It looks like it's ghosting - shadows

When I print with it - there are shadows of already printed things that are printing over other parts of the printed paper.

Most likely the fuser needs replaced. The heat roller is worn and causing reprint.

Why is there ghost printing/shadows on my xerox workcentre 7335?


Suresh,
You don't say if the ghost is a particular colour, by ghost I suspect you mean similar to a drop shadow.
Firstly run off an internal test print, one of each colour if the grid lines are fine and showing no signs of shadow then your problem is not an internal problem. Don't send a C,M,Y,K test print from your computer, you can't eliminate colours that way.
If you can pin the problem down to one colour it could be a particular drum unit. Investigate from there.
Good Luck.

Samsung clp 315 printing shadow images


Ghosting appears often because of bad toner. If cartridges have been refilled, they have wrong toner in them. If drum has worn out it will usually tell you. All parts for this machine cost too much. If toner is not the problem, probably best to get a new machine rather than pay to get it fixed. Brothers are cheaper to run.

How do I fix double printing


Not sure what you mean by double printing.

Is it printing a ghost of what you print further down the page. Or is it mis-aligning the characters so it appears to have a shadow on each character?

My HP Laserjet P2055dn prints out with a shadow of everything printed.


Hello,

The ghosting is caused by the fuser assembly. The main user roller has a Teflon coating that keep the toner from sticking, when the coating wears off you start getting the ghost printing like you are having. You can get replacement fusers online from many sources, just do a Google search for P2055DN Fuser. They are user replaceable, only requiring a Phillips screwdriver to replace.

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

I have canon lbp 2900 printer when i print first line shadow is also printed in the middle of page and middle line shadow is also is printed in the last of page. and some of line shadow is also printed.


Repetitive ghosting defects like this are caused by either a bad drum in the cartridge or a damaged or worn fuser assembly. Try a different cartridge first, but make sure you print at least 50 pages to make sure that any toner residue is cleaned of the fuser in the printing process. If the defect is still there then you will need to either repair or replace the fuser.

Getting shadowing on print out?


shadowing or ghost printing is usually caused by a fuser that is not running at its opperating temperature the fuser is the problem about 85% of the time. the thermistor is directly responsible replacing this part will clear up the prolem or repace the whole fuser depending on the wear. toner cartridges can also do this for the toner to do this its usually a expose drum has been set down on a dirty or rough surface thus compromising its surface

Ghost printing


Hello,

You have a worn image drum. The drum is the part of the printer that the print image is created on before it transfers the toner to the paper. This part is coated with a very thin layer of Teflon so the toner does not stick. When it gets worn the toner starts to stick and that produces the shadow or ghost image approximately 3 inches down the page because the diameter of the drum roller is 3 inches. You will need to get the part DR-350, Office Depot has them as well as many places on the internet.

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

Text "ghosts" or shadows


Replace Drum or blade(if possible) will fix on most types of copiers/printers, or rarer it is cause of fuser.
