Repeating defects

Note:  Before solving the problem, print the Print Quality Test Pages. From the control panel, navigate to Settings > Troubleshooting > Print Quality Test Pages. For non‑touch‑screen printer models, press to navigate through the settings.


Step 1

  • Using the Print Quality Test Pages, check if the distance between the repeating defects is equal to any of the following:
  • Imaging unit

    • 75.40  mm (2.97  in.)
    • 34.70  mm (1.37  in.)
    • 23.9  mm (0.94  in.)

    Toner cartridge

    • 35.70  mm (1.41  in.)
    • 36.80  mm (1.45  in.)

    Transfer roller

    • 44  mm (1.73  in.)


    • 78.1  mm (3.07  in.)
    • 75.4  mm (2.97  in.)

Does the distance between the repeating defects match any of the measurements?

Go to step 2.

Take note of the distance, and then contact customer support.

Step 2

  1. Replace the supply item that matches the repeating defects distance.

    Note:  If the supply item is a transfer roller or fuser, then contact customer support.

  2. Print the document.

Do the repeating defects appear?

Contact customer support.

The problem is solved.
