Question about HP LaserJet 1100 Printer

HP Laserjet 1100, band of unprinted area after new toner install

Bought used printer with used cartridge installed. Print was lite but readable. It had a one inch background smudge band running down page, text in that area was darker.After cleaning and printing about 30+ pages, issue finally went away. Finally got to the point text was unreadable. Replaced cartridge with new HP, first it printed a page with smudge in a different location. Then today it printed two pages perfect, then starts printing only text in about 2" column with a smudge in background, the rest of page has faint trace of text only. I rolled cartridge again, same problem. I ran a clean test two times. No change. I put old back in and printed a few pages. Now smudge is worse than before.

    You're suggesting the whole fuser ***'y be replaced, not just the sleeve right?

Replace cartridge on hplaserjet2300dn


Hello!
Thank you for your inquiry.
HP LaserJet 2300dn The HP LaserJet 2300dn printer is the same as the HP LaserJet 2300n printer, except that the printer comes with a built-in duplexer (for automatically printing on both sides of paper).
Here is a link to the user guide that will help help you with a lot of common problems including managing the print cartridge area on beginning on page 68. http://www.avss.ucsb.edu/download/hp2300man.pdf
If this is a new toner cartridge the installation instructions will be included inside the packaging including instructions on eco-sensitive means of disposal of old cartridge.
If this is your first time installation you will find it's very simple.
  • Turn the printer off.
  • Open the top cover.
  • If new - remove any orange tabs labeled remove 1st. If this is a replacement cartridge grab the old toner cartridge by the finger hold indentation and pull up.

CAUTION

To prevent damage to the print cartridge, do not expose it to light for

more than a few minutes.

Be careful not to touch the transfer roller (the black, rubber roller located

underneath the print cartridge). Skin oils on the roller can cause

print-quality problems.


  • Install the new print cartridge. It should slide easily down the guide slots on either side.
  • Close the top cover.

Note:

If the print cartridge is difficult to reinstall, make sure that the registration

plate has been flipped back down into position and that you have

pushed the print cartridge firmly in place.


  • Power the printer back on.

Hope this helps helps. Please keep us updated and remember to rate this answer.
Thanks for using FixYa,

My laserjet printer started making load noises and no longer prints-the last thing printed only printed the top 3inches and then was all black, it then stopped working altogether


Use the following checklist to ensure that the print cartridge is still operable:
  • Ensure that the print cartridge is seated properly.
  • Inspect the print cartridge for remaining toner.
  • Check the expiration date stamped on the print cartridge box.
  • Check the print cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
  • Inspect the print cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
  • Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the print cartridge to see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting and image defects.
  • Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the print cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.

The HP LaserJet 1100 series printer cannot print to the edge of the paper, to get the image to fit into this printable area, slightly reduce the size of the image.

try this and let me know, also check the status of the toner.

When copying or printing, there is a whitish strip down the center where the rollers are. Print in this area is very faint. Thank you for any advice.


Remove the toner cartridge and while keeping relatively level, shake it from side to side. Re-install and try a test print. If the light band has gone away then problem solved. It does mean that your toner crtridge is probably starting to get low on toner. 90% of the time, print quality issues on HP lasers are toner cartridge related.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My hp laserjet 1100 prints but when it does there is a vertical area on the page that doesn't print. What is the problem?


The toner maybe low and not putting enough toner powder onto the drum.
Remove the toner cartridge and give it a shake, make sure the cartridge is shaken in a level position. Replace the cartridge and do a test print.
If it is still a problem then the photo drum in the toner cartridge is probably faulty, then you need a new toner cartridge/drum.

Print smear


It might be the fuser that is defect. perform a half paper path test. Let the paper get pulled in for half of it's length and open the cartridge door so printer stops, check the paper and see if issue is on the out print before passing the fuser. Also check that you have the power cord directly to wall socket and not using an extension cable that may reduce the current to the printer. Another tip can be to change paper type in the printing preferences to a heavier type ex. card stock wich have the printer to work slower.
