Fusers generally make grinding noises more than cartridges do. If your paper jams are in the fuser area, check the fuser first.

When you open the left side door of the printer, the fuser is installed on a shelf near the top of the cavity. To remove the fuser, grasp the left and right blue fuser release handles and rotate them to the straight up and down (vertical position. Then lift up on the fuser and remove it from the printer.

Take a close look a the at the gear located on the top left corner of the fuser - does it have broken/ bent teet or is it loose on its mounting shaft? If so, that's probably causing both the paper lams and the grinding.

Also look in the printer directly under where this gear would be if the fuser were inserted in the pinter. Do tou see a build-up of fine particles the same color as the fuser gear. If you do that's further proof the the gear is bad.

You can but a replacement fuser at several places - check out www.printerworks.com & you can get one on an exchange basis.

Could be software. I have seen the last several Adobe latest version documents take several seconds to print. I have also seen increased print times with MS office 2003 Powerpoint documents.If it is a single page MS Word or Excel document and u are printing several copies of it, you should turn off the collate feature for printing of that document

To change the 2nd pass roller, you need to remove the PIU(paper input unit).

Get a tech that has done it before. All covers have to be removed. Paper trays removed. It's not something that can be explained in an email.

You need a PIU (paper input unit)...this has catches that lock in the tray. Usually, only one of the trays will not lock shut....but yours is a conicidence. Even if one tray didnt lock in, it is still the PIU.

Check tray 1 there should be an arm hanging down in the center of the tray the arm goes thru a slot in the metal plate. This arm moves when you install paper in tray 1. If the arm is missing or not in the slot the machine will think paper is in tray 1 and try to feed from tray 1. You can try changing the paper size setting for tray one to something other than the size in tray 2.

For example If tray 2 is set for 8.5x11 set tray 1 for legal.
The machine should then pull the correct size based on the print job.
Hope this helps

Check the print processor settings in the advanced tab of the printer properties. This should be set to Winprint, and not anything else.

You can try to clean the printers with some air cleaner , this usually helps to fix the problem. But due the age of your printers you will save money getting a new ones instead of try to fix them.

Can you be more specific in the problem?

Also, please specify "how" you are connecting to the printer (parallel, LAN, etc)

If the machine is still printing normally - don't worry about it. If the cartridge is a refill, or you have re-installed a part used cartridge the printer will have registered a serial code or the chip has not been replaced with a fully compatible one. If the cartridge is an original and still within it's expected life, you may have a developing problem with the printer.
