Question about Dell A920 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Text becomes unreadable after one page of printing

When printing a document, the first page prints fine and then the print becomes illegible (faded and blurry) on subsequent pages. If I print on a higher quality setting, the text fades completely. This only occurs with the black ink which has a nearly full cartridge. HELP!

    The printer is an A920. I've cleaned the black print cartridge, is there another "cleaning program" I can run? If so, how can I access it? Thanks.

I have a brother laser printer that prints one page fine, but subsequent pages fade to nothing. any solutions?


That sounds like maybe a printer cartridge problem. Perhaps the ink flow is not working properly.

Pages are printing, but part of the page has really light, some unreadable printing while rest of page is fine. What do I need to do/change?


If the colors on printed and copied documents are too light, blurry or not as bright as expected follow the steps listed below:
1. Verify the toner save mode is turned Off. When you set the toner save feature to On, print appears lighter.
a. Press Menu, 1 (General Setup), 6 (Ecology), 1 (Toner Save).
b. Press the up or down arrow key to select OFF and then press OK.
c. Press Stop/Exit.
2. Print a document from your computer or print a demo page by pressingthe FAX and COPY keys at the same time.

Fading cartridge problems


That printer is pretty old. Are you selecting "Best" quality when you print or is it possible that some documents are being printed in Quick Print mode (which puts less ink on the page)? If you're doing the same thing on each print job but the print quality changes, there's definitely a problem. If you're printing from web pages, the print quality may be a factor of the design of the pages. If you print two pages of a multi-page document and quality declines, you should be able to get help through Lexmark's technical support.

Faded print on one side of page


I have a SCX-4100 Samsung, replaced the tonger cartridge, it was working fine for a few hundred sheets of printing, but after that, the left side of the page was printed very light, faded.
If I run the "Clean Drum", it will print a litter better, but still faded.
What can I do to correct this problem?
Thank you

Prints a few lines, then blank


This is worth attempting to discuss with Lexmark's Tech Support line. Or take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com
