Oki b410d printer has a new toner cartridge however it is still printing inconsistently on the page?


Open the lid. Mounted under the lid you should see a horizontal bar which is actually the laser [LED]. Once your toner cart has emitted, enough loose toner has accumulated on the laser that it can no longer draw on the page correctly. Using something soft and barely dampened with water [use a soft cotton cloth, NO PAPER PRODUCTS, no dirty rags, etc] and wipe gently from L to R to remove the loose toner. Turn to a clean section of the cloth and do it once more. GENTLY! No pressure, do not scrub it, or you can damage the laser. Close the lid and print something. You should be back to good now.

Black streak on scanned printed copies


Hi

Open your scanner lid and make sure their is no dirty marks sitting on your scanner glass. Also does this happen on the scanner glass or when using the ADF? If its on the ADF its most likely that the glass is dirty and needs to be cleaned. 6c66c542-b5d2-4d0a-8a21-00c054973a29.png

Just replaced black cartridge in my 2600n color laser. I have smudged about a half inch wide 2/3rds over the right of each page. It only smudges in black. I have recalibrated several times. Printed at...


If this just started after you replaced the toner cartridge, one would have to say that it is a bad toner cartridge.
Print something that smudges. Pull down the front cover and look at the cartridges. Pay attention to the top one(black).
Look at the drum on that cartridge. You should see the toner sitting there. Compare it to the other cartridges which should be clean.

I have an ImageCass D861 copier. I have loved it until recently and it's getting worse. If I make only one copy when the machine isn't warmed up, it will be clean. But if I make multiple copies, or more...


This is coming from 1 of 2 places. The first and most common is the toner cartridge itself. If you have a spare go ahead and replace it. If not you will need to get another cartridge and swap it with your current cartridge. This will correct the copy quality 9 times out of 10 on these machines. If a new cartridge does not resolve the issue then the only other cause is the fusing unit. The fusing unit is located right where the paper exits the machine. It heats up and uses heat and pressure to "fuse" the toner onto the paper. When the fuser film in the fuser starts to go bad they will start to run dirty and also "double image" where a part of the printing from the top of the page gets reprinted lighter at the middle/bottom of the page. Sometimes you may also hear a crackling sound coming from this area which can be a sign of the fuser film going bad. The fuser replacement is much more expensive to have done so let hope that the cartridge will resolve your issue.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

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.

The two problems may not be related. Adding toner should not under most circumstances cause copies to become light, unless the toner you are using is of a poor quality - I hope it is a Canon cartridge or quality generic. It sounds as though your fixing film or drum unit may need replacing, or perhaps you need to perform a install procedure. As the 'install - toner - start' option is free, try it first:

First press the head key and then the number '2' and '8' keys at the same time then press the head key again. This will take you into service mode - select 'copier' then 'install' then 'toner' then 'start'. This will run throught a cycle that takes a little while, I think about 599 seconds (sorry for been so accurate but unhelpful but that's what I remember from the display - never converted into minutes but you're welcome to).

But if you are having blurry or even dirty or light copies it may be the fixing film. When the copies are printed, immediately check if you can rub off the toner at all by rubbing the print with your fingers - if so this indicates that the fixing unit is not hot enough or there is not enough pressure - check that the fuser is in properly and that the jam release lever is not engaged.

Lastly, it could be your drum unit that is faulty or worn. Totest this you will need to try and stop the machine in the middle of printing before it reaches the fuser - open the front cover and latch down the transport bed with the green handle - remove the paper gently so as not to disturb the ink in any way and observe the image quality - if it is displaying the exact same symptoms then it is not your fuser and is probably the drum unit or dodgy toner - most likely the drum. However, if the image is fine, then it most definetely is your fuser film (and or perhaps the cleaning roller that cleans the film).

Good luck

Too light of print


Blowing out dust is not a good idea. access to the laser optics is open on this machine, and you will only make the problem worse, by blowing dust and toner inside.
Dirty laser optics are the cause of our problem. The only way to solve is remove top cover of machine remove several wire connectors, remove cover of laser unit and clean all mirrors, motor, and reflectors.

HP 3050 vertical black lines during fax


OK, from the desciption i can assume several things here are some option.
If by receipt you are talking about the confirmation the unit prints the the problem is likely dirty glass.
You would also get the lines when you make a copy using the ADF.
Open the lid there are two areas of glass the thin strip is likely dirty and needs to be cleaned.

If by receipt you mean pages you receive from someone else, and not printed or copied on your machine, then their machine has the condition described above.

If everything has the lines then you have a toner or fuser problem:
This is the test to determine toner or fuser issue.
Print a test page
When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top to stop the machine
Remove the toner cart.
You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser)
If you can see the smudge or marks on the page the problem is most likely the cartridge but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.
Hope this helps
