I just received a color laser printer from a relative that is brand new in the box. It is a Dell 2150CDN and was purchased in 2011.
Today, I opened the box up and set the printer up, and everything works great - except that there is a defect printed on every page - even blank pages, that has me stumped.
There are cleaning procedures within the User/Maintenance menu of the printer, and I have performed all the ones available, but the defect persists.
Here are some images that illustrate the defect:
Can anyone suggest where the defect is being generated and what can be done about it?
