It is either the fuser or toner cartridge. Try a known good toner cartridge. If this solves the problem, then you have a bad toner cartridge. This can often occur when cartridge is near "end of life".
If this doesn't solve the problem, then most likely it is the fusing assembly. You can also try a "half page" test print. Stop the printing in the middle by opening the toner cartridge access door before the paper reaches the fusing assembly. "No defects" , then I would strongly suspect the fusing assembly. HP is replacing these fusers based on Mfg date. of the printer. Call HP if it is a fusing assembly problem.

When i send a test page from the printer p3005x it print blank page


Hello, Try a different cartridge if you have one (even a used one). Does it print anything? If "Yes" then the printer is most likely OK and the fault lies with the Toner Cartridge. Checks - 1) the Drum Flap operation, does it move freely. 2) Check the electrical contacts, look for bent pins or toner accumulation on the contacts. Replace the Toner Cartridge with a new one. If "NO" the Printer still prints blank with multiple cartridges, the a printer may need servicing, check the left side of the inside of the printer, this is where the toner cartrisge contacts are located, check for bent pins or paper obstructing the pins.

HP Laserjet p3005x printer - Just received this printer from used stock. Every time we try to print in duplex, the paper jams under the toner cartridge after printing the first page and then being sucked...


Hello, This problem is commonly caused by what is known as the (DPA) duplex pendulem assembly. The function of th DPA is to switch the direction of the paper in order to print the duplex side. The DPA sometimes will bind and not work properly which results in the paper jam you have described. See Photo Below.

In order to change this part, the printer needs to be dis-assembled. AN HP Certified Technician would be best to do this repair.

Printer won't print...there was a paper jam and it was cleared


Most of the Lexmark printers (including the Z- and X- series) pull the paper down on one side slightly faster than the other. The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.

If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):

Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).

Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.
Then plug the printer back up, take your paper out and replace it with a fresh, small stack (about 5 pages) of paper. Quickly bend the stack in an 'S' shape a few times to separate pages. Make sure it is lined up on the right side of the paper feed and the paper guide on the left is snug on the left side of the paper. Then try to form feed again. If that works, then try to print the self test page.

Please follow the steps given below to perform the self-test:

1. Press the "Copy" button once.
2. Press the "Options" button 11 times until the screen reads "Maintenance."
3. Press the "Left Arrow(-)" button until the screen reads "Maintenance: Self Test."
4. Press "Select."

The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.
If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

Made a mistake buying this printer!!


First off, How many times does it flash organge before it goes to green?

two: out of paper
three: paper jam
four: Ink has run out
Five: FINE cartridge cannot be found
Seven: FINE Cart. not installed in correct position
Eight: Ink absorber almost full

Count how many times it flashes. Then get back to me.
Make sure the little tab for the paper size is all the way to the right. also check the printer settings on your computer to make sure the paper size is the size you want. IE:letter. Also make sure the inks are in their correct positions.Black on the right hand side and color on the left. Also check to see if there is anything stuck inside the printer that could jam the paper.

1610 all in one.....won't grab paper


The feed roller was turning but the paper wasn't moving and so I kept getting an "out of paper message." The paper was actually getting caught on a small black piece in the back of the printer. I removed the black piece and the paper start to feed fine.


Remove the back access door (it just pops out... no screwdriver required). The black guide piece (2nd from left) is about the size of my little toe after I took it out. Use a flat head screw driver to pop it out... that should leave 3 black guide pieces left. Put the access door back on the printer and the problem should be solved.cf725f2.jpg

Left side of page prints blank


Hi there in the paper handling menu check the paper size settings as it maybe as simple as the incorrect paper size has been set in the machine


Hope this works for you
