Thanks for asking. I believe that my problem is fixed. I took out the ink cartridges one at a time and tapped them against the desk side without touching the rollers and shook the ink inside.I taped in both directions so as to shake well. At the time being then it prints fine. So now when it does this again then I will try this method first.
Have a Great Day

SOURCE: Printer leaves a grey haze on the page.

If your fuser is not failing then someone probably didn't install the toner properly. Regardless, it is incredibly hard to clean toner out from all the guts and the gray won't go away as long as it is there. I would take it outside, wear a smock, and blow it out with an air compressor or half a dozen cans of compressed air. Wipe down and clean every part you can.

Replace the toner cartridge. Then run a couple dozen copies of something to pick up the remaining toner from the internal mechanisms. See if their is any more toner. If there isn't...then somebody messed up and you just need to work the last of the toner out of the innards.If there is more toner after you clean it out and replace the toner cartridge, start thinking about replacing the fuser.

Dirty pages


sounds like a dodgy black toner - is it a 3rd party toner - had this quite a lot myself at work with cheaper cartridges. to print a cleaning page just flick through the menu to diagnostics or print quality - in here you should find some cleaning tools of the machine

Hp laserjet 2550n stopped prining in color, why?


Check your print driver settings. And if you are printing from any of the microsoft office applications look at the page setup to see if something was changed. Click file, then right near print is the page setup.

When I print the picture has a purple haze in it ?


If you are using re-manufactured ink tanks, that would explain it, a mi-matched ink tank. To clarify the ink colour is not quite right.

If genuine ink tanks (Recommended) then maybe try different paper. If using photo paper you should be using compatible / genuine paper as the different chemicals react can give this problem.

If using fax / standard paper then could be print head fault....normally get an error code.

Just bought CANON #30 cartridge. print quality terrible


sometimes cartridges are bad brand new right out of the box, if you pull out the cartridge and flip it over there is a spring loaded door you can open to see the drum. If you see streaks or a white powder haze on it, take it back to where you bought it and exchange it.

Have a Xerox M20i. Copy comes out light. Toner should be OK. Prints fine. Scans fine.


You need to clean the scanner. You can try doing the shading adjustment to calabrate the scanner but most likely the mirrors are hazed up. Since you can print fine you eliminate the laser.
To do the shading adjustment, you need to press in order,,, Menu # 1934, You will see a " T "on the screen, that will be the tech mode. Press the machine status, then go to maintenance, then scroll to shading. Place 5 sheets of white paper on the glass and then run the shading adjustment. turn the machine off and on, and run copies again. But most likely you will have to take the scanner off and clean it.
If you want to clean the scanner let me know, I will send you directions on how to do that. The mirrors in that scan head tend to haze up.

Internal test page fine, external prints black in blue


before you print, you have to check your options.

For example, if you want to print black and white, when you select PRINT from the menu, you click on PROPERTIES to the right side or bottom side, depending on which windows you use, then select grayscale/black and white, etc in the options that will follow to correctly use your ink, you can always REMOVE the ink from your printer as you only want to print black and white or non color pages.

I hope this helps you.

Problem with phaser


Phaser 2135 Printer: Resolving dirty looking background or gray haze

Description: Tiny speckles of toner scattered all over the page, even in areas of the page that should be blank.
  1. Make sure the media being used is supported by the Phaser 2135 printer.
  2. Inspect imaging drums for any signs of leakage or excess toner that could be falling onto the print as it travels though the printer. Any leaking imaging drums should be replaced.
  3. Verify environmental conditions. See article Dealing with humidity, humidifiers. If the environmental conditions are not within the specified range, the printer should be moved before trying to troubleshoot the cause to the background toner.
  4. Determine if any of the imaging drums were exposed to light for an extended period of time (more than 10 minutes). If so, then Replace the imaging drum. (Xerox is not responsible for any imaging drums that have been damaged by over exposure to light.)
Additional Recommendations:
Background toner may increase, if printing occurs at temperatures towards the higher end of the specified operating temperature range. For this reason, it is recommended that the printer be moved to another area if at all possible.
In addition, very smooth media types such as glossy; allow toner to more easily scatter about the page prior to becoming fused. Try using a less smooth media if at all possible.
