Often when you refill a cartridge the print nozzles get clogged. You can try running a nozzle cleaning function on your printer's software (if it has that feature). You can try setting the nozzles against a lightly moistened paper towel to try to clear the nozzles. If that works you can then lightly rub the contacts clean. If that won't work then you will probably need a new ink cartridge. Refilling a cartridge will usually work if you do it before the cartridge is completely empty.
Buy yourself a Canon printer that has a cost-per-page equal to HALF that of the lexmark you are using (and thus paying for itself within a year) and you won't need to refill cartridges anymore. Give your lexmark a trip to 'inkjet heaven', aka the bin.
Sad to say it, but I've been there, and done that..
Refills fuk up the printer nozzles, quite possible it will never get good again, cheap ink appears to have too large particles and will permanently mess the printing up...
My old Epson never worked after a refill, (actually a "pirated" cartridge)
