Right side of page doesnt print correctly

Posted on 2010-01-04

One of our employees is using a hp laserjet p1006 and when she prints, the right side of the page comes out in a light to almost fade text. I have changed the cartridge, shook the ink and nothing seems to work. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

    Does it only happen with the one user?
    How does a printer generated test page appear?

    Yes it only happens with her printer and the test page comes out fine on the left side but starting mid page on the right the text is faded.

    Recent or over some time?
    Transfer roller or image drum would be my main suspects
    if either then the p1006 really isn't economic to repair
    Might be worth trying to clean the roller with alcohol though.
