HP Laserjet 3055 All-in-one. Printing and copying too light despite brand new HP toner cartridge. On the computer, "Print Quality - print density set to highest number (5) for darkest. Also tried...


New cartridge means that the transfer corona is probably going out (or the controller board is sending wrong voltage) because it charges the paper to pull the toner off of the EP drum. This might be replaceable but you have to check with HP about buying one. I did not find them for sale on line but some models have them for about $25.

How do i change the print cartridge?


Replacing the print cartridge
  1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the old print cartridge. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, minimize its exposure to direct light by covering it with a sheet of paper. Figure 1: Removing the print cartridge c01174123.jpg
  2. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, hold the print cartridge at each end.
  3. Pull the tab until all the tape is removed from the cartridge. Put the tab in the print cartridge box to return for recycling. Figure 2: Removing the sealing tape c01211568.jpg
  4. Gently rock the toner cartridge from front to back to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Figure 3: Shaking the print cartridge c01211569.jpg
  5. Insert the print cartridge in the device and close the print cartridge door. Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge c01174125.jpg CAUTION: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash the clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into the fabric.

NOTE: When toner is low, faded or light areas appear on the printed page. You might be able to temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner. To redistribute the toner, remove the cartridge from the device and gently rock it from front to back.

Old LaserJet 4L working perfectly. Just bought new generic toner cartridge and now getting shading over entire page, turning paper an almost-even gray, darkest at left edge. I'm suspecting cheap cartridge...


You're right about the cartridge and I suppose cleaning it means all the toner that the generic cartridge dumped. Turn off the machine, take out the cartridge and use a vacuum cleaner and a soft brush to get that extra toner out. After that use a soft cloth (not terry) to wipe down the inside.

HP LaserJet 3030, light print with original brand new cartridge, even with the print darkness set to 5 (darkest). Thank you for any tips!


Forget buying a new toner cartridge and don't bother re-installing anything - This is a power supply problem - The electrolytic capacitors fade away after a few years of power on and the high voltage to the printing engine drops too low.I tried a new toner cartridge - no help - re-installed drivers - no help.If you can handle a soldering iron or know a friend who can, replace the following capacitors on the power supply board on the LHS (power cord side). Make sure you use low impedance 105 degree power supply types. Warning - high voltage !!! power cord out and wait 30 minutes before touching anything.
C374 341 503 529 (47uF/35V), C526 (1uf/50V), C506 (0.47uF/35V), C515 (100uf/50V). All the others tested fine in mine. Also make sure you install them the correct way around!
Now I have "black as black can be" prints just like new and I set print density back to 2 not 5 to save toner.
enjoy ;-) - Ray P

OfficeJet G85 Makes Unreadable Copies


Usually, it's the print cartridge. I recently installed a new black cartridge on a 6110 printer and it, too, was very faint in printing. It turned out to be "dried up", even though it was a new cartridge in a sealed bag (but purchased in 2005).

New scx-4521-FG/ too much fad


The darkest copy setting is obtained when the contrast is set to dark and the toner save is turned off. If the originals being copied are too light, this unit has trouble seeing the image and the copies are extremely light as well. If the originals are good and dark, try using original toner cartridges.

Be blessed.

9 times out of 10 when a copier is printing light it is NOT the toner.
