    Yeah, my phaser 6120 has never printed properly. The ink smudges no matter the settings and I have tried them all. I purchased this printer especially for printing postage labels and color prints and can do neither. Very expensive and very expensive toner replacements. Should I just junk it and kick out $$$ to buy another brand? And what brand would you suggest. Thank you kindly, Tracey

On the fuser (under the top cover), there are 2 green levers with envelopes on them. The one on the right is probably flipped up. The purpose of these levers is to decrease pressure on the paper when printing on envelopes which are 2 or 3 layers of paper. It reduces the wrinkling that occurs when printing envelopes on most laser printers. Flip that lever down and you're golden.

Left side low printing


--Check the ink level in your ink cartridge.
--Another cause of uneven printing on a page could be that the ink cartridge is not properly installed.
--Check your paper to make sure it is loaded properly and it is not wet, dirty or crumpled.
--Sometimes a toner cartridge is not inserted properly and in fact, is "lopsided" which will produce uneven toner distribution on your page.

My CLP-350 Samsung printer only prints black ink on half the page! While the other colours all print perfectly, the black ink prints strong and clear on the right side of the page but as you approach the...


Here is my solution, hope it will solve your problem.

From your post, I believe your CLP-350N printer has enough black toner. The black cartridge is on the far right side of the printer, so the black toner is harder to go to left side of the roller than right side. Everytime we start the printer, it will move some toner of each color to the roller before it shows ready to print.

Because we always use B&W printing when we start the printer, but less Color printing. The result is there are always enough toner on the 3 color rollers, but the black toner is lean on the black roller. When this gets worse, the left side of the black roller may hardly get any toner at all -- so it only print black on the right side fo paper.

Step by step solution
(CAUTION: Never loss balance while tilting printer! You may drop and damage your printer! Hold the printer firmly all the time! Ask someone to help you if needed!)

Here, front of the printer is where you can access the cartridge, back of the printer is where you connect the power cord and USB cable, left is your left, right is your right.

1.Lift the front to keep the printer tilt to its back at about 45 degree
2.Power on printer while it's tilted back, wait untill green light is on
3.Open the front door, red light will be on, then close the door, printer will start up again,wait untill green light is on
4.Repeat step 3 once again, then put the printer back to level position
5.Lift the right to keep the printer tilt to its left at about 45 degree
6.Open the front door, red light will be on, then close the door, printer will start up again, wait untill green light is on
7.Repeat step 6 once again, then put the printer back to level position
8.Print some test page to see if there is any improvement of black print quality.(Hold the printer button for 3-5 seconds, it will print the test page.)

You may try several times and print several pages each time before you finally cure the problem.

Good luck! And do it safely!

PICTURE IS SMUGGED


If you're printing on photo paper, make sure you are printing on the correct side. Most photo paper has only one side to print on, the other side is a non-porous backing, and ink will sit on the surface until it dries (15 - 30 minutes, depending on temperature and humidity). And it won't look good even when it dries.

If you're printing on the correct side, try a different brand/type of photo paper.

Printing is not clear on the right side of the printed paper. Even when a new ink cartridge is installed the printing is not very readable on the right side of the printed paper.


Ok try this...... Somewhere around the toner bottle, should be a piece of glass covering the laser from getting toner in it, remove the glass and clean it. Let me know if this works.

Dirty printing


The cause of this is a faulty toner cartridge. What happened was some toner spilled out of the cartridge and down into your printer. Take the toner cartridge out and with a damp paper towel just goto town and wipe everything down.

Replace the toner cartridge, and in about 20 pages it should clear up.
