Question about Lexmark X6650 4-In-One Wireless InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The Lexmark X6650 gives an error: Right cartridge incorrect. This is a new original cartridge I've just installed. The electronic part on the printer is clean and the electronic part on the cartridge seems OK. Do you think the printer needs a service or could the new cartridge be faulty?

My printer keep saying Right cartridge incorrect, but the cartridge is right and it was working until my lights went out.


Have you tried removing the cartridges and re-inserting them? Or turning the printer off and disconnecting the power cord for several minutes?

'Left cartridge incorrect' error message. Have tried changing the cartridge, cleaning the cartridge, running a flush cartridge etc but will not recognise the cartridge and so will not print. is it...


These printers monitor the cartridges and dont like you using aftermarket ie non Lexmark, or not made by lexmark cartridges. So Im wondering If you have tried 2 x brand spanking new OEM Lexmark cartridges, or if you are trying to use cheaper from net remanufactured or "for use in lexmark" cartridges. If this is the case then this is your problem and also very common.

Are you using a photo cartridge and a normal color one?

These I beleive can not be mixed in different slots.
- Photo cartridges you will only need one installed on the left side.
- Normal ink you will need two installed (Black on left and color on right) .



Also Lexmark themselves have a couple of documents on this issue, here and Here

But these efforts will all be useless unless you are using Brand New Original Equipment Manufactured (OEM) Cartridges. This I see day in and day out, I get a lot of people tell me they are using original when they are not in fact, You will know by the price and lexmark carts do not state "for use in"

I dont think it is a problem with the printer, if you are using both brand new OEM cartridges then the firmware fix from lexmark should solve or you are trying to mix Photo type and normal type carts.

But these days ink jet printers are non repairable (well too costly and uneconomical to repair) throw away items, the expense is in the inks and manufactures vertually give away the printers so you will buy their inks, and lexmarks are designed not to like refill and aftermarket inks as are most modern inkjets.

Hope this helps, please let me know if you are using real ink and have tried the firmware fix and still are having issues, but all i probally end up telling you is buy another and welcome to our disposable way of life;)

Regards
Steve

Good job in re-seating the cartridges into the printer. Try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge has gone bad.

Just tried installing a new photo31 ink cartridge and I am getting right cartridge incorrect message.


If you are using a photo cartridge, in your case the #31 cartridge, insert that in the left carrier where the black cartridge is. Make sure your color cartridge is inserted in the right carrier to continue printing.

Lexmark x6650 will not identify new cartridges


Please contact Lexmark Technical Support and let them know that you need two replacement cartridges for the two defective ones you have.

Make sure that you purchased factory new Lexmark cartridges, not cartridges that have been refilled and repackaged by a third party company.

Cartridge error


How I solved this problem was, I took out the color cartridge (which seem to be the one giving the error message) and worked only with the black ink (and chose print black and white )

My color ink cartridge had been refilled at Walgreens. The Black ink cartridge is an original Lexmark

Right cartridge incorrect


This solution (RESET the BRICK - solution 1 above) worked for me!

I had a brand new out of the box Lexmark X4580 and after one or two prints I was suddenly getting a "Left Cartridge Incorrect" error showing on the Printer Control Panel and the printer would now all me to print anything.

After about an hour of trying this and that (cartridges in, out and shalen all about!) ; no avail, I tried this and hey presto, it worked.

When I removed the "Brick" power supply I left it until the Green LED had faded right out though, I dont know if that was significant or not. Fingers crossed all is sorted now!
