If the carbon smudges are dry and can be removed check the condition of the fuser it could be damaged or a build up of toner stopping it from fusing to paper.. you could also take the drum / dev units out and see if ther is a build up of toner in these units vac off or blow waste toner off..do not touch the drum surface though cause this will really ruin your day!!!good luck A

D. ?There are five (main) components to an (e-mail) message besides the message box itself: from, to, cc, bcc, and subject.


Yes.... that's right. but what is your question?

If you're asking about CC - that means carbon copy. It comes from the days of typewriters when a sheet of carbon paper was inserted between two pages inserted into in a typewriter.

The impact of the inked letters wrote on the top sheet, and the impact also caused the carbon paper to transfer the same text onto the second sheet of paper. Hence 'Carbon Copy'.

BCC means 'Blind Carbon Copy'.

If you send an email to somebody but include a second person as 'CC' the person who receives the CC is aware that the email was sent to somebody else as well.

if you add somebody as BCC - Blind Carbon Copy - that person receiving it is unaware the email was also sent to another recipient.

Copy is smearing from top to bottom on left side of paper about 1 inch wide.


The print in the smudged area, does it wipe off the page like not fused well to the paper. Do you also have a crinkling noise, if so the sleeve in the fixing assembly has torn. You may still have it under warranty with canon and can get it fixed for free.
Good luck

Dell all-in-one problem


Check if you are using refilled cartridges and have any leaks (may need a cleaning) or if the paper has been exposed to high humidity. You can test by running a few sheets through from a new **** of paper and seeing if the smudging goes away.

I purchased "tasty planet" from reflective entertainment inc but have not received my activation code. i have reaplied for it but still dont have it. keep being told item no:eabzrprdk46cvr3xej937...


That's great, but why are you asking anyone else than Paypal or Reflective Entertainment what the problem is?  If you want codez this isn't the site.  Patently, PayPal takes a long time to settle for merchants; doublecheck your browser history of the purchase to cc with PayPal as an issue if you still have no code (check y'r spam folder, etc.) and give Reflective a carbon copy, expecting them to make good.  I mean, especially send Reflective a copy of the PayPal screen with personal details redacted (smudged out.) And this ain't a PC Desktop problem, but I'd put it down under Software/Tasty Planet....

PC-65 (Canon copier)


A smudge across the copy can be in many different areas.
Some ideas.
The drum cleaner may be the problem as you indicate.
It may be a piece of paper ripped of dragging across the surface of the paper causing the smudge.
Also the fuser roll coating may be very worn and causing that.
One thing to try that can show you if the defect is on the drum cartridge, is start to run a copy, After the paper feeds and this is timing, shut the machine off when you think the paper should be about half way through the copy cycle, then see if the copy defect is on the unfused page, If it is smeared before it reaches the fuser, it is in the cleaning section, if it is not smudged, then it is most likely the fuser rollers are needing replaced.
First look for a paper fragment in the path, step 2 is to shut the machine down in mid copy and see if the defect is there.
The fuser is the hot area of the machine in the exit area, If you can take a flash light and look in there and see if you observe wear or heavy toner buildup on a roller then obviously thats the problem.
