If you haven't already, get a driver here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=15034&lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=25486&taskId=135 and install it over the old one. If text is missing at the bottom of the page, this usually means that the application is attempting to print outside of the printer's printable area. Most printers, including HP LaserJets, can not print right up to every edge of the page. Adjust the bottom margin upwards in Word. Usually, in Print Preview anything outside of the printable area as known by the printer driver will not be displayed. This is not guaranteed to work since there are many way things can go quirky, but it's usefull to try. Can't tell you much about the alignment though, hope you work it out.

you have something blocking the laser. if you remove the cartridge, look behind where it sits and you'll see a small line of glass going across. here you'll find its either covered in toner at the side your missing print or there is a ripped piece of paper. clean with a clean cloth or air duster

Print is extremely light, almost non-exsistant on the HP LJet 4L

You need to clean the narrow window above where the cartridge sits, it gets covered with toner, just use a soft cloth. If still not better you may have a defective new cartridge.

Old LaserJet 4L working perfectly. Just bought new generic toner cartridge and now getting shading over entire page, turning paper an almost-even gray, darkest at left edge. I'm suspecting cheap cartridge...

You're right about the cartridge and I suppose cleaning it means all the toner that the generic cartridge dumped. Turn off the machine, take out the cartridge and use a vacuum cleaner and a soft brush to get that extra toner out. After that use a soft cloth (not terry) to wipe down the inside.

New toner, still get lines on paper when printing

Is there toner streaks on the drum?
Remove toner cartridge and push back the drum cover (on bottom)to check. Could be just another bad cartridge.
If the drum is clean, then it's coming from the fuser. You can have it replaced /rebuilt, but I personally wouldn't spend any money on this one.
