Re: Pieces of plastic seem to be being shaved off of...
Well for sure you will need to take the cover off the printer to be able to see the whole printer just resting on the bottom part of the cover. Before you do that though. Power it off and open the lid and pull the print carriage to the middle of the printer so you can take off and inspect the ink cartridges. Take the left one off and check the contacts where they print on the inkcartridge itself and where it sets in the carriage and be sure it is clean. If you do not find anything obvious there. Take the whole top cover off to expose the printer assembly. Something has come loose if you are losing pieces of plastic and the only way to see it is to be able to see the whole thing operate with the cover off. Usually a visual inspection will reveal the problem. The top cover is usually clipped on or only has a few screws but it will come off. Be sure power is off before you disassemble. Just do not force the cover off without removing the retainers or screws first. I know the problem will be obvious once you can see it. Let me know if you have any other question about this problem.

How small? If it's very fine metal shavings then it may be normal. If it's chunks of metal prepare yourself for bigger, and more costly, problems.
Note: Changing the fluid did not cause these problems unless the wrong fluid was used.
Back door wont close...just had this problem....
Look at the back of the printer and you will see a rod with two black pieces on it...it looks like the fins on the door will mesh with these pieces and close....but these are the problem.
Gently pull on the rod and flip the black pieces down so the square tab on them is up and back. This meant pushing the black piece FRONT down on my printer.
This spun the piece to the correct position. Repeat on the second black plastic piece on the rod and the door will close!
How they got turned on the first place is a mystery to me! But this fixed my door closing problem!
There is something wrong with the document feeder. Check if there are no pieces of paper stuck somewhere, and that any sensors are not stuck (sensors are usually small plastic pieces, that are lifted up when a sheet of paper moves below it).
I had a similar problem on an hp-3052. I was getting pieces of plastic that were grey and yellow stuck to my pages and all inside the printer then papaer stared jamming. The problem was the fuser sleve which can be picked up on ebay fairly cheap. The bigger problem is installing the sleve over the fuser. I tried the repair my self and broke the fuser assembly. It's a cheap part but a pro should do the install this is definately not a diy fix.
I did the same thing. Order parts at thegourmetdepotco.com -- This problem is caused when you put the rubber gasket underneath the blade instead of above it. This causes two problems: 1. It lifts the teeth on the jar away from the teeth on the drive gear, which can grind down and break off the teeth, and 2. If the drive gear contacts the rubber gasket, it will melt the rim of the drive gear. In the future, to reassemble the jar after cleaning, first put the rubber gasket on the jar, then the blade, lastly screw on the base ring.
The blue plastic piece is the clip that holds it all together. Facing the front of the printer. Open the top cover of the ADF. Flip the assembly with the green and blue plastic to the left. Hold the the squarish looking plastic frame in your hand so that you can see the black gears, with those to the back of the printer and the shiny silver shaft with the roller on it to the right. Now locate the notch on the piece you flipped back that has the blue plastic clips sticking into it. The silver shaft snaps in there. It does not feel right, but if it does not fall out when you close the adf door, you've got it. If there are other pieces loose, perhaps I can get you a few pictures from the one we have in the shop right now.
A E002-000 is fixing unit error code. It is a power problem with the fixing unit. When you removed the paper jam did you see any piece of a blackish grey plastic pieces. If so you need to replace the fusing unit and or the upper fixing film..
Hi there you will have to remove the top cover and you will be able to see where it goes as the roller in question is the paper eject roller. there are usually four screws under the top cover and also at the rear of the machine. The picture where the roller is resting on the top of the printer the roller is situated right under that also that white bushing holds the roller in at one end usually the left as you look at the machine from the front.
