Question about HP LaserJet 6p Printer
I printed documents wraped itself aroun the back roller.
How can I take it out?
Thanks for your help.
I have had this painful experience numerous times with this printer. For preventative measures, my recent experience indicates that this seems to happen when you are printing numerous pages without much of a break between. For example, printing a single 20 page document may cause the 12th page to wrap or jam at the output. Or, printing 20 one page documents may do the same thing. I think it has to do with the fusing roller getting too hot and causing the toner to stick to it, bringing the paper along for the roller ride.
Another similar problem is that the paper gets folded "accordion" style. To prevent that, I now run this printer almost exclusively with the straight through paper path, rather than have it exit on top.
The first time I tried your solution (x-acto knife), I cut black sleeve and had to buy a new $200+ exit unit. So below, finally is my solution. Just please keep in mind that I can't be responsible for any damage if you don't have the same positive results that I have had (I've done this a few times).
You can remove the entire exiting assembly, which includes the fuser. You need to remove the entire outside casing, as I recall, so locate every screw you can find and remove them. As I recall, there are two screws holding the fuser assembly to the printer chassis, but there may be four, I just don't recall for sure. Either way, remove those screws, then the assembly should be able to slide out.
Once you have the assembly out, you should see a couple of springs holding the two rollers together. Remove those springs, then the rollers, and then you should be able to unroll the paper from the roller.
You'll need to to all of the reverse, obviously, to reassemble the printer. After you do this once, you'll know why I now take preventative measures. This is a very time consuming process, but defintely safter than using a x-acto knife.
If you have this occur a second time, you might want to determine if you are printing a lot of pages without giving the printer a cool down time. If so, try printing just a few pages, giving it a break, then going back.

I tried to take the printer apart without sucess.
With an exacta knife a cut the rolled up paper and painfully, bit by bit I pulled it out.
Surly there is a better way to do it.
