    I am printing on normal 80gsm paper. I have re set the factory settings and this does not work. replaced fuser, cleaned rollers, emptied machine upside down, clalibrated printer, all has no effect. Thinking now that it has something to do with the feeder or a sensor?

I'm not sure what you mean by "not printing on paper, the image area is shifting". What are you printing on?

Have you tried uninstalling the device drivers and reinstalling them? This may clear any software quirks caused by conflicting devices or user settings.

    The feeder (roller) that pulls the paper from the tray could be pulling the paper up too late. Have you checked the roller for obstructions?

My HP 3700 Laserjet printer is printing black specs

Examine the fuser and see if it has those specs on it. If so, the cleaning blade is not removing all the toner residue and will need replaced.

I have an error showing 49.4C02 on my laser printer 3700n What does this mean?

Press STOP to clear the print job from memory
Power cycle the printer
Try printing a job from a different application.
Try a different driver i.e. PCL5 instead of PCL6
If you have extra memory DIMMs installed, take them out and try printing.

Hp 3700 giving 13.20 error but cant find damage or paper scraps.

Sounds like you either have paper still jammed (maybe partial peice) in the fuser area or duplexing area. Open rear of the printer by removing the fuser in the back. Carefully check the fuser for paper and or damage to the sensor flag (small black flag in fuser paper path). Just in case you can't find it, I have included a link to the complete service manual that will walk you through inspecting and repairing the problem. Start on page 347 of the manual.

Hope that helps you. :)
