First check the rollers of the fuser assembly and drum are free of any greasy spots as if somebody touched them with dirty hands. if they are clean, you may have dirt on the lenses inside of the laser imaging compartment and to clean you must be careful not to scratch them or move them out of alignment. moving the lenses invites a totally different trouble, and plus they are plastic for some reason maybe it is economical that way use a micro fiber cloth only.

SOURCE: The Lexmark c530dn prints fine. Smudging down both sides.

Hello,

Your problem is caused by 2 worn photoconductor units. If you open the front door like you are changing toner, the photoconductor units will be mounted to the door that swings down. You will see should see four units one for each color, red, blue, yellow and black. If you look at the red and black units the ends will look different than the blue and yellow. The photo units have teflon coating that wears off and causes your proble. The replacement part number is C53030x and you will need 2 of them. Just replace the red and black ones and your printer will be back to normal. If you can't locate them locally, let me know and we can ship them to you.

The problem could be caused by the photoconductor units. Try to swap the affected photoconductor units (like swap the magenta with black and cyan with yellow). If problem still occurs, then the photoconductors need replacement. I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for assistance. Thanks

Dell 2135 fading left side when printing


It's possible that this could also be down to a toner cartridge inside the printer. I would recommend running off a copy of the colour laser test page found here.

The colour bars towards the bottom of the page separate cyan, magenta, yellow and black. Hopefully you will be able to notice that one colour is affected more than the others and replacing that colour may help.

Apologies if you have tried anything similar previously.

After changing the toner cartridge of an HP3600 the printer calibrated but then has started printing in a Sepia type colour and not giving a true colours


Any chance you just changed the magenta cartridge? Your problem sounds like a defective cartridge, which happens often if you are using a refilled or remanufactured unit. From the front control panel you can go to troubleshooting menu and then pq troubleshooting to print a set of pages that consists of"

1 page of each color cartridge
1 white page
1 configurationpage
1 page that tells you how to use the pq troubleshooting pages

If the sepia problem is accross all of these pages then if most likley is the magenta cartridge that is bad. If it is only one page that is bad the color that is bad will be the bad cartridge.

My Ricoh Aficio SP C811DN-DL Printer smudges bottom of the page each time I print. It's a 3cm wide stripe of colourful smudges running across the bottom of page.


Transfer belt cleaning unit. The transfer unit is above the drums and the cleaner is on the left side. Remove it and I would bet you see a similar band as what your seeing on your prints. You can try wiping of the cleaning blade in the unit or you may have to replace it.

Epson c88 how print in magenta


Do you mean "how do I print text in Magenta instead of black". Well, you change the colour of the text from black to magenta. For example in Word, you would select (highlight) all the text, click on Format, then Font. Then click on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, then click on Magenta. To check you have the right colour, click again on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, and select More Colors. Then click on Custom. Magenta has a Red-Green-Blue value of 255-0-255. Now print the document and it will come out with magenta text.

If this is not what you want, please come back with a new comment explaining further.

If this advice has been helpful, please rate it.

Print out is dirty, there are smudges of inks at the page center


What colour are the smudges, if they are one colour you can try changing that colour toner cartridges. Failing this then it sounds as if you may need a new drum

How Brave is Jan?

Doubt it be the fuser(100 000life), "just magenta dots".... fuser would be "all smudged" or "black marks" , "the print rubs off" , "paper is creasing or jamming"

Can prove it by stopping a print (open door) when paper is1/2 way threw machine, you need to stop it before it goes threw the hot bit, so you can tell if the hot bit (fuser) puts the marks on the paper.

Transfer roller one would expect to effect whole print Smudged/Faint,uneven density

It will be the imaging unit ( 30 000 pagelife Ouch$ ) or possible leaking toner (if aftermarket)

Remove imaging unit and inspect film you should find image of lines, dots are usually chips or sticky stuff on drum surface, carefull no oily human fingers on surface please.

When stopping machine mid print and perfecting your timing, pull out the imaging unit and look at replica of your print notice if marked and where.

Hope this helps

Wrong colour


This could one of a few fairly major problems. The easiest way to track down the fault is start by replacing the consumables - make sure you install them in the correct positions - it is possible on the C1100 to put them in the wrong places!! Change the toners first. Most importantly the magenta and yellow. Print several pages. Use MS Paint or similar to create a page with all four component colours on (cyan, magenta, yellow and black)in large blocks (see image below) and print them full page. Now look at the print and see if any one colour is missing or has reduced density. If you have a spare PCU you should but that in next. Let me know what the print outs look like and we will progress to the next step.
