Either a bad cartridge or your fuser has failed. Remove the cartridge and look at the green/blue drum on the bottom. If it has a matching stripe on it then likely a different cartridge will solve the issue. Also examine the inside of the printer to see if there is evidence of spilled toner. If the cartridge does not have that defect then it is possible the fuser has failed. Can you post a sample?

If you find the information provided useful or solves your problems, help other users find the solution easier by giving kudos and marking my post as an accepted solution.

What is the fuser?  I just replaced the cartridge.  The problem also occurred with the other one.
