Question about HP LaserJet 1300 Printer
My printouts have a shadow print .everything i print is printed with a duplicate on the same paper in greyish .e.g if it is a picture there are 2 of them .Please help
Two things - Fuser or cartridge - stop print halfway in machine, if fault occurs before paper has gone threw the fuser then it is a faulty cartridge, if print is ok before fuser (the hot bit at rear) but gets doubled up after fuser then the hear roller in fuser are faulty change fuser....but 95 % of the time it is due to dodgy refill cartridge or worn cartridge (the rubber blade inside cartridge fails to apply enough pressure against drum to clean away old image hence duplicating itself onto your nice clean paper! Try a known good cartridge if in doubt..

Tips for a great answer:
Depending on where the problem originates, this could be a bad wiper (cleaning) blade, faulty corona, or incomplete fusing.
It is easy to determine where the problem is located: Interrupt a printout in mid-stride (where part of the paper is between the toner/developer and fuser. If the un-fused image has ghosting, it is a fault in the area of the drum
