I've found these smudges to be caused by a build up of toner on the edge of the drum. Carefull cleaning with a lint free cloth sometimes cures the problem.

This model also has a transfer belt, that could also be the cause of the problem.

My HP 4100 printer prints with a black smudge clear down the page. I clean the roller but continues to print bad copies. Should I replace the cartridge?


Problem is either the cartridge or the fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1)
Print something. When the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the
top cover. Pull out the toner, look down at the paper.
If it has the smudge replace the toner. If no smudge, replace the fuser.

Every time I print,the right hand side of the page


Epson inkjet printer or Epson laser printer?

If inkjet, then run the Epson software to "clean" the print-heads.

If laser, then the "fuser" (which uses heat to bond the ink to the paper) is not working -- touch the paper, and see if the left side is warm while the right side is cool.

Printer is creating a crease and smudge down center of page.


There sounds like there is somthing in the path of the printhead. Using a flash light, remove back cover of machine and look for a small piece of paper,etc. Be careful not to jam anything in to th machine. It may take running a thick piece of paper through manually with your hands to remove the object.

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....).
