Hp HP LaserJet 5SI

hp 5si text shifting

I have an hp5si that when printing it randomly shifts the text off center. Sometimes a few centimeters left, then sometimes to the right..Never consitant. Also it's very streaky.and I have already replaced the toner, transfer roller, and fuser..did not fix. Help
We have gone over this many times, but my assumption is the left to right shift is when the paper is held in portait mode. If so about the only thing which will effect it both ways would be the registration assembly below the toner cartridge. As to the streaking, the only thing which will effect that besides the units you replaced would be the laser/scanner assembly and only if the streaks are white and appear in the same position accross the paper.

Let's not forget that it could have been a remanufactured toner cartridge. Can't trust most of them. Of course, without seeing the print, it's hard to tell.
