Alternating dark and light bands

Bands are approx one-tenth inch wide and appear across entire page and affects all colors. It also happens when printing in grey scale. Tried cleaning, alignment, new ink cartridges, different paper, different print qualities. The bands almost appear as one band is in draft printing and the next band is in standard printing.

Perform Print Head Alignment Instructions to perform a Print Head Alignment directly from the machine. If diagrams or ruled lines are misaligned, print head alignment is required. The print head alignment can be performed automatically or manually. If the automatic print head alignment does not work, adjust the print head manually. Automatic Print Head Alignment

My hp laserjet 5p ..The printer prints grey and dark grey line about every 1.5 inches. it looks like it lightly duplicates what it has already printed, with every 1.5 inch pass.


Most common and easiest to check is the toner cartridge. Swap it out and see if it goes away. If not then it is in the fuser unit. The fusing unit is the part that gets hot and is located right before where the paper exits the machine.
If the bands go all the way across the page then the toner cartridge is much more likely.

Blurred bands in prints


Try changing ink cartridge. Print only "grayscale" and if that happens, you need a black cartridge changed. If, not color
