You need do follow steps:
1) take out the cartridge find a cover there is the drum inside, the drum you can see the color on the drum surface
2) check out and clean any pieces of paper or dirty waste toner stuck there, because there is a waste toner cleaner on the drum surface which is like a long rubbon strip (something like that) you can spin anyway a little to clean.
3) if you check out any different color (vertical round drum), that is the drum surface worn or scratched. you can see the worn area show light color than normal area.
so you need change it better. 4) if the color all very same and still not fix, you need check again something stuck the drum surface near cleaner rubbon.

hope help you fix it, please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks! keep in touch your question please.

Try printing a test page. Is it also blank? If so, you should check your ink system (cartridges full, etc.)

DELL 1600N


If it makes verticle lines only when using the document feeder it is most likely a dirty glass strip over the scanner light bar. If it makes verticle lines in all modes (printing, flat bed scanning/copying, receiving faxes) it could be the fuser or a dirty glass over the laser where ever the laser images to a drum roller (usually a larger green roller). It is possible that this green drum roller is inside the toner - if so - replacing the toner cartridge could fix it. Maybe you could try an old used toner to see of the problem changes - if so - it is very likely that a new toner would fix your print quality issue.

Printer Problem


Clean the small glass strip on the left side of the scanner. There is probably some dirt there and will only show up when using the ADF.
