Problem: Your Printer Prints, but Output Is Smudged or Garbled If your printout is not as you expected, there might be several causes. The most likely cause, believe it or not, is our old friend the poorly connected cable. If all the instructions don't make it from the computer to the printer, your printout will be incomplete, if not totally out of whack. Check all cable connections to ensure a good throughput of data. If that doesn't fix the problem, just change the printer cable. An old or damaged cable could be causing your problems.

double printing and smudging - tip_icon.gif Printing the printer's self-test page is also a good way to determine whether the problem is in the printer or in the computer—or somewhere in-between.



Another cause of print garbage might be the printer itself. If you have a low or old toner cartridge in a laser printer or a near-empty ink cartridge in an inkjet printer, your printout will be lighter than normal, perhaps even unreadable. If necessary, change the cartridge and run the print job again.
If you're using a laser printer, you might get black streaks on your output. This problem is most often caused by an old toner cartridge, or by a dirty roller or printer cleaning bar. If you replace the toner cartridge and clean the suspect parts (using a cotton swab) and you still experience black streaks, your printer might need service.
If you're using an inkjet printer, it's possible that your print jets are clogged. You'll need to unclog the print jet by inserting a small pin into the jet.
It's also possible that a paper misfeed in your printer caused the printout to become smudged or out of line; if this is the case, straighten the paper feed and start the print job again.
An incorrect printer setup in Windows can also cause unusual printouts. Make sure that Windows is configured for the exact type of printer you're using. Also make sure that you have the correct landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) printing option selected.
If none of this works, you probably have a problem somewhere in your printer. Although a bad printer port on your PC could be the culprit, more than likely some internal problem with your printer is causing the poor printout. (You can confirm this by printing a self-test page; if it looks bad, the problem is in your printer.) Consult your friendly repair center.
Problem: Your Printed Page Looks Half-Finished If you're trying to print a document with a lot of graphics (especially on lower-priced laser printers), you might find that your printer doesn't have enough memory to print the entire document. What you'll get is about half the document—and not always a contiguous half! You can do one of several things to rectify the problem:

  • Add more memory to your printer. If you do a lot of heavy graphics printing, you probably need at least 1MB of RAM installed in your printer. You might be able to add the memory yourself, or you might want to have a qualified laser printer technician do the job for you.
  • Instruct Windows to print this document at a lower resolution. Go to the Printer Properties dialog box for your printer and select the Graphics tab (if your printer has this option). Select a lower resolution (which requires less memory and gives you less finely detailed output) and see if you can now print your document.
  • Simplify your document. If you're using a lot of different fonts and graphics, take some out. It's not an ideal solution, but it might be the only way you'll get this particular document printed on time!
Problem: Your Printer Prints, but the Fonts Aren't Correct If you create a document on a PC with one set of fonts installed, and try to print it on another PC with different fonts installed, you could be in for a real surprise! Windows will try to "match" missing fonts, but quite often the match leaves a lot to be desired—resulting in different line lengths and page breaks than what you had originally. Your options are to install the missing fonts on the PC you're printing from, or change the fonts in the document in question. (A word to the wise: stick to common fonts such as Arial and Times New Roman if you think you'll be sharing a document on multiple PCs.)
thats all good luck.

Smudges are most likely from the toner cartridge. If you can take your finger and run over the print and it smudges, then it is the fuser.

Take the toner cartridge out of the printer. Shake it side to side. Reinstall it and print something.
See if that fixes the output.
Could also be the transfer roller.

Printer is printing words unclearly and smudged . Also a faint outline of the letters from upper section of page is printed on the lower part so page looks very dirty


This is likely a failed fuser unit that will need to be repaired or replaced depending on page count. You can remove the fuser to look and see how it is. Unplug printer, turn printer around so that you are facing the back. Open the back where you would normally open to either remove jams or have straight path printer. Where that door swings on the left hand side there is a finger notch. Press in and remove the back door. On either side of the fuser is a blue latch. Squeeze these and pull on the fuser. Look into the fuser from the side where paper goes in and check the condition of the upper brown roller. If it is dirty and toner and it looks like there is toner baked on it then is definietly the cause of your problem. If your page count is over 150,000 I would just go ahead and install a maintenance kit in the printer.

Hi Mike13660,

Usually the fault you are describing is caused by the fuser section being left in envelope mode.
Open the right hand side door, then lift the grey fuser cover up. Look at the levers on the fuser unit, make sure they aren't pointing at the envelope symbol. If they are, push them upwards. then close everything and try again.

Every time I print,the right hand side of the page


Epson inkjet printer or Epson laser printer?

If inkjet, then run the Epson software to "clean" the print-heads.

If laser, then the "fuser" (which uses heat to bond the ink to the paper) is not working -- touch the paper, and see if the left side is warm while the right side is cool.

IBM Infoprint 1352 Laser missing an inch of test on the left hand side


could be, but first take out the cartridge then look inside the unit there is a black roller, kind of spongy or hard rubber, is the black part towards the right? grab it and give it a tug and see if you can SLIDE it to the left if so then it needs to be replaced, that is your problem.

 

It could also be the fuser, are the copies on the left coming out smudged or with a grainy shadow? then it's the fuser.
