Black toner throughout page

Hi All- I am a desktop support guy, but since most of our printers are taken care of with outside maintenance agreements, I haven't done a lot with printer troubleshooting in a while. Attached is an example of print output on this HP CP2025dn. Looks like a black toner problem. Does anyone have any idea on a resolution? I've tried googling but get all kinds of extraneous information. Thanks-

No problem. Embedding the image (instead of attaching the file) would look like this:

Now, back to your issue. I suggest downloading the User Guide for the CP2020 from the HP site:

Note this on Page 112:
Vertical streaks or bands appear on the page.
Note this on Page 117:
Streaks in only one color: This is most likely a cartridge issue. Remove the cartridge and look for debris on it. If no debris is found and the defect continues after the cartridge is reinstalled, replace the cartridge.

First thing to do is switch out the toner cartridge - preferably with a genuine HP cart.

File was not attached, and image not embedded. Here's a quick-read article on it:
