Perhaps the Drum that is responsible for creating images in laser printer.
If its light sensitive area is damaged, it can create such effects. You should check the drum of your laser printer

    Mostly it is due to the DRUM damge , and so if you buy and place a new toner catridge the smudges should go off,

    But if after checking the drum and found to have no problems, then check the fuser, (FUSER) THese are the only two possibilities for your problem.!

    Thank you

    See this link

    But i would rather advice you to take it to the technician for fuser change.

    asuming that the other checks of rollers and drums was done correctly

How do I fix my Samsung Multi-function laser printer which has started to print smudged pages.


try to stop the sheet just before it enters the fuser and see if the marks are on the paper already. if not then it has to be the fuser if they are them you have another issue.

Black lines or smudge marks\running down the prints


Hello sir;The streak line from printing also should be from copy, because the line come from imaging unit, check the meter count if close to or over 50,000 then replace drum and drum blade, it will take care the problem.
The brother printer you need to replace imaging unit( drum unit).

I have smudges that appear horizontially in a repeating patter


Hi fpugliese630:

1. Remove the paper tray and look inside the printer on the upper part and you see two rubber feed rollers, (they should be a white color) if they have toner on them that could be one of you problems,you would have to clean or replace them if they are worn.

2. you can run whats called a half test, print any document and while the document is printing open the front cover when you think that the paper is under the toner cartridge so the printer will stop. look at the printed page to see if the mark is there. If the mark is not there than you have a problem with the fuser assemble.

Note*
Make sure that the paper path is clean.

HP J5780 Problem-Line on printed pages


most likely you have a flat spot on the roller.
that is exactly what is going to happen, when the paper hits the flat spot or a low spot. the paper stops and skips. them the print is coming out smeared.
you can get a repair kit or replacement roller from HP.

Faint grey lines Every 1/3rd of a printed page


This is the test to determine toner or fuser issue.
Print a test page
When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top to stop the machine
Remove the toner cart.
You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser)
If you can see the smudge or marks on the page the problem is most likely the cartridge or cleaning roller but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.

How Brave is Jan?

Doubt it be the fuser(100 000life), "just magenta dots".... fuser would be "all smudged" or "black marks" , "the print rubs off" , "paper is creasing or jamming"

Can prove it by stopping a print (open door) when paper is1/2 way threw machine, you need to stop it before it goes threw the hot bit, so you can tell if the hot bit (fuser) puts the marks on the paper.

Transfer roller one would expect to effect whole print Smudged/Faint,uneven density

It will be the imaging unit ( 30 000 pagelife Ouch$ ) or possible leaking toner (if aftermarket)

Remove imaging unit and inspect film you should find image of lines, dots are usually chips or sticky stuff on drum surface, carefull no oily human fingers on surface please.

When stopping machine mid print and perfecting your timing, pull out the imaging unit and look at replica of your print notice if marked and where.

Hope this helps
