Question about HP LaserJet 5500DN Printer
I have a HP laserjet 5500dn. Someone tried to print on the back side of a preprinted poster and the paper got rolled around the black roller on the fuser kit. We removed the paper. Now when we try to print, the paper stops as it is entering the output tray and we get a ''13.09.00 paper jam'' display message. We can see about 1/2'' of the paper sticking out of the printer. When we pull the paper out, it does have printed text on it. We did notice that a black piece of plastic was broken from the lever that guides the paper into the output tray. I've seen other posts talking about sensor flags, but I don't know where they are located on the printer. Any thoughts?
I was able to fix my problem. On the left side of the fuser assembly there are two small plastic tabs or flags that move up & down. One is attached to the plastic rod/flap that you can see from the top of the fuser and moves when the paper comes out of the "chute". The other tab, which is below the first tab and moves when the paper has passed some point in the fuser, was broken off. I glued the tab back on and now the paper is ejected from the printer like it is suppose to.
I'm thinking that the broken tab was part of a page sensor flag that would tell the printer to stop rolling the fuser assembly when the paper was ejected. Without the flag, the sensor would disengage the fuser prematurely and stop ejecting the paper while the paper was still in the fuser.
