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.

Hi.. I have a Lexmark X6180 printer and it stopped printing. The paper goes through, and it sounds like it's printing but the paper is blank when it comes out of the printer. There's plenty of...

It could be that your cartridge needs cleaning. On your computer, go to Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark 6100 Series > Lexmark Solution Center. Go to Maintenance tab > select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print your document again and determine if the problem is fixed.

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.

Light yellow horizontal lines on C522

Remove the supplies and clean the yellow printhead. For instructions on how to clean the printheads, click on this link: Just follow the instructions. If that doesn't help, might need replacement.

I have a Lexmark C522 When I print to it...the image that should be a full page prints really small on half of the page. How can I make it print what I send it?

this problem would indicate that the printer thinks the paper is smaller than it is. check the paper size settings on the drawer if the settings are right the replace the paper size pcb

I have a brother HL-5140 which has some nasty ink spodges on each page. Have carefully cleaned wire as recommended . Is there anything else I can do?

if they are evenly spaced, it will be 1 of 2 things, either the fuser or the drum, if you want to check the drum, take it out, take the toner out of the drum, and rotate the drum by turning the gear, be careful not to touch the drum not have it in direct sunlight or incandescent light and see if you can find the spodges on it.
you can also do a test print, print from the manual tray, and open the main cover after the paper goes in almost all the way. open the door, take the drum out and look at the paper, take it out slowly in the direction the paper was going and see if you see the splodge, if you do, again you will know its the drum.
thanks adi

Lexmark stops printer when refill is detected.

Save your original OEM ink cartridge, when the software prevents you from printing, install it, remove it, then install the generic ink cartridge. You'll be good for a couple weeks, then just rinse and repeat.

My printer, a Lexmark 1300 series USB printer, will not print in black ink. It has plenty. The ink is proper lexmark ink. It just appears to not be looking at it's black ink cartridge at all as when I put...

Check your printer preferences and be sure that you're printing in the right way. Select grayscale and see what's happen.

Delete all printer pending jobs.
Take out the cartridge, turn off the printer and wait 5 min.
Turn on the printer, insert the cartridge and try again.
If nothing happens, replace the cartridge
