    HP Laserjet 4 has 1 1/2 inch wide variable gray shadow down center of printed page. No other conditions and print quality is otherwise excellent.

    Conducted 1/2 page Self Test and no shadow on page. Printed shadow is now darker after 1/2 page Self Test. New toner cartridge purchased three months ago was not a rebuild and has light green roller.

    Advice please and thank you.

    My printer prints a solid black line on the page in different positions each time it occurs but it does not occur on every page printed. As my printer is 10 years or more old now i am reluctant to get a new cartridge if this is a hardware or software problem.

I have a grey/black line all the way down the right hand side of the page


Run a half test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray.
Print something, anything
When the paper is 1/2 way into the printer, open the cover.
Pull out the toner cartridge. Look down at the paper.
Does it have a black line on the right side?
If yes, replace the cartridge. If no, replace the fuser.

Black line going down side of paper from HP laserjet 1018


Roller Drum Problem in the cartridge.

If you are printing bulky document it may damage the roller drum causing dark line starting for both left and right paper. It will get bigger once it span of time.

Or if you are refilling the toner of the catridge, the waste compartment is full and requires to remove the waste tones inside the cartridge.

Or the worst thing is the the FUSER FILM ROLLER (orange plastic roller inside the printer is torn or burn because of heat or bulky printing.

I have an HP LaserJet4 and I'm suddenly (as of last evening) getting a 41.3 error code followed by a 13 Paper Jam. I clear the jam, warming up, blank page is ejected, I put the printer back on line,...


41.3 - points to a miss match in the paper tray.
First -
Pull out your paper trays, take the paper out and confirm the guide in the back is set to the correct position. (The little mechanism on the tray which allows you to use different paper types, example letter to A4).

Second -
The other which may have happened it the paper handling was mis-configured on the machine:
- Press the Menu Button on the machine.
- Using the + and - button go to the Printing Menu.
- Select Paper confirm that the paper size is correct for the trays within the machine.
Third -
- Depending on the document you are attempting to print make sure the document type is either adjusted to the type of paper your using or to load the correct paper into the machine. I seen where people send you a legal document and your attempting to print it on letter.
Fourth -
It could be a driver related issue, 98% of the time this is not the case. If all fails above, then attempt this.
Let me know if this helps!
Lastly it could be a driver related issue, however if more than 1 person uses it don't count on it.

Hp psc 1210xi- the black ink cartridge appears to be out- i have a good color cartridge-how do I get the error off of my printer and print with my color cartridge?


  1. Take out the black cartridge once you've determined that you are completely out of black ink. You'll have to rely on the dark hues from the color cartridge to print in black.
  2. Adjust the printer software settings. Once you take out the black cartridge, your printer's software will typically warn you that you are missing a cartridge. Follow the instructions for your printer to allow the printer to print without the black cartridge. Then set the printer to print in black and white, not color. This overrides the black cartridge and allows the printer to access the dark hues of the color cartridge.
  3. Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
  4. Print your documents. Bear in mind that your documents may not appear as black as normal. Still, they should be dark enough to pass for black, depending on how much color ink you have and the strength grade of the ink.

Printer only prints half a page


this is a driver problem, try reinstalling the printer with the laserjet4 driver which is a universal PCL driver, this should solve the problem. If not, there is also a blank HP Laserjet driver

Documents print part way then stop


I've had similar problems in the past with my 1100dtn printer...there are several possible causes...it may simply be refusing to continue printing because the blue cartridge is completely out of ink...in spite of the black only setting.

Also, it could be some kind of software conflict, virus program, or spyware overload occuring in your PC...especially if the document you're trying to print is a large file, picture, or contains a lot of graphics. Try a test print from windows with other programs shut down.

Try completely removing the HP printer management software and then reinstall the latest version for your operating system from HP's web site.

A firmware upgrade may help. Firmware files and instructions are available on the HP web site. Mine printer has been running bug-free for about 18 months now...since I did a firmware upgrade. Firmware updates are complex...hopefully you'll find a simpler solution....but it may be needed, especially if your printer is more than a couple of years old.
