Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer

1 Answer

Printing pages dark

My 4plus complete with a duplexer and extra 500 sheet cartridge and jetdirect has slowly started to pring my pages darker and darker.

When I look at the cartridge, the blue roller is covered with toner, it isn't getting cleaned off for some reason.

Is there something wearing out and is it worth replacing?

The cartridge itself needs to be replaced, threre is a blade called the drum cleaning blade which scrapes toner off the Drum(blue roller) it is not cleaning the excess toner.

Here are the instructions for duplex printing.

The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.

The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:

1. Open the printer driver setup window, and check the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab.

2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.

3. Specify Staple Side.

The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.

4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.

5. Click OK.

  2. With a document open, click File > Print.
  3. Click Properties, Preferences, Options, or Setup.
  4. Click the Print Layout tab
  5. From the Duplexing area, select Use Printer Settings from the drop-down box.
  6. Make sure the printmastert_77.jpg light is on.
  7. Click OK to close any printer software dialogs that are open.

Printing on both sides of the paper (duplexing) manually:

  3. Click the Print Layout tab.
  4. From the Duplexing area, select Manual from the drop-down box.

  7. The printer prints the odd-numbered pages and the instruction sheet, which describes how to flip and reload the paper.
  8. Following the instruction sheet, flip and reload the paper with the printed side facing away from you.
  9. The printer then prints the even-numbered pages on the reverse sides of the odd-numbered pages, completing the two-sided sheets.
Note:
  • printmastert_78.jpg button is not functional with a Macintosh operating system. You can print two-sided documents with a Macintosh operating system by using the settings in the Two-Sided menu of the Print dialog.
  • Automatic two-sided printing (duplexing) works only with plain paper in letter and A4 sizes. If you want to print two-sided documents on another size or type of paper, use the manual duplexing method.
  • To return to single-sided printing, make sure the printmastert_79.jpg light is not on.

My scanner just started smearing the first page of a duplex to pdf but when I scan just front of document it doesn't smear it


Hi

Your question is not clear.

Sometimes using technical jargon makes it harder for people to understand each other (this applies to both askers and answerers).

I always advise askers to use normal language as much as possible and answerers to do the same and where jargon is unavoidable, to explain as they go along.

Please post again to clarify what you mean by "..a duplex to pdf..", in normal language not in technical jargon.

A PDF is not a real, physical document. It is a digital document on a computer or a webpage created in PDF format.

A Duplex document is a real document, printed on both sides of each sheet of paper.

If you are trying to scan a multiple page Duplex Document using the Sheet Feeder of your scanner, the ink on the reverse side may be getting caught up in, affecting and/or staining one of the rollers in the Sheet Feeder.

The bottom roller in most non-industrial Scanner Sheet Feeders expects to touch only the plain reverse side of a sheet of paper as it is passed through and turned over to rest on the Platten (scanning surface) of the scanner ready to be scanned.

Multifunction printers with built in scanners and sheet feeders and duplex printing capability are designed in a way that makes them more forgiving of dealing with duplex printed paper.

Duplex printing printed in a laser printer is less likely to cause a problem as long as it is allowed to dry thoroughly. Inkjet printing that is allowed to drry thoroughly should also be okay.

If the scanning is being attempted very soon after printing, then the wetness of the printing may be the problem.

Sheet Feeders that handle duplex printed sheets invariably become stained and need periodic cleaning.

If the document is not too long, you may have to scan it manually, page-by-page.

If the document exists as a PDF somewhere on your computer or on the internet, then it is unclear why you would need to scan it. This is why your question is puzzling.

Post a further comment, if this answer does not help you solve the problem.

I hope this helps.

Canon mx850, paper jams when reloading for two sided copies. once the 1st side is printed the paper is released, recaptured and starts to feed back into the prt. 1/3 into the feed it jams, paper is...


Mel, this is what I found in the online manual:

Set the Ink Drying Wait Time longer.
Doing so gives the time enough to dry the printed surface so that paper curling and ink blots are prevented.

(1) Make sure that the machine is turned on.
(2) Open the printer properties dialog box.
See Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Control Panel.
(3) Click the Maintenance tab and then Custom Settings.
(4) Drag the Ink Drying Wait Time slide bar to set the wait time, and then click Send.
(5) Confirm the message and click OK.


Make sure that the actual size of the paper is suitable for automatic duplex printing.
The sizes of media suitable for automatic duplex printing are A4, Letter, A5, B5, and 5" x 7".
Load paper of suitable size and then press the OK button.
Make sure that the Page Size or Paper size setting matches the actual size of the paper with a size suitable for automatic duplex printing.
First, check the Page Size or Paper size setting in the application software you are printing from.
Then, check the Page Size setting on the Page Setup sheet in the printer properties dialog box (Windows) or the Paper size setting on the Page Setup dialog box (Macintosh).
Note
Depending on the version of the application program, the automatic duplex printing may not be supported.
Make sure that the type of loaded paper is suitable for automatic duplex printing on the Main sheet (Windows) or the Quality & Media sheet on the Print dialog box (Macintosh).
Note
To switch to manual duplex printing, follow the procedure below.

Open the printer properties dialog box, clear the Automatic check box on the Page Setup sheet, and reprint.
When performing manual duplex printing, note the following.
If you are printing three or more pages of a document with manual duplex printing, one side of all sheets of paper will be printed first. Turn over the paper and reload the paper in the machine, and then the reverse side of all sheets of paper will be printed. Be careful not to change the order of paper in the stack.
The procedure for reversing the paper varies depending on the staple side and printing orientation. Follow the on-screen instructions.
