    Hi,

    I would like to understand the electrical contacts that form a part of
    inkjet cartridges.

    Any technical references appreciated

    Special interest Lexmark 4, 5

    Thanks

    Are you really interested in contacts or are you trying to reset the Lexmark
    cart?
    If the latter, Lexmark has an internal fuse that blows when empty. Not
    practical to fix that.

    Could you explain what you want to understand? They are just contacts, they
    make a connection with other contacts.

    You might get a start here:

    But there are dozens of methods, many with patents.
