What happens here is this: when a page is printed in black and white, only the black cartridge is used. When a color page is printed, it mixes the three colors to make black.

Is the color cartridge you have in the printer an HP cartridge? how long have you had the printer, and how often do you use it?

Thanks

Samsung clp 315 printing shadow images


Ghosting appears often because of bad toner. If cartridges have been refilled, they have wrong toner in them. If drum has worn out it will usually tell you. All parts for this machine cost too much. If toner is not the problem, probably best to get a new machine rather than pay to get it fixed. Brothers are cheaper to run.

I have canon lbp 2900 printer when i print first line shadow is also printed in the middle of page and middle line shadow is also is printed in the last of page. and some of line shadow is also printed.


Repetitive ghosting defects like this are caused by either a bad drum in the cartridge or a damaged or worn fuser assembly. Try a different cartridge first, but make sure you print at least 50 pages to make sure that any toner residue is cleaned of the fuser in the printing process. If the defect is still there then you will need to either repair or replace the fuser.

Shadow print from 2200d laser printer


This shadow, or backgrounding, is generally caused by excess debris remaining on the drum. This is mostly caused by the wiper blade not dislodging all the waste toner. You will need to replace the cartridge (C4096A).

Shadow on printed page


You either have a bad toner cartridge or bad fuser. Measure the distance from and exact on image printered to the exact same spot on the page it appears again. If it's fuser it will be 41.0mm between image and defect. Any other spacing on the front of the page is usually cartridge.

Try replacing the cartridge first and if that doesnt fix the issue it's fuser.

Here's a link for the service manual. Look at page 117 to get a complete list on repetative defects and their causes.

Hope that helps you.
