Question about Xerox WorkCentre Pro 412 All-In-One Laser Printer
This post is loaded. First of all, there should be 4 screws holding in the fuser. Unless you are talking about removing the 2 screws that hold the pressure and heat roller together in the fuser. 4 screws hold the fuser in the machine, 2 screws hold the fuser together. I am not sure exactly if your fuser was mounted to the machine with only 2 screws, or if that is an accurate post and you removed the 2 screws that hold the fuser frame together. Either way, I seriously doubt the noise is coming from the fuser itself.
Now, the darker section down the middle. I would suggest taking the fuser back out of the machine and looking at the black heat roller in the fuser. If it is not clean and shiney, and has a rough texture to it in the middle, that roller is bad and will require replacing the fuser.
What I am curious about is, the rest of the copy. Is the copy fine outside of the middle? If so then the fuser should fix it. Note if there is some reprint, sort of ghost print in the middle of the page.
The rattle may be the gear on the back of the drum cartridge, It is a small gear that drives the cleaning roller. Pull out the drum and look on the back, there are 2 small gears on the back . One of them may have broken a tooth and is jumping and not rotating properly.
Another problem, as I read this may be the toner cartridge not having the ink distributed properly, To eliminate the toner cartridge as the problem. Remove the toner and look at the roller on the front of the cartridge.It shoud have ink distributed evenly across that roller, No streaking, it should be a dull black fuzzy apperance across the roller.
Firstr check the middle of the fuser roller for the wear I described. Then the back of the drum for the noise, then the toner carteidge for distribution.
If its not fixed yet, let me know. We can discuss the laser and scanner issues. But those are far less likely.
