I was under the impression that you would answer my question, that did not happen.
You just referred me to my manual!
That does not answer my question.
You also stated a deposit of $5.00 was needed & the balance would only be taken, after you solved my problem,
& after I rate your successful service. As you know this has not happened, but you say you went ahead & took the balance.
You did all this within 3min of starting.
If you can not resolve any of this then you need to return the balance.
Expert:  Michelle replied 2 years ago.
I referred you to the manual so that you could easily see the steps on different kind of print quality issues based on your problem you could try the steps. i also asked you to let me know if you face any problem following the steps however it seems that you understood my response as an incorrect answer.
I will open the question to other experts so they assist you further.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. I need to know what is wrong with the printer... and why you need to clean ink off the drum. Normally the drum is untouchable - too easily harmed or damaged. Under some conditions and errors / breakages, it might be becoming coated with toner/ink... let me know if that is the case, if the drum remains solidly coated with toner.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I described my problem with ink, and re deposit approximately 60 mm latter, only on one side.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 2 years ago.
If ink is sticking to the drum, do not attempt to clean it off.
There is a 'doctor blade' or rubber wiper with a sharpish edge that is held against the drum and normally wipes off any excess toner... it may be defective, or have come loose along that 60 mm you speak of... If it is either corrected, or replaced, the problem may perhaps cease.
(Be sure not to touch the drum, of course, nor expose it to direct lighting for longer than 2 minutes out of every 30, nor dampen it, nor apply chemicals to it, nor abrade it, etc.)
