Question about Lexmark X4530 InkJet Printer

Open Question

Lexmark X4530m adding extra color lines when copying in color.

When making a copy of a color or black page using the black button option the copy is OK. However when the same page is copied using the color copy button it adds two or three colored lines about 1/8inch wide horizonally the full width of the page. These lines vary in color from gray to the full spectrum. It also appears that if it is a photo being copied then the line color in the photo is a shift in the colors in the photo toward the right.
I can hear the process halt just prior to the errant printing then speed up as it lays down the extra lines, prior to going back to the correct printing.

SOURCE: White vertical lines in copy

I would put the old cartridge back in if you can and do a test scan, the cartdridge you put in may be at fault, the trick is to duplicate the problem and solution, if nothing else take the new cartridge back and get another.

SOURCE: Can the copy setting be defaulted to black and white document?

You can set it to B+W but it will revert to its default setting the next time you print.

Clean all glass with 70% isopropal alcohol on the scanner. If the line is perfectly straight and crisp. There a spec on the glass probally causing the line.

SOURCE: Put new black and color cartridges, will not print

Maybe the printer need to clean a slot for a catridge. Because that printer stuck with old tint in the head for a printer therefore it need clean the heads.

Copy on HP Laserjet 200 Color MFP


If you just want a single copy of the document, place the page face down on the scanner glass or face up in the document feeder. Then press Copy on the all-in-one (for the M276 this is on the touch screen). If you need to adjust the image quality/size or paper size, press Settings. Then press Image Adjust or scroll down and touch Paper. When done adjusting any setting, press OK. Then press Black or Color depending on your source page.

If you want to scan to a computer first, you'll need to make sure that the full software is installed on that computer. Then launch a scan from the computer before using the touch screen's scan button. You need to set up the default scan options before the scan button works. (There is a monitor program "hears" the button and it needs to know the scan defaults and destinations to launch the appropriate parts of the software.)

Note: many all-ones will not work if there is a problem with the print system.

I hope this helps.

How do you enlarge on the HP309A SERIES


  1. Use the following guidelines to determine which setting to choose:
    • Copying an original to letter or A4 paper : Choose Fit to Page , or choose Full Page 91% to prevent unwanted cropping.
    • Copying a legal-size document to letter paper : Choose Legal > Ltr 72% .
    • Copying a photo to full-size paper : Choose Fill Entire Page .
    • Copying to a custom size : Choose Custom 100% , use the Up or Down arrow buttons (c01314741.gif ) to reduce or enlarge the size of the copy, and then press OK .
  2. On the LCD screen, choose Copy from the options (use the arrow buttons) and press OK .
  3. Press the Settings button (the button below the Home button) twice, to access the Copy Settings menu.

Installed a new HP black ink cartridge; the officejet 8500 pro will not print any black print. The color ink works okay.


First print a self test page on the printer and check if you have black print on it or not.

To do that Go to your printer :-

Press Setup button -->Go to print report-->hit ok--> use arrow keys and choose the self test page.--> hit ok.

If you have the self test page fine then try to make a black copy from the printer.

Put a black font printout on the scanner glass facing downwards. Press copy black

Check if you have the black ink working.

If yess then there is some thing on the system you are doing wrong. May be the printer properties needs to be set or some settings needs to be checked.

If no then try to clean he ink cartridge and try to align the cartridge on the printer.

To align Do this

Press setup-->use arror keys to navigate to tools -->and choose the option align cartridge or align printer.

If you do not find the option in the tools option try looking for it in the print report...

On the computer Go to printer under control panel and right click on the printer and go to print prefernces --> go to the TAB called colors and under color options -->choose print in greyscale--> and under that choose the Black only option. --> hit apply and then hit ok.

Now try printing..!

Let me know if any of these steps works....

Unable to cop


You can not use the copy feature if your printer is "printing". You can scan while other is printing simply because scanning is not using the printer's print heads. Therefore if you are printing, you can not copy at the same time.

Is your printer printing OK? So you should be able to copy as well. Press COPY button when the printer is ready. Basically, you have the Copy (Black) and Copy Color options. If you have 1 option only, pressing COPY makes you choose black or COlor using the keypad selector. Just choose any option and press OK or START.

Copies made are totally black. what do i do? i changed cartridged, put in new paper then copied. it copied fine after 20pages, copy sounded like it was jamming up, paper came out with some parts black....


Hello limay_uera

Please check your Printer setup. or options ( I am not familiar with this printer. what terms they use- I'm not sure) Ther will be options for Print in Color or Black. Make sure the radio button for COLOR is checked. This way, black and color both will print in the correct color. So leave it on color even when you want to print in Black. The black radio button is there for a different reason.
Hope this will help you.

How do I set my 5550n printer to print only black and white copies and color on demand?


If you go into control panel then go printer options you should see your printer icon. Right click on it and go printer preferences or printer properties and I think there is a colour tab where you can set it to just back and white

I just got a hp photosmart c4480 printer and it makes black and white copies, but I can't figure out how to print in black and white like when I am on a web site.


OK, Whe you select Print from the File Menu and the Print window opens, selct the Color tab.

There should be an option to Print in Grayscale. Check the box beside it and click OK at the bottom. Then back at the Print window, click Print.

(Note: If this option is not on the Color tab, or you do not have a color tab, look on the Advanced tab for the same thing.)

Need additional help...use the Comment link.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Copies


Hey :), I'd be happy to help. To make a copy you must lift the lid and lay down the item you want copied. And then on the side of the printer you will see a line of buttons , to copy the item you want,you have to let the printer know if you want the copy to be in black and white or color .To let the printer know of you want the copy to be in black and white or color, you have to select/press between the black ( black and white ) button in the line of buttons or the color button. Once you press wither of these buttons/options , the printer will automatically start the coping process. thanks! I hope this helps :)
