Julie1665, Here are some things that could be causing your problem: -Could be the paper you are printing does not meet the printer specifications. -Could be toner leaking out of the cartridge. -Could be environmental issues, too hot or cold or humid. -The toner density could be set too high. -The electrical contacts that connect the toner cartridge to the printer could be dirty or just not making good contact. -the printer power supply could be defective. -With regards to your toner cartridge are you using new IBM cartridges or refilled/remanufactured? I?ve had many customers call me to fix a printer problem that turned out to be a bad cartridge. All of these are within the capabilities of the typical user except changing the power supply. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.

Pages are smudged and hard to read it looks like the cartridge is putting out too much toner

Smudging means that the "fuser" (which should be using heat to melt the toner into the paper) is not working, leaving the toner "loose" on the surface of the paper.

Take the printer to a qualified technician for repair.
Or, it might be cheaper to replace the printer!

My IBM Infoprint 1552 is leaving gray spikes at

Check your toner cartridge (most print quality problems are toner cartridge problems) if that is not the problem (and it probably is) then check the fuser for toner buildup matching the defect you have. There is also a small possibility of the laser being deflected and causing this (unlikely) but clean the small mirror above the toner cartridge (it is small in height and as long as the machine is wide and up in a cavity)

The copies come out with black spots and toner on the paper.

Black spots on the document usually is caused by either a leaking toner cartridge. A PC drum that is at end of life. Or as simple as spots on the document glass.

IBM Infoprint1120 and Lexmark T520 toner cartridges.

You cannot use Lexmark toner cartridges in IBM models and vice-versa because the toner carts have a smartchip that identifies the toner to the printer. IBM printers expect to see IBM toners and Lexmark machines expect to see Lexmark toners. If you put the wrong cartridge in you will get '32' Unsupported print cartridge error.
Some refillers may swap the smartchip when they refill cartridges and this would be the only reason why you may have seen it done before.. IS your current toner a refilled one? It's technically possible to make an IBM printer into a Lexmark printer to accept Lexmark toners by replacing the System Board... but why would you bother doing that...just use the right toner.

Info printer 1120 "202 paper jam error"

The 202 error can be indicated if the fuser exit sensor (on the far right when looking into the rear of the machine) actuator does not return to "at rest" position quickly enough. There is a small spiral tension spring that returns the actuator to the "at rest" position. If the hook on this spring has fallen off or was accidentally dislodged during an actual paper jam removal, the actuator will return to the "at rest" position, but sluggishly. It would be just slow enough for the printer timing to think there is paper stuck the at fuser exit, even though there isn't.
You also might want to try using some "canned air" and blowing out this sensor. There could be enough Toner/Paper dust to make it marginal.

Poor print quality

you need to replace the Drum otherwise known as the photoconductor I believe the part number is 75P5712 - your toner cartridge actually seats into the PC kit.

Printer stuck on Perfoming Self Test

If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.

IBM infoprint 1312 toner and error light.

If both Lights are solid, it means that the top cover is still open and the toner is low. Please make sure the top cover is closed all the way. If the toner light is blinking and the errror light is solid, it means there is a toner cartridge error. Please try a new cartridge. If that solves the issue, then you should return the damaged one.
