Re: Toner c8061x

If the line only prints with your new toner cartridge that means that the cartridge is defective. You can inspect the drum to see if there is something stuck in the center of it. If not, try to return it and get another one.

My HP LaserJet 1300 printer smudges the entire document and the toner is very faint. The cartridge has toner in it.

It means your machine needs cleaning. You can purchase cleaning sheets from the office supply store, and insert it like a regular document, hit print, and the dirt comes off.

Hp laserjet 4100 show message "Toner out". I can't print anything. Help me!!!

The toner cartridge has run out of toner.
Depending on how the printer has been configured, it will either continue to print or stop.
Due to the resolution of the toner level sensor, it is possible that a small amount of toner (less than one percent) might still be present in the cartridge.
1. If the printer has stopped, you can resume printing by pressing GO for each job.
2. Replace the toner cartridge.

Canon MFC-9150c Printing repeat down right side of paper only. Everything in center and on left prints fine. Tried a new toner, and visually inspected inside of machine. The repeat is very faint, but is...

You will need to replace the fuser. What has happended is the hot roller has lost its teflon coating and this is allowing the toner to stick to it, therefore the stuck toner is repeating do the edge of the paper until it disappears. A new fuser will cure it. It is user fittable to. You must have the power off when you change it. There is no reset for it just change it and power up and all will be fine.

16 toner low

A laser printer needs toner to print, when this runs out the printer will print either blank or very faint images.
You need to replace the toner cartridge with a new one or a re-manufactured toner cartridges. Re-manufactured toner cartridges are cheaper than new toner cartridges for your model printer.

You can get a few more prints out of your toner cartridge by removing the toner cartridge from the printer and giving it a few horizontal shakes then place it back into the printer.

Printer will not read toner.

Did it ever work? If it was printing before, what happened right before the toner error appeared. Did you replace the toner(this is an HP toner cartridge, right?), did you have a paper jam....?

When copying or printing, there is a whitish strip down the center where the rollers are. Print in this area is very faint. Thank you for any advice.

Remove the toner cartridge and while keeping relatively level, shake it from side to side. Re-install and try a test print. If the light band has gone away then problem solved. It does mean that your toner crtridge is probably starting to get low on toner. 90% of the time, print quality issues on HP lasers are toner cartridge related.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

You either have a defective black toner, a bad fuser or transfer belt. From my experence it is usually a bad toner cartridge. After you print a couple of pages, pull the black toner and see if there is anything on the drum. If there is try shaking the toner, sometimes toner does like dirt and clogs up. If you still have problem you will have to try another toner. I know that is not cheep, but I don't know any other way.

I am getting a faint line all down the page

Most likely you have a defective black toner cartridge. Open the front shutter on the black toner and look at the drum. If you see the drum has toner on it corresponding to the line down the page, you found the problem. If you can't see anything on the drum try printing a page and then interrupting the printout while the page is still in the printer. If you see the line on the page before it goes through the fuser, (the last roller thing on the top of the printer) then it still is the toner cartridge. If it occurs only after the fuser then it, the fuser, is at fault.
