An ever-widening grayish band has started on one side of the printed paper. I can't remember if this is just a toner cartridge issue on my 4000N or not? Thanks.

HP 4000n spitting out extra toner. Replaced cartridge and still having the same issue. Any suggestions?


The laser printer actually has a collection area for excess toner located under the toner cartridge. When that is full you will get extra toner coming out and streaking your paper. Take the collection chamber out and clean that out or replace it and you should be good.

My copies have a thin blank streak about 1 inch in on the left side. the streak is about 1/4 inch wide and goes down the whole sheet of paper


Start a print or copy, and just as the trailing edge of paper is entering the machine; quickly open it to stop print and take out the cartridge and look at the drum and the paper underneath. If the issue is there at that point then it would point to the cartridge. If not then it is in the fuser area.

Clean the loose toner up with a dry lint free cloth.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

HP 4P band of grey on left side of the printed page. What should be done? change toner?


hi

very simple

Use the following troubleshooting steps to resolve this issue:
  1. The print cartridge is almost empty. Shake the cartridge gently to redistribute the toner, or replace the print cartridge.
  2. The print cartridge may be damaged. Replace the print cartridge.
  3. The printer's internal mirror may be dirty. Lift the print cartridge access cover, remove the brush from the underside of the cover, and clean off the mirror using the brush.
  4. use p/n 92274A for toner replacement
please issue 4 thumbs up

thanks for using FIXYA

Thank you Kitty but I'm not clear on how cleaning the Print Heads and replacing toner would fix this faded banding issue. I printed long Vertical bars of Magenta, Cyan, Yellow and Black. All colors fad at...


you need to clear the rollers and the heat drum (fixes the image and melts the toner onto the paper) if you have done any two sided copy, or have used paper with an image on one side, the ink may have gotten onto the roller and left a trace which would account for the banding being in the same place all the time. the rollers and etc are difficult to get at, and not really a job for amateurs

XC820. All copies have a 3/8" wide dark band


There are a few different issues that it could be, the feed rollers could be dirty, as well as the belts into the fuser. Be really careful when opening copiers. Toner is really small particles of plastic that melt with low heat. Use a Hepa filter vacuum cleaner so you don't create a large mess. I suggest rubber gloves, q-tips and put down drop cloths or newspapers to protect the area around the copier. be really careful, most of the belts are mylar and are easy to break. Remember that toner is heat sensitive, brushing can cause it to melt. just try vacuuming first. if you get any on your hands, use cold water and mild soap.

When copying or printing, there is a whitish strip down the center where the rollers are. Print in this area is very faint. Thank you for any advice.


Remove the toner cartridge and while keeping relatively level, shake it from side to side. Re-install and try a test print. If the light band has gone away then problem solved. It does mean that your toner crtridge is probably starting to get low on toner. 90% of the time, print quality issues on HP lasers are toner cartridge related.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Having an issue with my ML 1210. It prints these


The roller had an ink spot it it which is transferring to the paper. clean the roller carefully with some rubbing alcohol on a clean cloth. then let it air dry for 30 minutes before using it. Have the printer unplugged while you do this and use a minimal amount of alcohol, just a damp cloth will do the job.

Printing vertical grayish black ink on the left and right side of page


replace the toner cartridge, you wont have anything "dripping" out of it as the toner inside is a powder. if it still appears replace the fuser.

Quality of printing


For the black line check the toner cartridge roller (usually covered by a movable flap) to see if there is a black line on it. If not, then check the transfer belt (looks similar to a conveyor belt) for a line (probably not black in color, possibly white or grayish). If either of these parts have a line your best option is to replace that part. You could try cleaning VERY gently with a dry lint-free cloth but this may only clear up a little of the issue.

As for the fold, try running a paper path test, usually found under test, information, or diagnostic menu option on the printer itself. Try to find anything in the paper path that may catch the paper and cause it to fold.

Hope this helps!
