Question about Lexmark X3550 All-In-One Printer
Works great, but recently installed very high quality ink cartridge (but not the lexmark factory at rip off prices). First the printer makes it very difficult to print by constantly warning me it doesn't have factory ink.
Now it's just told me the colour is empty, which is just not possible, it's hardly used any of the ink.
I think lexmark has set me up so they can rip me off by making me buy massively over priced ink cartridges. Any way I can get the printer to use the ink in the non-lexmark cartridge? I bought a black and a color print cartridge that said Lexmak cartridge but the color #31 cartridge did not work in my printer. I have Lexmark x3550-4550. I went back and bought a #24 color cartridge and it works but now I have a grinding sound from the inside, I think it is a roller. What do I do?
I have put in genuine Lexmark ink catridges but an error states incorrect cartridge can anyone help.

No solution except not to ever buy lexmark again --my printer 3500 is a sandwich short of lunatic and yes ive just found out the catridges are insanely priced.

For the most optimal output experience with your model, I recommends that you update your printer firmware. The firmware helps ensure that you receive the highest yields of ink available from the cartridges, which offers the greatest value and means fewer necessary cartridge replacements. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark S300 Series Firmware Update. If more than one download is listed for your model, choose the first download in the list. If it is the wrong firmware level, an error message will tell you which firmware level is correct.

The 100/100XL cartridges are not licensed to be refilled. You can, however, refill the 100A or 100XLA cartridges available on the Lexmark website at http://www.lexmark.com. You should be aware that a refilled cartridge will not be able to report its ink level, and you might not get the print quality you expect from ink that is specially formulated by Lexmark to pass through microscopic nozzles at extremely high temperatures.
