We have a HP Laser 2200 d that was bought in 2002. When we print it looks like the text is repeated on the paper all the way down in a residual ink. It is much dimmer and shadowy and overall looks dirty. I am not sure if I buy a new cartridge if this will be remedied or if this is somehow a bigger problem. We have followed the cleaning technique from the user manual and have called tech support, but our printer is out of warranty and they suggest buying a new one. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas?

If the glossy paper is rated for the printer you are using yes. Never use paper that is only rated for inkjet in a laser printer. Many special inkjet papers have coatings that will melt or break down due to the heat of a laser jet and may damage your printer.
When the printer is repeating text, ghosting, it's usually caused by the fuser. The best way to fix this problem is to replace the fuser in the printer. Depending on how much toner you have left and the price of a new fuser, it might be more cost effective to buy a new printer.
I have a psc 2355 printer which only prints half of text then the next lines are ok then it repeats only printing half text. I removed my ink cartridge and wiped the ink ports with a tissue heavily moisten with water. Repeated this several times and then gently dried with a tissue. The problem was fixed!!
