to clean them.

I have Lexmark X125 and get message "Check Cartride" I put a new Black Cartride in and get message " None Changed" Printer won't print. What can I do?


What is the black cartridge version that you are using on your Lexmark X125 printer? If you are inserting a photo cartridge on your printer, please follow these steps: 1. Remove the black cartridge and insert the photo cartridge. The printer LCD screen will display CARTRIDGE? NONE CHANGED. 2. Press the Options button to select NEW RIGHT and then press Start. The printer LCD screen will now display RIGHT CARTRIDGE? 3. Use the Options button to select the STD PHOTO cartridge type and click Start. An Alignment page will then print. When the Alignment page is fully printed, the LCD screen will display CARTRIDGE ALIGN. 15 [00-30] A , where - 15 represents the straightest line on the page; - [00-30] is the value range you can select from, between 00 and 30 - A represents the line in each section. 4. Use the numbers on the keypad to select the number of the line you think is the straightest. As you press the number, the LCD will change to the next line automatically. Select the number representing the straightest line in each section.

Ink cartridge will not align


Hi, My Lexmark was giving me that message, even after I aligned it twice, and wasted ink in the process (part of the reason they do it). I finally pushed the red "X" to cancel the alignment, and it still kept giving me the message. Finally, after 3 or 4 times of canceling the alignment, it gave up or fixed itself, and now doesn't give me the message. Not knowing what kind of printer you have, I can't tell you more, but hope this helps.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using fixya.....

I have a Lexmark x3650, I just changed the ink cartridge and still get a message that cartidge is low on ink. How did I fix this?


Maybe the cartridge is not seated well in the carrier or just needs cleaning. Remove the cartridge from the printer. Follow these steps in manually cleaning the nozzles of the cartridge.

If problem persists, it's probably a defective cartridge. You might want to contact Lexmark Technical Support for assistance since it's a brand new cartridge.

Refilling cartridges


For that printer: there are 4 color and 4 black cartridges BESIDES the #31 photo cartridge. Lexmark has made it so you MUST either, throw away or send to them, the 36 and 37, the 36XL and 37XL. The printer will never again recognize them after they are removed from the printer...
However, the 36XLA and 37XLA AND the 36A and 37A as well as the 31 Photo may be removed from the printer, refilled, and reinstalled.

I have seen some forums that say you can but a piece of BLACK tape, across the bottom row of contacts on the non-refillable cartridges....I believe there are 4 to 7 contacts across the bottom row only.....and the printer will still give you a message that it needs ink.....but it WILL print. I have not tested this theory yet though. I have just gotten the first message saying my black ink is very low.

Hope this helps and I think Lexmark Corporation Sucks for tricking people like this. (This printer comes with the NON refillable cartridges as default, but I did NOT see in the documentation that it couldn't be refilled. Nasty people........:(

Good Luck~~! mstipps@yahoo.com
