1. Problem: - Magenta Streaking Issue.
Resolution: - Replace the drum (M6599) and the Magenta Developer (M6090)
More then likely this is caused by a defective magenta developer.

This is one of the 4 color assemblies you see when you remove the imaging drum.

The part number for the Magenta Developer is M6090

This is a very involved repair, and although i have actually instructed other how to change the part, it is only something you should attempt if you are somewhat mechanically inclined.

If you do get the part and wish to change it yourself, I can forward you the detailed instructions on how to remove and replace it.

Thanks,

Xerox 4620 is printing smears all over the page. I replaced the drum but it is still happening. Not sure what could cause this prblem


ask yourself this . Is the paper warm or hot when it has been printed on ?
check fuser unit .
No heat equals unbonded toner on paper equals smearing of toner on paper.

I have colored smears on left side of all my printed pages with my Brother MFC-9420 CN. What causes this?


It's not unusual for paper to hit the bottom of the print head, especially if the paper is bent. This can cause smearing. If you have pets, you can check for pet fur in the printer, or other foreign material inside that can also cause smearing.

First problem was the whole page was smearing when printing. I replaced the drum and there is still a little smearing. What can I try next?


smearing can be interpreted different ways. if paper stalls, it will cause "stretched" print. if the drive system is bogged down by a binding drum unit or toner, it can cause a "squished" print. if its just a "blurry" kind of print, it may be generic toner. since i can't actually see defect, i would say since you replaced drum already, toner would be easiest thing to do first. keep in mind also, generic toners have a fairly high failure rate.

HP laserjet 5000gn when i print, output smears ink on 2 sides. not a toner issue cause changed toners already. someone says printer is telling me something and might be a warning of


If by smearing you mean the print is also rubbing off? Then you definately have a fuser unit issue. The fusing unit is the assembly that heats up and "fuses" the toner onto the page. When these start to go bad, usually on one edge or the other the print will smear/double image/wipe off of the effected area. One test you can do to verify a fuser problem is to print a page and then when the page is about half way thru the prcess, shut the printer off. Open the top and remove the toner cartridge, pull out the page and see if the lower part is not smeared. Basically what your checking is to see if the print is ok BEFORE it goes thru the fuser. Based on your description I would suspect your fuser is going bad.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Colored ink is smearing on the page when I print


Did you change the toner?Developer unit? When did it occured?

FIRST: the copier must be cleaned and vacumed, it may be that toner falls onto transfer section and that causes the problem, you may also have problem with yellow developing unit or drum or transfer cleaning blade.

Canon i9900 isn't printing photo magenta


Use denatured alcohol to soak the print head. Then use suction to draw the alcohol back thru to the foam ports where the ink cartridges rest. Continue until the alcohol runs clear. Then use water and then repeat with alcohol. Allow to dry and re-install in printer. Use new ink cartridges when re-starting printing.

Nec picture turns megenta


I'm gonna take an educated guess and say this is a DLP projector. Sounds like the DLP wheel is slowing down causing blurriness and Magenta when the wheel stops. It probably needs a new color wheel. Call NEC and see if they have a bulletin or notice on this issue. If you're lucky, you might get a free new color wheel or replacement projector from them.
