Lexmark t522 black marks on leftside of pages

Hello. I have a Lexmark T522 printer that prints evenly spaced light black marks on left hand side of pages.The toner cartridge has been changed, the rear exit roller assembly was swapped with another one, the laser was checked and it was clean. Don't think it was the registration roller inside as problems show up on the FRONT of the pages. NOthing on the back. The inside of the printer was blown out and even the fuser was swapped out with a good working one! Could it be this roller that sits ontop of toner cartridge when you close the door? If so can it be cleaned and how? Is it a remote possiblity that it can be the power supply? Any help would be appreciated!

The top roller is the charge roller and the bottom one is the transfer roller if a foriegn substance got on either roller they could create this problem the oil from your fingers getting on them could create this. given everything youve changed the rollers are whats left. you can clean the charge roller but its better to get new ones these are consumable

The 900 error usually indicates a software or communications problem. The first thing to check is the base printer.

  • Turn off the printer and disconnect every cable, except for the power cord.
  • Turn on the printer and see if the error returns.
  • If the error does not return, try to print a test page from the Test Menu.
  • If the test page prints correctly, the printer

I have a lexmark t522 printer which was working fine about an hour ago but now it won't even power on. Can you advise what you think the problem may be

do this disconnect the scanner motor plug from the engine board this plug is at the top of the engine board it will be either all white strands or blue black and red standed wires. then see if it powers on. this sounds like the scanner motor is dieing and is shorting out when it gets warm.
