Question about HP LaserJet 2820 Printer

1 Answer

My HP Laserjet 2820 Printer has started printing a wide brown strip down the middle of every page printed. I have checked the rollers on each colour cartridge but there is no discoloration to explain the strip. Do you have any idea what is causing this and how I can fix it?

How do I clean the rollers on my laser jet printer, it prints with a long black strip in the middle of the page. Hp laser jet 1320


Most likely the heat roller is breaking down in the fuser. The fuser must be replaced. But before going that far, replace the toner cartridge, as it may have a bad cleaning blade. 85% of all print quality defects are cartridge related. This particular model of machine has a very brittle heat roller that more often than not wears out prematurely. This is true across the board for all of the newer HP low end laser printers unfortunately.

Hp 2820 prints only on right side of page


Yes, you will need to replace the drum unit as well. be sure to shop around so you can get the best price because some people mark up the price for that part. You can check the status of your supplies from the printer itself by pushing the "menu" button the printer and scrolling through until you see something about supplies status then press the check mark button.

HP Laserjet 5P shading edges of page


This is probably due to a defective cartridge, Charge Roller or Transfer roller.

Check the cartridge for a band of toner still on the drum.

Check the Charge roller for oil or smudges, this roller should be a lighter color and should be relatively free of toner or marks.

Same as the Transfer Roll, which will be dark, though excess toner should be evident.

A relatively smooth straight line is generally the cartridge.

A rather wavey or broken line is most likely the rollers.

You can however attempt to print a large amount of pages (25-50) in an attempt to clean the parts, however if either part is defective they will need to be replaced and no manner of printing will clean them.

There is a black line down the middle of the page when we copy.


When you say "It does not do this when we are printing directly from our PCs" do you mean this printer is networked? And are you connecting a computer to it manually to print correctly? Or are you printing to another local printer that is attached to your machine?
Either A) the printer in question needs cleaned or has another problem. B) has incorrect drivers installed on the clients printing to it. or C) Has a problem with the network.

Print issues


Look at the fuser, and see if you can see a bad area on the fuser roller, matching the position on the paper. I suspect a bad fuser. Fusers need to be replaced periodically, and typically via a maint kit which replaces several feed rollers as well.. How many pages have been printed.. Print a config sheet to display this information.

Red dots on left of page


You need to measure the distance between two dots (In milimeters if possible). After that I may be able to determine what is causing the problem.
