How do you clean a printer that always prints pages with smudges??

I have the HP LaserJet 1200. Every page that prints now has black smudges all over it. I assumed that after it printed a certain number of pages whatever was causing it would go away (i.e., if some ink accidentally got on the roller it would dry over time). However, it's now been about 2 weeks and I've printed tons of pages and it's still smudging.

Any clues on how I could fix this?? I really don't want to bring it to a repair shop, so an "at home" fix would be greatly appreciated.

Any ideas?

HP Laser Cleaning Kit

Maybe you could get one for your model.

I've tried looking for one, but they don't seem to make it for the 1200.

Any other ideas?
