My HL2040 printer is printing black vertical lines along the right-hand side of the page, about 3" or so. A month ago I took it apart and cleaned the roller. Still doing it.


If the lines go all the way down the page, check the position of the corona wire cleaner tab (blue or green) at the top front of the drum unit. if not parked fully to one side it will create a solid black lines where it blocks the laser. Otherwise look for some other foreign object (or torn paper piece) that may be blocking the laser from the drum. If the lines are thin and shark, check for scratches on the drum (not repairable without replacing drum). If the lines are uneven thickness but in a pattern that repeats down the page every few inches, then the film on the drum is probably worn or wearing away and the drum needs to be replaced.

Why am I getting vertical Yellow lines on my printing?


It sounds like the laser drum is damaged and not collecting toner correctly. First try cleaning the paper path with laser cleaning paper. If that doesn't sort the problem replace the drums.

HP m410n laserjet pro banding gray vertical lines


the two places to look is transfer roller and the fuser unnit.
i think there is a problem with the transfer roller it is under the toner and it needs to be spring loaded. The paper passes between the toner an the transfer roller to charge the paper en let the toner stick to the paper and if it doesn't make correct contact then it wont work

Vertical Thick Lines accross papaer on a HP Laserjet 3330


So the "White lines" went away when you replaced the cartridge, and now you have "dark Lines"?
It sounds to me like you have yet another bad cartridge. Is it remanufactured/ compatible?
Although, they can perform very well, they can also be awful depending on the source.
Return it and get another one, or different brand.

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier.

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Please press the "Options" button 10 times. "Cartridges" should now appear in the display screen.
2. Press the "Left Arrow" button once, which then brings you to the "Self-Test" option.
3. Press the "Select" button once. You will hear a series of clicks.
4. It should print out a sheet of paper with horizontal color and black lines and smaller vertical lines.

You should see text followed by a thick 1-inch black bar. Under this bar, should be a process gray bar about ½-inch thick. Below this line should be a set of railroad like bars of cyan, magenta, and yellow.

Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.

If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

Paper is not feeding through. Keeping getting message that "load paper". But when loaded paper is not being picked up. The meachine is only 2 years old. Olready the roller has been changed. Please advise...


The paper’s weight may be expressed on a different basis than the paper used to rate the printer’s capabilities. For example, a 20-pound bond paper equates to 28 pounds cover and 42 pounds index papers in thickness. The differences among bases stem from the sizes of the large sheets from which the paper was cut. For example, Sharp says, bond paper’s weight is determined by 500 sheets of 17- x 22-inch stock (later sectioned into 8.5- x 11-inch reams), whereas index paper’s weight stems from 500 sheets of 25.5- x 30.5-inch paper.

Match the basis for the weight of the paper to the basis of the printer’s maximum paper weight rating. If the printer was rated on only one basis, such as cover or index, and your paper ****’s wrapper only lists the paper’s weight by another basis, such as bond,

It sounds like there is 12 inch form length (or may be A4) selected on the computer system. The data from the system will take precidence over the 11 form length set on the printer.
If using Windows, ensure the Printing Preferences in the pritner driver are set to 11 form, Also check Printer Properties for a paper size ensure this is set to 11 inch
On the 'System' check the paper size selected within the application (if available) Check this is set to 11 inch form length
Check document margins to ensure these are not reducing the 'printable area' on the page. If availabe to a Print Preview on system to see what the document looks like.

If your application outputs raw data to the printer, check the number of lines per page assming printing at 6 lines per inch you can fit 66 lines on an 11 form. Check no more than 66 lines are per page, it sounds like 72 might be being sent befor a Form Feed in the data. (there may be a 1 line top margin set on the printer)

Finaly check the top margin setting on the printer to ensure it is set to 0 so you have the full 66 lines available on a page on the printer I think you would be looking to set the FORM ADJUST to 0 to adjust the top margin
