One of 2 things, Replace the transfer cleaning blade. You may be able to clean it and get rid og the problem. The second thing to try is to replace the magenta drum, but thats less likely since you say it goes away in 3-4 pages.I suspect the transfer blade.

    Ohhhh, I just thought, It could also be coming from the fuser pressure belt. Does it look a but oily? If so, select 10 pages, when the machine is just feeding one out, shut the machine off to jam it. Then see if the image problem is before the fuser. It just popped into my mind that if the pressure belt was replaced and there was excess lube put on the belt edge, you may be picking up some of that.

Head cleaning

Please don't try to clean the "head" A laser printer is a very delicate apparatus and can be dammaged very easy. The manual gives several reasons, why shadow's can apear. One is the paper could be to moist. You could see the manual (still online) to check what "shadow" is closest you what your machine produces.
Maintanance starts at page 72 and is followed by trouble shooting, where you can see print errors.

Wont print

These machines can be a little finiky when replacing the paper in them try to take some of the paper off of the pile then take the paper your going to load and stand it on end and tap it like you would a deck of cards then turn it side ways and do the same. Once you do this reinsert paper and gently move paper back and forth into the feeding tray then try again, it has to make it to the paper feeder sensor to work then try again if it does not work let me know and I will try to help you some more on trouble shooting. You can also go to http// insert your model number and search paper feed problems and it will give you step by step instructions to sovle your problems. Thanks for using fix-ya.

When printing, in particular photo's there is a pink strip appearing on the left side of each image.

turn on/off, unplug, plug in, should reset configs.

check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck take all the paper out, put half as much back in.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above. HP has an awesome site for trouble shooting problems
hope this helps and good luck

I dont get prints when I give print command but when I use the

What does it say in the display?..load paper plain letter....load MP feeder? I think the problem is the following. On the menu right arrow over to the paper menu. Hit then gives you sub menus...paper type...paper size. Go to paper size...specify the tray your using...most likely tray one. Hit select and see what size paper its set on. I'm assuming your trying to print on letter size. If it says something else like legal...executive..A4...change it in the menu to letter. If it changes to letter hit select to save the setting. Now if it won't change in the menu pull open the paper tray. The back paper guide is real sensitive on these machines. You have to make sure the geen/blue tab on the back is set exactly into the letter size slot on the tray. That slot will be slightly bigger than the rest of the teeth you see on the bottom of the tray. If you have it set right then there should only be the 2 bottom tabs extending on the outside left side of the tray. Those tell the printer what size paper is in the tray. If theres 3 sticking still don't have it set right for letter size. Okay..the last thing. Something that goes bad on those machines is the tray card. Its where those 2 tabs on the side of the machine I mentioned interface with the printer. They can go bad. You can either replace that card..or trick it. To trick it go back to the paper menu...paper size tray 1. Open the tray...and close it again. The setting on the screen will change to another that again or until it changes to letter size. The leave it alone. You may have to do that everytime you add paper an reinsert the draw unless you replace that card. Hope this helps!

Canon i990 prints are too "pink"

I had the same problem and it turned out to be a combination of the actual paper and media type. Brother brand paper just printed way too pink and some Ilford papers did also. I had an image that was desaturated and even when printing as a greyscale came out magenta.
Was three nights of hard work to get sorted. try printing on plain paper with media type set to plain paper. good luck with it though, I know how frustrating it can be!
