Why does the paper come out yellow, burned looking?

I have a HP Printer Color Laserjet CP3505. After printing, the full sheet of printed side of the paper is yellow-ish and appears to have been scorched. But it doesn't smell like that. We have replaced the cartridges. It used to only do this when we printed 20 or more copies at a time, but now it does it regularly.

Make sure your firmware is up to date,

Go to the Software and Drivers Download page at and install the latest available firmware for the printer.

Next, ensure that the toner collection unit isn’t full

Finally, print a cleaning page from the control panel of the Printer, normally you would select the following from the menu:

Device Maintenance
