Question about HP LaserJet 1100 Printer

1 Answer

Blurred Spots Hello, My toner was just replaced, but I keep getting random light blurred spots on my pics and documents when I print. I changed the toner to try to fix it, but it has not fixed the problem. Do you have any ideas on what I can do. Hopefully the picture will help you see what it's doing. Thank you. Jeff Price

Could be the fuser or a bad toner. Take the toner out and shake it.

Oki mb470 pages are not printing properly

It may be time to replace the drum. Check to see if the light spots are random or if they appear at regular intervals. Regular intervals would indicate something in the paper path, typically the drum. But don't rule out the fuser.

Checking the print cartridge
Image-formation defects are frequently the result of problems in the print cartridge. If the source of the defect is not immediately evident, always replace the print cartridge before troubleshooting image defects.
Use the following checklist to make sure that the print cartridge is still operable.
? Make sure that the print cartridge is seated properly.
? Check the print cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
? Inspect the print cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
? Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to see if it has been damaged or
scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting
and image defects.
? Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the cartridge has been
overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.
To redistribute the toner in the print cartridge
Before installing a new print cartridge or when the toner begins to run low, redistribute the toner by
rotating the cartridge back and forth five or six times.

Printer sqeaks loudly when printing. Also there

Sqeaks are hard to fix over the computer but if the black spots are random change the toner cartridge. If they are 3 or 4 to the page change the drum.

Right side of the page after it prints is blurred or faded. We have replaced the toner and the drum

When you remove the toner and drum unit out of the machine look inside where it was, look up inside that spot where the drum was and you will see a glass window that is about 3/8 of an inch deep and maybe 8 to 9 inches long, it is likely a film of toner is on that glass blocking the laser light from hitting the drum properly. Just use a dry lint free cloth and wipe that glass down and you should be good to go. Remember look up in the spot where the toner was it can be easy to miss it.

Your printhead has burned out nozzles, the black is the most used and first to go. It switches nozzles during printing for even wear, that's why every few lines you get bad spots.You need a new printhead.

My print jobs keep coming out with smears in certain spots and now the entire print job is blurred. I've cleaned it several times. How do I correct that myself?

If the entire page is blurred, it is probably a dying wave amp board. Time to start shopping because the repair bill is more than a new 8560.
