    I am not a techincal type so my understanding of the answer is similar to how I understand what my mechanic tries to explain how to fix a problem with my car. Diagrams would be helpful to my understanding.

NOPE - don't even try to do this - Replace the entire fuser, these have a film roller and it's not worth trying to rebuilt - replace the fuser and you should be fine, To take the top off is a pain , the fuser sits on top of this Printer so it's difficult- either call a Color Printer tech or buy a rebuilt fuser , I wish i could give you our company info, however, i been informed not too Sorry , fixya.com rules not mine.

Hi, I have a Brother 7820N and every time we print, we get a vertical smudge down the middle of the page. The machine is printing, but this awful "smear" lined each page printed. Any assistance is...


I would try a new print cartridge. There should be a cartridge cleaner built into the machine settings. Also the ink reservoir might need to be cleaned.

4 - black ink smudges (1/32" wide x 1/16" high) in right margin


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

HP 3050 vertical black lines during fax


OK, from the desciption i can assume several things here are some option.
If by receipt you are talking about the confirmation the unit prints the the problem is likely dirty glass.
You would also get the lines when you make a copy using the ADF.
Open the lid there are two areas of glass the thin strip is likely dirty and needs to be cleaned.

If by receipt you mean pages you receive from someone else, and not printed or copied on your machine, then their machine has the condition described above.

If everything has the lines then you have a toner or fuser problem:
This is the test to determine toner or fuser issue.
Print a test page
When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top to stop the machine
Remove the toner cart.
You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser)
If you can see the smudge or marks on the page the problem is most likely the cartridge but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.
Hope this helps

- Try to reallign the cartridge, run a print test, after that if the issue still persist - uninstall and reinstall software - run test and re-allign again the cardtridge using software. run print test again.
