Use ony GENUINE HP ink cartidges.

Look inside to make sure there are no scraps of paper that the paper is scraping against on the way out.

RICOH 1224C COPIES ARE SMEARED


Smeared output can also result when you refeed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

If this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; if not, the thermostat is bad and you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

Just replaced toner - now it prints so dark I can't even read the fax


Most common cause is a dirty corona wire and or drum. If after cleaning the corona wire and drum the copies are still mostly black and smeared, the drum may be broken.

When I get or receive faxes, the right side is blurred.


If your getting blurred copies you may have moisture on your drum. Try cleaning it with alcohol(only) . If the problem persist replace drum.

Faxes are hard to read - they're smeared with ink all over.


Sounds like a fuser issue. Check the owner's manual to see if this device has a fuser. If so, try replacing it. If not, next step may be the drum.

Straight line comes up when i make a copy or fax to some one


if your received faxes look good and this only happens when you fax someone or make a copy, lift up your document feeder and you will see a glass under it that is about an 1.5" wid and runs left to right. something is on that glass. perhaps whiteout or something like that. clean that off good and you should be fine. if it doesn't take care of problem, write back.

Cant print


Hi talodyis,
Some how someone has created, (Copy2). (It shouldn't be there at all nor a Copy1).
Only an icon of the HP PCS 1110 series & HP PCS 1110 Fax.
Let's try the easy way to fix this first!
Left click the Start button once & slide up to & left click once on Printers and Faxes.
Printers and Faxes window will open. Find Copy2 & right click on it once, slide to & left click Delete. (Copy 2 should go away)!
You still have an listing of an HP 1110 here in Printers and Faxes window.
Find the HP 1110 series printer from the list, right click on it once & from within the pop-up window left click, Set as "Default Printer". That should do it. Play it safe & restart the system.

Good luck!
Mike

Printing


It sounds like the toner is getting low. Take out the toner cartridge and rock it back and forth a few times to redistribute the toner evenly in the cartridge. If this makes the printouts look better, you should order another cartridge, as this one is getting low. I'm not sure about the L-100, but the toner cartridge for the L-120 fax is good for about 2,000 copies.

Light print of incoming faxes, cannot read


are copies light too? if not then it is sending fax, but most times it is inferior ink or drum causing the problem sometimes damp paper (try printing on reverse side as well)

BLACK INK LINES ON INCOMING FAXES KX-FL511


It's time to change NEW DRUM UNIT..and that's why your Toner will Not Last Longer because unnecessary toner (the black lines) will be on the copy every time the fax comes or you make a copy.
