Usually either a toner cartridge running out or damp paper.

Take the toner cartridge out and shake it side-to-side to loosen and redistribute the toner inside. If that fixes it, pat yourself on the back for now, but buy a spare cartridge right away.

Take a good look at your paper after printing. If it's severely curled, warped, lumpy, or creased, it may be because moisture in the paper is causing it to bend under the heat of the fuser inside the printer. The same moisture can keep toner from being attracted evenly to the paper. (Laser printers and copiers all rely on static electricity, and moisture dissipates a static charge quickly.)

Don't bother trying to dry damp paper; it will never be flat enough for a laser printer or copier again. Give to your kids for projects or something.

When printing reports off, all the document does not print to the right of the page. whats the answer to fixing this


Hi

Does print is faded or it prints clear? If faded, just get your cartridge and shake it well to distribute evenly the toner. If prints clear, preview it first before printing and maybe the other print area you want is not included when printing. Just set the print area.

Hp 4250 laser jet vertical streak ghost image


Hello,
The problem you are having is caused by the fuser. The fuser is the part in the printer that heats up and basically melts ( fuses) the toner to the page. The fuser has a heat roller that is coated with teflon, your fuser coating has worn off in spots so the toner is sticking to the roller and causing the ghost image. You will need to order a replacement fuser. You can do a search on Google to find a replacement, the parts number is RM1-1082.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Print quality: dark faded, but continuous


Open top cover and remove toner, shake toner cartridge and try a test print. IF image good then problem is low toner level in cartridge.

Xerox Phaser 8400 Streaking


You can go into the trouble shooting menu and do the "eliminate Light stripes" procedure a few times.
Then you can do Jet substitution from the same menu.
If that does not work then most likely you need a new print head.
If you have used non xerox ink sticks that is your most likely cause of the problem. cheaper is not always better

Ricoh Aficio CL 2000N printing problems


If the colors are good and solid with no fades, only black streaks, then black is the culprit. I suggest replacing the black cartridge.
