Question about HP LaserJet 1200n Printer

Hp laserjet 1200 series streaks down right side of page

My printer is making ink spots and some letters are not printing fully on the right side of the page. It is a new ink cartridge. I have been told it might be the fuse. Is that correct and is there anyway for me to replace this on my own? If yes, where do I get the part?

    I bought a brand new cartridge and the problem did not correct itself. The small blotches are 1" right of center and evenly spaced down the page. It is not a continuos streak. It is a blotch or a smear every two inches or so.



    What could this be and how can I fix it?

    How do I replace the fuser? Is it difficult?

    Do I need to clean it first? And where do I buy the part?

  • joannestr Mar 05, 2009

    Where do you buy a fuser? Not having put a fuser in and how difficult would you imagine that it is to put into the printer?

  • joannestr Mar 05, 2009

    Good idea on the service manuel, but where would I buy the part?

It's a bad toner cartridge, trust me.

    The only thing left is the FUSER. The Teflon may be worn off of the rollers causing the toner to stick to them.

    Take off the rear cover and have at it. I personally have never done one on that model.

    cleaning won't work because it is film (mylar) not actually a roller. you will probably have to buy a whole fuser.

    Getting the covers off is always the hardest part.



    You could buy a service manual from eBay.

How do i stop my printer from leaving ink streaks down the right side of my pages?


I was going to suggest removing the fuser and looking at the rollers, but on this printer it's a major operation.
Instead let's run the half test. Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). Print to the printer. When the sheet of paper gets pulled about 3/4 of the way in, open the top cover. Pull out the toner cartridge. Look down at the paper. Does it have a streak down the right side? If yes, replace the toner, if no, have the fuser replaced.

Laserjet 1320 is printing a streak down the left side of the page. I replaced the fuser and toner. What's next?


Checking the paper path for ink deposits might be the solution. I had a similar problem sometime ago, where the fuser got some scratch damage for unknown reasons and i suppose was causing unfused ink to accumulate after the fuser, leaving streaks on paper.

Faded-out streak


check your ink levels. if its the ink that came with the printer it is probable running out of ink. they do not give a full cartridge with printers, only about 3rd full. also try cleaning the heads. and try changing your printer settings/prefrences to less ink, more drytime see if that helps.

Printing problem


That is usually an indication the fuser sleeve is worn out or is torn on that side. Start to print a full page and then open the front when the paper is halfway printed, remove the print cartridge and look at the print on the page. If it is good before going into the fuser then you will need to replace the fuser, which is expensive for that model. It is not available from HP any longer, but some places still sell it.
