As i'm sure you already know the error means - Laser power is lower than the output limit.
It's probably due to a bad contact on the engine board. If you would like the service manual it can be downloaded from the following link free of charge http://www.eserviceinfo.com/equipment_mfg/Lexmark_22.html any problems come back to me.

I found a fix for this! Take the cartridge out. On each side of it there is a hole (I believe that this is a sensor...) place a small piece of electrical tape over these holes. Place cartridge back in.... no more error! But I would go out and get some toner soon though!

If you open your printer front and pull out all the toner cartridges, on the left, you will see 4 LED lights vertically in a column that match up with 4 matching red light receptor sensors on the right side. Each toner cartridge has a tiny window on each side. When the toner powder level drops below the window level, a light passes all the way through the cartridge from the LED light to the light receptor and trips the printer to display the low toner warning.

The goal is to BLOCK THE LIGHT. The easiest way is to put electrical tape over the window on the right side of each cartridge window. To ensure you have the proper hole, just shine a flashlight in the hole and you will see the reflection from the tiny plastic window.

Print is blurry


Remove the toner cartridge and print cartridge assembly. Slightly shake it from side to side to redistribute toner properly. Also, please check the supply level of your toner cartridge.

You might want to consider replacing the toner cartridge since you have already replace the PC unit.
Also, check the transfer roll for signs of toner buildup and contamination.
Inspect the HVPS contact (transfer roll) for contamination. Verify the high voltage cable is plugged into the LVPS/HVPS.

If all the steps mentioned above were done. I would suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance.

Lexmark optra t610 invalid refill error change cartridge......how do i reset the printer to disable the error


The error may not be specifically a toner cartridge problem but may be due to a stuck cover open switch on the printer. Perhaps this article on Error: "Invalid Toner Cartridge" or "Invalid Refill" will be able to determine the root cause of the problem. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/dupj2m. Just make sure you are using a genuine Lexmark toner in the printer. If you need further assistance, you can also contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

TONER LIGHT STAYS ON WITH NEW TONER CARTRIDGE


Hi,

If the main problem is just the toner light on then what you could do after installing the new toner is resetting the printer. You could do that by powering the printer off, open the front cover (as if you were to replace the toner) with the front cover open and the printer off push and hold the two buttons on the printer and turn the printer on while holding down the buttons then once the bottom light stays on solid, release the two buttons and that should reset the printer.
Now if the toner light is blinking that means that you have reached the 30,000 page mark and the Photoconductor needs to be replaced. If that is not the case you can follow this link to a procedure where it will explain how to reset the Photoconductor. http://bit.ly/91SWS3

IBM Infoprint1120 and Lexmark T520 toner cartridges.


You cannot use Lexmark toner cartridges in IBM models and vice-versa because the toner carts have a smartchip that identifies the toner to the printer. IBM printers expect to see IBM toners and Lexmark machines expect to see Lexmark toners. If you put the wrong cartridge in you will get '32' Unsupported print cartridge error.
Some refillers may swap the smartchip when they refill cartridges and this would be the only reason why you may have seen it done before.. IS your current toner a refilled one? It's technically possible to make an IBM printer into a Lexmark printer to accept Lexmark toners by replacing the System Board... but why would you bother doing that...just use the right toner.
