Lexmark Cn and Cdn aimed at "Outstanding value in network-ready, colour laser printer for small workgroups". They were introduced in October to reinforce the product line created by the C52x series. The Cn was best suited to home and small office use, paper is fed from a tray or a manual feed slot. The Cdn aims more at office use, it has more of the features of the C but not the ability to use high yield cartridges. One of the distinguishing features between versions of recent printers is the value-proposition given by purchase price and running cost.

Lexmark Cn and Cdn aimed at "Outstanding value in network-ready, colour laser printer for small workgroups". They were introduced in October to reinforce the product line created by the C52x series. The Cn was best suited to home and small office use, paper is fed from a tray or a manual feed slot. The Cdn aims more at office use, it has more of the features of the C but not the ability to use high yield cartridges.
One of the distinguishing features between versions of recent printers is the value-proposition given by purchase price and running cost. Other printers in the series have a numeric keypad used to enter a PIN and release jobs from the print queue. The C also has Pictbridge. The Cdn version has a tray and a multipurpose slot as well as the auto-duplex ability to print double sided. The Cn costs less to buy than the C The trade-off is that it takes smaller cartridges so printing costs are a bit higher.
There is a lot of commonality of parts but the C high capacity cartridges can't be used in the C and Transfer Belt for the C53X is different to that for the C52X. The printers have abilities to take options such as the sheet paper drawer. There are four print cartridges arranged in a vertical stack delivering toner onto paper travelling on a transfer belt.
Paper emerges through a fuser at the top. The paper can be reversed in the fuser exit roller and travel through a duplex path running down the front of the printer. Direction arrows for menu navigation on all models. The LCD gives status messages, supplies messages and help screens. There are four navigation direction buttons and a centre button marked with a tick for "Select" or Go.
The rating for the C is higher, presumably because the larger cartridges give fewer cartridge insertion forces and suchlike. By changing the grey-scale intensity, area or length of dots laser printers can give higher apparent resolutions in colour pictures so Lexmark claim Colour Quality x dpi.
Print Resolution, Black x dpi. Standard Ports. Lexmark make a Volt model for Japan, a volt model for North America and a Volt model for the rest of the world.
The main changes are the fuser and the wiring of the PSU. The printer takes toners frequently, photoconductors less frequently, a waste toner box sometimes. It also needs a transfer belt and a fuser. As with most colour laser printers a CMYK process is used. Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK. A toner is needed for each colour. Users will often find that they use much more black than other toners simply because black text is much more readable and therefore most pages use more of it.
Because the C, C and C belong to a series which offers printers for low to mid volume use there are different toner options. The small toner cartridges fit the whole range - but don't offer particularly attractive economics. The higher model number printers can take small cartridges but they can also take a cartridge intended to offer lower cost per page.
These printers give a warning that toner is low. The user manual suggests removing and shaking cartridges to get a bit more printing ability from them until print is persistently faded. C, C, C, C When the message "82 Waste Toner Box Neatly Full" appears it is nearing time to replace the box so make sure one is on order. When "82 Replace waste toner box " appears the box must be changed.
A replacement photoconductor will shortly be needed. The single pack will suit situations where there is a big difference between black and colour use. The 4 pack will suit people doing mainly colour printing. The printer gives a message " Transfer belt life warning" when it is time to order a new belt. The actual remaining life is determined by environment, duty cycle and toner coverage. Be aware that although new belts can usually be delivered in a day or two shortages are possible.
Changing the transfer belt may change the alignment of the toner cartridges. The user manual recommends running the alignment procedure. Details are given in the user manual. The printer gives a "fuser life" message when the fuser will soon need replacing. When the message "Replace fuser" appears the fuser needs replacing. Lexmark original fusers have some documentation accompanying them. Lexmark rather unusually make three different fusers for different regional voltages.
Order the correct one which is V in Europe. The printer will need the print cartridges, drums, transfer belt and fuser at intervals. The other parts regularly required are the pick rollers. Trays are vulnerable because paper is heavy and parts can snap. The C can take an extra sheet tray. The RAM can be upgraded as well, which will help if the printer sometimes slows down unduly on complicated pages. Some pictures derived from Lexmark User and Service guides.
