Ink blobs on edges of printouts

I have an HP Color LaserJet 2500L.

On the right edge of anything I am printing there is a repeating blob of unfused ink on all of my printouts. This ink is deposited and not fused on to the paper, so it will smear. I tried cleaning out the printer, but it is still happening.

This is happening on color and b & w printouts.

Dear sir,

I figured out this problem it may cause; The problem behaves strangely why only on the right section the printout is not fused. The common section I first check is the high voltage circuit causing no static properties the powder shall be fused with the drum's developer. Now, it is clear also that the cause is within the drum. Pls check drum's life by printing the machine diagnostic details to check all moving and consumables counters. Clean the drum by rotating the developer roller. Well see if there's a irregularity of powder distribution. Have a nice day.

I changed the drum to my HP LJ 2500L and now ot only prints in black and white. I have triple checked it's the right drum and there are no errors showing up. What's the problem?

Print a Configuration page, if it is grayscale, you probably installed a bad drum.
Make sure that "color" mode is selected in the program you are using or the printer driver. Check and see if "grayscale is selected.
If you are printing transparencies, they ONLY print grayscale.
Go to and download the latest drivers.

Lexmark Z715 will not print but computer says it is printing

The Z715 needs a #50 black ink cartridge and a working color cartridge to print. To check if there ios ink coming out of your black or color cartridge touch the bottom of it to a paper towel and if you see a solid black blob or 3 blobs of Yellow, blue and red for the color then your problem is else where. If U are printing stuff from the internet sometimes the printer will try to use the color cartridge to print this so even though the black is working it comes out blank if the color is dry
