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.

I WANT TO PRINT MIRROR (IN REVERSE PRINTING) BUT THERE IS NO OPTION IN THE PRINTER. PLEASE IF ANY SOFTWARE DO YOU HAVE IN MIND FOR THE SOLUTION OF MIRROR PRINT ON HP 1020 PRINTER


go to your image and right click on it, click on "preview" once the preview screen is open look at the row of options (I"m assuming windows 7 op system here, but you can do this with XP too). anyway.look for the option "open" along the top, a row of choices will appears, choose "Paint" when paint opens you can see on the left an option to rotate, or flip your image, choose flip horizontal and you will now have the reverse image, save it to someplace you can find it and then it will print as you wish (reversed).

HP LASERJET 1020 JUST STOPPED PRINTING. THE IMAGE DIDN'T FADE WITH USE LIKE THE TONER CART WAS GOING. IT GOES THRU ALL THE MOTIONS BUT THERE IS NO IMAGE. CAN THE TONER JUST RUN OUT. REALLY DONT WANT TO...


Hi there !

You don't mention clearly the problem. If your cartridge is new, there will be no problem in it. The problem it the document, you are printing. Check the printing file document.

If you it stops printing, runs out of paper and red light is blinking. all you have to do is to open the cartridge door and closed it to resume on printing.

The usual sign of toner end is print out is getting faded until nothings printing.

If still the print does not print, just refresh your printer by turning it off and then turn it on again.

I hope it help you find the problem and Good Luck. Thank you for using FixYa !

My laserjet 1020 has a paper jam output message, i followed the instruction that appeared on the screen, but still, the message appear when i tried to print, there is also a red blinking light


Try to press the reset button on your printer if did not works just try to download the reseter of your printer in HP Laserjet 1020 at the HP website. Because your printer have a lifespan printing; example if your printer have a 100,000 copies to be print so you have aloud to print not more than 100,000 copies. That's why need to reset your printer using the reseter program by HP.

Hello,

When you go to print something next time, click on Preferences on the Print window. Click on the Advanced tab. There should be a Mirror Image choice and it probably says ON. Click on the ON and change it to OFF with the drop-down menu. Click OK. That should correct the mirror image problem.

As for the paper, I have a hard time printing on 4X6 paper too. Seems to be a common problem with HP. If you would like to accept the mirror image solution and post a separate on, you should get another expert to help you.

In the meantime I will try to research it further.

Thanks for using Fixya.
