HP Laser Jet 2200 dtn - Print Quality

Have a problem with print quality. The printed page has a light residual copy of what was printed on the page. It shows up at the bottom of the page.

I tried replacing the toner cartridge.

Was wondering if it could be paper. I recently purchased some Stapes Laser paper.

Your help would be apprecated..

Why hp laser jet 1020 plus printing only some areas in a page

Poor copy quality can be isolated tot he following three components.

1. toner cartridge, you can quickly change the toner and find out if the printing improves.
2. Transfer roller which is located in the printer below the toner cartridge, these rarely fail so I doubt this is the issue.
3. Fusing assembly, the fusing assembly has a mylar sleeve around the heating element and over time this sleeve degrades and as a result print quality is compromised.

Hope this helped

My printer HP LASER JET 5200 DTN shows "Ready" on the display but it doesn't print, how can I fix this?

First thing you need to do is establish whether the print engine itself is at fault, or not.
From the relevant printer front panel menu, invoke printing of one or more of the available reports (configuration, font list, etc.); do these print?
If the reports print OK, try to send some plain text to the device.
On a Windows system, you could do this by using the DOS copy command in conjunction with an appropruate net use command to redirect LPT1: to the (USB) port associated with the relevant Windows printer instance.

HP Laser Jet 4250, print getting very light in last few months or year. 135K page count, 6 years old, 600 DPI, PCL 5 - Windows Vista HP Cartridge, or compatible cartridge no difference - still light No...

The laser mirror could be dirty, the transfer roller could need changing. Looking at the "print quality" sub menu, the toner density default setting is 3. Up it to 4 or 5. See if that makes a difference. Remove the cartridge and open the covers. Use canned air or an air compressor and blow out the printer.

We have a HP Colour Laser Jet 3600n. We have

nope...... the problem as you rightly poit out is the cartridges, most refills are poor quality and dont last, but the real ones are expensive but very rarely cause issues. If one colour is dodgy the entire colour process fails, print a square of each colour to determine which colour cart is the issue and complain to seller, 99.9% of print quality issues with these HP's is due to non gen toner....not much you can do, expensive is colour printer fullstop.

The printout is low quality not smooth ?

Generally with all laser printers the print quality is low when compared to that of a inkjet printer. Try cleaning the Printer Cartridge and u can make good quality print outs by changing the settings at the time of printing. Use your Laser Jet printer software from HP and clean the device.

Diagnosing Print-Quality Problems

1. From the Control Panel, scroll to Troubleshooting, then press OK.
2. Scroll to Print Quality Problems, then press OK.
3. Scroll to Troubleshooting Print Quality Page, then press OK.
The Troubleshooting Print Quality Page includes instructions for printing the

the entire page. Also, you may see color variation from jet to jet on the Eliminate
Light Stripes test print. Some variation is normal, occasionally occurs, and usually
self-corrects within a few printed pages. If a print-quality problem is not resolved
with the information provided in the Diagnosing Print-Quality
