"Tilted" printouts I replaced my original toner cartridge with a generic one and coincidentally, all my prints are "tilted" to the left. It doesn't matter if it is scanned or printed from a PC. Any thoughts before I buck up and try an original toner cartridge? Thanks,

One way to verify if it is the cart. is to install the old and see if it happens, if not get an original cart, if yes it could be the scanner (laser assembly)

How to reset oki b411dn cartridge after refilling


Producers of printers protecting oneself against the mass copying of original toners implemented the number of solutions being aimed at hampering the copying of their solutions. Towards a number of recipes for individual sub-assemblies of the cartridge intended for a laser printer applying special scaling circuits installed in the casing of the toner which are suming the number of printed sides up was the most spectacular solution and are freezing the laser contribution after the achievement of set limit of printouts.

Cannot remove toner cartridge


Was there a loud cracking gear sound when you print ?
Or the printout was blank?
If these two symptoms exist, then your left frame is broken, you need to replace a new left frame or at least the locking DEVELOP JOINT (might be broken).

My hp1012 is printing dark with shading on the pages and shadow or echos. Can something be replaced or fixed?


with this issue, you pretty much have to run a half way test unless you have the convieniance of another toner to try. basically, it's either going to br your toner or your fuser and a halfway test will determine this if you don't have another toner to try.

The Half-way Test

You will need to print a page and open the toner lid when you think the paper is underneath the toner cartridge. This will stop the printing so you can pull the toner cartridge out and look at the partially printed paper. It may take a few tries to time this test correctly so the paper stops under the toner but not completely into the fuser.
1. Print a test page from Tray 1, the "fold-down" Multi-Purpose tray on your printer.
2. Just as the test page completely disappears into the printer, open the toner lid door. The print job will stop, sensing an error.

3. Pull the toner cartridge out, and you will find the test page sitting directly underneath the toner.
4. Carefully remove the page by gently pulling the page upwards & free from the toner cavity. Careful! The toner has not yet been fused to the paper, so the print can be somewhat messy on your hands and may smudge easily.

Examine the printout.
1. If you do not see the print defect on your test page, that means the defect is being added later in the print process by the fuser. Fusers are the main component in a maintenance kit; click here to view our selection of maintenance kits for various LaserJet printers.
2. If the print defect is visible on this printout, that means the print defect is occurring before the fuser. Try replacing the toner cartridge (click here to view our selection of toner cartridges).
If you determine the print defect is occurring before the fuser, and swapping toners doesn’t fix the problem, there could be several things causing the problem. In the order of most likely to least likely: you could have two defective toner cartridges, the transfer roller might be faulty, the laser scanner could be dirty or defective, or the high voltage power supply could be bad. You might want to email or call since these scenarios are not as common.

Red light is flashing next to the triangle on my HP2600n laserjet. Do I have to replace all print cartridges that printer says are low


You only need to replace the light indicated toner cartridge but if the others are reading low be prepared to change them. You can do a supplies page printout from the printer menu, click on information and scroll down, this will tell you how much toner you have left in each cartridge

Either you purchased a a bad quality remanufactured toner cartridge or your fuser film is damaged.

If there is some kind of debris in black color that is on printouts, your fuser film might be damaged. Have a printer technician replace it.

If there is no debris, only bad quality printouts, it's the toner cartridge that needs replacement.

Black text only printing dark on right side of page. I jsut put in a new black toner cartridge


My solution
(CAUTION: Never loss balance while tilting printer! You may drop and damage your printer! Hold the printer firmly all the time! Ask someone to help you if needed!)

Here, front of the printer is where you can access the cartridge, back of the printer is where you connect the power cord and USB cable, left is your left, right is your right.

1.Lift the front to keep the printer tilt to its back at about 45 degree
2.Power on printer while it's tilted back, wait untill green light is on
3.Open the front door, red light will be on, then close the door, printer will start up again,wait untill green light is on
4.Repeat step 3 once again, then put the printer back to level position
5.Lift the right to keep the printer tilt to its left at about 45 degree
6.Open the front door, red light will be on, then close the door, printer will start up again, wait untill green light is on
7.Repeat step 6 once again, then put the printer back to level position
8.Print some test page to see if there is any improvement of black print quality.


You may try several times and print several pages each time before you finally cure the problem.

Good luck! And do it safely!

My CLP-350 Samsung printer only prints black ink on half the page! While the other colours all print perfectly, the black ink prints strong and clear on the right side of the page but as you approach the...


Here is my solution, hope it will solve your problem.

From your post, I believe your CLP-350N printer has enough black toner. The black cartridge is on the far right side of the printer, so the black toner is harder to go to left side of the roller than right side. Everytime we start the printer, it will move some toner of each color to the roller before it shows ready to print.

Because we always use B&W printing when we start the printer, but less Color printing. The result is there are always enough toner on the 3 color rollers, but the black toner is lean on the black roller. When this gets worse, the left side of the black roller may hardly get any toner at all -- so it only print black on the right side fo paper.

Laser jet produces printouts that are smudged and dark


Remove the toner cartridge and use a soft cloth to wipe the photo drum clean of toner. Put it back and try again, if you still get bad prints, then you need a new toner cartridge.

Skidmarks on the printout


Time to think about replacing the image drum unit. Excess toner is not being cleaned off properly and is winding up on your printed pages. The drum unit is separate from the toner cartridge, and you normally replace the toner cartridges several times before needing a drum. Replacements are available from many online sources and at office supply stores. Generic replacements run around $50 and the original part is around $100.
