Printer making funny noise and print is almost peeling off the page on the right side

Its a H.P Laser jet 3050, been working perfectly, now it is making a funny catching noise and printing a dark line down the right hand side. Also the print on the right hand side is now starting to become unclear and almost peel off. You can actually rub it off with your finger. I have taken the cartridge out, looked inside and found bits of a hard, plastic beige colour???? HELP PLEASE!!!

Your problem is with the fixing film in the fuser assembly (HP Part #RM1-3044). The brown material you see is the plastic film ripping and peeling off of the hheating element.

Hp 1505n laser jet, Makes clicking noises when printing. Slight smear on left side of page.

There are two things that can cause print quality problems and a noises. One being the toner cartridge and the other being the fuser assembly. If you have already replaced the toner cartridge and it did not take care of the problem then the fuser may need to be replaced. You can take it to a local printer repair shop to get it fixed.

I print a publication so I print many copies within a few days. It says Paper Jam in tray area but I can see no paper, it makes a noise and never feeds the paper.

Some Laser printers require the paper to be loaded out of the **** on one side to work well. Flip your paper **** over and try loading the paper upside down. Sounds funny but may fix your issue. Also look at the type of paper you are using your printer may need a thicker or thinner paper (look at the manual). Clean the pickup rollers!

Hi, We have an HP Laser Jet 3050. We keep

The problem is the driver for printing
Here you can get the latest version of drivers for the operating system you have.
Have deleted the old driver from Device Manager - Printer and Faxes (if using XP).
Then reinstall the version you get - the safest try PCL5e version. If you have drivers for printers you do not use them would be better to remove them and on them.

HP laserjet 3050 prints skewed vertically

250-sheet input tray (tray 1)
The input tray holds up to 250 pages of 80 g/m2 or 20 lb paper or fewer pages of heavier media
(25 mm (0.9 inch) or less stack height). Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed
facing down. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side and rear media guides.
NOTE When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the media from the input
tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps to prevent multiple sheets of media
from feeding into the all-in-one, which can cause jams.

Hope this helps if not you may have a registration roller problem.
