Re: poor print

Try running a calibration on the printer.

Also try running clean heads function on the printer if it can do so.

Most printers have those options under maintenance.

Have a Lexmark C510N laser colour printer. The print quality has become streaky and poor. Have only used genuine toners

You probably need to replace the photodeveloper cartridge.

Also check the fuser, they sometimes get sticky and pull the toner off the paper. Look for anything stuck to the fuser's rollers. Also check the print outs by rubbing them to see if the toner is stuck to the page well, if not, it's the fuser.

Both need to be changed every once in awhile,with heavy use they need to be changed more often.

I'm getting black streaks down the left side of the paper. There is plenty of toner left in the cartridge. We've vacuumed out the printer, cleaned the drum - nothing helps.

black streaks the toner cartridge is leaking from the left side which is easy to check pull the tone and look at the gears on the left side to see if toner is present. if these gears have toner on them the cartridge is leaking replace it. check the fuser for wear marks on the hot roller which is the top roller when these get worn through the outer coating they will create black streaks

Lexmark laser printer leaving a white streak 2-3

take a q-tip and clean the scanner window. this is located in a 3/16' opening on the roof of the printer cavity it will be about 8inchs long. pull the toner cartridge and feel with your fingers on the roof of the cavity this will be located above the transfer roller slightly towards the front of the printer. white lines like this mean the laser is being blocked usually by a bit of toner or other dirt of some kind

Lexmark t520 suddenly prints poor quality, i.e. the previous page prints softly onto the next page and the right side of the page (2" from right) is streaked with toner. Please help. TIA, Mike

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

I have a Lexmark Optra T614 and when I print mostly black pages such as large dark graphics, I get streaky vertical lines at 3" and 5" from the left side of the portrait oriented page, and a lighter...

You need to either call a repair tech and have the printer serviced for routine maintenance or order a maintenance kit from Lexmark to do the job yourself.

Just curious, what is the page count on the printer? When was the last time the entire print cartridge was replaced?

Printer prints a line across the paper around three inch from the left hand side of the page.

Check your Toner Carts.
Is the line a certain color?
Black perhaps?

Lift the door of the toner cart.
If you see a streak on your toner drum, you will see a streak on your paperwork.

Look at your fuser as well.
Is there a problem with the big orange roller?
BEWARE! Don't touch the fuser roller its EXTREMELY HOT!
Let the printer cool down before inspecting.

Two dots on right side of page

if you replaced the cartridge and the streaks are still there then it's the fuser. you can try to clean the "fuser" roller with a little alcohol and your finger nail (after it's cooled down) to scratch off the toner, if it's an actual scratch on the roller you need to replace the fuser as it will pickup toner again and leave marks.

hope this helps
thanks for rating

Two black dots on right side of page

Are the marks in the same exact spot on each page? If not and you have changed the toner cartridge then most likely the fuser assembly needs to be replaced. This is a job I recommend for a professional.
Good Luck

My problem with the Lexmark optra sc 1275

Lexmarks use a silicone oil cleaning pad on top of the fuser, try to locate a door on top towards the rear, take it out you might see a long black piece, when you take it out it has a felt on the bottom it is used to clean excess toner off the fuser it should be replaced everytime you change your toner ( usually comes w/the toner).
