The HP 2550 does take a while to print. It calibrates through all the cartridges & then you'll see your print soon after. You probably need your printer professionally cleaned out with a toner vacuum, the squeaking could be coming from the drum or a pick up roller.

Printer leaving black smudges and streaks


Could be bad cartridge leaking. Drum is in the cartridge and if the drum wiper is not doing a clean wipe toner will drop onto paper. Take out cartridge and over a sheet of white paper tap the cartridge with you hand, if toner drops you have a leaking cartridge. Also could be fuser area, they get dirty and leave lines or the teflon coating wears through and leaves a line, depending how old this unit is.

MFC-9840 printing Yellow/Red/Blue strips in background. Any ideas why?


This is caused mainly by leaving the Corona Wire sliders anywhere other than where the arrows on the slider meets the arrows on the Drum Units. This leaves solid lines of colour down the length of the page (one per colour with the slider in the wrong place) if it is leaving more than the single line on the page it is probably leaking cartridges.

These particular cartridges are known for their ability to leak badly (OEM and Remanufactured cartridges do it). The only option for a leaking cartridge is to replace it and clean out the machine with a lint free cloth preferably a 'Toner Grabber' cloth. If you nee one of the toner grabber cloths then talk to your local cartridge refilling place for one. If they refil toner cartridges there then they probably have them or can suggest a different option.

Hl3040cn prints a black stripe down the page despite the drum being cleaned as advised by Brother.Peter


Hi

3 issues might be the problem.

1. The toner waste compartment is full. You need to clean the toner waste compartment located in the cartridge itself.

2. Roller drum inside the cartridge have lines normally starts on both ends of the drum. This due to bulky printing. Check and replace this parts inside the toner cartridge. Manual cleaning is not advisable because the result will still the same. If you have only toner cartridge, use the roller drum and replace in place of it.

3. Faulty Toner Cartridge that cause leaking the toner powder. If you purchase remanufactured toner cartridge or you refill the toner cartridge. It tends to worn out the parts. Normally starts as roller drum and follows with the other parts. Replace new original Toner Cartridge. When you refill the toner cartridge, you need to clean the waste compartment as well as it will later be full and overflow.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

Laserwriter 8500 prints splotches all over the page.


Toner bubbles are characterized by large blotches of color toner on
printed pages caused by color toner leaking from cartridges directly
onto the transfer drum.

Solve the problem of toner bubbles by checking the manufacturing
codes on the toner cartridges and replacing cartridges as needed. Compatible carts are notoroius for this so don't use them.

Heat-stamped on the toner cartridge, opposite the label-end of the
cartridge, is a manufacturing code. If a portion of the code does not
match the list below, replace the toner cartridge.

Use toner cartridges that contain any of the following manufacturing
codes:
 9I
 9J
 9K
 9L
 and any cartridge that begins with the numbers 0 through 6 in place of
the 9

Recently changed the black toner cartridge in the Dell 3110cn printer. This past week when I print the entire page is being printed with a shade of gray. I think the toner cartridge has leaked toner and...


This could be a drum problem, the drum is part of the toner cartridge in this printer.

If the toner has leaked it will be all over the inside of the printer - you'll see it. I don't think that's the problem.

If the toner cartridge is an original Dell item, then it's likely to be replacable under warranty.

If the cartridge is a remanufactured item, it may be that the wrong toner has been used. Toner is NOT all the same, and this cartridge is one whe the wrong toner really will not work properly for long.

The chances are the changing the toner cartidge will cure the problem, provided you use an original Dell item, or a remanufactured item from a reputable manufacturer.

Toner leaking ink on one side of paper pretty bad


There could just be a lot of toner inside the printer, but it could also be the drum unit (which also collects the waste toner) is so full that it is leaking.

This typically happens when the 'replace drum' indication is reset without actually replacing the drum.

If you have reset this without replacing the drum, and the print count is in excess of 30,000, you probably just need to replace the drm unit.

Ink spots on paper


If the spots are all one color, the toner cartridge of that color has a problem. Check the drum on that cartridge and make sure there are no bad spots on it. Your cartridge could be leaking toner.

HP color laser 2550L prints only in yellow


Hi Mmgrafde,

Press the Go and Rotate Carousel buttons simultaneously. This will calibrate the printer. See if this works.

Otherwise....Remove all cartridges and drum. Switch off printer. Close the lid. Switch on printer and wait until any churning stops. Insert the drum and close the lid. Wait until any churning stops. Put in one cartridge at a time, closing the lid and wait till it stops churning each time. With the last cartridge put in, it will churning longer (calibrating). Try to print from your computer.

It could also be that the toner could actually have run out for the other colors.

Still using color toner when printing in black


Check the black toner cartridge. Most printers that use multiple cartridges will use the black cartridge as long as it has toner in it but will then start using the color toner to do the black/grayscale when the black cartridge is empty.
