On a Dell3100cn changing the paper setting to covers2 helps.

Here is how I understand the problem:

The heating element does not always get hot enough and the toner gets smeared before is is fixed (in the photographic sense). Changing the paper type to covers2 increase the temp of the heating element eliminating the smearing.

Getting shadowing on print out?

shadowing or ghost printing is usually caused by a fuser that is not running at its opperating temperature the fuser is the problem about 85% of the time. the thermistor is directly responsible replacing this part will clear up the prolem or repace the whole fuser depending on the wear. toner cartridges can also do this for the toner to do this its usually a expose drum has been set down on a dirty or rough surface thus compromising its surface

I am having trouble with shadowing on my printer quality. How do I correct this?

If the shadowing is not related to the document being printed, You should change the drum! If the shadow is similar to the text being printed, it could be the lamp that has come out of its place. service required!

Good luck

Shadowing/graying with printing

Hi fa1103:
Gray background
1. Do not use media that has already been run through the printer.
2. Try using a different type of media.
3. Print a few more pages to see if the problem corrects itself.
4. Turn over the stack of media in the tray. Also, try rotating the stack 180°.
5. Open the Configure Device menu at the printer control panel. On the Print Quality
submenu, increase the TONER DENSITY setting. See the user guide.
6. Make sure that the environmental specifications for the printer are being met.
try these steps to see if they work for you.
