Ghost images of the same printing repeated down the page


Run a half test. While printing a few pages, open the cover, pull out the toner and look down at the paper. If you see the ghost images replace the toner. If you don't see the ghost images, replace the fuser.

If you are getting a "shadow" behind the text or image it is probably your fuser that is causing the problem. Anytime you see a double image or the print is smearing the fuser (aka fixing assembly) is to blame. You can troubleshoot the problem to see for sure before calling out a technician. Send a one page test print job to the printer. Open the rear "output" tray so that the print job exits the rear of the printer. Watch the paper as it is pulled into the machine. When you see the leading edge of the print exiting the printer open up the front door of the printer. This will of course cause the machine to jam up but its worth it. Carefully remove the toner cartridge. Look at the print on the page still inside the machine. Do you see the same grey image? If not then the problem is the fuser. If you do see the grey image then the problem is the toner cartridge. Stopping the print job in the middle of the printer like that allows you to see what the image looks like before it goes into the fuser. If the fuser is the problem call a tech. It is about a $100 - 150 repair for the fuser depending on the labor rates where you live.

Printed page not clean, faded characters in background of page. Any suggestions? I cleaned the pickup roller.


Hi,

Have you tried another toner cartridge? And when you say it has faded characters in the background? Does it look like it's reprinting the image kind of? If so, you will need the fuser unit replaced. The fuser is responsible for melting the toner to the paper, when it goes bad it can cause "ghosting" meaning it reprints previous images. A technician would be needed at this point, the part number for the fuser is RM1-1289.

Please let me know if there is anything else you need.

Open the right door is there an image on the drum? (if not) It sounds though that your fuser has toner build up on it and is at end of life. These fusers are harder than most to rebuild so maybe a service call? -Carl

Is your transfer roller clean?

Try changing the toner first it's the most common cause for this fault failing this then it is going to be the fuser unit will need replacing as it is worn.
