You are probably getting low on toner. Your printer also might just need a little cleaning. I would open up the front of the printer and take out the toner/drum. Wipe off the edge of the toner cartridge with a dry cloth to remove excess toner. Replace the toner cartridge and see if this works!

I am printing pictures and they have a white line running through them, what can i do

Does the white line appear in all colors? Or is it limited to just one color? Try printing some full pages of each color (use a gray scale to save on toner, 50% shade should do). If the line appears in only one color, then replace that toner cartridge. If all three colors, then replace the drum.

Hp laserjet 3055. after printing labels, a few at a time, over and over. The label paper is no longer white, it is gray. The label paper picks up dirt from the printer.

Labels are a problem, as they really kill the printer, if they come off. It sounds like your issue may be that you need LASER labels, which are less affected by the temperature of the laser cure process.

I am curious if there is an easy way to print and change positive to negative. What I mean is I want to print a recipe out of a magazine that has a ligt printing on a dark background. Rather than use a ton...

Yes you can but it's called setting the print color to "black and white" only. This way the solid black page will be just a very light gray and uses less ink.

To change the print color to "black and white", go to your printer icon in Control panel and right click on your primary printer (the one that is on default). Next click the button "printing preferences" or click on the tab that says the same. Click on the tab that says paper / quality and choose the "PRINT BLACK OR WHITE" option.

That should help you save your black printing problems.

Let me know if this worked for you ok?

Printer cant print in black and white

This happend to me also and I finally found out that the printer uses collor cartidges for GRAY printing. The back cartridge is used for BLACK printing ONLY. So if the printer was short of one collor in my case it was magenta (red) the gray parts of BW prints started to be green!!! When I put new magenta cartridge to the printer gray was gray again...

Printer not feeding

The paper you're using IS very thin. However, the printer should take it as you've already run 50 pieces through (assuming successfully). Sounds like the pressure roller in the machine has lost some of its grip; it can accumulate dust and fiber from the paper over time.

Two things I'd try ..... with the machine unplugged, remove the paper from the feeder. Look down into the openning; you'll see a larger white/gray plastic housing on the right side which covers a rubber roller. Take a small lint free cloth (like an old cotton T-shirt piece) and dampen it with some isopropyl alcohol. Rub the rag on the roller. Let it dry a minute of so, and try to feed paper through the printer again. You could also try to very lightly apply some alcohol on the bottom edge of a piece of statndard paper and feed it in. As long as you only put a small amout of alcohol on it should be OK .... don't saturate it. A two inch strip would be fine. This will help coat the roler and then dry it out as it feeds through the printer.

Good luck.

My HP 2900n is turning the white paper gray on everything. How do you clean the roller?

Check the Density settings first and might as well check Brightness and Contrast.
