    I have found out that just before the problem started they had replaced the toner cartridge. (One month ago, secretaries and communication). Thanks Eddie.

Hi there make sure that it is not on toner saving mode in the driver then try taking out the toner cartridge and shaking it side to side then reinstall toner and test machine with fifty copies. If not any joy then replace the toner cartridge as 9 out of 10 of this sort of problems are toner cartridge. Is the toner cartridge an original or a refill one if refill change for a new original.

Hope this works
Thanks J

I have a HP 7590 printer and it sometimes skips line or some of the lines are faded when printing black .

Perform the following steps to reduce or eliminate faded or grainy lines:
  1. Print at a higher quality setting.
  2. Verify that the paper you are printing on will lay flat. Paper that is not laying flat can cause banding when the paper transitions over the rollers or cause the print cartridges to scrape across the surface of the page. Check the top sheet of paper by removing it from the all-in-one and placing it on a flat surface. If the paper does not lie flat, bend it in the opposite direction to straighten it.

Printed page not clean, faded characters in background of page. Any suggestions? I cleaned the pickup roller.


Have you tried another toner cartridge? And when you say it has faded characters in the background? Does it look like it's reprinting the image kind of? If so, you will need the fuser unit replaced. The fuser is responsible for melting the toner to the paper, when it goes bad it can cause "ghosting" meaning it reprints previous images. A technician would be needed at this point, the part number for the fuser is RM1-1289.

Please let me know if there is anything else you need.

Faded section of screen

Is it an LCD or plasma monitor? If it's an LCD, it's possible that one of the fluorescent backlight tubes is bad. In some early ones, this is bonded to the LCD panel so it's not replaceable. Maybe it's under warranty?
