HP Laserjet 4300tn, I just installed a new toner cartridge, and am now seeing smudges of toner on every print job. The smudge is in the same place and looks like a big drop of toner "splashed" down onto the page.

I am guessing it is a defective cartridge, but if someone knows anything different please let me know.

Thanks!

Pull the toner and flipopenthe lid. Spin the the drum with your finger. If there is a problem you will see it on the drum.
It sounds more like a possible fuser problem with a toner blob build up. New toner often makes the problem more evident.
