2 things can cause this problem.Since I can not see the problem all I can do is tell both problems.If the image is black like toner in both places then you probably have a defective fusing assembly with coating worn off.It acts like a Teflon skillet with teflon worn off. The eggs stick to where the coating is missing.So with that said if coating is missing from fuser then toner sticks and comes off on the page on the next revolution.The other problem is with the drum/toner cartridge.The drum is not cleaning after the print is put on the page causing the image to repeat on the page.

SOURCE: Samsung 1710 stops before printing

Sounds like the printer is having trouble feeding the paper , it tries then fails to feed paper and goes into jam.

Locate rubber feed roller (usally grey or black about a inch wide should be , lower front above paper tray, whipe this rubber roller with a slightly damp cloth and try again

You could also verify if this is the problem by feeding paper via bypass instead of paper tray

Check to make sure error light is not indicating no toner and that is what is stopping printing

SOURCE: printing jammed on thicker paper

See the manual. It looks as if 120g/m2 is the heaviest paper it can use:
"Set Type to correspond to the paper loaded in the tray from
which you want to print. This will let you get the best quality
printout. If not, print quality may not be acheived as you want.
Thin: Less than 19 lb (70 g/m2) thin paper.
Thick: 24 lb to 32 lb (90~120 g/m2) thick paper.
Cotton: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) cotton paper such as Gilbert
25 % and Gilbert 100 %.
Plain Paper: Normal plain paper. Select this type if your printer is
monochrome and printing on the 16 lb (60 g/m2) cotton paper.
Recycled: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) recycled paper.
Color Paper: 20 lb to 24 lb (75~90 g/m2) color-backgrounded
paper."

SOURCE: Paper Jam

I have just SOLVED my CLP 300 printer paper jams by replacing the rubber band on the paper pick up roller. My old rubbber had worn flat and had dried out. I was lucky as Samsung had sent me one for an engineer to fit. However, being an engineer myself, I replaced it with instant success!

You could fix yours without replacing the band because all it needs is to be turned around to a non worn area. To get to it safely, unplug your printer from the mains supply and the USB cable. Remove the paper tray.

Open the front door and remove the imaging unit complete with toners. Now turn your Printer upside down and look for the rotating bar with a centre wheel and rubber band. The rubber band looks like it only goes half way around the wheel. This band is Clipped onto the wheel. With careful prising, you can unclip the rubber band. It's a bit tricky and tight but I have done it no probs. Perhaps being a techy myself has helped? Anyway, rotate the band around so that a fresh bit of rubber will be acting on the paper and refit. This is also tight and tricky, but can be done without dismantling the printer to replace the who bar.

The actual part that is unserviceable is the rubber on the Samsung MEA unit pick up roller. The part number is JC97-02647A

Now refit all the other stuff and test your printer. I have also got rid of the dreaded clicking too! But that's another story.

Hope this helps?

SOURCE: I am getting a ghost image of what I am printing

i would say ghost image is more likelly your imaging drum.

some printers have the imaging drum built into the cartridge some have it separate.

i would say try another cartridge

also don't trust remanufactured cartridges if you are concerned with print quality.

Hp 5550 patchy print


Most of the cases fuser assembly or supplies are causes of ghost image. If image is not properly transferring on media causes transfer roller or ETB.
Do this small exercise: Give print command, wait till paper grabs, once paper entered in cartridge area, power it off, open top & front cover, remove paper and see the print quality.Observed any ghost image what you observed? No ghost image? then problem with fuser assembly..

1.Remove fuser assembly, check any toner particles deposited on surface of fuser transfer roller or heater roller.. if found clean carefully with good cotton cloth while fuser having certain temperature,pl avoid metal & sharp objects to clean..
2. Clean paper path roller(You can observe the rollers to push the paper to reach the destination)
I hope this exercise will resolves the issue..

RICOH FW740 is printing with a ghost image. Can I clean it myself?


Ghost images appear on the printed page because of bad cleaning blade or improper charging of the drum unit. Ghost images appear on the next printed page if cleaning blade does not clean the drum surface. Drum/ photoconductor is very sensitive to light, so special care should taken while pulling it out.

I have Minolta 2300W Laser Printer and it folds the first page only about 3 to 4 inches down makes a nice one inch fold but take that out and print again...next page fine.....now printing with two wide...


The is blocked by dust on the side of the paper on the image unit that would have color associated with the print. Remove all the image units and clean all the laser glass. Replace those image units also if streaking as for the paper ensure correct paper side and media type.

    Poor print quality


    The "ghost" image is "burned" onto the drum.

    A laser printer is supposed to charge specific "dots" on the drum, and the toner-ink is supposed to stick only to those "dots", the paper is pressed against the drum, and then the "fuser" uses heat to "melt" the toner-ink onto the paper, to produce the printed page.

    You need to replace the drum.

    Text is "ghosting" when using card stock


    I sort of solved my ghosting problem by selecting print, set up, and then under media type selected thicker paper. This apparently pulls the card stock through at a slower rate which helped tremendously. One of my documents turned out perfect and the other "ghosted" just a little.

    Assuming that you are using the same paper and have not changed any of the consumables you should do the following:

    1. Clean LED head with lens cleaner or soft tissue.
    1. Remove the toner cartridge and give it a few shakes then reinstall it.
    2. The Toner Could be low so Change toner cartridge.
    4. Make sure that the paper is not damp as this will cause fading and poor quality printing and images.
    1. The image drum may have been light contaminated so remove it from the printer and store it in a totally dark place for several hours then reinstall it.
    2. If the image drum is dirty then wipe it very gently with soft tissues, being careful not to scratch it.
    3. Open the top cover and check to be sure that each toner cartridge is fully seated and that each toner cartridge lock lever is pushed all the way back.
    4. Press the top cover release latch and open, then close, the cover.
    5. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA TYPE and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
    6. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA WEIGHT and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
    7. Possibly set the value of media weight in the menu to the next heaviest one.
    8. Check PRINT MENURESOLUTION setting and set to 600 x 1200DPI
    9. Check PRINT MENUTONER SAVE MODE and make sure this is OFF
    10. Check PRINT MENU – MONO PRINT SPEED and make sure this is set to MIXED SPEED
    11. Check the COLOUR MENU – DENSITY CONTROL and set this to AUTO
    12. Check the COLOUR MENU – AUTO DENSITY and set this to EXECUTE
    13. Check the COLOUR MENUCMY 100% DENSITY is set to ENABLE if you want a glossier black finish.
