You are going to have to remove the cartridge, unplug power from the unit and find the rollers that the paper rolls through. These can be removed and cleaned. Windex works well as a cleaner. After they are dry, replace them and reinsert your toner cartridge. The black trails will be gone.

    ? Inappropriate, have you tried this yet? The only thing else you can do is purchase a maintenance kit and replace the rollers. How is this inappropriate?

Printing not dark enough or varied in darkness
If the print is a dismal gray rather than a sharp black, you are probably almost out of toner. This can manifest itself evenly across the entire page or in splotches or stripes, depending on the printer.

Sometimes you can wring a little bit more out of a toner cartridge by taking it out and gently shaking it from side to side (never up and down, as toner can spill out). You can also try turning up the printer’s contrast adjustment, if it has such a knob (usually on the back side if it exists). Faded print can also result from a dirty corona wire, because a dirty wire inhibits a full electrical charge from being passed.

If the printouts are consistently varied in density, and you have to frequently remove the toner cartridge and shake it to redistribute the toner inside it, make sure the printer is sitting on an even, flat surface.

Horizontal black lines
A horizontal black line on the printout is probably the result of a dirty or damaged roller. There are lots of rollers in the printer, and you can use the space between the lines on the page to determine which roller is causing the problem. Measure the distance between the errant black lines on the page and then use Table A to determine which part might be causing the problem. Table A
Distance between lines
Faulty part
0.5”
Registration assembly
1.5”
Upper registration roller

Lower registration roller
2.0”
Toner cartridge developer roller
2.56”
Lower fusing assembly roller
3.16”
Upper fusing assembly roller
3.75”
Toner cartridge photo drum

Regularly spaced splotches
If there are evenly spaced black spots but they don’t extend all the way across the page, the problem is probably a scratch or flaw in the drum or a build-up of toner on the fusing roller. If the spots are less than three inches apart vertically, it’s probably the drum, because the drum has a larger diameter than the fusing roller.

Vertical black line on edge of page
This can indicate an almost empty or faulty toner cartridge or (less frequently) some spilled toner inside the printer.

Just replaced black cartridge in my 2600n color laser. I have smudged about a half inch wide 2/3rds over the right of each page. It only smudges in black. I have recalibrated several times. Printed at...


If this just started after you replaced the toner cartridge, one would have to say that it is a bad toner cartridge.
Print something that smudges. Pull down the front cover and look at the cartridges. Pay attention to the top one(black).
Look at the drum on that cartridge. You should see the toner sitting there. Compare it to the other cartridges which should be clean.

An inch wide streak appears on the right side of a laser printer printed page.


If you can rub the toner off the paper it is the fuser.

fuser, the part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the
medium. It consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner
is transferred to the paper, the fuser applies heat and pressure to
ensure that the toner stays on the paper permanently. This is why
paper is warm when it comes out of a laser printer.

For toner problem:

Do a half test as follows -
Print one sheet from the fold down tray, just as the trailing edge of the paper
goes into the printer open the toner door to stop the printer. Remove the toner
cartridge, are the marks on the paper that you can see in the printer? If they
are there the cartridge needs replacing.

Prints black vertical line at bottom of page on every print. HP 8550gn


This should help -

Developer streak
Developer streak is characterized by a line of dark or missing toner
that stretches from the leading edge to the trailing edge. Replace the
toner cartridge corresponding to the color of the developer streak (for
example, if the streak is magenta, replace the magenta toner
cartridge).

Repetitive defects troubleshooting
Repetitive defects are defects that occur in the same vertical position
on the page, but not necessarily on every page. Most repetitive
defects are caused by problems with one of the following, and are
indicated by the positioning of the defect on the page:
 developer roller (at 38 mm)
 charging roller (at 44 mm)—see additional information under
“Charge roller set” on page 454.
 cleaning roller (at 56 mm)
 developer DSD wheels (at 65 mm)
 transfer roller (at 66 mm)
 transfer drum (occurs once per 11-by-17 inch or A3-sized page,
or every other letter- or A4-sized page)
 fuser (at 150.5 mm)
 imaging drum (at 195 mm)
 transfer belt (at 222 mm)
