Question about Lexmark Z42 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Prinet lexmark z42

This printer is still on its original ink cartridges as it is used only occasionally. i put it on yesterday to use it and there was a burning smell coming from it but there is no power light on even though there is power going to it. obviously something electrical has malfunctioned in the printer even though it has had very little use. is this a known fault and if so is it repairable with a new part?

If there is less than a year you have the printer, hurry to warranty repair because it seams something's wrong at the power part.
Fact is you can not replace the transformer or other such parts in the printer.

I am unable to find color ink for my lexmark x6170. Additionally, are all the inks the same (quality)?


Lexmark X6170 uses these two ink cartridges: -
Black Print Cartridge (18L0032E)
Colour Print Cartridge (18LX042E)
It is highly recommended that you use the original cartridges as the cartridges and ink vary from printer to printer.
However, if you are unable to find the cartridges, you may look for refilling option.

Can't change Lexmark Z42 ink cartridge


You can unplug the printer from the power source. With the printer off, open the cover where the cartridge carrier is. Hold the solid white tape found in the middle inside the printer. Slowly drag the cartridge carrier to the center. Replace the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug printer back to the power source. Hope this helps.

I've refilled my black ink cartridge #36 and put it into my Lexmark 5650. My computer will not let me print - not even to "complete a page" print. It says that I need more ink. I have windows vistas. What...


Lexmark 36 and 37 cartridges cannot be refilled. When your ink levels drop below a certain point your printer deactivates the electronics on your cartridge so you cannot refill them. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling shop and I sell Lexmark originals for the 36 and 37 because of this reason. Unfortunately you purchased a machine that you have to buy expensive original ink for. You need to buy Lexmark original 36 and 37 to get your printer to work. As a refiller I never recommend someone buy a Lexmark printer if they ever want to use refills.

Lexmark Z705 printer. I put in new ink cartridges


The BEST slution is GENUINE original cartridges. There is an eclectronic communicator on the cartridges and that "TELLS" the printer thet the current cartridges are not GENUINE ones. Untill you have replaced these cartridges with the GENUINE ones you will always get these error messages

Lexmark 6570 "out of ink error message"


I have a Lexmark printer too, and after my original Lexmark ran out of ink, I bought some off of eBay (off brand, not original Lexmark ink), and I get the message I am not using original Lexmark ink, and it is not covered by warranty.  There is no way to remove this message, unfortunately.

I bought re-inked cartridge for Lexmark It didn't work


Yes, Lexmark has been making their new printers smarter to reject refilled cartridges. Most likely what is happening is your printer is turning off the electronics on the cartridge when it gets empty so you can't reuse that cartridge. I own a Cartridge World printer cartridge refilling store and I've even had customers return original Lexmark cartridges because their printers have rejected them. If you want to be able to refill your cartridges never buy a Lexmark printer. HP printers that use integrated print head cartridges can be refilled nicely.
