Two faint white horizontal lines

the white ghost lines are down to the charge wire within the toner cartridge being dirty, the only real way forward is to replace the toner cartridge as access to the charge chorona wire is not possible without ruining the cartridge itself

HP Laserjet P3005, everytime we print we get black speckles in 7 even lines across the paper. Why is this?

Usually caused by the toner cartridge, try replacing the cartridge. Especially if it is not a genuine HP cartridge they have a higher defect rate.

Hp laserjet 1000 series - installed new cartridge now a line prints every 3 inches on every copy

You have a bad toner cartridge.
Did you have the line with the original cartridge?
A line every 3" is the diameter of the toner drum.

My laserjet p3005 is not printing properly. there are 6 blank horizontal stripes across the page.

This is almost always going to be the toner cartridge. Swap it out if you have a spare. If not even if you have an empty one, just shake it a bit and put it back in to see if the blank lines go away. It is at least 90% chance or better that the problem is in the cartridge.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Copies are coming out with a dark horizontal lines and printer is making a rather loud sound when paper is in printing process.

Two things that can cause print quality issues and noise.
1. The toner cartridge can cause lines and sometimes can make a squeaking noise.
2. The fuser can cause streaking and smudges on the prints and can cause a grinding noise if the drive gear is worn or the bushings are worn.

We have put a new toner in but still we are experiencing lots of horizontal lines??

Check the fuser. If it is the fuser, you should be seeing 3 dark lines on the fuser film. Here is the picture about how the film looks like:

Changing the film usually solve the problem. However changing the film itself is difficult. You have to remove and basically disasseble the fuser, and change the film. However it is fairly cheap and if you decide you would like to save some money, here is the link available in ebay:

Or, simply search for 'P3005 Fuser Film' and you will find a lot.

Other than that, you can change the entire fuser. Please note that fuser for P3005 is not consumer installable part. You still have to take out some parts in order to change the fuser.

The parts are available from many parts supplier. Simply google 'P3005 fuser'. Usually around $100 for a refurbished fuser.

You can also recycle your old fuser and get some moeny! (about $15-$25 per fuser).

Good luck!
