HP Laserjet smudges across entire page

I have a HP Laserjet (2200 series) and it prints fine except that there is a light smudge over the entire page. It is not the print job itself that smudges because images and text are crisp underneath the smudge. The smudge has several dark horizontal bands across the page. Do I buy a new toner or what else can I try. I already tried wiping the rollers inside.

More than likely you have a bad toner cartridge.

My HP LaserJet 1300 printer smudges the entire document and the toner is very faint. The cartridge has toner in it.


It means your machine needs cleaning. You can purchase cleaning sheets from the office supply store, and insert it like a regular document, hit print, and the dirt comes off.

Take the toner cartridge out of the printer. Shake it side to side. Reinstall it and print something.
See if that fixes the output.
Could also be the transfer roller.

Horizontal lines and smudges across the page at 1.5" intervals down the page.


Judging from the distance between the lines, you probably have a defective cartridge. Smudges are generally caused by a defective fuser, which means it's time to send the printer out for repair.

This problem is with the fuser. It needs to be replaced. They tend to burn out right in the center leaving a rolling smudge across the page as the unfused toner left on the roller gets printed on the next roll-over.
