Over toning

do you have extra toner dropping on to the paper path after you clean it? That is what is sounds like. You are either having waste toner fall onto the paper path from the drum blade or cleaning reservoir. Or your developer is dropping toner as it shower the drum. If you are not having imaging issues, besides the toner on back; you might want to check the separation or transfer coronas and their voltages (ie...make sure all your grounds are good and clean) or it might be a voltage biasing problem.

Because somehow you are getting toner into the paper path after the copy. did not clean the paper path good enough and you are just getting leftover run-off until the documents can clear it all.

But, always try the simplest things first!!

Good Luck!!

The toner is just not bonding to the paper it just comes of when you touch it. Just installed a new drum... still not working.

The fusor roller isn't heating. I'm not sure it it is a seperate unit on that printer. They usually are but the odd printer incorporates them into the image drum.

I would open it back up and reseat everything. I would think it just was bumped in the replacement process sand its connector isn't right. If it were damaged you should be seeing an error

My printer is printing only the top left corner of all my documents

Go into print settings and make sure the dpi is set. if it is, try setting it one way and back to your previous setting. It worked for me.

My printer does not pick up the paper sheets from the paper tray.When I took paper sheet in to slot it works.

Well - I don't know if this will solve it (since there could be many causes) but it worked for me.

1 - Remove Paper Tray
2 - look at rubber rollers in printer undercarriage
3 - carefully remove "rubber bands" from roller
4 - turn rubber bands inside out and carefully return to rollers

5 - remove toner cartridge
6 - remove print drum assembly
7 - return printer drum assembly and toner cartridge

the roller trick helps the printer pick up paper
the toner/print drum trick helps reseat the inner workings of the printer correcting any misalignments that impede paper flow

Someone shook the toner before putting it in the printer and now i have toner powder on the pages when i try to print. how do i clean it out?

Pull the drum and toner cartridge out and spray inside of printer with canned air. Make sure you keep the can upright when spraying. Uncllip toner from drum and spray the area on the drum where the toner clips on. Move the corona cleaner from one side of the drum to the other a couple times, reseat toner in drum, put cartridge back in printer and print a few pages to remove toner that may have settled after spraying.

Paper Jam? Print quality

If the toner wipes off the printed pages, then the fuser is the problem....not hot enough or enough pressure to heat the toner to the paper. I would try to reseat the fuser...make sure it is making good electrical contact. I have also seen the paper actually wrap around the fuser roll, which would cause the same careful removing the paper if that has happened...the fuser roll can be easily damaged !

Horz. streak approx.3/4 down on each page I print

Sounds like some of the magenta toner is left behind on the drum. The only way to fix it is to get a new cartridge.

Printer says paper jam, but no paper in there

use a flash light check all paper path, specially the area around the toner. all you need is a small piece or other (dust). There is a micro switch that detect the paper travel. so if anything preventing the switch to open, you will get error message.
after that, open the toner door, reseat the toner and close the door. the pirnter should return to normal.

"Insert Imaging unit"

Be sure the toner cartridge and drum assembly are seated properly. Also check that the paper path is clear and un-obstructed which may cause some electrical contacts from being made. If in doubt remove the toner and drum assemblies and firmly reseat them. "imaging unit" may refer to the optical assembly the printer uses to expose the drum, these units are typically fixed in place and cannot be removed, it may also refer to the drum assembly sometimes separate from the toner cartridge. Again, make sure the metal connections are clean and the toner/drum cartridges are firmly seated.
