Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer
I am using hp 1020, which was purchased before 2 years. The usage of the printer is very low due to home use.
After 3 month from my outdoor trip, i came back to my computer seat and started printing with some files.
But now it gives ghost image ( double printing + black shadows in the middle of the paper)
Any one able to help me please.
What i have to do next.
Inside is a cylinder covered with foam rubber. This probably removes unused toner. I tried cleaning it with rubbing alcohol. That helped a bit. It is possible to remove this cylinder., but I would not advise it.
For the intrepid, there is a white clip on the right that holds it in place. It is difficult to remove but can be done. Watch the gear on the right end; it may come off. Also note there is a spring behind the clip.
The metal strip the same length as the cylinder is probably magnetized to attract toner to the paper. Note how it is attached to the cylinder.
Removing the cylinder lets you clean all of it. It takes more cleaning than I gave it. :-( When I got it back in the printer, it worked. I may try it again.

I'm having the exact problems you are. I emailed HP tech. They walked me through several steps to try and fix the problems. None worked. The tech finally indicated that the printer probably needs service or replacement.

Toner cartridge could be bad.
