SOURCE: Ink smudges on the right side of the paper

Hi,

Your problem is due to a worn fuser unit (upper fuser roller).

The teflon coating has worn again, alowing the toner to stick to the roller and then "repeat" about 3x down the paper (getting fainter each time).

You need to order a new fuser unit.

Make sure you order the currect voltage (US or UK)

It seems like your PCU's are dirty and are picking up extra toner. Take them out and look at the green rollers, any extra finger prints or dirt on them? Clean them with a clean paper towel.

Also, check your transfer unit below the PCU's, that may need cleaning or replacing. You can pull that out after removing both PCUs, turn the little screww and look at it. That can also be cleaned with a cleaning wipe or a damp paper towel. There's a little tab that you can turn to free the rollers (they'll still be a little tight) bu then you can turn the rollers to expose more surface area.

Good luck. Be sure to rate the post if it works for you.

How do I fix HP LaserJet P1606dn printing issue? it continues to print vertical line/ smudge on the far left of the printed document. Does anyone have any suggestion regarding this issue?


The smudges on the side of the paper is most likely a piece of something rubbing against the paper just after the printer puts the ink on the paper. Inspect as much as possible the path that paper takes. Look at rollers. Anything that grab the paper. Look for ink and dust build up. As for the vertical lines. Could be several things. I you haven't used you printer for awhile the ink in the nozzle could of dried up. Most new printers have a nozzle cleaning function. Try that it a couple of times. See if that helps. If it shows any sign of change after that, it dried up ink. It's a hassle to try to get the ink flowing again. I normally just to replace the cartridges. Let me know if this helps or not.

PRINTING IMAGES ON CD'S/DVD'S - SMUDGES / i865


After looking at a picture of the CD you were printing to, I see the problem. The printer is trying to print blue ink on the middle of the CD, where the hole is. The problem is, since there's a hole that ink is going through and getting onto the rollers in the printer. It's then transferring back to your media as it moves through the printer. It's C shaped because you're only printing on about half of the hole. There are two ways to fix this. Either put a round piece of tape over the hole to cover it (and thus the paper will be printed on), or change your image so it doesn't print to that part of the CD. I'd suggest the latter, as it will look neater when you're done.

My dcp165c printer print quality prints black & yellow colour. i clean print head through maintance 76 but problem cannot be solved


How is the printer printing black and yellow color? Is it a smudge?

When I print, the pages are smudged with ink. What should I do?
Description:
- If smudged stains appear at the top center of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not too thick or curled.
    Also, verify that the appropriate paper is being used and that the paper type set in the machine matches the media used.
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear at the right or left corner of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear on the reverse side or at the bottom of the page:
