Question about Lexmark Optra T614 Laser Printer

2 Answers

Lexmark Optra T614 no longer recognizes the duplexer.

Prints single sided only from Paper Tray 1. Does not recognize installed Duplexer or Paper Tray 2.

    Thanks. The printer has Tray 1 attached to the bottom of printer with screws and nuts - not easy to remove. I have tried reseating duplexer at bottom of Tray 1 - No success. I also tried reseating Tray 2 under Tray 1 - No success. I think the electrical interface that goes between two units has a problem. I need to find a wiring diagram for the printer and tray interconnections.



    Any one have other ideas>

These 6 pin connectors have a clip on each side that is a part of the connector they are to hold the connector in place if either one of these has been broken the connector will not be held in place level and will not make a good connection. another common mistake is to install the printer onto these options with the printers power on. this can blow the fuse in some duplexers main controller and compromise the logic board in the trays.

    There is a 6 pin connector on the bottom of printer on left side towards front. If neither 2nd tray or duplexer is recognized individually then check the connector, may have been pushed out of place. The connector goes to the engine board. You can see the connector when you take the left cover off

I have a Lexmark T634N printer. I have problem with it recognizing the 2nd tray and the Duplexer. I have replace the motherboard, replace the connector on the printer, updated the software on the printer...


Hi

You need to be sure that you have added the duplex unit and tray unit in the windows driver. The "device" tab will allow you to add the duplex and tray to the printer.Also there is a self-docking connector on the bottom of the printer that connects to a similar connector on the duplex unit. Check that these connectors are not damaged by lifting the printer off the duplexer and inspecting visually . You can try removing the duplex unit altogether and just install tray 2 below the printer with no duplex unit at all to see if the printer sees tray 2. If it does see it then the problem is in the duplex unit. If the printer can't see the duplexer it also wont see tray 2 which is below it. Simply re-plugging the units might fix it too so give that a try.

Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.

Printer says - "57 - Check Duplex Connection". What should I do?


On a printer, the "duplexer" flips the paper over, so that it can print on the "back" of a sheet, after printing on the "front" side.

Check that the duplexer hardware is properly connected & seated into its socket.

LEXMARK OPTRA R+ SAYS LOAD PAPER 28


Try loading paper in both trays. Tray '2' is supposed to be the bottom tray. It is a much larger tray than the top tray which sits underneath the duplexer.

IBM 4039 drivers also work for this model.

Paper jams only while duplexing


Back door broken, diverter gate broken?
I would look for something like this. did the tech clean the duplexers tires??

I would also try a different duplexer if possible-paper path sensor may be dirty or obstructed

Duplexer


If you really have an HP 4350dtn (d = duplexer), then the duplexer is not connected correctly. Look at the back of the printer for the duplexer. It prtrudes from the back drop down tray and is used to print on both sides. I would pull it out and push it back in to make sure all connections are tight.

Tray number 1 is the manual feed tray in the front of the unit.

Duplexer problem


First, the machine always prints the first page first. Make sure you have the right driver (4 plus and not 4)and check the settings in the device settings of your printer driver on the pc. Also make sure the duplex unit is for the 4 plus and not the 4.
