Question about HP LaserJet 2420 Printer

1 Answer

Our printer is leaving a black line vertically down the middle of each page, label sheet/envelope, etc. It does not rub off - stays permanently. Is there something that needs to be cleaned off inside the printer?

How to print envelop on HP 3390


you would be better using sticker sheets.
see for an example
http://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/c/office-supplies/labels/address-labels
your local office supply shop would have something similar

Some labels have downloadable templates to make it easy to line up the addresses to the laser label sheets

Trying to print on the envelope could cause jams inside the printer

I860 will not print a 4 x 6 photo on a windows 7 pc. It gives a message that I have installed the wrong paper. It only wants to print full sheet size photos. I installed the canon add on module drivers and...


Set Envelopes Correctly Before setting envelopes, press down on all four corners and edges of the envelopes to remove curls and bends, as well as any air contained.

Note: The flap of the envelope should be straightened if bent. If the envelope is curled, hold the opposite corners and gently bend them in the opposite direction. If the leading edge of the envelope is puffed or curled up, use a pen, etc. to press the envelope flat and sharpen the crease. (Press the envelope completely flat, working from the middle to the edge.)


i80_envelopes_2.gif How to set envelopes:
  1. Set envelopes to the right side of the sheet feeder. Set envelopes with their longer side vertically and the flap either at the bottom or on the left.

  2. Pinch and slide the paper guide until it firmly resets against the left side of the stacked envelopes.

    Note: The maximum number of envelopes that can be loaded is five.

  3. Set the paper thickness lever to the left.

Load and print envelopes


Generally NO. The reason is they have a manual slot and rear exit that keeps the path nearly straight for things like envelopes, labels, cardstock etc so they dont have to make the turn from the tray and from the fuser to the fact down exit tray. If you need to do a mailmerge with numerous envelopes you could 1) print a sheet of labels and stick those to blank envelopes or 2) go to a more advanced machine that has envelope feeder capability. Even a used machine such as a Laserjet 4000 - you can find envelope feeders that just attach on easily for almost nothing on ebay.

Black vertical lines in copies


You need to clean the glass. Open up the feeder and you have a large piece of glass for scanning and to the left a smaller piece of glass that it uses to scan from the feeder. Clean this smaller piece of glass; even the slightest smudge can leave a black streak.

Black line down the middle of scanned documents.


Try leaving the cover open and run a test scan, once with a fresh sheet as the item to be scanned and then a second time without anything on the table.  You may see what is blocking the light source or possibly a defect in it.
Scanning is done left-right, left-right across the width of the page and the vertical stripe indicates that the blockage is present during each scanned line.
In servicing copiers and multifunction machines, I have found a number of curious contaminents, one of the most annoying was a moth, still alive, that would randomly sit on the lamp, causing some pages to come out OK, others not. 
If your copies and printouts are coming out fine, then only the scanner can be at fault.

Blank lines and doesn't feed properly


Please clean the print nozzles :
  1. Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
  2. Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
  3. Continue doing this until it looks clean.
  4. Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
  5. Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
    1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
    2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.


  1. Paper jam:

If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
  1. Press the power button to turn the printer off.
  2. Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
  3. Close the front cover.
  4. Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
  5. Resend your document to print.
Ensure that:
  • The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
  • You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
  • The printer is on a flat, level surface.
  • The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
  • You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
  • The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
  • Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
  • Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
  • You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

Envelopes and labeles


Go the "print" dialog and select "settings". Ensure that the paper size, margins and orientation are not set for 8.5x11.  You did not mention the software you are using to print the envelopes/labels so this is the only guess I can give.   I have seen software that made me have to override the settings before.
