Samsung ML-2510 print problem

My printouts are faint and have thin lines running throughout. Is this from a bad toner cartridge? The user manual recommended cleaning the long strip of glass which is almost impossible to find. Any suggestions?

How do I stop stray lines from printing?

If the lines only show up when you scan or copy then your scanning platen is dirty (the glass plate) If printing from a computer also has lines then its either a dirty or scratched drum in the toner cartridge or a bad fuser. If you have a spare toner swap it to see if it resolves the problem. If it doesn't then its probably the fuser.

I have dark streaks with all print-outs on a Samsung ML-2510. It goes away on a new cartridge.

This is a common problem with a close-to-empty cart.

A new cartridge will have even toner, and will distribute it evenly to the page.

An older toner will start to streak and line onto the page.

Another issue could be the fuser... some of the new printers have a fuser built into the cart unit... so that when you replace the cartridge it replaces the fuser as well.

A fuser can become dirty and thus not distribute toner evenly across the page.

The printer is printing dark vertical line on the

90% or more of the time on this printer dark lines are coming from your toner/drum cartridge. You can verify this by changing cartridges if you have a spare. If you don't then remove the cartridge and look at the colored cylinder in the cartridge and see if the same "lines" are on the cylinder that are on your prints. This will tell you for sure that the cartridge is bad.

I have a ML-2510, I turned it on and both the red light and green light flash constantly. Will not feed or print.

The green light blinking means that it is accepting or printing data.
But, the red light is for the error messages. This blinking means there is a toner problem. 1. remove toner cartridge from printer and gently shake to redistribute any that is left, or
2. You simply have to replace the toner cartridge with a new one - this one has been exhausted.

Black streaks on paper on samsung ml 2150 laser printer

Could you describe these marks for us please.

Are they small specks or blotches? Bad Toner Cartridge

Are they lines:
Horizontal - Transfer Roller or Charge Roller
Vertical - Bad Toner OR Bad Fuser.

Note: A bad toner cartridge can render all of the parts listed here useless. Check for build up or lines on the cartridge reflective drum. Avoid light, as with film.

If they are a mix of both, the device needs to be cleaned with a can of compressed air. You must remove the cartridge, paper tray(s, and fuser to create clear path.

Faint vertical lines on Samsung ML-2010

Was the toner remanufactured/ compatible?
Sounds to me like the doctor blade in the cartridge is 'gummed' up and not allowing the toner to flow evenly across the Developer roller......try another cartridge

Samsung printer ML 2510 series

Maybe the toner is low... According to the manual, a blinking red light:

• A minor error is occurring and
the printer is waiting for the error
to be cleared. When the problem
is cleared, the printer resumes
• The toner cartridge is low. Order
a new toner cartridge. You can
temporarily improve print quality
by redistributing the toner. See
page 8.3.
• The toner is totally exhausted.
Remove the old toner cartridge
and install a new one. See page
• The toner cartridge reached the
end of its life.
