Lines are being printed on the page.

I have two hp laserjet printers. On one there is a vertical line that is printed across the page. I have shook the toner, and tried to blow out dust. I think it may need additional parts, any ideas? My other printer, prints out what looks like smeared ink all over the paper, but still prints what was on the documents. Any ideas on how to fix this without spending alot of money.

Hello jasonpiper01,

Do you have extra toner?  If so try to replace and see if it stops the issue.

Regards,

No extra toner. I shook it up. Any other way to test it?

Unfortunately as least to my knowledge the easiest way to test and eliminate stuff is to try extra parts...normally I would replace the toner as those seem to go defective or cause issues like those you are seeing.  If after replacement I still had the issue I would investigate further.  You can try swapping toner since you have two printers and see if the other printer gets the same line...then you have a toner issue.  Make sure they are clean and no toner sitting belwo the toner or other paper debris etc....

If not the toner then probably the fuser unit. Take it out and inspect the rollers. It will be obvious if the roller are dammaged or coated in toner.
