Fuser - Fixing film sleeve

I have a HP Laserjet 3330 MFP and just found out the "Fuser-Fixing film sleeve is broken. I checked the Precision Roller site and they do carry this part @USD35.00, because I am not a technician, so I wonder if I could get if done by DIY. I called HP service department few days ago for service of my printer, but the HP staff told me there is a fee of CAD50.00 to identify the problem and would be waived if I choose to fix my printer. But my concern is, I could not get the CAD50.00 back if they quote me CAD300 to fix it. Rgds, Edwin

Re: Fuser - Fixing film sleeve

Replacing the fixing film is a complicated process. Replacing the entire fuser assembly is much simpler, though more costly. I suggest you try finding a refurbished one on Ebay, and have a technitian install it for you. The total cost should still be well under 300.

I have HP Laserjet M1005 printer. I have a paper jam problem at exit and bottam paper fold at fuser. pls solv my problem. thanx

Check for any obstructions inside the fuser, could be something stuck or could be the fuser film has worn out. If so you can replace just the film or the entire fuser. Should sort your problem out

Clear a paper jam on 3330

When you say "release it from around the roller", do you mean that the page looks like it is wrapped around the roller? If so then the fuser will possibly need replaced. Depending on how skilled you are you could try removing the fuser and disassembling it to remove the paper but it may not be possible. if you decide to try be careful not to tear the "roller". It is actually a fixing film, a thin mylar type product with a nonstick surface. It is easy to damage it and then you would have to replace the fuser for sure.

HP3330....machine is adding a wide black streak about 3 inches wide down the center of printed pages. Is this something I can fix ?

Check the fuser for the problem, look at rear of printer and open access door to fuser, look at gray plastic film if film broken replace fuser, if film has black mark replace fuser. Note replacing fuser NOT considered a user replaceable item.

I have a problem with the roller just before the paper is printed out. Sometimes flakey pieces of the roller are chipped off and sent out along with the paper. Do you know how to fix this or where to...

doesn't sound like a roller ... it's probably the fuser film sleeve. google for a sleeve .... or a (refurbished) fuser unit. if you've never replaced a film, that is the better choice.
