I had the exact problem. It was caused by a defective photoconductor.

Depending on what colour the spots/marks are, the photoconductor for that toner cartridge needs to be changed.

No color ink


To solve this issue what u can try is remove the ink cartridges from the printer. Unplugg and replugg the power cable. Clean the copper contacts of the carts using a dry paper towell. Snap the cart back to the printer and install the cart as the new cart. Print the alignment page. Also uninstall and reinstall the driver using the original CD, sometimes Windows can change to an "updated" driver with Windows update. It may have installed a B&W driver.

If all this fails it might be the issue with the encoder strip. Call Lex Tech Support and get help to fix the encoder strip.

The paper has a black mark on the left edge like a roller has ink on it 2in long 4 places


Hi,
Here are some instructions that you can follow to try to identify and resolve the problem with the black marks.
First click on the following link http://bit.ly/aNzNsl and follow the steps on how to print the Print Quality Pages. Once you have those pages printed Then it will be easy to identify where the problem is coming from. If the problem is more visible in one color than in the others then you might be looking at a problem with either the Photoconductor or the Developer Roller. If the black marks are showing on all the page regardless of color then the problem could be contamination either on the Transfer Belt or in the Photoconductor Units and maybe need to be replaced and/or clean. To clean a contaminated printer you will need to vacuum the inside so that residual toner will not get blown into some other parts of the printer.
Hope it helps.

Xerox phaser 7700 having problems printing transparencies and accumulator belt problems


Hi xander4265:
I
Streaks in direction of paper travel
There are dark lines running along
the page in the direction of paper
travel from the leading edge to the
trailing edge (B-size print shown).
The printer displays no error code.
Note A-size prints are processed
through the printer with the short
edge of the print parallel to the
direction of the paper path --
making horizontal print artifacts
parallel to the shot edge of the
print.
B-size prints are processed
through the printer with the long
edge of the print parallel to the
paper path -- making horizontal
artifacts parallel to the long axis
of the print.
1. Check the end of life for each of
the consumables by printing the
supplies usage page. From the front panel’s Printable Pages Menu, select
Print Supplies Page.
2. Run the solid fill test pages; From the front panel’s Printable Pages Menu,
select Service Pages, then select Print Solid Fill Pages. If the missing bands
only occur in a single primary color, replace the print cartridge of the affected
color.
3. Swap print cartridges and run another test print.
Note Under some circumstances, streaking may occur in the margin of
SRA3-size paper. This is due to the edges of the paper extending
beyond the end of the imaging components. print-quality in the
margins of SRA3 paper is not guaranteed.
4. Inspect the Accumulator Belt cleaner; replace the cleaner, if necessary.
5. Run the Remove Print Smears routine. From the front panel’s Support Menu,
select Improve Print-Quality?, then select Remove Print Smears.
6. Replace the Developer Housing Assembly (RRP 27, on page 7-171).
7. Remove the print cartridge and (with a flashlight) check for debris along the
edge of the developer housing.

Spots when printing


It sounds to me like you may have 2 low or defective toners, the Cyan and the Magenta. If you have another machine like this available to you try swapping these 2 toners out to test the theory or you can take these 2 toners out and spin the drum manually (by only touching the gear) checking to see if the spots you see on the pages correspond on the applicator roll of the toners...

Lines along edge of paper


1 of 3 things I can think of off top of my head.
Since they are straight, I would suspect the transfer unit.
If it were just one color it would be that imaging unit.
Unlikely the fuser.
It doesn't sound line an issue called bar coding ,where the machine prints random lines. That would be a software issue.
Take the transfer unit out and inspect it for the marks.
I am assuming the streaks are on all colors correct?
If it isn't on the transfer belt, and on all colors check the fuser and see if its latched.
