Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
My 2600n has worked fine for a couple of years. Recently it has started to make a crunchy/crackling noise at the output rolles. My paper also has a 1/4" roller/crease at right after printing (and slight crinkling at left) - yes, it is regular letter size paper. The input feed is fine from manual or tray one. No strange print stock was used - no cartridges changed. I would like to know how to open the top to look at the output rollers if nothing else. Thanks.
If you are good at mathematics, maybe you' ll see its better to buy a new, exactly the same printer. Take the price of four new cartridges and add the price of a new fuser. Now see if this price is lower than the price of a completely new printer with new cartridges and a new fuser (and all the other new parts). You' ll be suprised! (At least I was)

Can you wipe the toner off the page or smear it? Most likely the fuser has had the fixing film fail. Thus the crackling noise. You have two solutions, 1. replace the fuser with a ne or rebuilt one or 2. find a fixing film and replace it yourself. Both jobs require removing the fuser which means disassembling the printer. Check Printer Works for a diagram and Google for the best price on a fuser. Hope this helps.

It may have to do with sunlight hitting the fuser - was your printer backed up to a window?
