  • The printer I've got is a Lexmark S400. What are the cartridge numbers for the black and colour ink cartridges that fit this printer?

    Lexmark S400 series ink cartridges

    I'm unable to find a Lexmark printer with the model S400. The Interpret S400 is the name of a series that contains the Lexmark Interpret S405 printer. Your printer model is usually written on the printer itself. The manual which came with your printer can sometimes contain operating instructions for the whole S400 series.

    If your printer was purchased in the UK it's likely that the model name is 'Lexmark Interpret S405' which uses the cartridges listed above (Lexmark 100 / 100XL's). However, we recommend that you check and confirm your exact printer model name or number before ordering any cartridges.

  • My Lexmark Interpret S405 series printer is not even six months old and the ink has run dry. Do I need to purchase the black and the three other colours for it to work or can I buy black only and leave the other cartridges in as I mainly print in black only?

    Replacing Lexmark S405 ink cartridges

    This will depend on your printer and whether or not the colour cartridges have any remaining ink. Most inkjet printers do require that all four cartridges are installed and contain at least some remaining ink in order to print, even if you're only printing in black. On other printers you can change the settings so that you're printing in black only and the other cartridges are not required by the printer. Please consult your printer manual or Lexmark directly to find out if this is possible with the Lexmark Interpret S405 as we cannot provide technical support for each individual printer model.

  • Are the sets of three for the Lexmark Interpret S405 printer actually made by Lexmark or are they compatibles?

    Set of three cartridges for S405

    We sell genuine Lexmark S405 ink cartridges as well as premium brand compatibles. The genuine sets of 3 Lexmark S405 ink cartridges are pictured in official Lexmark boxes and have the Lexmark logo underneath the words 'Genuine Lexmark'. In contrast, the compatible set of 3 Lexmark S405 ink cartridges are advertised as 'Premium brand recycled ink cartridges' and just the cartridges are pictured.

  • Is the Lexmark 105XL ink cartridge compatible with the Lexmark S405 printer?

    Cartridge compatibility for Interpret S405

    No, the Lexmark 105XL cartridge is not compatible with the Interpret S405 printer. The cartridges that we recommend for the Lexmark Interpret S405 are the Lexmark 100 or 100XL cartridges as listed above.

  • It says ' return' or 'hIgh yield' on some cartridges. Could you explain the differences for me please as well as advising me which are the best ones to use? Thanks.

    Lexmark S405 ink cartridges explained

    Return program cartridges are brand new Lexmark cartridges which are sold at a discounted price in exchange for the user agreement to return the cartridge to the manufacturer once it's been used. The only difference between regular Lexmark and return program cartridges is that you must agree to return your empty cartridge after use to Lexmark so that it can be recycled.

    High yield cartridges contain more ink so are more cost effective in the long run. If you use your printer on a regular basis then you might be best purchasing the high capacity return program ink cartridges as they will give you the biggest savings.

  • I'm currently using Lexmark 100 type cartridges in my Lexmark Interpret S405 printer. Can I start using 100XL types as replacements?

    Cartridges for Interpret S405

    Yes, you can use either the Lexmark 100 standard capacity ink cartridges or the Lexmark 100XL high capacity ink cartridges for the Interpret S405 printer. The only difference is that Lexmark 100XL inks will print more pages and will usually offer you better value for money if you print quite regularly.

  • I've had non-Lexmark refill cartridges before that were supposed to be compatible with my Lexmark S405 printer but the printer didn't recognise them. Will it recognise yours?

    Will compatible Lexmark S405 cartridges be recognised?

    Yes, you shouldn't have any problems with our premium brand Lexmark Interpret S405 ink cartridges. They've been fully chipped and are ready for installation directly into your S405 printer. We have a very strong returns policy to match our confidence in our products. We offer a 30 day guarantee on compatible Lexmark S405 ink cartridges so unless they work reliably for you, you can cliam your money back. All our compatible cartridges are tried and tested before being made available to our customers.

  • Can you confirm which cartridges will be accepted by the Lexmark S405 printer? I've had cartridges refused as 'not recognised' in the past.

    Ink cartridges for Lexmark S405

    All of the ink cartridges listed on this page are compatible with the Lexmark Interpret S405 all-in-one printer. 'Cartridge not recognised' errors are occasionally generated by a compatible (non-Lexmark) cartridge. However, if you ever get this error when using one of our compatible Lexmark S405 inkjet cartridges we'll offer you troubleshooting support. Simply contact one of our telephone support advisors and we'll help you get the cartridge working or ensure that you get a full refund if the cartridge error isn't resolved. We have a 100% money back guarantee on both genuine and compatible Lexmark S405 printer cartridges so if they don't work reliably in your printer you can claim a full refund.

  • Hi, are the Lexmark 100XLA ink cartridges refillable? If yes, how many times can I refill them? Thanks.

    Refilling Lexmark S405 ink cartridges

    Unfortunately, we don't stock a refill kit that will allow you to correctly refill the Lexmark 100XLA ink cartridges for the Lexmark Interpret S405 printer so we wouldn't be able to advise you on how to do this. However, we do stock compatible Lexmark 100XL ink cartridges which have already been professionally refilled and act as a cheaper alternative to the genuine Lexmark ink cartridges.

Lexmark Interpret S405 Printer Review

Expert review of the Lexmark Interpret S405 printer

Our Verdict:

The Lexmark Interpret S405 inkjet printer is aimed at home and small office users. And for a budget all-in-one, it does a fairly decent job. Pushing more towards the home market as opposed to the corporate setting of an office, the S405 has a built in scanner, copier and fax machine. Not only this but Lexmark have installed Wi-Fi for ultimate flexibility.


The Interpret S405 is fairly bulky but this is mainly down to the 35 sheet Automatic Document Feeder which sits on top. The S405 comes with a decent paper feed system which makes a refreshing change from some of the lower end printers. The control panel which runs along the centre of the printer allows the user to fax, scan, copy and print directly. The inkjet also comes with a memory card reader that accepts SD, xD and Memory Stick formats and USB/PictBridge support. Lexmark spoils the user for choices when it comes to connecting up your computer – choose from USB, Wi-Fi or even Ethernet for super print speeds.


Lexmark have crammed this printer full of functions, all of which you will struggle to find unless you opt for a pricier, high-end device. The option of being able to use the printer on a network is perfect for small offices and households with more than one computer. Fax functionality is another huge plus and will be hard to find on other budget all-in-ones. Print quality is also pretty impressive with text and graphic documents looking crisp and vibrant.


What really lets the Lexmark Interpret S405 inkjet printer down is the speed at which it runs. Lexmark openly admit they run the same print engine across the entire range, resulting in the same technology being installed in the S405 as the budget S305 – the end result is an all-in-one device that's not only slow to print but scans and copies at a snail's pace too. This alone will cause problems in a small office setting where print volumes are high which is why, despite its business functionality, the S405 is best suited as a home or home office printer.
