Look on top of the toner cartridge, there should be a blue slider....move it back and forth 10 times.

If that doesn't cure it, replace the drum unit.

Transfer Belt Leaving Color Streaks on Pages


Try replacing color toner of the same color that are the lines.If the void was in the same place all of the time then I would say use a Q tip dipped in 90 proof alcohol and clean laser.

Tip

When u print if u r getting the Horizontal or vertical line then follow these...


If the print is a dismal gray rather than a sharp black, you are probably almost out of toner. This can manifest itself evenly across the entire page or in splotches or stripes, depending on the printer.
Sometimes you can wring a little bit more out of a toner cartridge by taking it out and gently shaking it from side to side (never up and down, as toner can spill out). You can also try turning up the printer’s contrast adjustment, if it has such a knob (usually on the back side if it exists). Faded print can also result from a dirty corona wire, because a dirty wire inhibits a full electrical charge from being passed.
If the printouts are consistently varied in density, and you have to frequently remove the toner cartridge and shake it to redistribute the toner inside it, make sure the printer is sitting on an even, flat surface.
Horizontal black lines
A horizontal black line on the printout is probably the result of a dirty or damaged roller. There are lots of rollers in the printer, and you can use the space between the lines on the page to determine which roller is causing the problem. Measure the distance between the errant black lines on the page and then use Table A to determine which part might be causing the problem. Table A
Distance between lines
Faulty part
0.5”
Registration assembly
1.5”
Upper registration roller
1.75”
Lower registration roller
2.0”
Toner cartridge developer roller
2.56”
Lower fusing assembly roller
3.16”
Upper fusing assembly roller
3.75”
Toner cartridge photo drum
Regularly spaced splotches
If there are evenly spaced black spots but they don’t extend all the way across the page, the problem is probably a scratch or flaw in the drum or a build-up of toner on the fusing roller. If the spots are less than three inches apart vertically, it’s probably the drum, because the drum has a larger diameter than the fusing roller.
Vertical black line on edge of page
This can indicate an almost empty or faulty toner cartridge or (less frequently) some spilled toner inside the printer.

Prints a line in a page


if that line is horizontal and repeat itself on the page then the problem should be from the Drum of Toner.(should be fixed if you replace Toner)

if it is vertical line all over the page then it ia allmost the fuser film (torn vertically) and if so you should send the printer to a specialized technician

Dark lines appear on each page I print on the printer. I have cleaned every roller, dumped the old toner and added new toner.


Are the lines vertical or horizontal?

vertical lines can be caused by several things.
Since you said that cleaned the rollers, then here are other options
1: Most common is a bad toner cartridge.
2: try cleaning the fuser entrance guide.
3: could be a defective formatter - formatter replacement the fix.
4: worn fuser. fuser replacement is the fix.

horizontal lines are probably repetitive down the page, and are usually caused by a defective toner cartridge or fuser assembly. occasionaly a transfer roller will cause it as well.

Toner loves to get baked onto the fuser and cause all kinds of print problems. Not much you can do but to replace the fuser when this happens.

Problem for print by photo copier


sounds like the charge grid is not set properly in the drum unit..did you et up the drum unit properly and run the new dev and drum set up..if youy are getting black the charge is not working correct as the charge of the drum help to keep the toner from adhering to the drum surface when copying .. I would take the drum chrge unit out again and check it is set in the right way when you put it back on also check the contacts arent put out of line.

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 :)

Printer prints white thick blank lines


1- black lines are from the drum: it has burnt out on that particular spot and rotates

2- the white horizontal gap space if it is not you skipping space is also from the drum

3-the white Vertical is most likely from the developper (unit that has the toner and is against the drum, look at the roller it should be solid black, maybe there is something on it : hair paper etc....

Horizontal lines


Depends on whether the "lines" are colored or just blank areas missing in the print . If it is blank areas , then most likely the laser scanner is dirty and the glass needs to be cleaned . If it is colored lines , then you most likely have a defective drum .
