Your refilled cartidge could be leaking. If so, things will look pretty massy inside the printer

SOURCE: black smudges on printed page

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....).

SOURCE: Color lines/dashes at top and middle of page when printing.

Amand321,

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.

Most likely cause by the drum unit. Replace drum or upgrade printer.

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.

How to reset ink cartridges after refilling them


Go to the following website and download the freeware InkMonitor 2.1.2: http://www.pokluda.cz/. You have to add data about new cartridge. HP60 ink cartridge information, 200 pages per cartridge. This works great for me. It gives you a history of everything printed. This way you can gauge when its time to refill your cartridges. You must refill before they run out of ink or you will burn out the print heads and have to replace them.
