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.

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..
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
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.
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.
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
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)
