Question about Lexmark Optra E310 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Light printing. The printer is a real workhorse! Had it since 2000! Now it is printing light; is there anything as far as setting are concerned, or should I change the cartridge? It was changed not more than a month ago, I don't print that much. A cartridge usually lasts me for about a year. Thanx for your help!

Re: Light printing.

Try cleaning the transfer roller.

take out the cartridge look inside at a black roller kind of spongy

clean it with a clean lint free cloth.

It could be that the toner is bad if it's a generic, did it start when you put in the new one?

My printer stops printing after printing about two sentences.

I fixed the problem. I kept checking and rechecking making sure everything on my computer was working correctly using any free resources I could locate. I concluded it had to be the printer. I purchased a new Canon Printer and "YAHOO" it workded perfectly.
Thanks for your response and concern.

Put in new ink cartridge -- won't print

Try lifting up the cover. If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing. If the problem is not related
to low ink, the light continues to flash after the cover is opened. It might be that the new cartridge is defective. Check the connections and see if there isn't anything keeping it from making contact.

My printer does not print

Try using the utilities of your printer, clear the heads and align them. This usualy happens when the cartridges are new. Maybe the problem is that previous cartridges where empty and the new ones need alignment.
This is just a proposal though i need more information concerning your truoblshooting.
Are the cartridges OEM HP or reconstructed?
When you try to print the green light flashes or not?
try giving any piece of information you can

My printer won't print. Can't get the Print light to turn off.

I downloaded the manual. It showed how to solve print light problems. There was some paper caught in the system.

It now works! Thanks for your concern.

Canon bjc 240/orange light stays on

The blinking orange light could mean one or more of the following: -Home position error -Waste ink full error -Temperature sensor error -Printing position correction error -Cleaning error -Printer memory error I would probably clean the waste ink tank first. Make sure you unplug it first. Take the cartridge out and clean real good at the bottom.
