Question about Lexmark C524 Laser Printer
While printer works and prints properly, there is a gray sheen looking like brownish-gray "burn" marks over entire page. When printing envelopes, the "burn" pattern is most pronounced over the seams of the envelope -- revealing the envelope flap pattern on the front of the envelope.
If the paper really is being burnt then there is a fault with the fuser roller temperature control. This would also make a smell. If this gray sheen is made of toner then this may be the laser unit not putting out enough power. The optics could be dirty. One thing to try before attempting repair- Reduce the print density to minimum in the printer advanced settings. This increases the Laser power. Good luck
