Question about HP LaserJet 3055 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Lines on page

When we copy and receive faxes, dark lines show up on the page at even intervals, about 4 cm (2 inches) apart. We have changed the cartridge and this is still happening. The quality of the copy is quite poor.

As far as copying goes, it could be lines on the scanner glass. You might want to check that out.

Do you have any way of checking the condition of the drum on the cartridge to see if there are any lines on it. Find the drum cover protector by removing the drum cartridge straight up, lift the drum protective cover and see if there are any lines on the green surface. Try to keep it out of direct light as much as possible. Make sure you lift it straight up so no toner or developer spills out.

I've seen a few cases where the cleaning blade on the drum is defective. Usually you can return them and get a replacement at no charge.

Blank line down left side of outgoing fax or feeder copy


The most common cause of blank (void) lines on a scanned document is from whiteout on the glass where the page is scanned when using the document feeder.
If there is a clear mylar sheet on the bottom of the document feeder, the whiteout may be there instead.

If there was dirt or a dark smudge on the glass (or mylar), it would show up as a black line, but whiteout is white, and shows up as a void (blank) line.

All in one x7550 is leaving wide black lines on copies and even on faxes sent out--what's the problem??


The problem is likely the scanner. Both copies and faxes are scanned. Tell it to scan an image. Lift the top, so you can watch the light bar go down the page. Its most likely got a dark area.
If under warranty, make arrangements to get it repaired or replaced. If not it may cost as much as a new printer. It has to be taken apart to replace the part.

Vertical lines on photocopies/faxes


The MFC-7420 Manual recommends cleaning the scanner glass and white plastic bar above it with isopropyl alcohol. Page 11-22 has a diagram.

I am having a similar problem but cleaning it did not work. But try that first.

Lines across page


My metric to standard conversions skills are poor. But if 10 cm is equivalent to about 2 inches it sounds like the drum on the cartridge has gone bad from inactivity. Change the cartridge.
