My printer is leaving an imprint of the previous page on each new sheet on shiny label material I have been using this for a couple years for this job with this same material. This is a new problem.


There are couple possible problems here.
1. If you are reusing sheets of labels, the toner that is being printed on spots where labels are already removed will get picked up by the fuser and redeposited on the page.
2. The fuser is wearing out and toner is sticking to it and getting redeposited.
3. If you are not setting the paper type to labels, the wrong fuser temperature will be used which can cause this problem.

Keep in mind that life ratings for items like fusers are based on the following assumptions:

1. You only print on plain paper
2. Every print job consists of at least five pages.

Under these assumptions the life of a fuser in a 1215 is probably around 100K pages. Printing all single page jobs or difficult media like labels can drop that life expectancy to under 30K pages.

If you print a usage page for the printer it will show how many pages you have printed.

Our copier is copying in light shade. how to make it darker


To adjust the default lighter/darker setting

1. On the LaserJet 3015, press MENU/ENTER.

2. Use the < or the > button to select Copy setup, and then press MENU/ENTER.

3. Use the < or the > button to select Def. Light/Dark, and then press MENU/ENTER.

4. Use the < or the > button to adjust the setting. Move the slider to the left to make all of the

copies lighter than the original, or move the slider to the right to make all of the copies

darker than the original.
5. Press MENU/ENTER to save the selection.

Page 48 of the User Guide has instructions for adjusting the light/dark setting during a copy job.

Also see the Troubleshooting section of the User Guide for other possible reasons for light/faded copies.

If your copies continue to come out too light, you may need to clean the insert a new toner cartridge or change brands of toner. I tried several "generic" toner cartridges and refills, but my prints and copies were always faded or streaky. After going back to genuine HP cartridges, I haven't had any print quality problems.

A white streak appears on the right hand side of the print out


Hi,
If faded prints happen even after replacing the toner cartridge or if your current cartridge has enough toner, it is most likely be due to dust at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printer.

I have worked/ serviced similar Laserjet Printer with same issue.
Actually, faded prints are due the the dust/ toner dust accumulated on the optics (mirrors and lenses) inside the printer, which refect the laser beams to form prints. Hence the image is not produced properly. This needs professional hands for servicing and cleaning of the optics inside the printer.
Rest assure that the printer requires ONLY CLEANING OF THE MIRRORS, which are inside the printer. So, it is advised that you get the printer serviced by any printer repair/ service professional. (Please note that the mirrors, lenses and scanner assembly inside such printers is extremely complex and can get damaged very easily especially the mirrors).

Hope it would help. If you need any clarification, let me know
Good Luck!

My phaser 740 has print that flakes off when you print pictures with real dark areas. I assume it needs more fuser heat or less paper speed. The problem is I can' t figure out how to adjust either of these...


Recalibrate the colors. Flaking is sometimes caused by more ink/toner than can be fused to the media. There's a limit for the total amount of ink/toner. Yours may be set too high.
You'll need a copy of the Printer's User's Guide (also Downloadable from Xerox.com)

Controlling Color Density

When colors look faded, adjust the toner color density to extend the life of the components.

Print and use the Color Reference Page 1 In the printer's front panel, scroll to Calibrate Colors,

press Menu and print the Color Reference Page. 2 Compare the Color Reference Page to the Color Density

Samples on page 39. Make a note of the value (-10 to +10) for each color that most closely matches the samples.

3 Adjust the density for each color: Enter the value noted in Step 2 in the Calibrate Colors menu, under Adjust Each Color.

? Decrease color density: Press . ? Increase color density: Press --->.

4 Reprint the Color Reference Page; check your adjustments

After putting in a new toner it only prints black pages


Seen this in HP and Brother lasers; I have no reason to doubt it is the same for yours. You have a defective toner cartridge; return it to the place that you bought it for an exchange.

Dark lines appear on each page I print on the printer. I have cleaned every roller, dumped the old toner and added new toner.


Are the lines vertical or horizontal?

vertical lines can be caused by several things.
Since you said that cleaned the rollers, then here are other options
1: Most common is a bad toner cartridge.
2: try cleaning the fuser entrance guide.
3: could be a defective formatter - formatter replacement the fix.
4: worn fuser. fuser replacement is the fix.

horizontal lines are probably repetitive down the page, and are usually caused by a defective toner cartridge or fuser assembly. occasionaly a transfer roller will cause it as well.

Toner loves to get baked onto the fuser and cause all kinds of print problems. Not much you can do but to replace the fuser when this happens.

Horizontal streaks on pages


Streaks at 2.82 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the fusing roller of the printer. In some cases, these marks can be cleared up by running a cleaning page through the unit. Laser Printer Cleaning sheets can be purchased at your local printer/office supply store. If the marks persist, this can indicate a more serious problem with the fusing roller that would require service attention.

Streaks at 3.74 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the image drum of the printer. There is no way to repair a damaged photosensitive image drum, so in the case that it is scratched or otherwise damaged, the entire CRU (toner/drum cartridge) would require replacement to clear up these marks.

Cleaning a laser printer can solve minor problems, maintain print quality, and prolong periods between professional cleanings. Clean your printer when print quality deteriorates or when you change toner cartridges. Manually Cleaning Inside the Printer Steps: 1. Unplug the printer from the surge suppressor. 2. Remove the internal paper trays. 3. Remove the toner cartridge and place it on a piece of scrap paper. 4. Clean inside the toner cavity with a dry, lint-free cloth and brush (if a brush is supplied with the printer). 5. Clean the printer mirror gently with the brush. Don't touch the mirror if a brush isn't provided. 6. Wipe away dust and spilled toner. Remove paper fragments. 7. Clean the rollers, but don't touch the sponge roller. 8. Replace the toner cartridge. Tips: To remove unfused toner from the rollers following a paper jam, print 5 to 10 blank pages on scrap paper. Wipe toner from clothing if necessary, then immediately wash toner-soiled clothes in cold water. Go to your printer manufacturer's Web site (see Related Sites) for detailed cleaning instructions. Warnings: Don't use any liquid cleaners inside the printer. Initiating Automatic Cleaning Through Printer Software Steps: 1. Open the printer software by double-clicking on a printer icon or specific printer utility program, or opening a document and then selecting Print from the File menu. 2. In the printer software, look for a button labeled Options, Troubleshooting, Toolbox, Printer Utilities or something similar. (This varies by manufacturer.) 3. Follow the instructions on the screen. 4. Repeat the cleaning process if the results aren't satisfactory.
