Issue 1.Wiper blade(cleaning blade) faulty. Wiper blades work is to clean on the surface of the drum. If it is not cleaning properly, vertical lines will appears on print outs.. This is internal part of the cartridge and needs to replace for this issue.
Issue 2. If drum surface(OPC coating) worn out same issue arises, but its easily visible.. If you can replace it or contact refiller

My HL2040 printer is printing black vertical lines along the right-hand side of the page, about 3" or so. A month ago I took it apart and cleaned the roller. Still doing it.


If the lines go all the way down the page, check the position of the corona wire cleaner tab (blue or green) at the top front of the drum unit. if not parked fully to one side it will create a solid black lines where it blocks the laser. Otherwise look for some other foreign object (or torn paper piece) that may be blocking the laser from the drum. If the lines are thin and shark, check for scratches on the drum (not repairable without replacing drum). If the lines are uneven thickness but in a pattern that repeats down the page every few inches, then the film on the drum is probably worn or wearing away and the drum needs to be replaced.

If you have pulled the paper while printing, you might need to re-calibrate the drum. Go to your printer settings and re-calibrate it.

There is a horizontal line grey in color


If this a P2035 printer using a toner cart with a drum in it. The drum has been exposed to light or has a smudge on it. take the cart out and look at the drum. This is a round light blue tube located at the bottom of the cart. It is the drum because it is the only thing in the printer that will print a defect three times on the paper. You could also print about 0 black sheets of paper through the printer and it will go away. This is because the drum coating is in layers like an onion. You must get rid of the exposed layer to get to on that has not been exposed to light.

Hp 2500l prints a dark line horizontal down each page. Can we clean drum at home?


A dark line on the hp 2500 series can come from the drum You can't clean it at home), it can come from a toner cartridge, from the fuser unit and from the optics.
Step one - check if the line in all colors, run copy quality check through Menu and diagnostics, if the line is only on one color your problem is the toner cartridge.
Step two - if the line is on all colors, take the drum unit out and look at the drum, if you see the line on the drum you need to replace the drum unit.
Step three - stop a print in during the printing process by turning the printer off, take out the drum and look at the printed paper under the drum, if the printed page is clear of line your problem is in the fuser.
Good luck.

Two lines are showing up on the paper on all copies and faxes


Hi there. There could be up to three things causing the the lines on your print outs.

1. Toner Cartridge is going bad.
2. Toner drum could be going bad.
3. Your fuser could be going bad.

The one way to test this is to start a print out and as it starts going open the front cover to where your toner cartridge goes in. This will stop the print in its tracks. You might need to do this a couple times to catch the paper in the right area. Pull out the toner cartridge and see if the lines are showing up there. Remove the paper, but be careful though the toner has not been fused to the paper yet and you can get it on your or your clothes. If the lines are showing up then your best bet is to replace the toner cartridge. But if they don't show up then it could be the drum or fuser. Most laser printers have a drum built into the toner cartridge, but there are some with separate drums. The Toner cartridge is the most common cause. Its very rare for a fuser to cause lines but they can go bad and cause a build up on the fuser of toner.

Best of luck...

Solid lines print across the paper


It is usually caused by the drum. The lines are vertical? perhaps the drum was scratched and needs to be replaced.

If you replaced the toner before the lines appears, the printer needs to be cleaned.

Lines down the paper HP 4600DN


This means that the problem is with the toner drum. Just try to clean the drum of the toner with cotton. It is green colored rod in the toner. then try to take the print. If still you get the line while printing please either replace the toner or get the drum replaced from a local vendor

Black line when making copies


A line down a paper on either a printer or scanner is classic sign of scratched drum. The certainty of it is in the fact the line is at the same place each time. Drum needs to be replaced.
