Question about HP LaserJet 4p Printer

1 Answer

Printing on my HP 4P Lazerjet produces shading on the left side

Lately when I print, I get a shading on the left side of the paper. I am wondering if this means I have a bad drum or is it something else. The remainder of the sheet is very legible. On the shading, there is also faded typing. I just want to know if the printer can be repaired or is it hopeless.

Most likely you need to put a transfer roller and a fuser in.

Due to wear and tear of teflon paper is strucking off and no proper printing. One inch area in the left side of paper from top to bottom is not printing only black shade is coming please guide me for over...


Most likely you have damaged the Drum/head. Unfortunatly I do not believe that this can be replaced. If it can it is very expensive and can be about the same as the printer pricewise.

After turning on printer, prints initial "blank" sheet


You can fix this by turning off bidirectional support:

- Right click your printer, select properties
- go to the ports tab, uncheck Enable bidirectional support.

Your printer has to be turned on before printing.

That fixed the extra page printing S1M problem for me.

HP Colour HP Lazerjet 2550. Problem when printing.


Your problem is likely a defective drum. Is it new or refurbished? I would take it back to the store where you purchased it and tell them the drum is defective and has been printing spots since it was installed, and was not doing that before.

Re HP Laserjet 4P after inserting envelope to print, upon giving PRINT command, printer will not print and indicates PAPER JAM. However, there is no real paper jam. No problem printing regular 8 1/2 x 11...


Most likely a bad pick up roller these machines will give a jam error if the paper or envelope is not picked up. Try cleaning the roll for the tray you are having the trouble with if the condition improves you have found the problem.
Hope this helps

New toner prints very light. No setting changes on printer.


I had a similar problem, it turned out to be a cheap toner cartridge. Replaced it with an HP cartridge and have had any problem since.

HPLaserjet4P - printer service 50 -


Hi,

A 50 Service error is a fuser error. Turn the printer off for 5 to 10 minutes, then turn it back on. If the error is still there, I think your going to need to make a service call you can try reseating the fuser, but be sure to let the fuser cool completely before touching it.
Good Luck the HP Laserjet 4p is a great printer.

Misalignment messing up paper edge and printing


I would says check the fuser assembly for the folding the paper problem and the text tilting is a scanner/laser issue.

carefully check the paper path for anything blocking the way.

print a test page and open the lid when the paper is inside to stop it, inspect the paper to see if it's folded and also see the image on the paper to see if it's ok before reaching the fuser

hope this helps
