Inside the printer there is a piece called a "blade". After a sheet is printed then the blade's job is to run across the toner cartridge and clean up all the toner. If the blade is not working properly then you will get excess toner. So the blade needs to be changed. You can change it yourself, by looking for instructions off of the internet or have a repair shop do it...here is a website just to give you an idea of what I am talking about. Any questions let me know.

How do I clean toner from machine?


Probably it's the jammed paper that might caused the error. I suggest have it serviced by the technician. Be aware of the paper handling capacity of your machine to minimize jamming:

I have a Canon Imagerunner 1023if and have black smudges along the left edge of paper, both copies and printed directly from computer.


this is possibly a problem in the fuseing part of your machine, where the paper heats up at the back, the fuser roller could be worn out. and your toner could be sticking to it.

Toner smudges


no exact idea which exact part - However had a similar problem in my laser printer. I used a can of compressed air with the printer outside the building and sprayed the air on everything that the paper would come into contact with inside the printer with the toner cartridge removed out of the printer. And problem was resolved. I suspected the paper rollers . you can get a can of compressed air from electronic spare part type stores like Jaycar

I am getting white specks on all four colors on my phaser 8500 and some black smudges. I just did a smudge clean and it helped, but it didn't clear it.


Hello.

Try a laser printer roller cleaner (paper sheets), like PathKleen or Perfect Data. You may need to run sheets through several times before the cleaning is complete. Do not use a sheet more than once.

Hope this helps.

3 dots along the left margin of paper, after replacing the drum


Open the MP tray and place a new sheet of A4 paper on it.

Press and Hold the Clear/Back button and also press and hold the Left Arrow. The display should change to 'Drum Cleaning'

Press the OK button and it should clean the drum and print a sheet with smudges where your dots used to be.

You may need to repeat the procedure a few times.

Samsung scx5315f printing black smudge along edge of page


The fact that it's printing anything suggests that it is not a Toner problem. Remove the toner, and have a look at the run inside the printer, checking for any excess toner which is in there. Also, check the Drum and Imaging Unit for damage, wear and tear etc. There will also be a static strip near the imager, with a little tab which you can sweep across the unit to clean it.

Toner smudges along the extreme right side of the paper


If the smudges are gradually fading then it's likely just excess toner hitting the fuse drum. Try a few cleaning cycles/test prints and see if that makes it go away. If not, see if you can get a replacement toner.
