Question about Brother HL 1030 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printing black smudges across the page at 10 cm intervals

The printer prints smudges, ca 5 cm apart horizontally and 10cm vertically. Varies, when I clean everything, the green roller, gently, and with the wire maybe one page prints clean, then the smudges return. Replaced the toner cartridge today but problems remain the same. Any suggestions much appreciated

Most likely cause by the drum unit. Replace drum or upgrade printer.

hi

First try printing a few pages to try and clean the drum unit. If the problem is not solved after printing a few pages, the drum unit may have glue from a label stuck on the drum surface.

Hi Colin.

I just have had the same problem with my Aculaser C4200.
I may have found a way to solve you problem.
Just print 10 blank (without anything), and after that i took all toner's, the fuser etc. and put it back again. Printed 10 more blank pages, and printed over 200 pages with lot of tekst and colour (think that 50 pages could do it).
After 2 days everything is still ok for me.

Do a cleaning several times. If that doesn't do it, then it is time to get a new printer. They are cheap enough and will be cheaper than bringing it to the repair shop.

My metric to standard conversions skills are poor. But if 10 cm is equivalent to about 2 inches it sounds like the drum on the cartridge has gone bad from inactivity. Change the cartridge.
