If it is pure yellow I would look at the yellow imaging unit (drum) to make sure that it is ok. That is likely the culprit if changing the toner did not resolve the problem.

SOURCE: TONER LIGHT STAYS ON WITH NEW TONER CARTRIDGE

Hi,

If the main problem is just the toner light on then what you could do after installing the new toner is resetting the printer. You could do that by powering the printer off, open the front cover (as if you were to replace the toner) with the front cover open and the printer off push and hold the two buttons on the printer and turn the printer on while holding down the buttons then once the bottom light stays on solid, release the two buttons and that should reset the printer.
Now if the toner light is blinking that means that you have reached the 30,000 page mark and the Photoconductor needs to be replaced. If that is not the case you can follow this link to a procedure where it will explain how to reset the Photoconductor. http://bit.ly/91SWS3

Black ink on edge of paper


You may try to clean the rollers using a slightly damped paper towel.

Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 5100 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.


After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

How do I change the ink cartridge in a Lexmark x2330


  • Turn the Lexmark printer on by pressing the power button. Usually, the power button is located on top of the Lexmark printer. If the Lexmark printer does not power on immediately, then hold the button down for a few seconds before releasing it. Once the Lexmark printer has powered on, the installed cartridges will begin to move back and forth for a few minutes.

  • 2

    Raise the Lexmark printer cover up towards you. Doing this will give you instant access to the inside components of the Lexmark printer. Lift the cartridge release lever and remove any installed ink cartridges. Be careful when doing this because the ink may leak out. It's best to have a disposable bag or paper towel near you when performing these steps.

  • 3

    Remove the plastic from the brand new cartridges by carefully cutting them open with scissors or tearing along the perforated edges. Once you have removed the plastic, there's a yellow tag located near the bottom of the ink cartridge. Take this tag off only when you're ready to insert the ink cartridges into the slots.

  • 4

    Tear the yellow tag from the ink cartridges and place them into their corresponding slots. Each one will be easily identified by its color. The cartridge release lever will have the same color as the ink cartridge. If you mistakenly place the cartridges in the wrong slot, then you'll risk having your Lexmark printer stop working properly.

  • 5

    Press the ink cartridges into the slots and listen for a clicking noise after the insertion. Although you will need to firmly place the ink cartridges into the available slots, it still needs to be done gently. Close the Lexmark printer cover when you've completed the previous steps. Wait a few minutes for the Lexmark printer to recognize that you have inserted brand new ink cartridges. After a few seconds, it will go through some diagnostic steps to make sure the ink cartridges were correctly inserted.

  • 6

    Print a test page on your Lexmark printer. This will help you to determine if the ink cartridges are properly working. You can view the newly printed images and text after the Lexmark printer has finished printing. Get rid of your used ink cartridges by throwing them away or sending them to an online store that accepts empty ink cartridges.

    Great job on cleaning the cartridges and even trying 3 new ink cartridges. Pretty much you did the basic troubleshooting already. This looks like a hardware problem but I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem. Thanks.

    This likely to be a faulty cartridge.

    There are a number of things that can result in blank pages, but if the cartridge has just been changed (and the old one was fine apart from being 'empty'), you should be talking to your supplier.

    Pictures coming out yellow


    The "Print Head" needs cleaning or replacement. It's the part that delivers the ink from the cartridge tank to the paper itself.Mostly caused by air entering the lines and making any residual ink cure.
    Most newer printers only ever use 95% of the available ink before reporting tank is empty,and will not allow any printing to resume, preventing air being introduced to empty lines in the head.



    Without Removing Anything

    There's commercial products available, I guess a bit like using a head cleaning cassette in your VCR - I Have not tried any of these yet.

    Use an empty ink cartridge Refilled with hot water and run the print head cleaning function.
    ( Dont worry , The paper will absorb the minute amount of water being dispersed.)

    If that fails you should remove the print head cartridge most are pretty easy ,
    LexMark X1150 X1185 and other similar models with the sensor strip running through the cartridge instructions are located at the following FixYA topic
    http://www.fixya.com/support/t181337-piece_fallen_out_printer

    Immerse it in warm-to hot water for a while or try using rubbing alcohol or similar Non-solvent based liquid.
    Inspect the small rectangle shaped metal print head & surrounding copper track for dried ink , remove any with very gentle wiping taking care not to damage anything.


    If it's beyond cleaning it will have to be replaced .Try ebay or the local print shop.
