Recommended troubleshooting

Inspect the overall paper path, especially the transfer roll, for signs of spilled toner. A transfer roll contaminated with toner can cause toner to transfer to the back of pages. Gently clean the contaminated areas with a soft cloth.

If the defect persists even when the paper path is clear of toner contamination, contact Lexmark Technical Support to set up service for the printer.
