HP LaserJet 1300 crumples paper on top left corner
Almost every page (not all but most) that comes out of my HP LaserJet 1300 printer is crumpled on the top left corner. The pattern of crimping is almost identical on every sheet. It has worked perfectly for a couple of years and nothing has been done to it and, suddenly, this starts.

ok, in this case you need do:
1) check the roller before the fuser and after it some roller old not enough firction and pressure balance
2) check the fuser press roller it could not has good tough to fuser surface, it should be no gap at all and good pressure balance on the fuser surface
3) check the fuser cleaner which maybe too dirty, or change new one if you have the parts.
4) fuser unit maybe too old if printing pagers over its life cycle
hope this help you and please ask me any time.
The fuser is shot....this is the unit that uses heat and pressure to fuse the toner to the page. It is primarily when the pressure roller wears that you get crinkling and bad fusing, but I'm sure the upper sleeve has seen better days as well. These days it is (sadly) cheaper to replace this printer with a new little HP -only around $100 or so.
When you open the paper tray assembly you will see that on each side there is a silver bracket on each end of the paper tray that the paper sit under. You can bend these away from the paper in a sidways just a little and that will fix your problem. The paper is hanging on these plates as it feeds and is bending the paper as it feeds.
