SOURCE: No printing on right side, I replaced the imaging drum but that did not solve the problem.

There are two possible solutions to this common problem.

1) The Cyan cartridge may not be in 100% of the way. If the handle of the Cyan cartridge prutrudes even slightly, it can obstruct the printhead for the black developer. Remove and reinstall the Cyan cartridge and test.

2) The printhead is dirty, with some toner spillage on the printhead. All new imaging drums also include a new cleaning pad for the cleaning wand.

The cleaning wand is designed to clean toner off of the printhead. you can see this in your printer manual, but basically, just open the front cover, pull the the blue handle on the right side forward ( this opens the access cover for the cleaning wand on the right side of the printer ).

gently pull the cleaning wand out ALL THE WAY, then slide it back in ALL THE WAY. do this several times.

The cleaning wand is intended to travel across the print head in only one direction, which is why you should make sure that it is pulled all the way out.

One of these two solutions should fix your problem. If the problem is resolved, but then reappears after a short time, then you have a defective developer that is leaking toner on the print head. The color of the defective developer can be determined by the color of the cleaning pad after cleaning the printhead as discribed above.

Why are my photographs printing darker than on screen


Pictures have come a long way... but satisfaction really has stayed where it's at. The screen as you call it is a series of mirrors or lack of in your case.you see a crisp image and like what you see; push the button and the process of duplicating what you see on that "screen" commences. image lenses mirrors shaping cicuitry fading ,more mirrors, a few lasers a few more mirrors and then finally to the drum/developer/toner section, which is added to or subtracted to depending on about ten human control factors and a few non-human things like the original, paper being used ,age/number of copies om color unit and good ole' dust on imaging surfaces. Other than that it's fairly simple. ( spend 120.00 on a good cleaning or give it to your kids and buy a new one) ~~~~SC

Tip

Using a color enlarger to print both color and black and white photos


Some enlargers have dials on the front that are labeled yellow, cyan and magenta. These enlargers are made to print both black and white and color photos. To print in colors you use the dials to perfect the colors of your print. Let say that you took a picture and the colors look to be a bit off. In the light you would hold up a color filter to the image and decide which filter makes the color look closest to what you want the final image to look like. Then taking the information on the card you go back into the dark room and adjust the dials on the enlarger according to the card that was used. If you were looking through a green filter then you would lower the number on the magenta dial.

Printing in black and white on an enlarger with these dials is a little different. Since there are no colors in the black and white paper these dials have a different function. They are used to adjust the contrast of an image. If you turn the light on in the enlarger without paper under it and turn the dials you will notice that the magenta will make the light darker. When you print with the yellow and cyan dials at 0 and magenta at around 10-20 this will add contrast the image. You can always develop all your negatives without touching any of these dials, but if you can master them then your images will have a little less flat than those with little to no contrast.

Got the C5180 from a relative because it didn't work. I tried a new black ink tank, it doesn't print anything in black. Color print looks weak and washed out without black for shadow, and black...


The printed output is fuzzy, blurry, or grainy, or the edges of objects in the images are jagged. Solution Follow these steps until the issue is resolved. Step one: Check your paper
  • Many papers have printing and non-printing sides. Load the paper with the printing side down.
  • Use the correct paper type for the project. For everyday documents, plain paper works well. For documents with dense printing, such as high-contrast graphics or photographs, use HP Advanced paper for the best results.
  • If these steps do not help, try a different paper. Ink might not bleed as easily on heavier paper. Paper that does not accept ink well is also prone to bleeding and smearing. HP designs its inks and papers to work together.
Step two: Check the settings
  1. In the program being used for printing, click File , and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches the paper type exactly, select it instead of Automatic .
    • Paper size : Make sure that this option matches the paper loaded in the product.
    To see additional options, click the Advanced tab, and then click Advanced Features . The Advanced Features window opens. Consider changing the following option: Ink volume : Adjust the amount of ink that prints on a page. For lighter images (less ink), drag the slider to the left. For darker images (more ink), drag the slider to the right. The lighter the ink volume, the more quickly the printout dries.
Step three: Check image resolution Make sure that the image file has enough resolution for the size of the printed picture. Although many photo applications can enlarge an image or part of an image to any size, eventually the individual pixels become visible and the whole image looks blurry. Here are some general guidelines for image file resolutions:
  • 94 pixels per cm (240 pixels per inch) for images to print on smaller format photo paper, such as 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch)
  • 117 pixels per cm (300 pixels per inch) or higher for larger format photo papers
  • Lower resolutions might produce acceptable images when printed on rough-textured paper
Step four: Align the cartridges If the previous steps have not improved the appearance of the printout, align the cartridges. See the user guide for alignment instructions.

Black print is fading on one side of the paper. Colours are fine. What can I do? Tim


The cause of this fading is due to a build up of toner on the developer blades. If it looks like this with streaking vertical fading.
slamfix_46.jpg The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer. I have a link to instructions that should help you http://www.fixya.com/support/r4120906-clean_developer_blades_samsung_clp_300 Hope this helps you.

I have Minolta 2300W Laser Printer and it folds the first page only about 3 to 4 inches down makes a nice one inch fold but take that out and print again...next page fine.....now printing with two wide...


The is blocked by dust on the side of the paper on the image unit that would have color associated with the print. Remove all the image units and clean all the laser glass. Replace those image units also if streaking as for the paper ensure correct paper side and media type.

Faded printing on 5x7 size paper


Sure. One of the papers is probably clay based (Shiny) and one is rag based (rough and dull). Clay based produces the most vibrant inkjet images and rag based produces the best laser printer images. I bet the two papers are different in composition. I see this all the time.

Printing pictures


If your normal print looks OK, make sure that you are printing your pictures on the correct side of the photo paper. Most photo paper will only print properly on one side. If you print on the other side, the image looks very grainy and faded, and the ink will still be quite wet when it comes out of the printer.

Here's the 'secret' sevice manual: http://www.feedroller.com/Store/Service%20Manual/50_53_5600.PDF
I would also (very carefully) check for torn paper around the rollers of the imaging drum that might be rubbing the area.
