If printhead and white cable are ok what other causes printer pin not print

1. Ink Cartridge: The print head may not be able to properly print if the ink cartridge is not seated firmly in the printer or is damaged.
2. Printer Driver: Make sure that your printer driver is updated to the latest version and is compatible with your printer.
3. Bad Connection: Poor connections between the printer and computer can cause a printer to not be able to print. Make sure cables and connections between the printer and computer are properly connected.
4. Paper Jams: Paper jams can prevent the printer from printing. Clear any paper jams and make sure that any paper inserted is free of wrinkles, creases, and smudges.
5. Clean Print Head: Clean the print head regularly to prevent clogging of the nozzles. This will help improve the print quality and ensure that the printer can print properly.

Ink smudge on right side of paper

Chances are high that the process of clearing the jam has resulted in ink being released from the cleaning/resting pad area based over on the right hand side (where the printhead sits when not in use).
This waste ink has probable come into contact with the rollers and other parts over on the right edge of the paper.
You'll probably see this ink slowly fade out and disappear over time. If it doesn't however there's something effectively feeding things so check the resting pad for a loose tube, overflow, puddles, etc...
If there's anything like that, report back (preferably with images).

Smudged on right side

If cleaning the print cartridge with the built in slide does not work then you can lightly shake it. it may need to be replaced. Also the cleaning of the drum with denatured alcohol will clear that up sometimes.

About 1/3 of the way over, one vertical line of text in my resume seems to be bolded going down through the entire document. The rest looks fine, any ideas?

Sounds like a smudge on the encoder strip. The clear plastic behind the carriage assembly. if you hold the paper at the paper path the encoder strip will have the smudge in the same area as on the paper. you can clean it with a damp Q-tip...gently though

HP LaserJet wont pick up paper

Try cleaning the feed roller. It may have debris on it, making it slip. Use alcohol on a lint free cloth. Often you'll see on the paper where the roller slipped on the paper. There may be a dark smudge where the roller slipped. Check it out.

Poor quality smudge and ink blotting marks in the centre of any printed document

Try performing a test by printing a test page from Tray 1 and open the top cover as soon as the paper is 60% inside. The paper would jam below the toner cartridge before it reaches the fuser. Remove the toner cartridge carefully and verify if the smudges occur. This would eliminate the fuser. If the print quality is fine, then you need to swap the fuser.
