In addition to the good suggestion previously posted, it is possible that your toner waste bottle got overly full and that waste toner has backed up into the opc unit (which may be carefully disassembled and cleaned.

My Magicolor 2300dl prints light (black and/or colors) on the left side. The right side is fine. I changed the black toner and the drum but no improvement.

This is caused by dirty laser optics. This is a common problem in this series as well as similar HP series color laser printers. You can try cleaned the laser optics **** glass from the cartridge side of the printer but almost always the problem is internal in the optics unit and this requires quite a bit of dis-assembly of the printer. All I can say is if you remove the toner and drum cartridges you will need to look for a thin strip of glass running from one side to the other. Use a cuetip cotton swab to clean the glass then re-install the cartridges. If your lucky this will eliminate or at least make it better. If not then you will need to have the printer serviced.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Our 2300DL is leaving streaks when printing

Out of one or more toners. If you have removed and replaced a cartridge in error the % remaining is reset to 100%. Try to determine which color is missing in your print out (usually black), and then follow menu instructions to replace that cartridge. The ends are color coded so be sure you change the correct one. This will insure the remaining cartridges % remaining is correct.

I have a magicolor 2300DL. I recently cleaned it out- took out all of the pre-assembled rollers by taking them out. blowing them with canned-air and putting them back into the unit. Have done this several...

If you have had the same problem before, it may indicate something is wrong that you were inadvertantly and temporarily resolving the symptom for.

First, try printing color. If that works, you likely have a clogged black toner cartridge. Moisture in the cartridge may be the culprit. Replace the cartridge or the toner, doing a thorough dry cleaning with your canned air.

Second, check for a short-circuit. Since a short is not detected by the logic controller, it may be extremely difficult to find. For a simple check, remove all of the units that you had removed before, reposition all of the exposed wires you can, and clean any contacts with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol. If that doesn't do the trick, repeat the process for the printer internals with all of the removable units out of the way.

Magicolor 2300dl ghosting and smear - black only

if only black does that, then it can be black toner, but the best way to find out, print something and when printer starts to take paper open front door, remove waste toner box and take out pc drum and transfer belt and check the printed page from there, if it seems ok, print nex page and open door when page comes out from fusin unit, if quality goes bad before fusing unit, it may lead to 2'nd transfer roller / pc drum and transfer belt quality was ok / if after FU then you have a problem in fusing unit.
