Hp laser jet P2035N has a crease down the center of the page as the paper exits it is actually slightly raised so the print is smearing


Check to make certain that the fuser unit is not damaged. Often a crease or dimple is caused by foreign material on the fuser roller or the fuser is damaged. If the fuser is damaged, look into replacing the device, it may be cheaper than repairing the fuser.

First problem was the whole page was smearing when printing. I replaced the drum and there is still a little smearing. What can I try next?


smearing can be interpreted different ways. if paper stalls, it will cause "stretched" print. if the drive system is bogged down by a binding drum unit or toner, it can cause a "squished" print. if its just a "blurry" kind of print, it may be generic toner. since i can't actually see defect, i would say since you replaced drum already, toner would be easiest thing to do first. keep in mind also, generic toners have a fairly high failure rate.

Blank columns down center of page and faint type. Could the corona wire need cleaning? Where is it located. Any other ideas. I have already changed both the drum and toner with no printing dfference


Hi Len

Great I'm glad we fixed your issue, but if copies are too light then it is due to a few things.

That s.l.i.t of glass being smeared with toner, so give it a good wipe.

It could also be a non original brother toner causing issue as I have seen this many times, as would an old drum fitted cause light print.

Another common cause is having toner save mode ticked in printer properties, turn it off for best results.

Below is a pic of the tab to turn of toner save as I'm guessing it is the issue, also a pic from your maual of the s.l.i.t of glass. to keep clean, you can also do an internal test print on these by pressing the go button 4 times super super quick.

I'm posting your answer here so I can add these pics and a LINK to your use manual

Cheers

Steve

After printing label, the toner smears on the labels. What could be the cause?


1. Make sure that the labels are made for laser printers.
2. Third party toners (or non-Lexmark toners) could also be the problem.
3. When printing labels also make sure you set in printer options that you are printing labels and not just on plain paper.

Smeared output can result when you refeed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing parts, this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner or you can clean the rollers with rubbing alcohol.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

Finally, if this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; toner that is not heated properly will fall from the page and smear. If the thermostat is bad or the fuser not working properly, you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

As for the noise, there are several complex gear and roller segments that drive the paper between the paper tray, the scanner, the fuser, and the finisher. If these are not perfectly aligned or dirty the printer can make a grinding noise. It's even possible that if the paper is not being fed correctly, that the shift might leave segments of it less accessible to the fuser and prevent the toner from adhering to the page.

But I would try using WD-40 to lubricate some of these components and assume the noise and the smearing are separate issues.

Paper is crumpled, toner is not adhering in certain areas


The fuser is shot....this is the unit that uses heat and pressure to fuse the toner to the page. It is primarily when the pressure roller wears that you get crinkling and bad fusing, but I'm sure the upper sleeve has seen better days as well.
These days it is (sadly) cheaper to replace this printer with a new little HP -only around $100 or so.

HP 2600n crackling noise at top feed - paper creased


Can you wipe the toner off the page or smear it? Most likely the fuser has had the fixing film fail. Thus the crackling noise. You have two solutions, 1. replace the fuser with a ne or rebuilt one or 2. find a fixing film and replace it yourself. Both jobs require removing the fuser which means disassembling the printer. Check Printer Works for a diagram and Google for the best price on a fuser. Hope this helps.
