Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer

2 Answers

Toner Doesn't adhere to page. Started out with vertical lines.

Printer started leaving vertical lines when printing or copying. Then it started leaving toner. Finally, the whole page is full of lines and spots.

I replaced the toner cartrige. Didn't help.

When I scan it is fine. The toner collects on the green roller.

Any suggestions. Thanks

Sounds like the fuser unit is either not pressing hard enough onto the page or notgetting hot enough to adhere the toner to the page.

Feel if the fuser is hot or has something stuck in it like a sheet of paper wrapped round the roller. If it is not hot then it needs replaced.

HP m410n laserjet pro banding gray vertical lines


the two places to look is transfer roller and the fuser unnit.
i think there is a problem with the transfer roller it is under the toner and it needs to be spring loaded. The paper passes between the toner an the transfer roller to charge the paper en let the toner stick to the paper and if it doesn't make correct contact then it wont work

Prints a line in a page


if that line is horizontal and repeat itself on the page then the problem should be from the Drum of Toner.(should be fixed if you replace Toner)

if it is vertical line all over the page then it ia allmost the fuser film (torn vertically) and if so you should send the printer to a specialized technician

HP Laserjet 3330 printed dark page especially around the middle


Does this happen both when copying and printing?
For printing solution, try another toner cartridge.
If lines continue to appear when copying (primarily through the automatic feeder) then lift the auto feeder, and clean the glass -mainly the narrow piece on the left side.

please rate solution :)

HP Laserjet IIIP starting printing thin vertical black line


Was this happening before you swapped toner?
Is there toner streaks on the drum? Yes? Defective.
What if you stop the printer (open cover) as it passes through the fuser to determine if image is from drum or fuser?
But really....isn't it time to move on anyway???

Vertical lines when it prints, etc.


Vertical print problems are going to mean a drum replacement on that model. You can try to pull out the drum unit and carefully, with a lint free cloth, try spinning the drum and cleaning it off, but more than likely the coating on the drum has worn off where the vertical defect is. New part # dr-250 for that machine model..

Lanier 5622 Prints vertical lines


You could remove the color and black&white drum units and check from below the units to visually observe lines on all the 4 drums. If so, you have to change the drum unit/units. Drums occassionally get damaged before life this way due to solid toner particles inside the toner bottle.Always "shake the toners very well" before replacement, and if you print rarely, then remove the toners and do the shaking to prevent clogging due to inactivity.

Consistent, faded and streaking vertical lines across entire page, from top to bottom.


Toner issue getting to drum - use gen toner cart.

or Drum blade stuffed (lines are down page fro top to bottom- replace drum assy

Drum has been exposed to light faint or blank across copies repeated 4 times down page - replace drum assy

or upper fuser roller stuffed, down page, smudgy print -  replace fuser

LSU(laser) or boards rarely cause issues
