The Cyan toner cartridge is jammed, it needs to be taken out and try and move the white plastic gear round a bit to free it. It normally is very stiff and wont move much, but if you can move it a fraction that will do. One thing, did you overfill the cartridge with toner? sometimes that will cause them to seize up.

Xerox phaser 6180. Printing 3 blue horizontal lines spaced evenly apart on printed page. New toners. Could it be fuser? transfer roller?


Just because they are new toners, doesn't mean they can't be faulty.

Faults that show in just a single colour are almost always related to THAT colour toner cartridge.

TRY THIS

If you still have your old cyan toner, swap the chip from your new toner and put the old toner in the printer, then test.

If the lines are gone, it's the NEW cyan toner cartridge.

Hi there, need your kind help. My Hp laserjet 5550 has a missing colour problem. Cyan is missing in the print out, giving rise to to blue and green colours being absent in print-outs. Scanner is confirmed...


Cyan cartridge is OK, means that the display shows the level of toner in the cartridge, right? Then chip it is ok.
Try another cyan toner, the printer may be that it has broken the opening flap of the laser. Or check if the laser's flap cyan is blocked.

Colors are not printing the acutal color


It all depends on the meaning of 'not properly'.

Try creating a document with four different squares, or words, of these colours: yellow, magenta, cyan and black. If all of them print (albeit not with the correct shades) it is probably an ICM driver error. But my guess is that only one of those four colors will print badly, due to a defective color cartridge.
The OKI 5150 makes all perceivable colours using cyan, magenta, yellow and black toners, so if one of these malfunctions, the resulting colors will lack the required shade of, say, yellow, and will appear to be "wrong". The yellow colour itself, of course, would simply disappear (the "yellow" you use might actually be 95% yellow and 5% cyan; then the "yellow" square will be printed as a very light shade of cyan, while the other colors - say, 95% magenta and 5% yellow - will turn out almost exact).

Try with the color test and replace any failing cartridge; if all four (almost) pure colours do print incorrectly, it's unlikely to be a cartridge problem, and we'll have to dig deeper.

I get this blue stripe down the right side of the page whenever I print in colour. When I print in black and white the colour is not even but there is no blue stripe.


Open the doors to locate and wipe off the green shiny roller really well. Spin it and wipe it off all the way, especially on that right side. Pull out the cyan toner and wipe it around where the toner comes out. Check other rollers for blue marks and wipes those off as well. Lit free cloths work best but I just use a damp paper towel and then a dry one.

It's probably the toner cartridge again. See if you can spot defects at the cyan drum unit that matches the marks on your printout.

Epson C900 won't print in blue, noisy pick up


The rollers are jammed with a tiny piece of foam from a damaged pick up roller, usually because it is just worn out from multiple refills or it has been over-filled when re-filling or the wrong brand of toner can sometimes do it too. If you take the roller out of the cartridge, you should be able to dislodge it, but usually it's the beginning of the end of the cartridge, as the roller is starting to disintegrate. You need to get a replacement cartridge.

Do you have the operators manual? Run it through a cleaning cycle. Also Xerox's website will guide you through some maintenance steps. If you are using generic wax, you may have clogged the jets.
