There is nothing wroung with refilling but there is something wroung with the cartridge if it does not print. You might have ran out of refill cycles on that particular cartridge and not even know about the cycle requirments for lexmark printers. Your issue could be resolved by purchasing a new cartridge fixing the old one is not going to cut it.
Thanks and please do rate your experience with my solution.
With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the
driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into
the USB port until told to do so.
To fix a fouled install :
(1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs
(2) Shutdown the computer
(3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port
(4) Restart the computer
(5) Run the Driver Installation software
(6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer
(7) When the sofware asks for the printer connect it and continue
Does the printer attempt to print? Did you replace the black or colored ink? If it was the black ink will it print in color? If it prints in color, check the black ink cartridge for tape residue on the gold contacts. The blue tape will sometimes leave the adhesive on the cartridge and not the tape. It cleans off easy with a soft cloth.
I had the same issue with my Lexmark X1290, I solved it by opening up the device, so the ink cartridges should pop, they didn't so I pressed the power button to switch it off, and then switched it back on (with the device open!) and all the paper flowed out, the flashing stopped and it could print again. Good Luck!
