Hi, I have a hp 5550dtn and I use it to print mainly A3 Tshirt transfer paper set on "extra heavy". Recently, the prints have been coming out with a grubby, yellowy greyish pencil-shading kind of effect all over the whole page, not just the printed area. This happens with A3 and A4. It's quite light, but on designs with a lot of white on, for example, an image with words below, it's pretty noticable. This is happening with the t shirt transfer paper and also on plain white paper (set on plain). I've been scouring google trying to find a reason but to no avail. I recently changed all the toner cartridges but for the week following the change over, all was well. I've taken out all the cartridges and had a clean inside the printer with a lint-free cloth but there wasn't really anything obvious inside and I don't know what to clean anyway! The transfer belt looked OK so is it the fuser? can it be easily fixed? I'm new and not so technically minded but any help appreciated.
