Not with a cloth or blowing the toner.
Try to print a banch of blanck pages. Maybe that will do the work.

How to replace hp laserjet p2015d drum

The drum is part of the toner-cartridge, so when replacing the toner-cartridge, you are also replacing the drum.

Solution - Change cartridge :)

HP Laserjet P2015 serires Could you advise me on how to get rid of a black line appearing down the centre of the page when I print please? Thank you.

Dirty print out is basically due to cartridge related issues. HP Laserjet P2015 uses HP53A Cartridge.Take out the cartridge and inspect it under torch light. You would notice the line(s) on the green drum. Gently clean its drum/ (green roller) with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth. The drum is located under a cover which can slide with a little push. Checkout for any spilled toner inside the printer and clean it also. Print a few pages so that the parts get further cleaned. I think, this would solve the issue.
Please note that, this step may help temporarily, if the cartridge and its parts are worn out. In that case it is always better to replace the toner cartridge.

Moreover, streaks (thicker lines) and dots etc indicate faulty PCR Roller which is located just behind the green drum inside the cartridge. Try to clean it too. It requires a bit of improvisation because it is difficult to clean it fully. If the problem persists, replace the toner cartridge with a genuine one or get the PCR Roller changed by a professional. If the cartridge is old

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Hp laserjet 1000 series - installed new cartridge now a line prints every 3 inches on every copy

You have a bad toner cartridge.
Did you have the line with the original cartridge?
A line every 3" is the diameter of the toner drum.

Is there a way to clean the drum on the HP laserjet p3005n The toner and drum are one unit.

You don't want to clean the drum. It is done automatically as the drum rotates. The cleaning blade scrapes the residual toner off of the drum.

If the drum is not getting clean then you have to replace the cartridge.

I have an HP color laserjet 2840 and just replace the drum not long ago, maybe back in the spring, and changed all the colour cartridges in the summer, now it's saying to replace the drum again, the...

The HP Color Laserjet 2840 Is a Very Good Reliable Printer. I'm curious if you are buying American made components or cheap components from some thrid world country sold at ahuge retailer. They really should stand behind their laser drums, but if they don't then shop over at or and Purchase American Made Toner Cartridges and Laser Drums. Office Inks has a 1 year satisfaction and quality guarantee and free return shipping if their ink, toner, drums, ribbons etc, don't make you happy. Only Ships USA Though.

How to clean my HP 2430 HP laserjet drum

Please help by clarifying what part you are calling a drum.

If it is the drum in the toner cartridge, then there is 50/50 chance of cleaning it successfully with alcohol and a very soft cloth,
perhaps a qtip dipped in it. If this doesnot do it then you should just repalce the toner cartidge which houses the drum.

If it is the FUSER then you will have to just replace the fuser. Sometime the fuser is reffered to as the drum by some

Getting extra characters printed on paper from previous run

Asside from removing the toner cartridge and using a lint-free cloth or tissue to remove toner residue (or possibly using a can of compressed air to blow it out) there isn't much to be done to clean it. If you are getting ghosted images from a prevous page, your toner cartridge may be defective.

If you are using a refurbished or re-manufactured toner cartridge this would not surprise me. The only remanufactured toner company my clients have had any success with is Rhinotek, but i recommend sticking with the HP cartridge. Also if it is an older cartridge and infreaquently used it may still need to be replaced. If replacing the toner doesn't fix the problem after several test prints, then it is possible that the fuser is bad... in which case it's time for a new printer since the fuser is not replaceable.
