  • Prints from my LaserJet 5L come out with a smudge line and 30mm of print either side which isn't a full page of print. Is this caused by a low toner cartridge? Regards, Pete.

    LaserJet 5L toner replacement

    Your HP LaserJet 5L printer should indicate when your toner is running low or needs to be replaced. If this error has occurred without any error messages on the printer then it's possible that this could be caused by another component such as the fuser or transfer roller. Therefore, we advise you to check the toner level in your HP LaserJet 5L cartridge. Alternatively, you can contact HP for technical support and they should be able to offer you assistance with any error messages so you can replace the correct parts within your printer.

  • Hello, I've received the HP 5L LaserJet printer second hand as a gift and it didn't come with a power cord, so I've no idea if it works still. I also have never owned this model of printer before and don't know if it accepts cartridges . Is there a reputable merchant to get this looked at before I spend money on it?

    HP LaserJet 5L cartridges and parts

    We only supply a compatible HP 06A black toner cartridge for the LaserJet 5L printer which is a non-genuine toner replacement cartridge that we guarantee to work in this printer. Unfortunately, we don't supply spare parts for printers such as power cables so you'll need to contact HP directly for help in sourcing a supplier of this item.

HP LaserJet 5L Printer Review

Expert review of the HP LaserJet 5L printer

Our Verdict:

The HP LaserJet 5L mono laser printer is one of the earliest models from the LaserJet 5 series. It is sturdily built and conveniently designed, measuring only 11.8x17.4x16 inches. The HP 5L laser printer is suitable for high-volume print work, capable of handling up to 35,000 impressions per month. The HP 5L LaserJet is a dedicated monochrome laser printer, but its low standard paper capacity and slow print speeds are major issues that may slow down productivity in a busy office.


The HP LaserJet 5L is just the right size for a single-function laser printer, though there are smaller units offering the same functions that may appeal to other users. It comes with 2 standard paper trays with a combined capacity of 350 sheets. Additional paper trays may be purchased to address the low input capacity issue, increasing the total paper capacity to 850 sheets. The LaserJet 5L printer is equipped with a 4 MB internal memory, which can be upgraded to a maximum of 66 MB.


High resolution printing is guaranteed with the HP LaserJet 5L black and white laser printer as it features a powerful 600 dpi print engine. Texts are well defined and sharp, though many users feel that tones can be darker. Since it is built for heavy duty use, the Hewlett Packard LaserJet 5L printer is a good addition to offices and its sleek design is perfect even for small offices. Although high capacirty cartridges aren't available for this model, the printer can use a compatible black HP LaserJet 5L toner cartridge for cheaper running costs.


In addition to occasional light tones, there is also visible banding when printing graphics with the HP LaserJet 5L laser printer. Its sluggish print rate is also an annoyance, averaging only 4 ppm.
