SOURCE: have black smudge line in middle of paper have new toner and drum

Try taking out your toners, and on the drum you will see a green button which you can slide from side to side (it's on each of the colored slots). Make sure you put the the white plastic cover up and then it will slide. I hope this will help you.

SOURCE: black line down right margin

Have you tried a new toner and drum unit? if not please do so. If that doesn't work then it is a scanner lamp failure and will need replacing.

You can fix it but trying to obtain this part for such an old machine will be hard. Don't know the part number sorry.

Thanks J

SOURCE: Dots on the left side margin

This problem comes from drum cartridge, you may try:
1) take out drum cartidge open drum cover clean the surface at leftside(using soft brush) and check drum surface at leftside, there is damage if you see the color surface appear a broken-ring at leftside(the color changed), you have to change new drum cartridge,
2) sometimes cause cartidge clean brush dirty can not do well cleaning job, just clean this parts at leftside well then turning drum a little there is no toner appear at surfac leftside if ok.

Why does Xerox 7335 truncates output from Oracle PDF?


It may not be the printer and I did some research on Oracle and this seems to be a common issue.
I pulled this information off an Oracle knowledgebase it may not resolve your issue and there is more info on the following site if you want to investigate further:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/bi.1111/b32121/pbr_uxprt009.htm#RSPUB75727
NOTE:
If you're printing to the Xerox MFD with a PS (postscript printer driver) you could try installing and printing using the Xerox PCL driver for your computers operating system. If you printing reports from a mainframe this may be an issue at the mainframe level in which case I would engage your companies IT department for assistance.
Any one of a number of possible causes may account for the truncation of fields.
  • Check the field and determine if it is allowed to expand.
    1. In Oracle Reports Builder, double-click the field in the Paper Design or Paper Layout view to display the Property Inspector.
    2. Find the Horizontal Elasticity property.
    3. If it is set to Fixed, you should change it to Variable or Expand.
    4. Run the report to the printer.
    5. If it still truncates, it could be that the field requires multiple lines.
    6. Return to the Property Inspector for the field and check its Vertical Elasticity.
    7. If it is set to Fixed, you should change it to Variable or Expand.
    8. Run the report to the printer again.
  • If the right most fields on the page are always the ones truncating, it could be an issue with the printable area of the printer. If you are using a PCL printer, then you will have to estimate the size of the printable area and resize your margins accordingly:
    1. Open the report in Oracle Reports Builder.
    2. Go to the Paper Layout view.
    3. Click the Margin tool on the top tool bar. A thick black line appears indicating where the body of your report ends and the margin begins.
    4. Click and drag the black line to the left approximately 0.5 inches.
    5. Save and run the report to the printer again.
    6. If necessary, repeat steps 4 and 5 to determine approximately where the printable area boundary is located and then ensure that your report body fits within that area.
  • If you are using a PostScript printer, you can get the printable area boundary to appear in the Paper Layout view as follows:
    1. Open the report in Oracle Reports Builder.
    2. Choose File > Page Setup.
    3. Verify that the margins are small and that the orientation is correct.
    4. Click OK. The Paper Layout view should now be able to read the boundary.
    5. Go to the Paper Layout view.
    6. Click the Margin tool on the top tool bar. A thick black line appears indicating where the body of your report ends and the margin begins. A black hashed line also appears indicating the boundary of the printable area.
    7. Ensure that the thick black line is inside of the black hashed line. If it is not, click and drag the black line inside the printable area.
    8. Click the Margin tool to leave margin mode.
    9. If necessary, reposition your fields to fit within the new body boundaries.
    10. Save and run the report to the printer.
  • For PCL, if it is still truncating, try using a fixed space font instead of a proportional font. Sometimes PCL printers have problems interpreting proportional space fonts and it leads to truncation. You should try using a fixed space font, such as Courier, and possibly font aliasing.


    Note:
    Default layouts are built against a generic printer. Each printer has its own printable area. As a result, you may have to reset the report to fit the printer. Ideally, if you know the various printers you will be using, you can design the report from the start to fit the printer with the smallest printable area.

Prints with lines to the right margin of the page. How can this be corrected?


This can depend on if they are white or black lines and if you can feel a texture on the paper. Most often the cause is a bad toner cartridge. If you are using generic toner cartridges, I would suggest trying a new HP one instead to see if it clears up. If you feel a deep texture to it, the fusing unit may be wearing out and need to be replaced.

Brother 5250dn All printed pages have a black line 1 1/16th inch from each margin down page. I have cleaned machine, doesn't help. What could be causing these two black lines and how do I get them gone?


Take out the drum and look at it. There will almost certainly be a line of damaged drum surface exactly on the drum where you describe it is on the paper.
replacing the drum is the only option .

Black lines


There is a small strip of glass that the document feeder uses. Once you clean off the section, the lines will go away. Even a tiny speck will cause that to happen.
