Question about HP LaserJet 1022 Printer

1 Answer

Uneven print quality in line of text

Even when this printer was new it would overprint a portion the text so that a section of a line looks like a really extreme version of BOLD and the rest is normal. This will continue part way down the page, and then everthing will print normally. HP claimed this was due to an electrical build up in the fuser and advised unplugging the printer and waiting for few minutes for the charge to dissipate. Also the problem could be lessend by plugging directly into a wall outlet. I have followed both suggestions, but the problem is occuring with greater frequency and has become a pain in the... Does anyone know of a permanent fix (besides tossing the thing and getting a reputable printer).

    The print quality of my HP LaserJet 1022 is very erratic. From the very start, it sometimes prints very unevenly, so that the first and last six centimeters (about 2 1/2 inches) look bold and somewhat smeared. I'm a translator and it's unbelievably annoying when I have to print out work for a client.
    In desperation, I changed the cartridge, even though it wasn't really necessary, but it didn't help. Definitely a printer issue.
    I'm grateful for any help I can get.

Samsung clx 3185 printing is all faded, colors and black


When you go to print, your printer driver should have quality options. Make sure you're not using "economy" or "draft" mode. Try "quality" mode.

If the toner isnt burned on paper it means that you have to change fixing roller bushings and fixing roller.
Because you have uneven pressure between fixing and press roller

Refilled my 56/57 ink cartridges on my 1210 all in one printer and even after aligning and cleaning it still has lines in it and is not the quality i need at all.


In that case, you better consider to but a new Genuine Cartridge, because it seems that some portion of your Cartridge nozzle got damaged.

If you still want to carry on with this refilled cartridge then try to print with Best Quality option enabled

Start >> Control Panel >> Printers and Faxes >> Select your printer and Right click then select Printing Preference . Here you can change print quality

Canon MP510 prints uneven lines.


I assume that you've cleaned the nozzles and alignment utility.  Try wiping the carriage bar with a lint free cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol. Also, the paper feed rollers may have collected some "goo" and should be cleaned with the rubbing alcohol. This should clear the problem.

Rimage Everest III printing quality issues


Hi Jay, do you have any idea how many discs have been printed with this Everest Printer?

Your issue sounds like a hardware error, not an issue with the software you are printing from. Most likely the printhead needs to be replaced, or the control board. Printhead replacement costs approx $1200.

Print quality problems


First off replace the ink cartridge.
then look into the menus of the printer and perform the head cleaning procedure.
Most of the time what you are describing is simply a cartridge out of ink and not showing empty
