HP Laserjet 2820 Streaks on Page

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?

Hi,

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.

How do i stop my printer from leaving ink streaks down the right side of my pages?


I was going to suggest removing the fuser and looking at the rollers, but on this printer it's a major operation.
Instead let's run the half test. Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). Print to the printer. When the sheet of paper gets pulled about 3/4 of the way in, open the top cover. Pull out the toner cartridge. Look down at the paper. Does it have a streak down the right side? If yes, replace the toner, if no, have the fuser replaced.

My hp laserjet 3030 printer has begun printing with grey horizontal streaks over the entire page. Can anyone help with the problem?


Sounds like a bad fuser. To check it out - print a few pages, as the printer prints open the cover(the one that you open to get at the toner).Remove the toner. Look at the page that is facing up. if it has streaks on it - change the toner. If it looks clean, change the fuser.

Black streaks on the sides


If this is a laser printer you need to send a 1 page print job and when the page is under the toner cartridge and a little into the fuser open the top. look at the page and determine if the defect is coming from your toner cartridge of the fuser. you should also see the defect on the drum or on the fuser.

I just picked up a 4500n hp laserjet, and it was very dusty inside and out. So I cleaned it inside and out very thourougly. I plugged it in and print the configuration page, the plc, ps fonts, demo page 1...


Most likely the drum is failing. After printing pages remove the drum and see if it has streak on it to be sure (don't bother trying to clean it - if it has streaks the cleaning mechanism has failed)

Streaks on photo sensitive drum HP laserjet 5MP


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
