Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer

Brother HL-5250DN When I print using laser checks, the check prints correctly, but it also prints a shadow image of the check. It's like the image is stained on the roller bar or something.

When printing a new page I get a "shadow like"


Clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Performing up to 6 cleaning cycles is not uncommon if the print heads are severly clogged.

Hope this helps.

Apparently there is a bug that HP is not fixing. Following is not a solution, only HP can solve this problem but a "workaround" for the time being, allowing you to print the file as image. Keep in mind that the printing will take longer time, because the file is output as bitmap, and that this way of printing it's not good enough for color proofing of any sort.

Check in the specific software Print dialog window, if you can print the file as image. Sometimes the controls are in the advanced options. In Acrobat, check the box for Discolored Background Correction in the PostScript tab of the Print dialog window, and if that doesn't help, check Print as Image check box.

The black print jobs have a shadow about 3 inches down the page

I had replaced the fuser - no improvement. I removed the fuser, imaging unit & transfer roller. CAREFULLY using a vacuum cleaner I cleaned all units and the internals of the printer, rotating the roller on the imaging unit to clean all parts. (Warning Place Imaging unit on paper as toner escapes) After a few test prints the page cleared and duplicate ghosting cleared.
