Re: lexmark t630

Paper size is incorrectly set!.....

Merlin's idea, of what paper Lex has, and Lex's are different or you have loaded Lex's tray with the paper sideways

Your in Oz so it would be A4 standard and I guess your trying to print B5 script. Try these

The printer has been loaded with one size paper but thinks it is another. change printer settings via keypad on printer

The B5 scripts paper is being loaded sideways instead of length ways or visa verse

There is a incorrect setting in the printer driver that is set up for this specific printer that 'merlin' uses, check print driver setting (control panel,printers and fax, right click on lexmarkt642's icon, properties and check properties fully) in windows software that is running under merlin, also check merlin settings if any for this printer

Hello i have a lexmark t630 and when it prints out of tray 2 it says change tray two and beeps. It will work normal if you hit the select button. What could it be?

the printer is telling you that the tray is reporting the wrong size paper. print the network menu from tray 2 if it prints out smaller than the page it will be reporting smaller than letter. if the bottom line of the outline is missing its reporting legal size paper. if you are running lettersize paper in the tray check on the left side of the tray half way down the drawer you will see a plastic snap in plate with 3 fingers the bottom 2 should be sticking out for letter size paper. you only have to be one of the small adjust teeth off to make the third finger stick out and report the wrong size paper this is a very common issue. look at the metal fingers that stick out of the frame of the options tray to make sure they are uniform and straight. if the fingers are set right and not damaged then the logic board in the tray assembly will have to be replaced

I have a lexmark T630 and the fuser needed replacement, now the printer will print just fine with one problem. On every page that prints out there is about 2in from the left side of the paper light print....

Light print is usually caused by a bad charge roll or transfer roll. Can also be caused by a bad HVPS, which I hope is not. But try cleaning the charge roll. Check the transfer roll, it may have shifted all the way to the left. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.
