Question about HP LaserJet 2820 Printer

1 Answer

Line down the center of page

I'm getting a large brown line about 1" wide all the way down the page. I just recently changed the drum, and it seemed to work fine for a couple of days after that.. Could it be a defective drum unit or does it sound more like the Fuser Unit?

    As it turns out, it was not the fuser unit, but a DEFECTIVE DRUM. I was given 2 good answers; although not from this forum. One was a recommendation to put the old drum back in and print a page. The line was not there, so I put the new one back in, and printed again, and the line was there. That pretty much put the problem on the drum. Second good answer, I suspect, although I didn't test it, was to start to print, but stop in the middle before it has time to fuse the text on the paper. If the paper is blank, it is the fuser, but if the line is already there, it's the drum.

This can be a problem with the fuser , base from the description of the problem that you're encountering now and also you said that the drum is almost new...

I have a MFC7440n - it developed a line vertically just to the left of the center, not a clear line, kind of smudged almost 1/2 in. wide. can't seem to clear even when changing toner, air spraying, etc.


Check the drum life and replace it if near end. Clean primary charge corona wire if the drum is still new.
Most likely the drum cannot be cleaned properly by the cleaning blade due to wearing or cannot be charged before developing due to dirty corona wire.
If this cannot help check the fuser's hot roller for tearing/scraching and replace if necessary.

Black lines down on printed page


This is caused by dirt/debrise on the ADF (automatic document feeder) scanner glass. You need to open up the feeder where your originals are fed in and look for a strip of glass that runs from front to back. It is about an inch or so wide. You need to clean this glass to get rid of the lines. Some models have this glass just to the left of the large main glass, but in your case I beleive it is in the feeder itself.
Good Luck.

I am getting a faint line all down the page


Most likely you have a defective black toner cartridge. Open the front shutter on the black toner and look at the drum. If you see the drum has toner on it corresponding to the line down the page, you found the problem. If you can't see anything on the drum try printing a page and then interrupting the printout while the page is still in the printer. If you see the line on the page before it goes through the fuser, (the last roller thing on the top of the printer) then it still is the toner cartridge. If it occurs only after the fuser then it, the fuser, is at fault.

Canon Pixma MP 800 printing Issue (heavy black line on opposite side of print page


I have exactly the same problem with a Canon Pixma MP800, I have cleaned the rollers, changed the ink cartridges and reset the printer. It will print a few pages cleanly then dump black ink on the roller which leaves a heavy black line on the back of the page. It fades away after printing about 10 pages and then a few pages later appears again. The printer is two years old and it looks as if I must buy another. Should I buy another Canon?
