Clearly bad toner cartridge. After long periods of time, the cleaning blade dries out. This cleaning blade works just as the wiper blades of your car. When they wear or dry out, you get streaking water lines in the windshield. Most manufacturers print an expiration date on the consumables wichi you can check before purchasing. Also try not to stock more consumables than those you plan to use within 6 months.

We have installed in our office a Canon MF8330Cdn printer. Every page that is printed now have a vertical line down the entire length of the page about 1" from the left hand edge of the page. Can you...


Her are somethings to try.
  1. Paper jam
  2. Bad toner cartridge or bad toner.
  3. Clean the corona wire (see the manual)
  4. Drum is wearing out and needs to be replaced.
Sometime a small piece of paper can get jammed in the toner cartridge roller and cause this type of problem.
Also, often this seen with after market toner cartridges or refilled cartridges. Poor quality or old toner will clump inside the cartridge roller wiper blade. Just like dirt under the wiper blade on an auto, it will leave streak on the toner roller that are transfered to the print drum.
Take a look at the toner cartridge first and inspect the long black roller. If the streaks are there then you need a new cartridge.
If no on the roller streaks try to clean the corona wires.
Also inspect the drum to see if has streak. Try wiping drum with soft tissue paper to see if it come off or is etched into drum.

Open top cover and remove toner, shake toner cartridge and try a test print. IF image good then problem is low toner level in cartridge.

Smasung ML2510 Laser print quality poor especially on graphics


Full isn't always the answer, in order to refill a cartridge properly you need to also replace the cleaning blade inside. The blade wears out and doesn't clean the drum properly and also lets toner leak all over. Your best bet is a new OEM cartridge, or put a new cleaning and Dr. blade in yours.

Printed pages look terrible...


I'm more familiar with HP printers, but it sounds like a fuser is bad. The fuser effects print quality as well. If you've replaced the toner, as you have.

It prints vertical lines where the text is.


check your drum unit. The toner cartridge mounts into the drum which can be permanently charged causing a constant streak to occur.

Solution:
Remove the toner and drum unit. Clean them off with a non-fuzzy non-rough cloth or paper towel. Pay particular attention to where the streaks are in relation to the toner cartridge and drum. If you clean it off and you still get streaks check whether they transfer from the toner or just from the drum.

There may be a way to discharge the drum, otherwise you need a new drum.

SAMSUNG SCX 4100 PRINTING PROBLEM


I am facing the same issue, but its related to Copy (not Print).

The carriage/CCD Light in the scanner is stuck in its original position, causing a scanner error, and all I get are 3/2 vertical lines on the page. Some time I also get an empty page out.
