Question about HP DeskJet 3550 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Pages are coming out "dirty"

My HP 2200d laser printer has never been serviced. I am able to print, but the pages are coming out "dirty"--the text, photos,etc appear, but there is extra ink on the page--it looks like it could be from print rollers or something. Could you please tell me how my printer should be cleaned and if there are programs that can be downloaded to assist with maintenance. What physical steps should be taken to clean the interior? Thank you very much for your help!

Shadow print from 2200d laser printer


This shadow, or backgrounding, is generally caused by excess debris remaining on the drum. This is mostly caused by the wiper blade not dislodging all the waste toner. You will need to replace the cartridge (C4096A).

If the toner smears after the page comes out of the printer you may need a new fuser. The fuser is the heating unit in the printer and can usually be seen from opening the back door. Check and see if it has a line worn down the same side as the mark on your pages.

Printing black shaded on complete page


I assume you mean the pages are coming out dirty or gary versus white and black text.
change the drum/cartridge, if you get the same results it could be the hi-voltage power supply. most common is the drum.
