HP LJ 1200 issue

Yesterday in the middle of a print job, my HP LJ 1200 started to make a little squeak during the print process... just one little squeak about halfway through each page.

That's annoying but the real issue is that now the bottom half of each page is brushed with toner... almost as if the print density setting is increased too much. No toner rubs off the page, and the top half of each page prints perfectly.

I've tried changing cartridges (I only use new from HP) and opening the printer to blow out the inside with canned air. I'm afraid to do anything mechanical without instruction, but I can't find this problem listed anywhere.
