Re: print on left side of paper

The printer needs servicing , either transfer roller or the laser scanning unit needs servicing to clean dust/humidity.

Why does the 2550n printer not printing fully in the left column

Is the print quality poor on left side for all colors? You may have one bad cartridge. Create a paint document with Yellow, Magenta and Cyan squares on the left side and see if one color prints better than the others. You can also gently shake the cartridges to redistribute toner.

I have a Samsung CLP-620ND color printer, only 1085 copies printed. After changing the 3 colored toner cartridges, my print out came out bad. Left side of paper around 3

Open the individual carts from the printer and visually observe the density of toner on the developer roller evenly. Some times the cleaning blade of ITB over come the problem.

Before this try to adjust altitude and cleaning on EPM or smart panel from PC.

I think i have a fuser error. When I print something the right side of the paper is very light in color. If I print multiple pages, it gets lighter by every page.

Put paper in the manual feed tray. Print. When the page gets half way into the printer, open the cover. Remove the toner. Look down at the paper. Is the right side lighter than the left? If yes, replace the toner cartridge. I don't believe that a fuser could cause your problem.

If the black toner cartridge (Q6000A) is not original, problem with the doctor blade, bad calibrated.

Use Original cartridges?

See This:

The amount of background toner shading becomes unacceptable.

1.The media might not meet HP specifications.
  • Use a different paper with a lighter basis weight.
2. Use a different paper with a lighter basis weight.
  • Check the MFP environment.
3.One or more print cartridges might below. If non-HP print cartridges are used, no messages appear on the control panel or in the HP ToolboxFX.
  • Replace any low print cartridges.

My printer is printing blurry on the right hand third of the page - the rest is crystal clear

The printer's head with the ink cartridges runs on a rail above the paper path. The paper comes out face down so the left side of the printer prints the right side of the page. The bottom of the print cartridge is either too close or too far away from the paper. So look for something that is lifting the paper up like some paper wrapped around the rollers or something that would move the head up or down like a loose rail - it would be on the left side of the printer. If it is not paper or some other foreign material on the rollers or stuffed behind them (open the rear cover plate too), the chances are that it will not be cost effective to service the printer.

Left side of page prints lighter than rest of page

You should contact Dell about returning these for a replacement, it sounds to me like a manufacturer's error.

Streaks on printed page full length even after installing new cartridge

Check the glass (the one the paper rests on). The underside of the glass that is. This is what the light 'sees', so, it will print this!

Left hand side prints faintly

inside the toner unit, there is a stirring device to broadcast toner over full width of drum. I will guess this is the culprit, the stirring device is not turning. Try this test: remove the toner cartridge and shake it rapidly back and forth. Then try a print, any change?
