Changing drawers wont solve a problem like that. You have to clean the printing heads, and all the area around the printing head. It's best to let a proffesional do the job.

LSU means "Laser Scanner Unit". That is the part that actually "prints" the image on the drum before it goes to the paper. If the toner (not ink) cartridge is in good condition, then you need an Authorized Service Center to replace the LSU assembly.

Hi Are you using OEM or rebuilt toners? If your using OEM and your able to smear the ink with your finger more than likely you have a fuser problem?. If your using rebuilt cartridges it could be the cartridge. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: black smear of ink at end of lines

Please load the printer with at least 10 sheets of plain paper then press the start button. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains, streaks or smudges are still present, the printer may need service.

SOURCE: smeared lines

Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

Vertical Ink smudge or smear


The problem is with the printer head which is normal in Laser Printers. Try cleaning the printer head with a cotton cloth and it'll resolve the problem a very large extent.

HP laserjet 5000gn when i print, output smears ink on 2 sides. not a toner issue cause changed toners already. someone says printer is telling me something and might be a warning of


If by smearing you mean the print is also rubbing off? Then you definately have a fuser unit issue. The fusing unit is the assembly that heats up and "fuses" the toner onto the page. When these start to go bad, usually on one edge or the other the print will smear/double image/wipe off of the effected area. One test you can do to verify a fuser problem is to print a page and then when the page is about half way thru the prcess, shut the printer off. Open the top and remove the toner cartridge, pull out the page and see if the lower part is not smeared. Basically what your checking is to see if the print is ok BEFORE it goes thru the fuser. Based on your description I would suspect your fuser is going bad.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

How do I clean the printer nozzles as it leaves streekes on printed pictures?


If the ink is smearing, it probably is not getting enough drying time. The ink drying time is a period of time inserted between pages to reduce the chance that a page will smear the one below it in the output tray. This time is factored into the time between when the first page finishes and when the next page finishes. Printing will pause temporarily if more time is needed. The time it takes for ink to dry varies greatly depending on paper type, printer driver settings, humidity, and temperature. In addition, the paper and print settings may affect the speed at which the ink can dry:
  • Transparencies require much longer drying times than other paper types.
  • Some store-branded photo papers do not allow ink to dry correctly because of the coatings used in their manufacture.
  • Printing in Best mode can increase the dry time.
Resolving the problem If the ink smears, increase the drying time. To increase the drying time in Windows, follow the steps below:
  1. When ready to print, click File , click Print .
  2. Depending on your driver version, click Properties , Settings , or Preferences and follow the steps below depending on the option.
    • For Properties or Settings , follow the steps below:
      1. Click the Advanced tab.
      2. In the Extra Dry Time section, move the slider toward More .
    • For Preferences , follow the steps below:
      1. Click the Basics tab.
      2. From the Basics tab, click Advanced Features .
      3. In the Extra Dry Time section, move the slider toward More .
  3. Try a sample print and see if the drying time needs to be increased more.
To increase the drying time for a Macintosh computer, follow the steps below:
  1. From the File/Print Menu , select Ink under the General tab.
  2. In the Dry Time section, move the slider toward More .
  3. Try a sample print and see if the drying time needs to be increased more.
Other steps that will reduce ink smearing If the ink still smears when printing, try some of the following suggestions:
  • Decrease the amount of time it takes for the ink to dry by decreasing the print quality to Normal or Fast mode.
  • Try printing on a different type of paper or on paper from another manufacturer. Paper formulas are different between manufacturers and may have a coating that causes the ink to be absorbed at different rates.
  • When printing large graphics or photos on plain paper in Best or Normal modes, improve the results by using heavier paper. Paper that is rated at 90 g/m2 (24 lb.) or higher will not curl or smear as easily as paper of a lighter weight.

Epson Stylus C86 smearing


Your printer has ink build up inside it. This comes from cleaning cartridges and builds-up steadily over time. Remove top cover. Wet a cotton swab with isopropyl alcohol (available at drug stores) and clean the inside. use a cotton bud where the swab gets entangled.
