There are to possible things that my cause this problem.The first is dirty laser scanner unit(LSU) wich is located under the top cover door.It looks like a little craveis.To clean the LSU you need to remove all covers(to remove them you are going to need a little expirience with those kind of things or you may dmage the printer)and you will see a little black box on top of the printer.Thats the LSU.Open the unit and clean the glasses inside.The second thing that may cause the problems is worn out gear of the main toner cartridge carrier(It the big will that holds the toner cartridges).If the gear has worn out the right side of of the toner cartridges aren`t making good contact with the drum unit and they can`t put oner on it.If the first part doesn`t help to solve your problem you need to buy a new part!Please replay if you need any futher help.

Pint on the right side of the page only left side is blank

Hi, take the toner cartridge out and shake it left and right (horazontaly) not up or down or tipping it. Place back in unit and print one page. Does it now print on both edges? If so just replace the toner cartridge as you are running low. If that does not solve the issue contact me again.

I have a hp 2820 and it only prints on the right hand side

If you make a copy and it only prints one side, the problem is the CIS. The CIS is the strip that lights up when the paper goes through the document feeder. If it is only lighting on on one side, this is your problem. It could also be a problem with the laser unit.
If you print an internal document, such as a report or help page and it is only printing on one side, then the problem is most likely your drum unit or toner. Good luck

The printer prints on right hand side while left hand side is blank

Reinstall the printer driver, for starters. failing that take the toner cartridge out, give it a gentle shake end-to-end so that the toner powder inside is fluffed up, and then put it back. You may need to change the cartridge completely. HP lasers are usually pretty good.

Hp 2820 prints only on right side of page

Yes, you will need to replace the drum unit as well. be sure to shop around so you can get the best price because some people mark up the price for that part. You can check the status of your supplies from the printer itself by pushing the "menu" button the printer and scrolling through until you see something about supplies status then press the check mark button.

Left side of page prints blank

Hi there in the paper handling menu check the paper size settings as it maybe as simple as the incorrect paper size has been set in the machine

Hope this works for you
