Roller marks on photos when printing

Everytime I print a photo on my new HP 2605dn I get mark across the photo. I looks like the rollers are creating these marks before the ink/toner has time to dry.

Re: Roller marks on photos when printing

This printer is laser based so the toner is heated onto the page. It could be the transfer roller that is dirty. The transfer roller can be found on the door when you open the printer. It is the thin roller at the bottom. Check and see if there is a build up on it or if there is a repeating line on the larger transfer assembly which is also on the door. You can try rubbing them of with a dry lint free cloth. It may be that you need to replace it.

My HP LJ 4 is printing Grey roller type marks. Not diagonal it's like a rectangle across the the width of the paper about 1 1/2 wide then a space about 1/4 then the Grey again. Any help would be gr

Sounds like dirty rollers or perhaps a bad print cartridge. If you have another ctg to replace try it first if lines are still there check the rollers inside the machine where the paper is fed. Use the sheet to match where the marks are to the rollers on the machine. When you find them clean with alcohol and let dry then try again. there are also paper feed tires that are inside the paper tray that could be dirty also.

Hope this helps

Roller Marks

Try this to clean the rollers:

Put in blank sheets of paper in then print out from microsoft word a blank document.

This should clean the rollers. Also, there might be special cleaning sheets that you can purchase from Epson.

Roller marks on paper

Hi, Sounds like your problem is not the rollers. If its marked on the pages, its not the pickup rollers nor the Exit rollers that leave marks.

Either 1 you have a bad Toner Cartridge. or 2 Fuser sleeve is bad and needs to be replaced.

(1) If the toner cartridge is refurbished that is your first indication that you should replace with a HP Manufactured Toner. Refurbished toners always go bad. In fact many of them do not even last the amount they are said to last.

(2) If its not the toner cartridge, then the only other thing that is fusing roller marks is the fuser. In order to do this. You will have to remove the back panel. Unscrew the fuser.*note fuser can be extremely hot after use. be careful.* From this point you should be able to look at the Fuser sleeve and see a worn out sleeve on the side which your roller marks are at. You will either need to replace it if it looks bad. Or you can clean it when its got with a piece of paper or an alcohol pad to remove excess toner clocked on the fuser.

That toner is whats showing up as roller marks on your prints.

I hope this helps. PLEASE RATE Porfavor :)

if your roller mark seems grayish it could be cause by a dirty roller in the paper path, open up your printer and clean with alcohol, there were some cases that the rollers were somehow softened and causing mark along the prints if this is the case you need to send thi to a tech for a part replacement
