No it doesn't work in the X3430 printer, I tried using the #23 cartridge myself. Only after trying it did I read the side of the box, which doesn't list this printer.

I have inserted the #2 ink cartridge. what number cartridge goes into the second slot. I have a lexmark 2500 series printer.


Normally the left side is the black and basic cartridge and the right which i'm guessing it's your 2nd slot is for colour or photo carts.

Greenish tint to black type


This is a dot matrix printer. The way they work is there is a print head that has a heap of little needles with flat tops on them, and they push out at high speed against the ink ribbon, and the ink ribbon is pushed against the paper to make a dot. Then the pin is retracted, spring loaded.
Pretty amazing that it can work that fast, eh!
So the only thing that can influence the ink colour on your paper is the ribbon.
Are you using original Lexmark ribbons? If so, my recommendation would be to take a sample print to where you got the printer from and get them to demonstrate the print quality of one of these printers, then compare it with yours.
Dot Matrix printers will not produce print as black or as high a quality as a laser printer, for example.
Perhaps the ink ribbons you are using have a less than top quality ink in them, and there is a bit of "bleeding" going on - it can only be the ribbon.
Another thing you can experiment with to get the best print quality is the print head gap - there will (should) be an adjustment, and getting that right will make a difference to print quality.
Hope this helps you.

Let the ink settle in the cartridge for awhile. Make sure no ink is on the outside of the cartridge which adversely effects the signal to the printer.

I put in a new black cartridge and it keep saying that the ink is low.


Check to make sure you're not buying trial cartridges. Often times when the manufacturer says to buy number XX it's another trial that's only half filled, I found this out about my Lexmark printer when I went to a local printer shop.

My lexmark 2500 printer won't print. I have a meeting in one hour and it's 45 minutes across town. My black ink cartridge is totally empty but my color cartridge is brand new. Do both cartridges have...


Both cartridges have to have ink them. I know that it sounds stupid, but that is the case. It's also a very bad practice to let your cartridge run completely out. By letting that happen you reduce the chance of it being successfully refilled. It can burn out the cartridges chip, as well. I wish that I had better news for you. Good luck.

Lexmark x3430 need ink cartriage


This is the only information I could find. Didn't your printer come with a black and color ink cartridge? If it did, all you need to do is take the ink cartridge out and write down the numbers written on the cartridge. The only ink cartridge I could positively confirm was the #24 color ink cartridge. The Lexmark website does not list any black ink cartridges for this model. This information was obtained from Officemax.com.
Lexmark - 24 Ink Cartridge - Color
Compatible with Lexmark Z1400 series, X3500 series and X4500 series printers;
Lexmark - 23 Ink Cartridge - Black

I purchased a lexmark print cartridge from walmart in somerset ky it printed 10 pages and was out of ink the box was stamped it was made in the phillippines the code number is 3464695902 i am very upset...


What was on the 10 pages? If you printed 10 photographs at maximum quality then you may very well be out of ink. If not, then I suggest either going back to walmart or contact lexmark directly.
