    It sounds like that toner got on to the fuser and is burnt on there causing that. Now are the lines random or is in seem like a pattern?

    Look at the drum and see if there are any black marks on it. Do you see any?

Toner marks


Your Drum Cylinder has a scratch or clot of toner stuck to it. Every time it rotates along the page (usually 4 rotations per A4) it leaves a copy of the defect on the page. If you take the toner cartidge out of the drum unit, you will be able to turn the drum cylinder until you find the fault. Either replace the drum unit or CAREFULLY clean it with alcohol on a cotton ball (meths or iso propoyl will do) in the case of a toner clot. If the fault recurs quickly after cleaning, then you have a damaged drum and it should be replaced.
Best of luck.

My printer is leaving toner "tire marks" up and down the right and left side of the page margin as well as spilling uneven blotches of toner along the right side of the paper.


Your printer needs cleaning. Consult your printer manual on how to clean it. If you do not have the manual, you can usually download it from the printer manufacturer's website.

I have a HP Colourjet 2600n which has worked well for 12 months plus. However it has just started printing with thick black smudges along the left of every page. It looks like there is yellow powder...


If you have BLACK Marks on the paper the YELLOW roller does not need to be cleaned usually.

To clean the yellow toner off the roller use a DRY lint free cloth. For this issue my suggestion for a resolution to the Yellow toner issue is replace the toner. They are not supposed to leak in the first place.

As for the BLACK tone on the left of the page you most likely have a Fuser issue causing that.

Marks on printed sheet


Toner powder is so fine that it hides under parts that you can't see. By all means, DO NOT blow it out with canned air! Get a vacuum with a fine filter that can hold toner and remove the toner cartridge. Then vacuum out the inside of the printer as thoroughly as possible. Especially clean out along the paper path and where the cartridge goes in. It may still print a few dirty pages, but after several pages, it should go away.

2430 printing 1/2 inch marks down left side of page


Did you change the Toner cartridge? If that did not fix it :
Then the Fuser needs replacing. If you take the Fuser out from the rear, and rotate the drum in it, you will see the marks. You can try to clean it but experience shows that you will have to replace it.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

1320n marks along left side of paper


repetitive defects are caused by either a ding on the drum in the toner, a scratch or dirty transfer roller, or scratched or dirty heat roller in the fuser, Last but not least is dirty exit roller. the first step to any print quality defect is to cahnge the toner cartridge. Good Luck!

Black smudge marks along left side edge of paper.


Its probably a defective toner. If the film on the toner drum is scratched it can cause toner to stick to the drum everytime it spins causing the constant marks.
