Re: IBM Infoprint1120 and Lexmark T520 toner cartridges.
You cannot use Lexmark toner cartridges in IBM models and vice-versa because the toner carts have a smartchip that identifies the toner to the printer. IBM printers expect to see IBM toners and Lexmark machines expect to see Lexmark toners. If you put the wrong cartridge in you will get '32' Unsupported print cartridge error.
Some refillers may swap the smartchip when they refill cartridges and this would be the only reason why you may have seen it done before.. IS your current toner a refilled one? It's technically possible to make an IBM printer into a Lexmark printer to accept Lexmark toners by replacing the System Board... but why would you bother doing that...just use the right toner.

Make sure that the toner ink cartridge is a genuine Lexmark toner cartridge. Try removing the toner cartridge and then shake the toner sideways. Re-seat the toner cartridges and check if the error persists. If it does, please contact our Technical Support Hotline.
this sounds like you have a fuser problem look at the fuser and see if it has toner build up on the rollers ghost printing can be caused by the toner cartridge or the fuser. this would indicate that your fuser isnt maintaining enough heat for complete fusing. is you take the rear covers off and run your print job. look to the far left side of the fuser and you will see the heat lamp lit up. this light should cycle on every 1 1/2 pages or so. any longer than that and it wont keep up with the print job
Ideally just replace the toner cartridge. But if fairly new, just clean the loose toner off from the old cartridge's printing surface by swabbing it as you manually turn the drum. If while doing this you notice black burned into the glassy surface of the toner cartridge or scars along the surface you'll just have to replace it. Happens once in a while, especially with refurbished cartridges.
Here are some things that could be causing your problem:
-Could be the paper you are printing does not meet the printer specifications.
-Could be toner leaking out of the cartridge.
-Could be environmental issues, too hot or cold or humid.
-The toner density could be set too high.
-The electrical contacts that connect the toner cartridge to the printer could be dirty or just not making good contact.
-the printer power supply could be defective.
-With regards to your toner cartridge are you using new IBM cartridges or refilled/remanufactured? I?ve had many customers call me to fix a printer problem that turned out to be a bad cartridge.
All of these are within the capabilities of the typical user except changing the power supply. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
