Hello, you might want to do a half test, i will explain, when the printer starts printing, open the front cover after paper has started to pick up and has gone halfway into machine, pull toner cartridge out, and check print, if the black spots are there, then the problem is toner, if not then it would be fuser.

Black spots on each page


A laser printer has its rollers (which I believe you said you cleaned...very important) and the cartridge you put in the printer has rollers too! Carefully check them and the wiper on the cartridge. If all of those things are clean, then you should get clean copy!

Our printer leaves black spots/blotches all over everything we print. Ive changed the cartrdige and attempted to clean out the printer and these black spots will not go away, what should I do?


I think you'll also have to clean the fuserunit. This is the hot part at the back of the machine. Take of the back covers and you can take it out to clean it.

BLACK LINE ALONG RIGHT SIDE OF LETTER SIZE PAPER


Is this and Okidata C5100? And is the stripe vertical up and down on the page? I'm going to assume yes to both of those for the sake of trying to help. Worse case is the fuser unit in the machine is wearing in one spot and thats why the streak is appearing. Also, many color printers require a seperate drum unit or photo conductor unit. These could have a wear spot on them as well. They can fail long befor the change drum light appears. Other than that remove and inspect the black cartridge. If there is a shutter on it, pull back and inspect the two inner rollers. You're looking for any wear spots in a location that corresponds to the streaks on the paper...or an excessive amount of toner leaking from one spot on it. Hope this helps!!

Spots on paper


Look on the image drum (bottom of toner cartridge) are there spots on that?? if so clean carefully so as not to damage it or replace the cartridge. If this is not the case open the cartridge door during a print, but before the paper fully enters the fuser and check if the spots are already there, if not the fuser is causing the problems.

Black ink not printing


Fix ink cartridge
I had same problem. I must have ran the clean cycle more than 30-50 times over a period of days. That never made any difference. I was about to toss the whole thing but figured I would try one more thing. If it didn't work I would be in no worse shape. Here is what I did.
Took an almost empty black cartridge and inject a lot of 100% Acetone to dilute ink. Left some black in it since I didn't want to think it was empty. Inserted this cartridge and ran the cleaning a few time. IT WORKED. I used my word processor program and filled a page with large bold font characters and printed a page or two. Each page cleared more nozzles. After doing this cleaning/printing a number of time, I put in the full good cartridge. Ran the cleaning a few time to eject any of the Acetone diluted ink. Ran the printed page a few time to remove more of the diluted ink.
Everything seems to work now.
