My hp laserjet m1005mfp printer is not printing document while i replace its cartridge twicely so give me solution urgently


Checking the print cartridge
Image-formation defects are frequently the result of problems in the print cartridge. If the source of the defect is not immediately evident, always replace the print cartridge before troubleshooting image defects.
Use the following checklist to make sure that the print cartridge is still operable.
? Make sure that the print cartridge is seated properly.
? Check the print cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
? Inspect the print cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
? Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to see if it has been damaged or
scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting
and image defects.
? Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the cartridge has been
overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.
To redistribute the toner in the print cartridge
Before installing a new print cartridge or when the toner begins to run low, redistribute the toner by
rotating the cartridge back and forth five or six times.

Okidata c9650 printer. technician told me to replace transfer belt in my unit because i was having an issue with the color print quality. It had a light streak running through it and the top of the page...


That message is indicating that you need to replace the black drum which also may have been what was causing your origanal issue. Whenever you have a print quility issue print four seperate documents each document using one of the four colors (black, yellow, magenta, cyan)used by the printer. If the problem only shows up in one color then that is where the problem is coming from.

Black smudges down left side of page


How do I clean white or black spots on printed documents? Description: First make 10 to 15 copies of a blank, white sheet of paper.
If you still see the spots on printed documents after making multiple copies, clean the drum unit as follows:

  1. Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly, and then remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit.
  2. Position the print sample in front of the drum unit so you will know the exact position on the drum that is causing the poor print.
  3. all-ug-19.gif
  4. Turn the black gear on the drum as you check the surface of the OPC drum.
    The OPC drum is photosensitive so do not touch it with your fingers.
  5. all-ug-20.gif
  6. When you find the substance on the drum surface that matches the print sample, gently dab the surface of the OPC drum with a cotton swab that is lightly dampened with isopropyl alcohol.
  7. Note
      • Do not use a scrubbing or wiping motion because this might damage the drum.
        all-ug-21.gif
      • Do not try to clean the surface of the OPC drum with a sharp object, such as a ball-point pen, because this might cause permanent damage to the drum unit.
  8. If the print quality still has not improved you need to install a new drum.

Smudge marks on paper; otherwise normal


fuser is usually replaced as a assembly, it's the hot bit a back.

Can only be two things the drum or the fuser as our headstrong friend has correctly explained.

More than likely it is the drum they last about 4 toners i think.

Learn the art of getting a page to stop halfway threw printing, you want to stop the page after the drum has put a image on the paper but before paper has gone threw the fuser (hotbit).

Once you have mastered the position correctly by stopping the printing by opening the door and removing drum/toner cartridge, to reveal the paper that is printed but can be rubbed off, we will know if marks are coming from the drum (you will see them) or from the fuser, if print is fine
