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.

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.

Error message print cartridge missing

Does this happen with every cartridge you install ?
I've seen this problem before with several brands of printers, it's usually a sensor issue connected to a fairly flimsy 'ribbon' wire. Either the wire (ribbon) has come loose or the sensor has failed. Hopefully this isn't your issue as the cost of repair is usually more than the cost of a new printer.

Replaced the colour cartridge with a photo one (both Lexmark) and the photo cartridge is not recognised and I'm only getting black and white printing

The photo cartridge goes in the black cartridge carrier. Keep the color cartridge in the color cartridge carrier to continue printing.

Black cartridge not printing

This might sound really silly, but when you removed the protective tape over the cartridge, did it all come off? I had this problem once, and the tape had separated, the coloured part had come off leaving a clear film over the print head. Once I peeled that off, all was well. Hope that helps. Aileen xx
