These printers can use a B&W cartridge and a color cartridge, or two color cartridges for enhanced color. I believe when you switch these it is supposed to detect automatically and change it in the driver settings. If it isn't the case for what ever reasonhowever, you should still be able to set it manually in the printer properties. If this fails, just try turning off the printer, unplugging the printer and moving it to another USB port, and turning it back on. Maybe you need to kick start the detection process.

I have inserted a new black ink cartridge (34) and get an error message 'left cartridge missing, insert black or colour photo cartridge' have peeled label off and reinserted several times but still...


Make sure you are inserting a genuine Lexmark cartridge. Try to insert a different known working cartridge, maybe your old black cartridge, to determine if your new cartridge is faulty. If inserting your old black cartridge gives you a message saying "very low ink" or something to that effect, then most probably there's something wrong with the new black cartridge. Have it replaced with a new one from the store where you bought it from. You may also contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

“Lexmark does not support the refilling of its ink cartridges. Refilling the ink cartridges can cause them to leak, thus clogging or even damaging the print head. Any damage to your printer caused by refilled ink cartridges may not be covered under warranty”. Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Black 32 cartridge not working in X5410 printer


Did you purchase a "Lexmark" factory new cartridge or was it a third party cartridge made for a Lexmark printer.

The Black 32 Cartridge is listed for the family of printers. So either you have a defective cartridge (Contact Lexmark and ask for a warranty exchange of the cartridge) or return the cartridge to the store you bought it from and tell them your problem.
