Hp HP Color LaserJet 2840

HP Color LaserJet 2840 printing on one side only

I purchased an HP Color LaserJet 2840 printer a little over a year ago. Early this week, without warning, the printer began printing on the right side of the page only. I spoke with one repair outfit who informed me that this is a common problem with this printer. Has anyone experienced this? They also told me that I may want to consider purchasing a different printer rather than spend the money to repair this one.
Either the carousel has a timing problem, or a bad bushing.

Search for the 2500 and/or 2550 printers with this problem, they use the same basic print engine.

Buying a machine that does not use a rotating toner cartridge system sounds like a good idea to me.

The carousel needs to be realigned.It has to be removed, re aligned and then installed back. You might have to take it to a shop.
