HP Laserjet IIIP problem

About a third of the time the printer will cover the whole page with ink. Could someone enlighten me as to what the problem could be.


Bad hv connection to the toner cartridge. If you look on the left side of the printer you'll see a metal strip. It contacts the pin on the toner cartridge and supplies the high voltage it needs to operate. You can either bend out the contact or remove the white piece containing the pin and bang it out a little bit.
