    Try to connect to another computer if work normally your drivers have incorrect parameter. Does the prited document has all info printed or some of the informations ar missed? As far as your printer is LASER based product misaligned is almost impossible. It can occured at incjet printers. Try to check printer default values.

HP color laserjet 2840 printer. no printing on the left side of the paper.


No print on the left side indicates that the toner powder on the left side is almost empty. Try to remove the toner cartridge and shake it well if the toner are new.

If still the same, you need to replace new toner cartridge to get better print out.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

I have an HP LaserJet1020 printer. When I try to print a document a 2 inch wide area the full length of the page on the right side of the page) will not print. If I change to landscape printing, the same...

Run the 1/2 print test.
Print a few pages that have failed previously and as the printer is printing open the cartridge cover(top cover).
Pull out the cartridge and look at the paper down below. If the page looks good, you probably need a new fuser. If the page is messed up you could have a bad transfer roller or another bad toner cartridge.

Hi when printing black or grey outside edges

sounds like your black toner cartridge is getting low or not filled evenly. To fix this until it get a bit lower on toner just take the cartridge out and holding it up right give it a few shakes side to side. The will spread the toner power out inside and you should be printing normally again.

This can also happen if you moved or bumped the printer. Usually you only see this when the toner is low or after you print a lot of pages. Most text is in the mid of the paper so thats where the toner get s used the most.

The problem is the heat transfer unit in the printer. The heat unit on the right side is either not heating up at all or not enough to transfer the toner to the paper. If the printer is still on warranty it needs to be repaired by a tech. If the printer is off warranty, it's usually not worth fixing.

Blank printin on the right middle ohe paper

Toner may be low. Check the Toner level. You may have to clean the printer too if you have a new toner cartrage installed. You might also have a bad printer where its not able to fuse the toner in that area any more.

Printing is not clear on the right side of the printed paper. Even when a new ink cartridge is installed the printing is not very readable on the right side of the printed paper.

Ok try this...... Somewhere around the toner bottle, should be a piece of glass covering the laser from getting toner in it, remove the glass and clean it. Let me know if this works.

Printing is too light on the right side of paper


possibility is that the toner particles inside the cartridge has been displaced and unevenly spread when the printer was moved. Try removing the toner cartridge, shake vigorously, to even out the thin powdery toner particles inside.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

HP Laserjet 1320 - Gray bars printing on sides of paper with dark dots

It sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Try replacing it. If that does not cure the problem, then the fuser assembly needs to be replaced, in which case it is probably cheaper to buy a new one.

Good luck

Left side of page prints blank

Hi there in the paper handling menu check the paper size settings as it maybe as simple as the incorrect paper size has been set in the machine

Hope this works for you
Thanks J
