Hi there,
To improve print quality
1 On the operator panel, press Options repeatedly until
Cartridges appears.
2 Press the right arrow button until Align appears, and then press
Select.
An alignment page prints. Once the alignment sheet prints, your
automatic alignment is complete.
You may need to clean the print cartridge nozzles.
Using the operator panel
1
Load paper in the All-In-One.
2 Press Options until Cartridges appears on the display.
3 Press the right arrow until Clean appears on the display.
4 Press Select.
A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the
clogged nozzles.
5 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
6 Try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts, and then print your document again.
7 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles up to two more times.
Using the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center
1
Load plain paper in the All-In-One. 2 Click Start Programs Lexmark X5100 Series Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center.
3 Click the Maintenance tab.
4 From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks.
5 Click Print.
6 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved.
7 Try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts, and then print your document again.
8 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles up to two more times.
If the print quality does not improve after cleaning the print cartridge
nozzles, dried ink may be on the nozzles or contacts. To wipe the print
cartridge nozzles and contacts:
1 Remove the print cartridges.
2 Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with water.
3 Hold the cloth against the gold nozzle area for about three seconds.
Gently blot and wipe dry in one direction (this prevents the colors in
the color cartridge from mixing).
4 Remove the old cartridges
5 Let the nozzles and contacts dry completely.
6 Reinstall the print cartridges, and then print your document again.
7 If the print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print
nozzles up to two more times
8 If print quality is still unsatisfactory, replace your print cartridges.

Hope this helps.
Thanks
Have a good day.

I am positive there is no paper jam with my printer (Z2420) but message of paper jam still appears and it won't let me clear it.


Sometimes a very small piece of paper can still be in the printer paper path after clearing a jam especially if the paper tears while removing the jam. The piece of paper may be too small to notice. Try blowing out the paper area with compressed air. Other causes could be the thickness of paper you are trying to print on, ie photo paper, thicker bond paper. Make sure the print settings match the paper thickness. I have a Lexmark laser printer, and I will get feed problems if the settings are not set for the correct paper type.

I hope this helps.

202.16 ERROR


Hello,

The 202.16 error indicated that something is covering the exit sensor in the fuser assembly while the printer is warming up. This usually is caused by a piece of paper being left after a paper jam. First open the top of the printer and remove the toner cartridge, look inside for a piece of paper, if found remove it. put the toner back in and close the cover and press the "check" button to clear the error. If no paper is found then open the back of the printer and look for a piece of paper in the fuser assembly there, if found remove it. If you find a piece of paper in the fuser you will need to press the "check" button to clear the error and resume printing.

Here is a link to the Lexmark support page on this error.

Paper goes down crooked and won't print


Hi
Depending on where you live this may be 1 of 2 different problems. If you live in the part of the country that is now experiencing all this humidity then that is probably the problem. The paper has absorbed a lot of water. This happens to mine all the time. I keep the paper separate from the printer on these humid days. If not then the paper feed tire may be dirty or actually need replacing. To clean, take all the paper out of the machine, take a single piece of paper and pour a little rubbing alcohol on the end. Enough to cover about two inches of the leading edge. Allow most of the liquid to evaporate. Now put the piece of paper in the paper slot. Send any small print job to the printer. When the piece of paper begins to enter the printer, hold on to it to prevent its entry. The printer will error after a couple seconds, but the cleaning process should be complete. Take the paper out completely and discard. Reset the printer and fill the printer with fresh, dry paper. Printing should now be OK. If not the printer roller itself needs replacing. Good luck

Hello there
ok try this my help you.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Hi. I've just updated my Lexmark driver for uor


If there are no error messages, it sounds like you have some clogged nozzles caused by the lower quality of ink in refilled or aftermarket cartridges. There cartridge inks may not be up to specification. This is especially true for the ultra fine printers.
To clear the problem you need to insert an OEM cartridge, run the deep nozzle cleaning utiliity at least twice followed by the alignment utility. This should clear up the problem. .
Let me know if this solves your problem otherwise we can explore other solutiions. For the record, which operating system are you using?
Please rate this solution. Thanks.
