Michael I have a thick horizontal line that repeats as a Ghost image. Will this help fix it? I have tried cleaning the paper track and the rollers etc, with no such luck.

My printer was many years practically only B&W because of awful colors. This trick helped to restore colors. Thank you!

Step 4: you can also clean the bottom (and not only the top) of the black glossy plastic: it was the root cause of my black lines

Tested with CLX-3185FW

Thanks
