When I print- everything prints normal except there is a column or strip on the left hand side that doesn't print. any document I print whether it is text or images nothing appears in this one inch column. It says my toner is fine. And I tried replacing it- didn't work. (Did all the trouble shooting and researching as possible) Any ideas?
Thanks so much
This could be several things-here is a list in order of probability...
1. transfer roller dirty, especially if inside of printer looks like it needs a cleaning. You could vacuum with toner vacuum or take it in for service.
2. scanner mirrors dirty. would need to be serviced by a technician.
3. scanner toner shield out of position-tech needed.
4. toner cartridge (even though its new) needs to be shaken horizontally-toner could be all on one side of hopper.
Thanks and good luck...

Sir, If there is a problem of margin in printing and except it everything is working fine then this not seems to be the problem of printer, its the issue of the file format, You have to check the settings of the programs which you are using for files printing like if you are using Microsoft Word and you have to print the document of Microsoft Word the check the Margin Settings of Microsoft Word,By Decreasing the width of the file you can bring it in correct format and then printer will not miss the left and right margin.
I hope this solution helps you and you have clear picture in your mind now Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.
Sir, Your Rating as FIVE Stars for this solution and words of appreciation will be esteemed Thank You for taking my service
When you see light print it can be from a few things. This is basically a laser printer with a fax machine so the same problems exist in both. The most common cause by far is simply low toner. If you take out the toner cartidge and gentl shake it side to side then put it back in. Now try printing again. This should be much darker. This may only last a few dozen pages (but can go a quite a bit more if you are lucky) but it shows you that you need to get a new toner cartridge. The other causes can be a image setting in the fax. In the control panel it will show you a setting for how dark it will print. Normally it is in the middle of the range. The last common thing is a fusor wire. This normally shows up as a error first but it can slowly fail. The fusor is the heater that bonds the toner to the paper. If it doesn't get hot enough then not all the toner sticks and you get light printing.
Eventually all inkjet printers have this problem. When the printer is doing its thing (printing) there is a small amount of vaporised ink floating around the inside of the unit. This vapor collects on everything inside of the printing chamber, including the sensor strip the printer uses for tracking the print heads location. Luckily it's an easy fix, just clean the sensor strip.
To do this, get yourself some rubber gloves (unless you don't mind having Technicolor hands that is) and some lint free paper towels. Put the gloves on, then wet half a sheet of paper towel so its wet, but NOT dripping wet. open the printer and allow the ink heads to travel to middle. When they reach the middle, unplug the machine so the head stays unlocked and out of home position (where the print head goes when not printing). With the printer unplugged and the print head unlocked, locate the thin semi transparent strip running from one side of the printer to the other, it sorta floats there in mid air as its supported on either side by small metal tabs. Starting at the print head home position , gently, clean this strip with the wet paper towel, making sure not to apply too much pressure as you can pull the strip off the hanger tabs or erase the small lines printed onto on the strip. Once the home position section of the strip is cleaned, dry it off and slide the print head into it's home position and clean and dry the rest of the strip. When done, plug in and power up the unit, then do a test print to ensure the problem is fixed.
Hope this helps.
First try to align the printer head either with software or at the printer control panel. If that one couldn't solve the problem then you may have the encoder strip dirty at left side. It is not easy to access the encoder strip, sent it to workshop.
I have(had) the same problem using the Dell A920 printer on a Dell compunter running XP. After spending a hour trying to find a solution on the internet, I finally found a solution on my own.
