Our copier were printing fine and then all of a sudden the copies started coming out very light. It isn't a toner issue because we replaced it with a new one and even tested it with another new one....

It sounds like you need to do preventive maintenance ( cleaning of laser unit, copy optics, replace transfer and everything that is in HP PM KIT )

How do I load ink and toner in hp laserjet 1100

By load the toner, if you mean inserting the toner cartridge.Then i will give you instructions.In laser toner printer, there is toner cartridge, and not ink jet cartridge.In laser toner cartridges, there is a black color toner power and it does have any liquid ink, which ink jet cartridges have.To remove the laser toner cartridge from hp laser jet 1100 printer, its simple.The front door open and old toner cartridge comes out.Just pull the front door towards you.While inserting cartridge.If you have problem, then take note that, sticker side of the cartridge is towards you.On the cartridge there is a rectangle flap, which you hold in your hand.This is meant for holding the cartridge, while removing and inserting cartridge.The stick side will be in your side.There is a green color drum, the drum side will be on opposite site.-------------- Still any problem.Keep updated.But i think that will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

The print on the left side of the page is faint. I have an HP LaserJet 3030. I used the printer's cleaning system, but the problem remains. Any idea how to fix this problem? Thanks

First make sure that the cartridges are OK and have enough toner. (Remove the cartridges and inspect it physically, shake it horizontally so that the toner inside the cartridge is evenly distributed) If it happens even if the cartridge has enough toner or after replacing the toner cartridge, it is most likely be due to dust accumulation at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printers, which partially blocks laser beams and results in faint print. Therefore the printer requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional.

Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

16 toner low

A laser printer needs toner to print, when this runs out the printer will print either blank or very faint images.
You need to replace the toner cartridge with a new one or a re-manufactured toner cartridges. Re-manufactured toner cartridges are cheaper than new toner cartridges for your model printer.

You can get a few more prints out of your toner cartridge by removing the toner cartridge from the printer and giving it a few horizontal shakes then place it back into the printer.

My HP Laserjet 3005 has faint print on the righthand side for at least the first 2". I have fitted a new toner but this has made no difference. Could this be the fuser unit?

If it happens even after replacing the toner cartridge or if you current cartridge has enough toner, it is most likely be due to dust at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printers, which partially blocks laser beams and requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional.

Installed a new toner cartridge to the HP Laser

Yes you must pull it out in order to use the toner cartridge. It is there to protect the toner dispenser component inside the cartridge. You can find how to install/replace toner cartridge printed on the Toner cartridge's carton box.

Faint vertical lines on Samsung ML-2010

Was the toner remanufactured/ compatible?
Sounds to me like the doctor blade in the cartridge is 'gummed' up and not allowing the toner to flow evenly across the Developer roller......try another cartridge

New toner prints very light. No setting changes on printer.

I had a similar problem, it turned out to be a cheap toner cartridge. Replaced it with an HP cartridge and have had any problem since.
