Blank spots on page

Hello, just recently my 2400W printer has started leaving blank spots on the page. These blotches are evenly spaced. I cleaned the laser leanse and still no difference. Is it the imaging drum?

How far apart are the blank spaces? If they are around 2 inches apart down the page, then it sounds as if it is the drum

Magicolor 2400w top margin off


I spent a while troubleshooting a similar issue on my 2400W. It turned out to be the SL2 registration solenoid, which failed to engage properly. The purpose of SL2 is to stop the page temporarily until it lines up with the image on the transfer belt. Unfortunately, SL2 is very finicky, the foam pad that stops the lever flattened too much and got sticky, so the lever wouldn't engage anymore, and the paper went straight through instead of pausing briefly when using B&W mode driver, resulting in the shifted image. In color mode, I got no image, just a "paper jam at transfer roller" error message, even though the paper came out empty without jamming. I had to adjust SL2 a few times to get it to work optimally, i.e. with minimal travel and maximal holding force. Then everything worked well again.

Black dots/blotches on the sides of printed sheets - whats is the cause and how t to fix it


If you have random blotches on both sides of the sheet, your printer probably needs cleaning, especially in the fuser section. If the fuser is difficult to get at, here's a good cheat developed for HP LaserJet 6 printers: Use a basic graphics program such as Microsoft Paint to draw three solid black rectangles about 2.5" top to bottom, going all the way across the paper (the space in between is not critical - the key is that you go as close to edge-to-edge as you can get). Print out this sheet.

Put the sheet back in the paper tray so it will print on the blank side (usually printed side up). Open up a quick text processor (Notepad in Windows). Type a single space, then print (some text editors won't print a document with no data in it). Dirt in the fuser will get stuck to the black areas on your cleaning sheet. Test your work by printing another copy of " ". Repeat with a new cleaning sheet if necessary.

Our printer leaves black spots/blotches all over everything we print. Ive changed the cartrdige and attempted to clean out the printer and these black spots will not go away, what should I do?


I think you'll also have to clean the fuserunit. This is the hot part at the back of the machine. Take of the back covers and you can take it out to clean it.

Paper jams w/ all types of paper, Ink blotches...


If you're getting spots on the prints, run the Remove Ink Smears routine in the maintenance. It will clear the ink from the preheater. User packing tape to pull dust off of pick rollers. It's easy to unclip the unit and roll it on a piece of tape to remove dust.

Magicolor 2400w won't print on top of page, then jam


I kept digging until I found some helpful, lucky people that stumbled across a solution. The cost of doing the repair yourself is about $1 for superglue.

I detailed the repair in my blog: http://dlburkhart.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!5BA5F950B86A8BE5!182.entry.

I don't know if that URL will work as a permanent link. So, just in case, the same information is on my business web site on the Tech Tips page: http://www.BurkhartTech.com/Tips.html.

I hope to have helped.

If anyone can use a custom web site, I can really use the work. I left work a couple of years ago to be a stay-at-home dad and to try to start up a web site business. Things started out okay. But the economy soured, all of my business dried up, and now I can't find full time employment.

pleas check transfer belt, and drum unit, probably these lines are caused by drum unit and you have to change it. also you can clean laser glass, what is under the drum unit. if both look fine you can also look at the fusing rollers.

Prints blank page even when used by itself


weird, this problem accours almost only in lazerjets. anyway, you can try the following: 1. Unplug data cable. 2. plug power cord directly to socket (as opposed to extension) . 3. remove memory card. 4. changed toner cartridge. also, the info in the following page may assist you: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q189764/
