Graphics printing smeared

My printer prints text just fine. Graphics, however, is a different story. It will start out printing fine and then it looks like it has gotten off track somehow and starts to slide to the side and smear the picture.

Toner smears on all print outs. Looking for what part to replace.


Do you mean when the print comes out the toner smears on the paper when you touch it? If so, then it's the fuser that isn't working properly.
However, if you mean when the print comes out there is smeared toner in various places on your print, but the smears are fixed to the paper, then the cause is more complicated and could be caused by a number of different problems within the printer.

I think you need to do is reinstall you software driver for the print program and start with known parameters. Then you can try to clean the heads. You should get something out of the printer if the heads are plugged it might be a dot or smear on the paper.

Have you tried printing text in different colour if that works the black jets are blocked- try running the cleaning cycle to clear (it may not use black ink in graphics)

Streaks & Smears after changing toner cartridge.


Remove all of your toners and clean them off. Replace each one and make sure they are well setted in the unit before going to the next one. Make sure the carosel turns smoothly and nothing is hanging up on the sides. Reboot the whole printer and let it settle for 5 mins before printing. toners come lose sometimes when you turn carosel around. Hope this helps you these printers are a ***** to deal with ,but when they are right there great.

The dont know how to switch the ink cartages


The large black ink cartridge is used for printing text and other general black printing. The small black cartridge is used when printing graphics and other fine details. Each cartridge feeds to a different part of the print head, which is used for different purposes.

Problem printing in color on Xerox Phaser 8200 from Mac


That actually should make magazine quality color.
What are you experiencing? Do the colors not match? Are there smears or light streaks?
I will gladly work with you to revolve your problem, I just need a frame of reference to start.
Let me know.
You may simply need to download and install a different driver.
They are on www.xerox.com you should be running the PS version of a driver for better graphics.
