Marks on right margin

Hi, each page that prints out has three marks on the right margin--I guess something got onto the, um, roller the paper goes around. But I can't see it and a) don't know how to look at it more thoroughly and 2) don't know what to use to clean it if I find something to clean off and 3) don't know if it could be something else completely different tht you know of?

Oce 7051 plain copier has dust or something on one of the rollers - prints have a trail of marks across sheet, repeating every 10 inches from top to bottom of page. Probably need to remove or access...


If the drum has marks on it, you might have to replace it.  Sometimes the fuser rollers can leave marks on them as well.
Check for lines on the drum first.  If they are there, it could need a drum replacement.

Marks on printed sheet


Toner powder is so fine that it hides under parts that you can't see. By all means, DO NOT blow it out with canned air! Get a vacuum with a fine filter that can hold toner and remove the toner cartridge. Then vacuum out the inside of the printer as thoroughly as possible. Especially clean out along the paper path and where the cartridge goes in. It may still print a few dirty pages, but after several pages, it should go away.

Roller marks on paper


Hi, Sounds like your problem is not the rollers. If its marked on the pages, its not the pickup rollers nor the Exit rollers that leave marks.

Either 1 you have a bad Toner Cartridge. or 2 Fuser sleeve is bad and needs to be replaced.

(1) If the toner cartridge is refurbished that is your first indication that you should replace with a HP Manufactured Toner. Refurbished toners always go bad. In fact many of them do not even last the amount they are said to last.

(2) If its not the toner cartridge, then the only other thing that is fusing roller marks is the fuser. In order to do this. You will have to remove the back panel. Unscrew the fuser.*note fuser can be extremely hot after use. be careful.* From this point you should be able to look at the Fuser sleeve and see a worn out sleeve on the side which your roller marks are at. You will either need to replace it if it looks bad. Or you can clean it when its got with a piece of paper or an alcohol pad to remove excess toner clocked on the fuser.


That toner is whats showing up as roller marks on your prints.


I hope this helps. PLEASE RATE Porfavor :)

Printing blank page at the end of every printing job


Hi Keren,

1) Are you sure it is the printer, not the software application ?

Try printing a single "Hello World" message from "Notepad"

If there is no blank page at the end of it, the problem is in
the specific software app: Office, Word, Excel, etc...


2) What application are you printing from?

a) Check the page and print setup.

b) Make sure the application's "page size" and the printer's
paper size are consistent. Pay special attention to
metric paper sizes vs English:

E.g. A4 vs Letter

If the page with margins is bigger than the paper, it will
generate a new page, even though there are no visible
characters on it.

c) Check the print margins within the page setup:
In MS-Office: File ---> Page Setup --->

d) Add a single character to the very bottom of your
document, and see if it wraps around onto the last page.

Microsoft office applications are notorious for wrapping
the last PARAGRAPH character onto the next page if
it does not quite fit onto the paper.

e) if you are using MS WinWord, go into options and set it
to display all special characters:

Check to make sure that there are no page-breaks at
the end of the document.

Also look for extra paragraph marks/ carriage returns,
and check the format settings on the last paragraph
mark in the document:

Page brake before...
Keep lines together ....
Widow and orphan control ...

which can cause the last paragraph mark to generate a
new page. If the last paragraph mark is not formatted
the way you want it, make sure that you save the
TEMPLATE after you change it, since this is the
DEFAULT setting for all new documents.

Finally it is also possible for Windows applications to look
different on the screen than the final print due to small
(but cumulative) True Type Font (TTF) computation erros,
such that a 10 page document on the screen can actually
page-split in weird places printing as 11 pages.

====
I have the identical model of printer, and it does NOT seem
to have any settings for printing banners or adding separator
pages, at least not in my printer driver, but this is NOT to say
that the applications you are using are not causing this
problem.

I hope this gets you started.

Please rate my answers.

An inch wide streak appears on the right side of a laser printer printed page.


If you can rub the toner off the paper it is the fuser.

fuser, the part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the
medium. It consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner
is transferred to the paper, the fuser applies heat and pressure to
ensure that the toner stays on the paper permanently. This is why
paper is warm when it comes out of a laser printer.

For toner problem:

Do a half test as follows -
Print one sheet from the fold down tray, just as the trailing edge of the paper
goes into the printer open the toner door to stop the printer. Remove the toner
cartridge, are the marks on the paper that you can see in the printer? If they
are there the cartridge needs replacing.

Grey Band/lines across page


your problem could be one of many things first try stoping the copy half way in the machine. to do this open the front door and cheat the door switch with some folded up paper or use a flat screw driver to bypass the switch. make a copy and watch the paper when in goes into the drum and starts to come out like 3 inches pull the screw driver or paper out of the switch. carefully pull the paper out from the machine and see if the image is ok. if the marks are there the problem is with the drum. if the image is clear and there is no marks then open the left door on the copier and inspect the rollers in the heat unit. to do this open the left door the front door has to be open to do this. there is a little green lever on the right side pull this down and look at the 2 roller if you see marks on the top roller or dirt on the lower roller this is your problem. also check the miliage reading on the drum if there is a sticker and check the meter on the machine the drum is rated for 55,000 copies.
