    I've got the same problem. Rollers aren't completely smooth. This problem happened after I used canned air to clean it out.

Hi Melissa:
I think that you problem is feed rollers. If you take the paper tray out and look inside you will see two white rubber paper feed rollers. If you feel them and they are smooth,then they need to be replaced. They should feel ruff.

You might need to really take a close look there might be a small piece of paper that is making the sensor read a paper jam. If the jam has been cleared but still reads jammed you might want to shut the printer off and completely unplug it for about 5 minutes. Plug it back in and see if that helped...

My T520 Lexmark prints a first page that reads @PJL SET LIMAGEENHANCE = OFF, why? and how do I stop it?


I had the same problem and I fixed it this way. I uninstalled the printer driver then I went to the Lexmark site and under 'Drivers" I typed in t520 driver xp. There are a couple of them, pick the mpmoinxe.exe one it comes with an install. When you get to the choice of a t520 or a t520sbe pick the t520. The install will guide you through. When I got done the problem disapeared. I hope it works for you too.

Lexmark t520 suddenly prints poor quality, i.e. the previous page prints softly onto the next page and the right side of the page (2" from right) is streaked with toner. Please help. TIA, Mike


this sounds like you have a fuser problem look at the fuser and see if it has toner build up on the rollers ghost printing can be caused by the toner cartridge or the fuser. this would indicate that your fuser isnt maintaining enough heat for complete fusing. is you take the rear covers off and run your print job. look to the far left side of the fuser and you will see the heat lamp lit up. this light should cycle on every 1 1/2 pages or so. any longer than that and it wont keep up with the print job

The screen reads remove paper standard bin. We


if your getting a standard bin error this is caused by the flag on the top of the printer where the paper comes out or the sensor that it triggers. look to the far left where the paper comes out you'll see the flag make sure it moves freely if it does replace the sensor

Re: Paper Jam


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

T520 Printer - slew of issues.


Replace the fuser. These are the same as a Dell 5200 printer, and a fairly common problem.

This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.
