You need to have the fuser replaced, it comes out easy on these back cover just pulls off, and there is two tabs or long silver screws to undo fuser, remove it anf you will see that upper roller is worn, buy a maintence kit for this model which includes fuser and fit it yourself easy done instructions are included with kit.

Hp laser jet P2035N has a crease down the center of the page as the paper exits it is actually slightly raised so the print is smearing

Check to make certain that the fuser unit is not damaged. Often a crease or dimple is caused by foreign material on the fuser roller or the fuser is damaged. If the fuser is damaged, look into replacing the device, it may be cheaper than repairing the fuser.

Paper comes out creased on one side

If the printed image is smudged, as well as creased, you might have a torn Fuser fixing film.
You will need a technician to fix that.
If it is just a crease, just check that
1. Your paper is not damp. Try a fresh packet of paper
2. The paper input tray guides are set to the width of the apaer, to prevent the paper skewing as it feeds.

Good luck.

Paper is crumpled, toner is not adhering in certain areas

The fuser is shot....this is the unit that uses heat and pressure to fuse the toner to the page. It is primarily when the pressure roller wears that you get crinkling and bad fusing, but I'm sure the upper sleeve has seen better days as well.
These days it is (sadly) cheaper to replace this printer with a new little HP -only around $100 or so.

Printer is creating a crease and smudge down center of page.

There sounds like there is somthing in the path of the printhead. Using a flash light, remove back cover of machine and look for a small piece of paper,etc. Be careful not to jam anything in to th machine. It may take running a thick piece of paper through manually with your hands to remove the object.
