For Flexer and Guest - The Imaging Drum Assy is the 5-th consumable for your printer. U can buy it as well as any toner cartridge. U can find it in the front of the 4 toner carousel with a green plastic cover. Push it to the back of the printer and pull it out straight up. The new one has orange stripes and plastics that you should remove. The Imaging Drum's life is about 20k pages (black with 5% coverage) and 5k page (colour 15% coverage)

The HP Color Laserjet 2840 Is a Very Good Reliable Printer. I'm curious if you are buying American made components or cheap components from some thrid world country sold at ahuge retailer. They really should stand behind their laser drums, but if they don't then shop over at or and Purchase American Made Toner Cartridges and Laser Drums. Office Inks has a 1 year satisfaction and quality guarantee and free return shipping if their ink, toner, drums, ribbons etc, don't make you happy. Only Ships USA Though.

Printing streaks

Most Printers that are laser have a transfer roller or transfer belt. If you have replaced all the drums this can often be the problem.

This is probably a registration / alignment issue. I've had a similar problem before and had to call HP and get a technician sent out to fix it. They actually ended up replacing the whole machine for me.
