Ink On Rollers

[ Edited ]

I searched the forum but didn't see this issue discussed.  I accidentally put an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper in backwards and printed.  It's bad enough I wasted all that ink but the next couple of prints have what appear to be roller marks on the back side of the paper.  Is there any way to wipe this ink off?  I don't see any access to the rollers.

 

I'm also seeing some horizontal banding on the top third of the image that wasn't on the previous print.  Is this likely related to the inky rollers as well?

Re: Ink On Rollers

Hello.

 

Try performing a few roller cleanings from the maintenance options of the printer.

 

Load a single sheet of plain paper in the printer and perform the roller cleaning.  Repeat as necessary.

Re: Ink On Rollers

Thanks for the reply Michael.  Is the banding I mentioned likely linked to the dirty rollers as well?

Hello.

 

Performing the roller cleanings may help with this as well.  It may be possible that there is excess ink on the platen area and it is rubbing off on the incoming edge of the paper.

 

If the issues are persistent, contact our support group at Contact Us.
