Hi,

The first thing i would look at is the toner cartridge, or print drum. not sure what printer you have so some have both some only have

1. if that doesnt correct it then you could have a worn fusing assembly, toner can build up on the fuser and cause ghosting or light shading. the other issue could be dust or toner on the lens on the scanner assembly. if this is the case, as with the fuser as well disassembly of the printer would be required to remedy these issues. the scanner itself could be defective as well.

you can try to do whats called a half print test where you send a job or a internal test print to the printer and stop the print process by opening the toner door when the paper is just a few inches beyond the toner. it should have print on the page but it should not go thru the fuser process. toner should wipe off the page. this test will eliminate the fuser as the problem. if the defect is not there before it goes thru the fuser then the problem is probably the fuser. if it is then the toner cartridge or laser scanner may have issues.

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Why do I get bleed through of print on pages I print out at bottom of page or shadow print on some?


Paper is too thin (use higher "pound" paper).
-or-
Toner is not of good quality (use HP Brand if possible)
-or-
Printer is set to dark or heavy in your page setup (change to normal or even light)

You can also make sure you are using an HP print driver instead of a generic print driver. Go to HP.com and search print driver for you model, download and install (if you don't already have an HP printer driver loaded on your PC).

HP Laserjet 5P shading edges of page


This is probably due to a defective cartridge, Charge Roller or Transfer roller.

Check the cartridge for a band of toner still on the drum.

Check the Charge roller for oil or smudges, this roller should be a lighter color and should be relatively free of toner or marks.

Same as the Transfer Roll, which will be dark, though excess toner should be evident.

A relatively smooth straight line is generally the cartridge.

A rather wavey or broken line is most likely the rollers.

You can however attempt to print a large amount of pages (25-50) in an attempt to clean the parts, however if either part is defective they will need to be replaced and no manner of printing will clean them.
