There are four main causes of dull printing:

Canon MF3010 – paper stuck or not captured
When the printer jams sheets of paper, it is necessary to stop the printing process and carefully get the crumpled page. Using tweezers or other improvised tools, remove pieces of stuck paper from the printing path, if any. Follow these steps:
- plough the sheets of paper in the tray;
- check the pages for curved corners;
- make sure that the paper density does not exceed 163 g/m2, but not less than 60 g/m2;
- choose the right media format.
Try printing the page again. When re-jamming, perform a partial disassembly of the Canon MF3010, inspect the printing path for the presence of extraneous things. As a rule, it can be paper clips, buttons, stapler staples, and other stationery garbage. If there are no foreign objects inside the printer, inspect the paper capture rollers. The smooth, bald surface of the rubber roller indicates wear. For this reason, the Canon MF3010 does not grab the paper or hijack it. Snap off the retainers and change the roller.
