If these are at regular intervals across the page AND down the page , with a spacing of about 1" - read on..

They are caused by a component in the toner cartridge.

Originally the cleaning roller was a plain roller, but at some time the 'bean counters' decided they could save a tiny bit of money on each cartridge by using a spiral foam roller instead. The foam also seems to be of a different type, and doesn't age well.

There are two solutions.

1. Replace the cartridge that is producing the coloured squiggle/


2, dismantle an OLD cartridge and if it has a plain (non-spiral) foam roller, swap that (along with it's supports - the new type are a different size).

Either of the above will cure the problem, but a new replacement cartridge may also show the problem in time, as it WILL have the spiral cleaning roller.

Error code c1144


I have 5 biz hub 654s. There is no "utility" hardware button. Instead, open the front cover (marked "biz hub 654") - switch off the main power - white switch in an orange rectangle. Wait 30 secs. Flip back on- then QUICKLY close the door while holding down the yellow RESET button. "Trouble reset" appears - tap it - OK appears below it. Use main power to power down. Wait 30 seconds. Power back up. Works every time.

Printer is printing yellow instead of red and colour is fade


The magenta has run out (red).
Replace the HP 22 tri-color cartridge.
It probably has yellow and cyan (blue) left in it, and the black is most likely working as well, but if any of the 3 colors in the tricolor cartridge run out, the whole cartridge must be replaced.
For instance, if I printed my vacation photos and there was a lot of water and blue sky in all of them, the cyan might run out long before the cartridge life expectancy.
Also, don't forget that cartridges are rated in pages printed at 5% coverage.
Since a photo is about 25% of a full page, a photo printed at full bleed (edge to edge) will only yield 32 4 X 6 inch photos from a cartridge rated at 160 pages (5X expected coverage = 1/5 the prints)

I get a line in the print how do i fix it


Hi,
Lines on the page is usually due to debris or scratches on the laser drum or fuser roller. These are situated within your toner refill cartridge. Check these rollers by removing the cartridge and pulling back the flap which conceals the rollers. Take note that the drum is sensitive to light & should not be exposed to light for prolonged periods. Check that there are no marks or scratches on the drum or fuser roller. Whipe off marks on the drum with a soft cloth or if there are scratches, replace the whole cartridge unit.

Best wishes,

Printer making marks down the left hand side of every page


hello,

This sounds like the photoconductor units for both black and blue need to e replaced. Open the front of the printer like you are changing toner cartridges. On the front door parts that opens to you there will e four pieces, 1 for each color. Look at the one with blue on it and the one with black and look on the ends of these, they are the photoconductor units. I bet both of the colors have worn sections compared tothe magenta and yellow ones. The replacement part number is C53030X and you will need 2 of these. They have a life span just like toner and have to be replaced too.

I hope this helps,

How do you load document to send fax. With letter facing you or facing down. Model HP 920


There should be an icon on the device showing a rectangle and what appears to be a triangle on top of it. This is showing you a folded page. If there are no lines on the rectangle with lines on the triangle then you insert the page face down (print on page towards the device) if the rectangle has the lines and the triangle doesn't, you insert face up (print facing you while in the inserting into the machine)


If you have any more concerns address your owners manual, this can usually be found on a CD that came with your printer or at HP's support website.

Let us know if you have any other issues.

Yellow runs out after only a few hundred prints and didn't used to


Not sure why you're going through the yellow toner so quickly. You might try pulling it out and shaking it some to re-distribute or loosen the toner inside.

Yes you can override the cartridge out of toner print halted problem. This is located in your User's manual and is stated as:

Replace Supplies feature
The printer has three options for low or exhausted supplies status:
STOP AT OUT (the default setting): The printer continues printing while a print cartridge is low.
When the cartridge is out, the printer cannot print.
STOP AT LOW: The printer pauses until you replace the low cartridge.
OVERRIDE AT OUT: The printer continues printing even after some supplies have run out.
To set the Replace Supplies feature
1.
Press Menu.
2. Press (down arrow) to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE, and then press (check mark button).
3. Press (down arrow) to highlight SYSTEM SETUP, and then press (check mark button).
4. Press (down arrow) to highlight REPLACE SUPPLIES, and then press (check mark button).
5. Press (down arrow) or (up arrow) to select the appropriate setting, and then press (check mark button) to set the selection.

● If you select OVERRIDE AT OUT and then press (check mark button), a warning message appears. To accept the override, select YES, USE OVERRIDE and press (check mark button), and then set the page limit for the override and press (check mark button).
6. Press Menu to return to the Ready state.

Xerox 6250dp


I had this problem when I used a generic toner. I installed a xerox cyan toner, then printed many sheets of a large blue rectangle. After about 15 pages the blue started to spread into the shape, after 30 pages the blue was back. Printing a lot of blue was necessary to get the new toner thru the system.

Color Quality is not so great anymore


Sounds like the machine needs to be cleaned. Probably a heavy use machine that has quite a bit of ink spray build up on the inside. I would imagine your service station has quite a bit of ink build up in it as well possibly causing the cartridges not to be cleaned like they should. A good cleaning cures most of what ails inkjet printers. We would charge $85 in our shop for complete disassembly down to the metal frame and cleaning.

HORIZONTAL Lines on faxed/scanned pages.


I've seen this before. Since the printer portion is working fine that points to the scanner mechanism as the culprit. There are two things I have seen cause this. 1) If the line is a perfect rectangle all the way to the edge of the page then the light bar itself is dying and there isn't much you can do to save the unit. Send it in for warranty repair if you have the option. 2) If the line is more like a skid mark like you mentioned, then the paper that is being scanned is not pressing up fully against the light bar. Not enough light is bouncing off the page and the scanner can't read it well. This can also be caused by a roller not feeding correctly and then bunching up the paper a little bit. I would check the rollers for wear or something being off center. This can sometimes be caused if the machine has ran a high volume or thick paper. I would really think the cause would be one of these two since you are getting the marks at odd intervals, if the intervals were regular it could *possibly* be the drum but as I stated before, with the print function working right, I doubt it.
