    Well, it seems no one has asked you about that. It's a Laser printer and you are right about the Cartridge Toner, it has four cartridges, Black, Cyan, Yellow and Magenta. The possible causes are 1. Drum, 2. Overflowing Waste ink tank, 3. Fuser clogged with wasted toner.





    First, remove the drum and disassemble it, you'll see a small opening (close with a plastic cap), open it and remove all the Toner in it. You should handle the drum very carefully, and don't ever touch the drum bar. After it's removed, try printing again.





    If this doesn't improve the print quality, turn off the machine and remove the fuser unit (it should be located on the back side of the machine), look inside the unit very carefully and clean it with a very soft brush. After it's cleaned and cleared, reinstall it, then try again.





    It's also important to clean all the passage, to do this, first open the front tray, remove the drum and the fuser, take a blower (air can) or a vacuum cleaner and clean the passage with whatever you can.





    Now reinstall everything and try again.





    If the problem persists, you can try reinstalling the printer's driver with the current/latest updated drivers.





    Let me know if you have problem.





    Good luck.





    Thanks for using FixYa.

My HL2040 printer is printing black vertical lines along the right-hand side of the page, about 3" or so. A month ago I took it apart and cleaned the roller. Still doing it.


If the lines go all the way down the page, check the position of the corona wire cleaner tab (blue or green) at the top front of the drum unit. if not parked fully to one side it will create a solid black lines where it blocks the laser. Otherwise look for some other foreign object (or torn paper piece) that may be blocking the laser from the drum. If the lines are thin and shark, check for scratches on the drum (not repairable without replacing drum). If the lines are uneven thickness but in a pattern that repeats down the page every few inches, then the film on the drum is probably worn or wearing away and the drum needs to be replaced.

Hp 2600n line


after you have printed a few pages switch the machine off just as the paper leaves the fuser. then open the front cover and take a close look at the image transfer belt ( black plastic conveyor type belt)
use a torch shone accross the belt to better light the error- if you can see these Green/yellow/cyan lines on the belt then theres a good chance its coming from the toner units- ( also try print quality troubleshooting pages in the menus under diagnostics.look at the individual colour pages and look for any lines or Uneveness about the shaded colour) replace whichever toner is not printing correctly

When I print a color page, there is a multi colored line about a 1/2 inch thick along the left side of the paper. The print quality is good for everything on the page, just this line of swirled colors. ...


Run the Print Quality test. Sounds like one of the color cartridges is bad.
Also run the Disable Cartridge test. That will let you test each cartridge by itself.

Before you do that, open the front door halfway. Now you can see each of the color drums in each cartridge. One of them may have a 1/2" stripe on the drum on the left side.

Unit makes every noise and motion as if printing, but pages blank


First thing is if you haven't printed for while the ink may have dried in the print head. Run it through a few (lots) of print cycles and see if that starts to bring it back to life.

Check to make sure that you have the paper thickness set close enough.

My bet would be on the print head being clogged.

Vertical Thick Lines accross papaer on a HP Laserjet 3330


So the "White lines" went away when you replaced the cartridge, and now you have "dark Lines"?
It sounds to me like you have yet another bad cartridge. Is it remanufactured/ compatible?
Although, they can perform very well, they can also be awful depending on the source.
Return it and get another one, or different brand.

Will not Print


Try a hardware check of the printer first. To check the hardware of the printer, do the following:
  1. Switch off the printer.
  2. Load one sheet of paper into the paper feeder.
  3. Press the Power button and the Paper Feed button at the same time and hold them both down for three seconds. Then release the Power button only.
  4. When the printer begins to print, release the Paper Feed button. A page will be printed. The page should contain some text at the top and a series of horizontal color lines (cyan, magenta and yellow) below the text, with a thick black line below the colored lines. All the lines should be solid.
  5. When the test is complete, switch off the printer. NOTE: If you do not switch off the printer, it will continue to print.

Printer prints a line across the paper around three inch from the left hand side of the page.


Check your Toner Carts.
Is the line a certain color?
Black perhaps?

Lift the door of the toner cart.
If you see a streak on your toner drum, you will see a streak on your paperwork.

Look at your fuser as well.
Is there a problem with the big orange roller?
BEWARE! Don't touch the fuser roller its EXTREMELY HOT!
Let the printer cool down before inspecting.
