Toner smears on all print outs. Looking for what part to replace.


Do you mean when the print comes out the toner smears on the paper when you touch it? If so, then it's the fuser that isn't working properly.
However, if you mean when the print comes out there is smeared toner in various places on your print, but the smears are fixed to the paper, then the cause is more complicated and could be caused by a number of different problems within the printer.

The document printed from samsung scx 4200 printer has smudges and dots.


When you say smudges, can you wipe the toner from the page with your fingers; or is it just smearing when it prints; but, the toner is affixed to the paper?

1) If you can smear it with your fingers; replace the fuser. It's not heating the toner properly
2) If it is smearing, but sticking; replace the DRUM.

Kids removed a jam, now all prints/copies are ghosted/smear


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.

Some letters are not printing clearly. They are smeared. I just replaced the black cartridge. It seems that after a few pages it gets better and you don't see as much of it.


Please check the printer ink levels and if the ink level is fine and it still not printing then I will like to know type printer you are using,then I can carring on from there.

Magicolor 2400W error


This happens to me every few months, I have to do a VERY detailed cleaning of all toner sensors. The knowledgebase on KM's website is actually very good about walking you through which sensors to clean and pictures indicating where they are located. This has fixed me up every time. GOOD LUCK!

HP J5780 Problem-Line on printed pages


most likely you have a flat spot on the roller.
that is exactly what is going to happen, when the paper hits the flat spot or a low spot. the paper stops and skips. them the print is coming out smeared.
you can get a repair kit or replacement roller from HP.

Print smear


It might be the fuser that is defect. perform a half paper path test. Let the paper get pulled in for half of it's length and open the cartridge door so printer stops, check the paper and see if issue is on the out print before passing the fuser. Also check that you have the power cord directly to wall socket and not using an extension cable that may reduce the current to the printer. Another tip can be to change paper type in the printing preferences to a heavier type ex. card stock wich have the printer to work slower.

Samsung CLP-300 dark prints and smears


For starters remember this is not meant to be a PHOTO Printer, I am guessing the Spearing is because Glossy paper does not hold the toner like Regular paper or at least until it is fused. I am a technitiian and i also own this printer.
