Question about Lexmark Z1300 InkJet Photo Printer
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!
