Printer leaves look of burn marks as granular shadow over page

While printer works and prints properly, there is a gray sheen looking like brownish-gray "burn" marks over entire page. When printing envelopes, the "burn" pattern is most pronounced over the seams of the envelope -- revealing the envelope flap pattern on the front of the envelope.

If the paper really is being burnt then there is a fault with the fuser roller temperature control. This would also make a smell. If this gray sheen is made of toner then this may be the laser unit not putting out enough power. The optics could be dirty. One thing to try before attempting repair- Reduce the print density to minimum in the printer advanced settings. This increases the Laser power. Good luck

Printing from coreldraw 5 to zebra p330i


Sounds as though your printer is dirty, there are unfortunately no different color matchin schemes for this particular printer. The printer operates on an RGB interface, even though it prints using YMC. As far as the speckled look, this typically is due to dust during printing.

When we attempt to print it leaves black streak marks. At first it printed all black and when we went to setup under maintainence we chose alignment and clean cartridges. This worked however we still see...


If an inkjet printer gives white streaks where it should be black, it means the ink is very low, or there is dirt under the nozzles preventing it from printing properly, or, in the case of non original cartridges, ink might be leaking which prevents the bubbles of ink to squirt onto the page.

If the streaks are black where it should be white, is sounds like some dust or fluff below the cartridge leaves ink smears on the page.

Brother MFC-6800 1. Prints with 3/8" blank vertical line down the entire page; 2. Prints with a couple of 1/16" blank vertical lines down the entire page; 3. Prints with some gray shadow...


This solution is unconventional but it worked for me. The black roller on my MFC had irregularities on it and was creating horrible printouts. I pulled out the drum and cartridge and cleaned the large black roller. I used furniture polish to make the roller very smooth. Now it prints really nice.

Printer won't print from my computer.


CHECK THESE THINGS IN THE CONTROLL PANEL, DEVICE MANAGER, NETWORKING AND SHARING, PROBLEMS AND REPORTS, SECURITY, WINDOWS SECURITY, WINDOWS FIREWALL.

NOT DOING THESE CHECKS IN THIS ORDER WILL BE A PAINFUL PROBLEM, CHECKING EVERYONE OF THESE AREAS, YOU WANT ALL GREEN MARKS, ************* NO

RED, ORANGE, YELLOW MARKINGS, THIS WILL STOP THE MACHINE FROM WORKING PROPERLY.*********************

THE SHARING AND NETWORKING WILL GIVE THE MACHINE AND THE OUT SIDE WORLD A WAY TO COMMUNICATE AND PRINTS AND SHARE DOCUMENTS.

LAST WINDOWS DEFENDER AND FIREWALL, ALSO WILL STOP DOCUMENTS FROM INTERING AND LEAVING THE COMPUTER.
I WOULD TURN EVERYTHING OF AND TURN ONE THING AT A TIME BACK ON UNTIL YOU FIND OUT WHITCH ONE IS GIVING YOU THE MOST PROBLEM. THAN TROUBLESHOOT THAT ON AT A LATER TIME WHEN YOU HAVE ALOT OF TIME TO DEVOTE TO THAT PROBLEM.

THAT IS ONE WAY THE OTHER WAY IS YOUR IS YOUR WAY.

Shadowing/graying with printing


Hi fa1103:
Gray background
1. Do not use media that has already been run through the printer.
2. Try using a different type of media.
3. Print a few more pages to see if the problem corrects itself.
4. Turn over the stack of media in the tray. Also, try rotating the stack 180°.
5. Open the Configure Device menu at the printer control panel. On the Print Quality
submenu, increase the TONER DENSITY setting. See the user guide.
6. Make sure that the environmental specifications for the printer are being met.
try these steps to see if they work for you.
