    Hello, my Lexmark pro805 printer cannot “authorize” the cartridge. I tried to follow solution no.2, but have no idea what “Gently cut off the black carbon article allowed to disconnect” is supposed to mean.

    Any ideas?

    What if the printer sill does not recognize the color cartridges ? (I’ve cut off the carbon article and reinstalled the cartridges). Now the display says “Install color cartridges” and the printer would not print.

    I have a prevail pro705 that I tried to replace the black ink cartridge. 🙁 the printer would not authorize it. I then scratched the article and reinstalled the cartridge. 😥 I then tried another cartridge thinking that I cut the article incorrectly but with the same results. 😡 I needed the printer right-a-way so I took another step. Taking the empty OEM cartridge, I removed it’s transponder and replaced the one in the new 123 cartridge. It worked but the level is incorrect but it printed. 🙂
    What am I doing wrong with the cartridge that I could not get it to be recognized ❓ ❓ ❓

    These cartridges are a rip-off. My printer is a Lexmark Pro905 and ordered those 100XL replacement cartridges.I have wasted over $60 of my hard-earned money by ordering black & color cartriges on a single mail-order because I thought of trying out this websites’products. These cartridges just won’t be recognized or authorized by my all-in-one printer. Except once: after a lot of tweeking on one of them I got a black-ink cartridge to flow some ink, but guess what..? it shortly thereafter contaminated its two neigbors-ink-cartridges..yellow and cyan. Bravo! Followed all steps as stated above, sent an inquiry, got the same instructions again from tech support, then was asked to send pictures of the problem print out, and so on, etc etc… WHAT The HECK!??! As a previous customer wrote, What is “Gently cut off the black carbon article allowed to disconnect” suppose to mean. Simply ludicrous. They just won’t Refund any cartridges either if sealed packaged is opened. Once again foolish(How are we supposed to try out our new cartridges if we can’t break the seal on them for it will void the return policy?). Terrible experience, period. A Real OEM Authentic Print cartridge will NOT give anyone such a pain in the a$$.. i.e You put the new cartridge in the printer and secondly,it just works fine. Word-of-mouth and social medias hopefully with lighten up a lot of people before ordering from here. Count on me.
