Lexmark C530dn Low Cartridge Message


If you receive any warning that your Lexmark C530dn is running out of toner (Low Cartridge Message) for the first time just ignore it for a while. Especially when those are the very first cartridges. Your cartridge shall last for a while.

I got surprised when I noticed that I am running out of magenta toner without using the printer that much (especially for colour printing). With a bit of search around I noticed that it is rather a common problem and now I can confirm that I printed quite a lot of coloured pages using particularly the magenta colour. You need of course to remove the cartridge, shake it a bit, and place it back once per while, depending on the number of printings.

In general, I would say that I am happy with this printer, considering always the price I purchased it. I paid approximately GBP 300 (more than a year ago) for a fast colour laser printer, which benefits network connection and of course the fantastic duplex printing feature. And last but not least the 128 MB of memory.
