Welcome to FixYa!

Solution 1.
Since it has a new toner, try to lower the print quality which can be accessed in the properties of the printer.

Solution 2.
Do a print head cleaning which can also be accessed in the properties of the printer.

Solution 3.
Try to print in other paper, the paper thickness might not be correct. Set it up in the printer properties as well.

i hope that this helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Have just replaced Black Toner on Epson aculaser c2800 and now repeated regular pattern of smudges on every page (8 columns and 10 smudges per page)


This is caused by the toner cartridges. The manufacturer change an internal component to save a few coppers and this is the result. Usually only happens when the toner cartridge is old and the 'foam roller' in the toner cartridge starts to get a bit 'sticky' - as happens with some types of foam when it ages.


Two cures for the problem

1. Change the cartridge - make sure it is 'fresh'

2 Find an old cartridge with the old type of foam roller (plain full width) and swap this and its support into the cartridge to replace the new (spiral foam) roller

My HP 4100 printer prints with a black smudge clear down the page. I clean the roller but continues to print bad copies. Should I replace the cartridge?


Problem is either the cartridge or the fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1)
Print something. When the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the
top cover. Pull out the toner, look down at the paper.
If it has the smudge replace the toner. If no smudge, replace the fuser.

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 am getting smudges on the sides of the pages as they print, as well as some ghosting of some of the print detail...I tried dusting whatever visible surfaces I can to try to get any extra toner dust out.....


the corona wire/roller is the main charging unit for the static drum and the paper, if that is dirtied by toner u will get smudges all over your pages even with a new catridge. if ur familiar with the corona unit try cleaning it but be careful not to damage it. other wise take your printer to the technician.

Just installed a new toner cartridge and I'm getting 3 horizontal smudges (feint traces of the first line of text in each smudge) any suggestions?


you may have put a scratch mark on the drum. take the toner out and manually rotate the drum and see if you can find the same smudges.

Pale smudges regularly spaced down left margin, 1.5 inches apart


Hi:

Since you have already replace the toner cartridge then the most likely culprit is the fuser assy. You can test this by trying to print something and stop it by opening the cover just as the paper is trying to pass under the toner cart. Remove the toner cart carefully and look at the unfused print on the paper. Do you see the faint smudges? If not, then the problem lies with the fuser assy. This is the unit that gets hot and fuses the toner to the paper. If this is the case you will need to have a tech replace it for you.

Good Luck

Laser jet produces printouts that are smudged and dark


Remove the toner cartridge and use a soft cloth to wipe the photo drum clean of toner. Put it back and try again, if you still get bad prints, then you need a new toner cartridge.

BLACK SMUDGING


Hmm... This sounds like it is a toner problem. If your roller is getting too much toner then it just globs it onto the paper even though the drum is not asking for it. Are you using a new toner cartridge or a re-filled one? Is it from Brother or a 3rd party? I suggest you remove the toner cartridge and check inside the printer. Clean any spilled toner. Check the toner cartridge for leaks .. give it a good shake and see if it is leaking. If you have another toner cartridge, you can replace it to test. You may need to pint a few pages to see a change. Another test could be to print a few (2-5) "BLANK" pages. The printer should not be depositing any toner. If no smudge or the smudge stays the same, then the toner cartridge is the likely problem. If the smudge is there, but gets smaller, then clean your printer.

Good luck!
