Probalbly the upper fuser roller has some of the film torn off. Look close with a flashlight through the back of the machine.

Possibly a small piece of torn paper in the paper path. Run a piece if stiff cards through the path a few times to try and remove it.

Black ink streak on left side of paper on hp 1012, just put in new toner


Run a half test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1).
Send a print job to printer. When the paper gets 3/4 of the way into the printer, open the cover. Pull out the toner cartridge, look down at the sheet inside the printer. Does it have the streak on the left side? If yes...your toner cartridge is bad. If no...replace the fuser.

Problem with paper feed - all sheets come out wrinkled with smeared ink print


Sounds like your fuser is bad, ink is not adhering to the paper and building up on a roller that is causing the paper to wrinkle.

Hp 1010 Laserjet wrinkles paper


Typically, what causes wrinkled paper is the fuser assembly in the top rear of the printer. This is not a user replaceable part. I would first check to see if there is anything obstucting the paper path like a torn peice of paper or paperclip etc. You can take it to a printer repair shop to get the fuser replaced for around 100-150 dollars.

HP LaserJet P3005 printer prints wrinkled paper


2 reasons:
1. Was there a paper jam prior to this problem? It could be that the paper was pulled out and a small bit of it is stuck on the pins that guide the paper from the heat roller. If no torn jammed paper prior to this issue, then check out 2.

2. the heater/roller is damaged and needs to be replaced. I would suggest you take it to your nearest HP dealer to properly diagnose this for you.This would save you unnecessary cost in trying to pull it apart and causing more damage to it.

Good Luck,

Sometimes it's due to low fusing temperature. Certain papers need higher temps. Check the paper supplier or look in the printer setup menus and adjust the paper type to as close as possible to what you have.

The printer is printing little black dots on my documents


If the dots are all over the paper you may need to replace your toner cartridge. If the dots are smearing, you may need to check your fuser assembly (have it checked by a professional).

Paper completely wrinkled


NONERIGHTNOW, HP makes great laser printers, the commercial LaserJets typically last 8+ years without much more than an occasional maintenance kit to keep them going. The 1000 series printers are quite another story, they are designed for the low end printer market and just can?t take hard usage over time. The typical culprits with paper wrinkling are heat from the fuser or paper problems. -In the paper tab of the printer driver make sure the correct media is selected. This controls how hot the fuser gets which also causes paper curl/wrinkling. -Buy some fresh HP grade paper, improper humidity, coatings and storage can also cause problems. -Try a new HP cartridge. If you still have no success starts a print job and turn off the printer while the paper is feeding. What you want to do is try to freeze the wrinkling process so we can identify what area is causing it. Post this information. Also open the rear, straight through door; also let us know what happens. Let us know how it goes and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
