Laser Printers that printouts can be smudged usually means the Transfuser (the part that settles the toner onto paper) is not fully functioning or damaged. Simply replace it and it should be back to normal. However, these Transfusers are quite expensive. So you may be better off to get a quote for a new one if out of warranty.

Ghost images of the same printing repeated down the page


Run a half test. While printing a few pages, open the cover, pull out the toner and look down at the paper. If you see the ghost images replace the toner. If you don't see the ghost images, replace the fuser.

HP Laserjet 1012 - Little smudges on page.


You probably have an excesive amount of toner building up on your rollers or fuser. A cleaning done by a certified technician should take care of this problem for you.

Horizontal lines and smudges across the page at 1.5" intervals down the page.


Judging from the distance between the lines, you probably have a defective cartridge. Smudges are generally caused by a defective fuser, which means it's time to send the printer out for repair.

The printer is transferring ink from the top left of the paper all the way down in line with the rollers. It looks like a smudge but you can see the print. I have cleaned it, but still has the problem. Any...


Image problems on laser printers are almost always caused by the toner cartridge or the fuser. If you have already tried a new toner cartridge and that has not fixed the problem you need a new fuser. A fuser that is going bad will cause lines, smudges and ghost images. You can buy it alone or as part of the maintenance kit. www.printerworks.com is a good place for HP parts. Search by model number to see what you need.

Ghosting


fuser could be faulty

The document prints but leaves ghost images on the page also


A laserjet is different than a inkjet.
Ghosting is either the toner or the fuser:

This is the test to determine toner or fuser issue.
Print a test page
When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top to stop the machine
Remove the toner cart.
You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser)
If you can see the smudge or marks on the page the problem is most likely the cartridge but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.
Hope this helps

Printer is creating a crease and smudge down center of page.


There sounds like there is somthing in the path of the printhead. Using a flash light, remove back cover of machine and look for a small piece of paper,etc. Be careful not to jam anything in to th machine. It may take running a thick piece of paper through manually with your hands to remove the object.
