R u using original toner? if no, replace ori. if yes, r the hot roller in the fuser hot enough? is there any gap between hot roller and pressure roller? toner smear can only be caused by non ori toner or faulty fuser unit. Faulty developer can cause sandy print out
Are the supplies you are using OEM ( original equipment manufactured ).... or is it remanufactured? I've had issues with some of the remanufactured products ( or rebuilt ). I would also take the toner out and inspect the paper path for toner and clean it out with a 3m vaccuume and a lint free wipe.
Other than that it might need a new fuser.
It is due to spilled magenta toner leaking from side to the toner cartridge. Take the cartridge out of the printer and clean it. Clean visible inside of the printer. Shake the cartridge lightly in horizontal position to evenly distribute the toner inside the cartridge and put it back. The issue sould be fixed after some prints.
Good Luck! Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
I was getting a similar blur/blob down one side of the paper (with no discernable print anywhere,) but after removing and emptying the toner collection bottle my printing returned to normal. I am still working on the size mismatch issue, which seems to be prevalent in the 2300DL population.
There are 3 things to be checked. 1: toner cartridge,try replacing it with a new on. 2: Transfer roller w/c underneath the toner cartridgelying on the printer. Removed toner cartridge,you see a roller w/c is foam like outlook,wipe it with clean dry lint free cloth or paper towel. 3: Fuser unit w/c fuse the ink on the paper.It is lacoted at the back of the machine.Remove the bottom rear cover,just by pulling it. Then you will see 2 blue color lever on left & right,turn those levers up to unlock the fuser unit,then pull out the unit. taking a look in the inner part of the unit you will see rollers . Any bad coating or damage on the roller will create smears on the prints.
Laser printers do not use Ink. The problem is most likely a defect on the drum, which in this model printer, is part of the toner cartridge. Replace the black toner cartridge with a known good one and test.
Have you refilled the toner cartridge or is it refill as when these toner cartridges are refilled they have a tendency to leak. I suggest to remove toner cartridge turn the machine off vacuum out the inside and replace the toner cartridge with a new original. Run 20-30 prints through to get rid of any other loose toner and then should be fine.
If printing doesn't improve then repeat process if still same problem suggest transfer roller to be changed.
