Ghosting is caused by a failing transfer belt assembly. The transfer belt is how the printer moves the image from the colored toner cartridges to the paper. The surface has a special organic that allows the toner to be picked up and is transferred to the paper but when it gets worn down some of the toner stays on the transfer belt which causes the ghosting of the previous image. The transfer belt assembly is user replaceable and looks just like a big toner cartridge. You can get them from Office Depot or Amazon.com as well as almost any place you can get the toner for the unit. Here is a link to Amazon.com
The white plastic lever has broken and needs replacement. On the bottom left hand side bracket of the Transfer kit to it's left is a black plastic cover which pops off remove it and you will see a white plastic
lever which pivots on a bar with the transfer kit locking and unlocking the toner cartridges it often goes bad and tears. Hp should modify this and make this piece metal not plastic. You can manually pull and push down on the metal bar to lock unlock the toner cartridges for a temporary fix.
