My HP 4100 printer prints with a black smudge clear down the page. I clean the roller but continues to print bad copies. Should I replace the cartridge?


Problem is either the cartridge or the fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1)
Print something. When the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the
top cover. Pull out the toner, look down at the paper.
If it has the smudge replace the toner. If no smudge, replace the fuser.

Black smudges down left side of page


How do I clean white or black spots on printed documents? Description: First make 10 to 15 copies of a blank, white sheet of paper.
If you still see the spots on printed documents after making multiple copies, clean the drum unit as follows:

  1. Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly, and then remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit.
  2. Position the print sample in front of the drum unit so you will know the exact position on the drum that is causing the poor print.
  3. all-ug-19.gif
  4. Turn the black gear on the drum as you check the surface of the OPC drum.
    The OPC drum is photosensitive so do not touch it with your fingers.
  5. all-ug-20.gif
  6. When you find the substance on the drum surface that matches the print sample, gently dab the surface of the OPC drum with a cotton swab that is lightly dampened with isopropyl alcohol.
  7. Note
      • Do not use a scrubbing or wiping motion because this might damage the drum.
        all-ug-21.gif
      • Do not try to clean the surface of the OPC drum with a sharp object, such as a ball-point pen, because this might cause permanent damage to the drum unit.
  8. If the print quality still has not improved you need to install a new drum.

My dcp165c printer print quality prints black & yellow colour. i clean print head through maintance 76 but problem cannot be solved


How is the printer printing black and yellow color? Is it a smudge?

When I print, the pages are smudged with ink. What should I do?
Description:
- If smudged stains appear at the top center of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not too thick or curled.
    Also, verify that the appropriate paper is being used and that the paper type set in the machine matches the media used.
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear at the right or left corner of the printed page:
  • Make sure the paper is not curled when you print on the back side of the paper with the Print Odd Pages and Print Even Pages settings.

- If smudged stains appear on the reverse side or at the bottom of the page:
NOTE: Illustrations shown below are from the representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.

Black marks and words on paper


Toner Black marks can only come from two places.

The toner cartridge or the fuser.
The best course of action would be to remove the fuser with the power off and line up a sheet with the problem with the fuser to see if possible to line up the mark and see if the fuser has a like defect in that position. I use inches but it is possible 79-80mm would be the edge of an envelope if you print them and I have seen instances where some envelopes over time cause a line on the fuser which then shows up on regular paper.

Hope this helps.

One more Method to sort out.

1. If a duplexer is installed, remove it. If a duplexer is not installed, remove the tray 2 dust cover from the rear of the printer by pulling from the bottom.

2 Remove the rear cover/rear output bin.

3. Rotate the two blue levers on the fuser assembly up to the unlocked position.

4 Pull the fuser assembly straight out of the printer.end chek de fuser.
5. When reinstalling the fuser assembly, be sure the blue levers are initially in the unlocked position.
6 Make sure the fuser assembly is seated fully before rotating the blue levers down into the locked
position.



Hope both informations will solve your problem.

Please have a regular maintenance agreement with local vendors for your printer to get serviced every month.

Best of Luck.

Samsung ML-2010 Mono Laser Printer leaves unwanted marks on page.


if older printer or well used printer (All laser printers if they have print quality issues - it is mostly either the toner or the fuser). the only way to tell is get (borrow) a toner and see if problem is the same or remove the fuser (the hot thing in the printer) and see if the "ironing" unit or fuser rollers are dirty or worn out or scratched

Printing Black Smudges


You could print a few more out and see if it goes away.

Check the drum and see if there are any black marks on it. If there is, it could be a scratched drum or the cleaning blade isn't working in it anymore.

Is this a new toner cartridge?

Be careful when you look at the drum at it to keep the light out of it as much as possible.

Where did it jam at?

Toner being deposited on back of page


point check

1.Hallo your rollers are dirty and smudged

2.Is your fuser unit O.k (clean)

3.is your paper good quality or are you using coated paper the wrong side? thereby staining the fuser unit (the hot part of the printer)

4. Most unlikely but have u ever turned your printer upside down??? or excess sideways tilt thereby releasing waste toner from the bottom of the printer to the roof then to your paper???

if all is nay then remove all toners and give your machine a gool blowout

Black mark on right side of paper


You either have some white out or some other dirt on the scanner or some sections of the scanner are bad. Open the area where your originals feed into, and look for about a 1/2 inch wide strip of glass, that is the scanner window. When that gets dirty, or fails, that causes the problem. Most likley dirty, some whiteout or ink on the scan window.

Minola print smudge


Pleas check the imagine unit drum, is it clean or does there are the same marks as in paper.
if yes, the IU drum cleaning or drum itself is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Try:
after sending a print job, when printer has take a paper from tray, open cover, open cover before the paper enter the fusing unit, then you can see, if the mark is allready in the paper then the problem is in the IU or toner cartridge, if not, then fusing unit rollers.
