You aren't fusing (melting) the toner to the paper. The probable cause for this is having the "envelope feed" levers in the "envelope", or up, position. This leaves a wider path for the paper, which does not allow the toner to be fused onto the paper properly.
The envelope feed levers are the two small green levers at the rear of the printer, one on each side, that are visible when the printer's top is lifted.

What is the amount of magnetic Powder to be developed in the Fuser Section?


None. It is electrostatic attraction.
It varies from each type of laser printer.
Most printers will specify a total number of pages printed from a laser toner cartridge rather than give an actual amount of toner per page. Which I feel would be more likely to be an average value.
Due to the amount of toner being used per page varying on the number of actual pixels that are required - a black dot or a color dot. If a colour dot is required Three toner colors may be involved to get the color required. Where there is a white dot no toner is required.
It really depends on what image is being rendered onto the paper on each different page image print onto the paper.
Color photos use more toner as more of the page is color than when using black and white !

Why i get black streaks on paper in laser printer prints?


there are some possibilities for this problem. i will explain it. 1) First of all check out if the toner is full ,half or near to empty. There is no exact procedure to check the powder left in the toner without opening the toner.but in one toner there comes about near to 1500 copies.if you have got about 1200 to 1300 copies.then its quite possible that the power left is near to empty so the streaks comes on the paper due to less powder left.many times in this case removing and shaking the toner then reinserting the toner again and checking the printout helps. 2) But if you are sure that toner is not empty then other possibility is.in the toner cartridge there is a aluminium drum.its easily seen in the cartridge.once you remove the cartridge. if that drum is got very much used then due to that drum the streaks appear.fox example.if the drum is new the print is very dark.if the drum gets old the print gets very light or with streaks or faded print. 3) Now if drum and toner powder both are proper and still the problem then its the fault in the printer.in your printer there is some toner powder got spilled out on the inner parts from where the printing paper passes.so when the paper passes from the part where the powder is fallen or got collected then the streaks comes.in this case the printer needs internal cleaning and servicing. 4) but in some cases it has been noticed that internal powder of the toner becomes moist and very hard to come out from the toner for printing.in this case either toner needs to be refilled or toner needs to be replaced.you can get the toner refilled from local cartridge refilling store or local stationery shops dealing in cartridge refillings.The cartridge refilling shops also have the same printer for checking the cartridge.so at the refilling shop it will be confirmed whether the fault is in cartridge or printer.
This will help. Thanks .

Ink not dry when printing photographs


Download the proper drivers from hp.com - DON"T use standard Windows drivers.

When you have the proper drivers installed, you will find an "Advanced" tab in your "Printing Preferences" where you can set "Ink Volume" and "Dry Time".
Try using less ink and a longer dry time.

Also, make sure you're using photopaper that is designed for "INK JET PRINTERS".
(Laser Jet paper won't work).

Any photo that you print on glossy/semi-gloss paper will be wet as it emerges from the printer (especially ones requiring lots of ink).

You could manualy "catch" each one and set aside to dry, which should only take a minute or two.

Professional printers use a special drying powder and timed spray rig when printing on coated cover stock and glossy materials.
