Question about Lexmark Color Z45 InkJet

Color Cartridge Has Stopped Working...Lexmark Z45 Printer

The cartridge was 3/4 full according to the last message/check. It would show as being present in the machine,then would NOT. Sometimes resetting the power would jog it to print,but only for a few minutes.I bought a new Lexmark 20 cartridge and installed it yesterday,but it does the same thing. I now get a message that won`t clear off...."no color cartridge installed" I can now only print using the black. I also cleaned all the contacts in the cartridge socket and downloaded a fresh driver install from the Lexmark website. NO CHANGE. What is causing this?!

    All contacts have been cleaned with alcohol and q-tips. I suspect an electronic type of thing,rather than a cleaning issue.

    Try taking a paper towel or Qtip and wiping the CARTRIDGE it self at the copper leads on the bottom with a little alcohol if perhaps it hasn't been used often they will get a little dry and not make contact

Hi Sobek70,

Please check if the cartridge is not dried out.

It will get dried out if you have not used that cartridge for certain period of time.

Color ink cartridge


Well due to some problem in cartridge you would be facing this problem.however you can do try this.

Please clean your cartridge once again with some spirit.

Fix it well in the printer afterward.

Than use normal paper and print in color.

If than also it does not work that means the bar-code of the cartridge has problem in it so the printer is unable to read that code, so for that you need to change the whole cartridge.

Or if your printer had valid in warranty period and it still in that period just give it to a service center.

If you still had any confusion regarding the same problem or nay other please do reply.

Naiven.

Changed color cartridge and getting error


I had the same problem with my X8300 printer. As the printer was less than a year old Lexmark sent me a new printer. I will keep this printer until it to goes wrong and then buy another brand. Lexmark - cheap and nasty, I am afraid.
