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.

Black ink smears when printing out


I am afraid that Dennis (Writing below) is correct, When you have smearing it is a print head problem and they need to be replaced, If you have had this printer for many years (HP GOOOD Printer) you should check prices on a new machine, the reason for that is that HP has discontinued support on many machines as of 1 Jan 2013, If you can find a print head for your system it may be half the price of a new machine, Also; if one print head is going it may not be long before you see the same problem on the one or more color print head. It is probably not what you were hoping to hear but right now HP has several really good systems on sale,

Ink smears on photo prints- in never dries. This is a new problem,


HP ink is water soluble. It comes off or smears onto a damp finger. So now I have an issue with HP.

Failure to Allign


This could be the Fuser Assembly. The Fuser is the unit that heats up and makes the toner ahere to the paper. The fact that it is smearing, means that the Fuser is not heating correctly. I would call for service on it.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

HP Photosmart C3180 color printing problems


This can sometimes be a printer problem or bad quality ink. However I have known this to happen with corrupt printer drivers. Try uninstalling the printer via ControlPanel>AddRemove Programs and then re-installing it.
