SOURCE: my HP Printer a CM1312nfi mfp printer is printing

It could be one of a few things, one being the yellow toner cartridge, try using a different cartridge after replacing the cartridge run several cleaning modes from the service menu. If the problem is still persistent it could be the fuser assembly is too hot and therefore is scorching the paper or the etb is dirty. to clean the belt, access the secondary service menu, setup/press setup and cancel at the same time/ press set up again and you should see the secondary service menu/ select clean belt/ do this 5 times.

Clean the Fuser unit and Remove the Wasted Toner from the Drum, that'll definitely fix your problem. To do these, you have to disassemble the Fuser and also the Drum. If you need further help, let me know with more details so that I can give you the instructions on how to do and how to fix it with the easiest possible hints and instructions.

Good luck.

WIl not print correctly

If it is faded, it could be the transfer roller. I've had great success with simply periodically cleaning it, then getting a good printout. See my solution for this already posted: Check out this solution to the HP Color LaserJet CM1312nfi Laser Color...

Otherwise, the other issue I had late last year was that it needed a new intermediate transfer belt (part #RM1-4436-000CN). You can find a good deal on one, and the instructions for replacement are on page 156 in the service manual:
It's not the hardest replacement ever, but needs 2-3 hours depending on skill, and a little patience.

Good luck!

Replacing Cartridges on the HP Color Laserjet CM1312nfi

Yes, you will replace the whole cartridge. Open the front door and pull out the cartridge drawer. Grab the handle for the magenta and pull it straight up. There should be directions in the box.
