Replaced the drum on the 2300 W-now color is bad

Replaced the drum on the 2300 W and now cannot get colors to print properly. The installation seemed fairly simple yet our printing is really bad. All ink levels are fine but color prints extremely faded and not mixing well. Suggestions anyone?

Check your consumables. Press utility then check consumables. If anything is at the end of life, it needs replaced. It sounds like your drums are not cleaning properly and need to be changed. If they are fairly new, then I would suspect the transfer belt. If you know hoe to get into service mode you can go into test mode. Then run your halftones on each color. If it moves around, its your drums. If it stays in one spot, its your transfer belt. Also you could check your drum units. If they have streaks going across the green drum, like its dirty, then its coming from the drums.

Black print fading in & out . I replaced the black drum with a brand new one, but the problem still exists. I followed the instructon about rolling the drum before installing but its still the same....


If your printer prints like this:

The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer. I have a link to instructions that should help you http://www.fixya.com/support/r4120906-clean_developer_blades_samsung_clp_300 Hope this helps you.

Ink is smudged on envelope. How do I stop that from happening?


i bet you're printing in Black,
what happens is when black is selected, the 3 colored drums lift up 2 mm annd only the K drum is engaged, amd there is no static in the transfer belt under the CMY drums.
envelopes have air in them and can bounce along the bely after the black has printed, and seeing the toner is powder and not yet fused on, the toner touches the cyan drum as the envelope hits the fuser entry point as well as dragging on the Left transfer belt Blue lift handle(take out the belt and spring the handle off).
If you open the lid in this print mode, and lift out the cyan drum, turn it over and pull back the cover for the OPC drum, you will see the black toner on the green drum.
FIX 1. In the art work place a tiny dot of yellow. this will run the print mode in color and enagage all the drums. gaurantee your print will be fine, and know one ever sees that yellow dot.Problem is, this then runs down your CMY drums for black only printing.

FIX2.
If you have a later machine, downlaod iQueue from Xante.com (free) fantastic software. and get the machine updated with the latest X1.11 firmware from your dealer.
This allows with iQueue, to set the machine to print Black only, and you run the machine without the CMY drums installed....it works, it's great...

My Microboards PF2 does not print color properly.


The next to last cartridge I installed did not print properly. It seemed like all the colors were not there so I weighed it on a postage scale and it weighed less than another new one I had. I called Microboards. They said to send it to them and they replaced it. It may not be that, but weighing it should give some indication if it is.

We have recently bought a second hand OKI C5200 Colour Laser Printer and even though the black and white print seems to be great the clour is coming out with coloured streaks, what would you recommend?


One or more of the drums may be defective. Swap the black with another color and print a document. If that color printed the charectors ok, then continue the test with the other drums each taking a turn in the Black drum position until you find the bad drum.

make sure your cartridge is not stuck and pushed in all the way in printer. If it gets struck it will dump ink out and waste it.

Bad photo quality after changing drum


your laser printer
1) print color quality is now distorted that means print skew (technician called)
2) print tint means the print color not enough density,
3) print mottle means print dirty
you may try
1) print distorted--- find out the skew adjustment from your printer manu, it is adjust the image before transfer to the drum.
2) print skew could be happened when the drum replace install not very accurate, so install it more carefully.
3) print tint---you may increase print density from the manu, not fix,
4) print tint---the toner caridge near life cycle or using the less compatible toner. so you have change the quality toner or cartridge (if near life cycle) to improve quality photo print
5)print mottle---toner quality ? or cartridge near life cycle also cause print dirty paper,

When you print stop the printer half way through then check the image on the opc drum and transfer belt to see if it's complete or not, also you may want to check the aidc sensor (sometimes the cable comes loose).
