Seems that the Laser Drum is actually starting to fail.
This requires replacement, unfortunately there is no "fix" for these.

IBM 6400 Matrix Printer is printing twice over a previous line it seem on to happen once or twice per page of text there seems to be no issue with the tractor feed no drag on the paper source and the test...


Might be your gap is set to high. try moving the right lever from A to B for example and see if it clears it out. Also might be your parallelism, you will find to hex screws on the right and left of the platen assy that u can adjust. This will balance out the shuttle if one side is printing to light and another is printing to dark. Rory 708-597-4222

The printer is printing dark along side the edges of the paper each time I print. I've changed the drum, but that didn't seem to help. What else can I do?


Print an empty word document, and if it still shows the dark lines on the edges the rollers are most likely caked with ink, and they will need to be cleaned.

Broad dark line on right edge of copied papers


If you have the black line on copies and scans but printing from P.C is fine, then your scanner is broken.

Contact your printer manufacturer for a replacement or repair.

DARK LINES/SHADES APPEARING ON BACK OF PRINTS


when the print-out shows lines or streaks on the back of the paper when printing single sidedly, this usually means that the fusing unit is dirty or broken. another possible broken part may be the photoconductor unit.

I'm having problems with my 1720 Dell printer...the load paper light comes on after one page printing out however I can occassional get it to print if I cancel the job and put paper in the manual feeder...


it sounds like your driver is set to print to the manual feeder OR set to a different paper size (like legal) Check your driver settings under printers in the control panel. (it'll be along the lines of "paper type" or "tray settings" under printing prefrences. Just as a heads up, it could also be the software causing the issue. MS word tends to hijack settings and create problems as well.

Dark print out


check the fuser... to see if one of the rollers has toner all over it... then check your paper path... to see if you see any obvious signs... then try printing 20 pages and opening the copier at various times during the printout process... you want to see if you can catch it where the dark starts appearing... chances are where it starts... is right next to the bad part... you are looking for a print out with one half no dark and the other half real dark...

BROTHER MFC-8860DN EVERY TIME I PRINT TWO DARK LINES PRINT ON EACH SIDE OF THE PAPER?


I had a similar problem but it was only one dark line on the right side of each page. I just changed the drum while keeping the same toner and the problem is gone.

Perforations on paper


I can't find anywhere on Canon's information that it has the ability to perforate as a setting.
This sounds like that is something dragging from the print head that is causing it.
I would take it back to the shop you got it from, and have them replace it.
Make sure to take an example of what it is doing when it prints.
