    We are also experiencing 2 green lines down any printed item. It appears to be dust on the black glossy paper inside but reappears each time I remove it.

    I got it fixed after a few days with the HP trek, and yes it was that my cyan toner was leaking they sent me a new one and it works fine.

    I did not think it was the toners as it was over 49% full, I am a Happy camper now

    hope this info will help future folkswith this trouble

Leaking toners

    the first step to any print quality issues is to replace the toners one by one. that goes for any printer.

My mp161 is showing a dashed line on the right side of the paper. Visible even if I copy a plain white paper ... dashed line still shows. Checked the pcu. No issue.... checked on the transfer roller... I...

first clean the inside of the printer as there might be tiny strips of paper that cling to the print head assembly, second open the scanning area and clean the camera as tiny lines came from dust that was being read by the camera as an image.

How to print on both sides of the paper in canon lbp2900?

If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printercannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn thepage upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for therest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up onboth sides of the page so it reads correctly.

Black line on copies

press function 6-4 start and let that print .. if you have no lines then the machine is the scan glass..

to clean scan glass open the control panel door but not the toner door.. you will see 2 green plastics on either side of the machine.. press them both towards the center and lift..when done properly you will lift the white plastic plate about a 1/4 inch.. tilt that up and clean the glass with windex or alcohol..

if this does not work you need a tech because you scratch the glass

Re-fitting an oven door

1. Open the front door you did
2. Open the clips at the hinge housing (2) on
the right and left hand sides of the front
door by lifting them up. you did
Hold the door onboth sides and then close the door and lift
the door up to remove it. assume this is what you did. Refitting is the reversal of removal.

HP 2840 Jam in Print Paper Path

There are 2 primary paper sensors. One is the registration sensor where the paper feeds in, the second is associated with the fuser unit.

The first sensor is located under a cover under the transfer unit.
i) Open the door
ii) Lift out the transfer unit (Q3964A)
iii) Locate the black plastic cover plate with a small green flap in the centre. This assembly is directly under where the transfer unit was installed.
iv) There are 2 shiny screws that secure this cover plate. Carefully remove these screws.
v) Lift out the black cover plate by lifting the left section up first which allows the right section to come clear of gears.
vi) Check for paper obstructing the small movable lever under the cover plate.

vii) To reinstall the cover plate, insert the right hand side down first and line up with the mounting holes.

I can supply photos if required.

Printer leaves black spots on paper

The black spots mean you either need a new imaging drum, transfer kit or fuser. You'll have to print some stuff and try to catch where the black marks are appearing. Try this method (it's called a Half-self test)

Load 2 -3 sheets of letter paper in tray one (manual feed) and remove paper from the rest of the trays.
From the information menu, request a demo page
The MOMENT the tail end of the paper disappears into the printer, open the right door. Open the front doors and release the levers for the imaging drum and the transfer drum. Carefully remove both pieces and examine your paper.

You should find the paper partway on the transfer belt but not in the fuser. If you see black marks here, start with the imaging drum. Open the shutter that covers the sea green shiny roller and look for marks on the drum (you'll see build up on the edges, that's normal, you should not see any scratches, pockmarks or toner on the center of the drum). If it looks clear, take a look at the transfer drum for marks or cuts on it's surface. (note: the transfer drum can be cleaned off with a dry lint free cloth, do not touch the shiny sea green roller of the image drum)

If everything looks good there, then likely the black marks are coming from the fuser. Let the printer sit, turned off for about half an hour to allow the fuser to cool. You can then remove the fuser and look at the rollers to see if there is any build up or damage there.

If you are not seeing any obvious issues with any of these parts, then start with the imaging drum. If you know that any of these parts have never been changed, then change them as they do have a limit to how many pages and how much time they can be used for.

Printing problems

Hi there check that it isn't the drum unit by turning the machine off open the top cover remove the toner and underneath you will have the dev unit unplug and lift out then remove the transfer tray (the one you open if there is a jam) open side door remove waste tank then you have the drum unit now to remove there is either a push button or a screw do either one that corresponds and check the unit. If there is a black line on one side the only way to get rid of the line is to replace the cleaning blade as this has worn. you can clean the drum unit cleaning blade it may only be toner stuck under the blade all you have to do is rotate the drum the opposite way of operation and if you have to hand a air line just give it a blast failing this it will defently need replacing.

Hope this is of some help
Please rate me
