Take the toner cartridge out and turn it upside down and look at the drum. It should be clean if the cartridge is not leaking.

I recently acquired an HP 1300n Laserjet Printer for gratis, installed with drivers and HP Toolbox. My issue is print quality, very dark grey background down the middle 70% Have adjusted all the settings...


one possible cause would be the nozzle of your cartridge maybe their is already a clog that blocks the continuous flow of your ink, try to clean the head by using the maintenance software. Go to control panel>printers>properties>printing preference>locate the maintenance then try to access the cleaning of your cartridge, I'm not sure which location of the cleaning of head better to check all the menus. Hope it helps thanks.

Print outs have black shading. No replace cartridge or other message.


Based on your limited description, it sounds like a dirty drum is leaving ink on the paper.

HP sells cleaning kits. I recommend that you contact HP for further assistance.

HP LJ 2600 "dirty" printing


Hi,

If the toner cartridges are "refills" that might explain some of your print quality issues. Unfortunately, HP only has 2 replacement parts for that model, the fuser and the ETB (Transfer belt) both would require a technician to replace. Check the transfer belt of any tears or punctures. Careful not to touch it, oils from your skin can cause quality issues as well. If at all possible replace all the toners with ones that were working fine.

Old LaserJet 4L working perfectly. Just bought new generic toner cartridge and now getting shading over entire page, turning paper an almost-even gray, darkest at left edge. I'm suspecting cheap cartridge...


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.

Try to change toner cartridge, I had this happen with my old laserjet 5, and it was a faulty cartridge on mine.

Hp Laserjet printer


a vertical stripe that is consistent top to bottom could be a laser issue, it has prisms and lenses that could be dirty or even a bit of paper stuck covering the laser light window. Dig into it and look for any debris and clean the lenses.
