Replacing laser printer fuser

Black blotches down the side of the page (center & text is fine) despite cleaning toner off the paper path and lowering the toner darkness. The toner cartridge is a refill but not very full. Seems to be a problem with the fuser?

SOURCE: Dell 3100cn laser printer poor print quality

It sounds like you've got contamination on the drum cartridge or on one of the toner cartridges.

I'm actually going to be installing black toner in my 3100cn in about 8 hours, so I'll inspect and clean each of the carts, and write up the process for you tonight.

I am getting several black lines in scanned and copied documents of my DCP 7020 Thanks


Check the print document to see if the ink rub of easily,if so this mean the fuser cartridge need to be change.Turn off the printer and wait until it is cool before changing the fuser cartridge because the fuser get very hot when ever the printer is in use.









Open the fuser cartridge door. On most printers this door will be either on the left-hand side of the printer or in the back. Consult your owner's manual for the exact location. Flip down the clips that hold the cartridge in place, then grasp the handle and pull it out of the printer.
Push the new fuser cartridge in until it snaps into place, then flip the clips up to lock it in place. Close the fuser cover door.
Open the toner cartridge door and remove the toner cartridge. On most laser printers the toner cartridge is located either in the front of the printer or on the right-hand side.
Vacuum underneath the toner cartridge to remove all paper dust and toner residue. This debris has a tendency to build up and cause streaks and stains on the paper.
Wipe the interior of the printer with a soft cloth to remove any remaining debris that could cause problems with print quality. Continue cleaning the printer until all debris is removed.
Purchase a set of laser printer cleaning sheets, and load one or two in the paper tray. Print to those sheets of paper to clean the paper path. These sheets are slightly sticky, and they are designed to remove dirt and debris from the paper path.
You should also clean the print drum and the corona wires.

The black print jobs have a shadow about 3 inches down the page


I had replaced the fuser - no improvement. I removed the fuser, imaging unit & transfer roller. CAREFULLY using a vacuum cleaner I cleaned all units and the internals of the printer, rotating the roller on the imaging unit to clean all parts. (Warning Place Imaging unit on paper as toner escapes) After a few test prints the page cleared and duplicate ghosting cleared.

Vertical dots down center of paper HP 1320 printer


If the pattern repeats down the feed path of the paper, then a roller is causing it. The toner cartridge replaces the transfer drum, the fuser roller remains in the printer. Since your old cartridge does not show this problem the fuser roller sounds to be fine. Return the recently purchased toner for a replacment, you should be fine. If not then a proper cleaning by a certified technician would be in order.

Black streaks on paper on samsung ml 2150 laser printer


Could you describe these marks for us please.

Are they small specks or blotches? Bad Toner Cartridge

Are they lines:
Horizontal - Transfer Roller or Charge Roller
Vertical - Bad Toner OR Bad Fuser.

Note: A bad toner cartridge can render all of the parts listed here useless. Check for build up or lines on the cartridge reflective drum. Avoid light, as with film.

If they are a mix of both, the device needs to be cleaned with a can of compressed air. You must remove the cartridge, paper tray(s, and fuser to create clear path.

HP 2600n gray background darkness throughout paper


Ehh, after futher reading it seems, as long as the EBT is not physically damadged, it is fine. So it all points back to the fuser. Ebay for $75 genuine HP.

But for others, just to rule out anything simple, disconnect from computer, and reset to factory defaults. Print Demo page. If still looks ugly, nothing to loose, run the service menu cleaning option, basicly heats the fuser very hot and passes a paper very slowly to catch any excess toner. I have never seen this cleaning option help but you never know. And if your print still looks like ****, you can save your beloved slow printing laser jet, replace the fuser.

Awsome instructions...

HP Laserjet 1320 - Gray bars printing on sides of paper with dark dots


It sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Try replacing it. If that does not cure the problem, then the fuser assembly needs to be replaced, in which case it is probably cheaper to buy a new one.

Good luck
