Question about HP LaserJet 3200m All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Black lines on every copy

Hello-I work for a non-profit with old but still functional equipment.  My hp laserjet 3200m printer is leaving tracks on every copy.  At first it was four horizontal lines (spaced about 3 inches apart) now it also includes a long sort of tire track an inch wide and along the left hand edge of the page from top to bottom.  Is this an issue of cleaning something, or do you think it's something else?  
Thanks, Jean

Good morning Jean,
A mark that is three inches apart can either be the drum, which is part of your toner cartridge, or the fixing assembly, which heats the toner and makes it stick to the paper. With both problems you are describing it could be either of these. The easiest way to figure out which it could be would be to replace your toner and see if the problem persists or if the machine is fixed. If you rub you finger on the left side of the page where the problem is does the toner rub off? If this happens then the fixing assy needs to be replaced. It could also be a combination of both problems. If you replace the toner it could fix part of the problem or vice versa.
Hope this helps

When printing from the HP color laserjet 4600DN, its leaving tracking lines in the middle of the page. Any suggestions on how to fix this?


Hello, track lines could be caused by a number of components within the printer.

Is it any specific color? Yes - Change the toner of the color causing the lines.
open the front main door, Inspect the ETB for damage. Inspect the fuser for damage. If any component shows damage it will need to be replaced.

Hello,
This is usually caused by something on the scanner glass. Check for dried ink or correction fluid on the scanner glass. We have a short article about solving this type of issue posted here: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/lines-on-scanned-or-copies-pages/

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

I want to know is there any option in network printer hp 3055 that how much copy is taken from individual user


This machine has no function for tracking copies. It DOES have a billing function for tracking faxes sent. I believe it is on page 88 of your operations manual.

Printer is refusing to print colour, with full colour ink tank.


Have you checked the ink levels in your cartridges? Ink can dry due to usage and also due to prolonged non usage.
