The pages have a very dark background and it is in the pattern of wide stripes


Open rear cover and check gray plastic film not torn or broken. If film broken printer requires the fuser replaced. This is not a user replaceable item as its quite a tear down to reach the fuser.

Image defects may also be caused by toner cartridge. Check toner cartridge for background issues. To do this print the printer's demo page and open door when paper is half in the printer. Remove the paper jam and check unfused image for defects. If defects occurs then replace toner.

Savin 2545 document feeder gives a gray band on the copies


Yes - surprisingly - we had the same problem, the gray stripe along the side of the page only showed up when the original was fed through the document feeder on top. Cleaned the small area of glass under the feeder repeatedly with no change to the resulting stripe, but then while cleaning the upper roller, above the area of glass where the scan lamp illuminates during the copying from the ADF, we found a small piece of paper adhering to the top roller in the paper path, cleaned it off, and no more band. We didn't see the bit of paper on the upper roller until we rolled it while cleaning. Still can't figure how that made a stripe....but hope this helps you.

How do I clean the drum on the Brother MFC-8440


It should be constantly cleaned by it's cleaning blade with every revolution. If that's not making continuous contact inside the drum unit, then it's time to replace the drum. The symptom to look for is not just a gray background, but images that repeat about 3 inches down the page as the drum rolls around to that point again.
If the background is gray without noticeable repeating image, it may be a defective toner cartridge. We've wasted a fair amount of money replacing Brother drums when it turned out to be the much cheaper toner cartridge. If it's a new cartridge, take it back to the store along with before and after print samples.

Problem with phaser


Phaser 2135 Printer: Resolving dirty looking background or gray haze

Description: Tiny speckles of toner scattered all over the page, even in areas of the page that should be blank.
  1. Make sure the media being used is supported by the Phaser 2135 printer.
  2. Inspect imaging drums for any signs of leakage or excess toner that could be falling onto the print as it travels though the printer. Any leaking imaging drums should be replaced.
  3. Verify environmental conditions. See article Dealing with humidity, humidifiers. If the environmental conditions are not within the specified range, the printer should be moved before trying to troubleshoot the cause to the background toner.
  4. Determine if any of the imaging drums were exposed to light for an extended period of time (more than 10 minutes). If so, then Replace the imaging drum. (Xerox is not responsible for any imaging drums that have been damaged by over exposure to light.)
Additional Recommendations:
Background toner may increase, if printing occurs at temperatures towards the higher end of the specified operating temperature range. For this reason, it is recommended that the printer be moved to another area if at all possible.
In addition, very smooth media types such as glossy; allow toner to more easily scatter about the page prior to becoming fused. Try using a less smooth media if at all possible.
