Laserjet 4250 print quality issue (see image)
ANSWER : It looks like a fuser problem. One way to prove it is with the half-stop test. Put a sheet in the drop down manual feed tray. Send a print job and watch the paper. When the end of it is about to enter the printer, open the lid and take out the toner cartridge. Look at the printed image. If it looks OK, then it is a fuser problem. If not, then it is a toner cartridge issue since it hasn’t gone through the fuser.

The lip is what stops the roller from turning until the solenoid pulls the plate down. The slots go on the 2 poles sticking up on the solenoid with the lip pointed up. Then you hook the spring on the 2 metal tabs one on the solenoid body and the other between the 2 slots at the back of the plate.
