Hey there

these are just some tips:

COPIERS - MOST COMMON PROBLEMS
A) Black Marks Or Spots On Page (Always Same Place)
Clean the glass on the machine
Change the lightness/darkness setting - some copiers have 2 different density controls - does yours?

B) White Streaks Or Voids
Dirty transfer wire or mirror - instructions on how to clean these should be in your user manual - takes only seconds to clean.
Damp Paper - Try a new **** of paper.
Did you forget to pull out the sealing tape in your new toner?

C) Black Smudges / Vertical Or Horizontal, Also Ghosting
Look at the fusing assembly - does either roller look dirty or possibly torn?
When you buy your toner, do you get a cleaning wand with it? Do you install it? Failure to install a new wand when you change the toner could lead to premature wear of the fusing assembly.

D) Black Lines
Do you have a document feeder? Clean the thin glass next to the larger glass. This is the glass your paper passes when using the document feeder.
Drum unit, drum blade or fuser roller could be worn. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THESE YOURSELF! Contact your service company.

E) Gray Background
Developer may need to be changed. Contact your service company.
Is exposure setting too dark?
Optics may be dirty. Contact your service company.

Vertical Lines If sharp black vertical streaks appear on the page, the photosensitive drum inside the toner cartridge has probably been scratched. Replace the toner cartridge.


If smeared black vertical streaks appear, the fuser may be bad. Inspect the rollers for scratches and escessive wear, and, if necessary, replace the fusing assembly as described in 'User-Replaceable Parts' in Chapter 7.

    Your printer requires minimum routine maintenance. This chapter
    explains the following tasks



    • Cleaning the printer


    • The toner cartridge


    • Extending toner cartridge life


    • Clearing a TONER LOW message


    • Replacing printer parts




    Cleaning the printer


    To maintain print quality, thoroughly clean your printer:



    • Every time you change the toner cartridge


    • After printing approximately 6,000 pages


    • Whenever print quality problems occur

    Clean the outside of the printer with a lightly water-dampened
    cloth. Clean the inside with only a dry,lint-free cloth.
    Observe the warnings and cautions that follow the cleaning tasks
    on the following pages.


    Caution

    To avoid permanent damage to the toner cartridge, do not use
    ammonia-based cleaners on or around your printer.

    Before you begin these steps, turn the printer OFF and unplug
    the power cord.

    cause print quality problems.

    and wash your clothes in cold water. Hot water
    sets toner into fabric.

    1. OPen the printer's top cover and remove the toner
      cartridge


    2. with a dry lint-free cloth, wipe any residue
      off the Paper Access Cover (it has a green handle) and
      the adjacent silver metal strip.


    3. Wipe any dust or dirt off the black plastic Paper Feed
      Guide with a dry, lint-free cloth.

You need to replace verical convergence ICs.
Usually you fix the convergence problem on AV-65WP74 replacing theconvergence Ics, then do an convergence realign setup. You need to desolder and take the chips out and put a new pair in and soldered them back. their cost vary fron $7 to $40. Labour may be expensive.

    Sorry , I posted here the answer for a different problem I was solving, disregard my previous post, was ment for a different problem on a different device.

    In your case you have a problem with one toner spreading toner dust.
    First thing to do is a complete professional cleanup inside the printer, disassembling the printer body and cleaning it with a small hoover. Never blow it with a compressor always hoover it.

    If it did not disappear changing toners and drums, and doing a professional cleanup, then the axel rotating the toners may be bent and spread toner when it rotates the color.

Hp 2500l prints a dark line horizontal down each page. Can we clean drum at home?


A dark line on the hp 2500 series can come from the drum You can't clean it at home), it can come from a toner cartridge, from the fuser unit and from the optics.
Step one - check if the line in all colors, run copy quality check through Menu and diagnostics, if the line is only on one color your problem is the toner cartridge.
Step two - if the line is on all colors, take the drum unit out and look at the drum, if you see the line on the drum you need to replace the drum unit.
Step three - stop a print in during the printing process by turning the printer off, take out the drum and look at the printed paper under the drum, if the printed page is clear of line your problem is in the fuser.
Good luck.

Black lines when printing brother 9320cw


Vertical black lines means the printer requires maintenance or a new drum. Horizontal lines means a circuit board with problems.

I do recommend maintenance every 6 months at least.

Vertical lines printing on one side of the page


9 times out of 10 this is coming from one of the two drum (photoconductor) units. Just open the right side door, release the waste toner box, and remove the 2 drum units. The larger one is the color drum unit and the smaller one is the black. Look down thru the slot in the top of the unit (3 slots in the color drum) and look at the green colored drum surface. On one end or the other you should be able to see the same lines on the drum surface that you are seeing on the paper. One of the 2 drum units should have the lines and that will tell you which one will need to be replaced. Hopefully it will be the black drum unit as they are relatively cheap. The color ones are $350 to $400
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

The printer is printing dark vertical line on the


90% or more of the time on this printer dark lines are coming from your toner/drum cartridge. You can verify this by changing cartridges if you have a spare. If you don't then remove the cartridge and look at the colored cylinder in the cartridge and see if the same "lines" are on the cylinder that are on your prints. This will tell you for sure that the cartridge is bad.

Vertical lines printed on right side of every page


Would be helpful to know the brand and model of the printer. Sometimes this is caused by not returning the slide used to clean the primary corona wire to its original position (usually to the extreme left side of the toner cartridge) after cleaning the corona wire. If you haven't cleaned the corona wire, you should follow instructions and do that first.

Hp 4550 vertical line down center of page


From the service manual:


Vertical lines or streaks
 Check for a leak where light might be entering the printer.
 Check for circumferential scars on the photosensitive drum. If scars are present, replace the
drum cartridge if the line goes through all colors.
 Check for circumferential scars on the upper fusing roller. If scars are present, replace the upper
fusing roller if the line goes through all colors.
 Remove the imaging drum and inspect main charger or imaging drum for a contaminant, such as
a fiber, if the line goes through all colors.
CAUTION Do not expose the imaging drum to light for more than 15 seconds. The drum is light sensitive, and
exposure to light can cause permanent damage.
Vertical black lines
 The toner cartridge is defective.
 The toner cartridge is not seated properly.
 The fuser entrance is dirty.
 The fuser has scratches on it.
 This might be a repetitive defect. If so, the lines will repeat at a consistent interval down the page.
 The printer needs to be cleaned.
 There is a problem in the heating element.
Vertical white lines
 If white lines or streaks appear only in the black areas of the printed media, print several
configuration pages to clear the anomaly. If this does not clear the problem, check the sleeve
surface to confirm the defect, then replace the black toner cartridge.
 If white lines appear only in a particular color, try printing several configuration pages to clear the
error. If the error does not clear, check the sleeve surface to confirm the defect, then replace the
defective toner cartridge.
 There is a lack of toner or the toner cartridge is faulty.
 There is dirt in the laser path.
 The fuser is defective.
 A mirror in the laser scanner is dirty.

Lanier 5622 Prints vertical lines


You could remove the color and black&white drum units and check from below the units to visually observe lines on all the 4 drums. If so, you have to change the drum unit/units. Drums occassionally get damaged before life this way due to solid toner particles inside the toner bottle.Always "shake the toners very well" before replacement, and if you print rarely, then remove the toners and do the shaking to prevent clogging due to inactivity.
