Question about Lexmark E232 Laser Printer

Printing missing column

When I print- everything prints normal except there is a column or strip on the left hand side that doesn't print. any document I print whether it is text or images nothing appears in this one inch column. It says my toner is fine. And I tried replacing it- didn't work. (Did all the trouble shooting and researching as possible) Any ideas? Thanks so much Leigh

Re: Printing missing column

This could be several things-here is a list in order of probability... 1. transfer roller dirty, especially if inside of printer looks like it needs a cleaning. You could vacuum with toner vacuum or take it in for service. 2. scanner mirrors dirty. would need to be serviced by a technician. 3. scanner toner shield out of position-tech needed. 4. toner cartridge (even though its new) needs to be shaken horizontally-toner could be all on one side of hopper. Thanks and good luck...

Everything is working just fine except the margin on the right and left side is missing some of the printing, like its printing something to wide????

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Sir, If there is a problem of margin in printing and except it everything is working fine then this not seems to be the problem of printer, its the issue of the file format, You have to check the settings of the programs which you are using for files printing like if you are using Microsoft Word and you have to print the document of Microsoft Word the check the Margin Settings of Microsoft Word,By Decreasing the width of the file you can bring it in correct format and then printer will not miss the left and right margin.

I hope this solution helps you and you have clear picture in your mind now
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.

Sir, Your Rating as FIVE Stars for this solution and words of appreciation will be esteemed
Thank You for taking my service

My epson stylus tx110 is noisy and does not print right. i think the rollers are busted.. some words are split in half..

Eventually all inkjet printers have this problem. When the printer is doing its thing (printing) there is a small amount of vaporised ink floating around the inside of the unit. This vapor collects on everything inside of the printing chamber, including the sensor strip the printer uses for tracking the print heads location. Luckily it's an easy fix, just clean the sensor strip.
To do this, get yourself some rubber gloves (unless you don't mind having Technicolor hands that is) and some lint free paper towels. Put the gloves on, then wet half a sheet of paper towel so its wet, but NOT dripping wet. open the printer and allow the ink heads to travel to middle. When they reach the middle, unplug the machine so the head stays unlocked and out of home position (where the print head goes when not printing). With the printer unplugged and the print head unlocked, locate the thin semi transparent strip running from one side of the printer to the other, it sorta floats there in mid air as its supported on either side by small metal tabs. Starting at the print head home position , gently, clean this strip with the wet paper towel, making sure not to apply too much pressure as you can pull the strip off the hanger tabs or erase the small lines printed onto on the strip. Once the home position section of the strip is cleaned, dry it off and slide the print head into it's home position and clean and dry the rest of the strip. When done, plug in and power up the unit, then do a test print to ensure the problem is fixed.
Hope this helps.

Incomplete Printing

It depends on the page you are trying to print. Some pages do not like printing everything on the page. What I have done is printed to PDF (with images) and then printed the PDF. You can find free PDF printers here:

Left side margin is fading out right side margin is printing correctly

First try to align the printer head either with software or at the printer control panel. If that one couldn't solve the problem then you may have the encoder strip dirty at left side. It is not easy to access the encoder strip, sent it to workshop.

Some net printouts need to be printed in Lanscape mode. For example I just selected Print Preview on this page and some of the right side is missing. You can use page setup to select landscape.

Hope that helps...
