HP Laserjet 5L - White streak

Hi

Not sure if this got posted before, but I am getting a white streak down the page. According to HP manual says the mirror is contaminated and needs to be cleaned or replaced by HP technician. I would like to do it myself and am wondering about the difficulty level, the parts and any other information that you have. Thanks in advance. Geri

Got both the posts and the email. Hope my reply helped you. For those techs and others who read my replies for the knowledge contained within, I suggested that something had fallen into the toner cartridge blocking the laser light or toner distribution. The only mirror is in the scanner assembly itself and it's doubtful anything got up in there.

For the lurkers on the forum: in this case doubtful won. A piece of lint somehow got up inside the case of the scanner assembly!
