I bought an HP CP1518ni LaserJet printer in June. Haven't printed much with it, probably about a hundred sheets.

It has developed a non-printing streak just to the right of center. About 1/8inch in width, usually running most of the length of the page, top to botton. It also seems to crease or deform the sheet of paper in the area of the non-printng streak.

How do I cure this?

Printer is still under warranty. Take advantage of that fact. Your issue sounds llike a hardware problem possibly the paper feed mechanism. The print head nozzles ride very close to the paper in an inkjet. If the paper is wrinkled that may not be happening. At any rate it isn't your problem.

If you insist on troubleshooting then look for foreign matter in the rollers. Perhaps stray paper scraps.

You do have the paper guides set snugly at the sides of the paper?

I checked the paper guides. They were almost snug . . . I was able to make them slightly more snug. I have printed several sheets since then, wrinkle free.

Consider this problem resolved . . . at least for the moment. Can't believe it was something so simple!

Thank you.
