Question about Lexmark Z735 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Lexmark Z735 keeps saying "no cartridge"

I have a new cartridge in it but it still says no cartridge in it...I have reset,rebooted,unpluged,removed and replaced the cartridge to no avail,please help! I am thinking of taking out the printer and rerunning the program all over again to see if that helps. I have a APC surge protector on the computer,but we have had some bad storms here in Florida lately. Could that have anything to do with it?

    We're having the same problem with ours. I tried the eraser trick and that didn't work. This is the 2nd time we're replaced our cartridge, we had no problem the first time. I even tried to put the old one back in but it still gives me the same message.

It could be damaged from power surges, however, I still would be inclined to suspect the cartridge. Like CompuGuy suggested try replacing the original cartridge if you still have it and try again. If there is no chance look at the cartridge you?ll see electrical contacts that match up to contacts on the cartridge carrier. Inspect them all for damage and if you find nothing try cleaning them with a soft pink or white, non-residue/abrasive easer. If there is any oxidation on them that should remove it. Replace the cartridge and try again.

Note that Lexmark does not recommend using or refilled cartridges. Refilled cartridges tend to degrade print quality and cartridge performance. It is best to use only genuine Lexmark cartridges for your Lexmark printer.
You can try to reseat your cartridges into the printer. However, if problem continues, please replace your refilled cartridges with new genuine ones.

I just purchased a new black ink cartridge for my printer and it is not printer. The printer stop printing. I have a Lexmark X1270

Try to re-seat your cartridges into the printer.
  1. Open the printer cover.
  2. Remove both cartridges from the printer.
  3. Close the printer cover.
  4. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
  5. When the printer turns on, re-insert your color cartridge first. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  6. If no error appears, open the printer cover and reinsert the black cartridge. Close the cover and check for errors.
  7. If error appears when black is inserted, try to insert a different known working cartridge (your old cartridge maybe) to determine if it's a faulty cartridge issue.
If you can make a copy using the Copy button on the printer operator panel without a problem, then it could be a communication problem between your printer and the computer. A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply reboot your pc and unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When everything is back on, try to print again.
If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

It could be a slight communication problem. Disconnect the printer from the pc. Reboot the pc. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Reconnect it to your computer. Try to print again.

Lexmark x3470 message "printer cartridge missing"

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have changed my printer cartridge, it is the correct cartridge for a Lexmark Z735 and it keeps throwing up a message "unsupported cartridge"

Hi There,

Thanks for back up call, the " fault" has been sorted by disconnecting the printer, re-connecting
and re-booting the system. As the cartridge was a non Lexmark type we can only assume the
system identified this when the printer was rebooted, but cannot say so with any certainty.

Thanks again,
