I have installed new cartridges the colour prints perfect but the black is blurred with lies through it. i also found a small t shaped rubber piece about about 4mm x 6mm in the paper tray could this be the...

this rubber piece can be actually locket from printer rollers, but, returning to your smudgy printing

1. remove cartridges from the printer
2. check if there is bit of paper stuck anywhere in paper path, if so, remove
3. check if rollers on paper path are clean
4. touch bottom of the cartridge with absorbent tissue to check if ink is flowing through, if yes then insert cartridges back and print test page.
5. if cartridge do not allow inkflow, check what solvent is used (water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit - this which do not cause precipitation is correct solvent), soak absorbent paper (tissue) with proper solvent and whipe head of the cartridge with it, 6. put drop of the solvent on golden knobs inside seats of the cartridges of the printer, allow it to soak in, wipe off with lint free tissue and put another drop of solvent in. allow soak in,
7. install cartridges back, print test page, it should start printing very weak and improving as it goes through the page (solvent will be printed first)
8. create "strip page" one line yellow, white space, one line cyan, white, magenta, white, black - print that page, this print will clean printheads and establish good inkflow.

all ink printers must print at least one page per week as to keep heads free of gum and ink in flow.

I have a canon image class d680. the machine no

Have you tried to clean the pick up rollers with a rag with a small amout of WD-40 or Simple Green. Clean the roller then whip off with a dry rag. If the problem improves you need to replace the pick up rollers. If not you may have to replace the paper feed clutch. Also, look to see if the seperation pad is ingaging when the paper tray is pushed in. Open the left side door. I've seen the actuator break. Also, have you tried to use the manual feed tray???? I know you made sure the paper guides in the paper tray are set correctly for the size paper in the tray??? Good Luck

I'm gonna assume you have a laser printer. You might need a cleaning since some toner might have spilled when you replace your toner. Toner gets into the rollers inside the printer that pulls the paper thru and creates smudgy black lines.

Check out your local business supply store like Staples for Laser Printer Cleaning paper. It doesn't work 100% of the time depend how dirty the inside of the printer is. Maybe a quick fix then buying a new printer. Getting toner mess out is a a messy job.

Smudgy Photo orints

Make sure you are printing on the correct side of the paper. Most photo paper is single-sided. If you print on the wrong side, the ink sits on the surface, pulls up into very small drops, and remains wet for quite a while. If you print on the correct side, the image should be dry to the touch within 15-30 seconds.

Canon Imageclass D320 supply rec. paper malfunction

My problem was that I was trying to print from a PDF file. I found out that the file was legal size and that the setting for the printer to "choose paper source by PDF size" was checked. I unchecked it so that it would print on letter size paper. Hope this helps
