I do not own a Lexmark prnter BUT I do own a Primera Bravo Disc Printer that happens to use equivalent Lexmar #16 ( Black ) and #26 ( CMY ) cartridges. The difference between them is one clever little color ( half tone pattern ) decal that the printer’s laser reads and authenticates. Without that you cannot use store bought Lexmark 16 / 26 and have to use Primera’s super expencive versions of the same.
To defeat that I have VERY carefully removed by “Steaming” the very fragile bar code decal and attached it to a piece of heavy mylar. I trimmed it so that I can double sticky tape it to eh corresponding OEM position on the replacement Lexmark carts. The printer sees them as OEM Primera. Great!
I purchased a set of ten each spent but never refillied empties from Ebay and in this video I demonstrate how I go about refilling these carts with some refilling tools from a couple of companies using OCP inks for Lexmark 16 / 26 carts.
