    My , say, secondary printer, a HP Laserjet 5v prints "unsharp".
    The prints are not garbled, but look bleached and dissolve on the rims.
    Large Areas are spotted and fade partially to white.
    The toner is new, heater and all operates.
    I am suspicious about the actual laser-module, but can't imagine in which it
    might be defective. I swapped the main PCB of the printer with the one from
    my main Laserjet 5v and it showed to be operational.

    As I do not neccessarily need the second printer but would like to gift it
    my niece when I manage to get it back to work I would appreciate even evil
    hacks as hint.

    Check and make sure all the mirrors are clean, toner buildup will cause bad
    print. But you may have HV problems.
