All my prints come out with a lot more yellow toner on the sides than in the middle of the paper.


Does the yellow tend to show heavy on one side, such as the at the edge of the paper?

Are you using Xerox ink? If not replace the ink and use Xerox ink.

This could also indicate that there is heavy build up within the printer head.

Try running internal cleaning function to see if that reduces or fixes the issue.

Let me know if that helps.

Why does the ink smear when I print on the back of hp paper


Basically it is a one sided paper like a one way street, mean to be used one side. It is only mean to be used one side..like a one way sponge soaks up the ink from closest side, turnover and it is blocked paper not able to soak up ink on the dull side.

5x7 inch paper moves towards end of print and black ink smudges edge of paper


Check for any small paper jam. Check the rollers, also use an alcohol swab to clean the rollers and check for ink leaking. Check you ink pad, it could be time for a new one.

Ink smudge on right side of paper


Chances are high that the process of clearing the jam has resulted in ink being released from the cleaning/resting pad area based over on the right hand side (where the printhead sits when not in use).
This waste ink has probable come into contact with the rollers and other parts over on the right edge of the paper.
You'll probably see this ink slowly fade out and disappear over time. If it doesn't however there's something effectively feeding things so check the resting pad for a loose tube, overflow, puddles, etc...
If there's anything like that, report back (preferably with images).

1. Get a damp paper towel.
2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
5. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
Good Luck!!!!!

My AIO 940 printer does not pull paper properly to print, it does not pull one side of the plain paper and creates a paper jam.


I was having the paper pull to the right. I opened the cover to expose the ink carriages. I found sticky black ink on the platform under the ink. I used a towel and rubbing alcohol to clean off any excess ink. I believe that the sticky ink buildup on the left side did not allow the paper to feed properly. All seems to be well. Hope this helps.

The paper is grabbing from only one side. It is


Hello this some times works Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Won't align because it says that the "paper is too narrow".


On the right side of the carriage at the bottom is where the media sensor is. If you dampen a q-tip with water and wipe the underside of that sensor you will see ink come off onto the q-tip. That sensor is on the right side of the ink carrier and the light shines down onto the paper. The lens gets covered with ink and needs cleaning...
