Run the "cleaning" cycle is the first thing that you should trying.
The Fixing Film Assembly is worn-out. it is a frequent problem.

Fix this with a new FUSER Assembly for HP Colour Laserjet 2600/n (200/240v) Part Number: RM1-1821-240CN or Fusing Assembly – RM1-1820(110/120v

Does this happen only when you print? Or does this happen when your are scanning and photo copying something? I would suggest going into the printer properties and selecting a higher dpi. Sometimes this fixes the "ghost images" from appearing on the pages. Click Print - Properties - and there should be a tab in there in which you can select a higher dpi setting. Try this. It should work.

I have Minolta 2300W Laser Printer and it folds the first page only about 3 to 4 inches down makes a nice one inch fold but take that out and print again...next page fine.....now printing with two wide...


The is blocked by dust on the side of the paper on the image unit that would have color associated with the print. Remove all the image units and clean all the laser glass. Replace those image units also if streaking as for the paper ensure correct paper side and media type.

Ghost printing


Hello,

You have a worn image drum. The drum is the part of the printer that the print image is created on before it transfers the toner to the paper. This part is coated with a very thin layer of Teflon so the toner does not stick. When it gets worn the toner starts to stick and that produces the shadow or ghost image approximately 3 inches down the page because the diameter of the drum roller is 3 inches. You will need to get the part DR-350, Office Depot has them as well as many places on the internet.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

The black print jobs have a shadow about 3 inches down the page


I had replaced the fuser - no improvement. I removed the fuser, imaging unit & transfer roller. CAREFULLY using a vacuum cleaner I cleaned all units and the internals of the printer, rotating the roller on the imaging unit to clean all parts. (Warning Place Imaging unit on paper as toner escapes) After a few test prints the page cleared and duplicate ghosting cleared.

My 2300W prints a second image


Yes, it sounds like a fuser problem, as the oil and coating wear off of the fuser rollers they transfer to the page as you describe. The only way to tell is to stop the machine in a print cycle before the fuser to determine if the problem is before or after the fuser.

HP 3015 laser printer with ghost image


A fuser image should only be about 1 1/2 inches away, 3 inches sounds like a drum problem.

Ghost image on Epson Acculaser C4000


Ghosting can be caused by several components: 2nd BTR transfer roller, Photoconductor Unit (PCU) or the Fuser unit. The most likely is the PCU contacts being dirty, caused by toner getting between them. Open the front of the printer (cover B) and lift out the photoconductor. Clean all of the metal contacts down the sides of the PCU with a cloth and wipe out any loose toner from inside the printer and give the contacts inside the printer on the R/H side a good clean. Replace the PCU and close the front cover.
Hopefully all will now be well, if not open cover A and clean the transfer roller on the inside of the cover. If problem persists you will need to get a Tech out to look further as without seeing the printer it is pretty hard to diagnose.
Good luck.

Hey Robert,
Sounds like it could be in need of a maintenece kit. The ghostinf is usually caused from the fuser or transfer roller. And that would also apply to the band down the page.

HP LaserJet 2100tn prints ok but with 3 lines of strange characters over image


Is your transfer roller clean?
How does the drum look on the toner cart?
Is the fuser getting bad?

Would you consider this an old image that is ghosting?

HP 2600 ghosting


It is a massive pain but a solution that worked for me is to run a 'clean' after every card stock sheet. I know it's wicked awful but it actually worked and I had to run 100 times (one for each good color card stock)
First put plain paper in tray 2
Next
Hit left arrow until you get to 'system service' and press green check
Next
then go to 'clean' and press check
Now it should print a clean image without ghosting
