Toner blob in upper left corner occasionally

When I print, there is a blob of toner that appears in the upper left corner of some pages. It is not necessarily consecutive pages. The example I have is p1 blob, p2 clear, p3 blob, p4-6 clear, p7 blob, p8 clear, p9 blob. Any suggestions as to what to change, clean, correct, etc?

SOURCE: random blobs of toner on printed pages

try removing your drum unit and using the blue tab on unit, clean the corona wire by sliding back and forth several times. make sure you put tab back on same side it was on. this will work if it is putting what i refer to as "zebra" stripes on page.

good luck,

Toner blobs on upper left of paper


Are the supplies you are using OEM ( original equipment manufactured ).... or is it remanufactured? I've had issues with some of the remanufactured products ( or rebuilt ). I would also take the toner out and inspect the paper path for toner and clean it out with a 3m vaccuume and a lint free wipe.
Other than that it might need a new fuser.

My printer -X1185 prints the page with a 3 inch blank area on the left side and some of the right side printing is off the page. This is typical in my e mail page, and even if I center the letter on...


Web site designers create Web pages for display on a monitor, not for users to print on 8.5- x 11-inch pieces of paper. This becomes obvious the first time you try to print a Web page. Content you need may get chopped off by the right printer margin, whereas content you don’t need, such as the site’s copyright information, will print on its own sheet of paper. Fortunately, you can avoid such problems with a little foresight.

Before printing any Web page, open Internet Explorer’s File menu and select Print Preview. The current Web page will appear on-screen exactly as it will print on paper. Scan the preview carefully. If it appears that some content is chopped off by the right margin, click the Page Setup button located directly to the right of the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. In the resulting Page Setup dialog box, adjust the left and right margins so that each is set to 0.25 inches. The extra inch of space you gain by resetting the margins should provide just enough room to accommodate all of the content on most sites. Click OK to save the changes and return to the Print Preview window.

Next, scan the preview to determine which pages contain the content you want to print. Take note of those pages and click the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. Locate the Print Range heading and select the Pages option. Type the number of the first page you want to print in the From field and type the number of the last page you want to print in the To field. For instance, if you want to print just the first three pages of a Web page’s content, type 1 in the From field and type 3 in the To field. If your browser doesn’t have To and From fields, type the range of pages (such as 1-3) in the corresponding field. Make sure your printer has paper and click Print.

Good day, i have a 4730mfp. it does not print colour correctly, the print out appears faded like the printer is out of toner, even after all toners are changed.


First thing to try is this, please go to control panel on the printer and to aministration menu. Scroll down to troubleshooting and find the PQ troubleshooting option and press ok. This will print a series of test prints. If these prints look OK then likely you have an issue with your driver. If they are faded, the second thing you need to do is check to make sure that your firmware revision is current. On the config page that prints with the pages just printed above, look on the upper left for firmware revision. Current version is 46.300.0. Download from here and install following the instruction in the readme file. Did it print OK before changing cartridges? If you installed remanufactured or 3rd party cartridges, the toner will not always provide the same quality of print.

The following can cause bands (vertical on a normal page)


Faulty Toner cartridge
Faulty Drum Unit
Faulty Transfer Belt
Contaminated Fuser

I've also seen this sort of thing caused by a crusty build-up of toner on a wiiper blade on the Transfer Belt, and or Drum.

My laser color 9420


Sometimes when toner starts to get low prints will faed or not print on sides. Make sure the printer is on a very level surface. Remove the toners and shake lightly left to right and reinstall.
