Errors that do not only occur with an HP printer
If a laser printer goes on strike, the toner in the cartridge could be damp. If you have stored the toner in a cold room, you have to put the replacement cartridge in the vicinity of your printer at an early stage so that it can adjust its temperature and no condensation occurs.
Otherwise you risk short circuits in the printer due to condensation in damp rooms.
The temperature adjustment also applies to replacement drums and ink cartridges.
If you use damp printer paper, a laser printer will produce wavy prints and an inkjet printer will produce blurred documents.
Paper feed problems can also cause static electricity. Therefore, as a precaution, always leaf open the stack of paper before loading it into the printer.
