SOURCE: Toner smears across envelopes when

This might be a cartridge issue. You should also ensure that you have the media type set to envelope as this slows the pirnter down and provides best print quality. If the toner cartridge is not an OEM it might me the issue as well as toner quality on remans varies dramatically.

Print smears on right edge of paper only


It is possible that the fuser film is damaged. The fuser film covers the heating element. Open the back panel, and examine the area where the paper exits. The grey film should cover the same area as the lower black roller. If not, you will either need to replace the fuser or obtain a replacement fuser film and install it. Is the printer noisier than it used to be? The fuser bushings on these printers are notorious for wearing out and causing the film to fail. If the bushings are worn then likely a replacement fuser will be the solution for you.

Printer hp 2055 fuser error 50.3


Re: hp laserjet 4100tn - 50.3 fuser error


A 50.3 error means that the temperature of the fuser got to high.
Just try switching it of for 20 minutes and try again.
If it happens during a large print job, this may help, if the error returns when powering up the machine, the fuser is faulty, but if so, that means it would have to be replaced.

If you are printing narrow media (A5, envelopes) etc. try printing them in small batches,, and allow the printer to cool of in between batches.

Hp laser jet P2035N has a crease down the center of the page as the paper exits it is actually slightly raised so the print is smearing


Check to make certain that the fuser unit is not damaged. Often a crease or dimple is caused by foreign material on the fuser roller or the fuser is damaged. If the fuser is damaged, look into replacing the device, it may be cheaper than repairing the fuser.

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.

Smeared output can result when you refeed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing parts, this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner or you can clean the rollers with rubbing alcohol.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

Finally, if this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; toner that is not heated properly will fall from the page and smear. If the thermostat is bad or the fuser not working properly, you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

Poor prints and paper jams


Sounds like you probably need a new fuser. Smearing is a good indicator of the fuser not getting the toner to fuse to the paper, also, if it is jamming a lot near where the paper enters the fuser, there is a good chance there is some damage on the fuser unit itself.

you need check
1) you may make sure the smear occur after the photo drum unit or after fuser unit, you can stop printing when the paper goes around between the drum unit and fuser unit,
2) clean or change fuser leaner if the random smear occur after the fuser unit(not after the drum unit).
3) still check new drum unit there is a cleaner on it, it could be the smear occured if not enough cleaned drum surface
hope you fix it

Print smear


It might be the fuser that is defect. perform a half paper path test. Let the paper get pulled in for half of it's length and open the cartridge door so printer stops, check the paper and see if issue is on the out print before passing the fuser. Also check that you have the power cord directly to wall socket and not using an extension cable that may reduce the current to the printer. Another tip can be to change paper type in the printing preferences to a heavier type ex. card stock wich have the printer to work slower.

Hp laserjet 2200d


If the toner smears after the page comes out of the printer you may need a new fuser. The fuser is the heating unit in the printer and can usually be seen from opening the back door. Check and see if it has a line worn down the same side as the mark on your pages.
