Lexmark C530dn Low Cartridge Message

July 3rd, 2009 by Kostakiss

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.
