The warning is for the photo conductor units, these are the four units that sit on the transfer belt. If you open the front cover you will see these units sitting on the inside of it when you pull it down. Normally when this message display, not long afterwards the print quality will start to suffer. From experience it's best to replace all four units together, because when one goes the rest seem to follow suit!

What ink do I buy for the Pro205?


The Lexmark Prospect Pro205 printer uses the 100 standard cartridges (black, cyan, magenta and yellow) which offers around 170 ISO Pages; and the 100XL high yield cartridges (black, cyan, magenta and yellow). These have a higher sticker price, but contain almost 3 times as much ink as their standard yield cousins. Please click on the link for the compatible cartridges for your printer: http://bit.ly/lcgWB1
I hope this helps.

The magenta cartridge isn't working correctly. This is why you're only getting the other colors (blue is cyan, green is cyan and yellow, and then yellow).

Try removing and reseating the magenta cartridge. If that doesn't work, use a new magenta cartridge (the cartridge itself may have been defective).

I wasn't able to view a manual for this machine, as it's been discontinued and Lexmark no longer offers the PDF on it. If you have a "clean print heads" option, use it. It may require more than one try. If you don't have that option, then all possibilities have been covered.

Hope that's helpful.

Hi armaskopljak:
You have replaced the toner cartridge but you still have to replace the imaging unit which is the drom that the toner cartridge attaches to.
Toner Cartridge OK, Low, Empty When 15,000
(high-capacity cartridge) or
7,500 (standard-capacity
cartridge) pages are
printed (5% print density).
Imaging Units At/Near end-of-life When 30,000 pages are
printed out or when the
pixel counts are
exceeded.
A fuse in the new
imaging unit will blow
upon installation,
resetting the counter.
Verify color calibration. Clean lenses.
