The print quality on my Dell printer is driving me crazy. The left and righthand edges are dirty. It looks as though a cog wheel in the printer is dirty but I have taken it apart (as best you can) and cleaned every nook and crany including the toner, toner casing and inside the actual printer itself but to no avail. Any more ideas? Jo
You need to inspect your drum unit as well. If you can line up the marks on your page with the drum then you will need to replace the drum unit.
If you donot find any problem with the drum unit then check the fuser unit on the back of the printer. Be very careful when checking the fuser since it is EXTREMELY hot.

The blinking exclamation point means that the cover to the printer is not closed all the way. Try opening and closing the cover to get rid of this error. If there is another picture like an ink drop or a sun that is also blinking at the same time then the error can mean something different.
Here is a link to your manual for your printer that includes troubleshooting erorr codes:
Printing Quality of Printer is Poor due to some reason... * the toner has low level of ink material... * some problem in the toner pad,,, * scratch are due to above two reasons and the problem in Roller of the printer....
To find your MAC address on the config page go to Standard Network Card then UAA (MSB, Canonical): you should have one or two sets of characters. the second set should be the MAC address to the printer. Hope this helps
Try these steps if this did not resolve try to clear the memory of the printer and try to print ..
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel. # Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right). # Continue doing this until it looks clean. # Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing. # Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier. 2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
Try using the Lexmark Print Server instead of the generic print server (if you use a Windows Server to share the printers). Also a new driver V2.0 was just released. Additionaly you can try to set 100 full duplex, but this is complex and has to be done at the printer, pressing a serie of buttons.
These printers are crap, we have constant problems with them.
