  • Color LaserJet Pro 200 M251nw: bad Color Laserjet Pro 200 M251nw print quality


    I've owned the above printer for 1 month and for the first two weeks, it worked fine. On his return from a week leave. When I now print the image resembles what I can only describe as if someone has dribbled water down causing the toners to face each other.  I cleaned and followed all the troubleshooting of things without success. I also checked the toner drums and they appear fine. Any help would be appreciated as I now seem to have a printer expensive usless

    Thank you


    Hi @Al24,

    I read your post and see that when printing now, the image looks as if someone has dribbled water down causing him the toners to face each other. I will definitely do my best to help you.

    You use Genuine HP Toner?
    What are the levels of toner?

    Make sure that the printer is connected directly to a wall outlet. (do not use a hub or a surge protector) This ensures that the printer is full on and can help this situation.

    Run the printer calibration.
    On the configuration of the system key touch printer, print quality, color calibration calibrate now.

    Print a diagnostic Page to see if you have the same results. Trying to determine if it is a hardware or software problem.

    Go to Setup, reports, arrow down and select diagnostic report.

    I have a document with several steps to run a clean and check the settings of the printer driver.

    Troubleshooting print quality problems.

    Make sure the paper type is selected and no paper said.

    Check if the drum unit for damage:

    1. remove the cartridge of toner product and check that the tape has been removed.
    2. check the memory chip for damage.
    3 examine the surface of the imaging drum on the bottom of the toner cartridge.
    CAUTION: Do not touch the roller (Imaging drum) on the bottom of the cartridge.

    His fingerprints on the imaging drum can cause print quality problems.
    4. If you see the scratches, fingerprints, toner or other damage on the imaging drum, replace the toner.
    5. If the imaging drum does not appear to be damaged, rock the toner cartridge gently several times and reinstall it. Print a few pages to see if the problem is resolved.

    The test pages come out the same?

    What kind of paper do you use?

  • LaserJet 1022 don't print Windows Explorer 9

    LaserJet 1022

    Windows 7

    When I have updated to Internet Explorer 8 to 9, I can't print with my Laserjet 1022. This printer works with all my other programs.

    I get the following error message: an error has occurred in the script on this page.

    Line: 2126

    Char: 1

    Error: Unexpected call to method or property access.

    Code: 0

    It looks like IE9 dislikes the print driver for your printer. The fix for this would be to uninstall IE9, or use a different browser like Chrome or Firefox (both linked below). A solution would be to use a different print driver for the printer. These instructions are below. I don't know which driver will work as a good replacement then you may need to try a few. Hope that helps.



    To use a different print driver for printers HP with Windows 7:
    1. click on the start menu.
    2 click devices and printers.
    3. right click on your printer.
    4. Select printer properties.
    5. click on the Advanced tab.
    6. click on new driver.
    7. click on next.
    8. Select HP in the first list.
    9 select a Laserjet driver form the list. You may need to try several to find a working one.
    10. click Next.
    11. click on finish.
    12. click on apply.

  • LaserJet Pro 200 m251nw: Laser Jet Pro 200 color ink bleed on black and white page after some use

    I print mostly black and white documents. I recently had 2 ink color of defamation in the pages that are supposed to be just in black and white printed. The first was the magenta, and it might discolor the entire page. The second was yellow, and it could fade just the left and right margins. It was two cartridges to Cartridge World, and they have done very well for some time after the installation or always had plenty of ink left when this problem occurred. The manager at Cartridge World has estimated that perhaps the part of the waste of the cartridge has been complete over time and flees to the ink. He said that for most black and white print still causes the drum on the cartridges of color to turn and empty the little ink in waste room. His suggestion was to get a second monochrome printer for most usage of my impression and just this HP product when the color is required. Who is? Other suggestions? If I replace the suspicious cartridges, print returns to normal, at least for a while.

    Hi @la1959,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I see that your HP LaserJet Pro 200 M251nw, color of ink smear on black and white page after some use. I'm happy to help with this problem!

    According to the website of Cartridge World,, it seems to me that these cartridges are rebuilt (refills). And, the information in this guide, can I refill the ink in my HP ink cartridge? States:

    Yes, you can. But what do you want? QualityLogic, one of the organizations of quality foremost in the world, has tested the performance of HP refurbished vs brand inkjet print cartridges (filled). Results: original HP inkjet cartridges ink far surpassed refills in print quality and reliability of printing.

  • LaserJet Pro 200: Impression of dark color LaserJet Pro 200 m251nw

    I recently bought and installed a printer of Color LaserJet Pro 200 and have noticed that when I print anything either in the color of the image is very "dark".

    When I print the example page, via the touch screen, the image seems very bright and vibrant. However, whatever it is printed via my computer throug h that an application is dark with almost oversaturated colors.

