If your cartridge has a lever on the left side near the rear, it needs to be reset, and there's a lever inside on the left that can stick and cause that error. You need to wiggle and pull that lever until it moves freely again.

Two likely possibilities:

1. The drum is scratched by particles caught under the drum cleaning blade. Every copier or printer that has a drum leaves a little bit of toner on the drum that didn't get transferred to the paper. A soft plastic blade scrapes off that excess. If a chunk of fused toner or something gets caught under it, it can scrape a groove around the drum, resulting in a black line. Take a close look at the drum for scratches matching the lines you get. The cure is a new drum unit.

2. The fuser roller is scratched. Open up the back of the printer. The fuser is the assembly with labels warning about how hot it is. The final stage of the print process is to press the page between those two hot rollers, melting the toner into the paper. The hot roller is coated with Teflon to prevent pulling toner off the page and laying it back down where it doesn't belong, but like the drum, it can be scratched. You might be able to look for scratches on the hot roller with the help of a strong flashlight and magnifier. If it's scratched, you need a new hot roller or a complete new fuser.

Let us know what you find.

My printer X5250 is working perfect as


I just wonder if you are some problem with the fonts being transferred to the printer.You could try changing the font you are using to one of the system fonts i.e. Times or Helvetica. Also go to the applications folder open up the app called font book and see if there is any conflict of the fonts you are trying to print. see http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/5200/macxug/en/PrintsDifferentFonts.html

P Touch 1880 indicates MAX font size, but prints smaller sized label. If I print one word at a time, it prints in MAX size. If I print two or more words, it prints smaller font. Weird, new problem.


Sounds like you may have a maximum length set that keeps you from printing over a certain length of label and it is adjusting your font size to fit that length. You may need a manual to figure out how to reset the length.

Print slow


Ink jets print slower than other printers. I have used many printers and found that if your documents are black and white only the print is faster. The font also makes a difference. if the font is fancy it takes longer for the printer to translate.

Russian font not printing


When your windows os was installed the option for the Russian language installation was not chosen. You will probably need the opersting system disk to install additional languages to your old computer. This will allow your old computer to print in various scripts/languages (out of the ordinary characters).

Another solution is to go to your operating system website (Microsoft, Mac, Linux - whatever) and simply type in "Download russian caracter patch" or some derivation thereof.

Hope this helps

Can not find a way to print in draft mode so toner


Laser printer can sometimes be set via the front panel on the printer for draft mode. Also, you might be able to set Draft Mode from the printer properties menu in the print driver.

The actual easiest way is change your font to something like Courier, 10P, which is a fixed spaced font.

When the document is finished, then you can do a "Ctrl A" and change the font to a more fancy font.

Looks like a braille text


Open the HP Printer Toolkit (this software was installed from the CD-ROM that came with the HP printer) and run a "cleaning cycle",
because some of the ink-jets are clogged, which results in the "all-white" horizontal lines, where some part of that line should be black.

Can't enlarge font. The print is so small from a printing, that you can barely read it.


If the font size from the printer is smaller than on your screen then you need to adjust the font in the print options/advanced tab. The font rint out is defaulted to either 8 or 10. Go to Print Preview...Print options and go to the advanced tab and set print font size to Scale for A4 paper.

It sounds like you are printing to postcard size paper.

Everytime that I try to print a document, I am getting a lot of boxes. I am not getting the words printed that I need.


Hi Goody2Shoes6, what a great nickname!

If the boxes are a rectangle for every letter, try changing the font, especially if the printer is an old model and the font is recent, if it does it for every font, type up a letter (or type =rand(3) in word and it will put some blurb up for you) then press the Alt key at same time Print Scrn key. Then open paint and go to edit menu / paste. go File Print preferences and set the page to 1 by 1 pages, File / Print preview, if good Print.

The printer should print it, as it is taking it as a picture file, if that same font won't print straight from word (and gives you little squares) it means the printer doesn't have that font listed in it's memory

If it is the case, buy a new printer, or use an older font that works.

Printer font default


OKI printers tend to only print in the font size that you give it in the print options or the softwares printing properties that you are using, you will find that it just indicates the font size being printed if it changes back, this means it's set to 10 in the print properties or the actual programme print setting.
