It might not be smoke but rather steam. I found a help page at HP.com:

Moisture on Trailing Edge of Paper

Read that document and see if it fits the bill. If you suspect this is really smoke, it means your printer is having a serious issue and you should stop using it immediately. I hope it's just the "steaming" problem. If it's smoke, it's too dangerous to continue using.

Post back and good luck.

HP 6110 Officejet all-in-one will not print from the glass top. It will make prints coming from the computer after I press "enter" from message "paper jam". I also can fax. Please help.


You will need to open the top and look inside where the paper travels through and attempt to free any paper pieces that have gotten stuck in the pathway. You probably have a bad board in your control panel, since you are able to print from the computer.

My prints come out with white (no ink) horizontal lines 1/16" apart from top to bottom


A firmware update for your model addresses print quality issues. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark Pro900 Series Firmware Update.
After successfully updating your printer, do a deep clean function. From the printer touchscreen panel, touch Ink Levels > More Options > Deep Clean Printhead. This will help clean the nozzles from possible clogs and dirt.
Then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.

How do I set OKI B4600 to print to top tray?


On the back tray where the paper comes out just push the extra piece in that helps to catch the paper until it clicks and it will automatically start coming out the top so you pages are in the order that you want them to be.

UNIT VERY HOT WHEN PRINTING, EVEN SINGLE PAGES, AND SMOKE OR STEAM COMING OUT WHERE PRINTED COPIES COME OUT. NO WATER RESIDUE OR SPILLAGE NEAR UNIT AND PAPER NOT DAMP.


Look into changing out the drum that may be defective.
If this unit is that hot that it smokes but it still prints see if there is a cooling fan.
This unit running under the condition you mentioned might start a fire.

Smoke came out of my hp laserjet 4 printer


It could be the the fuser unit over heated and needs to be replaced. If you open the back you should see 2 screws flat at bottom. Remove them and pull fuser unit out. You should be able to tell by looking at it if this is what was smoking.
