    I understand your Concern my Friend, but there is a procedure to Reset. Without Following that procedure, How could the Counter be Reset. Unfortunately, As per the Service Manual, without Following the below Instructions, you would not be able to reset it.

    Procedure for E-232 is:
    1. press and hold Start
    2. turn on the
    printer
    - this is service mode -
    - by pressing the Start you can
    print Printer Settings Configuration sheet -

    3. press and
    release Cancel 4 time
    4. Press and hold Start while all lights start
    cycle
    5. press and hold Cancel until all the light cycle
    6.
    turn the printer off to exit the menus

    Follow the Procedure. It is really Simple. Unless you might end up Calling a Tech to Follow the Same Procedure for $75 - $150.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

My lexmark E340 printer displays the message: "remove cartridge paper jam" continuously and not print more pages


There is probably a sensor that is being blocked by paper that you might not be able to see easily. Remove cartridge and check the inside of the printer with a flashlight. Please turn off printer before doing this.

I have a Lexmark E232 laser printer. I have just had a faint unwanted mark on my print-out which repeats itself on each page printed. I found a horizontal streak across the green photoconducter. Can this...


All laserjet printers and laserject function on the same basic principles and unwanted marks, streaks, line etc, which are repeated in a pattern are mostly due to the deterioration of the cartridge parts(photoconductor and PCR roller mainly). The problem can be fixed by correctly identifying the faulty part and replacing it. This saves the cost of buying a new toner. However, sometimes cleaning the visible inside of the printer and cartridge roller greatly helps, which can be easily done using dry lint-free cloth and gently cleaning the photoconductor etc. Good Luck!

Hope it Helps!

Printer is telling me that the life of photoconductor kit has reached the end of its useful life. i have changed the kit with lexmark brand cartriage and will still not work


After replacing the photoconductor kit, you will need to reset the photoconductor page count. Here's the link for instructions on how to reset the page count: http://bit.ly/agYtVo . Or simply press and hold the CANCEL button while the printer is on and the front cover open until all lights are flashing. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. 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

Lexmark E232 Printer prints all characters fine but leaves about an inch gray/black margin on the left side of the paper. Tried replacing the toner cartridge and it didn't help. Any suggestions?


If this model has separate toner and photoconductor then the photoconductor is at end of life and needs to be replaced. Follow the directions that come in the new photoconductor package to install and reset the PC count this is important.
