Try resetting the drum counter:

open the front cover, press the blue button and keep it pressed until all the LEDs are lit - hold for a few seconds and then close the front cover.

My printer brother HL2170W has toner, the toner light is not flashing but whet its prints it comes blank


This sounds like an issue with either the toner cartridge or the drum unit. Have either of these consumables been changed recently? This should help identify the likely cause.

If the drum has been changed recently I would recommend cleaning the corona wire. If however the toner has been changed there isn't masses I can recommend in terms of trouble shooting. it may however be worth running off 15-30 pages in the hope of pulling the toner through.

Failing this I would recommend calling Brother technical support in case the issue is hardware related and not the fault of a consumable.

Why does my samsung scx5530fn printer constantly prints blank sheets of paper...we have turned it off/on; changed toner and it just decides to starting printing blank pages..anybody can help me i thank...


Please clean the drum and the fuser, also check the toner cartridges if there's any overflown toner powder spilled. The problem is caused when the toner waste tank in the drum is full or overflowing.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

The printer runs properly but will not print; A blank page cycles


It is not the toner. There are 2 things you can try yourself, anything else requires service. First try opeing and closing the right hand side door. Try this several times if necessary. There are contacts in this door that sometimes don't make contact and opening/closing the door will sometimes resolve blank copies. The other thing you can try is remove the toner then pull out and reseat the drum unit. Here again there are contacts that need to be made that can cause blank copies.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I'm getting ghost images on multi prints to the point it is unreadable, is this the drum or fuser?


The only way to tell is to start a print and power off when print is still inside. If you see the ghost before the fuser it's the drum, if clean before the fuser, it's the fuser. You can also open the back door and look at the fuser roller with a light, the fuser roller should be clean but if the roller has images it's time for a fuser.

After changing the toner cartridge at my sharp al 1552 the red light (signaling that the toner runs out) doesn't get out, although the exchange has been carried out according to the instuctions. What can I...


2 possibilities. One is that the cartridge you installed is used or bad. Turn the machine off then on...it should run for several minutes. See if the light goes out. The toner light by the way is the light that looks like 6 little dots in a stack. If the light you have on looks like a little barrel or battery then that is the drum light. You can reset that light with this procedure.
Reset the drum count by pressing "Clear" then "Exposure Mode" then "Clear" then "Exposure Mode"
Exposure mode is far left key on panel. You need to do this fairly quickly so that the display goes blank.
Once display goes blank then key in 24, then press print, then key in 7, then press print. You should now be getting flashing 000
Turn machine off then on and light should be gone.
Short version: C,far left,C,far left,24,print,7,print

Printer smudging caused by self-sealing envelope glue on drum


Drums are not hot, you can try to clean them, are they smudgy? More likely the glue came off when it hit the hot section check this area, be carefull not to scratch anything.

Dell printer 1700


First unplug power cord and plug back after 10 mins.
If problem persists, then it is probably a toner error, if the toner is nearly finished. In this case you will see the led flashing only when is printing. Sooner or later the printer will start printing blank or faded pages and you will need to change toner
When is not toner, with same symptoms as above, it can be drum error, in this case printer will keep printing but shows flashing light, at a certain point you will need to change drum kit.

If light flashes and printer does not print, then it is either paper jam inside, or one of errors above at final stage, or one of the door not well closed (check them all), or printer faulty (fuser, heads mechanics etc.), in this last case call service.

Blank trace appears on printed copy


replace the toner cartridge, this is a case of low toner.

NOTE: you should never clean the drum on the toner cartridge it is sensitive to light and touch.
