Question about HP LaserJet 2420 Printer

1 Answer

Double immage When I print a page not economy, there is a faint double image on the paper. It looks as if the drum [or whatever it is] is dirty with old ink rather than being clean. Can I clean it myself?

    I will take it back to Staples where I bought it, tell them what you said, and see if they can fix it. I talked with a worker at the store on McKellips & Greenfield today. He said he would be glad to take a look at my printer and see what he could do if I would bring it in. Thank you, Milli

Most likely the the teflon coating on the heat roller is worn or damaged, or you you have fluctuating thermistor voltage.
Either way the fuser unit needs to be replaced. This should be done by a technician.

Print is fully black


often when the exposure lamp burns out, all your copies will come out black. The light reflects off the immage to the drum to create the copy to be printed to the paper. If the light is out, all the drum will see is a black image to be printed. Make a copy with the cover open, and see if the light turns on.

Printed copies have ghost images on them. I have never had this problem before., It looks like the image printed twice - once fine and then faint horizontal lines, sometimes some of the previously printed...


1) try doing a full clean from within the menu on the printer, or within the computer software
2) You need to perform a half test. Put a sheet of paper on the manual feeder and do a config page from the information menu on the printer. When the back edge of the paper enters the printer, quickly open the toner door to stop the printing. Now remove the toner cartridge and look at the image below. If the defect is present, then the toner cartridge is the problem 99% of the time. There is a slight possibility that during the conditioning stage of the print process the drum of the toner is not being fully discharged so when the next stage takes places part of the previous image gets put on the toner cartridge again. Very rare. If the defect is not present then the fuser has an issue.

My printer canon ir 2022 prints faints and blank pages, what can be a problem and how to fix it?


Hello,
first You must check, if the image is on the drum. To do these, start print and when you hear that paper is in drum section open the left door and look at the drum surface for the toner image on it.
i.e.
If the image is on it and it looks solid, check the transfer roller or replace him. Also clean the laser unit ( lenses and polygon mirror ) and change the drum unit. It can also be the problem with toner station.
i.e. the cylinder doesn't turns or the there isn't toner on cylinder.

It can be a bunch of things, so without seeing the machine it is difficult to say what is the problem... but, in most cases, the problem is in dirty laser unit or in transfer roller.

Quilt y of print !, it gives double printing on page one is print of original doc.& second as its image what should i do to improve its print quilt y. i will be thank full to you


Hi,
Dots, Lines, shadows and smudges on the printouts are due to dirty/ deteriorating cartridge and cleaning the green drum of the cartridge may help temporarily. Take out the cartridge and gently clean the roller/ green drum with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth wiping off the toner dots marks/ lines.
Also, make sure that the visible inside of the printer is clean and ther is no spilled toner inside, which sometimes results in dots. Double printing is also due to the deteriorating cartridge. The drum is not getting clean after its each rotation and hence the remaining toner/ image is transferred to the paper resulting in double printing. So, it is recommended that clean the drum etc (this would help temporarily). Also, make sure that the toner cartridge is in good working condition. If not you may replace the cartridge.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.


GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

Printed image repeats later


I have a Dell 5100CN, and believe that this problem is caused by the drum not releasing the full charge which holds the ink in place on the drum until the page is printed. After the image is transfered to the Drum, the 'Fuser' unit heats up the paper and pressure forces the paper against the drum to transfer the toner from the drum to the paper.

Since the Image is printing, and you are getting a ghost, I guess that the problem is most likely the 'Pressure Roller' or 'Heater' in the 'Fuser' unit.

Buying the Fuser unit from Dell could cost you around $200 from Dell, but I just found one on eBay for $129 Got to www.ebay.com and search for item number 190388919845

I highly recommend that you buy a new OEM (original Equipment Manufacturer (Genuine Dell)) 'Fuser Unit'

Good Luck

Our Laser printer doesn't print on the left had side of the paper--well, very faint--the right side is just fine. I just replaced the cartridge. What is the problem?


If your printer prints like this:
657b300.jpg with the any color printing faintly down the page, then the problem is with the developer blades in the imaging unit. What happens is there are metal blades that meter the amount of toner that gets put on to the drum that makes the image on the paper. The toner is made up of fine particules of plastic. As the printer prints, some of this toner collects on the edge of the developer blades causing less and less toner to make it onto the page making the print look faint.

To correct this problem, you either need to buy a new imaging unit or clean the developer blades. There is a document on the internet that gives a detail instructions on how to do this, but, the link no longer works. I have a copy of this document, I will try to post it if people are interested.

When printing the sheet of paper has 3 dots on the


Yes this could be the drum.

You could remove the drum and carefully look for the pattern of dots etc that you are getting on the page but on the drum surface.

I would suggest replacing the drum 1st and retrying.

If the black lines are just down one edge then the fuser could be to blame for the black marks but without being able to see the page i cant tell. The drum is certainly my 1st suspect and is easy for you to try.

Since replacing the fusing unit on my Magicolor 2530DL, I am getting very light prints. Can you give me some ideas about how to resolve this?


faint prints wont be from the fuser. if u can physically rub the image off the paper with your hand then your fuser is faulty. check condition of the drum unit. if a new drum doesnt fix this then u have a dirty laser which will need a tech to clean.
