Are you using plain 20lb paper? If you are using anything thicker or heavier than plain paper then you must use the bypass feed and tell the machine you are using cardstock, thick paper etc. I have the same machine and have had the same issue when printing labels. Works perfectly if you tell the machine what paper you are printing onto.
Now if this is not the case then you might have an issue with the fusing unit.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Prints blotches and marks down the left edge


Hi
That sounds like classic wear and tear issues. All those rollers and gears have very close tolerances and any variation out of the rang and the paper grabing and jamming starts. And that could be cause of the toner leaking. You must have a lot of miles on that ol girl and you got your moneys worth out of her. They dont make them like that anymore and I dont think you could find the parts even though that was back when they supplied parts. I asked an engineer once "couldn't they make that one gear out of metal like the rest of them?" He replied "well sure, but there wouldn't be any money in that..." You beat the system on that one. Time to start your research on a replacement I'm afraid.

HI, I have a NEC monitor 1760nx, dark blotches on the screen


Listen, for what it is going to cost you to fix the unit, you are better off replacing it and having a new warranty to boot. Simply not cost effective to repair given the cost of a new monitor these days.

The printed pages have pink blotches on the right hand side of the paper and horizontal pink blotches down the page


Try cleaning the color or magenta cartridge with rubbing alcohol and look inside the printer to see if there's pooled ink anywhere that is smearing on the paper. Try replacing the print head or cartridge.

Print issues


Look at the fuser, and see if you can see a bad area on the fuser roller, matching the position on the paper. I suspect a bad fuser. Fusers need to be replaced periodically, and typically via a maint kit which replaces several feed rollers as well.. How many pages have been printed.. Print a config sheet to display this information.
