Asside from removing the toner cartridge and using a lint-free cloth or tissue to remove toner residue (or possibly using a can of compressed air to blow it out) there isn't much to be done to clean it. If you are getting ghosted images from a prevous page, your toner cartridge may be defective.

If you are using a refurbished or re-manufactured toner cartridge this would not surprise me. The only remanufactured toner company my clients have had any success with is Rhinotek, but i recommend sticking with the HP cartridge. Also if it is an older cartridge and infreaquently used it may still need to be replaced. If replacing the toner doesn't fix the problem after several test prints, then it is possible that the fuser is bad... in which case it's time for a new printer since the fuser is not replaceable.

The paper feed solenoid is sticking. There is a foam material that deteriates over time and becomes sticky. I remove what's left and put masking tape in its place.

Printed page not clean, faded characters in background of page. Any suggestions? I cleaned the pickup roller.


Hi,

Have you tried another toner cartridge? And when you say it has faded characters in the background? Does it look like it's reprinting the image kind of? If so, you will need the fuser unit replaced. The fuser is responsible for melting the toner to the paper, when it goes bad it can cause "ghosting" meaning it reprints previous images. A technician would be needed at this point, the part number for the fuser is RM1-1289.

Please let me know if there is anything else you need.

Black splotches on paper when printing


either toner cartridge is leaking or the fuser is bad and starting to hold extra toner- any chance of swapping toner cartridge or testing it with another printer (friends?)

HP LaserJet 2100tn prints ok but with 3 lines of strange characters over image


Is your transfer roller clean?
How does the drum look on the toner cart?
Is the fuser getting bad?

Would you consider this an old image that is ghosting?
