Re: Fuzzy page continious.
Yeah I just read a tip. There seems to be a problem with the wave amp board, I will send you the engineering note. Sometimes though that encoder needs replaced and cleaning is not the total fix. The encoder may need replaced, but I found this also.
I just received this, this morning.
Failed Wave Amp Solution:
Fixed! Did not fix.
Historically blurry print was caused by oil on the drum encoder wheel. This can be caused by the wave amp board. A cracked capacitor on the board causes the wave amp to produce a malformed amplified wave signal to the printhead. This in turn causes the printhead to eject ink at the wrong times, so the prints look blurry.
You can generally distinguish a wave amp problem from an oily drum encoder. The wave amp problem will usually be an infant failure. The printer will start producing blurry prints soon after it is installed and running. With a failed wave amp all prints will be blurry with no improvement. The drum encoder, on the other hand, may produce good prints and then bad prints and then good prints. Blurriness changes depending on how the oil is interfering with the encoder.

Fuzzy print is mostly related to 3 items in your printer. 1 the toner cart. 2 fuser. 3 transfer roller. A fuser replacement is a normal fix for this problem. Check your PM kit status by printing a supplies status page. A PM kit will have a fuser, transfer roller and feed rollers. If the PM level is low ,order and replace kit. If not you may want to get a new fuser
Hi, try putting a little 3 in 1 light oil on the bar thgat the print
head runs on, the 'bale bar' as it is called can get dry and jam, only
put a little oin in 6 or 7 places otherwise, you may end up with oil in
the parer drive mechanism.
If you're getting frequent paper jams, it's usually caused by the feeder motor assembly failing. When the paper is pulled through the printer, if the assembly is failing, it causes the paper to jam and can effect how things are printed. (Sometimes it will go to fast and things will get blurred, sometimes it'll go to slow and text overlaps)
If that sounds like the problem, it's cheaper to replace the printer (can be bought for $50) the it is to repair it ($25 for the motor, $45 for labor to install the motor)
Hi the blurring maybe down to the machine needing a color registration. Press the menu button then press either the up or down arrow to Maintenance press enter or # the using the up down keys again select color registration enter or # then print registration sheet once printed select M Y C or B and input the number that is on the printed sheet that corresponds to the straightest line. Once you have done this exit and try printing.
If that doesn't work then within the driver on the computer under printers and faxes right hand click on the printer select properties. Within properties you will be able to change the graphic mode please try this.
The fuser unit will need changing as they only have a life span there are no benefits to resetting as you will need to change it anyway. If you do not change the fuser then it will break leaving you with a bigger problem.
In your troubleshootine menu, I think it is, on the screen, scroll until you find fix imaging problems, or something like that.
There is one for removing streaks and the other for removing smudges.
I would suggest running both and that should resolve your issue.
I doubt your maintence kit is bad, but I would pull it out and check to see if it is extremelty dirty.
Try those two procedures first.
There will be instructions on your User Guide CD on how to run those.
