If it does not help to clean the rolls and use a new toner cartridge, then you may use the wrong printer driver. Ensure that you have the latest version installed.

I know you said you calibrated the printer. Did you go to the printer menu and print test page, and the print an alignment page. The alignment page will then ask you to input the best aligned images. Other than this, the printer heade may be straying. The guide bar that the head slides on may be bent or twisted. It can get twisted if someone pulls hard on a jammed paper. You may have to get a new guide bar.Please give me a positive vote if I have been at all helpful. Please let me know how it turns out. I am curious to know. Take care and good luck.

Hi,

The Calibrate Margins Menu allows you to adjust the printer's imaging area relative to the edges of the paper. Theimaging area is shown as a dashed rectangle; the printer will not print outside this rectangle.

Step 1. Adjust Side 1 Margins. To move the dashed rectangle to the position you want it on the page:

1. From the printer's front panel Support Menu, scroll to Improve Print Quality? and press OK.

2. Scroll to Calibrate Margins Menu and press OK. Select Print Calibrate Margins Page and press OK to print this page.

3. To move the dashed rectangle you see on the page printed to the position you want, use the front panel menu items Adjust Side 1 "A" Margin and Adjust Side 1 "B" Margin as illustrated below.

4. Reprint this page to verify the adjustment.You can adjust the settings from -40 to +40 units. The thickness of the rectangle's dashed lines is 1 unit. 6 units move the rectangle 1 mm. The maximum distance the rectangle can be moved (-40 to +40) is 6.7 mm.

I have a phaser 6200dp It starts to miss align on - 061bf13.jpg

Step 2. If the printer has the duplex option, adjust Side 2 Margins

1.
With Side 1 facing you, hold the print up to a strong light. Note the shadow of the solid lines printed on Side 2.

2. Use the front panel menu items Adjust Side 2 "A" Margin and Adjust Side 2 "B" Margin to move the Side 2 solid lines until they align with the Side 1 rectangle. Reprint to verify your adjustment

Some of these units have rollers made of rubber. Depending on how old your printer is, some of those rollers may have developed very smooth surfaces. The end result of that is the rollers no longer grip the paper as solid as they should. You then end up with a skewed paper trail. There are a number of conditioning liquids that are used to "rough" up the rubber rollers to restore their proper grip. If the path in question have rubber rollers, visit your local electronics store and purchase some of the liquid. If this fails to resolve the issue, you may have some issues with the timing of the rollers that move the paper. Depending on your experience you might want to test it or have your local repair center do so. Hopefully this will assist you in resolving your issue.

    When you cleaned the rollers did they look or feel that they were really smooth? It might be worth treating them with the liquid I had mentioned in the earlier post. The last time I bought some of the liquid it was under $10.00. I would never advise replacing any of the rollers unless they were actually damaged in some way. I know exactly what you mean when you speak of expense.

Hello,

The solution you tried by changing is a very step taken but if that has not helped you then the issue is with the roller unit installed in the system. Try to clean the roller unit. It must either be misaligned or worn out. In the first case it can be readjusted but in the latter case it would be preferable to replace the roller unit.

Kindly comment.

    Follow the solution below, sometimes its a simple matter of removing the trays and checking for paper in the way that may have fallen down behind the trays, also the rollers maybe loose or dirty or old, a good way to clean them is with a slightly damp cloth or some sticky tape, (this gives them some grip).

You need to re-align your printer, please follow these steps:
XP/2000: Go to start > control panel > printers > right click your printer and choose properties, go to maintenance and choose "Print head alignment" follow the steps on the printed page and you will be fine.

In case the steps are unclear, you will have to put your printed page under the scanner and press the scan button.
Good luck.

Your print head wiper blade is not moving properly.

The clutch that moves the wiper may be failing.
That blade is located between the drum and print head.

Printhead Wiper Alignment: Rotate the left and right idler gears until the Wiper is all the way to the bottom and the gears cannot be rotated further. Rotating the left and right gears together ensures that the wiper stays parallel and does not pop out of the belts. Now rotate the left idler gear a couple of teeth to raise the left side of the wiper to the top. Make sure that the left side of the wiper is a bit higher than the right side. Might have to try this procedure a couple of times, a couple of teeth at a time, to properly align the wiper.

Repeating defects appearing on every 3rd page


That most likely is on the transfer belt assembly, You can look at that belt and see if the defect is a mark that may be cleanable or actual damage to the transfer belt, which would require replacing the transfer belt.
