    I have a similar problem. The center of the page prints very dark, and there's a shadow image that runs about 3 inches down from the original image. I cleaned the drum in the toner cartridge (which was clean anyway) and the soft roller it makes contact with. What else do I need to do?

How do I fix double printing


Not sure what you mean by double printing.

Is it printing a ghost of what you print further down the page. Or is it mis-aligning the characters so it appears to have a shadow on each character?

Two side copy ka tareeqa tell me


DOUBLE SIDED PRINTING USING A SINGLE SIDED PRINTER

If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printer cannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn the page upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for the rest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up on both sides of the page so it reads correctly.

How do I get rid of shadows on my printing from my HP Photosmart C3180 printer? There is an extra shadow behind EVERY single piece of text. It makes the whole page look blurry. It isn't as if t


I have a Canon printer. Whenever pictures or text gets a double or blurry image I open the printer solutions menu. It sounds as though there is a problem with inkjet alignment. By clicking the realignment button the printer will automatically realign the jets. I usually test the alignment by printing a page from that program. All the line segments should line up.

Quilt y of print !, it gives double printing on page one is print of original doc.& second as its image what should i do to improve its print quilt y. i will be thank full to you


Hi,
Dots, Lines, shadows and smudges on the printouts are due to dirty/ deteriorating cartridge and cleaning the green drum of the cartridge may help temporarily. Take out the cartridge and gently clean the roller/ green drum with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth wiping off the toner dots marks/ lines.
Also, make sure that the visible inside of the printer is clean and ther is no spilled toner inside, which sometimes results in dots. Double printing is also due to the deteriorating cartridge. The drum is not getting clean after its each rotation and hence the remaining toner/ image is transferred to the paper resulting in double printing. So, it is recommended that clean the drum etc (this would help temporarily). Also, make sure that the toner cartridge is in good working condition. If not you may replace the cartridge.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.


GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

Help! My printer is printing text and then leaving like a shadow or very light imprint of that text on other pages. Too, there are a few ink splotches here and there on the various pages. Does the printer...


First, if you have one available swap out the toner cartridge. It is possible on this series for the toner cartridge to cause double imaging. This is especially true if the double imaging is across the entire page. If the double imaging is in more of a streak or line down the page especially on one edge then is it more likely to be a fuser film going bad. You can replace the fusing unit yourself if you want. Just do a google search for HP 4350 fuser unit (going by the picture in your post)
About $150 to $200
If you can find a guy, you can have just the fuser film replaced in your fuser unit at a cost of around $175 for parts and labor.
The most expensive route is to have a service company replace the fuser. They will charge you around $300 parts and labor.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Double sided printing Pixma MP520


here's how:

print double sided pages

1. Set your computer software for double sided printing if you have a printer that is compatible. Double sided printers are generally professional style machines, and most offices, schools and libraries will have them. On a PC, go to the drop down "File" menu and select "Double Sided Printing" under the "Preferences" or "Properties" window and print. If you have a MAC, click "Copies and Pages" under the "File" menu, select "Layout" and then click on "Long-Edged Binding" and print.
2.Print double sided with your standard home printer, again, by setting your PC writing software. When you are ready to print, click on the drop down "File" menu and select "Print." From the "Print" window select "odd pages only," or "even pages only."
3.Set your odd and even pages a bit differently if you are working with MAC writing software. Select "Print" from the drop down "File" menu and click on the arrow to drop the "Copies & Pages" menu. Under the "Copies & Pages" menu, select "Paper Handling" and then click on "Odd Numbered Pages" or "Even Numbered Pages."
4.Select "Odd Pages Only" or "Odd Numbered Pages" and then print as usual. It is a good idea to mark the top of your first page with a pencil so that you know the direction and side of the page your printer prints. Use the mark to determine how to turn your pages and place them back in the printer. Select "Even Pages Only" or "Even Numbered Pages" and print again. $('.Article .Steps .Image').each(function(i,e){ e = $(e); e.find('img').error(function(){ $(this).unbind(); e.remove(); }); });
