This could be any of several problems
Are you talking about printing of scanned images or all document from the computer also?
Waste ink tank is getting gull and need service[If this machine is so fitted].
It could be a scanning error and you not selecting the image area correctly so that the scanner is scanning full out.
You could also refer the query to www.fixyourownprinter.com- typing in your printer type/model in the Forum field

    Ok this printer does not have a waste ink collector so its not that.
    Scans print 'clean' Yes?
    Is it all documents or certain one only via computer?
    Try several types if indeed you have several types to try.
    For example a Word Document
    A Web page
    A Picture
    What else do you have.
    Trying to establish the type of data affected here

Try to print clean page ,
Print a cleaning page During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate inside the printer and can cause print quality issues such as toner specks or spatter, smears, streaks, lines or repeating marks. Follow these steps to clean the printer's paper path.
  1. Load copier-grade paper (not bond, heavy, or rough paper).
  2. On the printer's control panel, touch the Menu button.
  3. Touch Configure Device .
  4. Touch Print Quality .
  5. Touch Process Cleaning Page .

Printer only prints top and bottom lines on page


All web based documents, especially bank statements, require a COLOUR cartridge, so if your cartridge is empty, it will print blank pages. Although the font may look black... it is normally NOT. Altentaively you may also need to instruct your printer to print "background images".

My HP 4ML has been printing fine until recently. Every print job, big or small, the first couple of pages print the pages mostly black, then start to fade the more pages I print in the same print job. ...


You didn't say that you swapped out the toner.
Let's come back to that point later.

Put paper in the manual feed tray.
Print something.
As soon as the paper feeds halfway into the printer, open the top cover.
Pull out the toner, look down at the paper. Is it mostly black?
If the answer is yes....replace the toner.
Vacuum out the inside of the printer and print again.
I think you have a bad toner cartridge

Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs


I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

Perform a half paper path test. Put the paper in the manual feed tray, print a test page, when half of paper is pulled in the printer open toner door so the printer stops. remove the toner and check print is the issue there you have trouble with your toner cartridge. Otherwise there is an issue with fuser. Mostly I think you have an issue with tonercartridge, try take it out and shake gentle

Black dotted lines accross the whole page


Jason,

If the whole page is covered with stuff that's not supposed to be there, and that stuff sometimes changes shape or color on each page. then you look to the DRIVERS and connection 1st. Corrupt printer memory can also cause this.

If the corruption tends to be consistent across print jobs and it's only on certain spots on the page, you can start to look for mechanical defects.

Can you describe in more detail?

Sounds like the configured paper sized does not match the actual paper page height. So that when it does Top Of Form paper movement the paper stops slightly too low. Doing several form feeds should confirm this. If this is it then reconfigure the paper size to match the paper. Also measure to paper to see if it matches what you want it to be.
