Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer

1 Answer

Problem with images in lecture notes, come out all solid black.

My lecture notes have some colour in them, but i've noticed that even like a little speech bubble with writing in it with a very very light blue back turns out as a solid black spot when printed. this didn't use to happen, and i've recently bought a new toner cartridge and it's happened before and after.

Sounds like a contrast setting problem from the way you describe it. You might want to check out the following web page at HP.com:

Configure the Printer

Follow the instructions on that page to get to the Properties dialog for the printer (the method differs depending on which Windows operating system you have), then click on the Configure tab. The Print Density slider controls contrast. See if adjusting that slider makes a difference. If that doesn't seem to do the trick, go back into the printer's properties and this time click on the Color Management tab and see if a setting there could be causing this issue.

There are a wide variety of causes of output errors with LaserJets, so if this solution doesn't work, post back your results and either I or someone else will continue to try and help you out.

Good luck.

Is there any way to continue to print in BLACK AND WHITE when he colored ink has run out...((5 of the time I print in B&W


I'm afraid not. Most colour printers print what is known as 4 colour black to give a deeper more solid black, so all the coloured inks as well as black are needed to print a black text or image.

Not printin g all the time & all blue


Without knowing the Model of Printer and any specifics I will try to cover all the bases I can.

If your printer uses a Tri-Colour cartridge and Black Cartridge then it is most likely that either the Magenta in the Tri-Colour cartridge is either Empty or Blocked or the Black cartridge is Empty.

To test this you can take the Tri-Colour and Black Cartridge out of the printer and press the Printhead against a tissue. The Black should be a solid black line approximately a centimeter long by 3 Millimeters wide. The Colour should have three solid lines, one of each colour Cyan, Magenta and Yellow. If either of these is not clear then the cartridge that does not leave clear footprints will either be empty or blocked.

If your HP printer uses seperate ink tanks for each colour then the Printhead may be blocked or the Ink Tanks are empty.

If it is a Laser Printer then there are several possibilities open. The Toner Cartridges are Empty or the Toner Seals have not been removed. If they are still full and the seals are removed then the Imaging Mirrors may be damaged or the Imaging Drum(s) may be damaged.

I hope that helps.

Poor quality black output


There is a defect in the Imaging Unit of these printers....if you replace the imaging unit, the problem of the faded black prints go away. If you have less than 7000 prints, you can call Samsung for a warrantied replacement. The Imaging Unit is supposed to last at least 20,000 prints.

My printer, a Lexmark 1300 series USB printer, will not print in black ink. It has plenty. The ink is proper lexmark ink. It just appears to not be looking at it's black ink cartridge at all as when I put...


Check your printer preferences and be sure that you're printing in the right way. Select grayscale and see what's happen.

Delete all printer pending jobs.
Take out the cartridge, turn off the printer and wait 5 min.
Turn on the printer, insert the cartridge and try again.
If nothing happens, replace the cartridge

Possible to print only black when colour cartridges are empty?


This printer does not let you print if even one of the cartidges is out of ink. I suggest you replace them and then in the printer properties change your settings to the way you want color to be spent.

2 Missing ink black streaks


Check the dev unit for missing lines. Also clean the laser glass with the supplied cleaner pad - though if the problem were caused by toner on the lens, there would be gaps in ALL colours.

Check the dev units first. You can also do a stop test whilst a full colour test image is half way through printing and see if the lines are missing off the image on the PCU as well.
