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.

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

I want to test printer with no conection to the PC only test page. What buttons Can I press for to print test page directly of printer?


Hi, you can't print a test page directly from the printer, but since it's a copier also, you can copy a page of text or graphics to make sure everything prints okay. Just place a piece of paper on the glass and press either the black or color copy button. (The computer must be on to make a copy.)

No booklet came with my lexmark 2600 series


For color copies, you press the function key with two pieces of paper and color dots on it. For black and white copies, you press the function key with two pieces of paper and black dots on it. The link below is to the user's guide for your printer. Page 17 shows a diagram of the function keys, also, page 39 provides steps for making copies.

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 :)

Lexmark X5100 printer. I copied a small item 3x3 and doubled its size. Now when I try to copy a full page only one small corner is reproduced. It appears I lost a default setting. How do I get a full page...


If you are using your All-In-One without it being attached to a computer and scanning a document that is getting cut off on the edges:
1 Move the document to a different place on the glass.
2 On the operator panel, press the Reduce/Enlarge button
repeatedly until Fit to Page appears.
3 Press Select.

If you are using your All-In-One attached to a computer:
1 Move the document to a different place on the glass.
2 From the software, select a copy setting with autocrop on (Color Photo or Black and White Photo) to make sure that autocrop finds the object and prints it completely.

1 From your desktop, double-click the Lexmark X5100 Series
All-In-One Center
icon. The All-In-One Main Page appears.
2 Click Preview Now to see your scanned image.
3 Select a quantity and color for your copies.
Note: To choose a paper size or further customize your copy
job, click See More Copy Settings.
4 Click Copy Now.

Note: When autocrop is on, the object (wherever it is placed
on the glass) will be printed in the upper left corner of the
page. This might make your copy look different from the
original.

try the above and post back so I know if your issue is fixed or you need more assistance

Printer problem


Does the line appear while copying or printing ?

To isolate the issue try to print a self test page :

1. Press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Copy Color button.

2. Release both buttons. The self-test page prints.

If you see lines on the test page then the issue is with the cartridge or cartridge contacts. Clean the cartridge and cartridge contacts inside the printer.

rRemove both the cartridges. Using a clean, dry lint-free cloth (a coffee filter works well), wipe the cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom. The contact area of the cartridge should be rubbed briskly to remove the waxy lubricant material from the gold contacts.
The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning. Using a clean, dry, lint-free cloth. Gently wipe the contacts, from the top to the bottom.
Reinsert the cartridge and print. If the issue issue persists replace cartridge(s).



If you do not see lines on the test page. Place the same test page on the scanner glass and make a color copy. If the lines are on the copied Image the issue is with the scanner glass.
clean the scanner glass :

Clean the glass and scanner backing
  1. Turn off the all-in-one.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the back of the all-in-one.
  4. Raise the lid.
  5. Clean the glass with a soft dry cloth, or a sponge slightly moistened with non-abrasive glass cleaner or water. CAUTION: Do not use abrasives, acetone, benzene, or carbon tetrachloride on the glass; they can damage it. Do not place or spray liquid directly on the glass; the liquid might seep under the glass and damage the device.
  6. Dry the glass with a chamois, cellulose sponge or soft cotton cloth to prevent spotting.
  7. Clean the white scanner backing with a soft dry cloth or sponge slightly moistened with water, and allow it to dry.
Try a blank copy
  1. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  2. Plug the power cord into the all-in-one.
  3. Turn the power on.
  4. Close the lid; do not place any paper on the glass.
  5. Load paper in the paper tray.
  6. Do either of the following:
    • Press Start Copy Black to start a black-and-white copy job.
    • Press Start Copy Color to start a color copy job.
  7. If the output is a full/half-black page, or has vertical black lines, the product needs service or contact HP for in warranty replacement.
Thank you .
