Do the toner catridges leak from the same area? Does the leak occur immediatly after you replaced the catridge? If yes, then probably a bad cartridge also. Are these refilled catridges? If you remove the toner, tilt it to the right side and it spills then it is missing a seal.
There also was a problem with the D.C. controller for wich HP launched a replace during warranty period. The problem occurs if MP tray is set to any,any. This will cause the printer to initiate a cleaning cyle after each MP print causing too much waste toner to accumulate and eventually fill up and leak. For some reason Magenta caused most of these. So, if the toner spills occur after some time once a catridge was replaced this is the problem and the DC controller needs replacing.

Checking the toner cartridge
Image formation defects are many times the result of problems in the toner cartridge. If there is any doubt, always replace the toner cartridge before troubleshooting image defects.
Use the following checklist to make sure that the toner cartridge is still operable.
" Make sure that the toner cartridge is seated properly.
" Inspect the toner cartridge for toner level.
" Check the expiration date stamped on the toner cartridge box.
" Check the toner cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
" Inspect the toner cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
" Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting
and image defects.
" Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.
Note A toner cartridge weighs approximately 863 grams (30.5 oz) when it is full, approximately 766 grams (27.0 oz) when it first fades, and approximately 742 grams (26.2 oz) when it is empty.

To redistribute toner in the cartridge

Before installing a new cartridge or when toner begins to run low, redistribute the toner by rotating the cartridge back and forth five or six times.

Checking the print cartridge
Image-formation defects are frequently the result of problems in the print cartridge. If the source of the defect is not immediately evident, always replace the print cartridge before troubleshooting image defects.
Use the following checklist to make sure that the print cartridge is still operable.
? Make sure that the print cartridge is seated properly.
? Check the print cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
? Inspect the print cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
? Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to see if it has been damaged or
scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting
and image defects.
? Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the cartridge has been
overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.

I would not advise you to refill a toner cartridge becausethe toner powder is very fine and you do not want to breath in this tonerpowder. You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer. This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter. A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

My HP Laser Jet 4000TN printer makes a line along the right side of each sheet (about 2 inches in from the edge of the paper). How do I get rid of this?


3 possible options:

1 - Swap/ Replace the toner cartridge as it may be leaking
2 - the transfer roller may need to be replaced or cleaned(This is the roller you see once you remove the toner cartridge) easy way to tell is how much black toner you have in the bay of the machine where the toner cartridge sits
3 - the fuser needs to be replaced. IF the toner was leaking it can contaminate the fuser which will burn the black line into paper.

Toner on the side of paper when copying


If you are using refilled toner cartridges then your toner cartridge may be leaking or the waste toner tank on the toner cartridge may be leaking. The other cause and more likely is the drum cartridge is leaking toner. I would recommend removing both cartridges. Then hold each 1 at a time over several sheets of clean white paper. Tap on the cartridges and see if any toner falls out of them. These cartridges are normally sealed and should not leak much if any toner. If toner falls out of either cartridge you will need to replace that cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Ink spots on paper


If the spots are all one color, the toner cartridge of that color has a problem. Check the drum on that cartridge and make sure there are no bad spots on it. Your cartridge could be leaking toner.
