Question about Canon LASER SHOT LBP-2900 Printer
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!
