Hello,

Is the whole page you want printed on half the page is just half the data printed? If the whole page is printed on half the paper then the problem is software. If the page only prints the left side or the right side blank on the other side then the problem is most likely the fuser assembly. Can you take a picture of the page and email it to us, we will email you back with what needs to be done next.

My printer is leaving an imprint of the previous page on each new sheet on shiny label material I have been using this for a couple years for this job with this same material. This is a new problem.


There are couple possible problems here.
1. If you are reusing sheets of labels, the toner that is being printed on spots where labels are already removed will get picked up by the fuser and redeposited on the page.
2. The fuser is wearing out and toner is sticking to it and getting redeposited.
3. If you are not setting the paper type to labels, the wrong fuser temperature will be used which can cause this problem.

Keep in mind that life ratings for items like fusers are based on the following assumptions:

1. You only print on plain paper
2. Every print job consists of at least five pages.

Under these assumptions the life of a fuser in a 1215 is probably around 100K pages. Printing all single page jobs or difficult media like labels can drop that life expectancy to under 30K pages.

If you print a usage page for the printer it will show how many pages you have printed.

Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.

When i power on my printer, its blinking indicating there is paper jam and no paper are in the tray, its also blinking at the part. kindly advice on how to go about it


if a computer is trying to send a print job, a no paper situation will make the printer think the paper jammed when it tried to pick it up.
Put at least one piece of paper in the tray.
If a page comes out, determine what computer is generating it, and kill the print job at the computer.
Then turn the printer back on and see if the error is gone.

Easier test - disconnect everything but power from the printer. have at least 1 sheet of paper in the tray. Power it up. If everything is normal, you need to track down the machine on the network that's trying to send a print job.

I have a HP LaserJet 5P. This has been a great printer with excellent print quality. Recently I printed a file that had a lot of dark background. Since then the printer output has a spattered black...


Geez, a real oldie.
If you pull down the back door, I think that you can see the fuser.
It's been a long time, but let's see how this goes. The back of the fuser, I think pulls down.
If it does, look at the rollers inside. There are two of them. Do they look dirty or torn?
If yes, you need a fuser.
Run a 1/2 print test. Send a print job to the printer. It has to be about 4 pages. Use the manual feed tray, so that you can watch. When the sheet of paper gets 3/4 of the way in, open the top cover. Pull out the toner and look down at the paper. Does it have the black splatter?
If yes, replace the toner cartridge. If no, replace the fuser.

Using hp laserjet p3005n, when I print one page it sends blank pg


Annoying but easy to solve.
Go to the printer's ip address management page from a web browser. Look under the TCP/IP address settings. Click on the advanced selection. Disable the LPD Banner page. That should fix it, if it's not under advanced poke around until you find LPD Banner Page. ;)

Hi, Make sure the rear cover is closed. 2. Usually when you get misc symbols on the printed page the machine couldn't recognize the print job. I would try printing something from another file and see if the problem occurs.
