Question about HP LaserJet 4200n Printer
I have seen this happen before with generic transfer rollers. I don't know where you got the parts from but that is most likely the cause. What is happening is the material of the transfer roller is sticking to the drum of the toner cartridge. When not actually printing the transfer roller sits up against the drum. If you still have the old "original" transfer roller, put it back in. You can try and clean the drum using glass cleaner and a soft cloth. Or just put in a new one. If you do not have the old transfer roller then al I can say is get an OEM HP transfer roller.
My experience with this issue comes from working for a service center that ordered a bunch of generic transfer rollers in an attempt to save money. We started having the same problem as you are having with numerous printers until we figured out what was happening. If it is the same problem you should be able to see the black bands across the drum surface and it will seem to be kind of sticky. Also the transfer roller might feel a bit "tacky" instead of being more like a foam type roller like the original ones are.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
