Piece of plastic film when printing

I have a LJ 1012 that crinkles the paper on right side a bit, and I have one time seen a small piece of plastic film. Is that part of the fuser?

    a section of the film on mine is gone, paper jams and it won't print where the film is gone, called HP ordered the part, got the wrong part, perhaps I don't know what to ask for, like Larry I ask the same question, Is the upper roller with the gray film around which fits against the orange roller is the Fuser?

HP 1012 paper coming out creased. ?something stuck to drum or roller


If it is a clicking sound it's most likely a gear that is bad. Haven't worked on this model, but typically it is one of the gears that works in tandem with the fuser that goes bad. These can be purchased on hp's site. Remove the fuser and inspect all the gears. There usually is a small plastic clip you have to remove to get at the gears. Inspect the teeth on the gears (they should be smooth) If it's not one of the fuser gears it could be one of the gears on the main gear assembly. This is considerably harder to access.

Why would paper be jamming or getting stuck on right side with black ink every time?


The rollers that advance the paper could have been messed up by the key, therefore crinkling paper and not advancing in proper timing with the ink. It also could have busted of the plastic gears in modern day printers.

Problem Description: no attempt to put paper thru printer, if it feeds it jams. Panasonic UB-5315


Hi, usually it is only a matter of removing the paper and turning it around prior to printing- but only at the start of each session. There may be a small piece of paper jammed in the paper throat area. You may be able to just see it if you open the paper draw or the plastic film area. You can access the latter area by sliding the tag downwards on the RHS of the printer. The piece of paper will be right at the bottom. Occasionally there is a full piece rolled up in the shoot that you can see above the film. You may have to remove the film rolls to access this. Make sure you look at which roll goes where before you remove them.- Ross

Hi,

Bad news, the "golden'" paper is actually a piece of the fuser film of the printer. Out of experience i have found that a new fuser film costs almost as much a a new printer.

Found this link that may be usefull in making a decision whether to replace the fuser or buy a new Printer :)

My HP laserjet 1012 smears the ink and wrinkles the paper on one side of the paper. What may be causing this problem?


Probalbly the upper fuser roller has some of the film torn off. Look close with a flashlight through the back of the machine.

Had this for less than a year and now as it prints it sometimes jams and when it does work the printed image is crooked. Seems to be picking up the paper unevenly.


There is probably a crinkled piece of paper stuck in the paper path somewhere causing an alignment issue. Open all the access panels you can and check everywhere for a small piece of paper. Check really good as this issue can be caused by a VERY small piece all folded up.

Printing only bottom half of picture.


I had the exact same issue with mine! I didn't manage to fix it, but I know exactly what the issue is. If you open the printer, you'll find a black rectangular box above where the film fits inside the printer. This black box is connected to the board above it, and is supposed to press down against the film, and then against the paper for it to print properly. There is a little bar above the rectangular box, and there should be two plastic pieces on both ends of this bar. The bar is also connected to the gears, and when the gears move the bar, the two plastic pieces coming off of the bar push the black box down. When I looked at mine, only one of the plastic pieces was doing its job; the other one was broken, and was sliding on the bar. Tried some super glue, wouldn't work. I suggest tossing it out like I did, unless it's still under warranty or you want to try fixing the plastic piece so the printer head gets pressed down all the way.

Only on Quicken to 3210 all-in-one printer. Paper starts to feed then indicates paper jam, wait long enough and paper feeds with crinkle and no print.


I would check the paper path on the printer where it is crinkling the paper. More than likely there is some small piece of paper or something that is causing it. Does it only do this out of quicken? I wouldn't think so if the paper comes out damaged....
