    Sounds like a fusing unit issue.

    The paper weight settings may be wrong.

    This is a symptom which was observed on early model transfer belts before the material was changed. When outputting the same image over and over there would be ghosting of actual image without background due to poor transfer belt cleaning.


    OEM Toner and Belt?

    I like the idea of changing the media type settings to heavier stock and you might try turning on MM335 and bump the page interval up a couple steps to see if that reduces the load on the belt.

    I find that series to be very picky to power. If you cannot find a resolution, try moving to another outlet. Be sure it is a clean outlet. Try it there and see if it clears up. Hope that helps.

    We have solved this by putting the paper trays to 24lb.
