Question about Lexmark Color Z45 InkJet
My Lexmark Z45 printer won't print. The paper feeds, and I can see the cartridge moving back and forth. The paper sits there for a couple of minutes, then the paper is fed forward a little more, protruding from the printer, but not released from the machine. I see a line of type at the very top of the page that looks like alot of strikeover print.
I am the same user as the guest above, I just found a solution. I took mine apart. I found that (when looking at the unit from the front with the cover off with the gears on the left) the 3rd gear from the bottom left had a crack in it. It was the gear that turns the 4 large round rubber cylinders from underneath the paper. Anyway, I kept turning on/off until the crack was on top and then I dropped a drop of Super Glue (red cap version for use on Rubber/Plastic/etc.). I put a little pressure on it using 2 thin screwdrivers in the gear teath to compress it but in looking back I don't think that was necessary. I think the crack in the gear was causing mine to slip so just making it solid again helped enough to make one work like normal again. I'll see how long this holds up. Good Luck. Scott.
