Question about HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One Printer
Depending on when the line shows up, this will determine what needs to be done. First print out a report from the internal memory. Just press Setup then the right arrow until you see reports, then press ok then if it says demo page or whatever report is listed press ok again. If the printed out report is clean with no line then you need to clean your scanner "strip" glass. This glass is located under the operation panel on the bottom side. Just grab the operation panel right where the documents are fed in. Lift it up and look inside for the strip. It has a silver strip as par of the glass bar. Just clean this bar very well with a cloth that has a little glass cleaner sprayed on it. Once cleaned just close it back and make a copy to see if the line is gone.
Now if your initial printed out report from memory DOES have the line and since you have changed the toner with no change then the problem most likely is a fuser film going bad.
The most likely problem is the scanner glass, but the fuser film is also a possibility. Basically the scanner glass will only affect copies and outgoing faxes. PC print outs and received faxes would be fine.
The fuser film would affect PC Prints, Copies and Incoming Faxes. Outgoing Faxes and Scans would be fine.
Hope this helps.
Thank You for using Fixya.

This is almost for sure going to be a fuser fixing sleeve defect. I just repaired one of these the other day. An easy way to tell for sure is to print a page, and pull out the power cord when the page is halfway through the printer. Open the back and pull out the paper. More than likely you will see the defect on the portion of the page that has gone through the fuser (directly behind where the paper comes out, but not on the part that hasn't. This can be a reliable repair if done by an experienced tech. I usually charge $75 to do this on this model. Make sure if you get the repair done that the tech uses only a brand name fuser sleeve. If you are in the sacramento, ca area, I can repair it for you.
