The cartridge could be bad. Just saw same issue earlier on another HP doing the same. Inspected the fuser and it had a place it the middle that the teflon coating was worn off. Try cartridge first, then look at the fuser with flashlight. Do not stick anything into the fuser. Make sure machine is powered down,unplugged and allow it to cool down before attempting to touch area. It will burn you, they get hot!

Hp laser jet 3015, 7 horizontal lines, with ghost images printing/copying.


Hi:

Ghost images or repetitive image defects can be caused by one of two things. Either your toner cartridge is defective or your fuser is bad. The fuser is the component that heats up and fuses the toner to the paper. To determine which one it is do this. Start to print or copy something and shut off the printer just as the paper is going under the image drum but before it enters the fuser. If the problem you described is evident on the paper at this point then the problem is related to the drum. If the problem is not showing up on the paper at this point then the fuser is the culprit and it most likely would cost more then the unit is worth to repair.

2. replace teflon sleeve if available or replace fuser assembly..

Ghost images of the same printing repeated down the page


Run a half test. While printing a few pages, open the cover, pull out the toner and look down at the paper. If you see the ghost images replace the toner. If you don't see the ghost images, replace the fuser.

PCL XL error in hp laserjet 3055


Hi,
information about the cause:
PCL XL error pages that print from an HP LaserJet 1200, 1300, 2200, 2300, 3200 or 3300 series product when a PCL 6 printer driver is in use typically indicate a communication issue. Sometimes this issue is caused by an incompatibility between the Enhanced XL language and the software application.

You can find the solution for this error here:
(It's a long instruction page, I advise to copy the sections that refere to your OS to a separate document, so you don't miss any step)
URL to HP service page:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=1161389&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1161389&objectID=bpl10637

HP LaserJet 1012 Printer prints ghost images


I ran the hp toolbox "cleaning" mode too and it did not help the problem at all. I still have a dark smear concentrated in the middle of the page, and ghost images repeated lighter all the way down the page.

HP 2600 ghosting


It is a massive pain but a solution that worked for me is to run a 'clean' after every card stock sheet. I know it's wicked awful but it actually worked and I had to run 100 times (one for each good color card stock)
First put plain paper in tray 2
Next
Hit left arrow until you get to 'system service' and press green check
Next
then go to 'clean' and press check
Now it should print a clean image without ghosting
