    • If the message on the computer does not identify a particular cartridge (it says only Print cartridge error ), follow the steps below to determine which cartridge is causing the problem.
      1. Open the cartridge access door.
      2. Remove either cartridge (not both).
      3. Close the cartridge access door.
        • If the computer message is Print Cartridge Error , then the print cartridge that is still in the printer is the problem cartridge.
        • If the computer message is NOT Print Cartridge Error (instead, it says that the cartridge you have removed is ...Either missing, not detected, or incorrectly installed), then the cartridge you have removed is the problem cartridge.

  • If the problem still occurs, the electrical contact between the cartridges and the printer might be bad. Removing and reseating the cartridges might help. Also, you can clean the electric contacts on the cartridges with a dry cloth.
Hope that will help solve your problem!

Replace cartridge message after new cartridge installed


If the cartridge you are installing is a refilled/remanufactured cartridge it may be that you need to indicate to the printer that it is a used cartridge and not a new one upon installation. This is because the cartridge works on a basis of counting pages and calculating page coverage to estimate how full it is. It has no way of telling that it has been refilled and can indicate to the printer that it is running low and needs replacing.

This message could however be the result of something as simple as the printer not being able to recognise the cartridge. In which case I would recommend wiping the contacts on the cartridge with a piece of kitchen tissue and re-installing. if this fails to helps I would recommend replacing the ink cartridge.

My x4650 is not recognising when I refill the black 36XLA cartridge. Just keeps telling me it is empty. There is not a problem with the cartridge itself just the failure to recognise it has been refilled....


turn on/off, unplug, plug in2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats. or take cartridge out and put back in to insure in securely.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

Dell 942 AIO printer won't recognise black cartridge:


I think you purchased a black cartridge with bad electronics. Basically your cartridge can't communicate with your printer and you should exchange it for a new one. There is no way to "fool" your printer into accepting refills with bad electronics. What you can do is when you get the message that you aren't using genuine cartridges and it won't be able to estimate ink levels is to check the box indicating to ignore the ink levels.

After replacing ink cartridge printer dose not reconize one of six


Using refilled in cartridges and incompatible inks result in the following problems.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might leak and cause product damage. One method for refilling ink cartridges is to drill a hole through the cartridge, refill the ink, and then plug it. In some cases this plug does not hold, and the ink runs into the product and damages the printed circuit boards.
  • Refilled ink cartridges frequently exhibit spotty printing or fail to print. This problem might be a direct result of the nozzles being plugged with dried ink. Because the vents of the refilled cartridges have been opened, air is able to enter the cartridge and dry the ink.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might exhibit lower print quality, for the following reasons.
    • Printing algorithms used to create the various colors are based on particular printer inks. Using incompatible inks might result in color matching problems.
    • Refilled cartridges might have damaged nozzle orifices, result in various problems with print quality.
    • company products to which the printer belongs to can use a time delay between pages to accommodate the properties of the specific media type and ink being used. This prevents smearing problems from one page to the next. Using incompatible ink will alter the effects of this time delay and might result in poor print quality.
  • printer might not recognize refilled ink cartridges. The refilling process may involve altering the ink cartridge enough that the product is unable to recognize it. The condition of the print cartridge electrical contacts deteriorates with use. This also results in the product being unable to recognize the refilled cartridge.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might get stuck in the product. Because the cartridges from other manufacturers have been altered, cartridges might become stuck in the product. This problem might require that the product be disassembled to remove the cartridge.
  • printer at times cannot predict the long-term effects on product reliability from using different ink formulations.

Cannot overide "wrong cartridge" message when using oem cart


Lexmark International does not recommend the use of third party inks or inkjet cartridge refill kits. Genuine Lexmark inks and cartridges are perfectly matched to the printing system. Using genuine Lexmark ink and cartridges ensures that every document produced is of the highest possible print quality, providing long-term dependable service from your Lexmark printer.
Lexmark cannot assure the excellent print quality and reliability of its inkjet cartridges after a cartridge has been refilled. Using incompatible inks in an attempt to extend the life of a genuine Lexmark cartridge beyond its recommended usage can cause failures in several different areas of the printer. Inkjet cartridges and printer failures caused by refilling or a third party ink are not covered by your Lexmark printer Warranty, Extended Warranty or Service Agreement.

Please use genuine Lexmark cartridges for best results.

Printer cartridges not recognised


Sometimes even when an ink cartridge has been refilled to capacity, your printer still registers it as empty. This is because your printer remembers that the cartridge was previously installed and it can only remember it as being empty. Part of this is due to technology put in place by printer manufacturers so that you will always have to buy new cartridges. Part of it is also that print catridges are clogged if not used for sometime after its empty even after refilling this is because the contact was already clogged due to the dryness of the old ink inside it before refilling so in that case you will clean/soak the contacts with solvent before refilling .
again since there is no “official” way to fix this problem, you have to basically clear the printer’s memory to make it recognize that you are installing a full cartridge. If you have tried to install the refilled cartridge and you have done all you can to convince your printer that the cartridge isn’t still empty, then basically you just have to unplug your printer for a minute and then trying reinstalling again. but it should fix this problem and it can potentially fix other annoying things your printer is doing.
