Sqeaks are hard to fix over the computer but if the black spots are random change the toner cartridge. If they are 3 or 4 to the page change the drum.

I want to print metallic gold and gold-foil TITLES on a standard CMYK background with an Alps 5000P. What is the procedure to overlay the spot color where I want to print the gold?


Create a mask or layer for each spot color you want to print using only black. When printing spot colors anything on the mask in black will be printed in the spot color. For foils, print a couple of layers of black ink before you print the foil to get a very good effect. Remember to check the overlay option so the paper doesn't get ejected.

What can we do about dark toner spots that are appearing on the right side of documents we print? We have tried using a can of air spray to clean the inside of the printer, but to no avail.


I have a Brother HL 4040cn color laser printer and I had the same problem. On every page I printed there were these black dots that appeared down the right side of the page in regular intervals. I tried the automatic drum cleaner and that didn't work. I opened the printer from door, removed the black toner cartridge and looked at the drum. Sure enough there was a speck of black crusted toner stuck to the drum. I used a q-tip and lightly scrubbed at the spot to remove the toner then I used the gear on the left side of the drum to rotate it and check for any other smudges and there were none. Put the toner cartridge back in and it was good to go again...no black dots!!

Hope this helps someone because I couldn't find the solution myself when I searched.

White ink printing with alps MD 5000


To print white, you need to use the spot color option in the printer properties. The object to be printed must be all black. It seems counter to what you might think, but the spot color mode will print the solid black areas as the selected spot color.

BLACK LINE ALONG RIGHT SIDE OF LETTER SIZE PAPER


Is this and Okidata C5100? And is the stripe vertical up and down on the page? I'm going to assume yes to both of those for the sake of trying to help. Worse case is the fuser unit in the machine is wearing in one spot and thats why the streak is appearing. Also, many color printers require a seperate drum unit or photo conductor unit. These could have a wear spot on them as well. They can fail long befor the change drum light appears. Other than that remove and inspect the black cartridge. If there is a shutter on it, pull back and inspect the two inner rollers. You're looking for any wear spots in a location that corresponds to the streaks on the paper...or an excessive amount of toner leaking from one spot on it. Hope this helps!!
