Question about HP LaserJet 2820 Printer
Our HP 2820 keeps printing with streaks on the right hand side of the page running all the way from top to bottom. It happens with both coloured and clack and white prints. I've cleaned every vissible part! Any suggestions?
There are 3 parts to the imaging process that could cause your issue. You have the toner (x4), the imaging drum unit (Q3964A) and the fuser unit. If you are getting streaks from all colors, one or more these parts are the issue.
Let's start with the easy stuff:
Open the cover as if you were replacing toner where you can "visually" inspect the toner and imaging drum. Pull the drum out and pull back the "plastic shutter" on the top, this will expose a green drum CAUTION! Too much exposure to light and touching it can cause damage. Just take a quick look trying to see if any of the lines on your page match any marks on the drum. Check the bottom half of the unit as well there should be a white section across the bottom, expect that as well.
Next look at the toner, if you can look at any other color but black it will help you look for the streak marks a lot easeier. If you couldn't see any streaks on the drum on toner cartridges, it's time to look at the fuser unit. Power the machine down and turn it around, unplug it then fold down the blue clips and CAUTION! the fuser heats the toner to the page so if it's been used recently it may be hot. once the clips are down, just pull straight back and look for the streak marks.
Sorry for the book, but I hope it helps.
