Question about Lexmark X7170 All-In-One InkJet Printer
This error means that the 34 35 Lexmark cartridges has failed electrically and is now no good. The two I came across were faulty due to a power surge, so I have replaced the cartridges with new ones and there dose not seem to be any more problems with this error. If any other solutions come up please let me know .
Thank you N.J.Jones

Lexmark #34 carts are smart
try this workaround ---> take out the carts >>> Turn off >>> turn it back on >> check the display for messages shown>> Re install the carts as "new" by selecting it as new using the arrow keys !! >>

Tips for a great answer:
Check to see if the installed cartridge is the correct one for the printer. If the cartridge is the proper part number, remove the ink cartridge and make sure all the packaging tape has been removed from the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge. Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again.
If the error continues, remove the cartridge again and clean the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge, and the contacts inside the printer, by following the instructions below:
1. Use a clean, dry, soft, lint-free cloth. Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of the cartridge.
2. Wipe the copper-colored strip with the dry cloth. Use an upward motion, from the nozzle end to the top of the cartridge. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate. Wipe the contacts only once.
3. To clean the printer contacts, carefully look for fibers or contamination on the electrical contacts inside the carriage assembly, but do not wipe the printer contacts with any object. The contacts in the printer can be damaged if too much pressure is applied during a wiping process. Try to remove any visible attached debris within the carriage assembly by gently pulling the debris off with your fingers. If the carriage contacts show noticeable damage, contact the Customer Care Center listed in the printer's User's Guide.
Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. If the error continues, the cartridge may need to be replaced.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.
