Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer

1 Answer

Hp Laserjet printer

When i print i get a band of shading down the left hand side of the page.

I have changed the cartridge but has made no difference. If anything is is worse now because it has gone from thin stipes to a wide band covering almost 1/3 of the page width.

Any suggestions please?

    The stripe down the left side has grown to about 3" wide, started about 1/2" wide. I think it may be from preprinted return addresses on envelopes. I was printing abotu 250 and noticed it at about 100. I have tried theHP Clean utility, wiped down the roller under the toner, and the problem comes back in about two more envelopes. Any ideas how to fix/avoid this problems?

A vertical stripe that is consistent top to bottom could be a laser issue, it has prisms and lenses that could be dirty or even a bit of paper stuck covering the laser light window. Dig into it and look for any debris and clean the lenses.

New toner prints very light. No setting changes on printer.


I had a similar problem, it turned out to be a cheap toner cartridge. Replaced it with an HP cartridge and have had any problem since.

HI there have you tried the toner cartridge as this could also cause this problem? Also change the transfer roller and are the bands going from left to right or from up to down. If the bands are left to right change both if up to down more likely to be the toner cartridge.



Hope this helps you
Thanks J

With other laser printer that problem would be attributed to the drum being faulty. Your model of printer has the toner and drum built into one unit - the "cartridge". You can try a different cartridge and see if that changes your printing results. Another reason, which is less likely, but still possible it that your fuser film sleeve need to be changed. The fuser film is located deep within your printer and requires a technician to replace it. Regards, Babb
