HP LaserJet P4515 Streaking

We have a HP LaserJet P4515tn that has started streaking recently. The toner cartridge has about 48% remaining, and the maintenance kit is only down to 92%. I have checked the fuser and cartridge rollers and they are both clean.

It is possible that the cleaning blade on your toner cartridge is malfunctioning. Try replacing it.If you can time it right,try shutting down printer in middle of print job when copy is between toner and fuser and see if the problem is before it reaches the fuser.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

If it's a spotty line, that most likely points to the fuser. Maybe something tore the belt or scratched the roller in there.

tIpically streaking on P3005 is related to the toner cartridge. First I would try replacing the cartridge. If that doesn't resolve it the next more likely cause is a fuser.

HP 4000n spitting out extra toner. Replaced cartridge and still having the same issue. Any suggestions?

The laser printer actually has a collection area for excess toner located under the toner cartridge. When that is full you will get extra toner coming out and streaking your paper. Take the collection chamber out and clean that out or replace it and you should be good.

The printout from my HP 2600n has serious toner streaking. The repair centre said that I have to replace all cartridges. Is that the right thing to do?

streaking is usually caused by crud build up on the drying drum. it you have done two sided printing, sometimes the toner ink can get on the drum, you have to take the drum out and clean it.

Laserjet 4050 - black streaking on right hand side of page

It is either the toner cartridge or the fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray.
Print the Configuration Pages.
When the sheet is half way fed into the printer, open the top cover.
Remove the toner and look at the sheet of paper. If you see the black streak, the toner is bad.
If the sheet looks good, the fuser is bad. Probably a bad roller, which you can see looking at the fuser.

I have a HP laser 2600n and it is streaking magenta horizontally.

Sounds like the red cartridge was removed or tilted and leaked toner on the drum. Just do a self clean and it will clear up. It in the maintenance menu.

Printer has set for a while. The print quality is very poor. Black is grey, there are streaks across the page.

Take the cartridge out and shack it side to side a few times to move the toner around and reinstall it.
