Question about HP LaserJet 4300n Printer
This could be a couple of things, easiest thing to try first is to put a different toner cartridge in, something that has already been opened because it would save you from opening a new one. Another thing you can try is sending a cleaning page through the printer to clean off excess toner from the fuser unit. What happens is over time toner builds up on the lower pressure roller of the fuser unit and after being heated and cooled so much the toner starts to flake off on your print outs. Follow these steps to try to clean the lower pressure roller:
To run the cleaning page manually
1.If a duplexer is installed, open the rear output bin.
2.Press check mark(SELECT button) or the MENU button to open the menus.
3.Use (UP ARROW button) or (DOWN ARROW button) to scroll to CONFIGURE DEVICE, and then press
4.Use or to scroll to PRINT QUALITY, and then press the check button
5.Use (UP ARROW button) or (DOWN ARROW button) to scroll to CREATE CLEANING PAGE for the(LJ 4200/4300) or PROCESS CLEANING PAGE if you printer is a(LJ 4250/4350) then press the check mark
6.Follow the instructions on the cleaning page to complete the cleaning process (LJ 4200/4300
7.If a duplexer is installed, close the rear output bin.
This should help clear some of the flaking toner, if not you might have to replace the fuser unit.

I would try a new toner cartridge. The fuser might not be heating correctly.

Try these settings.
Use this item to configures the fuser mode associated
with each media type.
Change the fuser mode only if you are experiencing
problems printing on certain types of media. After you
select a type of paper, you can select a fuser mode
that is available for that type. The available selections
might include some or all of the following modes:
NORMAL: Used for most types of paper.
HIGH 1: Used for rough paper.
LOW: Used for transparencies.
HIGH 2: Used for paper that has a special or rough
The default fuser mode is NORMAL for all print media
types except transparencies (LOW), and rough paper
Do not change the fuser mode for transparencies.
Failure to use the LOW setting while printing
transparencies can result in permanent damage to
the printer and fuser. Always select Transparencies
as the Type in the printer driver and set the tray type
at the printer control panel to TRANSPARENCY.
When selected, RESTORE MODES resets the fuser mode
for each media type back to its default setting.
Hope this helps

It sounds like the fuser isn't working properly. If the printer does this with all kinds of paper then you may just have to replace it. However, if it only happens with certain print media then you probably just need to change the printer settings to fit that type of paper. When you select "Print" in any program a window should pop up with the printer options. Look for a button that says "Properties" or "Preferences." In the printer properties/preferences there should be a menu where you can select the paper type and size. Adjust it to what you are using and see if that helps; different types of paper require different treatment. If the paper is glossy, look for a setting for that as well. You can try to access the preferences directly from the printer as well, some printers will let you select paper type, while others only from the computer.
I hope this helps! Good luck!
