I have a 7 year

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would seem you posted twice.

Based on your description, the printer is working, it is not a form issue, the printer head is good, an adjustment might be needed and it works, there is no reason to replace the Lexmark 2381plus printer even if it is 7 years old (not unless you would want to).

To the faint printing on the last of the 3 pages:
  • the take-up spool/wheel drawing the ribbon is not working (most likely). The ribbon is not moving hence the printer head is not striking fresh ribbon area. Check the ribbon cartridge, it may be stuck or the driving spindle where the ribbon's take-up spool/wheel locks into. It may need a bit of cleaning and/or lubrication;
  • the printer head is slightly adjusted away from the paper. Normally, there is a mechanical lever/adjustment that sets how many paper & duplicates are fed. Adjust for 1 only.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Printer Lexmark 2400 Forms Printer symbol issue

The page below is related to the 2480, as there is no listing at Lexmark for a 2400 (it is a series).
http://support.lexmark.com/static/229-1-0-71.html

Based on the description you have provided, I would suggest several resolutions are possible. If the printer is not powered through a UPS (or other power surge protected power supply), it could very well be caused by power fluctuations. This seems particularly possible given that resetting power alleviates the issue.

It is also possible that there may be a driver issue, especially if this occurs more often with certain types of documents or in particular processes. The page above is for a specific model, and references drivers for that model.

If this is not the proper model, and you can not find the proper model, an online chat (also accessible through that page) could possibly be the quickest way to resolution. Please let us know if you need further help, as there are numerous other sources for drivers, e.g., otherwise thanks for rating FixYa!

Fix page printing

Not Familiar with this printer particularly But if you reduce 'paper' size presumably the printer will reduce the image to fit. Did you try that?

Paper not pulling from tray 2 when tray 1 empties - Lexmark T654

For the majority of the Lexmark printers, all that needs to be done is to set the paper size and type the same for each drawer. Example - drawer 1 & 2 sizes are set to letter, drawer 1 & 2 paper types are set to plain. Set up this way, when drawer 1 empties, the printer will automatically switch to drawer 2 to supply the paper.

I have a lexmark p315 photo printer But haven't used for years tried printing with old cartridge which is still quite full but have not been able to print anything

The old cartridge might have dried up and then nothing would come out of it. Just try to softly clean the tip of the cartridge from where the ink or ink powder moves out and sometimes that might open it and if the inside material is still in good shape it might run.
