The key parts of the printer include, toner cartridges, image drum (also known as drum unit or photo-conductor), transfer roller or belt, fuser unit, laser, and mirrors.
Print Head. Print Head is another most essential part of the printer, which has the job of delivering the ink from the printer cartridges on to the surfaces of the paper.
Nozzle plate: the part where ink goes through from ink cartridge to paper. Cover plate: covers the nozzles when they are not in use. Common ink chamber: where ink is transferred from the body before printing. (In piezoelectric printers) piezoelectric substrate: houses the piezoelectric crystal.
Parts include a primary charge roller or corona wire, photoconductor drum, laser, toner, fuser assembly with rollers, and discharge lamp. It is an electrophotographic process that transfers digital information from a computer to images on paper in the laser printing process.
Common features for laser printers include color printing, copying and or sorting capabilities, industrial metal housing, user controls, indicators, application software, and cutters. Laser printers with color printing are capable of color output in addition to monochrome output.
Important printer characteristics include resolution (in dots per inch), speed (in sheets of paper printed per minute), colour (full-colour or black-and-white), and cache memory (which affects the speed at which a file can be printed).
The two types of printer cartridges are ink and toner cartridges. Ink cartridges are used predominantly in inkjet printers whereas toner cartridges are used in laser printers.
Most inkjet printers will use a combination of either two or four cartridges, but more specialized ones like photo printers might require 6 to as many as 12 ink cartridges.
A printer is an external hardware output device that takes the electronic data stored on a computer or other device and generates a hard copy. For example, if you created a report on your computer, you could print several copies to hand out at a staff meeting.

the most relevant questions and answers related to your specific issue

What repair needs to be done for a "50 needs repair" message on an HP Laserjet IIIP?
ANSWER : I don’t know what you mean by good toner cartridges. They haven’t been built in about 10 years, so if they are new OEMs in the box, they are guaranteed to fail. The 50 error on that printer is mostly a burned out fuser lamp. This site was sold, so as you can see, there are no more kits available.

Toner cartridge full, printer displays: "empty needs replacing"
ANSWER : I once went to a customer who had a similar issue. They had installed new cartridges and judging from the box, they looked OEM. Strange thing was they felt empty when lifted and they were missing the chip on the outside that tells the printer it is installed and keeps track of how many copies were printed with that cartridge. The printer has no other way of knowing if the cartridge is full or empty.

smudged parts on printouts
ANSWER : You don’t give enough detail. It’s doubtful the new drums would cause smudging. If it’s just one color, then look at the surface of the drum. It should be visible. If you don’t see it on the drum and it repeats several times on the page, then it would be a worn or dirty surface on the fuser.
