HP LaserJet 2100 Series Printers - Cleaning the Toner Cartridge Drum
During the printing process, paper, toner and dust particles can accumulate inside the printer. Over time, this buildup can cause print quality problems such as toner specks or smearing. Cleaning the toner cartridge drum can correct and prevent these types of problems.
This process cleans the drum inside the toner cartridge. Use this process if you are experiencing blurred, faded, or smeared printouts. This process will take about 10 minutes.
NOTE: Make sure the toner cartridge is not empty when using the toner cartridge cleaning. A near empty toner cartridge may also cause print defects. This 10-minute process consumes toner and if used often can reduce toner cartridge life.
