When you click on print, then click on properties, then click on basics. Then over on the left side you will see two sliders, the top one is ink consumption, if you will slide it to the left about half way, then click okay and click on paper and down at the bottom left you will see select paper and it will have automatic, click this open and select the exact paper you are using. Oh yes, you will have to do this every time you open the print window, it will always go back to default when you expit printing program.

Toner smears on all print outs. Looking for what part to replace.


Do you mean when the print comes out the toner smears on the paper when you touch it? If so, then it's the fuser that isn't working properly.
However, if you mean when the print comes out there is smeared toner in various places on your print, but the smears are fixed to the paper, then the cause is more complicated and could be caused by a number of different problems within the printer.

Hello, when it prints it makes a noise and bottom of page is smeared


Smeared output can result when you re-feed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing parts, this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner or you can clean the rollers with rubbing alcohol.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

Finally, if this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; toner that is not heated properly will fall from the page and smear. If the thermostat is bad or the fuser not working properly, you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

As for the noise, there are several complex gear and roller segments that drive the paper between the paper tray, the scanner, the fuser, and the finisher. If these are not perfectly aligned or dirty the printer can make a grinding noise. It's even possible that if the paper is not being fed correctly, that the shift might leave segments of it less accessible to the fuser and prevent the toner from adhering to the page.

But I would try using WD-40 to lubricate some of these components and assume the noise and the smearing are separate issues.

Epson Stylus R220 CD Print Smears after printing.


It has to be a bad batch or the wrong system.
Are you sure that the disks are labeled inkjet printable and not lightscribe?
Most printables are white in color and lightscribes are tannish.

Phaser 8200 Smears on Linen Paper


Your maintenance kit is running low on oil and needs to be replaced. Since the image drum is not getting enough lubrication, some of the ink from the previous page is sticking to the drum and carried over onto the next page. Also, try to match the printer paper type to the paper you are using. It will adjust speed, temperature, etc. to optimize print.

Samsung CLP-300 dark prints and smears


For starters remember this is not meant to be a PHOTO Printer, I am guessing the Spearing is because Glossy paper does not hold the toner like Regular paper or at least until it is fused. I am a technitiian and i also own this printer.
