Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

My Hp Laerjet 3015 is producing faded printouts. The whole page is faded. I've just replaced the toner but the problem persists. I've run the test from the HP Toolbox with no success. I've tested teh toner on another 3015 and it works fine. What could it be?

Please try reinstalling your printer driver problem. It could be a driver software problem.

Very bed image on a paper

Print a couple of pages. As the printer is printing open the toner cover. Pull the toner cartridge out and look down at the paper. If the printing looks good the fuser probably needs replacing. Before doing that, have you checked the toner cartridge.

Our copier is copying in light shade. how to make it darker

To adjust the default lighter/darker setting

1. On the LaserJet 3015, press MENU/ENTER.

2. Use the < or the > button to select Copy setup, and then press MENU/ENTER.

3. Use the < or the > button to select Def. Light/Dark, and then press MENU/ENTER.

4. Use the < or the > button to adjust the setting. Move the slider to the left to make all of the

copies lighter than the original, or move the slider to the right to make all of the copies

darker than the original.
5. Press MENU/ENTER to save the selection.

Page 48 of the User Guide has instructions for adjusting the light/dark setting during a copy job.

Also see the Troubleshooting section of the User Guide for other possible reasons for light/faded copies.

If your copies continue to come out too light, you may need to clean the insert a new toner cartridge or change brands of toner. I tried several "generic" toner cartridges and refills, but my prints and copies were always faded or streaky. After going back to genuine HP cartridges, I haven't had any print quality problems.

The mark is not being produced from the toner cartridge or scan mirror. The line is being produced by the Drum unit. You need to replace it.

You can purchase one online or at you local stationery retailer.

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.

Copies come out dirty in spots, text is repeated as background.

I have to ask the obvious? have you removed the seal?
If yes, then it's likely just a defect, especially if it's a compatible / remanufactured cartridge -replace it.

Printout getting fainter magicolor 2300dl

Probably low toner if fading is on black only or a single color. To check levels, MENU (right arrow to Consumable Usage) MENU (right arrow to see each toner cartridge level) Readout may not be accurate, especially if you have changed or removed a toner cartridge.
