Re: My problem with the Lexmark optra sc 1275

Lexmarks use a silicone oil cleaning pad on top of the fuser, try to locate a door on top towards the rear, take it out you might see a long black piece, when you take it out it has a felt on the bottom it is used to clean excess toner off the fuser it should be replaced everytime you change your toner ( usually comes w/the toner).

I have a lexmark optra sc 1275 I just downloaded the drivers and tried to print but it takes 3 minutes a page. What is wrong?

Probably nothing. This is a very slow 13 year old printer, claiming 7.5 pages per minute for black and .5 ppm for color. Make sure your settings are for black only to get the maximum speed. Even then, manufacturer claims are often high for print speeds, so 3 minutes a page, especially for color, is probably about right.

How i can solve the 913 service motor error lexmark sc1275 my printer?

913 Transfer Roller Error
The printer fails to completely transfer the image to the paper or does not transfer it at all.
The image transfer roll does not lift when paper is passing over it.
Suspect either the transfer roller solenoid or transfer roller motor malfunction.
The printer would have to be professionaly serviced by authorized service centre.

Lexmark Optra 1275sc - 900 Service - Software Error

I have the same problem, but the error only occurs when I try to print a .pdf file (Adobe Reader) using the "Lexmark Optra SC 1275 PS" driver. For some reason the PS driver didn't like .pdf files! My solution was to always print .pdf files using the alternative " Lexmark Optra SC 1275 (MS)" driver, which Lexmark also offers on its website.

Usually there is more to this message particulary if this is a color printer. Basically the printer is telling you that tyhere is a problem in the Photoconducter area of the print cartridge. Normally I would expect to see a 84 PC end of life. Can you tell me if you left some information out, please?

Two black dots on right side of page

Are the marks in the same exact spot on each page? If not and you have changed the toner cartridge then most likely the fuser assembly needs to be replaced. This is a job I recommend for a professional.
Good Luck
