Question about HP LaserJet 6L Printer
Quite absentmindedly, I ran a bunch of clasp envelopes through my 6L recently. Now whenever I print there's a section where no toner adheres to the paper right down the center of almost everything I print. I obviously wrecked something inside this printer (fuser?) and I'm wondering if it's repairable. I live in northern NJ and I suspect between repair and shipping costs, this is probably a lost cause...but anybody think this is possible or worthwhile to repair?
The metal on those envelopes would compromise the coating on the hot roll of the fuser. i do not live in NJ but i repair all kinds of laser printers. you might want to consider just purchasing a good used laser or a refurbed one it would most likely be cheaper in the long run. paying to have it repaired would probably be more expensive than buying one. a fuser would run 65.00 to 135.00 or so. i know for one i sell them cheaper

With the low cost of printers that are better than the 6L I would not waste the money to repair

nicked, or otherwise damaged.

compatible with the heat and pressure of the
machine during operation.
• Use only well-constructed envelopes with sharp and
well creased folds.
• Do not use stamped envelopes.
• Do not use envelopes with clasps, snaps, windows,
coated lining, self-adhesive seals, or other synthetic
• Do not use damaged or poorly made envelopes.
• Be sure the seam at both ends of the envelope
extends all the way to the corner of the envelope.
Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or with
more than one flap that folds over to seal must use
adhesives compatible with the machine's fusing
temperature for 0.1 second. Check your machine's
specification to view the fusing temperature, see
page 82. The extra flaps and strips might cause
wrinkling, creasing, or jams, and may even damage
• For the best print quality, position margins no closer
than 15 mm from the edges of the envelope.
