The firmware update for the Lexmark Pro205 printer will help fix the problem where the printer is having trouble recognizing the ink cartridges and other issues. You can download and install the update for your Lexmark Pro205 printer by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/p205fw. If more than one download is available for your model, try the top download first.
There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder.
You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder
where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to
the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken)
the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still
under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for
HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no
way to repair this kind of breakage.
hi, if your printer is telling you that you stillhave to replace the cart even if you have just replaced it with a new one, it might be that the one you are installing is defective. you can try installing a different cart. if this issues persist, then i suggest you contck kodak's tech support hotline 800.421.6699
Did you install the original cartridge? if you have the old empty cartridge, try to install it and check the error is empty cartridge..if so the problem is the newly installed cartridge. try to buy the new original one.
