HP 2420dn printing gray and shadows

Our office uses the HP 2420dn for several users. We recently replaced the toner cartridge and it is now printing shadows. We tried to run a cleaning and that made it worse by causing it to print pages dark gray. Please help!

    We have the same problem...It just started a few weeks ago, right after we changed the print cartridge.

I am getting a black/gray shadow of other parts of the page down the right side of each printed page


This is called backgrounding. It is a common issue with this machine when you print past the reccomended out or use inferior remanufactured carts. This is usually either a poorly adjusted doctor blade in the cartridge, or if it is an HP cart, it has a prematurely full waste bin and is transferring waste toner to the page. Either way, replace the cartridge.

New toner prints very light. No setting changes on printer.


I had a similar problem, it turned out to be a cheap toner cartridge. Replaced it with an HP cartridge and have had any problem since.

Shadowing/graying with printing


Hi fa1103:
Gray background
1. Do not use media that has already been run through the printer.
2. Try using a different type of media.
3. Print a few more pages to see if the problem corrects itself.
4. Turn over the stack of media in the tray. Also, try rotating the stack 180°.
5. Open the Configure Device menu at the printer control panel. On the Print Quality
submenu, increase the TONER DENSITY setting. See the user guide.
6. Make sure that the environmental specifications for the printer are being met.
try these steps to see if they work for you.
