There are three causes of toner not sticking (fusing) to the paper.

1. Poor quality remanufactured or 'compatible' toner cartridges, that don't have the correct toner in them. Laser printer toner, especially for colour laser printers , needs to be formulated for THAT particular printer 'engine'. All toner is NOT the same. A GOOD quality remanufactured cartridge that DOES have the right toner will be fine.

2. Faulty fuser. Particularly if the fusing is patchy. This is usually the fuser heat lamp that is starting to fail (will often blacken in patches on the lamp surface - not visible as this is inside the fuser pressure roller. A replacement fuser will fix this.


3. Too thick, or damp media If you are printing on card, and have not 'told' the printer that it is using something thicker than 80 gsm paper, the heat from the fuser just doesn't get through the media and heat the toner enough to fuse it. Setting the media type (in the printer driver) correctly will sort this out. If your media is damp, the moisture content will prevent the toner fusing. Ensure the paper is NOT damp or excessively cold.

I called Xerox and it seems that it's because the imaging unit is defective. They are seeding me one free of charge. Hope you can do the same...

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 6180 keeps saying load papertray with

When you adjust the length guides there are 3 little white switch actuators that eith do or do not actuate three little white switches inside the machine which tell the machine the position of the length guide.
For 11"paper only the bottom one should be sticking out to actuate the bottom switch inside the machine.
Make sure they are intact and that no torn off piece of paper is holding a switch actuate.
If you rmove the tray with a flashlight you can see the three switches inside the machine on the right about 2/3rds of the way back.
They should move freely but they do not go click when you press on them
I don't see anything that monitors the width of the paper in the tray..
If all that works, time to call service.

Clean printheads on Xerox phaser 6180


This type of print quality defect shows up if you have loaded the wrong type of paper in your machine and didn't remember to change the paper type (plain paper, card stock, labels, etc.).
This can also happen if the paper has a high moisture content, or if the humidity in the room is too much. Also make sure the room temperature is within its normal operating range (not too hot, not too cold).

The problem you describe could also be caused by using non-Xerox toner/drum units. Compatible toners don't work very well in Xerox printers.

Aside from those problems, the only other thing would be if the Fuser Assembly is near the end of its life...it will also cause some print quality problems like you are describing.

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.

TRY THIS

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.

Dell 3110cn Color Laser Printer Certain colors will not adhere to the page when printed on heavy paper. Combination of green/black wipes off the paper when rubbed.


Either the paper is just too thick for the printer to fuse the toner correctly, or you've NOT selected the right paper type (in the printer driver options.

If you're just printing that same as you would on ordinary A4 paper, the fuser can't get enough heat through the thick paper to fuse the toner.

May be a wrong toner problem if you've done this successfully before, but only had this problem since changing toner cartridge(s)
