Re: Looks like toner is not sealed to the paper.
The machine is only designed for 80gsm paper. you can change paper type through printer options in printer manager to card stock. it wil probably not work though as it is really only designed for 80gsm paper. the toner need to be heated to 200oC inorder to fuse to the paper cardstock absorbs less heat than normal paper.

This type of print quality defect shows up if you have loaded the wrong type of paper in your machine and didn't remember to change the paper type (plain paper, card stock, labels, etc.).
This can also happen if the paper has a high moisture content, or if the humidity in the room is too much. Also make sure the room temperature is within its normal operating range (not too hot, not too cold).
The problem you describe could also be caused by using non-Xerox toner/drum units. Compatible toners don't work very well in Xerox printers.
Aside from those problems, the only other thing would be if the Fuser Assembly is near the end of its life...it will also cause some print quality problems like you are describing.
Are you using original HP toners or 3rd party (refills)? We have had issues with some 3rd party toners not bonding properly on heavier media. How heavy a cardstock are you trying to print on? If it is heavier than the highest rated paper for this printer then it may not bond at all, regardless of toner used. The heaviest paper that HP rates for this printer is 43 lb/bond. A lot of cardstock starts at around 65 lb/bond.
Run the 1/2 test. Load paper in the manual feed tray. Print anything that requires more than 2 sheets. As the paper enters the printer open the top cover. Remove the toner cartridge. Look down at the paper. If it looks like the problems you described, change the toner. If it looks good, reinstall the old transfer roller and rerun the test. If transfer roller doesn't fix it, you have a bad fuser. Put the old one in and repeat.
- Load the cardstock paper in the paper tray and make sure the fences are snug but not too tight.
- Press Menu.
- Scroll down to find Paper Input and select it.
- Select Paper Type.
- Select Tray 1.
- Scroll to find "cardstock" on the list and select it.
You'll also have to set your print driver for cardstock or auto select, because if the print driver shows plain paper and the printer shows cardstock paper, you'll get a mismatch error.
Brand New T652n lexmark printer get a paper jam every time! just opened and haven't been able to print one paper. Doesn't matter if you print from tray one or tray two. It gets stuck right after the rollers pick it up and try to send it to the toner. Any suggestions? I've tried to reseat the toner, plain paper, sized the paper correctly, I've tried just about everything I can think of! I can feed paper manually through the top tray, and it will print. But, just using the manual tray defeats the purpose of the other two trays. Anyone else having this issue?
your laser printer
1) print color quality is now distorted that means print skew (technician called)
2) print tint means the print color not enough density,
3) print mottle means print dirty
you may try
1) print distorted--- find out the skew adjustment from your printer manu, it is adjust the image before transfer to the drum.
2) print skew could be happened when the drum replace install not very accurate, so install it more carefully.
3) print tint---you may increase print density from the manu, not fix,
4) print tint---the toner caridge near life cycle or using the less compatible toner. so you have change the quality toner or cartridge (if near life cycle) to improve quality photo print
5）print mottle---toner quality ? or cartridge near life cycle also cause print dirty paper,
Hi there sound to me like the toner cartridge is either faulty or leaking. Is it or has it been refilled if so remove cartridge vacuum out the insides of loose toner install brand new toner cartridge then test again. It cannot be the fuser unit as it will have quality problems all the time so try above and I hope it works for you.
