Question about Samsung CLP-500 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printer help Printer is duplicating words, phrases etc.. on same page. I don't know what is causing it. I have tried cleaning the drum as-well-as the feeders. Drum only has 8400 copies on it. Thing is that it doesn't do it with all the words... and it doesn't do it over the whole sheet. Seems random. Please help me... trying to do post cards for my new business and everything seems to keep going wrong.

if the patches are random, and not ghost images duplicating down the page, you may need to take out the toner and gently shake it - tilt it right 90 degrees, then left 90 degrees, etc a few times to redistribute the toner...
failing that, the toner could be almost empty.
otherwise, check and see if they are duplicating down the page.. ie the same image defect 3 or 4 times down the page, if so, it is probably one of the drums.. toner or fuser drum...

Hope this info helps.

Black line down the middle of the page when printing anything. i have tired cleaning the head several times. it is so annoying. can you please help???? thanks

You did not say what kind of printer. Laser printers-- Look at the innards (Toner, image drum, fuser,etc) for something in the same location on the various parts. This is kind of general, but the cause is often obvious. Printers can also have this problem if memory locations have failed, or, in the case of some laser printers, the laser unit is malfunctioning.

Ink Jet printers. Usually caused by something in the paper path after the print head, or the print head. Cleaning the surface of the print head with a lint free damp towel may cure the problem. Duplex printers can get crud in the duplex assembly that will cause this symptom.

In other words, it's most likely a hardware related problem, not software

Duplicated print on page

The cleaner of the image drum is not working.

This can consist of ekectrostatic discharge wires OR more likely ios INCOMPLETE transfer of toner due to defect in the charge wires that cause the toner to transfer from the drum to the paper.

Inspect the wires for contamination and use a Qtip to CAREFULLY clean both the very fine wire and the metal channel it is in. Checking the voltage on this wire is beyond what the DIY person can do.

I am getting a light duplication on my copies half

The duplication problem can be either the drum or the fuser. Most likely your drum needs to be replaced. If you can measure the distance between the first print and its duplicate I might be able to help more.

thanks adi

Duplicating the top page text at lower page region- Duplicating

Needs a good clean. The fuser isn't completely setting the text so it's sticking to the roller and coming back round on the paper further down.

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.

Printer smudging caused by self-sealing envelope glue on drum

Drums are not hot, you can try to clean them, are they smudgy? More likely the glue came off when it hit the hot section check this area, be carefull not to scratch anything.
