Remove the drum and clean the glass for the laser lens that is located just below the toners in the middle of the printer.

Our Hp 5550 prints thin vertical black lines on high res images. They are evenly spaced (3cm apart on an A4 print).


This is caused by a damaged drum. The drum is the long metal cylinder inside the toner cartridge. You will have to replace the hold cartridge. You should be able to flip a plastic cover on the toner and see the drum. If it has black toner lines then it usually means the drum is scratched and there for toner fills the scratch and produces lines.
Replace the print cartridge (toner cartridge) and the lines should go away.

My hp laserjet printer print a black page at one side of the paper and the other part its clean..what cause the problem


Depending on what model of printer it is this can be a couple of causes. However they are more often than not caused by a fault somewhere in the cartridge.

The most common cause is a Drum fault in the cartridge. This particular fault is where the Drum has been exposed to Ultraviolet light. If the cartridge is at fault you can prove this by putting in another cartridge and trying again. This can be an empty cartridge as all you are trying to prove is that the cartridge is faulty. It could also be a stripped drum where the coating on the drum has worn or been scraped free from one side of the drum.

Other causes can be a faulty Wiper Blade (Also in the cartridge) this would normally show as a grey panel on the printout rather than solid Black. Faulty PCR also grey rather than solid black.

If it is printing completely blank on one half of the page but completely black on the other when trying to print a solid black page then I would suggest that you have toner settled on one end of the cartridge. Give the cartridge a shake if this is the case to free up the toner.

Black smudges down left side of page


How do I clean white or black spots on printed documents? Description: First make 10 to 15 copies of a blank, white sheet of paper.
If you still see the spots on printed documents after making multiple copies, clean the drum unit as follows:

  1. Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly, and then remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit.
  2. Position the print sample in front of the drum unit so you will know the exact position on the drum that is causing the poor print.
  3. all-ug-19.gif
  4. Turn the black gear on the drum as you check the surface of the OPC drum.
    The OPC drum is photosensitive so do not touch it with your fingers.
  5. all-ug-20.gif
  6. When you find the substance on the drum surface that matches the print sample, gently dab the surface of the OPC drum with a cotton swab that is lightly dampened with isopropyl alcohol.
  7. Note
      • Do not use a scrubbing or wiping motion because this might damage the drum.
        all-ug-21.gif
      • Do not try to clean the surface of the OPC drum with a sharp object, such as a ball-point pen, because this might cause permanent damage to the drum unit.
  8. If the print quality still has not improved you need to install a new drum.

BLACK STRIP ON THE LEFT SIDE ON MY PAPER??? I HAVE A HP LASERJET 1022NW....WE HAVE CLEANED AND BLEW OUT THE PRINTER....STILL NO IMPROVEMENT....WHAT TO DO NEXT....


Run the 1/2 print test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray. Print a few pages of anything. As the paper gets about 3/4 of the way into the printer, open the cartridge door. Pull out the cartridge and look down at the paper. If it has the black stripe on the left side, replace the toner. In fact at this point, pick up the toner cartridge and gently swing the shutter open and look at the drum. You should be able to see a black stripe on it.

By the way, the toner hasn't been fused to the paper at this point. It will rub off on hands and clothes.
If the 1/2 test shows no stripe on the paper...replace the fuser.

Leaving a wide black line in right hand side of transaction


Pop open the fax document feeder, and look for a glass strip about 1cm wide, that runs from left to right across the machine.
You will probably see a few spots of dirt, or more commonly, a blob of white liquid paper stuck on the glass, on the side of the machine that corresponds to the black lines on your fax.
Clean this glass strip gently, using a soft cloth dampened with a mild detergent. I often use diluted windex. You may need to scrape liquid paper gently with your fingernail. Close the cover.

Next, put a blank sheet into the feeder and make a copy of the blank page. If you have cleaned it properly, the copy will be blank as well. If you still have a line, align it with the feeder and use this as a guide to show you where the glass may still have some **** stuck on it.

Good luck!

Left side of page prints blank


Hi there in the paper handling menu check the paper size settings as it maybe as simple as the incorrect paper size has been set in the machine


Hope this works for you
