Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies
After paper jam cleared from Epson 610 Workforce I'm getting red, black and yellow smudges all down the right side of paper.
Chances are high that the process of clearing the jam has resulted in ink being released from the cleaning/resting pad area based over on the right hand side (where the printhead sits when not in use).
This waste ink has probable come into contact with the rollers and other parts over on the right edge of the paper.
You'll probably see this ink slowly fade out and disappear over time. If it doesn't however there's something effectively feeding things so check the resting pad for a loose tube, overflow, puddles, etc...
If there's anything like that, report back (preferably with images).

Your problem is due to a worn fuser unit (upper fuser roller).
The teflon coating has worn again, alowing the toner to stick to the roller and then "repeat" about 3x down the paper (getting fainter each time).
You need to order a new fuser unit.

Very nice trouble shooting. The image defect you describe point to the OPC or drum unit this is essentially the toner cart. In your case black. Measureing the distance between repetitive defects is a sure way of diagnosing problems such as yours. Again nice work.
Google repetitive defect ruler for your model to help in the future.
Hope this helps

Firstly you need to remove all toners, and drum, then vacume all interior.
Check the transfer belt, drum for any dirt or residues of yellow toner.
If cleaning doesnot help, change the dirty part.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the advice, I will give it a go tomorrow"
Welcome to FixYa.
Open the Automatic Document feeder and look for any paper left inside. If you forcefully removed the paper without opening the feeder, a mechanism could possibly occur in which case, servicing the printer is the best option.
Press OK, YES then OK to clear the jam message.
Note: For Legal Size paper, load up to 10 sheets only. For Letter Size paper, you can load up to 30 sheets. This is to prevent paper jams.
Thank you for using Fixya.
