Yes I would say you may need the belt is replaced due to stretch and needs to be replaced. You could also have allot of dirt built up from the print drum leaking

SOURCE: paper jam

There is a sensor in the back that lets the printer know the paper has exited the fuser. It is probably broken off if paper is getting stuck back there.

Also check for paper remnants that are jammed. This may require removal of the fuser.

Make sure the stopper in the paper tray is snug against the paper. sounds like the paper is not properly in place and the tires are making the noise.
Could be it's trying to lift the tray and it can't, determine why; something stuck, out of place,

SOURCE: I have a paper jam in the fuser/paper exit area

If you can't get to it, and do not want to further disassemble the unit, it would be best to turn it over to a qualified service person

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

WHO DO I CLEAN PRINT HEAD OKI MB451W


The MB451W uses electrostatic toner and does not have print heads. Follow the cleaning instructions beginning on page 172 of your User's Manual. If you don't have it handy, you can download it from the OKI website. (The link is for the English language manual.) http://my.okidata.com/mandown.nsf/196efed9e03ff0d1852576ee00476710/3854f93fb3d0181185257a7f004eddcb/$FILE/MB461_MB471_MB471w_MB491_ES4161%20MFP_ES4191%20MFP_MPS4200mb_Basic_UM_E.pdf.pdf

Note: on page 174, the manual recommends "soft tissue paper" for wiping off the LED array lens. Lens-cleaning paper or cloth for plastic lenses should work and is less likely to leave lint behind.

If you are getting random black blobs on the back of your printout after cleaning the printer as recommended, the fuser is dirty. If the fuser cleaning strip is accessible (a felt strip that wipes off the fuser roller during operation), gently scrape it clean with a knife blade held perpendicular to the strip, then clean the debris out of the printer. (CAUTION: the printer must be off long enough to be cold before working on the fuser!) If you can't get into the fuser, use the following procedure: Get matte-finish paper of the thickest stock your printer will handle. Put several sheets of this paper in the paper tray. At the computer, type a single space on a blank document, with no headers or footers, then print the blank page (trying to print with nothing at all usually doesn't work). This should pick up some of the trash. If you still have problems, open a graphics program and draw a solid black rectangle all the way across the page ("portrait mode") and about 4" high. Place a copy of this rectangle 2" below the first one. Insert a page break, and put a white object (anything white or transparent, with a white boundary) on the second page. Print double-sided. The black rectangles will pick up dirt from the fuser roller and the heat will make it stick to the paper toner. Repeat if necessary, then remove any unused cleaning paper from the tray.

I have a Richo 2035 black and white copier. Recently the copier has begun to paper jam...and its done frequent every time i clear the jam..it runs for a while maybe 10 copies and jams again. What can i do?


Not surprising - it may need some service. It is 7-8 years old. There are a few areas that could be affecting output. Most likely you need to replace the rollers that pick the paper out of the tray (3/drawer) -especially if the problem occurs with 1 specific tray. Try using another tray to isolate the problem

Ghosting


Normally ghosting is caused by a bad fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1)
Print something. As the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the cover..
Look at the paper. If there is no ghosting, the fuser is bad. If there is ghosting, could be a cartridge drum.
Follow these steps print a Print quality troubleshooting page to identify which print cartridge is causing the issue.
  1. Open Toolbox .
  2. Click the Help folder, and then click the Troubleshooting page.
  3. Click Print , to print the page. The page prints five bands of color, which are divided into four overlapping sections. By examining each section, you can isolate the problem to a particular print cartridge. Figure 4: Print quality troubleshooting page bandsc01417618.gif 1 - Yellow 2 - Cyan 3 - Black 4 - Magenta

Hp laserjet 2600 ghosting


You are most likely correct. this is called fuser offsetting, to check it out, stop the paper being printed MID CYCLE open the front door just when you think the paper is behind it..., pull the paper off the transfer belt. Is the ghost there? Probably not, and if it isnt, then it is your fuser. I can lead you to a reputable supplier. You can buy QUALITY rebuilt fusers with great warranties at prices well less than new OEM.

CLJ8550n poor print quality and wrinkled paper


this is usually not caused by the paper tray. this problem is usually caused by the fuser assembly. check your paper path. dead cycle the printer, shut the printer down before the paper enters the fusing area, check for wrinkles. remove all paper, print again, check the output, wrinkles, replace the fuser.

Paperjams


Sounds like the pick up rollers are worn or dirty.
You can try to clean them with alcohol.
When you pull the tray out the rollers
should be towards the front of the printer.
