The 8000n is not a color printer, not an ink jet machine. YOur problem can be only one of two things: bad toner cartridge or bad fuser.

Start by removing the cartridge from the printer. Pull back the drum door on the cartridge. Do you see dirt on that glass drum which corresponds with your print defect? If so it IS the cartridge.
If NOT, then it IS the fusing assembly, easily replaceable, no tools necessary. HP printers our only business.

There could be a problem in one of your drum, (4 pCS) to isolate w/c is w/c pls do this:

-print one of each color, M,C,Y,K(black)
- once you have identified that one of each is giving you problem pls replace the affected drum
- IF you printed all colors and still having the same line the problem is in the fuser section most likely the fuser roller or the pressure roller is either dirty or damaged.
-if it is dirty clean with alcohol while it is hot, gently rub (be careful it is hot) or cloth damped with oil will removed sticky toner adhered on its surface

cheers, dont forget to mark this pls

Hp 8000n is ghosting excess toner on prints. Why?


Perhaps, but first clean up the exposed parts of the printer where the toner may travel before it makes contact with the paper. Also, the fuser may need to be cleaned or replaced. Post your problem directly with HP on the HP website.

Black line on left side of paper


I forget the terminology but I believe there's either dirt or a sheet of paper on an internal roller.

My HP laserjet 3015 puts thick dark line down the copy


Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1). Print something. When the paper gets about 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover. Pull out the toner. Look down at the paper in the printer. Do you see a thick dark line? Replace the toner. No thick dark line, check the fuser for damage.

When you print each page has a gray/black line running down the page from top to bottom about 2.5 inches from the edge of the paper. Sometimes it is darker and other times it is lighter. We have tried...


While the line is showing up on the output pages.
Stop printing and put paper in the manual feed tray (tray 1).
Start printing again. As a page gets pulled into the printer about 1/2 way open the top cover.
Pull out the toner and look at the page inside the printer. If it doesn't have the grey/black line, get the fuser replaced. It is defective.

Have vertical cyan lines 1 inch wide on same side


Don't know about your "primed" toner, but go to Diagnostics and run the PQ test. See what that looks likes. Go to Disable Cartridge Check and swap the black and cyan toner. Run another PQ test. Are the lines still there and are they black or cyan? If they are cyan, the cartridge is bad. If they are black it's not the cartridge. It going to take a tech to look at it.
