Check the remaining service life of the drums, also check the condition of your transfer belt. It is most likely your problem is one of those two elements.

You may have a bad drum cartridge. Is it refilled? Try replacing it with brand new original.

If there are debris of "black film-like material" you may need to replace your fuser film.

It is leaving heavy blue streaks on everything printed


Hey, blue streaks could be a few different things. The first thing I would check is the image unit. Try swapping out the cyan(blue) image unit with another color, such as magenta. If the streaks change from cyan(blue) to magenta in color then you know the image unit is bad and must be replaced (part # 108R00581). If it is not the image unit then it most likely is the developer. The developer takes about 40 minutes to install and really should be done by a service technician.
Here is a video that shows you how to remove the image unit and where you can purchase one.. Just go to 57 seconds in the video. Hope this helps, good luck!

Whenever I print color, entire page comes out blue. I have replaced the cyan cartridge (twice) and the Laser Transfer Kit. Sometimes there are thick blue streaks in addition to the overall blue color. What...


Run the "disable cartridge check"
It will be in the Diagnostics.
Once you start the test, you can remove all the cartridges. Put the cyan in the black cartridge slot.
print a config page. If it is all blue, you have another bad cartridge. If it prints correctly(minus the other colors)...continue
Now put the magenta in the cyan cartridge slot. Print the config page again. If you have red all over the page, you have a problem with the slot itself.
Press the STOP button and then select EXIT diagnostics. Put the cartridges back where they all go and run CALIBRATION more than once.
Select/menus/down arrow/configure devce/select configure device
Down arrow/print quality/seect print quality
Down arrow/ calibrate now. Select it and wait.

I just replaced the cyan cartridge and I get 4 blue lines that print where they should not be. If I print a blue picture - those line tend to be a lighter blue. I have taken the cartridge out and replaced...


Obviously you need to return the Cyan cartridge to where you got it. It is bad. Is it OEM Samsung or is it remanufactured. If it is remanufactured then it will usually say "for use in" or "remanufactured" somewhere on the box.
Either way it sounds like you need a replacement cartridge under warranty.

Tiny dots about 1 inch apart down the side of page


Again, this was actually HP Laserjet 3800. Problem solved by chatting with HP, and them having me go into a diagnosis mode that disabled cartridge check. Then, I removed the cyan cartridge, the dots went away. They then had me put the black into the cyan slot, and not dots appeared. I had backup toner on hand, swapped in a new cyan and magenta, and all was good. HP agreed to replace the cartridges.

CLP-500 vertical streaks & a horizontal line with blotches appearing randomly


I've refilled the toner cartridges a few times now and never had a problem with vertical streaks until recently. I refilled both the cyan and magenta and when I ran the test page I had dark vertical streaks on both sides. I fiddled around cleaning things, running cleaning paper through, changing reset resistors but to no avail so eventually decided to buy a replacement refurbished cyan cartridge since the streaks looked mainly blue and bingo... well almost now I just have very light magenta streaks. The issue is obvious when I compared the old and new cartridge, the replacement toner is a much duller cyan and is of the wrong consistency since once it's been in the printer everything gets covered in it which is why I think it causes the banding to occur. I'm just trying to work out now whether to try refilling the magenta again (v. messy) or just go for another refurbished cartridge (£34).
