Question about Lexmark Optra E310 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Light printing. The printer is a real workhorse! Had it since 2000! Now it is printing light; is there anything as far as setting are concerned, or should I change the cartridge? It was changed not more than a month ago, I don't print that much. A cartridge usually lasts me for about a year. Thanx for your help!

Try cleaning the transfer roller.

take out the cartridge look inside at a black roller kind of spongy

clean it with a clean lint free cloth.

It could be that the toner is bad if it's a generic, did it start when you put in the new one?

Epson wf-7520 power light, auto answer light & wi-fi light blink

As far as the wifi is concerned, try getting it connected to your home network. Once it gets connected, go into your network settings and try to get the IP address. If you can obtain that, you should be able to add a network printer using TCP/IP port. Also, see if you can factory reset the printer, and start the setup all over.

I fixed the problem. I kept checking and rechecking making sure everything on my computer was working correctly using any free resources I could locate. I concluded it had to be the printer. I purchased a new Canon Printer and "YAHOO" it workded perfectly.

Epson DFX-9000 dot matrix printer not printing far right column

It probably is a margin setting. Can you try printing on a blank w-2 and preview it before printing. That way you should be able to adjust the margin as needed.

My printer does not print

Try using the utilities of your printer, clear the heads and align them. This usualy happens when the cartridges are new. Maybe the problem is that previous cartridges where empty and the new ones need alignment.
This is just a proposal though i need more information concerning your truoblshooting.
Are the cartridges OEM HP or reconstructed?
When you try to print the green light flashes or not?

My printer won't print. Can't get the Print light to turn off.

I downloaded the manual. It showed how to solve print light problems. There was some paper caught in the system.

It now works! Thanks for your concern.

Canon bjc 240/orange light stays on

The blinking orange light could mean one or more of the following: -Home position error -Waste ink full error -Temperature sensor error -Printing position correction error -Cleaning error -Printer memory error I would probably clean the waste ink tank first. Make sure you unplug it first. Take the cartridge out and clean real good at the bottom.
