Question about Samsung SCX-4100 All-In-One Laser Printer

Words Copied Multiple Times


When I print a sheet all words will appear as they should. However multiple words are being copied lightly through-out the whole page, over top of each line. It's like the roller is retaining wet ink?

Thanks in Advance!

    When you state "stop print mid way and remove cart to see print", physical what am I removing when I remove the "cart"?

    Okay, it appears it is the fuse roller. How do I remove and replace it?

Put the printer into the 1200 low resolution mode. Then go to Control panel --> Printers ---> Select your printer --> Right click --> properties --> Configure tab --> Print Density ---> Make it the lightest that is 1 and check.

Although there is an issue with the cartridge, this process will give you significantly better result. In my case the ghost repeat vanished. But a few micro dots can be seen if you take a very very close look. Good luck for all who may have this issue.

It will be one of two things Drum cart or fuser, from your description it sounds like the drum, it has a rubber blade on it that wipes old image from it. They wear and dont perform properly. Replace drum

The only other likely possibilty is worn fuser roller (hot bit at rear
) To find if it is fuser or drum stop print mid way and remove cart to see print, if image is bad before print has gone threw fuser(wipes off) then it is drum, if print is ok pre fuser then it is fuser roller causing prob.

    Replace fuser assy, remove covers and work your way to it, cost of fuser will be around 100 bucks is it worth it???

    Sorry cant descibe process without particular model in front of me,

    By Cart, I mean Drum/toner Cartridge..

    When I say (wipes off) I'm trying to descibe what happens at that stage of printing ie before Fuser.

    This test goes for all laser printers

    When I say "print" I am trying to speak of the printing on the paper.

    These days I change complete fuser assembly because it is labour intensive(expensive) replacing just the roller.

    You can purchase just upper heat rollers for some models.

    Samsung in Australia, Do not stock roller only complete fuser assy, ring your local dealer for pricing.

How do you do multiple lines when embroidering words and get the space and the word to move down to the next line?

If I understand your question correctly, make sure that when you select multiple lines to copy and then paste that you select the entire lines. When you go to paste your multiple lines, make sure that your cursor is at the front of the line you want to move down. When you choose paste, the multiples lines will be inserted appropriately.

-->I have multiple lines here that I want to "embroider" into my document. I will click and drag my mouse from the beginning of these lines of text to the _very_ end of them. <---
and then choose copy (or cut).

This is the line of words that I want to move down to the next line.
^ I need to make sure my cursor is right in front of the "T" in This. I choose Paste and the multiple lines will be inserted above these words.

What application are you using? MS Word?

I hope this answer helps!

When printing multiple copies the font changes to nonsense

Go to printer properties and see whether 'Paper source' has being set to 'Manual feed'.

Then change it to 'Auto Feeder' or 'Auto'.

(Different words might have been used in different printer models instead these words)

This is a suggestion. This might work or might not. Have several papers ready in the Auto tray (usually at the bottom) before printing.

I have a Minolta CS Pro EP 1031 Printer that makes streak marks

Drum cleaning blade has gone bad. Especially true if the streaks seem to get progressively worse as you run multiple copies. In other words run 10 copies. If the last one out is worse than the first one out it is the drum cleaning blade. Cheap part...around $25

HP Deskjet 5150 print is too small

Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.

In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.

Yes Cartridge problem is what causes double imaging 95 % of the time, there is a rubber blade in the drum unit that wears and doesn't clean off old image from drum. Have known this fault to be fuser at times, the way to tell is to get a print to stop half way threw machine by openning door during print, remove cartridge and look at print, you want it to be stop before the fuser(hot bit) but after the drum, image still rubs off if pre fuser and then you can see if defect is present before paper travels threw the fuser, but in your case I think you will find it is not the fuser it is toner cartridge.
