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.
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.

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.
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...
Pros: Cheap to buy, simple to run and good quality printing
Cons: Expensive cartridges and full colour printing slow
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.
Excerpt: After years of using a laser printer, I finally decided that it was worth the "risk" buying a cheap, colour inkjet printer. After trawling through magazine recommendations, I eventually decided to buy the Lexmark Z42 from Argos. It cost me £89 (catalogue said £99, so pleasant surprise there).
Excerpt: The Lexmark Z42 is the older and sometimes referred to as the poor relative of other higher quality Lexmark inkjet printers. It is very fast even for the most complex documents. One of the best qulaities is the ink-use. It doesn't use as much as you'd think.
