Question about Canon LASER SHOT LBP-2900 Printer

1 Answer

Vertical Ink smudge or smear

When printing, there is a vertical strip of smudged ink. It is not extra dark, it is just smeared and lighter, and it is always in the same place.Everything else on the page prints clearly and sharply, so I don't think it is out of ink. Suggestions?

The problem is with the printer head which is normal in Laser Printers. Try cleaning the printer head with a cotton cloth and it'll resolve the problem a very large extent.

SOURCE: smeared lines

Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

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.

Blurry Printing


Quite possibly, your Wave Amp board has failed. If so, it is more cost effective to purchase a new printer than to repair yours unless you can find used parts.

Currently, Xerox is offering a trade-up rebate on new solid ink printers.

Black smear of ink at end of lines


Please load the printer with at least 10 sheets of plain paper then press the start button. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains, streaks or smudges are still present, the printer may need service.
