HP Laser Jet 4250, print getting very light in last few months or year. 135K page count, 6 years old, 600 DPI, PCL 5 - Windows Vista HP Cartridge, or compatible cartridge no difference - still light No...

The laser mirror could be dirty, the transfer roller could need changing. Looking at the "print quality" sub menu, the toner density default setting is 3. Up it to 4 or 5. See if that makes a difference. Remove the cartridge and open the covers. Use canned air or an air compressor and blow out the printer.

My boss want to replace the black ink cartridge for one that prints color. Can this be done with the HP 12-a cartridges? HP Laser jet 1022

Unfortunately laser printers don't work this way. The laserjet 1022 was designed for black and white prints only. In order to do color printing with a laser printer you will need to purchase one that is designed to print in color. The laser printers work a bit differently than the inkjets - the laser printers have 4 toner cartridges, one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, that work together to print a full color page. With the old inkjets you could just replace a black cartridge with a color one.

So, short answer: Sorry but no you can't make a laserjet 1022 print in color. :)

I would recommend looking at an entry level color laser printer from hp, such as the CP2025 ( if you are looking into purchasing a color laserjet.

Hope this helps

HP printers - remove and check cartridge. (Use it or lose it)

There is no solution for HP Printers being used very lightly - meaning "not for months" etc.

As a result, if you are stuck in this predicament - an HP inkjet, that you only need every few months - I instead suggest you set a calendar entry for once a week or more and run a test page.

The printer will "hopefully" not dry out by being periodically used - and the ink "wasted" will result in a LONGER cartridge life than if you had to throw out a cartridge.

There is also a time period, or sensing of the cartridge, that results in a wasteful cleaning cycle in which it pumps ink "down the drain", and I'd like to know how often to test print to avoid that.

My solution to my most recent problem was to "give up" and throw a new (black) cartridge on it and take the barely-used one out.

Minolta 2300DL Printer - black streaks

Hey Chuck, Any chance you can post a scan of one of the faulty pages ? This will make it easier to assess the fault. Print off about 10 pages of a page that is affected by the lines. Look at each page and see if you can detect a recurring pattern over any of the pages. If there is a pattern, chances are it is probably the PCU that is marked.
