Question about Lexmark Optra S 2450 Laser Printer
Hi, my printer won't work. I keep getting the error message Printer Cartridge Missing, though the cartridge has been in the whole time. It started when I took the cartridge out to refill the ink; when I put it back in, it gave me the message. I bought a new printer cartridge and tried that as well- still the message. I've taken out the cartidge and put it back in a few times, cleaned the old cartridge's contact with an alcohol swab, turned the printer off and on, unplugged it, etc- nothing has worked. Please let me know if there's anything that might fix it. The printer is only about 3 years old and has been in pretty good shape before this. Thank you!!
Had cartridge refilled put back but comes up no cartridge

I would look for a micro switch that detects the presence of the cartridge- this is either stuck in the off position or has dropped a lead.

Tips for a great answer:
it is possible that once the computer and printer are communicating that the error messages could also be resolved by running the printer diagnostic program.
