Clean the contacts on the cartidge and printer ( open the replace ink door wait for the printhead to come to center and turn off power) if that does not work then replace cartridge, it might be a recycled one that they did not chane the chip.

try to make sure that the clear "ribbon" is situated correctly inside the unit, otherwise it will not communicate correctly with the moving electronics in the cartridge tray

With your lexmark, the printhead is separate to the cartridge, so you can try cleaning the printhead on the printer with correct pc cleaning fluid and a cotton bud (Q tip is us) see if this helps. It will not hurt to use a wet wipe (baby wipe, not perfumed) and gently clean the gold contacts (points) on the cartridge where it goes into the printer. Post back if no good. For the hp, i believe hp's have the printhead atattched to the cartridge itself (i do not have as much info about hp's) and as you have tried cleaning already (assuming you cleaned as above) you coukd try uninstalling and reinstalling printer. Post back if you nees assistance in this.

yes you have to have both of them then everything should be fine.if you have the color cartridge that is empty put it in for now and see if it will work it will let u know that it is empty but at least you will be able to print in black
