Ink flakes off envelopes. No problems with sheets of laser paper.
Try these settings.
Use this item to configures the fuser mode associated
with each media type.
Change the fuser mode only if you are experiencing
problems printing on certain types of media. After you
select a type of paper, you can select a fuser mode
that is available for that type. The available selections
might include some or all of the following modes:
NORMAL: Used for most types of paper.
HIGH 1: Used for rough paper.
LOW: Used for transparencies.
HIGH 2: Used for paper that has a special or rough
The default fuser mode is NORMAL for all print media
types except transparencies (LOW), and rough paper
Do not change the fuser mode for transparencies.
Failure to use the LOW setting while printing
transparencies can result in permanent damage to
the printer and fuser. Always select Transparencies
as the Type in the printer driver and set the tray type
at the printer control panel to TRANSPARENCY.
When selected, RESTORE MODES resets the fuser mode
for each media type back to its default setting.
Hope this helps

Black toner flakes on paper
This could be a couple of things, easiest thing to try first is to put a different toner cartridge in, something that has already been opened because it would save you from opening a new one. Another thing you can try is sending a cleaning page through the printer to clean off excess toner from the fuser unit. What happens is over time toner builds up on the lower pressure roller of the fuser unit and after being heated and cooled so much the toner starts to flake off on your print outs. Follow these steps to try to clean the lower pressure roller:
To run the cleaning page manually
1.If a duplexer is installed, open the rear output bin.
2.Press check mark(SELECT button) or the MENU button to open the menus.
3.Use (UP ARROW button) or (DOWN ARROW button) to scroll to CONFIGURE DEVICE, and then press
4.Use or to scroll to PRINT QUALITY, and then press the check button
5.Use (UP ARROW button) or (DOWN ARROW button) to scroll to CREATE CLEANING PAGE for the(LJ 4200/4300) or PROCESS CLEANING PAGE if you printer is a(LJ 4250/4350) then press the check mark
6.Follow the instructions on the cleaning page to complete the cleaning process (LJ 4200/4300
7.If a duplexer is installed, close the rear output bin.
This should help clear some of the flaking toner, if not you might have to replace the fuser unit.

Hi gerrod12, hope I can help try shutting down the printer and let it sit for like 30 seconds,1) turn it back on and see if it takes care of it. 2) If not the next step is to replace the toner cartridge.. 3) If you still have that error Reconnect the print-cartridge-motor wire-harness on the dc controller PCA (location) J86.... 4) Next is replace the print-cartridge motor and if that doesnt do it 5) you should replace the dc controller PCA...... Try these and let me know if it works ok.... Have a good day!! Brent

HP 4300n prints off the right margin
You possiblely have a font set wrong in your printer. Push the green check button, arrow down to printing, push the check button again, arrow down to PCL and push the green check button again. Arrow down to Font Source, push check button again and check setting, should be internal. Push the left arrow button till you get back to Font Source and down arrow key to Font Number, all ours are set to 3. Left arrow key back to Font Number and down arrow again to Font Point Size, all of ours are set to 12.00. To get back to ready, uset the left arrow key.
If this is all correct, then it has to be in your software.

Hp 4300 laserjet
Does it jam at the fuser when doing a single print?
These machines have a Maintenance kit required every 200 000 prints, these MK's include all feed rollers, a transfer roller and the entire fuser assy. To replace the kit fixes all issues I've seen in these printers besides when the cartridge affects print quality.
If it is jamming at the fuser on a single print done via the printer operations panel, and your paper is fresh, it could only be the feed roller having trouble gripping the paper or the fuser not turning/stuffed.
Feed Kit, I have my doubts as to this being your problem
Maintenance Kit Fixes 98% of the time
Was is noisy before it died?
I have seen a few with stuffed fuser drive gears but not many and customers could hear it wearing.
How many prints since last MK? via keypad print a configuration page, count is there ie pages since last maintenance xxxxxx

Users cannot print to network printer
Thanks for the info that others can print. Helps a lot.
Trying to think which way to head here..
Have you looked at the back of your computer where the ethernet cable plugs in and see if the green light is on next to that port? That would be the most basic thing to check to start.
Can you ping the printer ? If no, have you gone into the print driver and set the port to the proper IP address?
If you can ping the printer, turn off all the firewalls and spyware programs on the computer and try that. Often times firewalls block printers data from sending.
It really sounds like you have an addressing problem.
Find out the printers IP address, start there. Start with pinging to see if the connection actually works.
Once you do that let me know the result and we will move on from there.
