High quality re-manufactured toner cartridges are also available for SP C252DN, which can save a significant amount of printing expenses. However, printers do get hiccup once in a blue moon, such as unwanted lines on paper. The lines are not necessarily caused by the toner cartridges and there often is nothing wrong with the toner cartridges installed. Here are some simple fixes when an user encounter such printing issues without having to spend money on new toner cartridges:

White lines appear on document

The intermediate belt might be dirty. To clean the belt, please follow the steps below:
1. Keep the power turned “on” and open up the top cover of the printer
2. Remove all printer cartridges
3. Close the top cover gently
4. This should prompt the cleaning command. When completed, open up the top cover and insert the printer cartridges back

Horizontals lines appear on document

One possible cause is due to impact on the printer. Try to turn off the printer power first, wait a few minutes, and then turn it back on. Perform the print job again to see if problem persists.

White or color streaks on document

This does mostly associate with toner cartridges. Streaks signal that the toner or toners are almost running out and need to be replaced. If the toner runs out but just a few pages left till the printer job is complete, press the [stop/start] key might get you a few more pages. However, print quality setting can be lowered, but this only acts as a last minute remedy.
