Hi gpeirce:
Ghosting is the result of a worn fuser assembly. Try to print a half page by printing a document and then try to open the top while the paper is going under the toner cartridge. You have to listen to the paper moving through the paper path.You will see that the paper has print on it but not the hole document. This will tell you if the toner cartridge is bad or the fuser assembly.

Hope this helps

Hp 8000n is ghosting excess toner on prints. Why?


Perhaps, but first clean up the exposed parts of the printer where the toner may travel before it makes contact with the paper. Also, the fuser may need to be cleaned or replaced. Post your problem directly with HP on the HP website.

Ghosting


Normally ghosting is caused by a bad fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1)
Print something. As the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the cover..
Look at the paper. If there is no ghosting, the fuser is bad. If there is ghosting, could be a cartridge drum.
Follow these steps print a Print quality troubleshooting page to identify which print cartridge is causing the issue.
  1. Open Toolbox .
  2. Click the Help folder, and then click the Troubleshooting page.
  3. Click Print , to print the page. The page prints five bands of color, which are divided into four overlapping sections. By examining each section, you can isolate the problem to a particular print cartridge. Figure 4: Print quality troubleshooting page bandsc01417618.gif 1 - Yellow 2 - Cyan 3 - Black 4 - Magenta

Which way do I insert the transparency into my front loading MP 560 Canon Printer.Shiny side up or down Thank you V


It depends on which side you want to print on. For transparencies, you want to print on one side only. Most likely, you want to print on the shiny side; essentially as if it were a glossy photo. Load the transparency so that the shiny side gets printed on. Don't know that part? Front loading printers are the easiest to determine which side is printed on. Look at where the paper goes in and where it comes out. Think about it; for single sided printing, the paper isn't being turned around inside; merely rolled around an internal roller, then back out. Watch what happens to the paper the next time you print on a single side. See if the top of the printed page came out first, or last.

The most common designs of front-loaders have the paper come out above where it went in. The paper curls around the bottom of the internal roller and comes right back out on top. Therefore, the printed side started out on the bottom, then curled around the internal roller and came out with the printed side up.

Most front loading printers have the top of the printed page come out first; therefore, the same edge that went in first, got printed on first. With that in mind, if you ever want to print on the unprinted side of a piece of paper (that is already out of the printer), obviously keep the printed side up, but since the top of the printed side came out first, you need to make sure the top goes in first to come out first for the back side.

Your Canon 560 printer has duplex printing, so it is a good idea to run your test to see what happens when printed on a single side, and what happens if you use the duplex-mode. For duplex mode printing, after printing on one side, the printer pulls the paper back in to print the other side automatically. Think about how much space is inside the printer. Depending on how much data the printer can store, either the first page is printed, then the second page, or the second page is printed first, then the first page. It depends on how the printer wants the page to come out. You can run a simple test and see exactly what happens.

Since the printer cannot easily turn the paper around, it merely starts with the opposite end of the first printed side when it prints on the back. If the top of the page came out first for the first printed side, the printer prints the bottom lines of the second page of text working back to the top in reverse order. As a result, the bottom of the page comes out first, with the top coming out last.

Some duplex printers can store so much data that the determine how the second page will look, print it first, then print the first page. Watch to see what yours does.

Worse comes to worse, mark a sheet of paper in one corner, insert it into the printer, then print a document that contains only the period character and see where it is printed. By knowing how you put the paper in, and where the period was printed, you can tell how to handle any situation. By the way, the period character was chosen because it will be so small that most likely you can use that sheet again.

MY HP LASER JET 2420DN IS gHOSTING DOWN THE LEFT SIDE


The ghosting is most likely 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 or front 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 defect on the page the problem is most likely the toner cartridge but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.
Hope this helps

My HP printer 2420 leaves "ghost" prints on the pages.


This can be caused by one of two things.

1. faulty wiper blade on your toner so that the previous image in not being wiped off the drum.
2. worn fuser sleve.

To work out which it is you will need to do a half stop test: print off a normal document then when it is about half way through the printer ( unfortunatly you may have to repeat this to get the timing right) open the front cover. remove the toner cartridge. if you can see the ghosting on the page the it is the toner. if its not there then its a new fuser. to save on money and if your confident enouh you may be able to just chane the fuser sleve depending on the state of the fuser on a whole.

hope this helps

Magicolor 2300dl ghosting and smear - black only


if only black does that, then it can be black toner, but the best way to find out, print something and when printer starts to take paper open front door, remove waste toner box and take out pc drum and transfer belt and check the printed page from there, if it seems ok, print nex page and open door when page comes out from fusin unit, if quality goes bad before fusing unit, it may lead to 2'nd transfer roller / pc drum and transfer belt quality was ok / if after FU then you have a problem in fusing unit.