    I downloaded and installed the most recent driver from the HP site and nothing has changed. The printer is connected wireless to the home network and I tried not directly connected to the computer at the moment.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


    In the Printing Preferences screen (click Properties or settings of the print dialog box in the application used to print to access printing preferences screen), try disabling the HP EasyColor option in the color tab.

    Also try to select the themes of different colors like photograph (sRGB) or Photo (Adobe sRGB).

    You can see any difference with the results then?


  • HP Laserjet Pro 200 m251nw: I've got streaks printing on laserjet 200.

    All of a sudden, I have red streaks, printing on the right side of my documents. I tried using the cleaning page and it doesn't seem to help. I also have small black dots in various parts of the document which keep appearing on my documents. Cleaning that does not either.

    It seems to be a residue of red on the sponge roll just before the paper out of the printer. How can we clean this roller or must it be replaced to correct? I used my vacuumn to try to clean it up, but it doesn't do any good.

    Need help.

    Hey @AlaskaMariner,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!

    I understand that you have a problem of magenta print quality printing of your color HP LaserJet Pro 200 M251nw of the printer. I would like to help you to solve this problem today. Thanks for the troubleshooting steps you have already tried before reaching out for support, including.

    On this model of printer there no zones in the product that you can clean it manually. The only method supported this printer paper path cleaning and area of the cartridge is running the cleaning page. You may need to run the cleaning a few times page to fix this.

    Sometimes red streaks can be caused by a low toner cartridge. When toner is low, it can gather in some areas inside the cartridge and create a "streak". I can have you hold the cartridge by the sides and shake it gently from left to right to redistribute the toner. Once the cartridge has been shaken, reinstall the cartridge. Once your cartridge is re-installed, please test print to see if the problem of dragging is still happening.

    If the problem persists you can please click here for the steps of quality supported by your printer. "Once the document of support opens please run through the steps to"check toner cartridge status"", "make the diagnosis of additional print quality" and "inspect the drum unit for damage".

    If the quality issue persists you may need to try a new HP authentic to verify whether this problem is caused by a magenta cartridge faulty cartridge or the printer.

    The black dots that you see are often caused by a dirty paper path roller or fuser on your printer number. As mentioned previously, the only way to solve a dirty paper path would be to run several pages of cleaning. A defective fuser unit would lead to a replacement of the entire unit.

    Please reply to this message with the result of your troubleshooting. Good luck!

  • Color LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw multifunction - print that hangs or restarts printer after the print request

    I am using a LaserJet Pro CM1415fnw with a wireless connection and a USB connection, for several years with my MacBook Pro, spanning several evolutions of the Mac OSX (Mountain Lion, Lion, Mavericks) without incident.

    Today, no reason apparent, the printer started to expose the problems of processing printing orders sent, through the wireless and via the USB port.

    When you try a wireless connection, the print queue to fill up and the LCD will display printing in progress (with no impression caused), then the screen would just whiten and the printer would appear to restart, with the HP logo, and then subsequently return to the normal display mode, as if she was ready to print or copy, no matter.   No printing would take place, and the print queue would remain as if there is a current print job, with no impression caused.

    When you try to use the USB connection, the print queue indicates that a print command has been sent to the printer, but then, he did the same wireless, with the LCD screen goes white and apparently to restart the printer.  The print queue is populated, but printing never takes place.

    I have reset the printing system several times, removed and reinstalled the printer several times (wireless W USB connections), use the HP utility to try to install the printer, download and install the latest version of the driver for the device, rebooted the MacBook Pro, etc, etc.

    The ONLY thing that can print at this time is if I use the HP utility software, and receive information from device and then use the PAGE printing CONFIGURATION - then and then only, the printer responds immediately and prints the page, just as it was always in the past (until now!).

    I have tried everything I can think, for several hours, and can not understand what the problem might be.

    Any idea to solve this problem would be greatly appreciated!


    Thank you for your constant perseverance on this issue.  I forgot my post here, until I received a notification today about your response to date.

    Curiously, I "stumbled" upon the cause of the problem recently, and he had NOTHING to do with the printer or the MacBook Pro OS X (recently updated to Yosemite).

    It turns out that the problem was in the PDF file that I was trying to print!  Periodically, I'll print PDFs to a particular Web site, and it is these PDF files - exclusively - who made the mistake of communication between the computer and the printer.  The problem with PDFs is unique to the Mac OS X, because I can print the exact same PDF files from my laptop running Windows without problem.

    I have no idea what the "Bug" in the East of PDF files... probably never is, but given that I can do what I need to do with a Windows laptop, my problem is solved.

    I contacted the Admin on the website where I was printing the PDF files they offer, to make them aware of the situation.

    Thank you for your interest and your help!
