The trouble with most of the printer ink cartridge manufactures is that they have for a number of years made it harder to refill cartridges and want you to buy them new. It will depend on what model of printer as there are certain cartridges that can be refilled only for that model. Also what can affect your being able to refill cartridges is if your printer has had an update to it's own software, not the driver software.

SOURCE: black ink cartidge

If a black cartridge will not print, with no error messages, it is probably th printhead. Clean it with proper cleaning solution. Refilled ones if done yourself or by someone else, can also have air bubbles, Try blowing down refill hole with tissue under the cartridge to stop ink spills. Also, if you press a folder non scented wipe under the cartridge firmly, you should get a solid little black line or impression. This will tell you if the ink is getting down ok. Try reprinting.

SOURCE: refilled cartridge , printer says right cartridge incorrect

Lexmark builds intelligence into their cartridges and printers to prevent the use of refilled cartridges.

Lexmark has never approved the use of anyone else's ink for their printers primarily because there is no way to prove the quality of the ink.

Please purchase a Lexmark cartridge.

Possible causes here are;

Most likely, the contacts in the printer not touching the chip properly (hence why it works in another printer). A simple gentle 'tweak' would work in this case.

The other possibility is the firmware version of the (offendig) printer being incompatible with the version of the after-market chip you are using. No solution here, other than trying a DIFFERENT MAKE of chip.

Refilled cartridges become unreliable and can damage your printer - you will need to try an original Lexmark cartridge before considering replacing your printer.

Tri colour problembought to refilled cartridges one displays problem other table, is it the refilled cartridges or the printerwrong cartridge 344 not compar


Hello!
When the printer tells you "wrong cartridge", it is because it cannot recognize the cartridge.
Remove the color cartridge and gently wipe the electric contacts on it with a dry cloth. Put the cartridge back in and check for error messages.
If the problem persists, you will need to buy a new color cartridge, because the one you have is damaged- one of the contacts on it has blown, and when you place it in the printer, it won't recognize it, because one of the contacts is missing (that is why some printers give a warning sign "cartridge missing").
Hope that helps!

Printer won't print-says color cartridge is missing and it is there


Just a shot in the dark, was it a refilled ink cartridge. I know HP has a problem detecting the remanufactured cartridges from time to time. And too, if it is not refilled cartridge perhaps you just have a bad cartridge.
Oh, of course Julie remembered to pull the tape off of the bottom of the ink cartridge, correct?
Hope this did some good, please leave rating,
thank you kindly.

HP 4280 - new black refilled cartridge not recognised


hi steve... the solution to your problem is a costly one. the printer keeps in memory 2 cartidges for colour and 2 for black, when a third is placed in the printer the first one is deleted out of memory same for the colouredand same for the black... therefore you need 3 cartridges each to do the trick.
eg. if you want to use colour cartridge #2 then 1st place colour nuber 1 or 3, then turn it on let it reads, then open door and place in colour number 3 or 1 let it read, then take out and place in coulur number 2 and it will see it as new

Refilled my Dell Ink Cartridge


It's never going to recognize a product that is not original even if it's refilled in the Dell cartridge. That's happened to me--you get used to it. Dell just wants you to get it from THEM and not from any where else. I have a 922 All-in-One....It's been good for the past 3 years.

Hi, did you refill yourself or did you buy a refilled cartridge. If you purchased a refilled cartridge and the chip is missing, you will need to take the chip off your old cartridge and install on the refilled cartridge.
