I've had this printer for almost 2 years and it has been working great. But all of a sudden it only started printing about 1/3 of the page, instead of the full page. It said after, the yellow toner was low so i changed that. Same result. Replaced the imaging drum as it was 2nd hand with a brand new one from HP. Same result. Reinstalled drivers. Same result. Any ideas please?

For understand the issue, little bit technical knowledge required: Take half test page, check how much dark image formed on paper, check on cartridge drum how much dark image created?..(half test page: while printing half of the page switch off the printer, take cartridge out as well as take half printed page)If half page print quality is good on paper: Fuser faulty(teflon sleeve)If half test page print not good & image on drum is OK: Fault with Transfer roller or its bios voltage contacts..If there is proper image on paper & image drum: Problem with laser scanner assembly..find the problem, then remedy is easy..
I have two problems. Either it won't accept a print job or when it is printing it stops when it is going through the job intermittently. Like for an hour it won't continue then all of a sudden it prints one page then a half hour later another page etc. It is so frustrating.
I know this problems in my part it was the hp driver. My Solution is to use an compatible driver. HP Laserjet 5 / or 6 standard windows driver. After that i have not this problems. The secound problem is that this printer have very less memory and big pages in a few times are not able to print.
