Question about Lexmark Optra SC 1275 Laser Printer
I get about 3 spots on the right side of the page, the spots are on the exact same spot on each page. I have replaced the printer with a new photoconductor and all new cartridges. I opened the fuser assembly and noticed a couple of streaks/spots on the orange colored drums. Could this be the problem ? any ideas anybody.....
Thanks to John A., I appreciate your responses based on your suspicion I checked the fuser assembly and am reporting on the streaks I saw in the drum.
Thanks in advance to any suggestions !
If you replaced the cartridge and the streaks are still there then it's the fuser. you can try to clean the "fuser" roller with a little alcohol and your finger nail (after it's cooled down) to scratch off the toner, if it's an actual scratch on the roller you need to replace the fuser as it will pickup toner again and leave marks.
hope this helps
thanks for rating

Are the spots the same on every page?
Start a print from tray 1/manual feed and just as the trailing edge of paper is entering the machine; quickly open it to stop print and take out the cartridge and look at the drum and the paper underneath. If the issue is there at that point then it would point to the cartridge. If not then it is in the fuser area.
If it is the drum area:
Clean the loose toner up with a dry lint free cloth.
If it is the fuser, it may have a bad spot and would need to be replaced.
