Question about HP LaserJet 2420 Printer
My printer will print about 20 pages with no problems and then it starts printing black lines and a dark gray background. The cartridge is new, I ran a cleaning cycle 3 times and reinstalled the drivers. Every time I run a cleaning cycle the problem clears up and then comes back after about 20 pages.
This print quality problem may be a paper problem more than an ink or toner problem.
1. Check that your paper is not damp. (inkjet and laser printers)
2. Is your paper loaded correctly into the paper tray? Most papers are designed to be printed on one side which usually means the shinier side of the paper. (inkjet and laser printers)
3. Is the paper setting correct for the quality of your paper? As an example, high gloss paper printer settings should not be mixed with plain paper. (inkjet and laser printers).

Hi there sound to me like the toner cartridge is either faulty or leaking. Is it or has it been refilled if so remove cartridge vacuum out the insides of loose toner install brand new toner cartridge then test again. It cannot be the fuser unit as it will have quality problems all the time so try above and I hope it works for you.
