Dots, Lines and smudges on the printouts are due to deteriorating cartridges and cleaning the green drum of the cartridge may help temporarily. Take out the cartridge and gently clean the roller/ green drum with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth wiping off the toner dots marks/ lines.
Also, make sure that the visible inside of the printer is clean and ther is no spilled toner inside, which sometimes results in dots.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.


GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

Whatever I print looks "dirty",


If the cartridges are not HP brand, that may be the problem.

Try to figure out exactly what color the "grey" background color is.
If it is truly grey, the black cartridge might be the problem.

You can also try a different type of paper.
Some paper may respond to the printing process differently than others.

If you find that the background is a red, the scanner will have to be removed and cleaned.
These models have a tendency to collect red (magenta) toner on the scanner assembly lenses.

You may need to replace FORMATTER BOARD & DC CONTROLER BOARD ASSY which are located behind the printer. Both BOARDs are side by side together. Just open the back cover, you will see it.

There is a good chance the laser unit polygonal mirror is dirty. It spins at high speed and the lead edge generally gets dirty. Try removing it with care, cleaning the polygonal mirror and the lens's in the lazer unit

Grey/dirty background on prints


Try cleaning the ETB.  Go to the secondary service menu (press the left arrow and stop buttons on the panel simultaneously until you see the secondary service menu), press the left button until you see "Clean ETB," then press the green check button to start the cleaning.  You may need to do this several times to get it clean.

Hi,

if you have a laser printer you may need to clean the printer or install a new drum cartridge, if it is ink-jet you will have to clean the bottom of the ink cradle it sound like you getting grey background from a toner/drum cartridge.

How do I reset the ink levels?


Well, theres the problem. Most printers can remember up to three cartridges. That includes color & black. The best way to put it is that each cartridge has a"funger print" that the printer can read, and estimated ink levels can be gaged. There is a way to "reset" the cartridges, but i do not have the document on me. Please email steve@nicesites.org and I'll send it today. I'm not saying it will work 100%, as the reset method is geared for the 56/57/58, but who knows right?

Laser Printer Cleaning


Does the dirty background get lighter as you print additional pages? Have you tried a new cartridge yet? Unless your toner cartridge is leaking toner (you?ll see toner on the inside of the printer or leaking out if you remove the cartridge and shake) a simple cleaning is probably not the answer. Let me know and we'll pick up later.
