How do I fix blurred printing. Is it the drum?

My CLP- 550 is acting up since about a month ago. There is a section of any page that will get printed blurred and fuzzy.

How do i fix that?

Thanks in advance for your help!

    I think it is the Fuser issue. I had tried already with different quality of paper and the problem had remained. I will have to get in touch with the manufacturer for support,

    Thanks again

This could be as simple as a static in your paper issue or it could be a problem toner or could be a problem with the fuser, to eliminate these 1 by 1 start with the paper by taking a sponge and wiping down a piece of paper( dont make the paper sopping wet you just need to put some moisture in it) then run a job with this piece of paper and see if the quality came back, if it's good then you have a static issue with the paper and you need to use differant paper. If you need to test further, run another job like you normally would but try and stop the machine by opening it up before the paper reaches the fuser but after it has print on it from the toner cartridge, carefully remove the paper as the toner will not be melted into the paper yet and check to see if the quality issue exists on this print, if it does then it will be a toner issue and if not, your probably looking at a fuser issue which will need to be replaced... if this helps, please leave the fixya feedback...

Samsung clp 315 printing shadow images

Ghosting appears often because of bad toner. If cartridges have been refilled, they have wrong toner in them. If drum has worn out it will usually tell you. All parts for this machine cost too much. If toner is not the problem, probably best to get a new machine rather than pay to get it fixed. Brothers are cheaper to run.

This is a serious problem. You should go to a service center. Before you do that you may check if power reaches to printer by opening the power inlet and using a 220/110V tester. But this is very risky. You should contact a technician.

Unplug the printer.

Uninstall all of your printer software. Reinstall it as if it where a new printer. Under printers select your model as the default printer.

Print a test page.

Chances are that you have the same problem as found here. I am guessing that the toner waste container needs to be emptied (you can do it your self) and/or the sensor is acting up.
