I have a different model but on mine if you go to
Start
Control Panel
Printers & Faxes
Click on Your Printer Name
Click on Printer
Click on Properties
Click on Maintenance
there is a menu in there that will allow you to perform various cleaning functions. One of them is removing smudges.
Also, if you have your printer set for the wrong type of paper in your word processor, and you are printing say, on double-sided glossy and it's set for normal, you will not only NOT get the quality you want but the ink won't have enough time to dry before doing the other side and will cause a lot of smudge problems.
There are other solutions depending on whether or not you attempted to refill your cartridge.

4 - black ink smudges (1/32" wide x 1/16" high) in right margin


Very nice trouble shooting. The image defect you describe point to the OPC or drum unit this is essentially the toner cart. In your case black. Measureing the distance between repetitive defects is a sure way of diagnosing problems such as yours. Again nice work.

Google repetitive defect ruler for your model to help in the future.

Hope this helps

Hi, like every ink jet printer, there should be an ink pad(spunch) at the bottom of the printer to collect the waste. That spunch might be full of ink. You could locate it, remove and try to clean it under the water. See if it works

Ink will not dry


Without having to apply a varnish, the best way is to use frog juice which is a spray which come as both matt or gloss and gives the same eefects as a varnish but isnt noticable with the matt. This reduces the solid black areas from smudging.
