From the control panel, go to diagnostics menu and then select PQ pages. This will print color diagnostics pages so that you can see if it is one color or all colors that have a problem. If one color then it is either the cartridge or the scanner. If it is all colors then it might be the high voltage board, or possibly one bad cartridge causing a voltage drop. If you recently changed a cartridge put the old one back in and try a test print.

Can I make convert my HP laserjet 3800n into a 3800dn so i could print double sided automaticaly ?


You will need to buy a 'hp color laserjet auto duplex unit' to effectively turn your 3800n to a 3800dn and change the printer onboard controller but cost would probably more than buying a newer model with automatic double side printing support ... It is technically possible but I would not recommend it.

The black is ghosting and text is fading out completly on right hand side


Hi

For ghost printing, i suggest you clean the fuser roller inside the cartridge compartment by a cotton swab with water and remove all the toner dirt on the roller. For faded print outs, the problem is the toner is near to end, Just replace new toner cartridge. Try also to shake the cartridge to distribute evenly the toner power.

Please let me know if you need more help

Fading black print


Is the toner orginal?
Try printing a test page and see how that comes out?
Try shaking the toner it might be stuck on one side.

Page is printed but fade


The toner cartridge is faulty. It is possible that when you pulled out the strip that the whole thing didn't come out. Return the cartridge (with a couple of printed sheets to demonstrate printing) and the receipt and you should get a replacement.

Color toners are empty


Press Green Tick, Right, -> System Setup -> Right, Right, -> Print Quality, Right -> Replace Supplies. Change from stop at out, to override at out. It'll let you print, and you'll get loads more out of your toner before the pages start to fade.
