Re: Printing Problem

If you have have followed the directions for cleaning the printhead (blue lever on right side of printer - move wand in and out completely several times) then it sounds as if your drum unit (photoconductor unit) has developed a problem and should be replaced. PLEASE let me know if this solved your problem or you need additional assistance before rating this solution. Thanks Ed

How to fix text from printing unevenly as if the roller was not rolling consistently?

Sorry, I don't have one. Mine was a different problem; incompatibility between my old hp desk jet 5650 and my new Mac Book Pro. Just needed a newer printer!
When something like what you describe happens it is because the cartridge is dry; I change the cartridge.

It prints only half a page.... how can i fix that???

Does the print fade out or is the printed page complete, just cropped down? If it is fading out then it is the cartridges running dry, or refilled using the incorrect ink. If it is printing the entire document, just smaller, then under printer properties you can set the page size. (control panel - printers and faxes - right click your printer and select printing preferences) I hope this helps Regards GM

When printing reports off, all the document does not print to the right of the page. whats the answer to fixing this


Does print is faded or it prints clear? If faded, just get your cartridge and shake it well to distribute evenly the toner. If prints clear, preview it first before printing and maybe the other print area you want is not included when printing. Just set the print area.

Fading cartridge problems

That printer is pretty old. Are you selecting "Best" quality when you print or is it possible that some documents are being printed in Quick Print mode (which puts less ink on the page)? If you're doing the same thing on each print job but the print quality changes, there's definitely a problem. If you're printing from web pages, the print quality may be a factor of the design of the pages. If you print two pages of a multi-page document and quality declines, you should be able to get help through Lexmark's technical support.

Printing okay on left side but gets darker and blurrier towards right side of lines

Remove the toner cartridge and drum assembly together. Gently rock the assembly from end to end, as when installing a new toner cartridge. Then put the assembly back in place. This procedure worked for me. I'm guessing that I must have laid the toner and/or drum on its side, or perhaps upside down, when I was replacing the drum, and this was responsible for the problem.

Check your printer settings, If your printer is set on draft mode the prints may appear faded washed out, turn up the quality of the printing and this should solve the problem.
