Question about Sharp MX-2700N Color Copier
Black only printing shows smeared areas on prints. Starts out fine, then problem builds.
You only have to make single color copies with each color CMYK
and check all the copies if only the black and white copies is smeary
then replace only the black the drum unit.

First of all, this copier doen't have print heads that spray ink like an inkjet. Its print heads (4, one for each color) are LED arrays, all they do is emit light. They can get dirty, but not clogged with ink.
Suggestion: Make a color copy at the copier, then print a color picture from a workstation. If the copied page looks good and the printed one doesn't, the copier is probably OK. Reinstall the print driver. I suggest you download the latest driver just for effect.
This worked for me at a customers site just today.

Using CMY Color produces a Processed Black.
Using only K will produce a Black.
In the print driver on a PC change your default setting to Black, from the machine you can set it to use only black as well.
That Patch is on the transfer belt. which it will alwyas do, that is what color machines do.
Install the print driver twice and set one driver s Color Mode to color and one to greyscale. This setting can be accessed by right clicking on the print driver and selecting Printing Preferences, click on the Color tab and set the Color Mode appropriately.

it seems that your print head is the problem you can try to clean it first..
but if you already try to do this no other choice is to have a service center o change it for you.

You probably have some build up on the glass, which happens if you use the auto feeder most often. Alcohol type cleaner will remove with a very softcloth. One small dot will look like a long streak on a feeder, much like a streaked fax. The other issue is the photoreceptor belt has nicks or is dirty eaither way it needs to be replaced. Try the cleaning first and you may have to look hard for the small dots built up on the glass.
