Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
IT COPIES FINE BUT 2 OUT OF 3 COPIES ARE SMEARED ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PAGE...WHAT COULD IT BE?
Smeared output can also
result when you refeed a printed page into the
printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the
rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick
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.
