Question about HP LaserJet 2420dn Printer

Poor print quality

Seems as though previous print jobs are transposed from the fuser assembly onto new print jobs . I have cleaned the printer out serveral times and still get poor print jobs. does this printer have a fuser assembly, if so can I replace it? Is there a way to clear up the print jobs without replacing parts?

After you have printed a page remove the toner cartridge and look at the drum underneath, is there a ghost image of what has just been printed on it?? if so the cleaning blade is faulty and you'll need to replace the toner cartridge - this is the most likely cause of your problem.
Your printer does have a fuser and it can be replaced, but i don't think it's the problem.

Throughout print job HP laserjet 9050 print will be squigly/flakey and not fuse to paper properly


when you replaced the maintenance kit - did you replace the Fuser assembly as well - as this faultr is down to the pressure off the fuser roller to fix the image also there are two blue tabs that set the fuser unit to letter mode(less Pressure) these can be accessed without removing the fuser and are accessible from the left door. ensure the levers are set to paper and not letter. if the fuser is still not fixing the image correctly then a new fuser unit assembly is required as fuser units are non servicable.

Poor print quality


The "ghost" image is "burned" onto the drum.

A laser printer is supposed to charge specific "dots" on the drum, and the toner-ink is supposed to stick only to those "dots", the paper is pressed against the drum, and then the "fuser" uses heat to "melt" the toner-ink onto the paper, to produce the printed page.

You need to replace the drum.

Poor prints and paper jams


Sounds like you probably need a new fuser. Smearing is a good indicator of the fuser not getting the toner to fuse to the paper, also, if it is jamming a lot near where the paper enters the fuser, there is a good chance there is some damage on the fuser unit itself.

Lexmark t520 suddenly prints poor quality, i.e. the previous page prints softly onto the next page and the right side of the page (2" from right) is streaked with toner. Please help. TIA, Mike


this sounds like you have a fuser problem look at the fuser and see if it has toner build up on the rollers ghost printing can be caused by the toner cartridge or the fuser. this would indicate that your fuser isnt maintaining enough heat for complete fusing. is you take the rear covers off and run your print job. look to the far left side of the fuser and you will see the heat lamp lit up. this light should cycle on every 1 1/2 pages or so. any longer than that and it wont keep up with the print job

CLJ8550n poor print quality and wrinkled paper


this is usually not caused by the paper tray. this problem is usually caused by the fuser assembly. check your paper path. dead cycle the printer, shut the printer down before the paper enters the fusing area, check for wrinkles. remove all paper, print again, check the output, wrinkles, replace the fuser.

HP Laserjet 4350dtn Print Quality poor


Most likely the fuser has lost part of the teflon from the heat roller. Having said that, the first step in any print quality issues is to change the toner cartridge. good luck!

1710n Printer - poor print quality


You need to inspect your drum unit as well. If you can line up the marks on your page with the drum then you will need to replace the drum unit. If you donot find any problem with the drum unit then check the fuser unit on the back of the printer. Be very careful when checking the fuser since it is EXTREMELY hot. Good Luck
