What is the difference between the Lexmark 100 and the 100A Printer Cartridge for the Lexmark pro 705? Is it just the number of pages they will print or is the 100A able to be refilled?

    Is the 100A available in Australia? I have not seen it yet.

Hello,
The regular version (#100) is not refillable. It is the "Return Program" or "Prebate" cartridge. Supposedly, when you buy this cartridge you agree to return the empty cartridge to Lexmark. In return, Lexmark gives you roughly $5 off the retail list price of the cartridge.
The "A" version (#100A) can easily be refilled. However, the price of the cartridge is roughly $5 higher than the regular version, so most people unknowingly buy the regular version. So it's really depends on you if you want to refill your cartridge you should buy 100A
Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Is it true that both my new Lexmark Prevail Pro 705 print heads quit printing in color is because I didn't use Lexmark OEM ink cartridges?


Some Lexmark cartridges have an RF chip mounted underneath the label on top. Most of these are set to self destruct on first use to prevent refilling. You probably need to risk the cost of a new cartridge to find out if it is a cartridge problem or a printer problem. Unfortunately you should not take out a cartridge or replace one while the machine is powered. The system also frequently registers an serial number on the cartridge and stores it to prevent "hot swapping" cartridges

Printer has stopped printing blue


Make sure that you are inserting only genuine Lexmark cartridges in your printer. Removing then re-inserting the color cartridge into the printer is a quick to minor cartridge communication issues.
Make sure that your color cartridge still has substantial ink level for printing using the Lexmark Solution Center software on your computer.
Click Start > Programs > Lexmark X74-X75 > Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center. Check the ink levels.
If color ink level is still good, then it probably just needs some cleaning. Print quality issues can be due to dirty or clogged print cartridge nozzles. From the Maintenance tab in the Lexmark X74-X75 Solution Center, click Clean print nozzles to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a test page. Try to print a color page again to verify that the problem with the blue color is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to insert a different known working color cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.
