I'm gonna assume you have a laser printer. You might need a cleaning since some toner might have spilled when you replace your toner. Toner gets into the rollers inside the printer that pulls the paper thru and creates smudgy black lines.

Check out your local business supply store like Staples for Laser Printer Cleaning paper. It doesn't work 100% of the time depend how dirty the inside of the printer is. Maybe a quick fix then buying a new printer. Getting toner mess out is a a messy job.

My printer keeps printing black smudge like lines on the sides of the paper. Can you tell me what this might be?


usually its a defective toner cart. recycled carts are just refilled, they are not reconditioned. I would remove that cart, clean the mechanism, and replace with a new cart.

Printer is printing two smudge marks on my documents.


Two parts of the printer can affect this.
1) the toner cartridge
2) the fuser

Testing can be done to determine the problematic part.

Do a print using manual feed. Once the last bit of paper goes into the machine, open the printer door.
Remove the toner to check if smudge is there.
Replace toner cartridge if there is smudge, replace fuser it not.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N is now printing all documents with lines/streaks all down the left margin of the page. What do I clean or replace to get rid of these unsightly lines printing on every page?


you can try printing a page in black only, then one page each in the 3 other SINGLE colors: Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow. this will eliminate/ confirm one of these causing problem.

the replacement of Transfer Belt Cleaner or Cleaner Assembly is another to try after the above separate-color thing. see if there's a status page of life remaining on replaceable items, including the Transfer belt assy.

i'll assume you didn't scan the job- - this isn't a multifunction scanner/printer type machine?

ok, next in line is to check the Fuser unit, the part on the upper left side/top of printer. if the same streaks appear on the Main fuser rollers, these fuser units cost about 350 bucks. there is also a Fuser Kit, which costs much less, but its job is to add Fuser Oil to the fuser unit and keep paper and ink from sticking.
a guy could suffer sticker shock from the costs of running one of these, considering you could drop a grand buying all 4 drum units, a fuser unit, and a transfer belt assy. . . .

Black lines


Not sure what you have tried but if there are no lines when printing but there when scanning there is something on the scanner. Could be something as small a single dot of dirt and it will put a line down the whole page. Try cleaning the glass.

Printer running too slow


This worked for me, open the lid of the printer, there is a "white band" attached to the 2 printer cartridges, this was "smudgy" with ink, got kitchen paper and cleaned it and used q tips (I normally clean my ears with them) and got rid of the sludge and dust located on the floor underneath the printer cartridges. After that printer is working fine, hope this helps!
