Question about Lexmark E260dn Laser Printer

1 Answer

The toner light on my printer keeps blinking even with a brand new cartridge in it?

The toner light keeps blinking and I'm not sure why. We put a brand new cartridge in so that's not the issue. It will print from the computer that is hooked up to the printer, however not from the laptop that is connected through google cloud. Why does this happen? I've tried to unplug it, reset it, put new paper in. It will print the diagnostics and I'm not sure how to read them but it says the ink level is fine.

SOURCE: Unisys UDS 25 Printer Problem - Identical to Lexmark T614

Your Unisys UDS 25 is actually a Lexmark Optra T612. Are you using OEM cartridges or recharges? If you're using recharges, that would explain the print quality issues. Was it light with the first cartridge as well as the second? The drum "being on its way out" is a moot point since the drum is replaced when you replace the toner, it's all one cartridge. If you have another printer of the same model, try the cartridge in it and see if the problem follows. If it does, it's the cartridge, take it back and get an OEM one. If the problem does not, then you may need a new image transfer roller. Let me know what happens!

SOURCE: Toner light blinks and error light shows

1- you either got a bad toner ( the chip on it is telling it it is bad)

happens sometimes with recycled toners.

Return it and tell them it is defective.

The chip needs to be replaced.

 

Try this but doubt it will work,

open front door hold down go button, all lights will flash in sequence wait for it to stop turn off and on and close door.

Lexmark advertises the cartridges supplied with this printer as cart. #28 and #29. They claim these are nonrefillable. The refillable cartridges are #28a,29a, 34 and 35, the last two being the high yield carts. Make sure you have one of these.

SOURCE: computer says there is no ink cartridge

OK guys, I don't know if this will work for you but it worked for me. Here it is:

  1. Uninstall all Lexmark software from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.
  2. Reboot the computer as suggested by the uninstall software
  3. Start the ALL-In-One Installer
Now, the first thing the installer does is load the drivers to your hard drive.

4. When the driver is installed it will ask you what ink cartridges you have. Tell it which ones you have and say they are both brand new (even if one is empty or not new). If it asks you to align the printer or print a test page, say no!

After this is complete, the installer will begin to put in the other software (i.e. fax and scan). It will pause and ask you to click next, but do not do this.

5. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete, select the installer task and click end task to stop the installation process.


6. When you print for the first time, it may ask you what cartridges you have installed again. Just select the cartridges you have installed select the option from the drop-down boxes that say that both cartridges are new.


--
Hope it helps since it worked for me. Good Luck

My Dell 1320c printer toner light won't stop blinking


this will sound dumb, make sure you remove all the shipping materials from the cartridge including anything that may be over the electronic components to let the printer identify the new cartridge.

The printer toner light is continuously flashing even after putting in a new cartridge


After installing a new cartridge and the blinking light is on Toner Low, it means that the photoconductor is almost full and should be replaced soon. Press and release the Continue button (green button) to clear the light sequence and continue processing the print job. If the light is still blinking, replace the photoconductor kit.

For further assistance, please call Lexmark Technical Support.

On my Dell 3110cn printer, I keep getting the following error message: "Error C Cart 093-919" I bought this refurbished yellow toner cartridge from a reputable dealer on EBAY and it is basicaly...


remanufactured toners, or off brand toners are sometimes not compatible. I would contact the dealer you bought the toner from and tell them the cartridge is defective and demand an exchange or refund.

Dell 3100n keeps saying "Change Black Toner" even


Before installing a new toner, put a disposable towel over the ink toner exit, and shake your toner lightly back and forth and up and down. Make sure your toner cartridge is in the open position before replacing it in your printer.

If you are using a refillable ink cartridge, make sure you are resetting the cartridge using the method described by the refillable manufacturer.

If this does not answer your question please request more information before voting on my answer. I will try to find more information about your toner cartridge that will help you futher.

AFTER RELOADING TONER INTO CARTRIDGES, THEN RED LIGHT BLINKING AND IT WILL NOT PRINT. WHAT CAN I DO TO FIX THE PROBLEM?


Did you change the chips in the cartridges after you filled them with toner? Inside the cartridges are chips that the printer keep track of the number of images that are printed. After so many pages, the printer marks the cartridge as empty, even if you fill it with toner. When the cartridge is changed the printer reads the serial number on the cartridge and keeps a log it its memory. If the chip is replaced, then the printer does not recognize it and thinks it is a new cartridge.

Hope this helps.

Maybe the toner is low... According to the manual, a blinking red light:

• A minor error is occurring and
the printer is waiting for the error
to be cleared. When the problem
is cleared, the printer resumes
printing.
• The toner cartridge is low. Order
a new toner cartridge. You can
temporarily improve print quality
by redistributing the toner. See
page 8.3.
• The toner is totally exhausted.
Remove the old toner cartridge
and install a new one. See page
8.4.
• The toner cartridge reached the
end of its life.
