Toner is skipping in same part of the page

An area about 1/8th inch to 1/4 inch either doesn't pring or is very light. It goes the entire length of the page. All of the cartridges have just been replaced so that isn't the problem I don't think.

Re: Toner is skipping in same part of the page

You may simply have some toner dust on the laser lens cover. Take out the bit with the green handle and look inside. There's a glass piece about 4 inches (100 mms) by 1/2 inch (12mm) which easily gets dirty. Carefully wipe with a clean soft cloth.

Probably you got some toner dropping on it when you removed the old cartridges.

This is most likely a transfer belt problem.

Black lines going straight across paper. 1 every inch down

If the streaks are narrow black and run the entire length of the page, replace the soft plastic wiper blade on the drum (and hope the drum is not scratched). Black smudges are related to the toner/developer purity. Replace both.

Run the 1/2 print test.
Print a few pages that have failed previously and as the printer is printing open the cartridge cover(top cover).
Pull out the cartridge and look at the paper down below. If the page looks good, you probably need a new fuser. If the page is messed up you could have a bad transfer roller or another bad toner cartridge.

Hp 4300 laserjet. All printouts have a blank space

Remove the toner and wipe the small window that's above where the drum unit sits inside. That window gets covered with toner and makes light prints and blank areas.

Skipped Print Areas on Printouts

You may have a bad toner cartridge, if the cartridge has contaminants in it, it will not put toner on the drum in these areas, Try removing and giving the cartridge a good shake, try installing a new or at least another cartridge to see if the problem is here.

Hope this is of some help.

HP Laserjet 5P shading edges of page

This is probably due to a defective cartridge, Charge Roller or Transfer roller.

Check the cartridge for a band of toner still on the drum.

Check the Charge roller for oil or smudges, this roller should be a lighter color and should be relatively free of toner or marks.

Same as the Transfer Roll, which will be dark, though excess toner should be evident.

A relatively smooth straight line is generally the cartridge.

A rather wavey or broken line is most likely the rollers.

You can however attempt to print a large amount of pages (25-50) in an attempt to clean the parts, however if either part is defective they will need to be replaced and no manner of printing will clean them.

The drum unit may need to have the toner collection blade replaced. not the cleaning blade for the drum but the one below it that catches the toner cleaned off the drum. if this blade is old or damaged it losses its seal to the drum and drops tiny specks of toner onto the page.
Hope this helps...

Are you using Genuine HP cartridges?

Cause from the sounds of things, youre having cartridge problems, Cyan is faulty "blue background" replace with gen. If the black is recycled/non HP then that will be your ladder problem too., If you are in fact using HP let me know and I will tell you how to isolate your fault further ie you have a fuser or transfer belt fault.
