Summary: The front cover comes off with a couple screws and some plastic tabs. The rest of the cover comes off with a few more screws and tabs. Most of the rest is snapped together in various ways. There is one DC motor sliding the head back and forth and one stepper motor for the feed rollers. Both are easily removed but are nothing special. The logic board is highly integrated and contains little of use.
Summary: I purchased a used Lexmark Z42 printer. I wanted the same printer that I purchased with my computer many years ago. I knew if I could find the same printer it would be easier for me to install. Plus I had purchased ink carridges before my printer stopped failed.
Summary: If you're looking for a dependable hardworking simple printer at a fair/reasonable price, this is it. Nothing fancy about it but print quality is excellent. It's quite and a great backup or second printer on an ucb. Ink cartages are reasonable price. As a Realtor, I used this one as secondary printer when I doing major long printouts on my office-jet.

The on off does exactly that, and the test sends a peice of paper through the printer. The printer wil hold around ...
Pros: fast reliable printer
Cons: can print slightly bent, pages may be fed out too fast
Excerpt: "...you! But its not the lexmark Z42, unfortunately. works great with Windows environs, but not for long. the ink cartridges are expensive and leak, they dont completely empty before jamming, and customer assistance is almost fraudulent in their advice! We really wanted this printer to work out, too. but it hasnt. Dont buy one, even used. We bought new, and wish we'd paid more and bought the Canon, frankly. We attempted many times to resolve ...
Excerpt: The Lexmark I bought wasn’t from choice. I had it in my package with Tiny. But, when I heard it was Lexmark we’d had with the computer, I was thrilled and couldn’t be more ecstatic! I had heard of Lexmark, and I knew it was one of the best around. I’d never used it, but I was almost certain it would be good, and provide me with clear and sharp prints off my work. And that’s what it did for almost 2 years.

Excerpt: "I've been a fan of Lexmark since I originally bought their 1020 Inkjet printer as a cheap way to buy a printer that is a fraction of costs of it's competitors. When I finally decided my 1020 was past its sell-buy date I had a look at some of the opposition Hewlet Packard, Cannon, Epsom and of course Lexmark. At the time Cannon and Epsom had some interesting deals and so I test drove two printers at a similar price and returned them. Hmm. I saw the ...
Pros: Cheap to buy, simple to run and good quality printing
Cons: Expensive cartridges and full colour printing slow
Excerpt: The Z42 is one of the latest Lexmark printers to arrive. and is perhaps the cheapest model in its range. In the past these printers have struggled to match the quality of other such as HP, Epson or Cannon's. it is a great little printer for this amount of money. It is a pound under £100. Traditionally though, Lexmark printers have struggled to match the printing quality of other like Epson and HP and the Z42 is no exception.
Excerpt: I got this printer from an insurance claim after nagging my insurance company, and was treated to a "better" printer than I should have got as a result (I should have got a measly Z12). Blimey was I impressed. I'm a student, and am used to "making do" with manky University printers, and my old one which was pretty naff compared to this one....not to mention the 100 year old one we've got at home...this printer is a dream.
