Question about HP LaserJet 1300 Printer
My printer is have a smudge down the center right of the page and it has some ghosting. I have cleaned and cleaned and it still is doing it. what do I do?
Sorry to say but it does sound like the fuser. you may not necesarily have to replace it. it could just need a good cleaning on the fuser rollers. it is best to let a repair man do it. if you want to try make sure fuser is cool. be very careful not to scratch the coating and do not touch roller surface with your fingers. Sorry I can't think of a home cleaner to use, you could try isopropyl alchohol. but I am sure you will find an image baked onto the upper roller will will need to be cleaned off.

I remember the days of my youth when I used a barrel printer with the nastiest process you can imagine, making copies at the YMCA in Baytown TX. I now have a HP LaserJet 3600n that I had the same center smudge issues,.. when I print post cards and flyers for my real estate business in Tarrant County. SOLUTION: (doesn't COMPLETELY remove the smudge,...but 95% better!!) I drove to Wally World and purchased a bottle of 92% alcohol,...yes in the drug & deoderant area. Cost,..$1. Very carefully pull the front door back and you'll be able to see the build-up on the black film. Small amount of alcohol on a pure cotton ball with gentle force make small strokes to clean and two dry cotton balls to wipe the film from one edge across to the other. Make sure you look at the film from an angle to see the reflection of the areas that may need an additional touch up. print one page,...repeat the process to get the back half of the film. If you need help in real estate,...tarrantcntyhomes dot c0m.

Unfortunatly it is the fuser unit that is causing this problem. you will only ever get ghosting from a fuser though if you feel up to it you can save some money by just replacing the fuser sleve instead of the whole unit. Hope this helps Cops Pete@wedotoners.com

If you replaced the cartridge and does the same thing then it is the fuser. The fixing assembly does not need to be entirely replaced you can first clean the black teflon film with laquer thinner or just order just the fixing film, which is the heater element. HP parts are much more expensive than Canon parts. FYI the HP printers are made by Canon.

Very nice trouble shooting. The image defect you describe point to the OPC or drum unit this is essentially the toner cart. In your case black. Measureing the distance between repetitive defects is a sure way of diagnosing problems such as yours. Again nice work.
Google repetitive defect ruler for your model to help in the future.
Hope this helps
