SOURCE: printing black shaded on complete page

I assume you mean the pages are coming out dirty or gary versus white and black text.
change the drum/cartridge, if you get the same results it could be the hi-voltage power supply. most common is the drum.

SOURCE: Lines of copies utilizing automatic feeder

look to the side of your big glass and you'll see a piece of glass about 1.5" wide. thats the galss that is used for scanning from the feeder. theres got to be something on that glass. possibly white-out or even a small speck of toner can cause that. look closely.

You need to clean the scanner glass. Also known as the strip glass. It is a 1 inch wide strip of glass that runs from the front to the back. Your documents pass over this glass when they are scanned. Some of the wax crayon probably smeared off onto the glass and now when you scan the scanner sees these marks as stationary and thus records them as solid lines. Just look into the scanner section where your documents are fed in or depending on model, some are just to the left of the large original glass.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Clear the memory in the printer. Try unplugging it for 2 mins.

SOURCE: 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.

I turned emoji on..it downloaded, it's now on my keyboard. When I type a message the smiley face/symbol appears in my message. The recipient of my message is not seeing the smiley face.


Hi,
This is because the recipient system is not supported with smiley. Recipient have to download the same or else have to make smiley ON.

Hi. I would suggest that you unplug the printer, reinstall software and check you computer for viruses. If i continues, try letting it print out. maybe someone set so that 30 pages with a smiley would be printed next time you plugged it in. I how this will fix you problem.

HP 1300 randomly printing pages with tiny smiley faces and square


Try reinstalling your drivers. The computer may be confused with two different sets because of your second printer. If that doesn't work, and you have another computer available, hook the printer up to that one and install the drivers and see if the problem persists. If it does, then I really don't know what you can do, because that means the problem is in the printer's internal control and would be very hard to fix. If it doesn't persist on the second computer, then you know it's the first computer that's causing it. If nothing else works, try running a scan for viruses and spyware because they too could be interfering with your printer drivers. The computer actually does communicate with the printer even when you're not printing anything. It basically checks to make sure it's still there and waits for a response back with the printer status, etc. Some other program (whether wanted or unwanted) could be interfering.

Your printer might be having hardware problems. You can try removing and reinserting the printer cable. It might be loose due to the constant movement it does during printing. Also, inspect your cartridge. It is possible you have not removed the plastic covering the nozzle.
