Dear,
clean it properly but before cleaning it internally check it by changing the grammage of paper.
check it with high gram paper and then use the lower grammage..

What ginko says is absoloutly right, there is nothing much else that you can do apart from using the printers own software to clean the internals

    If the problem persists after cleaning the printer with the procedure above, then it is probably a faulty toner cartridge or a drum in need of replacement.

    Usually you get rid of this kind of problems by cleaning the printer.

Copier is making very dirty prints and copies have had service man in can't seem to correct problem


That will be the drum cleaning brush. It's job is to remove left-over toner, and clean the surface for the next page. Also, check the toner waste bottle - it may be full.

This can be any of rthe following depending on the position iof the lines on the page. You need to establishe the position of the lines relative to the top of each page and this determines which of the following component will cause the problem

Dirty or damaged developer roller.
Dirty or damaged charging roller.
Dirty or damaged cleaning roller.
Dirty or damaged developer DSD wheels. These wheels are located on the outer ends of the color toner cartridge and appear as a black bushing.
Dirty or damaged transfer roller.

Black marks on the entire page


If the marks look like brushstokes all over the page, then it most likely needs a drum GPR-6. Black marks can be caused by a dirty **** glass (the thin one) as well. the easyest way to tell is if the black lines are only on copies that went through the feeder and not on print jobs, faxes,or copies made off the glass then the **** glass needs cleaned.

Printing


Your print head may be dirty. Remove the ink carts and examine the print heads.

You should also examine the printer for a printer head parking location or cleaning pad (usually off to one side, where the cart sits when not in use or there is a pad on the side to use in cleaning the print head.)

If the print head is dirty, clean it with a soft cloth.
If the landing pad or cleaning pad is dirty from a leak, you may need to remove it or replace it.

Does printing sound normal? It is also possible that worn rollers may cause the page to advance incorrectly.

HP Laserjet 3330 printed dark page especially around the middle


Does this happen both when copying and printing?
For printing solution, try another toner cartridge.
If lines continue to appear when copying (primarily through the automatic feeder) then lift the auto feeder, and clean the glass -mainly the narrow piece on the left side.

please rate solution :)

Copies are printing out light on the top half of page


The developer needs to be changed in your copier. It should be done by a service technician since the the toner developer sensor has to be recalibrated and all developer has to be removed out of the machine including the mag roller. If it isn't done properly the problem will continue.

Scanner leaves three vertical lines on scanned page


Hello,

A dirty glass base can cause ‘spots’ or blemishes to appear on your final printout. Additionally, if you had some sort of opaque liquid that may have transferred on to the glass base from a previous operation. But the majority of the unwanted vertical lines are generally caused by either a dirty or damaged print roller or faulty LEDs in the Scanner Module.

To separate one from the other you have to check the following:

Do you only see the lines with a Scan operation?
Do your print jobs print fine without any unwanted lines?

If you only see the unwanted lines during a Scan operation, then most likely you have a fault/dirty/obstructed LED module.

If you see the unwanted lines with all print operations (Scan, Print and Copy), then you most likely have a worn out, damaged or dirty Print Roller.

Hope this helps…

Sounds like you may need to clean the optics. Open up the area where you insert the original to copy, there you will find a small long glass that needs to be cleaned, I would suspect there is white out on this causing you lines or it may just be dirty.

Hope this helps...
