Hp color laser jet 1600

If you can rub off the colors easily with your finger then it is the fuser wire. Maybe the high voltage isn't enough to pull the toner to the drum. It's not something you can fix. Needs to go into a repair shop.

Faulty cartride or fuser causes ghoost image in print outs. Primary level:check with another cartridge. Secondry level: Remove fuser assm out, check teflon sleeve surface deposited with toner?. replace teflon sleeve if available if not replace fuser assm. In fuser modes we can increase/decrese the temparature of fuser.
Note: only service engineer can replace the teflon sleeve.. user not advisable

Verticle lines printing on laser printer

Check the fuser. If it is the fuser, you should be seeing 3 dark lines on the fuser film. Here is the picture about how the film looks like:

Changing the film usually solve the problem. However changing the film itself is difficult. You have to remove and basically disasseble the fuser, and change the film. However it is fairly cheap and if you decide you would like to save some money, here is the link available in ebay:

Or, simply search for 'P3005 Fuser Film' and you will find a lot.

Other than that, you can change the entire fuser. Please note that fuser for P3005 is not consumer installable part. You still have to take out some parts in order to change the fuser.

The parts are available from many parts supplier. Simply google 'P3005 fuser'. Usually around $100 for a refurbished fuser.

You can also recycle your old fuser and get some moeny! (about $15-$25 per fuser).

Good luck!

My MFC-7820n was printing perfectly and now, suddenly, all pages are very light and most toner doesn't seem to be fusing to the paper. The page 'sort of' prints but it's illegible. I have installed a new...

If the toner is not getting completely fused to the paper (i.e. you can rub it off with your fingers either completely or partially), then there is something wrong in the fuser section. The fuser is nothing more than two rolls pressed together with heat lamps inside (usually just one roll has a lamp). Perhaps a spring fell off? or the lamp is burned out.

HP LASERJET 3330 printing quality is poor (on & off problem). It's double printing,scattered ink, and barely printing other times. I tried a new ink cartridge, replace the pick-up roller, and did some...


Based on the steps you've already taken, it sounds like you need to replace the fuser unit. The fuser is what melts the toner to the paper and over time it wears out. Some service techs call it "ghosting", when it seems like it reprints a image. Check your local repair companies and tell them you need to replace the fuser, the part number is RG9-1493-000CN. This part isn't something that can be easily changed out, it involves removing the top scanner and other components. Let me know if there is anything else you need.

Ghost printing

Hi Phillip,
If you have changed the drum and toner, then check the fuser unit. The teflon coating on fuser film could be worn.
