Question about Samsung CLP-510 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printouts have type ghosting

My printouts have light ghosted imprinting of previously printed pages. The red rollers in the fuser have the same imprinted sections. Do I need to clean these red rollers? Dose the fuser need to be replaced? Each printout is getting worse and I also just had a jam located in the fuser roller.

    Inky - Your first sentence, 'Change the fuser unit if you have to hand.' Don't understand...??? I understand the changing the fuser unit part, but not the rest of the sentence. 
    Can this fuser roller assembly be readily found on a parts site? In the meantime I will check the transfer roller for similar ghosting.
    Thanks

    Where do I get a fuser unit? Are they readily available on parts sites? Thanks for your help.
    I have 2 of these CLP-510's in house. The other one is telling me to replace the imaging unit and transfer belt soon, so I'll be shopping for those too.

Change the fuser unit if you have to hand. The problem is likely caused by a lack of pressure from the pressure roller. Also check the transfer roller for a similar ghost image.

    Sorry for my (tired head & full of flu) utterings. I simply mean, if you have a spare fuser unit to hand, you should change it as this is most likely the cause of your ghost.

    Your best bet for the supplies you require would probably be to simply search your local google pages. All three consumables will be quite expensive and you may want to consider removing the fuser from the machine that requires the image unit and transfer belt to make one good machine from the two. It may (and I stress MAY) be cheaper to replace the printer than the parts it requires.

    In the UK the sum of the parts is almost £300 which is almost enough to buy a replacement A4 colour laser printer.

Hp 5550 patchy print


Most of the cases fuser assembly or supplies are causes of ghost image. If image is not properly transferring on media causes transfer roller or ETB.
Do this small exercise: Give print command, wait till paper grabs, once paper entered in cartridge area, power it off, open top & front cover, remove paper and see the print quality.Observed any ghost image what you observed? No ghost image? then problem with fuser assembly..

1.Remove fuser assembly, check any toner particles deposited on surface of fuser transfer roller or heater roller.. if found clean carefully with good cotton cloth while fuser having certain temperature,pl avoid metal & sharp objects to clean..
2. Clean paper path roller(You can observe the rollers to push the paper to reach the destination)
I hope this exercise will resolves the issue..

After changing the ink catridges and resetting the drum fuse lately (note: it is known that the fuse will be blown off after certain number of prints but otherwise is in good condition), my Epson Acculaser...


The repeating image is a ghost image, and here is described what it can be. Probably if you solve this, you also solve the red-dot problem. If possible, I would suggest to replace the wiper blade.
Repeating images on laser printerThis likely means a faint ghost of the main printout at a distance equal to the circumference of one of the rollers or photosensitive drum.

Depending on where the problem originates, this could be a bad wiper (cleaning) blade, faulty corona, or incomplete fusing.


  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of the photosensitive drum, it is a wiper blade, erase lamp, or corona problem.A residual latent image or residual toner is sticking to the drum and not being properly cleared.

  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of one of the fuser rollers, then the fusing may not be complete due to damaged rollers or an incorrect temperature setting.

It is easy to determine where the problem is located: Interrupt a printout in mid-stride (where part of the paper is between the toner/developer and fuser. If the un-fused image has ghosting, it is a fault in the area of the drum

My samsung ML 2510 prints a black streak on each plus a watermark from previous page


If your paper setting are set corectly (normal paper) and you are getting a "ghost image" from the previous page, most likley the fuser is the problem. On rare occasions, the drum unit could be the culpret (Black lines) down the sides of the page as you indicated.
You may have 2 problems.

I would change the toner drum 1st. If the black lines go away ,yet the ghost image continues, then change the fuser as well.

I'm getting ghost images on multi prints to the point it is unreadable, is this the drum or fuser?


The only way to tell is to start a print and power off when print is still inside. If you see the ghost before the fuser it's the drum, if clean before the fuser, it's the fuser. You can also open the back door and look at the fuser roller with a light, the fuser roller should be clean but if the roller has images it's time for a fuser.

Lexmark t520 suddenly prints poor quality, i.e. the previous page prints softly onto the next page and the right side of the page (2" from right) is streaked with toner. Please help. TIA, Mike


this sounds like you have a fuser problem look at the fuser and see if it has toner build up on the rollers ghost printing can be caused by the toner cartridge or the fuser. this would indicate that your fuser isnt maintaining enough heat for complete fusing. is you take the rear covers off and run your print job. look to the far left side of the fuser and you will see the heat lamp lit up. this light should cycle on every 1 1/2 pages or so. any longer than that and it wont keep up with the print job

Xerox 6350 prints ghost page every page printed. It is printing a ghost imge of the previous document printed on every page.


If the ghost is black then you might have a bad Black Developer 116-2011-00

If the ghost is in all colors then it may be your fuser, or possibly just your paper settings. (If you are using glossy paper or card stock this needs to be fed from the MPT tray and defined correctly in the control panel)

Good luck!

Sounds like the transfer roller or the fuser unit may be faulty. Look at the fuser to see if the roller surfaces are dirty. If so, replace the fuser.
