    i believe it is due to buying cheap toner cartridge-shook up the old one and reinstalled. also is there a drum cleaner blade and would it be mounted in the toner cartridge? the reason i ask is because with the old cartridge i was also getting what looked like toner deposit(strip of toner)all the way down the left side of the sheet,but after installing the new toner cartridge(the one that is showing the most image void)i went back to the old one and the strip of toner has been cleaned up.(is gone)this is on a HP LJ 5P

Most toner PIRATES just drill and fill recycled carts without changing the drum or blade.

Printer is saying black toner is out but i just replaced it with a brand new one from Staples


I've been having this problem and it turns out (and here's that bit that makes me look stupid) that I had been supplied with the imaging unit and not the toner cartridge so you may wish to check you've changed what it is you think you've changed. Toner carts are the top row, image units the middle and waste on the bottom.)

I have a Samsung CLX-3160FN multi-function color laser printer. It recently started to print poorly in black (that's what I mostly print). Geniune Samsung toner carts are installed. The black is at 76%. I...


If the black toner prints like the image below with alternating bands of light and dark printing, the problem lies with your imaging unit.13911cf.jpg Specifically the developer blades in the imaging unit has toner build up on the blades. The more you use a particular color, the more it builds up to the point that it exhibits itself as faded images on the paper.

It can be fixed by replacing the imaging unit for $100+, but it will reappear again after sometime. Or you can fix the problem yourself and save yourself $100. You will need to open the imaging unit and clean the blades. I have a description on how to do this in my tips section. Or your can click on this link, http://www.fixya.com/support/r4120906-clean_developer_blades_samsung_clp_300. Hopes this helps you.

Cartridge is defective. I suspect it was a 'compatible' or remanufactured unit vs. an original. Replace it and it will work fine.

The document prints but leaves ghost images on the page also


A laserjet is different than a inkjet.
Ghosting is either the toner or the fuser:

This is the test to determine toner or fuser issue.
Print a test page
When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top to stop the machine
Remove the toner cart.
You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser)
If you can see the smudge or marks on the page the problem is most likely the cartridge but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.
Hope this helps

I have black vertical lines


Hi,

Black vertical lines could either be a scratch on the drum or a dirty charging corona wire. Order a new drum and clean the Corona with a brush. Image of Corona This should resolve the issue.

Ghost images


Is it from the most recently printed page, or is it the same image avery time regardless of what you print? It sounds like your drum or roller (I'm not sure about the exqact term in english) might be the issue. Have you somehow managed to "force" a printing without paper in the printer?
