I would first suspect the black toner cartridge. This is especially true since you have replaced the Fuser and Transfer Units. Most likely you have a pit or other mark on the drum surface so it is printing the mark on the page at regular intervals as the drum rotates. If you have a spare I would swap it out and I'd be willing to bet it goes away.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

    Strange thing is i did what you said but switched it out for an Old Black toner that gave marks previously but before i bought the new transfer kit. now with the old toner, the new image transfer kit and New infuser and There were no marks. Must have been a combination of things? Anyways, Thank you for your help

The far right hand side of pages printed on my HP Color LaserJet 3800n are faded .. as though the toner is not distributed evenly .. I've tried shaking the black cartridge but this has no effect .. can...


From the control panel, go to diagnostics menu and then select PQ pages. This will print color diagnostics pages so that you can see if it is one color or all colors that have a problem. If one color then it is either the cartridge or the scanner. If it is all colors then it might be the high voltage board, or possibly one bad cartridge causing a voltage drop. If you recently changed a cartridge put the old one back in and try a test print.

I have a grey/black line all the way down the right hand side of the page


Run a half test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray.
Print something, anything
When the paper is 1/2 way into the printer, open the cover.
Pull out the toner cartridge. Look down at the paper.
Does it have a black line on the right side?
If yes, replace the cartridge. If no, replace the fuser.

Hi,

Just remove all the removable parts from your printer including trays, toners, etc.

Shake your print toners so that the toner powder inside is mixed well equally throughout the drum inside.

Replace all the parts back and try printing and may be this should work fine for you.

Please provide back your ratings.
Thanks

HP Laser Jet 4700n-Light printing on right side of paper. Removed all cartridges and toner, cleaned and recalibrated after start up. Still light printing on right side. Any suggestions??


Is the light printing the same for black and white vs color? Light printing on a side is not uncommon for these printers. It is usually caused by the laser optics getting dirty. But this usually shows up more in one color than the other. Such as something printed in yellow is fine while red is faded on one side. If the light on the right side printing is the same on all colors including black then I would suspect something with your transfer unit.
If you do notice that it us just on black or another color then it is definately time to get the laser optics cleaned.
