Faint line when printing a letter


hi this may be the toner roller or supply drum for the toner cartridge . if it scratched or worn it leaves marks on the drum or the roller, which in turn fills with toner and leaves an imprint on the page, you can check these , just remove the toner cartridge and look at the green roller and also look at the black roller, it might be a simple case of changing it or cleaning it....hope this helps

When printing the sheet of paper has 3 dots on the


Yes this could be the drum.

You could remove the drum and carefully look for the pattern of dots etc that you are getting on the page but on the drum surface.

I would suggest replacing the drum 1st and retrying.

If the black lines are just down one edge then the fuser could be to blame for the black marks but without being able to see the page i cant tell. The drum is certainly my 1st suspect and is easy for you to try.

Hi Phillip,
If you have changed the drum and toner, then check the fuser unit. The teflon coating on fuser film could be worn.

Printing faint lines with fine corresponding creases on drum


You probably can not repair it. I will say this though, be careful to get the right labels for it.

Faded print on one side of page


I have a SCX-4100 Samsung, replaced the tonger cartridge, it was working fine for a few hundred sheets of printing, but after that, the left side of the page was printed very light, faded.
If I run the "Clean Drum", it will print a litter better, but still faded.
What can I do to correct this problem?
Thank you
