Print rubbing off the paper

The print rubs off the paper and a dark line is printing on the left side of the paper. I have changed cartridges, but it didn't help. Has the fuser stopped working or is it something else?

Yes, it is the fuser. The fuser is where the toner is heated so it sticks to the paper. The big clue is the print rubbing off.

Unfortunately, it is not easy to replace and will cost more than replacing the printer.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or if this has been helpful.

HP LaserJet 1020 Printer Black leaving a black line on the left side of paper. What is causing this


Lines down the page can be caused by a few different things. The most common are the toner cartridge having a defect, or the fuser being worn out. The quickest way to figure out which one is to do a "half print" test. You need to start a print job, then open the toner cover when about half the page has been printed. Check and see if the line is on the page. If it is, then the toner cartridge is to blame. If it isn't, then the fuser will be the problem. (not worth replacing the fuser on this unit)

Be careful of the toner on the page with this test...it will not be attached to the paper and will rub off easily.

Hope this was helpful

My black ink is not working please tell me how to clean it


Hi

To clean it, remove the ink cartridge and rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows. Then run the print nozzle for 2 time for further cleaning the print head. Then try to print again.

Another way is to soak the print head only into a how water for 5 minutes until ink loose up and ink flows, rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows. Run the print nozzle and then try to print again

Just replaced black cartridge and it's still not printing


Hi

I suggest to remove the cartridge and rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows. The print the print nozzle for 2 times. Then try to print again.

If not, dip it into a hot water for 5 minutes and then rub it again in a paper with rubbing alochol.

Run the print cleaning maintenance like print nozzle and then try to print again.

If not, you need to go to printing preferences and check the box GRAYSCALE in the print quality.

Please let me know if you need more help.

I am getting several black lines in scanned and copied documents of my DCP 7020 Thanks


Check the print document to see if the ink rub of easily,if so this mean the fuser cartridge need to be change.Turn off the printer and wait until it is cool before changing the fuser cartridge because the fuser get very hot when ever the printer is in use.









Open the fuser cartridge door. On most printers this door will be either on the left-hand side of the printer or in the back. Consult your owner's manual for the exact location. Flip down the clips that hold the cartridge in place, then grasp the handle and pull it out of the printer.
Push the new fuser cartridge in until it snaps into place, then flip the clips up to lock it in place. Close the fuser cover door.
Open the toner cartridge door and remove the toner cartridge. On most laser printers the toner cartridge is located either in the front of the printer or on the right-hand side.
Vacuum underneath the toner cartridge to remove all paper dust and toner residue. This debris has a tendency to build up and cause streaks and stains on the paper.
Wipe the interior of the printer with a soft cloth to remove any remaining debris that could cause problems with print quality. Continue cleaning the printer until all debris is removed.
Purchase a set of laser printer cleaning sheets, and load one or two in the paper tray. Print to those sheets of paper to clean the paper path. These sheets are slightly sticky, and they are designed to remove dirt and debris from the paper path.
You should also clean the print drum and the corona wires.

Printer doesn't print black


if the cartridge is not flowing...I would NOT soak it in water as that can flow back into the cartridge...remove it and use a q-tip with rubbing alcohol to clean...then you can use toilet paper to rub across it to make sure its flowing...you should get a solid black line...be sure not to touch where the electronics connect to it...if you do, clean it with the alcohol also

Ricoh aficio 1515f printing dark line down left side


If the print can be rubbed off then this suggests the fuser unit is not working correctly. It could be that the thermistor is covered with toner and making the machine think the fuser is hot enough when it's not.

The black line could also be caused by the fuser if one of the pick off fingers is coated with toner or has worn into the Teflon of the roller.

Does the machine show the lines when you print a page from memory - such as a counter or config page? If not, this would suggest the optical path is dirty. Try cleaning the glass and look at the mirrors inside the scanner to see if they are dirty/dusty.
