5x7 inch paper moves towards end of print and black ink smudges edge of paper


Check for any small paper jam. Check the rollers, also use an alcohol swab to clean the rollers and check for ink leaking. Check you ink pad, it could be time for a new one.

Ink smudge on right side of paper


Chances are high that the process of clearing the jam has resulted in ink being released from the cleaning/resting pad area based over on the right hand side (where the printhead sits when not in use).
This waste ink has probable come into contact with the rollers and other parts over on the right edge of the paper.
You'll probably see this ink slowly fade out and disappear over time. If it doesn't however there's something effectively feeding things so check the resting pad for a loose tube, overflow, puddles, etc...
If there's anything like that, report back (preferably with images).

I got smudges when i print ,how can i clean this


It looks like you've managed to get some ink on the rollers. 3 Possible solutions:-

1) Check your printer maintenance menu, there may be a roller cleaning option.

2) Print a document which has printable data on almost all lines, but with empty cartridges. You'd be using a piece of paper more or less as a mop.

3) Final alternative, it getting right into your printer and cleaning it by hand. Printer ink is water soluble so damp cloths/cotton buds should be man enough for the job. The parts you need to concentrate on are the rollers and the small sponge wells underneath where the print cartridges rest.

Smudge on all printed and photocopied sheets


Check the paper path to ensure that there is no spilled toner anywhere.

Take a look at the toner drum and make sure it is clean and there is no toner leaks.

Rotate the drum with a finger (take it out of the printer) and make sure that it is not dameaged or dirty.

4 - black ink smudges (1/32" wide x 1/16" high) in right margin


Very nice trouble shooting. The image defect you describe point to the OPC or drum unit this is essentially the toner cart. In your case black. Measureing the distance between repetitive defects is a sure way of diagnosing problems such as yours. Again nice work.

Google repetitive defect ruler for your model to help in the future.

Hope this helps

Printer has two smudges in same place every time


The reason you see a smudge in the exact same place everytime is due to ink being on the roller. Solution: using good light, use isoprel alchol on a cotton swab to clean the roller. Ink on the roller is also an indication that your head cleaner pad (look really good on the right hand side <inside> for the pad) is dirty. If you've not done so in the past, just flip it over and like magic you have a clean pad...just dirty on the other side.

Black smudges on copies


Hi, try to pull out complete process unit(cartridge) with toner box .You have cleaner(blue or green color) move this cleaner from right to left side 4 or 5 times.Note that cleaner MUST be in home position-right side when you finish.Check print.
If problem still persists, you must do following:take away small grey plastic cap on left side of cartridge,then push complete charge corona(part with cleaner on top of it) to left side just enough to lift right side of corona from cartridge.Pull out that corona and you can see drum and developer roller. Turn the gear on drum,and look for smudges on black developer roller.Try to clean smudges with brush or with dry cloth.Toner will again attract to that area,but regular.
