hp laserjet 5L smears prints

My 5L was sitting unused for awhile. Now, when i try to print, the paper goes through fine, but comes out with about 3 smears, each about an inch tall , and across the whole paper. One smear will be near the top, one around the middle, and one near the bottom. I've taken the basic parts out (toner, ect...) and dusted them off, but its still the same old cartridge from about 1-2 years ago. would changing the cartride stop the smearing, or are the rollers dirty. Thanks for any help.


Change the cartridge.
