Check the yellow drum unit carefully, could be a full or clogged waste toner collection unit.

SOURCE: White lines appearing on print

White Lines on the Printed Page ID:193 null.gif null.gif null.gif
Clean the print nozzles as follows:

  1. Go to Start, Programs, Lexmark, Lexmark Solution Center (or Lexmark Control Program) and select the Cartridges tab.
  2. Select Cartridge Nozzles (or Clean Print Nozzles).
  3. Check the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. The diagonal lines should be continuously solid from left to right, with no gaps.
  4. If there are gaps at the top that diminish at the bottom, run the Clean Print Nozzle page a few more times. If the gaps are gone, the Clean Print Nozzle page has probably resolved the problem.
  5. If the gaps still exist, you should unblock ("wick") the cartridges. See How to Unblock/Wick the Cartridge Nozzles.
    For additional help, refer to the following article: How to Clean the Maintenance Station .

SOURCE: printing blank pages

Check that the cartridges are seated correctly. Also clean the contacts in the casing that the copper portion of the cartridge sits against.

Did you try cleaning the lense? You'll have to pull all the toners and open the little door below and wipe with a clean lint free cloth in ONE direction.

    SOURCE: printing blank pages

    For 34 Short Paper error, reseat the tray guides and make sure it is set properly. Also, set the correct settings in the computer. For blank pages, always double-check the paper settings and again the settings in the computer. For not printing black, print the Print Quality page and see what color is not printed or not showing. If Print Quality shows black, try printing any document from any application in the computer. Check if you still have the problem. If problem is not resolved, leave a comment so I can get back to this.

    Whenever I print color, entire page comes out blue. I have replaced the cyan cartridge (twice) and the Laser Transfer Kit. Sometimes there are thick blue streaks in addition to the overall blue color. What...


    Run the "disable cartridge check"
    It will be in the Diagnostics.
    Once you start the test, you can remove all the cartridges. Put the cyan in the black cartridge slot.
    print a config page. If it is all blue, you have another bad cartridge. If it prints correctly(minus the other colors)...continue
    Now put the magenta in the cyan cartridge slot. Print the config page again. If you have red all over the page, you have a problem with the slot itself.
    Press the STOP button and then select EXIT diagnostics. Put the cartridges back where they all go and run CALIBRATION more than once.
    Select/menus/down arrow/configure devce/select configure device
    Down arrow/print quality/seect print quality
    Down arrow/ calibrate now. Select it and wait.

    Cartridge alignment


    So if the magenta or yellow are not showing up, it may mean you have installed an empty (or dried up) color cartridge. If you have it, put the "low" volume color cartrige back in and print an alignment page. If you don't have the cartridge, no problem, just print a page from Google. Don't worry about the alignment until you print from Google. See if color is even available. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
