Question about HP LaserJet 1100 Printer

1 Answer

The print quality of my HP 1100 printer has suddenly deteriorated to the point where the type on MS Word, MS Excel, and CAD applications is very faint and nearly illegible. Type from web pages is even worse. Bold type and graphics on the printer test page print marginally, but show some 'shadowing', and normal 12 pt. type is not at 100% density and looks weak and a little ragged with fine lines being totally dropped out. To date I have tried: 1.) Replacing the toner cartridge with a new OEM unit. 2.) Throughly cleaning the machine and rollers per HP repair manual. 3.) Cleaning the laser lens and mirror per HP repair manual. 4.) Downloading the latest drivers from But the problem persists. I suspect that the fuser may be bad although the test page prints marginally and the sheets are 'hot' coming off the fuser. The printer has a page count of only 12,XXX and I hate to throw it in the trash stream as it has been a real workhorse for me, but a 'professional' repair is not cost effective so I am at the DIY juncture. Any suggestions are appreciated.

My printer is printing very slow

Are you printing images or text? Your printer, what you are printing, and the paper you are using may each contribute to this effect. Try the following instructions and see if you can change the print quality and paper type to something that prints more quickly.
To select a print speed or quality
  1. Make sure you have paper loaded in the input tray.
  2. On the File menu in your software application, click Print.
  3. Make sure the HP All-in-One is the selected printer.
  4. Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.
  5. Depending on your software application, this button might be called Properties, Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.
  6. Click the Features tab.
  7. In the Print Quality drop-down list, select the appropriate quality setting for your project.
  8. NOTE: To view the maximum dpi that the HP All-in-One will print, click Resolution.
  9. In the Paper Type drop-down list, select the type of paper that you have loaded.

Page breaks are are generally supplied by the controlling application, for example, Word, Excel.

For Excel, apart from using the "File" > "Page Setup" to define the page, you also have to define the "Print Area".

What is the application you are using to create the report?

Hp2420 does not print correct ranges in all apps.

I have found the solution. Quite simple. In the printers properties box select the general tab. Click on the on the printing preferences button. Selecting the Paper/Quality tab, observe the Print Task quick sets. These all need to have Default print settings selected. In our case, they were not. This enabled all applications to print correctly once again.
