Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
My printed pages now have a dull grey background after printing, also there seems to be little smudge dots all over the page. on the back of the page there is a thick black band across the top. i have tried cleaning it?
Your refilled cartidge could be leaking. If so, things will look pretty massy inside the printer

Are you sure this is a Designjet 450 (large format printer) and not a Deskjet 450 (portable printer)? The following assumes you have wispy black streaking on the printed side of the paper. If the streaking is on the back side then post more details of the printer model and the issue.
In either case the most likely cause is a buildup of fibers on the underside of the printheads or carriage, causing wisps of black ink to be dragged on the paper when the carriage reverses direction. You can clean the printer as shown at the following (though the details will be somewhat different for the Designjet or Deskjet....).

You have mentioned this is a 2nd hand printer,
you have to service the printer,(fuser unit)
if the problem exists after fuser service check Laser Scanner also,

Your problem lies with the fact that you manually refilled your cartridges. This is not recommended by any technician I know and your solution is in the replacement of all your cartridges with genuine brother consumables. It is going to be expencive, but it is the only real solution.

I don't have this but I try to solve your problem :
In the printer and fax, right click on your device name, choose maintenance and run Cleaning, Deep Cleaning, Roller Cleaning and Bottom Plate Cleaning.
