X2500 new black cartridge won't work

Try to insert a different known working or a new color cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center should you need further assistance.

Put brand new lexmark 28 cartridge just 4 days ago. Maybe used 10 times. Computer says ink is low and won't print anymore. However, can still make copies.

It could be just a slight communication failure between your cartridges and the printer. Try to re-seat the cartridges by removing and re-inserting them into the cartridge carrier.
I hope this helps.

Replaced the ink cartridge and it is not printing

Try to check your ink levels. On your computer, go to Start menu > Programs > Lexmark 2500 Series folder > Lexmark Solution Center. If ink levels are substantial for printing, go to the Maintenance tab and select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. It could be due to clogs and dirt in the cartridge nozzles caused by long periods of non-usage.
If the light continues to flash for both cartridges, try to replace both cartridges with different known working cartridges or better yet, replace them with new genuine Lexmark supplies.

My new color store bought cartridge is not being recognized as full on my printer #29 for x2500 Lexmark rpinter.

Make sure you are inserting a genuine Lexmark cartridge.
It could be a slight communication problem between your cartridge and your printer. Try to remove the cartridges from your printer > close the printer cover > unplug / re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it > when the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Changing ink cartridge

  • Here is an instruction set I found at
  • Step 1 Press the "Power" button to turn on your Lexmark X2500 3-in-1 printer.
  • Step 2 Open the top portion of the printer to reveal the ink cartridges.
  • Step 3 Lift the gray plastic cover on the left. Remove the empty black #28 ink cartridge. Next, lift the purple plastic cover on the right and remove the empty color #29 ink cartridge.
  • Step 4 Remove the new black #28 ink refill cartridge from its packaging. Tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor. Now, remove the new color #29 ink refill cartridge from its packaging and tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor.
  • Step 5 Turn the cartridges so that you can read the label. This is the way the cartridges should face when being put into the printer.
  • Step 6 Slide the black #28 cartridge into the slot on the left side and push it down. Slide the color #29 cartridge into the slot on the right side and push down.
  • Step 7 Push the gray plastic cover down over the #28 cartridge until it clicks closed. Push the purple plastic cover down over the #29 cartridge until it clicks closed.
  • Step 8 Close the top portion of the printer. Your new ink cartridges are installed, and your printer is ready to use.

    I get an error message on my Lexmark X2500 All in One that there's a problem with the ink cartridge. As instructed I removed and re-installed the cartridges. I have also cleaned the connectors with a damp...

    Hello. It seems that you have a mechanical/hardware problem in the printer itself. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back to the power source after 10-15 seconds. When the printer's ready, insert the cartridges and make sure the cartridges are properly seated and locked in the carrier. Make sure there's no foreign objects blocking the carrier. Close the cover. Let it print the alignment page all the way through without cancelling it. If it still makes the banging/knocking sound, I would advise you to call Lexmark. That is a sound of a defective printer already. Good luck!
