Question about HP LaserJet 4250n Printer

1 Answer

Help! My printer is printing text and then leaving like a shadow or very light imprint of that text on other pages. Too, there are a few ink splotches here and there on the various pages. Does the printer head or rollers need to be cleaned? Do we need to hire a tech to fix this? Many thanks!

First, if you have one available swap out the toner cartridge. It is possible on this series for the toner cartridge to cause double imaging. This is especially true if the double imaging is across the entire page. If the double imaging is in more of a streak or line down the page especially on one edge then is it more likely to be a fuser film going bad. You can replace the fusing unit yourself if you want. Just do a google search for HP 4350 fuser unit (going by the picture in your post)
About $150 to $200
If you can find a guy, you can have just the fuser film replaced in your fuser unit at a cost of around $175 for parts and labor.
The most expensive route is to have a service company replace the fuser. They will charge you around $300 parts and labor.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

The color streaks on the pages


There are several possibilities...
1.The Type setting is wrong for the type of paper or specialty media you are using. Change Paper Type to match the paper or specialty media you are using.

2.The Texture setting is wrong for the type of paper or specialty media you are using. Change Paper Texture from Normal to Smooth or Rough.

3. The Weight setting is wrong for the type of paper or specialty media you are using. Change Paper Weight from Plain to CardStock (or other appropriate weight).

4. The fuser is worn or defective. Replace the fuser.

Printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color


Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).

Canon ip1000 printing problem,pls help?


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Double text/shadow


Hmmm.. I would suggest first removing the ink cartridges and then reinstalling them. That should triggert the alignment page. If this does not resolve the issue then uninstall the driver and reinstall the drver and run the test page from Control Panel>Printers>options

Nothing comes out when I print


Epson 777 will not print. No paper jam. Power light flashing; red error light on steady. Paper does not feed; if paper supply is placed deeper in feed, entire paper supply (about 12 sheets) feeds thru as one sheet normally would , without printing.
