Thin, pencil-like stripes could call for the replacement of one or both of the following:
The drum cartridge or the fuser cartridge.
What few people seem to know is that there is usually a cleaning wand that goes above the fuser. This wand keeps the fuser clean and makes it last MUCH longer than without. When it gets really dirty it can actually aid in destroying the fuser rather than extending its life. If the lines JUST began to show up you may be able replace the wand and then hopefully the lines will begin to fade.
Here's the easiest way to tell which is causing the problem.
1. Carefully remove the cartridge from the unit. Underneath the cartridge is a small flap covering a (probably) green photo drum. Gently move it to expose the drum. If the drum has slightly off green lines or black lines in the same area your paper shows lines then you need to order another cartridge.
2. If the cartridge is clean, then remove the top panel that rests in the groove where the copied paper lays after the printer spits it out. It should slide to the left and lift out. Inside, there is a small (probably) black wand that has a small handle on one side that will lift out. Using a flashlight, look inside the machine. If the fuser is bad, it should have lines in the areas your copied paper is lined. If it does, replace the fuser.

I have a Lexmark C522 Color Laser printer, all cartridges are showing as ok, no error messages but printed pages have specks of magenta toner on them

It sounds as though you have a leaking toner cartridge. If you aren't using Lexmark brand toner, that is VERY likely.. nobody seems to be able to make a good compatible cartridge. Test by replacing it.

I have plenty ink but i cant get anything that has blue in it

The issue might be caused by a defective or improperly installed supply. Here's an article on Colors Missing on Pages Printed on a Lexmark C520, C522, C524, C530, C532 or C534. Just click on this link: You can also try swapping the supplies, however, if the problem continues it's a possible EP driver assembly or printhead assembly issue. If you're having difficulty following the instructions, don't hesitate to contact Lexmark technical support or your authorized service provider for further assistance. Thanks.

I just replaced the yellow and cyan cartridges on my Lexmark c522 color printer and now a light yellow color prints out on every page I print, even standard black and white. What should I do. Thanks

Remove the yellow cartridge. Pull back the shutter that covers the drum. Check to see if its covered with yellow toner. It should be fairly clean. You can pull another one and do the same to compare. If theres a lot of toner over it then the cartridge is bad.

I'm getting a message about "transfer belt life warning" on a LEXMARK C522. I thought this should have done loads more copies before it needed replacing.

What is new to you might not be so new. Sometimes these things can sit on a shelf for months and you buy it not knowing how long it has been there in that store. Being that the belt is possible plastic it wears even if its not being used then it gets old and cracks now you have to have it replaced. Your best bet is to always check to see how long the equipment have been sitting on the shelf before you buy it.
