SOURCE: I have unistalled driver and then reinstalled

ok if the printer is installed properly, what you have to do is: 1. go to start>printers and faxes. if your printer is installed it should be there (depends on your OS basic steps); if you see your printer in this folder, go ahead and right click on it, select "set as default" or "make default" and you would see a green check mark on your printer's icon, now you can close all of that. When you are ready to print, make sure that your printer is selected and go ahead and click print.

Remove the potentially problematic printer driver subkeys, which may be interfering with your printer. These may have been installed by third-party printer setup programs. Use the following steps to keep the printer driver and registry entries that came with Windows on your computer and remove all others that may be causing issues.

1. Start Registry Editor if it is not open. To do this, click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.

2. Locate and then expand the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers

3. The registry entries for the printer drivers that are installed on the computer are stored in the Version-x subkey or subkeys, where x is a number (typically 2 or 3).

4. Export the Version-x subkey or subkeys. To do this, follow these steps:
* On the File menu, click Export.
* In the File Name box, type the name that you want to use for this key, such as print driver, and then click Save.

5. Expand the Version-x subkey or subkeys, and then delete the printer driver entries. To do this, right-click each printer driver subkey, and then click Delete. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the deletion.

Normally this is the symbol that your printer is not on-line either for the reasons:
1) printer not turned on;
2) printer not connected properly;
3) printer driver damaged; - need to reinstall the printer driver with the CD provided;
4) print spooler service not activated in windows - need to enable the print spooler service in window console service;

Mysterious printing appears on copies

My guess is you have a driver problem?? You did not indicate what OS you are using, but I am guessing Windows Vista? If Vista, make sure you upgrade to SP2 and you delete and reinstall the print driver. I think all the HL-20xx series drivers are the same and you can use any of them as long as you do not care about the printer status monitor.
