20 Most Recent Lexmark T520 Laser Printer Questions & Answers

Do the streaks get fainter as you print more pages?

It sounds to me like have toner on your rollers/fuser.

Print out 10 prints from the printer and see if it improves.

If you remove the fuser wiper cover from the top of the printer and look down you will see part of the fuser roller (DON'T TOUCH VERY HOT) and check if there is toner on it.

922 Fuser Error messages indicate that the fuser unit failed to reach the standby temperature.
  • If this is the first time you have seen the error, turn the printer off and on. Leave the printer off for at least 10 seconds before turning it back on. This gives the printer's engine board a chance to reset.
  • If this is an intermittent error, you may want to check how the printer is plugged in, even if it has worked on this surge device for months. Make sure the printer is plugged straight to the wall and not through a surge device or power strip. Power strips and uninterrupted power supplies can cause a low amperage problem in your printer which can trigger a false fuser error.
  • If this does not help or if this error appears every time the printer is powered on, you will probably need service on the machine. I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support.

    Hello thanks for using Fixya

    A 929 Service Toner Sensor error indicates a problem with the toner sensor, the front harness cable, or the developer drive. It could also mean that the toner cartridge is defective.

    The most likely cause of this error is the toner cartridge itself. This is especially true if it is a new cartridge and the error started after you installed it.
    To solve it try this:

    Take the cartridge out of the printer and locate the encoder wheel on the right-hand side of the cartridge. The encoder wheel can be found on the right side of the cartridge (usually over a bar code sticker). It is a thin, black, plastic wheel with small rectangular notches cut into it. This wheel will sometimes get stuck, but you can free it by turning it by hand.
    Try moving the wheel forwards and backwards a little. If it does not turn correctly, you will receive a 929 Toner Sensor error on the printer when you try to use the cartridge it is attached to
    Note: The encoder wheel moves only a little bit each way. It should not make a complete revolution. If it does, the wheel is probably broken.
    Try to move it a little bit each way a couple of times to see if you can free it up. Caution! DO NOT force the wheel as you could break it.
    If the wheel on the toner cartridge is stuck, try another new toner cartridge. ( If you do not have another new toner cartridge available, an old toner cartridge or another cartridge from a working printer of the same model will also suffice for this test.)
    Power the printer off and install the second toner cartridge. Then power the printer back on. If another toner cartridge clears up the 929 error, the printer is fine and the problem is with the toner cartridge.
    If the error does not clear, there may be a problem with the printer.
    If you narrow down the problem to the toner cartridge, call the point of purchase and explain the situation to them. They may have a replacement policy.
    If you receive this error with a second toner cartridge, you may want to check if the Front Harness Cable is plugged into the Toner Sensor then Do the following:

    Turn off the printer and remove the toner cartridge.
    Look inside the printer at the place where the cartridge goes (on the right). You should see the Toner Sensor. On the back of the sensor assembly, you should be able to see a white cable connector.
    Push this white cable connector into the toner sensor assembly by pushing the connector towards the front of the printer.
    If you continue to receive the 929 error the final option is your printer will probably need service.

    Printing is a function of the software that you are using. If for instance you are using Word, you change the print size by clicking on the font size feature. Usually a small window up in the right corner on the tool bar indicates the size of the font, but there are other ways of getting to it. The number lower means smaller, for instance 12 is normal print where 25 is very very large. look around on your printing software.

    Did you replace the toner cartridge with a Lexmark new or factory refurbished cartridge?

    If not, then more than likely that's your problem. Lexmark put smart chips in the cartridges that prevents there re-use unless these chips were either replaced or scrubbed clean.

    If this is a factory new or refurbished cartridge, contact Lexmark.

    If you disable the MP feature in settings that'll fix it or change the print priority to tray 1.

    Most likely has something to do with the sensor the pick arm's flag. Try to check if the flag is moving freely. If it is, the sensor may need replacement.
