Open the front door and wipe it off with a paper towel
slighty close the door until it opens the toner cartridges verify each cartridge is clean. If this is not the issue remove paper feeder from under the printer and verify it is clean also.

When printing color the paper jams. This does not happen when printing black. How do I stop it from jamming when printing color.

Is that true for both print and copy job ?
Where does the jam happen ?

I am thinking if it is at the paper pickup roller area just as the job starts to print and not midway while printing, check the paper quality; dirty pickup roller; clean cork pad and try job from another tray

We have a Lanier 5618 copier. Toner must have spilled out and the copies are coming our covered with thick black lines on the entire page. How do we open the machine to clean it?

first you have to see if it happens when they get to a copy or a print. If it happens in print there is not much to clean, you have to replace worn parts. If it happens only on the copy you have mirrors Sanner dirty. (strip the screws and lifting the glass carefully cleaned the mirrors).
Hope this has helped

Hi, I have a black line that runs from top to bottom of the page when scanning, faxing and copying. How do I fix this issue?

the blcak line that runs from top to bottom is due to a dirty misaligned print a full printer maintenance on your printer/scanner . Once the heads and rollers get clean and the printer is aligned, it should get rid of any black streaks or lines. I own a Brother Printer/scanner and it did the same thing to me, as soon as I ran maintenance on fixed the black straks and lines I had on my prints.

HP Laserjet 3330 printed dark page especially around the middle

Does this happen both when copying and printing?
For printing solution, try another toner cartridge.
If lines continue to appear when copying (primarily through the automatic feeder) then lift the auto feeder, and clean the glass -mainly the narrow piece on the left side.

please rate solution :)

When coping I have a black line down the left side of the page. This only happens when I'm copying NOT when I'm printing off a document from Word or the Internet on my computer. How can I get rid of this black line?

Printed pages look dirty

That black dust that fell out is the toner. When you shake a toner cartridge that shouldn't happen. It looks like you have a faulty toner cartidge and that need to be replaced! Now to make your printer prints cleanly and clearly after you replace the cartridge, you'll need to get someone to service the printer(the faulty toner cartridge more than likely spilled toner on your internal printer parts, cause the smudges). Sevicing would mainly entail, taking down the printer and removing any spilt toner! If you feel you are up to this, be cautious, because toner can be hazardous to your health if you accidentally breathe it in! hope this was helpful! regards babb
