Replace the toner cartridge; this happens periodically, especially with refurbished cartridges. Parts of the cartridge can go bad even though the cartridge itself still has ink in it.

Drum kits marking up and streaking the paper


You can check with Dell to see if there is a maintenance kit for this printer. I know that there is one for the HP counterpart. You will probably need to replace the fuser, and maybe the pickups and rollers, but as I said I am not sure if Dell has a maintenance kit for these machines.

Black ink marks on prints from Epson R380!


Hello:

I have been having this problem all day today and believe I resolved it. The photo paper is thicker (I'm using the Ultra Premium Photo Paper by Epson). I have an Epson 1280 photo printer. I opened the lid and moved the lever to adjust for paper thickness, and voila––no more black ink tracks down the one side. Since photo paper is thicker, this may be your problem as well. Check your manual and see if there's an adjustment for things such as printing envelopes and change the setting. Hope this works for you! I wasted about 6 sheets of paper until I thought to adjust for paper thickness. Please let me know!

Prints roller smear marks


Laser printers do not use Ink. The problem is most likely a defect on the drum, which in this model printer, is part of the toner cartridge. Replace the black toner cartridge with a known good one and test.

Printer leaves black spots on paper


The black spots mean you either need a new imaging drum, transfer kit or fuser. You'll have to print some stuff and try to catch where the black marks are appearing. Try this method (it's called a Half-self test)

Load 2 -3 sheets of letter paper in tray one (manual feed) and remove paper from the rest of the trays.
From the information menu, request a demo page
The MOMENT the tail end of the paper disappears into the printer, open the right door. Open the front doors and release the levers for the imaging drum and the transfer drum. Carefully remove both pieces and examine your paper.



You should find the paper partway on the transfer belt but not in the fuser. If you see black marks here, start with the imaging drum. Open the shutter that covers the sea green shiny roller and look for marks on the drum (you'll see build up on the edges, that's normal, you should not see any scratches, pockmarks or toner on the center of the drum). If it looks clear, take a look at the transfer drum for marks or cuts on it's surface. (note: the transfer drum can be cleaned off with a dry lint free cloth, do not touch the shiny sea green roller of the image drum)

If everything looks good there, then likely the black marks are coming from the fuser. Let the printer sit, turned off for about half an hour to allow the fuser to cool. You can then remove the fuser and look at the rollers to see if there is any build up or damage there.

If you are not seeing any obvious issues with any of these parts, then start with the imaging drum. If you know that any of these parts have never been changed, then change them as they do have a limit to how many pages and how much time they can be used for.
