Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer

3 Answers

Printing goes like a mirror image or double printing of same message in a paper

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.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.
