HP 2600n crackling noise at top feed - paper creased

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.

    I think you might have nailed it. In the fuser area, I can see a whitish roller. Instead of being centered, it is getting ground up on one side.

    I could not find a diagram for 2600n on Printer Works (though they seem to have everything else). Let me know if you see it.

    Thanks for your help!

    I have the same problem with my 16 months old printer after only 3500 pages.
    Dissassembled the printer according to the instructions an found the same problem. The fuser sleeve is shifted to the right side of the printer and came loose there. Also the rubber roller at this side has some crinkles now.
    Strange for a printer that could print 35000 pages a month according to the specs I' ve seen. With this kind of volume you should probably change the fuser every 3 days......

    Possibly the same issue here ... except that the printer is only 3 months old. There is a "crackling" noise -- but specifically from the paper as it flows out of the printer. The paper is creased from the middle of the page down both the left and right sides. The ink does not smear off the page -- but is distorted along the creases.

    When changing paper to a different size I find one sheet has been partially fed into the first set of rollers. Is there any way to manually eject he sheet?

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.

    www.laserpros.com/pdf/HP 2600-2605 fuser-etb.pdf Here are detaied instructions at leserpros.com You should be able to order just the worn sleave, but an exchange fuser is a much easier fix.

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

HP 1012 paper coming out creased. ?something stuck to drum or roller


If it is a clicking sound it's most likely a gear that is bad. Haven't worked on this model, but typically it is one of the gears that works in tandem with the fuser that goes bad. These can be purchased on hp's site. Remove the fuser and inspect all the gears. There usually is a small plastic clip you have to remove to get at the gears. Inspect the teeth on the gears (they should be smooth) If it's not one of the fuser gears it could be one of the gears on the main gear assembly. This is considerably harder to access.

My HP laser printer 1300 had a paper jam


When printing or copying, paper will not pick up or feed into the HP LaserJet 1000, 1200 or 1300 series product causing paper jams or wrinkled output. Symptoms are as follows:
  • The pickup roller will spin and try to pick paper.
  • The paper will partially feed into the product accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise then jamming.
  • The paper may feed all the way through the paper path accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise. The output will be skewed and wrinkled.
SOLUTION: Reposition the black Mylar light shields back into the proper position.
  1. Unplug the power cord from the product.
  2. Remove the paper and paper input tray.
  3. Slide hands, palms side up, into the paper input tray cavity (see Figure 1) until the fingertips reach the end of the cavity. Figure 1: Paper input tray cavityc00068598.jpg
  4. Bend fingers up to push the black Mylar light shields back into place. The proper position of the black Mylar light shield will be flat.
  5. Reconnect the power cord.
  6. Print a self-test/configuration page to verify product is functioning correctly.

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.

Paper won't feed through


So why did you log this in the HP product pages? Try cleaning the rollers with a contact cleaner or alcohol based cleaner

My hp deskjet all-in-one f4180 worked just fine until one day the paper started feeding in crooked every time Thanks in advance


Sounds like an old paper jam, were there is still a "small piece of paper in the takeup rollers. Check with a torch, just to make sure takeup is clear.

Print en enveolppe with hp color laser jet 2600n


Envelopes can be printed from tray 1 or 2. Select the type of envelope you are using from the PRINT dialog box or the driver. In your program, set the margins. Typical margins for a commercial #10 or DL envelope would be: Return Address Top margin 15mm(0.6 Inch) Left margin 15mm(0.6 Inch), Delivery Address Top margin 51mm(2 Inches) Left margin 89mm(3.5 Inches). For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15mm (0.6 Inch) from the edges of the envelope. Avoid printing on the seams of the envelope. Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives that are compatible with the heat and pressure of the printer fuser. the extra flaps and seals can cause wrinkling, creasing and feed jams, could even damage the fuser.

Magenta covers entire page


I had a similar problem. See: http://www.fixya.com/PostQuestionTx.aspx?prdid=378544&ctgid=0&thid=1044936&type=2
Are you your replacement cartridge orignial HP?
I also had your problem on my previous HP printer (don't remember the model #). And I had it cleaned a couple of times, replaced the magenta cartridge (but with remanufactured), and could not get rid of the magenta. I gave up and bought a new 2600n, but now I wonder if I had used original HP parts if the problem would have been solved.

Paper Jam at 2


Its probably not picking up paper from that tray, thus the jam error. For me that is typically because the tray isn?t pushing the paper up high enough to be caught by the pickup roller or the pickup rubber band is worn.
