Most likely this is caused by a bad fuser, which can be replaced. Depending on the printer model it might be more economical just to buy a new printer..

Paper printing with creases


Simple, get it replaced as it is obviously faulty and the "engineers" can't fix it. Go back to your supplier and if you paid by card, claim your money back, if they won't help, as it is faulty.

Crease in page when printing cannon image runner 1310


A crease is usually caused by two issues. 1 ) paper is hitting something on the way to the fuser causing a skew. This type of problem would be repeatable every page as well as causing the image to be off centre. The 2) reason is the more likely cause. A bearing on the lower (pressure roller) is beginning to seize. Causing paper not to feed straight through the fuser. This cause a wrinkle from from to back on the sheet of paper. This wrinkle although repeatable generally the wrinkle position up or down on the sheet. This gives the impression of something that is getting in the way of the sheet. If you can change your lower pressure bearings you should be ok again.

Paper comes out creased on one side


If the printed image is smudged, as well as creased, you might have a torn Fuser fixing film.
You will need a technician to fix that.
If it is just a crease, just check that
1. Your paper is not damp. Try a fresh packet of paper
2. The paper input tray guides are set to the width of the apaer, to prevent the paper skewing as it feeds.

Good luck.

I am getting a crease on top-half, right hand side, when I print.


Your paper is probably getting caught on the roller or rollers need to be replaced. By having a certified technician do a maintenance cleaning this should resolve this issue.

Paper is crumpled, toner is not adhering in certain areas


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.

Printer is creating a crease and smudge down center of page.


There sounds like there is somthing in the path of the printhead. Using a flash light, remove back cover of machine and look for a small piece of paper,etc. Be careful not to jam anything in to th machine. It may take running a thick piece of paper through manually with your hands to remove the object.

Paper Creasing


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
