My ViewSonic PJD6221 Projector shows scattered white dots on the screen


Your dlp chip is going bad and cannot be fixed economically. Several of the mirrors on the chip are hanging up and they won't come back. It will just get worse. My Sharp XR32X is doing the same thing. New projector time.

Hi, I have HP LaserJet 1020 and few days ago three tiny black dots appeared on the left side of the printed pages, just by the border. The borders apper at regular intervals. I found somewhere that it...


dots printed are from the cartridge, you proved that with the change to the old one. If the fuser was faulty, it would repeat the dot 2.5 times down an 8.5 x 11 page
Replace the cartridge and please use HP , remanufactured cartridges fail prematurley and usually wind up costnig more in service and repair/exchanges.

Black dots printing on left side of paper


dots are usually always caused by the drum..drums are very easy to replace..(you don't even need a screwdriver)
here's how..
remove the unit that the toner sits into..it's called a process unit..comes out as a whole with the toners...
next open left cover..
remove waste toner bottle. (drum sits right above it!!!
next remove drum by pushing on grey button and pulling drum
out the left side of the printer.

as far as the jam message you might need to replace tray feed tires located up under the machine

It prints three dots on the left side of the page every time.


These dots may be called as "Garbage Valley"
This means ur printer has got lots to print but it was stopped due to certain reason.
I'll ask u to go through ur printer manual & print atleast 5 pages of garbage valley & while u do this, i'll ask u to reinstall ur printer driver.
Hope it works out.
Thanks

Ink dots on right side of paper


Toner cartridge? So this is a laser printer? In that case I suspect it is not new? This sounds like old age on the main image drum, that will probably give the exact same mark on each page, correct?

Rimage Everest III printing quality issues


Hi Jay, do you have any idea how many discs have been printed with this Everest Printer?

Your issue sounds like a hardware error, not an issue with the software you are printing from. Most likely the printhead needs to be replaced, or the control board. Printhead replacement costs approx $1200.

Problem with phaser


Phaser 2135 Printer: Resolving dirty looking background or gray haze

Description: Tiny speckles of toner scattered all over the page, even in areas of the page that should be blank.
  1. Make sure the media being used is supported by the Phaser 2135 printer.
  2. Inspect imaging drums for any signs of leakage or excess toner that could be falling onto the print as it travels though the printer. Any leaking imaging drums should be replaced.
  3. Verify environmental conditions. See article Dealing with humidity, humidifiers. If the environmental conditions are not within the specified range, the printer should be moved before trying to troubleshoot the cause to the background toner.
  4. Determine if any of the imaging drums were exposed to light for an extended period of time (more than 10 minutes). If so, then Replace the imaging drum. (Xerox is not responsible for any imaging drums that have been damaged by over exposure to light.)
Additional Recommendations:
Background toner may increase, if printing occurs at temperatures towards the higher end of the specified operating temperature range. For this reason, it is recommended that the printer be moved to another area if at all possible.
In addition, very smooth media types such as glossy; allow toner to more easily scatter about the page prior to becoming fused. Try using a less smooth media if at all possible.
