SOURCE: My printer prints blurry lines!
Try this: make a copy and stop it when it reaches the cartridge ( has to have image on paper) take out paper and look at it, does it have blurry copies? if yes, then the problem is with the cartidge or (worse) the laser printing device ( expensive).
Take a chance and replace the cartridge. if still there you need to replace the laser unit.
If it does not have blurry copies when you stop it at the drum then check the fuser unit( doubt it ) to see it it has any writing or toner on it.

I recently had this problem - tested fuser and all sensors.
The fix is to reset the memory.
To do this, enter the Maintenance mode. Menu, * 2864
(enter the number quickly)
then type 01 ( zero one ), this will reset all memory including the user settings.
Finally type 99 to exit Maintenance mode.
The printer will restart and the error will be gone. Test out with copy and printer reports
Hoping this fixes your problem

I had a similar problem. I discovered that the imaging drum was too hot. There is a temperature sensor that rides on the drum surface to monitor the temperature. You can see it if you lift the exit cover on the right side. The sensor is white, and has a thin probe which rides on the drum surface. There's a single screw accessible from the right side which holds it in place. A hole on that side will allow a screwdriver (torx) to access the screw and the little unit can be removed (be patient- it can be done!). Clean the probe with some alcohol and replace it. The problem is caused when the ink on the drum smears because it's too hot. Dirt (wax and oil)under the sensor probe prevents contact with the drum, and makes the printer think the drum is too cold.
