SOURCE: printer drum light on
Have you already replaced the drum? If you have not replaced the drum that may be why you are getting smudges. If you have already replaced the drum, here is the reset procedure. The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one. The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below: Open the front cover of the printer. Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until al the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button. Close the front cover. CautionReset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.Related Models HL-2030, HL-2030R, HL-2040, HL-2040R, HL-2070N, HL-2070NR http://www.tonerovernight.com

SOURCE: Black lines and smudges on paper
Laser printers work by creating latent images on a rotating, light-sensitive drum and then attracting toner to exposed points on that drum. If any point on the drum’s light-sensitive surface is damaged, you may notice that toner is always attracted to that point, thereby transferring to the final page and appearing as a repeating mark. Because the drum is a cylinder, such marks will appear at equal distances down the page, corresponding to each rotation of the drum (maybe every two inches, for example).
The only solution to this problem is to replace the drum. For most low-cost home printers, the drum is part of the toner assembly and is automatically replaced each time you install a new toner cartridge (which explains part of the cartridge’s high cost). More industrial-strength laser printers place the drum on a separate EP (electrophotographic) “engine” that can be replaced in just a few easy steps. Check your printer’s documentation and replace the appropriate assembly (or have someone do it for you), and the repeating marks should go away.

If you're still getting smudges, there must still be a label or part of a label either on one of the image drums or the transfer belt, i've found in the past it somethings gets stuck inside the unit on the cleaning blade. What i suggest is you run a print and open the front door at the paper travels along the transfer belt, look at all the image drums and see if you can see the smudge on one of them, if so the problem is caused by that cartridge if not it's in the transfer belt somewhere. You may need to try stopping the printer a few times and if the problem is in one of the cartridges, you will mst likely have to replace it, as with the transfer belt if you think that's causing the problem it's easier to remove it and rotate the belt manually.
Please note the image drums and the transfer belt are all light sensative

This may be the cartridge itself, take the black ink cartridge out and check the head on it (the part that points in to the printer, usually down) and see if it is dirty or has ink smudges on it.
