Question about Lexmark X2550 All-In-One Printer
My 2500 series lexmark that i bought a couple months ago just ran out of black ink. I refilled it with a nukote kit from walmart, but it wont recognize that it has been refilled. Is there any way to reset the black ink level. Keeps telling me that the black ink is empty and wont let me print anything. It wants me to go to lexmark.com and buy a new cartridge. Fat chance! I will trash this thing if i cant use the cheap refill kits. I am wondering if lexmark codes each of their ink cartridges or something so you cannot refill them.
I use Lexmark X2550 . I have refilled Cartridge 29A one time and it worked fine then my black cartridge 28 ran out, I replaced with 28A and the printer don't recognize both Cartridges.
There are a couple ways to trick it into accepting the cartridge. You can put a different one in, take it out and then put the filled one in. Or you can find a refill kit with instructions on what contacts to cover with tape and you have to do it 2 or 3 times to get the printer to reset. Sometimes you can shut off the computer and printer for 20 min and start it up again. Or you can get the sledge hammer and smash the stupid printer before it sucks up your life savings and vow never to buy from a company that profits from causing problems that they tell you can only be solved by using more of their overpriced solutions.

I had the same problem so i called lexmark and asked them. I was told that Lexmark printers do not work on refilled cartridges because each copper contact is different. I know this does not help any of us when it costs more to buy the ink than a new printer with the ink costs. It bites!!
