My Dell 1720dn mono laser printer has not printed properly for some time - in fact it's dreadful! The letters and dark images have white vertical lines going through them, and some of the printing do

Change your toner cartridge. A properly working toner cartridge will never leave that much toner lying around. The white lines are an indication that either the toner is low, or the mag roller is defective.

I have an HP3500 which I've had from new since 2004. On the whole it's been remarkably reliable but recently I have problems with a multicoloured stripe which appears down the lefthand side. It...

Hi Richard,
Dots, Lines and smudges on the printouts are usually due to deteriorating cartridges and cleaning the green drum of the cartridge may help temporarily. Take out the cartridge and inspect them. You may observe the lines on the green drum. Gently clean the roller/ green drum with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth wiping off the toner dots marks/ lines. (corresponding to the location where you are having a green line on the paper)
Also, make sure that the visible inside of the printer are clean and there is no spilled toner inside, which sometimes results in dots.
Moreover, streaks (thicker lines) and dots etc indicate faulty PCR Roller which is located behind the green drum inside the cartridge. Observing the PCR with the help of a sharp torch light would let you assess the condition of the PCRs at the corresponding location where lines are appearing. Replace the Cartridges one by one and inspect the prints for the changes. I think you would be able to identify the faulty cartridge/ rollers. Also, if the waste toner area is filled and/or the plastic wiper/ cleaning blade removes the leftover toner/ waste from the drum and holds the waste is worn out, it results in spilled toner usually at edges and at early stages lines only.
Moreover, the function of the fuser is to fuse the toner onto the paper and it is usually done at the end of the printing process just before the paper is ejected (and the image/ toner on the paper is just fused - not changed). The fault at the fuser area usually results in smudges, ghosted image or unbind toner (which easily gets erased when touched). The time during the printing cycle when the toner is spread on the paper, additional toner (resulting in lines) is shifted to the paper due to cartridge related issues, which results in lines. Note that after cleaning the rollers, the print quality improves and the lines disappear or lighten. Try and check if the above suggestions work.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I changed the toner on my Lexmark E250dn and now it has the "!" light on all the time and won't print. It's a new cartridge what is going on?

"!" means error.

Try removing cartridge and installing it again and might be one of the cartridge missing.

Try operating manual. Might helps, there are lots of reason for the error

Follow the link on dispute about wrong cartridge due "Toner cartridge region mismatch"

Hope this helps

Won't print

You may have a bad cartridge.
This usually happens when you use generic or refilled cartridges.
Try another cartridge.

Supply error

This means the toner chip is damaged or missing or can't be read from the printer.

remove the toner cartridge and check if the e-label pin is broken... if so replace it and set the cartridge back

If you have changed the toner recently, or have a third party toner in it. this is the reason ...

You need to replace the toner and if the error is still there then you know it is the reader failing.

thank you
have a nice day
all the best with ur printer

Hp 4550 vertical line down center of page

From the service manual:

Vertical lines or streaks
 Check for a leak where light might be entering the printer.
 Check for circumferential scars on the photosensitive drum. If scars are present, replace the
drum cartridge if the line goes through all colors.
 Check for circumferential scars on the upper fusing roller. If scars are present, replace the upper
fusing roller if the line goes through all colors.
 Remove the imaging drum and inspect main charger or imaging drum for a contaminant, such as
a fiber, if the line goes through all colors.
CAUTION Do not expose the imaging drum to light for more than 15 seconds. The drum is light sensitive, and
exposure to light can cause permanent damage.
Vertical black lines
 The toner cartridge is defective.
 The toner cartridge is not seated properly.
 The fuser entrance is dirty.
 The fuser has scratches on it.
 This might be a repetitive defect. If so, the lines will repeat at a consistent interval down the page.
 The printer needs to be cleaned.
 There is a problem in the heating element.
Vertical white lines
 If white lines or streaks appear only in the black areas of the printed media, print several
configuration pages to clear the anomaly. If this does not clear the problem, check the sleeve
surface to confirm the defect, then replace the black toner cartridge.
 If white lines appear only in a particular color, try printing several configuration pages to clear the
error. If the error does not clear, check the sleeve surface to confirm the defect, then replace the
defective toner cartridge.
 There is a lack of toner or the toner cartridge is faulty.
 There is dirt in the laser path.
 The fuser is defective.
 A mirror in the laser scanner is dirty.

New toner prints very light. No setting changes on printer.

I had a similar problem, it turned out to be a cheap toner cartridge. Replaced it with an HP cartridge and have had any problem since.
