Print-quality problems associated with toner buildup inside the printer
Over time, toner and other particles can collect inside the printer. This buildup can cause the following print-quality problems:
|●||Marks at even intervals on the printed side of the page|
|●||Toner that smears easily|
|●||Toner specks on the page|
|●||Vertical streaks or bands on the page|
To correct these types of problems, clean the printer. See Cleaning the printer.
To help reduce toner buildup, always configure the media type in the tray to match the media type that you are using. Printing on media that is a different type than the configuration setting can cause excess toner buildup.
