Hi I have just inserted a new HP ink cartridge 94 into my HP PSC 2350, as the ink was running low. I was printing photos, which keept printing with a red line throughout the picture. After inserting the...


Try opening the printer properties and cleaning the print heads (should probably be done each time a cartridge is changed), it uses some ink up but should clean the build up from running the previous cartridge dry and hopefully solve your printing problem.

Good luck.

Fuser Error


I truly believe that you did not take the fuser out. It is not a simple process and is not readily accessible.
You most likely took out the toner cartridge, which works with the fuser.
The fuser is what "fuses" the toner to the paper so the documents print as expected. There are fuser kits that can be purchased, and they usually come with some decent instructions.


in case of new printer
A fuser problem is serious but if it is is a new printer, use the warranty now. Don't play with it as more than likely you can't recover and you *MAY VOID* the warranty in any attempts, so use the warranty. You should have returned it immediately once the problem cropped-up to be within the quicker satisfaction settlement period, you may now have to deal with a warranty center if not the vendor themselves for repair, but start the process. Plus, document this as well, cal,s letters, etc. to best serve yourself if any other problems arise.

To explain what the fuser is, one must explain what the fuser does.

A laser printer works by assembling the page in its memory, then transfers that "image" by scanning a drum. The drum then picks up a charge which will attract the toner. By varying the laser you can induce specific dots, creating an image on the drum. The drum is rotated through the toner, the charge then attracts the oppositely charged toner particles (the uncharged sections don't have anything) The drum, now dark with toner, is touched to the paper, which has an opposite charge, thus transfer all the toner over to the paper. Then the paper is sent THROUGH the fuser, which basically MELTS the toner onto the paper permanently.

If the fuser is too hot, that means the temp control unit for the printer fuser has FAILED, and that is NOT something you can fix by yourself. The labor will likely cost more than the printer unless it's under warranty.

You took out the toner cartridge, which is NOT the fuser. Toner cartridge is just the toner and the drum together in one unit. The fuser is where it warns "high temp! do not touch!"

Just buy another printer or use the backup printer. Again, this is NOT something you can fix by yourself.

My cpmputer does not show how much ink is in my cartridge and hgow many pages left tp print


If you loaded the full suite of software that came eith your printer it may give you an estimate of how much ink is left. Most inkjet printers do not have the capability to show exactly how much it left, they calculate remaining ink from the number of pages printed since the ink was installed. Even $15,000 color copiers must calculate the amount of toner left but the complexity of the data the copier looks at gives an extremely close estimate. All of this depends on what percentage of the page is covered. Most toner and ink usage data assumes 5% coverage meaning an 8.5" X 11" page completely filled, excluding margins, with 10 point text. If you are printing pictures, graphics, bold face type, etc... the coverage could be extremely high. Hope this helps. Post if you have more questions and I will be glad to help.

I have a fine line across some of my printing. I am using and hp psc 1205 all in one printer. What could be the problem and how can I solve it.


Usually a line across your printing indicates a bad inkjet head. Luckily on HP printers the printer head is built into the inkjet cartridge. Have you replaced the cartridge? Does it do this on any color or a particular color?

My advise is to replace the cartridges and perform an alignment. If that doesnt fix it, it could be a bad board.

With the power turned on.
Just above the paper try & below the scanner bed.
Lift the edge till the hole top opends like a book. The carridge with ink cartridges will move to the center of the opening. Do you not have a manual? Download it at the link here.

The cartridge needs cleaning. There are several things you can try. Using a wet paper towel, you can wipe the gold portion of the cartridge to try and draw out ink, or you can dunk the entire cartridge in warm water for a couple minutes or so (I have done this with success). The process is more clearly explained here:
