The smudges on the side of the paper is most likely a piece of something rubbing against the paper just after the printer puts the ink on the paper. Inspect as much as possible the path that paper takes. Look at rollers. Anything that grab the paper. Look for ink and dust build up. As for the vertical lines. Could be several things. I you haven't used you printer for awhile the ink in the nozzle could of dried up. Most new printers have a nozzle cleaning function. Try that it a couple of times. See if that helps. If it shows any sign of change after that, it dried up ink. It's a hassle to try to get the ink flowing again. I normally just to replace the cartridges. Let me know if this helps or not.
Vertical lines and evenly spaced marks are typically caused by damaged drum. The drums are usually in the toner cartridges. If you think its coming from a a roller or wheel you should be able to just clean off the roller/wheel. The fuser is simply what melts the toner into the paper so I doubt that is your issue.
Try cleaning the rollers and wheels. If that doesnt help replace the drum/cartridge if they are combined.
hi this may be the toner roller or supply drum for the toner cartridge . if it scratched or worn it leaves marks on the drum or the roller, which in turn fills with toner and leaves an imprint on the page, you can check these , just remove the toner cartridge and look at the green roller and also look at the black roller, it might be a simple case of changing it or cleaning it....hope this helps
The streak on the back is from ink coming up on your exit rollers. You need to have the machine taken apart, ink cleaned off the rollers, and a mylar shield put in to stop the ink from coming up on the rollers. Canon makes an absorber kit that includes the mylar.
the faint grey line is probably from teh fuser belt being worn you can check this by going to rear of printer open up door and look at the surface of the fusing roller it probably has a build up of toner or worn belt thais makes the lines sometimes.. if the fuser is clean you need to open up the side door and look at the drum and transfer belt sections.. Good Luck
Its probably due to the roller, which are supposed to be changed every so often anyway.
With use, the rollers become scored/worn in places. The excess toner powder that is not used in the printing process is removed by a rubber blade. When the roller becomes worn it isn't wiped clean by the blade ... and you get that characteristic black line down the paper.
Change the roller. You'll probably pick one up on ebay.
First I would suggest performing any head alignment functions with your printer's menu to be sure you have the stepper motor feed adjusted properly. Use the paper you are currently printing on for this procedure so that the thickness of that paper is factored in. If you stil see the banding after doing this, you can use the Advanced Media Control button under Printer Settings in ColorBurst to fine-tune the paper feed adjustment. Print out the "Media Advance.tif" target (located in the ColorBurst/images & Targets folder) to use as a guide. For white bands, you'll need to enter a negative number (to shorten the paper feed).
