Question about HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Lines in print page

My 3050 is relatively new and within 1 week of installing it I was getting thin lines down the pages printed. Sometimes one on the left but often one on both right and left. Is there a cleaning function that would solve this?

Replace toner cartridge if this is the original toner or a rebuilt.
the starter toners are notorious for going bad in the wiper area

HP Deskjet 3050 missing lines when printing


Since the print head(s) are installed into the cartridges themselves, it makes this easier to troubleshoot. First, are all colors affected or just black? You don't say whether or not the cleaning pages and alignment pages are printing properly so I assume they have the same problem. Next, are you using genuine HP cartridges or are these remanufactured/aftermarket units? Non-genuine cartridges are often remanufactured many times over and eventually fail in use. If they are genuine cartridges, and if the problem appears to be only with either the black or the color cartridge, but not both, try another cartridge. New cartridges can be defective. IF that is the case, contacting HP about it should get you credit for a new one. If the problem is related to both cartridges and new ones don't fix the issue, then the problem is in the printer itself and there isn't much you can do about it other than replacement since printers are so inexpensive that repairs are not cost effective.

Why do I get bleed through of print on pages I print out at bottom of page or shadow print on some?


Paper is too thin (use higher "pound" paper).
-or-
Toner is not of good quality (use HP Brand if possible)
-or-
Printer is set to dark or heavy in your page setup (change to normal or even light)

You can also make sure you are using an HP print driver instead of a generic print driver. Go to HP.com and search print driver for you model, download and install (if you don't already have an HP printer driver loaded on your PC).

When trying to print Avery Labels L7160 the top few labels print within each label 'frame' BUT towards the end of the page the labels are printed further up and therefore are out of the label 'frames' ALSO...


For Word 2007/Word 2010
1- Click on the Office button
2- Select Print then Print again.
3- In the Zoom section make sure 'Scale to paper size' is set to 'A4'
4- Click on the Properties button.
5- Click on the Paper / Quality tab, then click on Advanced.
6- In the Paper/ Output section it has Paper size. To the right you have a drop down menu . Make sure A4 is selected and not letter, then click on OK.

3- There may also be other options in your printing preferences such as 'Print Area', 'Scale to Fit Page Size' or 'Page Margins. These will all need to be set correctly for your design to print 100% e.g. Print Area set to Maximum, Scale to fit Page Size disabled and Page Margins set to Minimized.

Some printers ( for example Epson printers ) have a 'Reduce /Enlarge' facility that defaults to 94% or 97% (instead of 100%). To set this to 100% click the 'Layout' tab and in the 'Reduce/Enlarge' section select 'Custom' you should then be able to change the scaling to 100%.

My Brother HL1230 printer prints with whole lines of text missing several times on a page and gets worse by missing more lines if printing several pages. It has a new toner cartridge. How can I sort this...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck
RK

The fuser is located in the back of the printer. I think it's held in by to screws. It's about hte same size as the toner cartridge. Please visit these websites.

HP 3050 vertical black lines during fax


OK, from the desciption i can assume several things here are some option.
If by receipt you are talking about the confirmation the unit prints the the problem is likely dirty glass.
You would also get the lines when you make a copy using the ADF.
Open the lid there are two areas of glass the thin strip is likely dirty and needs to be cleaned.

If by receipt you mean pages you receive from someone else, and not printed or copied on your machine, then their machine has the condition described above.

If everything has the lines then you have a toner or fuser problem:
This is the test to determine toner or fuser issue.
Print a test page
When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top to stop the machine
Remove the toner cart.
You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser)
If you can see the smudge or marks on the page the problem is most likely the cartridge but NOT the fuser.
If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.
Hope this helps

HP laserjet 3050 prints skewed vertically


250-sheet input tray (tray 1)
The input tray holds up to 250 pages of 80 g/m2 or 20 lb paper or fewer pages of heavier media
(25 mm (0.9 inch) or less stack height). Load media with the top forward and the side to be printed
facing down. To prevent jams and skewing, always adjust the side and rear media guides.
NOTE When you add new media, make sure that you remove all of the media from the input
tray and straighten the stack of new media. This helps to prevent multiple sheets of media
from feeding into the all-in-one, which can cause jams.

Hope this helps if not you may have a registration roller problem.

I have a thin line all the way down the page when making a copy.


Check scanner glass and clean. Further test - Scan from the computer. If the line is still present, the scanner CCD is failing and requires service as there is no user servicable part inside.

Printer putting line down the page


I had a hp 3050 yesterday with two vertical lines running down the page when making a copy. All I had to do was to pull open the top cover where you put the paper you want copied and cleaned the glass strip with a rag and alcohol and the lines were gone.
