Question about Lexmark C534N Printer

Lexmark c534 printed pictures are very dark

I have a Lexmark c534. When I print, the pictures are very dark. I just replaced black toner cartridge and photoconductor. I've tried to adjust the color settings, brightness, contrast and so on, but did not solve problem. Toner belt and fuser show at least 75% life left. What can I do?

Hi,
Just to be sure that this is not a software problem try the following. Go to printers menu and select Reports then Print Demo Page. That will print a Demo page which is a picture. If that picture is very dark as well then the problem is with hardware. You can start by resetting all values to factory defaults. To do that turn the printer off then press and hold the check mark and the Right Pointing arrow, then power the printer on. Wait until the little clock appears and then release the buttons. You will be entering the Config Menu. Then using the arrow buttons search for Factory Defaults and select using the Check mark button. That will reset the Factory Defaults and will make sure that all the settings go back to what they were before. Then Print Another Demo Page if the problem persisted then try to check the life of the Photoconductors and make sure they are not contaminated. This could also be a problem with the High Voltage Power Supply, if thats the case it will probably have to be replace.

Lexmark T642 print gray though new cartridge


Hello,

The main cause of light print is a bad set of charge and transfer rollers. These rollers are used to put a charge on the paper and transfer the toner to the charged paper. When the rollers get worn out they can not put the proper electrical charge on the paper so the toner does not stick to it as it should. One roller sits under the toner cartridge and on is on top on the cartridge. If you pull out the toner and look inside the printer you will see the transfer roller and if you start to close the lid with the toner out you will see the charge roller come into view. Here are pictures of each one. Transfer roller first.

These rollers come in the preventative maintenance roller kit. This kit is available at the following link. The kit also comes with the pickup rollers.

Prints on my Lexmark T632 have a dark line running from leading to trailing edge of the paper. Toner cartridge replaced but didn't help. Lots of toner scattered through out the printer.


Great job on replacing the toner cartridge. Most probably problem's on the fuser or the charge roll. They may need to be replaced. But also check maintenance count to see if you have already reached the 300,000 prints. It affects the print quality when you have reached the limit.

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?

Print quality on Lexmark T640


There are 2 likely possibilities:
1. Very dark print usually indicates your charge roller is not removing the charge from the drum.
The charge roller "erases" the charge laid down by the laser from the previous pass and prepares it for the next portion of the image. If not erased or has a latent charge it will pull toner onto the drum. Try changing the charge roller . 2. Your wiper blade in the cartridge may not be properly wiping excess toner. Swap the toner cartridge with another and see if the problem goes away.
There is a video here you can watch on changing the charge roller:
