Hp 2420 printing light on left side of page

HP 2420 Laserjet has been printing light on the left hand side of the page. I changed the ink cartridge and no improvement. The page also prints a little too far to the left as well, but not much. Is there anything that needs to be cleaned? I don't see any smudges or dirt anywhere inside.

How can tell if the ink level is low? hp 2420

Cartridge comes along with memory, the information of estimated ink/toner levels will stored in this memory(Depends upon the cartridge model yield will varies). When printer performs the printing, memory count will comes down, when its reaches the minimum count printer will display the message of "low ink/toner/remain pages" levels, once its reaches to '0', display will changes like "replace the cartridge"...But there is no electronic component or mechanism to measure the ink/toner levels in the cartridges.Only estimated levels only printer can recognizes.. Take usage page through menu, you will get the information that usage % & printed pages info,you can judge how much remain it can print...

Hi! I just changed my print cartridge (HP LaserJet- C7115X, ink 15x) and the printing quality is still low! It's as if it's still running out of ink, however the cartridge is brand new. Please help!

Did you remove the strip that the printers ship with? If the pull tab is still in then there is typically enough toner to print a few pages and then it fades out. Remove cartridge and check on left and right hand sides for a plastic loop usually orange. The instructions would have been in the box.

HP Laserjet 2420 is printing a vertical black streak along left side of page.

This is either a defect in the cartridge. Or a defect i the fusing unit. Try a different cartridge to see if it goes away. Most all print quality issues on HP's are from the cartridge. If the cartridge does not fix the problem then the fuser film is goin bad. You can replace the fusing unit or find a local guy that can do just the film. Much cheaper. If the line down the side kind of "rubs" off like the toner is loose on the page then it is definately the film.

My hp 2420 is printing a black line-form

Lines are usually caused by the toner cartridge or the fuser. In order to determine the cause you can replace the toner and see if the lines go away. If not then it is in the fuser assembly and you would need to replace the fuser.
