Since i install a new drum, i have smudges on my copies how do i fix


    Sir/Madam

    If you have Brother Printer print quality problems, Then I suggest You clean the Your Brother printer drum unit as follows:

    Small Spots on the printed pages:

    If your printed document has any small white or colored spots, follow the steps below.

    1.Open the manual feed slot cover.


    68682939-74ee-4f87-a7a5-f02054ffd056.gif

    2. Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

    3c58990a-a64f-467e-80f1-d002cea26746.gif

    3.Using both hands, put one blank sheet of paper in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper touches the paper feed roller. Wait until the machine automatically feeds the paper. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.



    Note
    • Make sure that the paper is straight and in the correct position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
    • Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
    • Do not put paper in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state. An error may occur and the printer will stop printing.

    2eb57e9d-950e-4b6e-ad8b-56c8ebb19b07.gif

    4.Make sure that the printer is in the Ready state. Press + or - to choose "Color Correction". Press OK.

    5.Press + or - to choose "Drum Cleaning".

    6.Press Go. The printer will pull in the piece of paper and start cleaning the drum unit.

    6b922b0a-02b3-4722-b1c9-66c30edf3521.gif

    7.When the printer has finished cleaning, "Completed" appears on the LCD.
    Press Cancel so that the printer returns to the Ready state.

    8.Repeat steps 3 to 7 two more times using a new blank sheet of paper each time. Upon completion, please discard the used paper. If the print problem still remains, please go to the Step 9.

    Large spots on the printed pages:
    Hint If your printed page has colored spots at 94mm (3.7 in) intervals, please follow the step below.
    1. 9.Turn off the printer power switch.

    caa08e02-67b8-4b61-b1fd-f671f7a5511b.gif

    10. Fully open the top cover by lifting up on the handle (1).

    51223372-6d42-4884-a45a-5442dfcea382.gif

    11. See the print sample to identify the color causing the problem. The color of the spots is the color of the drum you should clean. For example, if the spots are cyan, you should clean the drum for cyan. Take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly of the color causing the problem.


    Caution
    • We recommend that you place the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly on a clean, flat surface with a sheet of disposable paper or cloth underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.
    • To prevent damage to the printer from static electricity, DO NOT touch the electrodes shown in the illustration.

    2a1279fb-d964-4573-9637-8c4266c18daa.gif

    12.Push down the green-labeled lock lever (1) and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit.

    Caution
    1. Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, wipe or wash it off with cold water at once.
01d4b807-b16c-4217-9312-e3512e748120.gif

13.Put the print sample in front of the drum unit, and find the exact position of the poor print.

fe28efe7-23fa-418e-a71c-71a7d329763b.gif
14.Turn the drum unit gear by hand while looking at the surface of the OPC drum (1).

f8e1a002-f52a-4911-84f3-67e5a15fc8ba.gif

15.When you have found the mark on the drum that matches the print sample, wipe the surface of the OPC drum with a dry cotton swab until the dust or glue on the surface comes off.

DO NOT clean the surface of the photosensitive drum with a sharp object.

Note Make sure that you put in the toner cartridge properly or it may separate from the drum unit.

17.Slide each drum unit and toner cartridge assembly into the printer. Make sure that you match the toner cartridge color to the same color label on the printer.

C- Cyan, M- magenta, Y- Yellow, K- Black

18.Close the top cover of the printer.

Ghosting


Normally ghosting is caused by a bad fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1)
Print something. As the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the cover..
Look at the paper. If there is no ghosting, the fuser is bad. If there is ghosting, could be a cartridge drum.
Follow these steps print a Print quality troubleshooting page to identify which print cartridge is causing the issue.
  1. Open Toolbox .
  2. Click the Help folder, and then click the Troubleshooting page.
  3. Click Print , to print the page. The page prints five bands of color, which are divided into four overlapping sections. By examining each section, you can isolate the problem to a particular print cartridge. Figure 4: Print quality troubleshooting page bandsc01417618.gif 1 - Yellow 2 - Cyan 3 - Black 4 - Magenta

Okidata c9650 printer. technician told me to replace transfer belt in my unit because i was having an issue with the color print quality. It had a light streak running through it and the top of the page...


That message is indicating that you need to replace the black drum which also may have been what was causing your origanal issue. Whenever you have a print quility issue print four seperate documents each document using one of the four colors (black, yellow, magenta, cyan)used by the printer. If the problem only shows up in one color then that is where the problem is coming from.

I just installed a brand new HP 17 color cartridge in my HP deskjet 845c (as it appeared that the old one had run out of pink and yellow color) and now the new one will only print out in blue. I took out...


One of the first things I would do is called "footprinting" the cartridge. Remove the cartridge from you machine and firmly press the bottom of the cartridge, the print head, onto a paper towel. Use your other hand to apply even pressure from underneath the paper towel. This, hopefully, will cause ink to bleed out of the cartridge and onto the paper towel. Be aware that you may get ink on you and take measures to prevent it if necessary. A good footprint from that cartridge should yield three small rectangles of the three colors in the cartridge, it is ok if they bleed into each other. If cyan is the only color flowing you can try moistening the paper towel with some warm distilled water and gently holding this against the print head for a short while (30 sec), again ink should come out. If there the cyan is still the only color to flow there is nothing more you can do at home. Return the cartridge if you can.

If however all three colors footprint well then it may be a driver and/or firmware issue with the printer. I would try reinstalling the driver first, then upgrading the firmware is an upgrade is available. Those machine are getting older and probably do not have as much support available as newer machines do.

Hp officejet v40. new cartridge but missing blue when printing


Sounds like your cyan print head is clogged. You can try to get it flowing yourself by rubbing the print head with a wet paper towel. If you press the print head on a dry paper towel you should see three distinct lines of color. If you still don't see the cyan, try letting the print head rest on the wet paper towel on a surface that ink can be cleaned up from or one you don't care about staining. If the cyan still won't flow, you should go back to where you purchased it and return it for a new one.

My HP 2840 is printing blue lines on the side of the page


3 Causes for printing Blue Lines on the side of the pages.


01. If it happens with test pages from the machine itself as well as docs;then most likely it is a bad cyan cartridge.if you open the drum shutter on the cyan cartridge,can you see a line on the drum?

02. If the Drum is opened and you can see a continuous line of blue toner is at both sides of the drum. Chance of getting blue lines printed on the side of the pages.

03. If the cartridge is leaking then and will need to be changed.thats why it's ending up on the belt also and it prints blue line on the side of the pages.

Yellow not printing - but only in streaks


Your yellow problem sounds like a bad yellow developer housing. Take the drum out and look at the developer housing, You will need a flash light to do so. See if the roller is solid yellow. Even if it is there may not be any developer left in the housing.
The Cyan sounds like the drum since it gets worse as it prints.
That can also be caused by the transfer belt cleaner. But that normally is the opposite. It has a rainbow sort of streak and it gets better as the machine runs.

OKI 5600 - Can you do a 'clean'?


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.
