Thanks

I changed the toner cartridge already. This was after changing new toner cartridge.

Where did you get the new toner cartridge from? Is it HP OEM or a 3rd party/remanufactured cartridge?

 

I ask because it really looks like a defective toner cartridge, especially if your previous cartridge printed OK except for the ghosting (double printing). Even though it's new, I've seen non-OEM cartridges cause this. If  you put your old cartridge back in and it prints dark OK but ghosts some print, then you need to replace the cartridge again. Contact the folks where you got your new cartridge and ask for a replacement/refund due to the cartridge being defective.

 

The other possibility could be the transfer roller has gone bad and needs to be replaced, but not if the old cartridge prints OK still, except for the ghosting.

I cleaned the transfer roller. It is from third party from ink123.com. My client ordered it.  I requested for new toner cartridge. They are sending it. Whats the good tool to clean the transfer roller? does water do the job?

Do not use water. The best way to clean a transfer roller depends on whether is is a sponge roller or hard rubber. Typically we just use a lint free cloth and rub along the length of the roller to remove excess toner. Is the image bonded properly that is applied? The fusing unit might be getting weak.

You can get a new transfer roller for less than $10. Just Google RM1-0658.
