Cleaning my unit resulted in the solution of this problem. I removed the toner cartridges, the imaging unit, and the waste bin, opened the back door as well, and blew it out with "canned air". This will not solve all problems, but it is the right place to start. be careful to keep the imaging unit out of bright light when you you have it out of the printer.
I'm gonna assume you have a laser printer. You might need a cleaning since some toner might have spilled when you replace your toner. Toner gets into the rollers inside the printer that pulls the paper thru and creates smudgy black lines.
Check out your local business supply store like Staples for Laser Printer Cleaning paper. It doesn't work 100% of the time depend how dirty the inside of the printer is. Maybe a quick fix then buying a new printer. Getting toner mess out is a a messy job.
