Question about Samsung ML 1450 Laser Printer

Samsung ML-1450 printer

Every time I print, there is a shadow further down the page of what I am printing and general black roller marks. I have tried cleaning the roller inside with some wipes but this makes no difference at all. The print quality apart from this is fine and the writing is all dark enough but all the prints look very messy because of this.

Sounds like your PCU is starting to fail. There is a cleaner roller that removes any remained toner and this could be shot. Try replacing the PCU. If this makes no difference it could be the fuser though this si less likely.

Samsung CLP-310 printer shadow printing on second half of page

I would check that the tension between your fusing rollers is ok as the toner will come off the paper and than return back to paper on its next revolution causing a faint image further down the page

Print distorted and solid toner column with Samsung ML 1450

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Samsung ML-2010 Mono Laser Printer leaves unwanted marks on page.

if older printer or well used printer (All laser printers if they have print quality issues - it is mostly either the toner or the fuser). the only way to tell is get (borrow) a toner and see if problem is the same or remove the fuser (the hot thing in the printer) and see if the "ironing" unit or fuser rollers are dirty or worn out or scratched

Samsung ML-1450 "Time out" error

I would try to reinstall the drivers for this printer and make sure it is your default or selected printer. It sounds like the drivers were changed or corrupt. Any new software install may of done this. Also try to let the printer be unpluged from power for 24 hours.
