Ink smudges on the right side of the paper

When I am printing documents I often get black smudges on the right side of the paper. This happens often when I am printing an item with a lot of black ink (i.e. a clip art image that is mostly black). The smudges look like a duplication of items on the document, but placed lower on the document.

Hi,

Your problem is due to a worn fuser unit (upper fuser roller).

The teflon coating has worn again, alowing the toner to stick to the roller and then "repeat" about 3x down the paper (getting fainter each time).

You need to order a new fuser unit.

Make sure you order the currect voltage (US or UK)

Check for any small paper jam. Check the rollers, also use an alcohol swab to clean the rollers and check for ink leaking. Check you ink pad, it could be time for a new one.

There are black ink smudges on the bottom corners and edges of my color prints on velvet fine art paper. How can I stop that from happening. I already cleaned the heads twice. The prints are great...


The R2400 has an option to load paper on-top (Epson calls it the Automatic Document Feeder) and at the back. Based on the printer's User Guide the Velvet Fineart Paper should be loaded at the back. (Epson called is the Manual Single Sheet Feed).

Look at the User's Guide availabe on their website.

Very nice trouble shooting. The image defect you describe point to the OPC or drum unit this is essentially the toner cart. In your case black. Measureing the distance between repetitive defects is a sure way of diagnosing problems such as yours. Again nice work.

Google repetitive defect ruler for your model to help in the future.

Hope this helps

Black smudges on printed page


Are you sure this is a Designjet 450 (large format printer) and not a Deskjet 450 (portable printer)? The following assumes you have wispy black streaking on the printed side of the paper. If the streaking is on the back side then post more details of the printer model and the issue.

In either case the most likely cause is a buildup of fibers on the underside of the printheads or carriage, causing wisps of black ink to be dragged on the paper when the carriage reverses direction. You can clean the printer as shown at the following (though the details will be somewhat different for the Designjet or Deskjet....).

Ink


There is a problem with your fuser assembly. It is not heating up enough to burn the ink onto the paper. This is usually replaced by a tech.
