Samsung mono laser Printer ML600 printing and feed problems

I now get shadow printing under the lettering of the page I am printing, smudging and paper feed problems. These problems have arisen since I replaced the previous dedicated cartridge with a new dedicated cartridge.

I have taken out the new cartridge and can see that one of the roller cogs is mucky. I can see a slim rubber roller which could be given a wipe but with what?

I would be grateful for advice on how to deal with this problem with this printer. I don't have a manual for the printer nor is there any online guidance for this kind of problem.

Thanks

    We've tried vacuuming the cavity which has cleaned it up. As yet have not touched the rubber roller.



    I wonder if there is an electronic eye that needs attention, but if so where?



    I looked on the underside of the machine and can see a window that shows a motherboard which I am not going to touch. There is also a central metal plate. I hope I don't have to dismantle the machine to deal with this problem.

Apprentice, thanks. It is good to know that someone else has similar experiences. The paper feed difficulty I put down to the fact that I am not much good at spreading the paper before I place it in the feed. I do flick through it. I reckon a good card player would handle the paper issue more expertly than I do!

Since cleaning etc. like you did, there has been an improvement in cleanliness of the paper, no repeat of shadow printing, the occasional smudge, not sure why, but the whole printing process is much more reliable now.

When printing on ML4550B, there is a ~1cm intermittent black patches vertically on the right side of the printed page.


This is possibly toner on the paper feed rollers. If you happend to use refurbished cartridges they are often over filled to claim more pages for your buck. But they fail to say expect smudges down the printed page.
use a cloth and some metho to clean the paper path

Samsung scx5315f printing black smudge along edge of page


The fact that it's printing anything suggests that it is not a Toner problem. Remove the toner, and have a look at the run inside the printer, checking for any excess toner which is in there. Also, check the Drum and Imaging Unit for damage, wear and tear etc. There will also be a static strip near the imager, with a little tab which you can sweep across the unit to clean it.

Samsung ML-2010 Mono Laser Printer leaves unwanted marks on page.


if older printer or well used printer (All laser printers if they have print quality issues - it is mostly either the toner or the fuser). the only way to tell is get (borrow) a toner and see if problem is the same or remove the fuser (the hot thing in the printer) and see if the "ironing" unit or fuser rollers are dirty or worn out or scratched

Black ink smudges for color print mode only, not for grayscale


- Try to reallign the cartridge, run a print test, after that if the issue still persist - uninstall and reinstall software - run test and re-allign again the cardtridge using software. run print test again.
