Lexmark X1240 cartridge Error

I have a Lexmak X1240 All-in-One printer and the problem is the printer cartridge slots or the IC Itself. When you Install/Uinstall cartridges the stats in the solution center stay the same. For example their is no Ink cartridges in the printer but it shows there are. It's like the information that is stored in the printer isn't being erased and updated with new information about the cartridges.

So if someone can help me with this I would really appreciate it.

Try a pc reboot or try the owners manual for a reset sequence in the control panel on the printer itself Lexmark provides owners guides and a lot of useful info at thier web site here is the link if you are interested

I have a lexmark x1240 and just installed a new cartridge. I keep getting an error message that says " print cartridge missing" install print cartridge even though both cartridges are in the printer.


If you insert the old cartridge, does it recognize it? If it does, then it's a problem with the new cartridge. Try to check if you already have taken out the protective tapes out of the cartridge.

If it still doesn't recognize the old cartridge, then it's a problem with the printer.

Can not get the color to work in my lexmark x1240 printer to work? we tried to refill the old cartrage first but it leaked after a couple uses than we bought a new cartrage but it won't work.


Make sure that you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges and not refilled, re-manufactured or clone cartridges from the 3rd parties. Lexmark products work best with original supplies. If you are using genuine cartridges yet the problem persists, please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

How to replace the ink cartridge


1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer. You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red instead of the standard green.


2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.


3. Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges for refill.


4. Install the new ink cartridges after removing the protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.


5. Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.

Was given a Lexmark 1200 series X1240 all in one and cannot determine what type of ink cartridge to use.


The Lexmark X1240 printer uses #16 and #17 for Mono/Black, and #26 and #27 for Color. Hope this helps.
