SOURCE: Dell 3100cn-smudge

The print toner cartridge has a small trap door that opens to let the toner adhere to the paper. Remove the toner cartridge and locate this moveable panel on it. This roller is VERY sensitive, and can scratch VERY easy. Use a soft LINT FREE cloth to GENTLY wipe the colored roller if you see any toner build up. If that does not clear up the problem you will need to replace your Fuser Unit which will need to be ordered from Dell or a 3rd party supplier. Its a pretty easy process, and instructions usually come with the fusers. If you have a printer warranty they will fix it for you. Thanks! //CowboysfanZ

SOURCE: When I print labels the sheet is smudged using

Due to the thickness of label stock it can take more heat to fuse the toner than when you use normal paper.

1 You MUST use labels that are suitable for laser printers.

2 When printing on labels, you'll probably put them (face down) in the MPF 'tray' in the door, and make sure you choose Label as your paper type under Printing Preferences, Paper Tray, MPF Settings

SOURCE: ON MY DELL 1700 PRINTER THERE ARE BLACK SMUDGES ON

Normally this is caused by the drum cartridge that fits under the toner. Replacing this drum cartridge will clear up the black marks on your print. Use this Dell Part# : A0373010 to order. After replacing the drum cartridge counter will have to be reset, Use the following steps.
1. Open the front door.
2. Press and hold the cancel button (x button) until all the lights flash in order.
3. Then close the front cover.
This will reset the drum counter.

Ive just bought this printer from currys & im trying to print a picture from my memory sd card & the picture is coming out all smudged? could it be because im not using photographic paper?


You should be able to select the paper type you use before starting the print. The printer should optimise the print to match the paper you have specified. If the paper is not for photos, it shouldn't matter too much unless the ink is taking too long to dry. It is more likely that your print heads are skimming the paper or something is brushing the image while the ink is still wet.

Smudge line on side of page


Smudges are most likely from the toner cartridge. If you can take your finger and run over the print and it smudges, then it is the fuser.

My dcp165c printer print quality prints black & yellow colour. i clean print head through maintance 76 but problem cannot be solved


How is the printer printing black and yellow color? Is it a smudge?

When I print, the pages are smudged with ink. What should I do?
Description:
- If smudged stains appear at the top center of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not too thick or curled.
    Also, verify that the appropriate paper is being used and that the paper type set in the machine matches the media used.
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear at the right or left corner of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear on the reverse side or at the bottom of the page:

Trying to find the answer to this problem.....Help!@! --can't print 4x6 picture on dell 3110cn


First question:

Does this printer support a paper size of 4x6?

Are you using a 8x10 sheet that you want several images placed on it?

How does the failure manifest itself? For example, do you see an error code on the printer?

Dell 3100cn (color printer): color smudging


Smuding typically occurs when you print on a heavier paper without changing the settings. By changing the settings to a thick paper type, the page will be send through the printer more slowly. this will likely eliminate the smudging.

Cheers.

Black smudges on printed page


Are you sure this is a Designjet 450 (large format printer) and not a Deskjet 450 (portable printer)? The following assumes you have wispy black streaking on the printed side of the paper. If the streaking is on the back side then post more details of the printer model and the issue.

In either case the most likely cause is a buildup of fibers on the underside of the printheads or carriage, causing wisps of black ink to be dragged on the paper when the carriage reverses direction. You can clean the printer as shown at the following (though the details will be somewhat different for the Designjet or Deskjet....).
