HP Laserjet 1100 Printer

I redesigned my letterhead and printed copies of it on A4 paper, this time using the header and footer facility in MS WORD 2007. I would do a letter on my Win98SE pc, slot a hardcopy letterhead into my HP Laserjet 1100 printer and print the letter out. Yesterday I did this using the redesigned letterhead, and the letter printed alright. However I noticed that after printing, the text which had been in the top part of the letterhead (the header area) had appeared faintly in the background of the body of the letter. Strange, because the letterhead had been designed and printed using another printer and there is no software relationship between the hardcopy letterhead and the letter which was typed on the Win98SE pc and printed on the HP Laserjet 1100 printer! I reprinted the letter using the old letterhead and this problem did not occur. I used the new letterhead to print a letter on another printer and the problem did not occur. Again I printed the letter on the new letterhead using the Win98SE pc and HP Laserjet 1100 printer and the problem recurred! What's up guys? Any HP Laserjet experts out there with a solution? Thanx.

Thanks PalaeoBill for your great comments, I think they are very good clues indeed. The printer I used for designing and printing the new letterhead is an HP Color LaserJet CP1215 printer. Please confirm if the characteristics of this printer as you may know them from experience etc. match with your suspicions/clues as given above? Thanks. I await your response.

PalaeoBill is spot on here. Inkjet inks will have ruined the drum in the laser printer because of the temperature that the drum works at.

The only other comment I have this seems to be a rather torturous way of going about things.
Would it not be better to have the 'Stationery' part of the documented[The letter head] saved as a template and loaded with each new document- which on completion 'Saved as' thus releasing the headed part[Template] back in its pristine form to the computer.

Thanks for all your generous comments and contributions, friends. I bought my HP Color LaserJet CP1215 printer from an HP Computers and Accessories shop, and all the toners I've used to replace ran-out/used-up toners in this printer, I have bought from this same shop/supplier so far. I have therefore assumed that all replacement toners used so far, including the set of toners currently in the printer are genuine. In any case, how do I determine which toners supplied are oem toners and which are non-oem toners? Please help me to resolve this problem and come out with a clear solution. Thanks in advance.

PalaeoBill, thanks very much for further explanation and clarification. I think I have a solution now. What I think I ought to do is print the letterhead on the HP Laserjet 1100 Printer, not the HP Color LaserJet CP1215 printer, and then use the same printer (HP Laserjet 1100 Printer) to print the main letter on the already printed letterhead and see what happens. Does this make sense? My only problem is that the HP LaserJet 1100 printer is attached to a standalone pc running Win98SE, and the flash drive I'll use to transfer the newly designed letterhead to the Win98SE pc is USB Flash II, for which Win98SE will need a driver. Can you link me to an appropriate driver? Thanks in advance.
