Ok if you are getting peices of rubber on the pabe it could be the fuser rollers.. this unit comes out easy.. looking at the unit there are 2 screws on both ends looking back at you... remove the screws and the unit lifts strait up once its out you can see the rollers much better. it is either comming apart or the teflon could be sliding off. if it looks ok you may need to run the paper thru slower it may not be fusing good 2 ways to do it try the bypass and select heavy 1 or you can set the cassette for heavy under add func common settings paper settings...

When the paper prints, the color is missing in areas. It looks like a streak mark down the page. The black ink is full color, they yellow and cyan have a white, non-printed streak down the center, and...

Inspect the rollers for dirty or damaged surfaces. Clean up any loose toner or other debris in the machine. Note: avoid touching any roller with bare skin; especially in the fuser section or the photosensitive drum in the toner section. Skin oil can cause poor print quality or premature degradation of the roller surface.

Printed image repeats later

I have a Dell 5100CN, and believe that this problem is caused by the drum not releasing the full charge which holds the ink in place on the drum until the page is printed. After the image is transfered to the Drum, the 'Fuser' unit heats up the paper and pressure forces the paper against the drum to transfer the toner from the drum to the paper.

Since the Image is printing, and you are getting a ghost, I guess that the problem is most likely the 'Pressure Roller' or 'Heater' in the 'Fuser' unit.

Buying the Fuser unit from Dell could cost you around $200 from Dell, but I just found one on eBay for $129 Got to and search for item number 190388919845

I highly recommend that you buy a new OEM (original Equipment Manufacturer (Genuine Dell)) 'Fuser Unit'

Good Luck

Have you checked the fuser?

A laser printer fuser assembly is the heating roller unit that melts and fuses the toner onto the paper. The fuser assembly is made up of a heating roller and a pressure roller.

The heating roller applies the heat to the toner on the printed page and the pressure roller presses and fuses the toner into the printed page. If it's bad and not heating properly, the print will be faint, which is what you describe. You may be able to remove and clean the fuser, but if the printer gets lots of use, it may just be worn out.

See this link for an idea of what it looks like and a price.

I do not work or represent this company, so shop around.

When I print to my Oki C3200n the paper comes out with a giant crease in it. The fuser was replaced and the problem still persisted. Are there any other possible solutions?

The "fuser" uses heat to "bake" the ink onto the paper.

Your printer seems to have a mechanical problem while "feeding" the paper from the "input" tray, through the printer, passing the fuser, and to the "output" tray.

Check that all the rollers that "pull" the paper into the printer are working -- if one of them is not grabbing the paper, the paper "slews".

If you need help, take the printer to a qualified technician for repairs.

Most probably you have a worn out drum, and most probably is the yellow drum. The other possible thing a worn out transfer cleaning blade. I suggest that from service mode and option you activate the drum life display. So that when you press on system monitor and then consumables you can view the all the drums status apart from th etoner availabilty.

Printouts have type ghosting

Change the fuser unit if you have to hand. The problem is likely caused by a lack of pressure from the pressure roller. Also check the transfer roller for a similar ghost image.

Printer makes nail marks in the paper

NO, if you open up the fuser section the fuser rollers are probably shot. They have to be changed, I usually show my clients what I'm talking about when they need a part. it gives them a better perspective of how bad and what I'm talking about.

If you can live w the copies like that then it's o.k. for now, but they will have to be changed eventually, some models you can change the rollers without the whole unit and can cost you less.
