    guys, I'd think that we need to look outside the box for this one,
    Look at the background trough the magnifying glass, are all colors present within? if yes, than check these:
    Humidity in the room, humidity of the cardstock.
    Electric line printer plugs in to, is it dedicated? Any chance it is ancient wiring and carry "noise"? - get a filter,not a $6 power strip a real power filter if you think electricity may not be clean.
    Let me know if these help.

    I personally don't think it's any of those particularly issues, but glad someone answered

    I have had 4 of these printers now and every single one has developed the same problem in a very short time. I have a small business and have to keep up with orders, so when the fault occurred I just ordered another printer.

    Was actually thinking of getting a completely different printer, someone mentioned switching from 'laser' to the wax ones? A xerox phaser or similar. I wouldn't purchase another OKI everrrrr. But would love to know if the problem can be resolved.

    If it were a cardstock issue, it would happen from first use, but it didn't for me, it happened over time and then got worse till I was unable to send out orders as they were way too messy.

    So, I have 4 OKI printers that all print a grey marbled film when printing on cardstock and now I am seeing the same issue slowly appearing with copier paper.

    I have replaced a fuser in one of the printer and this hasn't changed the issue. Yesterday, I cleaned the fuser and the drum belt.

    I don't think it's a dirty component issue, might be a contaminated component problem, really not sure. But, I'm not putting them in the bin just yet, someone may come up with something.
