Samsung CLP - 320 Series printer making horizontal lines on the printed page

Printer CLP320_0001.pdfThe Samsung CLP - 320 Series printer has not been used a lot, Probably less than 1000 pages.  It has sat idle for about 5 years.  The sample page show some horizontal lines on the page.  The drum unit does not have any lines on it.

Is there a way to determine if the marks would be on the fuser or the transport from the drum to the fuser

The line has all colours in it. Hence, the problem is one of the components that are common between the colours.

Have a look at the fuser, it may have a dent, caused by sitting idle (although the line does not look like a dent). It is accessible from the rear of the printer. One thing you can try is to print a couple of dozen blank pages; the problem may gradually disappear.

Printers and Scanners

A printer is a peripheral which makes a persistent human readable representation of graphics or text on paper or similar physical media. Traditional printers are being used more for special purposes, like printing photographs or artwork, and are no longer a must-have peripheral; 3D printing has become an area of intense interest, allowing the creation of physical objects. An image scanner is a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting, or an object, and converts it to a digital image. Hand-held scanners, where the device is moved by hand, have evolved from text scanning "wands" to 3D scanners used for industrial design, reverse engineering, test and measurement, orthotics, gaming and other applications.
