HP5550 Printer Problem – black line on all prints

  Nick Gilbert 23:01 22 May 2018

Hi, I have a problem with my HP5550 (HP Color LaserJet 5550dtn). It keeps printing a line across all prints. Please see examples of the problem uploaded to ImgBB.com

I’ve tried all different toners (completely different - new sets) and a different transfer belt but neither worked. Still shows the track line on all prints.

Does anyone know what would be causing this?

It could be a sign that the fuser is going. Apart from the line does the print quality look poorer than normal?

Are you experiencing frequent jams?

How old is the printer and do you have an estimate of how many pages it has printed in its life?
