Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My HP 4 ml LaserJet printer is leaving a trail of toner along the edges of every page it prints. The printer is a great workhorse that is as old as the hills...okay, maybe 15 to 18 years old. What do I need to clean and how do I do it? Also, it's making a rotational squeaking sound as the pages come out of the printer. Is there something I need to lubricate? Thanks!

    what is a cartridge wiper blade? how do i replace the existing one? what does "screwed" refer to?

    i prefer not to replace the printer if i can fix it for a reasonable amount. new machines aren't made as well and the cartridges don't last nearly as long...

I have an old workhorse that has never had problems. HP Laserjet 5 - printing a shadow down the left side of page. Advice?

Check for wear, damage or scratches on the drum. Try wiping the drum very gently with a very soft dry cloth. Never use any solvent or chemicals on the drum. If any damage or marls are seen on the drum, or there is a slight build-up of toner on the edge of the drum, you will have to replace the toner cartridge/drum assembly.

My hp 3600n printer has large yellow patches all along the edge of documents, any ideas?

Try replacing the yellow toner, if you have an old one try it and see if the problem goes away after 3-4 pages to make sure the belt got cleaned.

HP P3005 - skid marks along paper's edge

Print 3 pages. Use the manual feed tray. As they print, open the cover, remove the toner and look down at the paper in the printer. Do you see marks along the edge? If no...replace the fuser. If could be the transfer roller.
