Question about HP LaserJet 3030 All-in-One

1 Answer

HP LaserJet 3030 Printing comes out light but copies are fine.

My Laserjet 3030 prints faint/lightly it will print light images whether it is coming from a computer or is one of the demo/configuration pages. However when using it for copying the copies come out just fine. I can't seem to figure out where the issue is coming from. I have tried resetting defaults, and since the copies are coming out fine one would think the toner and fusers would be ok.

SOURCE: HP Laserjet 1300 yellow light STILL flashing

Re-installing the print driver will not solve a flashing light. If the printer is functionally ok, it will come to ready simply by plugging into the wall. It sounds to me like a fatal error at this point.....could be a long list of things, but I would lean towards a formatter board. bottom line with this printer at this point in it's life is, if it doesn't work, it's not worth fixing. Replaceable for about $100.

I can tell you that it is NOT the Fuser unit. I would change the drum unit first. This would be the most likely cause.

Your description indicates that the problem is with the printer driver settings.
Go to Start, Control Panel, Printers and check the setings for Economode and ReT. The should both be off or Economode=off and ReT set to Med or Dark.
This should fix the problem. Let me know if this works or not and we can try something else.

SOURCE: HP Laserjet 1300 printer Yellow light flashing

dear friend,
when the printer give you a yellow flash that should be means a fault happen so you have to do the following:
1- check if any messages appears on your computer when you trying to print something that should be help you. if not go to step 2
2- black paper may be come from the (P.C.R.) that is the charger of the drum, so if you can open your cartridge and check the charger at the op of the drum that will be good and if not you may change the cartridge and check again.
3- Also, you can release the cartridge and look inside the printer may be you can find something wrong or something need to fix
4- Other wise go to hp help center

Try reseating your Ink Cartriges first then try printing to see if the error still appears, if it does try reinstalling your printer drivers... make sure you check your printer cables if they are conencted properly to your computer after reseating the cartriges.

LaserJet 6L Prints Outlook content too light


I also had the google maps print issue on my HP3030 and fixed it by setting the "Default Quality" under "Copy Setup" from the HP3030 menu to "Photo" from "Test".

That's a hardware setting on the HP 3030:
Menu/Enter > Copy Setup > Default Quality > Photo

Hope this helps.
