VersaJette m300c printer smudges

I have a VersaJette m300c printer.  Some of the letters on my document are smudging as they are printed (not after printing).  I have changed the ink cartridge and it is still happening.

Re: VersaJette m300c printer smudges

I am having the same challenge with the smudging. I get the wet the print cartridges but that doesn't work. I have to run some documents through which wastes the ink. I am totally disappointed with this printer. I tried Canon when they had that one as a special deal. I ran through 3 or 4 heads and Canon said not to use the MICR ink. Makes no sense to me. G7 won't respond to me anymore. I now have a Vista and it looks like that will be a challenge and I have an ink cartridge sitting in my closet for this dang thing. How disappointing is this.

My HP LaserJet 1300 printer smudges the entire document and the toner is very faint. The cartridge has toner in it.

It means your machine needs cleaning. You can purchase cleaning sheets from the office supply store, and insert it like a regular document, hit print, and the dirt comes off.

We have an hp Laser Jet 1300 printer. Approx 2" from left there is a smudge line from top of printed document to the bottom where the ink in the letters is scraped off and there is ink smudged onto...

First of u refill ur toner?? if so i advise u to get a new original one and refill refill the same toner for more than 3 times. Secondly, How old is ur printer and how many pages do u print weekly..or u be better off buying a new one...Finally, I think the problem is with the heated rubber rollers that are not melting the charged toner particles causing it to smudge. try cleaning the printer by removing any dust...i prefer that u try it out with a new toner and see if u have a same problem.

Printer is printing two smudge marks on my documents.

Two parts of the printer can affect this.
1) the toner cartridge
2) the fuser

Testing can be done to determine the problematic part.

Do a print using manual feed. Once the last bit of paper goes into the machine, open the printer door.
Remove the toner to check if smudge is there.
Replace toner cartridge if there is smudge, replace fuser it not.

Too much toner on paper which then smudges

Try reducing the print resolution using the menu buttons. Does it smudge with coloured prints? If so then the fuser unit is faulty. If it is only black that smudges it is likely to be the K Developer unit. Ensure that you are using genuine toners, not refills or third party as the quality of toner can cause similar results.

Poor quality smudge and ink blotting marks in the centre of any printed document

Try performing a test by printing a test page from Tray 1 and open the top cover as soon as the paper is 60% inside. The paper would jam below the toner cartridge before it reaches the fuser. Remove the toner cartridge carefully and verify if the smudges occur. This would eliminate the fuser. If the print quality is fine, then you need to swap the fuser.

Smudged checks with Versajette m300

Buy a cheap $100 Laserjet printer. I had the same problem w/ my Vesajette 300v8 and there was nothing I could to to fix the piece of s&@!. They wouldn't replace it, so I did. Checks can be printed on a std laser printer and accepted by the banks as they are read w/ optical scanners. MICR inks aren't mandatory, just a recomendation by the Federal Reserve to add a level of security to the checks. I have had no problems with my checks being accepted by the banks using the laser printer and standard toner ink. My checks are'nt in color anymore, but they do look awesome and look very crisp and professional. No more smudges, YAY!!

Your problem is Windows Vista in all likely hood. There being no driver upgrade available. Go to the Printer website[I have to say the printer make is not one I know]
