The ghosting occurs at 57mm - 2 and 1/2 inches I believe it is the fuser. Can you confirm? Also the prices seems to run about $150. ANy recommendations on where to purchase? Is it worth fixing? Is it simple to replace assuming I have few technical skills.
I was able to jury rig a fix by doing the following: 1)Load plain paper in tray 2 2)left arrow to 'system service' press green check 3) left arrow to 'clean' press green check 4) Print your doc. It should print clean. Unfortunately you have to run this between each print. wicked awful (especially since I had 100 copies to print)..but worked
You are most likely correct. this is called fuser offsetting, to check it out, stop the paper being printed MID CYCLE open the front door just when you think the paper is behind it..., pull the paper off the transfer belt. Is the ghost there? Probably not, and if it isnt, then it is your fuser. I can lead you to a reputable supplier. You can buy QUALITY rebuilt fusers with great warranties at prices well less than new OEM.

Most of the cases fuser assembly or supplies are causes of ghost image. If image is not properly transferring on media causes transfer roller or ETB. Do this small exercise: Give print command, wait till paper grabs, once paper entered in cartridge area, power it off, open top & front cover, remove paper and see the print quality.Observed any ghost image what you observed? No ghost image? then problem with fuser assembly..
1.Remove fuser assembly, check any toner particles deposited on surface of fuser transfer roller or heater roller.. if found clean carefully with good cotton cloth while fuser having certain temperature,pl avoid metal & sharp objects to clean.. 2. Clean paper path roller(You can observe the rollers to push the paper to reach the destination) I hope this exercise will resolves the issue..
Hello, The problem you are having is caused by the fuser. The fuser is the part in the printer that heats up and basically melts ( fuses) the toner to the page. The fuser has a heat roller that is coated with teflon, your fuser coating has worn off in spots so the toner is sticking to the roller and causing the ghost image. You will need to order a replacement fuser. You can do a search on Google to find a replacement, the parts number is RM1-1082.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
Yes, It sounds like a ghosting issue. Several components can cause a ghosting issue. The distance between the first occurance(the one on purpose) and the second occurance(ghost image) can determine the part of the machine causing the image problem

Envelopes can be printed from tray 1 or 2. Select the type of envelope you are using from the PRINT dialog box or the driver. In your program, set the margins. Typical margins for a commercial #10 or DL envelope would be: Return Address Top margin 15mm(0.6 Inch) Left margin 15mm(0.6 Inch), Delivery Address Top margin 51mm(2 Inches) Left margin 89mm(3.5 Inches). For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15mm (0.6 Inch) from the edges of the envelope. Avoid printing on the seams of the envelope. Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives that are compatible with the heat and pressure of the printer fuser. the extra flaps and seals can cause wrinkling, creasing and feed jams, could even damage the fuser.
It is a massive pain but a solution that worked for me is to run a 'clean' after every card stock sheet. I know it's wicked awful but it actually worked and I had to run 100 times (one for each good color card stock) First put plain paper in tray 2 Next Hit left arrow until you get to 'system service' and press green check Next then go to 'clean' and press check Now it should print a clean image without ghosting
