HP laserjet 3030 black streaks

My HP laserprinter always printed/copied with a light black streak evey few inches in the background, but now it got much worse darker and thicker and makes the pages unreadable. The streak goes horizontally across the paper as if coming from the roller, but when I take the cartridge out and look at the visible roller and wipe it, it appears clean. Is their a user's way to approach/correct this problem?

    The defect repeats just over every 1.5", so it falls closest to Print Cartridge 1.48" and also Fuser(Fixer Assembly what's that?) at 1.61" so with that information, now what?? Still how do I fix it.

You have useful help if you measure the distance between the defects. If the lines are repetive, use this link http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=378048&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=378048&objectID=c00063561

Why when I select color copy on HP Deskjet 3050 J610, it prints with a blue background?


The issue is from the glass on the copier, it would be better if you clean it very well or possible change.

Scan streaks with HP LaserJet Pro 200 color MFP M276nw


This may not always be the solution, but in my case it was. If you are getting black streaks on your copies, try this first:

The problem is that that there a small piece of glass that the doc feeder use's to scan the original. You will have to clean the small glass it's about a half of a inch piece and is normally under the doc feeder unit. It will either be to the right side of the main copy board glass or it is under the doc feed unit where the paper goes down through the feeder. It is mostly some white out or other residue, on the glass, just clean with a monitor wipe or take a cloth & wipe, etc...... Good Luck

I have an hp LaserJet 3015 PCL-6 all in one printer, copier & fax. When I use the copy function, there is a black streak running down the length of the copied paper. I tried replacing the toner...


Clean the thin glass strip that sits to the left of the flat bed glass.

That is the glass used when the ADF is being utilized.
There is dirt on it causing the black streak.

I have a hp 3030 printer and when I replaced the ink cartridge it started making black streaks accross the paper, every 2-3 inches and there is a double image of the picture being copied.


Hi:
After replacing the cartridge it is mandatory that you do a cleaning cycle and head alignment to insure the cartridge is aligned properly for printing.

I have a one inch streak down the middle of my printed page on my HP laserjet 1600 printer


Streaks (thicker lines) indicate faulty PCR Roller which is located behind the green drum inside the cartridge. As the printer has 4 cartiridges, you have to identify the faulty one. You may replace the cartridge or get the PCR Roller changed by a professional.

Let me know if any further clarification is required. Hope this helps!

My hp laserjet 3030 printer has begun printing with grey horizontal streaks over the entire page. Can anyone help with the problem?


Sounds like a bad fuser. To check it out - print a few pages, as the printer prints open the cover(the one that you open to get at the toner).Remove the toner. Look at the page that is facing up. if it has streaks on it - change the toner. If it looks clean, change the fuser.

Printer has set for a while. The print quality is very poor. Black is grey, there are streaks across the page.


Take the cartridge out and shack it side to side a few times to move the toner around and reinstall it.

Yes you can. Just be careful not to force any movement of the scanner lamp. Be gentle. Otherwise you have nothing to fear.
