    Thank you so much for the information!

    I hope this works. I've just tried everything I could think of. I'm not sure what the hot roller is. But, I can clean the fuser.

    Thanks again.

You seem to have a fuser problem. It may be that the thermostat is coated with baked on toner, so that it can't read the correct temperature. In that case it just requires that you strip the fuser and clean it all up. My guess is that you will need to replace the hot roller too.

Why do copies in color have multicolored streaks while black & white are fine?

There is a good chance that your color ink cartridge needs replacement. You can tray wetting a paper towel and putting in the microwave for 5 to 10 seconds then placing the cartridge on it for a few minutes. This sometimes will correct that type of problem...Be careful the paper towel will be hot (handle with care).

What is error code 3502


The fusing unit is causing the error. that part that gets hot. The code is stating its getting to hot. When was the last time a Preventive maintenance was done every 250,000 copies certain parts are to be replaced. You can try reset power off (Main Power Sw is inside) Sub power is on the op panel try leaving the sub on then power on with main close door once on keep the utility button down) the machine hold the utility /counter button down power on the machine wait to you see trouble reset. touch it see OK then power off wait ten seconds power on. IF the code comes back do not reset again the machine is telling you its broke this section of the machine can get hot enough to burn!!!!!! Get a technician out to fix it and conduct a PM remember every 250K and replace drum 500K

Lexmark will not print black ink

Try soaking the print head in a shallow dish of really hot water. Blot dry with a paper towel. You should be able to see the colors on the towel if you cleared the clog.

Copies made are totally black. what do i do? i changed cartridged, put in new paper then copied. it copied fine after 20pages, copy sounded like it was jamming up, paper came out with some parts black....

Hello limay_uera

Please check your Printer setup. or options ( I am not familiar with this printer. what terms they use- I'm not sure) Ther will be options for Print in Color or Black. Make sure the radio button for COLOR is checked. This way, black and color both will print in the correct color. So leave it on color even when you want to print in Black. The black radio button is there for a different reason.
Hope this will help you.

Machine gets hot

Looks like the fuser is overheating. This means that you will have to remove the fuser and strip it down for cleaning and/or replacemnet of some parts, such as the thermostat, thermistor and hot roller.
