Toshiba 3550 Copier - Printing a faint ''gray'' band over text

I have a Toshiba 3550 copier that's printing a faint gray band (about 3 inches wide) over the text that I'm trying to copy. When I open up the copier I can see that the drum needs to be cleaned but have no idea how to go about doing this and am leery about somehow messing up the drum. Thanks in advance for the help!

Depending on how many copies you have run, the drum as well as the cleaning blade needs to be replaced.  That should get rid of the gray band.

My HP 3550 deskjet will simply not print. It goes through the motions and seems to be printing --but the page is blank or very faint. I have already cleaned and re-calibrated the printer


Check ink-levels -- no ink means no printing.
Run a few more "print-head-cleaning" cycles -- clogged ink-jets cannot spray ink onto the paper.

Bad Printing and Stripes on Printed Sheets on HP 1100A


It isn't a fuzer problem it is most likly a image drum problem. To fix you have two choices replace the image drum with a oem part or a refurbished part or replace the printer. sometimes it is cheaper to get a replacement printer than to replace this part.

4. Push Print
5. Change the current value from 1or 2 to become 0
