    I have the same problem with my C510 printer. Prints great in B&W. Even in the printer self test it won't print in color either which rules out driver issue. Checked all toner cartridges and they are ok. I hope there is a simple solution to this.

Seriously, buy a new printer. Companies sell toner, not printers! The printer is basically a "freebie" and is a marketing vehicle to sell toner. I tossed my C510 into the dumpster. It had four new toner cartridges. System diagnostics said that everything was at 95% or better. The printer had about 1600 prints on it. The first set of toner cartridges (full at purchase!) printed great. Then, I got dotted lines on clean prints. Or, I would get washed out, yellow tinted print and often, there was no black print. I called a printer repair shop and they laughed and told me to chuck the printer - they were suprised it lasted through the first set of cartridges. Lexmark literally "ignored me to death."

I will NEVER buy another Lexmark. The Brother and HP color lazers are probably the best bet. I have two HP B&W's that are paper pumps - an old 4V and a 6MP. The sad part is that I paid a bit more for the Lexmark than the competing HP. You live and then you learn!

In your printer's menu there is an option to go to strictly black and white under the color menu. Make sure that is set to color.

Since i install a new drum, i have smudges on my copies how do i fix


    Sir/Madam

    If you have Brother Printer print quality problems, Then I suggest You clean the Your Brother printer drum unit as follows:

    Small Spots on the printed pages:

    If your printed document has any small white or colored spots, follow the steps below.

    1.Open the manual feed slot cover.


    68682939-74ee-4f87-a7a5-f02054ffd056.gif

    2. Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

    3c58990a-a64f-467e-80f1-d002cea26746.gif

    3.Using both hands, put one blank sheet of paper in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper touches the paper feed roller. Wait until the machine automatically feeds the paper. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.



    Note
    • Make sure that the paper is straight and in the correct position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
    • Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
    • Do not put paper in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state. An error may occur and the printer will stop printing.

    2eb57e9d-950e-4b6e-ad8b-56c8ebb19b07.gif

    4.Make sure that the printer is in the Ready state. Press + or - to choose "Color Correction". Press OK.

    5.Press + or - to choose "Drum Cleaning".

    6.Press Go. The printer will pull in the piece of paper and start cleaning the drum unit.

    6b922b0a-02b3-4722-b1c9-66c30edf3521.gif

    7.When the printer has finished cleaning, "Completed" appears on the LCD.
    Press Cancel so that the printer returns to the Ready state.

    8.Repeat steps 3 to 7 two more times using a new blank sheet of paper each time. Upon completion, please discard the used paper. If the print problem still remains, please go to the Step 9.

    Large spots on the printed pages:
    Hint If your printed page has colored spots at 94mm (3.7 in) intervals, please follow the step below.
    1. 9.Turn off the printer power switch.

    caa08e02-67b8-4b61-b1fd-f671f7a5511b.gif

    10. Fully open the top cover by lifting up on the handle (1).

    51223372-6d42-4884-a45a-5442dfcea382.gif

    11. See the print sample to identify the color causing the problem. The color of the spots is the color of the drum you should clean. For example, if the spots are cyan, you should clean the drum for cyan. Take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly of the color causing the problem.


    Caution
    • We recommend that you place the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly on a clean, flat surface with a sheet of disposable paper or cloth underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.
    • To prevent damage to the printer from static electricity, DO NOT touch the electrodes shown in the illustration.

    2a1279fb-d964-4573-9637-8c4266c18daa.gif

    12.Push down the green-labeled lock lever (1) and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit.

    Caution
    1. Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, wipe or wash it off with cold water at once.
01d4b807-b16c-4217-9312-e3512e748120.gif

13.Put the print sample in front of the drum unit, and find the exact position of the poor print.

fe28efe7-23fa-418e-a71c-71a7d329763b.gif
14.Turn the drum unit gear by hand while looking at the surface of the OPC drum (1).

f8e1a002-f52a-4911-84f3-67e5a15fc8ba.gif

15.When you have found the mark on the drum that matches the print sample, wipe the surface of the OPC drum with a dry cotton swab until the dust or glue on the surface comes off.

DO NOT clean the surface of the photosensitive drum with a sharp object.

Note Make sure that you put in the toner cartridge properly or it may separate from the drum unit.


03991bfa-c64e-4dd8-aeea-1125e013c751.gif

17.Slide each drum unit and toner cartridge assembly into the printer. Make sure that you match the toner cartridge color to the same color label on the printer.

C- Cyan, M- magenta, Y- Yellow, K- Black

c4958bf8-67a3-434e-aa55-88957008ada8.gif



18.Close the top cover of the printer.

Hi i cannot print any documents ive typed with words or school information it keeps saying STATUS:TONER LOW ??


Based upon your question, which is a bit vague, you must have a laser printer. What the printer is telling you is it has insufficient toner (some incorrectly mis-state "toner" with "ink". Laser printer = Toner. Inkjet printer = ink) for the print job to occur. If you have a laser printer which prints in only black (black and white), then you can try this:
Black only: Open the toner access panel on your printer, remove the toner cartridge (it will easily pull out), and GENTLY shake the toner cartridge from side-to-side . What you're doing is allowing toner (ink?? It's more of a powder-like substance which consists of ground-up plastic) to shake evenly to the bottom of the cartridge. Then, put it back in. IMPORTANT: This will not work for long. You need to get a new toner cartridge soon!
Color: If you have a laser printer which can print in color (based upon your description, it sounds like this is NOT the case. If you have a color laser printer, it would display to you that a particular color is out of toner), then do the same thing as described above... but for EACH toner cartridge.
It still doesn't work: If this does not work, then you're out of toner (Ink... sigh). You MUST replace your toner cartridge which is out of toner. If there was another way to do it, I would tell you. When you're out, you're out.
Please let me know if you have any further questions by doing a REPLY to this answer. I'll be happy to help!

The printer marks an error with the color cartridge, i open it check it and still has ink, but still doesnt wanna print, what can i do? Its a lexmark x 2695


It could be that the color cartridge has gone bad now. Try to re-seat the color cartridge in the printer. And if that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working color cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.

HP color laserjet 1600 wonte printe new toner color.


The supply status report is based on what the kill chip is reporting to the printer. If that particular color is not printing then it is likely that current is not flowing though a particular component in the cartridge. I would return the cartridge and get a replacement.
