It is probably evaporation and is normal as specified on the back of the top of the printer.

How can i print both sides of paper on my magiccolor5550

IF you have the optional duplex unit installed on your printer then when you go to print something, your printer setup screen should have a duplex/2 sided printing box you can check. This will be under printing preferences or properties. If you do NOT have the optional duplex option then you have to manually duplex. That means on say a 2 page document that you want 10 copies of you have to print 10 copies of page 1. Then take those 10 copies and place them back into the paper tray and print 10 copies of page 2 onto the backs of page 1.
Those are you 2 choices for duplex printing.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Samsung ml1640 print quality is faded down one side unit is only 4 months old and toner is half full

try cleaning the internal top part of the printer... if the toner or dust is covering the laser unit.. you will have print out distortion.. like blur print out..
how many copies have you printed with the printer? toner that comes with the new printer is normally less than those replacement toner which you buy later..

Cartridge has just been remanufactured but page is coming out completely black

Your toner has either been overfilled, or the cartridge had been tipped upside down. Use the menu to print a test page as well as a font printout and see if printing 10 to 20 copies clear the problem up.

Look into changing out the drum that may be defective.
If this unit is that hot that it smokes but it still prints see if there is a cooling fan.
This unit running under the condition you mentioned might start a fire.

mine is the same way, to solve this I elevated the bottum by 2 inches, then i kept it off, also i blow a fan on it while running.
also, you need to clean the filter (the gray "L" inside) black dust should come out.
lastly, mine actually broke because it overheated.
