SOURCE: Can smears when priting be fixed

Have you tried cleaning the corona wire on the drum unit (the blue slider bit)?

Replace the drum unit (assuming you have already replaced the toner cart?)

To check the remaining drum life press the go button 3 times. A report should print out with the info on. Even though you may have some remaining life, the drum can fail early.

If the dots/marks are repeating about 3 times down the page it is almost certainly the drum unit that has the problem.

The drum probably needs to be cleaned. Refer to the Routine Maintenance section in Appendix C of your Users Guide.

Print smears on right edge of paper only


It is possible that the fuser film is damaged. The fuser film covers the heating element. Open the back panel, and examine the area where the paper exits. The grey film should cover the same area as the lower black roller. If not, you will either need to replace the fuser or obtain a replacement fuser film and install it. Is the printer noisier than it used to be? The fuser bushings on these printers are notorious for wearing out and causing the film to fail. If the bushings are worn then likely a replacement fuser will be the solution for you.

Consistent dots down print


Try to print clean page ,
Print a cleaning page During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate inside the printer and can cause print quality issues such as toner specks or spatter, smears, streaks, lines or repeating marks. Follow these steps to clean the printer's paper path.
  1. Load copier-grade paper (not bond, heavy, or rough paper).
  2. On the printer's control panel, touch the Menu button.
  3. Touch Configure Device .
  4. Touch Print Quality .
  5. Touch Process Cleaning Page .
A Cleaning message appears on the printer control panel display while the cleaning is taking place. The cleaning process takes a few minutes to complete.

You might need to repeat the cleaning process to thoroughly clean the printer. Print a few more pages to see if the problem is resolved.

Prints black dots at bottom of page - photoconductor was replaced earlier today


The black dots could be a few things, the most likely would have something to do with the drum area because the dots didn't appear until after service. If the dots are only about an inch apart it is probably the charge roller. If there is only 1-2 dots per page, the issue is likely with the drum. These figures are assuming you are running 8 1/2 x 11 paper with the long edge being fed in first. If this is the case, you can change the paper to feed with the short edge first and this may get you by until the technician gets back out to fix it.

The printer is printing little black dots on my documents


If the dots are all over the paper you may need to replace your toner cartridge. If the dots are smearing, you may need to check your fuser assembly (have it checked by a professional).

Black smear of ink at end of lines


Please load the printer with at least 10 sheets of plain paper then press the start button. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains, streaks or smudges are still present, the printer may need service.

Epson 9800 Prints black dotted vertical line


This is a workaround - I too need a definitive answer. Symptom: black dotted vertical line 1/2 to 3/4" from leftmost image edge. I have begun adding single vertical line to my prints .25" from the left edge of the paper to force the "dots" off my print - this seems to have the desired affect, but it does not answer the cause or provide a true remedy (it will save many of your prints while we wait for complete solution). dkh

It MUST be completely WHITE or it will give you black streaks. if it cannot be cleaned then use white out to cover. ( makesure it is completely dry before using).
