If you can rub the toner off the paper it is the fuser.

fuser, the part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the
medium. It consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner
is transferred to the paper, the fuser applies heat and pressure to
ensure that the toner stays on the paper permanently. This is why
paper is warm when it comes out of a laser printer.

For toner problem:

Do a half test as follows -
Print one sheet from the fold down tray, just as the trailing edge of the paper
goes into the printer open the toner door to stop the printer. Remove the toner
cartridge, are the marks on the paper that you can see in the printer? If they
are there the cartridge needs replacing.

How do i stop my printer from leaving ink streaks down the right side of my pages?


I was going to suggest removing the fuser and looking at the rollers, but on this printer it's a major operation.
Instead let's run the half test. Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). Print to the printer. When the sheet of paper gets pulled about 3/4 of the way in, open the top cover. Pull out the toner cartridge. Look down at the paper. Does it have a streak down the right side? If yes, replace the toner, if no, have the fuser replaced.

Grey streak down the right side of the page 1/4 inch wide


Yip, its fuser film alright. You could pick up a fuser unit / kit from:

and fix it yourself using the manual in this post:

Black streaks on the sides


If this is a laser printer you need to send a 1 page print job and when the page is under the toner cartridge and a little into the fuser open the top. look at the page and determine if the defect is coming from your toner cartridge of the fuser. you should also see the defect on the drum or on the fuser.

Lexmark t520 suddenly prints poor quality, i.e. the previous page prints softly onto the next page and the right side of the page (2" from right) is streaked with toner. Please help. TIA, Mike


this sounds like you have a fuser problem look at the fuser and see if it has toner build up on the rollers ghost printing can be caused by the toner cartridge or the fuser. this would indicate that your fuser isnt maintaining enough heat for complete fusing. is you take the rear covers off and run your print job. look to the far left side of the fuser and you will see the heat lamp lit up. this light should cycle on every 1 1/2 pages or so. any longer than that and it wont keep up with the print job

When printing, I see a vertical streak on the printed page, from top to bottom, about 2 1/4 inches from the left side of the paper, and about 1/16 of an inch wide. I can't seem to see what causes this. The...


This is more than likely down to the upper roller in the fuser assembly. It's the heat roller at the back of the printer. The upper roller wears so paper dust and toner stick to the roller which then can get deposited back on to the page.

Printing vertical grayish black ink on the left and right side of page


replace the toner cartridge, you wont have anything "dripping" out of it as the toner inside is a powder. if it still appears replace the fuser.

Black Streaks


The Black Lines are not due to to toner problem.
The Black lines ate same at the Page Location . If so the Problem may be with Drum Or Charging Unit Or fuser assembly. If the same problem continues Please take out and see the drum do not toch it . (Please Power off the Printer and disconnect all the cables. )

Two dots on right side of page


if you replaced the cartridge and the streaks are still there then it's the fuser. you can try to clean the "fuser" roller with a little alcohol and your finger nail (after it's cooled down) to scratch off the toner, if it's an actual scratch on the roller you need to replace the fuser as it will pickup toner again and leave marks.

hope this helps
thanks for rating

This can be one of two

Print cartridge (you can do it, replace toner cartridge)

or Fuser (needs to go to doctors)

stop a print half way threw to confirm that it is print cartridge, good chance it is.
