printer problem

  sugarbabe 09:33 24 Oct 2008

Hi have a problem with my new printer. I ordered a particular lexmark printer as it is compatiable with other printers so all take the same cartridges.
I've been delivered a printer with slightly different model no apparently lexmarks newer model, unfortuantely when i changed cartridges says uncompatiable. Print cartridge fits fine just software says incompatiable.
Just wondered if there was a way to 'trick' software into thinking it has correct cartridge????/

Try typing your printer model into this page click here you may get some advice from there.

It's lexmark x2650 couldn't find anything on that website

A quick Google search for compatible ink cartridges for that model printer shows a remarkable lack of them. Is is a very new model for which no one has yet to produce compatibles? Or are the ones that you are trying out Lexmark originals? Perhaps an X2650 user can help.
