Why Isn’t the Lexmark Printer Detecting the Refilled Ink Cartridge?


There are a number of reasons why a refilled ink cartridge does not work.

A refilled ink cartridge is not an original cartridge so naturally there will be a lot of errors.

Reasons for not detecting the refill

Improper closing of the lid

The refilling is done after removing the lid. When the lid is removed and closed again there can be configuring issues.

This is because the integrity of the cartridge is disturbed.

Inappropriate filling of ink

You have to ensure that the cartridge is filled with an appropriate amount of ink. Or else the printer might not detect the refilled ink cartridge.

Incorrect reassembling of the cartridge

There might also be issues with the reassembling of the cartridge.

When you remove the cartridge for refilling, make a note of the dismantling process. And carefully handle the reassembling process.

Dust on the Cartridge

Sometime dust might settle on the cartridge. Remove the cartridge and carefully clean the outer side with a neat cloth.

One-time use Cartridge

Before refilling the cartridge make sure that it is not for one-time use. If the cartridge is designed for one-time use then it will not be detected by the printer.

Monitoring chip malfunction

The monitoring chip gives information on the amount of ink in the cartridge. However, if the monitoring chip is malfunctioning then you will be unable to know when the ink is low.
