Re: horizontal bands

Toner Cartridge. 98% Odds


Two inch's is the width of the thing causing you problems that thing is probally the drum, sounds like it might of been light exposed, anyway replace toner cartridge..


. if you remove catridge and gently turn over and slide back a black cover in centre you will find the suspect drum.

by the gears on the edge you can turn turn it gently one way it and you can get messy if you turn it the wrong way, part of the surface will of lost its colour a little.

Canon LBP 2410 Lazer Colour Printer -

Printing not dark enough or varied in darkness
If the print is a dismal gray rather than a sharp black, you are probably almost out of toner. This can manifest itself evenly across the entire page or in splotches or stripes, depending on the printer.

Sometimes you can wring a little bit more out of a toner cartridge by taking it out and gently shaking it from side to side (never up and down, as toner can spill out). You can also try turning up the printer’s contrast adjustment, if it has such a knob (usually on the back side if it exists). Faded print can also result from a dirty corona wire, because a dirty wire inhibits a full electrical charge from being passed.

If the printouts are consistently varied in density, and you have to frequently remove the toner cartridge and shake it to redistribute the toner inside it, make sure the printer is sitting on an even, flat surface.

Horizontal black lines
A horizontal black line on the printout is probably the result of a dirty or damaged roller. There are lots of rollers in the printer, and you can use the space between the lines on the page to determine which roller is causing the problem. Measure the distance between the errant black lines on the page and then use Table A to determine which part might be causing the problem. Table A
Distance between lines
Faulty part
Registration assembly
Upper registration roller
Lower registration roller
Toner cartridge developer roller
Lower fusing assembly roller

Toner cartridge photo drum

Regularly spaced splotches
If there are evenly spaced black spots but they don’t extend all the way across the page, the problem is probably a scratch or flaw in the drum or a build-up of toner on the fusing roller. If the spots are less than three inches apart vertically, it’s probably the drum, because the drum has a larger diameter than the fusing roller.

Vertical black line on edge of page
This can indicate an almost empty or faulty toner cartridge or (less frequently) some spilled toner inside the printer.

This is most likely to be a toner cartridge issue. Either a leaking cartridge or one with damage on the roller of the drum. This is especially likely if it occurred just after changing a toner.

If however the transfer belt of this printer is easily accessible from your printer (I am not massively familiar with this model) it may be worthwhile wiping this down gently with a clean piece of kitchen tissue. This will look like a foot wide sheet of plastic wrapped around two rollers.

Lastly it could be a small roller with residual toner toner powder on it that is repeating down the page. This could be hard to track down, but much like the transfer belt this will get flushed out with continued printing anyway.

Xerox phaser 6180. Printing 3 blue horizontal lines spaced evenly apart on printed page. New toners. Could it be fuser? transfer roller?

Just because they are new toners, doesn't mean they can't be faulty.

Faults that show in just a single colour are almost always related to THAT colour toner cartridge.


If you still have your old cyan toner, swap the chip from your new toner and put the old toner in the printer, then test.

If the lines are gone, it's the NEW cyan toner cartridge.

Print quality: dark faded, but continuous

Open top cover and remove toner, shake toner cartridge and try a test print. IF image good then problem is low toner level in cartridge.

Bad Printing and Stripes on Printed Sheets on HP 1100A

It isn't a fuzer problem it is most likly a image drum problem. To fix you have two choices replace the image drum with a oem part or a refurbished part or replace the printer. sometimes it is cheaper to get a replacement printer than to replace this part.
