Poor quality copies

I am getting poor copies. They are streaked with blank (no print) columns. I replaced my toner cartridge thinking that it was the problem but even with the new toner I am still getting very light and poor copies.

Hi, this is most likely caused by a worn or faulty drum.

Printing Quality on HP 4550 Colorlaserjet


most likely the OPC (drum) or sometimes called "image drum or transfer belt located in the top draw. this is a consumable that needs replacing after it's life cycle is over. sometimes it will go below or over the life cycle, it all depends on many variables.

I would take out all the consumables, toner, belt and so on and use a dry cloth and small vacuum to clean the inside of the printer, then test it again, but when you have streaks it is usually the transfer belt. other possibilities is the scanner/laser window inside, sometimes it gets toner on the glass.

but step 1 is the Transfer Belt/Drum

hope this helps

We have installed in our office a Canon MF8330Cdn printer. Every page that is printed now have a vertical line down the entire length of the page about 1" from the left hand edge of the page. Can you...


Her are somethings to try.
  1. Paper jam
  2. Bad toner cartridge or bad toner.
  3. Clean the corona wire (see the manual)
  4. Drum is wearing out and needs to be replaced.
Sometime a small piece of paper can get jammed in the toner cartridge roller and cause this type of problem.
Also, often this seen with after market toner cartridges or refilled cartridges. Poor quality or old toner will clump inside the cartridge roller wiper blade. Just like dirt under the wiper blade on an auto, it will leave streak on the toner roller that are transfered to the print drum.
Take a look at the toner cartridge first and inspect the long black roller. If the streaks are there then you need a new cartridge.
If no on the roller streaks try to clean the corona wires.
Also inspect the drum to see if has streak. Try wiping drum with soft tissue paper to see if it come off or is etched into drum.

Fax quality poor when recieving fax from samsung scx 4521F


Good Day Sir, Hope my suggested solution will resolve your problem.

Condition: The incoming fax has a blank spaces or is of poor-quality.

Solution:
  • The fax machine sending you the fax may be faulty.
  • A noise phone line can cause line errors.
  • Check your machine by making a copy.
  • The toner cartridge, referring to "Replacing the Toner Cartridge".
Redistributing the Toner
  1. Open the Front door.
  2. Pull the toner cartridge out and remove it from the printer.
  3. Gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side five or six times to redistribute the toner.
Have a nice day and God bless.

Smasung ML2510 Laser print quality poor especially on graphics


Full isn't always the answer, in order to refill a cartridge properly you need to also replace the cleaning blade inside. The blade wears out and doesn't clean the drum properly and also lets toner leak all over. Your best bet is a new OEM cartridge, or put a new cleaning and Dr. blade in yours.

Printed pages look terrible...


I'm more familiar with HP printers, but it sounds like a fuser is bad. The fuser effects print quality as well. If you've replaced the toner, as you have.
