Spots/Lines on the prints

We changed the black cartridge and after that we get prints with yellow and blue spots/lines. We removed all cartridges and we shuffled them and replaced them. After it we calibrated. On the roll of the blue and yellow cartridges there are strainght spots on the left side. How can we solved this problem?

Take out the drum cartridge (piece with the long green arm) and look down inside the printer for any toner that may be leaking on your pages.

So I understand correctly, you were seeing different color toner on the cyan and yellow rollers?. If so gently clean that side of the roller off. Rotate the white gear on the right side of the toner cartridge back towards you and see if the correct color comes back on the roller. If you were seeing grooves on the roller then they will have to be replaced.

Put the toner cartridges back in and run color calibration.
Press menu/select. Right arrow key until you get to engine. Press select. Left arrow key until you get to service.
Press select. Right arrow key until you get to color calibration.
Press select.

Any other information would be helpful.

Hello,
the drum is in cartridge with toner. So if you buy new cartridge ( genuine or repaired ) you can use your MFP.
You must have on mind that you have 4 drum/toner units inside - Bk, C, M, Y. To be sure which one is needed to be changed refer to your problem, which I presume are lines and spots on printed paper. i.e. if the lines are yellow, you need to replace yellow cartridge.
The crg. No. are:
CB540A-Bk
CB541A-C
CB542A-Y
CB543A-M

Remanufactured one are from 50USD to 70 USD depending on quality.

The each cartridge goes about 2000-2500 prints/copies.

Hope that helps!

I have changed cartridge and drum in the printer


If the cartridge has irregularities on it you will get poor results. The large black roller should be smooth all the way around. Any bumps will cause lines and spots. It is not recommended but I have had luck cleaning that large black roller. Once smooth the lines went away.

Brother mfc 7820N. I changed the cartridge and now my copies come out with black spots on them. What did i do wrong this is my second cartridge.


Are you using Genunine Cartridges!!!!

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.


These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

How to clean Lexmark Z1320 printer.


hi..

You can clean the cartridge using the following steps:

Click on "Start," go to "All Programs," and down to the Lexmark. Click on the "Solution Center." Next, click on the "Maintenance" tab. Select "Clean to fix horizontal strips." This will produce a printed page.

The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.

If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:

1. Please open the "Solution Center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge (or cartridges) from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. Also, wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier).
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean to fix horizontal strips" one more time. If this fails to address the problem, the entire procedure may need repeating.

try out..

Spots on paper


Look on the image drum (bottom of toner cartridge) are there spots on that?? if so clean carefully so as not to damage it or replace the cartridge. If this is not the case open the cartridge door during a print, but before the paper fully enters the fuser and check if the spots are already there, if not the fuser is causing the problems.
