For 34 Short Paper error, reseat the tray guides and make sure it is set properly. Also, set the correct settings in the computer. For blank pages, always double-check the paper settings and again the settings in the computer. For not printing black, print the Print Quality page and see what color is not printed or not showing. If Print Quality shows black, try printing any document from any application in the computer. Check if you still have the problem. If problem is not resolved, leave a comment so I can get back to this.
Hi, The black solid page could be due to a loose charge roller on the Photodeveloper. Here is an article that has pretty good instructions on how to verify and properly set the charge roller. http://bit.ly/cAC0Hw
Hi, This error could be due to several things, the most common one is that whatever is being sent from the computer is not being recognized by the printer causing the 900 Rip Soft Error. You can try to reset the printer and try sending the print job again. If the error persisted. Then the problem could be a hardware problem with the System Board.
I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!
This is from the service manual, unfortunately there isn't a cold reset, you can perform an EP factory reset in the diagnostic mode, but this won't cure your problem. Investing in some more memory is the best answer
Press Go to clear message
and continue printing job. Job
may not print correctly.
Press Menu to open Job Menu
and cancel current job.
To avoid this error in future:
• Simplify print job by
reducing amount of text or
graphics on a page and
downloaded fonts or
• Install additional printer
That printer is pretty old. Are you selecting "Best" quality when you print or is it possible that some documents are being printed in Quick Print mode (which puts less ink on the page)? If you're doing the same thing on each print job but the print quality changes, there's definitely a problem. If you're printing from web pages, the print quality may be a factor of the design of the pages. If you print two pages of a multi-page document and quality declines, you should be able to get help through Lexmark's technical support.
