Ink levels on lexmark z1300


got screwed by lexmark and wallmart!! bought the z1300 printer...$30.00 wow what a deal!! Ya right! I would like to know if there is a generic driver or a way to reset the ink levels after refilling the (non refillable) $30.00 cartage so that i might help prevent the overfilling of our landfill with this piece of garbage.

Same thing happened to me i have a friend who works at lexmark and he said the ink cartriges are coded to only operate 1 time and to run out early. He also said that this version of the printer was a recall because of the fact you can't even get the lexmark refills to work, so don't be surprised when the 'fixed' one doesn't work either. The company is now trying to make money on selling ink rather then printers...so yea just remember, don't buy a lexmark they are only here to screw you.

I bought this same printer and after trying numerous things to refill the cartridges (which are detailed at fixyourownprinter.com), I have concluded that if you are using black cartridge #28 and/or color cartridge #29 you cannot refill because these are the "return program" cartridges. These specific cartridges cannot be refilled and technically any attempt to refill them is against Lexmark contract which you agreed to when you opened the sealed bag the cartridge came in.(Dont believe me? check the bag) I think the bag also said that there can be criminal charges filed against you if you refill these cartridges but I seriously doubt that lexmark would go after you since it has never happened before. My recommendation is to purchase the more expensive 34 and 35 high yield cartridges which I believe but cannot confirm will let you refill. What did you expect from lexmark? This printer is sold at a loss and do you really think that they would sell you a printer so darn cheap and not expect to make that money back somehow? These printers are usually picked up by cheapskates (such as myself) who have no intention to buy any more cartridges other then the initial one. Well ive learned the hard way that lexmark as well as other printer companies are now fighting back. If you want cheap ink I hear that KODAK is selling a printer that is a bit more expensive then the other brands but has very cheap cartridges. Oh and If you did buy the high yield cartridges then please reply so I can update the thread on fixyouownprinter.com and let everyone know.

Hope this helps makes things a bit more clear. Thanks for reading!

Hi Not sure witch windows you have so I put the XP and Vista just click on the one you need.

You can download a driver from my website then you can use the driver to set your printer up.
Just click on this link and it will download for you, and it is best to save it on your desktop so you can find it.

This is for the Lexmark-Z1300 XP and Vista.

Click Link = XP http://www.4all2sell.com/driver/Lexmark-Z1300-XP-32Bit.exe
Click Link = Vista http://www.4all2sell.com/driver/Lexmark-Z1300-Vista-32Bit.exe

Ones you have downloaded just double click on it to run it. And follow the intrusions.
You not need the serial number.

All I ask is please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

All The Best. Pineworks

Lexmark Z1300 will not recognize replacement ink cartridge.


Are you sure it's the correct one? Try another cartridge. Sometimes even new or especially remanufactured ones cause problems. Also make sure that the contacts on the cartridge and in the printer are clean and no debris is in the way.

Z1300 LEXCRAP


I bought this same printer at wal-mart and for the price, it's desposable. When the price of a printer with a color cartridge is about the same as the price of the ink cartridge itself, then I'm happy if I can make it through the ink before it stops working. Mine won't power on anymore, but I don't feel screwed by Lexmark or Wal-Mart, I GOT WHAT I PAID FOR. If you want a better printer you have to pay for it.
