Make sure the cartridge is pressed completely down in the carrier. If it isn't installed correctly, the printer won't recognize that it's there. It's also possible the cartridge is defective, so in that case you should return it to the store where you bought it and get a new one.

    So if it didn't work, did you return the cartridge and try a new one?

Lexmark x5470 the machine received faxes but does not print them. saying "fax jobs in memory"... how do i print them?!?!


It could be because one of your cartridges has low ink level, thus printer is not able to continue printing the fax message. Open the printer cover and replace your cartridges (without navigating away from the fax mode). Once cartridge/s has been replaced, just hit the Check mark to print the fax message.

Ink cartridge prob


Try to remove the color cartridge from the printer and manually clean the cartridge nozzles with a damp paper towel. Here's a link to the Lexmark website to guide you on how to manually clean the nozzles http://bit.ly/9wzuAL. If this fails, maybe the cartridge has defective contacts. If this is the case, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. Thanks.

I have a Lexmark x5470 & I get an error unsupported cartridge


Ink cartriges have chips in them, if the printer does so many prints without getting the "I've had a new Original Cart fitted" it will stop untill,you give it one, regardless if there ink or not

Im afraid it doesn't care that you only need to use the colour cartridge, it is designed to cost you money and make money for lexmark not refillers.

Welcome to our modern world, manufactures make the ink hard to recycle by incorperation of expensive chips that makes refillers, unable to make a easy dollar, because if that want to make cartridges that work they must also fit the expensive chip.

All empty cartridges have a little ink left in them because getting air in ink lines is not a thing we want.

Printer does not recognize carts


I have refilled my cartridges many, many times. A messy job, but well worth the savings. Never over fill, handle carefully.
The printer will give an error message, but just press cancel, do not order a new cartridge, Your refilled cartridge will work on the lexmark x5470. Good luck.

Refilling the Lexmark x5470 color ink cartridge: Can't


There should be a dialogue box that pops up on your computer when the cartridge is low telling you to order new ones. Usually there is a box you can check to tell it to ignore that the cartridge is low. If you don't get the dialogue box, somewhere in your printing preferences you should be able to tell it to "ignore ink levels." There does not exist a cartridge that "does not contain this circuitry." There are no compatibles of these cartridges and all refills are of original manufacturer cartridges.

I refilled a 33 colour cartridge still says low


I would like to inform you that Lexmark printers does not support refilled cartridges. Please note that #33 cartridge is know as a rushmore cartridge and in this cartridge it has memory chip on it to identifiy the ink estimation. hence it is not possible to change the low ink indication.

Please note: using refilled cartridge may void ur printer warranty.

Compatable black ink cartridge


Is the print out normal? If the print out is normal you just need to reset the software to know that you have a new cartridge.

If you open the printer cover, remove and then reinsert the cartridge you should have a message on your display asking you to align the cartridge. When you do this it will reset your ink levels.

If you are using a brand new Lexmark cartridge this should work find. If you are using a refilled cartridge then you will still see the cartridge as they are not supported on Lexmark products.

Thanks

X5470 Lexmark printer


Lexmark and Dell use a sensor in the cartridge to sense a low ink level. Once the sensor has been activated, you cannot reset it. The printer should work fine except for the fact that you'll have to override the "low ink" message on your computer.

Manufacurers don't make money on printer hardware. All the money is made from ink replacement, so they make it as difficult as possible to use anything other than the stuff you buy from them. Some (HP) put in chips for an "expiration" of the ink/toner. Go beyond the expiration date, the thing won't work.
