Question about HP Color LaserJet CM3530 Multifunction Printer
Shading covers the entire page except for a small 1/8 " border around the page. At first I thought it was a bad toner cartridge so I replaced it with a new one. That didn't fix the problem so the next thing I tried was to put one of the other color toners (I tried yellow) in the black toner slot and the black in the yellow slot. This time the background shading was yellow instead of black. It seem that whatever cartridge is in the black slot produces the shaded background. Anyone have any suggestion as to what this might be? Thanks for any help Tony

You're right about the cartridge and I suppose cleaning it means all the toner that the generic cartridge dumped. Turn off the machine, take out the cartridge and use a vacuum cleaner and a soft brush to get that extra toner out. After that use a soft cloth (not terry) to wipe down the inside.

This is probably due to a defective cartridge, Charge Roller or Transfer roller.
Check the cartridge for a band of toner still on the drum.
Check the Charge roller for oil or smudges, this roller should be a lighter color and should be relatively free of toner or marks.
Same as the Transfer Roll, which will be dark, though excess toner should be evident.
A relatively smooth straight line is generally the cartridge.
A rather wavey or broken line is most likely the rollers.
You can however attempt to print a large amount of pages (25-50) in an attempt to clean the parts, however if either part is defective they will need to be replaced and no manner of printing will clean them.
