SOURCE: roller marks on paper

Hi, Sounds like your problem is not the rollers. If its marked on the pages, its not the pickup rollers nor the Exit rollers that leave marks.

Either 1 you have a bad Toner Cartridge. or 2 Fuser sleeve is bad and needs to be replaced.

(1) If the toner cartridge is refurbished that is your first indication that you should replace with a HP Manufactured Toner. Refurbished toners always go bad. In fact many of them do not even last the amount they are said to last.

(2) If its not the toner cartridge, then the only other thing that is fusing roller marks is the fuser. In order to do this. You will have to remove the back panel. Unscrew the fuser.*note fuser can be extremely hot after use. be careful.* From this point you should be able to look at the Fuser sleeve and see a worn out sleeve on the side which your roller marks are at. You will either need to replace it if it looks bad. Or you can clean it when its got with a piece of paper or an alcohol pad to remove excess toner clocked on the fuser.


That toner is whats showing up as roller marks on your prints.


I hope this helps. PLEASE RATE Porfavor :)

Try cleaning the laser lens using the laser lens cleaning wand. However, it is likely that your black cartridge needs to be replaced based on the troubleshooting from the Minolta manual. Sorry,

When we attempt to print it leaves black streak marks. At first it printed all black and when we went to setup under maintainence we chose alignment and clean cartridges. This worked however we still see...


If an inkjet printer gives white streaks where it should be black, it means the ink is very low, or there is dirt under the nozzles preventing it from printing properly, or, in the case of non original cartridges, ink might be leaking which prevents the bubbles of ink to squirt onto the page.

If the streaks are black where it should be white, is sounds like some dust or fluff below the cartridge leaves ink smears on the page.

Printed pages are smeared with black


Sounds like a bad toner, or possibly the scanner is dirty. If you look where it pulls the paper through it can have a small speck, but since its on the scanner tself it will put black lines all the way down the paper.
If its larger and smeared the Toner itself is probably bad and you need a new Toner Kit, should come with new rollers and a new cartridge as well.

When documents print out, one side of the copy is smeared. We cleared out a paper jam and I think part of the lining of the roller came off.


Smeared output can result when you refeed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing parts, this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner or you can clean the rollers with rubbing alcohol.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

Finally, if this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; toner that is not heated properly will fall from the page and smear. If the thermostat is bad or the fuser not working properly, you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

Getting horizontal red streaks across printed page


The drum roller is damaged. You must be careful and spin the cylinder. do not touch the roller. You probably have a line in the roller that causes this issue. Each time i have seen this problem, this was the cause.

assembly.
2. Reseat any printer component interfering or
touching the drum assembly.
If there are streaks on the front side only of a

test to check the paper preheater’s
temperature.
3. Is the operating temperature within the

Horizontal streaks on pages


Streaks at 2.82 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the fusing roller of the printer. In some cases, these marks can be cleared up by running a cleaning page through the unit. Laser Printer Cleaning sheets can be purchased at your local printer/office supply store. If the marks persist, this can indicate a more serious problem with the fusing roller that would require service attention.

Streaks at 3.74 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the image drum of the printer. There is no way to repair a damaged photosensitive image drum, so in the case that it is scratched or otherwise damaged, the entire CRU (toner/drum cartridge) would require replacement to clear up these marks.
