Question about HP LaserJet 3330 All-In-One Printer

Vertical Thick Lines accross papaer on a HP Laserjet 3330

I bought this printer used, but was working fine, except it was producing very thin light lines accross the paper spaced out about 3 inches from each other (when the picture was all white it didnt print nothing, but when it was all black you could see the lines).
Somebody suggested replacing the toner carthridge, so I did. Now with the new carthrdige i get thick horizontal lines spaced out about 1.5 inches from each other, and they get darker and messier towards the center of the page.
Help Please!

    It turned out to be the cartridge....even though it was brand new and HP brand....so i returned it and bought a remanufactured one for half the price, and it's working perfectly!
    Thanks for your advice =)

So the "White lines" went away when you replaced the cartridge, and now you have "dark Lines"?
It sounds to me like you have yet another bad cartridge. Is it remanufactured/ compatible?
Although, they can perform very well, they can also be awful depending on the source.
Return it and get another one, or different brand.

Our Hp 5550 prints thin vertical black lines on high res images. They are evenly spaced (3cm apart on an A4 print).


This is caused by a damaged drum. The drum is the long metal cylinder inside the toner cartridge. You will have to replace the hold cartridge. You should be able to flip a plastic cover on the toner and see the drum. If it has black toner lines then it usually means the drum is scratched and there for toner fills the scratch and produces lines.
Replace the print cartridge (toner cartridge) and the lines should go away.

I have a HP LaserJet 3330 copier/printer.When I use the document feeder on top I get a black line. When I put it on the glass, no black line. Help!


You may have some thing like a small piece of paper or some other obstruction in your document feeder mechanism that is blocking the light to the document or ostructing the view to the image sensor. Carefully clean that feeder and rolls perhaps by blowing.

Manual feed from upper tray copy produced line


Vertical lines are caused by one of two things. 1. The photosensitive drum in the toner is scratched or the fuser has a problem. Either is an easy fix.

HP Laserjet 3330 printed dark page especially around the middle


Does this happen both when copying and printing?
For printing solution, try another toner cartridge.
If lines continue to appear when copying (primarily through the automatic feeder) then lift the auto feeder, and clean the glass -mainly the narrow piece on the left side.

please rate solution :)

HP Laserjet IIIP starting printing thin vertical black line


Was this happening before you swapped toner?
Is there toner streaks on the drum? Yes? Defective.
What if you stop the printer (open cover) as it passes through the fuser to determine if image is from drum or fuser?
But really....isn't it time to move on anyway???

no you cannot print on both sides automatically.you have to give the prints 2 times.at first the paper will print on 1 side then insert the same paper in the printer and give the remaining printout and it will print on the back side of the same paper.as you can do it manually but the automatic printing on both side facility is not in HP Laserjet 3330 printers.

Hp laserjet 3055 all in one


It was not the laster jet 3055 problem at all. It was the program that I was trying to run the scanner through. Seems as though the previous employee destroyed the program and that is why it was showing only lines when I would try to scan anything. Thank you for your support. Love hp products.
