Sounds like they touched the photosensitive drum. It needs to be cleaned with a cotton cloth. The drum is a lime-color cylinder and it is very fragile. Avoid touching with any object other than the cloth it or scratching it.

Good luck.

The ghost image of the print is printing on the paper with the orignal print ?


Ghosting is a condition where theimage prints properly, but a much lighter copy of the image also printselsewhere. This can be due to a problem with the power outlet that is supplyingpower to the printer. Check the power outlet by plugging in a different printerto see if the same results occur. Ghosting can also be caused when consumableprinter parts (such as the drum or imaging kit) are near the end of their life.All of the consumable parts in a printer are rated for a certain number ofpages. Once a printer gets near that magic number, you'll need to replace thoseparts to eliminate ghosting.
This will help. good luck.

Hp 5550 patchy print


Most of the cases fuser assembly or supplies are causes of ghost image. If image is not properly transferring on media causes transfer roller or ETB.
Do this small exercise: Give print command, wait till paper grabs, once paper entered in cartridge area, power it off, open top & front cover, remove paper and see the print quality.Observed any ghost image what you observed? No ghost image? then problem with fuser assembly..

1.Remove fuser assembly, check any toner particles deposited on surface of fuser transfer roller or heater roller.. if found clean carefully with good cotton cloth while fuser having certain temperature,pl avoid metal & sharp objects to clean..
2. Clean paper path roller(You can observe the rollers to push the paper to reach the destination)
I hope this exercise will resolves the issue..

Ghost images of the same printing repeated down the page


Run a half test. While printing a few pages, open the cover, pull out the toner and look down at the paper. If you see the ghost images replace the toner. If you don't see the ghost images, replace the fuser.

Xerox 5309 - ghost image on the second half of the print


Has to be a roller problem. First check that the drum is being cleaned properly by the drum blade, it is responsible for cleaning the leftover image of the copy/print before it ( when you remove or look at the drum you should not see an image or toner ,it should be clean , if not replace  drum and blade). Next check that the upper fuser roller is not damaged ( This is the rollers that heat up and fuse the image into the paper  ). If these check out it could be the erase array or laser unit ...Good Luck

Ghosting on my laser printer


You just need to run more print outs to clear the ghosting.

Print smudges and ghosts down the page


Usually ghosting is caused by the fusing unit, which usually means that it needs replaced to be honest. You could try getting into the fuser and giving the rollers a wipe, they may have dry toner on them which could also cause the fault. but i'd say the fuser could need changed!!!
Hope that helps  (",)

HP LaserJet 1012 Printer prints ghost images


I ran the hp toolbox "cleaning" mode too and it did not help the problem at all. I still have a dark smear concentrated in the middle of the page, and ghost images repeated lighter all the way down the page.

Colour printing gives ghost image


Are you using genuine Brother color cartridges? If you are, then try different paper (20 pound laser printer paper or plain paper copier paper rather than inkjet paper,) Also, do not use recycled paper. If that does not work, you may need a new imaging (OPC belt) unit, or a new fuser assembly. Check your owners manual about when to replace the imaging unit or fuser. It is usually after 60, 000 prints have been run.
