HP LaserJet 5P printing all black pages
I've read the reply posted to the msg of 7/2/00 describing a similiar problem with a IIP.
The cartridge of the 5P, however, does not appear to hold the drum in place with a similiar screw assembly and hence
I have been unable to effect a repair analogous to that described therein (I am also
unsure of why moving the drum axel laterally should have an effect on the paper's (?)
contact with the drum).
Another symptom of the problem may be that toner comes out of the catridge onto the drum
even if it turned manually when out of the printer.
Thanks in advance,
