This is common problem with lexmark cartridges they detect refilled cartridge you need to clean the copper contacts of the cartridge and then insert it if it still shows " color cartridge replacement required" message then you need to buy original color cartridge.........

    It has an orginal cartridge in it which I refilled with ink and it still doesn't work. Cleanining didn't help either.

    My lexmark X5410 will not accept the black and colored refilled ink cartridges from walgreens. It keeps reporting that the right cartridge is missing.


    If you have refilled the cartridges 28 and 29, it's pretty normal that your printer won't print. Those cartridges are not for refill (they can be refilled, but won't work once the printer says they are empty). If you have refilled a 28A and 29A and it doesn't recognize the one of the cartridges, try removing them and clean the electric contacts with a dry cloth. Put them back in. If that doesn't help, I suggest you buy a new cartridge.

    Refilled ink cartridges at Walgreens, printer won't recognize


    Hello!
    28 and 29 are not meant to be refilled. They can physically be refilled, but they won't work. That is because Lexmark has put in a smart chip that doesn't allow refill.
    You need to buy 28A and 29A or 34 and 35, those cartridges can be refilled with no problem.

    Refilled cartridge, still says it needs to be replaced...


    If you let the cartridge run totally dry then they need to be reset or replaced, I have tried purchasing reset software myself and found then to be a waist of money as they do not reset the cartridge at all. Do yourself a favor and replace the cartridge and remember to top up the cartridges before they get half empty.

    Hard to tell...There are other issues which could contribute related to the printer itself, etc.

    But I will say in my experience often refill kits for ink cartridges don't work if you allow them the cartridge to run bone dry. Maybe the internal components become hard and won't re saturate with new ink, not sure. If new cartridges work; and the refills don't I'd say there may be a problem with them.

    Using refill cartridges


    That is because they cannot e refilled. The ones you get with your printer ( 28 & 29) are what Lexmark calls "return program cartridges", which means they are for one use only.
    I suggest you buy other cartridges that can be refilled. Those are either 28A or 34 (black cartridge) and 29A or 35 (color cartridge).
    Here is a link to Lexmark's site, where you can see the list of cartridges that are compatible with your printer.

    Refilled color cartridge for lexmark Z845


    The only work around to this is to use two catridges(2 color and 2 black and white). The reason is the printer has a mechanism to check if the same catridge is being used again. SO when you have two cartridges when one is finished refill the other and use and vice-versa. This way you will be able to refill and use for ever without any problems..

    Lexmark 29 ink cartridge


    For the record the lexmark 29 (18C1429) cartridge is a one time use cartridge (return program cartridge). If you want to get a Lexmark 29 cartridge that you can refill you must buy the 18C1529 Lexmark 29 cartridge. This cartridge can be refilled and reused. The catch, you can only buy this cartridge from Lexmark.com new. I know of one company that sells the remanufacture Lexmark 29 (18C1529) yourinksolution.com.
