You don't want to clean the drum. It is done automatically as the drum rotates. The cleaning blade scrapes the residual toner off of the drum.

If the drum is not getting clean then you have to replace the cartridge.

Paper jam in HP printer p3005n printer in between paper sensor+fuser assembly & toner

These printers have a problem with the bushings on the fuser, as they wear the gear drive moves away and you nolonger have drive to the fuser. HP has a kit, you replace the fuser and the gear driving it. At the same time, you should also replace the feed roller, both are simple to do with a phillips screw driver.
for your parts.

check for possible toner leaking, or change new toner for that model, and clean also fuser roller side.

Check one of the followings:
Paper jammed anywhere visible? Rollers, etc?
All the trays are closed properly?
Toner, Drum Unit or the Fuser Unit don't need changing?

See if you can print out the Printer Status of the Printer from it's menu which would give you some statistics of what needs to be replaced etc.

Contact your HP Dealer nearest you to fix that problem, it could still be under warranty so there'll be no added cost to you.

All the best!

We have put a new toner in but still we are experiencing lots of horizontal lines??

Check the fuser. If it is the fuser, you should be seeing 3 dark lines on the fuser film. Here is the picture about how the film looks like:

Changing the film usually solve the problem. However changing the film itself is difficult. You have to remove and basically disasseble the fuser, and change the film. However it is fairly cheap and if you decide you would like to save some money, here is the link available in ebay:

Or, simply search for 'P3005 Fuser Film' and you will find a lot.

Other than that, you can change the entire fuser. Please note that fuser for P3005 is not consumer installable part. You still have to take out some parts in order to change the fuser.

The parts are available from many parts supplier. Simply google 'P3005 fuser'. Usually around $100 for a refurbished fuser.

You can also recycle your old fuser and get some moeny! (about $15-$25 per fuser).

Good luck!

Hp 2200D laserjet dirty copies

Toner and the drum is all one unit it is more likely that toner got onto the transfer roller and some near the fuser unit. Best thing to do is turn the machine off open the cover and remove the toner cartridge.

Then Hoover (vac) the inside with a soft brush and clean out all the loose toner. Once that is finished install toner cartridge a run about fifty sheets through to get rid of any other toner. Suggest installing a new toner cartridge as well.

Hope this helps you and please rate me
