Question about Printers & Copiers
Lines and smears keep appearing on each copy. I replaced the cartridge toner, but they are still there. I even cleaned the roller on the cartridge holder. Looks very unprofessional
Sounds like a fuser assembly to me....not dirty, but worn out. If the teflon roller gets scratched or starts to disintegrate you will get lines, black marks on the page and even horizontal globs of toner. When it really gets bad, you will get paper jams. When you pull the paper jam out of the printer and it has toner on the paper, but it smears....means a bad fuser assembly.

There is no model number or brand mentioned, but it may need a new drum kit. Also, sometimes the fuzer module is dirty.
