Blank Strip Down the Middle

My printer is printing with a blank spot down the middle of all receipts. Everything is good on the outer edges just an inch strip down the middle of the receipt. I cannot figure out how to fix it. Thanks.

My guess is the fuser needs to be replaced.

Sounds like the heating element is covered or broken in that spot.

My laser printer is printing with a blank strip down the middle of the page like the ink is out in just that section... the rest of the page prints fine! Is it the roller perhaps>?? Thanks

There is a **** on the toner if you pull it out of the machine and you should be able to look down in there and see all across the roller in there, sometimes the sticker gets moved in the way or something and wont allow the laser to write all the way across that roller. Make sure there is nothing in that **** causing this issue and if its clear then make sure that you have pulled the strip out of the new toner...

Blank strip down center of page

It's hard to say when I don't know what machine you have, but it could be the toner cartridge. If you have a cartridge pull it ou shake it gently and try another copy.
Good Luck

I have just tried to install new (HP) printer cartrige

Clean the static strip on the printer, details should be in the manual on how to do this. Also verify that your imaging unit and fuser are in good condition.

Prints out 2 labels at once

I've seen this be due to dirty sensor or misconfigured media setting.  Clean the sensor in the middle of the edge on the inside and outside of the printer, then if still having trouble - Inside the printer it should tell you that if you are having printing trouble:
  1. turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the feed button
  3. turn on the printer and at the third red flash release the feed button
  4. it will then feed some pages print some info and ask you to hit feed again to exit dump
  5. hit feed again and it will say exiting dump
You have just made it reconfigure media, and it may know when to stop feeding now.

The fuser film sleeve is more than likely torn. You can get just the sleeve and install it - or you can get the assembly. The p# is HM1-0237
