My laser printer suddenly stopped printing data. the paper runs through the printer and comes out looking like a dirty white sheet.
there are no warning lights on the unit. on turning on the printer seems to go through standard startup procedure and indicates ready. When I send any data to the printer I get dirty white sheet. When I press the printer test all I get is a dirty white sheet. I have replaced the toner cart even though the light does not indicate toner is low. I have not tried to change the drum since it does not indicate drum is bad and drums cost too much. Seems to me that data is not getting to the system somehow. All systems for handling the paper seem to work properly.
A white indicates that no information is being written on the drum. Another white page fault can be when the corona wire becomes broken, contamiinated, or corroded. That makes the attracted charge between the drum and paper is severely reduced.You might have to replace the module containingn the corona wires. Hope this helps a little.

so it does print and exit one page before it jams? if so you have something wrong with the exit sensor. if it does not feed it all the way thru it might not be feeding paper in to the machine fast enough. the feed tires might be dirty.
Hello sir;Try to print one page, when the paper process half way then stop the machine, remove the cartridge, check the paper is wrinkling, if yes ,that's meanspaper feed roller dirty or registration roller slipply, ortherwise, check the fusing unit, need to replace presure roller. The 2nd issue, you need to replace paper stop roller or rubber pad.
9 out of 10 times this is caused by dirty contacts. It can also be caused by some electrical charge getting to the paper as it goes through the printer or a faulty (weak) power supply board. Your first check should be to remove all of the consumables and clean all metal contacts with an alcohol wipe or similar. Hope this helps.

this sounds like a bad black ink cart, or the fuser rolls built into the printer are dirty.
you can swap out a black cart to test that theory, you can also just print a single blank page (no text or graphics) onto a piece of glossy paper and see if there is anything there after its gone thru the printer.
if the piece of paper has stuff on it it had to come from the rollers inside the printer.
service required,unless your comfortable changing out parts in your printer.
