    When I go to maintence in the solution center and choose "install a catridge" it walks me through physically installing it and then asks me to print a test page, but then when I press print it says "Black Cartridge Replacement Required" "Please install a new Lexmark cartridge or oreder a new cartridge from Lexmark." "Follow these steps to replace the black cartride in your printer 1. Cancel printing. 2 Replace the black ink cartridge. 3. Resend the print job. A variable amount of ink will remain in the cartridge. You may use the Complete-A-Print option to print using only the color cartride" If I check "Complete-A-Print" it will print but without using the black cartridge. I have uninstalled and re-installed the printer twice and clean the cartride multiple times. Do I need a reset tool? Is there someway to make this printer see this cartridge as a new one?

    Sorry Mr. Mechanic688, but there is no "reset" or cartridge maintenance tab on the driver and software that comes with the Z1420. I have spoken to Lexmark Tech Support and they have acknowledged NO REFILL kit will work with this printer nor for that matter any cartridge that is not a Genuine Lexmark cartridge. We who got sucked in to buying this cheap wireless printer are stuck paying exhorbinantely high ink cartridge prices with very little ink in them! Bummer! Last Lexmark I will buy!

On my lexmarks, the cartridge resets are on the Lexmark tab in the programs menu after hitting the start button. They are in with the cartridge maintenance tab. This all comes from the software download. I hope this helps you,, Mechanic

SOURCE: missing cartridge for the lexmark z1420

Try resetting the ink settings on the printer's program. I use compatable cartidges all the time in my lexmark no problems, as long as i always rest the ink before i start a new one. Try a good clean too. Why are you contacting hp site if your printer is a lexmark. You need the lexmark site. I thought your printer issue is with a lexmark z1420

SOURCE: ''incorrect'' cartridge in lexmark z1420, but its the right one!

did u change / replace the cartridge with original spare or refilled it??
this kind of problem often follows with an unbranded cartridge change and or refilling..!!
it also can be the defective cartridge itself causing such problem..!!
well if u r a professional then just dip a cotton into isopropyl alcohol n gently rub the connector sensor/ contact surface, n reinsert it properly, gently rub on the head too n make sure ink is coming/flowing, make sure the toner is not jammed or dried up, also have a glance on the 'carriage' n see that no sensor pins are broken and or bend..!!
..if u r not an professional, make sure it is properly inserted and the ink-spill protective/head covering is removed and call ur system admin....
if all the above fails, then it may b a defective cartridge..!!

My printers color won't work, I just filled it with 4.5 ml of each color. the black is also really patchy. I want my lexmark z1420 to just work!!! Help!!!


It could be due to the refilled cartridge in your printer. Refilled cartridges tend to degrade print quality and in performance. Try to replace your cartridges with genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Your printer may need to be reset. Disconnect your printer from your computer. Unload the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. While the cover is open, check for any paper jams or obstructions in the paper path and the cartridge carrier's path. If all is clear, close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover. Check for any errors. If no error, reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You can also try to reinsert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
For your wireless connection problem, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network settings first. Please refer to How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings.
To reconnect the printer to your wireless network, re-launch Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer.

How do i trick my lexmark z1420 refilled catridge to work?


Most lexmark cartridges need a special refill cartridge, I sure hope you did not use one that says recycle on it if so that will not work ever. You need to puchase a compatable refillable cartridge, there is no tricking it to work if you had this cartridge.

Keeep in mind refilled cartriges can damage the system long term so keep that in mind.

The cartridges may not be seated properly in the carrier or just needs cleaning. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover of the printer. Unplug the printer from the power source and leave it unplug for now. Here's a link to the Lexmark website to guide you on how to manually clean the nozzles of the cartridges. http://bit.ly/9ZpYd1 . On the page, there are also other instructions on how to maintain the cartridges using the Lexmark software but that's applicable once you have resolved the alignment problem. Plug the printer back to the power source. Once printer's ready, re-insert the cartridges.

Low ink


Wow, nice "solution," Printech. That is BS. There has to be a way to trick this printer into using refilled ink. If not, why would they sell refilled ink kits for this printer? Cut the **** and give us a SOLUTION. I refuse to pay $30 for a "certified Lexmark" cartridge when I can spend $15 for a refilled one.
