BINGO just refill my 36 and printing :) just place tape (2) on the bottom the outside points
ONLY THE ONE OUTSIDE BOTH SIDES :) :) :)
HP his something like this too. 2nd try BINGO IT WORK drill right hole place tape back over refill hole LOL
I hope that I may help someone that's confused about were to tape. Hold the number 36 cartridge with the gold contacts facing you. The two gold pads that you need to tape are located on the bottom row on the outside. remember don't tape the ones in the middle, just the two outside ones. One on the left and one on the right. When you are finished you will have tape, two gold square pads and tape. I used blue painters masking tape and its working well....
That worked like an absolute charm. I was looking on Ebay for reset chips and was willing to pay but this free solution is perfect. BTW, I have a Lexmark 5650 and scotch tape works just fine. Does anyone know which contacts you would cover for the 37 cartridge?
It works, just used my #14 lexmark after refill. I put tape on the 4 bottom points of each sides. You will see 1 alone at the bottom and 3 in a group in the middle, tape the 4 and do the same on the other side. Put it back in the printer and it works... It will dispay a '?' on the ink cartridge level and status when you print.
I drilled my hole in the top of the 36 over the "e" in Lexmark BEFORE I installed it in the printer. I will add a little ink every once in a while before it gets down too far to trip to the 'needs a new cartridge soon' level. I'll let you know if it works. For the 37, without taking off the top and seeing where the color sections are, I won't know until I can take apart a used 37. Then I will try the same time. This way, I don't have to remove the cartridge....we'll see how it works!

You might have put it in incorrectly. Sometimes it could be as simple as taking the cartridge out and putting it back head but make sure it is snapped in correctly. Also, you could try unplugging the machine, taking the cartridge out and then replacing it once the machine is on. That could work as well. If it doesn't let me know.
If you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges and you've already tried rebooting your printer and reseating the color cartridge in the ink cartridge carrier, then it could be a faulty color cartridge. Your cartridge may need to be replaced from the retail store where you bought it from. If it's beyond the return period, in that case, you'll need to contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.
They are not resettable. This is one of the downsides to using refilled cartridges for this style cartridge. You should be able to tell the printer to ignore the ink levels and just print until it runs out of ink.
I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and we do not refill the Lexmark 36 and 37. The reason is that your printer turns off the electronics on the cartridge when the ink gets low, so you can't reuse the cartridge. Your printer will only function with an electronically functioning cartridge. We NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills a lot of the time, and across manufacturer their ink costs the most and is designed to clog the cartridge if you don't use it fast enough. We recommend HP printers that take integrated print head cartridges and Canon printers that take tank style cartridges.
I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't refill the Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges. Your printer deactivates the electronics on this cartridge when the ink levels get low. Your printer needs a black and a color cartridge with functioning electronics to print. I NEVER recommend Lexmark printers. They are poorly made, don't accept refills easily, and have the most expensive ink across manufacturers and it is designed to clog your cartridge unless you use it quickly. If you keep this machine you are stuck buying Lexmark brand ink (the return program cartridges are a little cheaper though).
Hi Here are a few possibilities... 1. Try cleaning the contacts on the inkjet cartridge and where they make contact inside the printer. (use cotton wool and Alchol) if that does not work... 2. Pull out power cable from printer wait 1 MINUTE then insert cable and switch back on again. (some printers reset to factory settings) 3. Remove printer cable from computer... Uninstall Printer driver from computer... Switch off both printer and computer. Wait 1 minute... Reconnect cables and switch on printer and computer... Allow computer to find printer reinstall driver. 4. Try installing old cartridge to see if printer rejects that? 5. You may have a faulty inkjet cartridge (return it to store if so)
I managed to get it working, just damage the connection point (where the chip is). I used a knife to break part of the connection and now I can fill the cartridges myself for a fraction of the price :)
