Question about Lexmark Color JetPrinter Z23 InkJet

Printer won't power up

My Lexmark Z23 printer has been stored in a closet for about a year. When I got it out this week, it will not work. I know it is receiving power because there is a red light behind the cartridges that is on. The light beside the power button does not come on. Is there any hope?

    No problem with the cover or latches that I can tell. Maybe something got knocked loose inside or something. I don't see any loose parts, but I don't know much about printer "guts" or what they should look like. At any rate, it would probably cost more to have someone look at it than it would just to buy another one.

Some..not much perhaps..there's no reason why leaving it in a box would make it not work. However, there are stranger things that happen. Make sure that all the covers are closed securely, as some have interlocks that make it not work, when not securely closed. Try opening and firmly closing(no slamming mind you) the top cover once or twice)...when you open it, make sure there is nothing(like bugs, for instance, from storage) interfering with the latches and seamless connection of the cover.

Got backup?

Can a lexmark Z23 printer go in to the hp/windows7?


Z23 printers only support up to Windows 2000 according to Lexmark.

Sometimes you can plug unsupported printers into Windows 7 and get limited functionality, but given the age of the Z23 series, you'll probably need to get a new printer for a Windows 7 machine.

Hope this was helpful. Please leave feedback. Thanks.

Be sure you have set your default printer when you were printing documents from internet.

Anyway are you saying that you print the whole page on the internet, and it's does not print anything?

Do you got error message?

Thanks,

My lexmark z23 printer keeps leaving blots of ink or marks all over the pages that it prints


You may need to clean the nozzles on your cartridges. Please follow the instructions in this article in the Lexmark website on How to Unblock (Clean) the Cartridge Nozzles in the Lexmark Z13/Z23/Z33 Color Jetprinter.If problem continues, try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge is faulty. Thanks.

Need drivers for lexmark z23 to install on vista


They don't make a Vista driver as it is an old printer but the XP driver might work, just ignore any messages saying it might be incompatible and install the diver, if it doesn't work, uninstall the driver and buy a new printer.

Here is a Vista driver link, try it no guarantees though.

I bought a new computer with Windows Vista and now i can't install my Lexmark Z23 printer. How can it get my printer to work?


According to the Lexmark customer support web site there are no Vista drivers for the Z23. It must be too old now to warrant writting drivers for it.

Paper sensor, I think


check the cable first..and do a test page, if you can without the printer connected to anything.

then, if that all works, we can look elsewhere, no?
