Light yellow horizontal lines on C522

I just replaced all 4 toner cartriges on my Lexmark C522. While color printing I get light yellow horizontal lines. Black and white mode is perfect.
I tried several pics and colored docs and get these lines again and again.
thx for you response

Remove the supplies and clean the yellow printhead. For instructions on how to clean the printheads, click on this link: http://bit.ly/bCoz92. Just follow the instructions. If that doesn't help, might need replacement. If issue remains after printhead has been cleaned and the supply has been replaced, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. Thanks.

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.

My pictures turn red


generally this is due to your ink cartrige not having enough of the cyan or yellow to produce accurate colors. that or the print heads need to be cleaned on the cartrige. you can clean them with a cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol.

if all else fails replace yoru color cartrige with a new one.

I just replaced the yellow and cyan cartridges on my Lexmark c522 color printer and now a light yellow color prints out on every page I print, even standard black and white. What should I do. Thanks


Remove the yellow cartridge. Pull back the shutter that covers the drum. Check to see if its covered with yellow toner. It should be fairly clean. You can pull another one and do the same to compare. If theres a lot of toner over it then the cartridge is bad.

I put a new ink cartrige and printer prints low coulour tone.


A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below: 
1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.  2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks."  Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page. 
The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps. 
If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below: 
1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.  2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.  3. Get a damp paper towel.  4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.  5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.  6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.  7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.  8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."  9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.

Toner showing empty


first, if you refilled your toner, the printer will always tell you, that you are not using original toner and red light will blink. second, if printer tell you every time to replace different color, then you need to clean a chip reader and chips on toners. take out all toners and pc drum. under toner rack there is a chip reader, clean it with pressure air and reinstall
