The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test. If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly.
If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer.

I need my lexmaerk z845 to hook up to my vaio laptop so i can print things off


Try a direct USB connection and get the drivers from Lexmark:
http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=recommendedDownloads&locale=EN&productCode=LEXMARK_Z845&segment=DOWNLOAD&userlocale=EN_US
The Vista driver should work under Windows 7. Install the drivers before connecting the USB cable.

If the USB connection doesn't work, first try a different cable and then try changing USB ports. The printer does have internet connection options but those can be trickier to diagnose a problem. (Problems with firewalls or Adding the device in the Control Panel are common.)

I hope this helps.

Using refill cartridges


That is because they cannot e refilled. The ones you get with your printer ( 28 & 29) are what Lexmark calls "return program cartridges", which means they are for one use only.
I suggest you buy other cartridges that can be refilled. Those are either 28A or 34 (black cartridge) and 29A or 35 (color cartridge).
Here is a link to Lexmark's site, where you can see the list of cartridges that are compatible with your printer.

I replaced my cartridges and the printer won't print or accept the cartridges. Printer is a Lexmark Z845


Simplest things to check first, did you remove the plastic covering the ink nozzles? Also sometimes you have to tell the printer somehow that you have changed the cartridges. Also try simply cycling the power on the printer.

The only work around to this is to use two catridges(2 color and 2 black and white). The reason is the printer has a mechanism to check if the same catridge is being used again. SO when you have two cartridges when one is finished refill the other and use and vice-versa. This way you will be able to refill and use for ever without any problems..

Lexmark Z845 printer pulls paper sidw ways


I had the same problem with lexmark z845. It is easy to solve this problem.Just do like the picture I post and you never get the paper pull to one side again. The problem is the rolling motor is too strong, so it pull the paper out out the tray in oneside. I use the mini cassette box, stick it with the super glue. And the printer works very well
