My LG Front Load washing machine is leaving black streaks and smudges on my clothing. These streaks and smudges are ruining my clothes!


Hi,

There can be several things that can cause this problem. The most common are:

1. Fabric softener - did you switch brands lately?

2. Chlorine bleach - if added at the wrong time

3. A mechanical problem with the washer, like a leaky transmission leaking oil.

4. Rust staining, sometimes caused by the water being used in the machine.

Here is a link to a site that discusses this issue more in depth:

I have a Michael Kors watch with a white rubber wristband that has turned dirty and dark in less than a year. I am quite unhappy with how it looks, but very happy with the watch. What to do???


Thanks for contacting FixYa.
  1. The easiest thing to try is a regular pencil eraser. It's perfect for removing marks and smudges from rubber and works like a charm! Use white erasers as the pink ones may leave pink smudges.
  2. If a regular pencil eraser doesn't work, try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser or similar product. Simply moisten the sponge and rub it over the stained area.
  3. If that doesn't do it, grab your safety goggles and move on to the next step.
  4. Mix four parts water with one part bleach in a cup or small bowl. You will need less than ¼ cup of the finished solution, so only mix a small amount.
  5. Wearing eye protection, moisten a white cloth with the mixture. Do not use a colored cloth. You will likely transfer color from the cloth to the watch band and make your problem worse.
  6. Carefully dab the bleach against the stain on the watch band. Don't over apply the bleach or leave it for more than a few seconds or you may damage the rubber.
  7. If needed, increase the strength of the solution by adding a bit more bleach. Do this in small increments to expose the rubber watchband to as little bleach as necessary.
  8. Blot and repeat as necessary if you see improvement.
  9. Once the stain is removed, rinse the band well with water to remove all the bleach residue.
  10. If the stain remains, mix the Rit Dye Remover with a small amount of water to make a paste.
  11. Spread the paste onto the stained area and allow it to set for a minute.
  12. Rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.
  13. Repeat if necessary.
Additional Tips and Advice
  • Once you have the band clean, treat it with Armor-All wipes made for vinyl car interiors. This easy tactic will help protect the band from stains and smudging. Repeat every few weeks for maximum effect.
  • Be careful with acetone on rubber watch bands. It can start to break down the rubber and make the band feel "sticky." Once done, this can be difficult to reverse.
Best regards.

HP4-smudged copies of printed text are appearing lower on the page...Any ideas on the fix


Run a 1/2 test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1).
print something. And watch the paper. As the paper gets
about 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover, remove the toner.
Look down at the paper. If you don't see smudged text, the fuser is probably bad.
If you see the smudging, replace the toner.

My dcp165c printer print quality prints black & yellow colour. i clean print head through maintance 76 but problem cannot be solved


How is the printer printing black and yellow color? Is it a smudge?

When I print, the pages are smudged with ink. What should I do?
Description:
- If smudged stains appear at the top center of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not too thick or curled.
    Also, verify that the appropriate paper is being used and that the paper type set in the machine matches the media used.
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear at the right or left corner of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear on the reverse side or at the bottom of the page:
NOTE: Illustrations shown below are from the representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.
  • Make sure the printer platen is not dirty with ink.

    How to clean the machine's printer platen

Why is there a black stripe on the backsid of the paper when I try and print?


you need to clean the bottom plate, heres how:
1 Make sure that the printer is on and then remove any paper from the Rear Tray.
2 Press the Open button to open the Paper Output Tray and extend the Output Tray Extension.
3 Fold a single sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in half widthwise, and then unfold the paper.
4 Load this and only this sheet of paper in the Rear Tray with the open side to the front.

(A) Load the paper after unfolding it.
5 Open the printer properties dialog box.

6 Click the Maintenance tab, and then Bottom Plate Cleaning.
7 Confirm the displayed message and click Execute.
The paper cleans the inside of the printer as it feeds through the printer.
Check the folded part of the ejected paper. If it is smudged with ink, perform Bottom Plate Cleaning again.
Important --
Even if the Cassette is selected as the paper source, paper will be fed from the Rear Tray.
Do not perform any other operation while the bottom plate is being cleaned.
If the problem is not resolved after performing cleaning twice, the protrusions inside the printer may be stained. Clean them according to instructions. See Cleaning the Protrusions Inside the Printer.

Toner being deposited on back of page


point check

1.Hallo your rollers are dirty and smudged

2.Is your fuser unit O.k (clean)

3.is your paper good quality or are you using coated paper the wrong side? thereby staining the fuser unit (the hot part of the printer)

4. Most unlikely but have u ever turned your printer upside down??? or excess sideways tilt thereby releasing waste toner from the bottom of the printer to the roof then to your paper???

if all is nay then remove all toners and give your machine a gool blowout
