Getting black marks and black lines on paper when I print??? Looks very unprofessional.

Check the drum on the toner cartridge.DO NOT EXPOSE IT TO THE DIRECT SUN LIGHT. Check for some oily spots on the drum.I f there it is clean them with a soft cloth. After this put a cartridge in the printer and make 2-3 test pages. If the problem still exist maybe you should try to disassemble the cartridge and clean the blade of the developer roller and drum cleaning blade. DO NOT TOUCH WITH OILY OR WET HANDS. Here is instructions for disassemble and for refilling the cartridge step by step

I hope this will help to you.

Ther is a black line of 5 c.m. on the left side of the paper. I cleaned already the cartridge but it stays.

Dipend of a kind of black line, it could be a broken fuser film on the left side of the upper fuser roller.

Hp laserjet 1200 series printer with high pitch nose when in printing process. During this loud noise, the roller turns but the paper is not picked up therefore printing does not occur.

noise is caused by the toner cartridge and paper is not going trough because there is a plastic milar clse to the feed roller that is bent,find it and push it towards the inside of printer (is a black or dark brown plastic mylar)

My HP Laserjet 1200 is screeching constantly

Probably the laser-mirror motor. It will screech until the load gives a error and the printer shows error/ is dead.
However, the motor can be lubed. Remove sides, remove screws found, remove top cover. Remove and open the black box containing laser. Remove motor board and lube the motor, dont get the mirror dirty. Asseble. Total time 15min...

If you cant get paper out from inside after removing cartridge then there is No easy fix, and the roller at rear is called a fuser, these parts dont come out easy,machine will need all covers removed, plugs disconnected and brackets removed, gears pulled off and fuser removed, maybe replaced if there is a reason why it wrapped around roller
