If you just go ahead a replace the toner cartridge, the 'clean fuser input' message should dissapear There are several reasons for this message related to the toner and the cartridge. Try going ahead and replacing the cartridge and see if that does the trick.

HP LJ 5500dn printer-replaced black toner crtrdg,w/OEM tnr crtrdge, recvd control error mssge 'clean fuser input',which we did according to online HP instructions, & another 'youtube'...


Hi Donna

It sounds like the machine still wants a new black toner, normally this message clean fuser input" clears whent he machine reconises a new Original non refilled cartridge being fitted, so it sounds like you have either a faulty cart or a non gen HP cart fitted like a aftermarket or refill. People often get confused that a cart they are using is OEM when in fact it is a OEM empty that has just been refilled or it isnt HP at all usally marked as "for use in HP" so please ensure we are in fact fitting real toners, if you fitted a HP one you would have to tear open the box it comes in.

If it was call I would unplug it from your pc, power it off then on, remove all your cartridges and ensure they are original HP, I'd remove the fuser and clean the discharge lamp area see HERE.
Id replace any consumable that look suss or was leaking. I test via the control panel ie menu/ information/ print supplies status. Can you get a status page out or does the error stop you?

If it still failed the first thing to do would be to replace black toner cart with another as I think your is faulty. If it is real HP then is a gaurantied item so take it back for replacement.

If a tec was their just 3 days ago it too should be covered, most companies like mine allow recall warranty on repair work on same fault if it occurs within 30 days or original call.

Here your user manual and a pic below of what it wants cleaned but mind you normally a new toner clears the message regardless, please note this error wasnt included in original machine realease it was a firmware update that added it so it may not be listed in early prints of manuals for your machine.

Let me know how you go the more info the better

Cheers

Steve

I have a printer (hp color laserjet 4700dtn) that is showing, on the control display, an error code of 59.30. I have replaced the fuser, however it did not correct the issue


If you are using reman toners, try changing them 1st, remove all 4 and power on. If it asks for the toner, install one at a time and let it ask for the next one. This will also helo isolate the problem toner or fuser.

The 59.3 and 59.4 errors are related to the fuser/delivery motor but were left out of the service manual. A 59.3 error indicates an abnormal fuser motor start. A 59.4 error indicates a fuser motor rotation error.
The fuser is customer replaceable.
Note in the case notes for the CE to verify the customer has power cycled the printer and tried a different fuser before going on site.
Fuser
C8519-69031
Fuser/Delivery Motor
RH7-5288-000CN
Fuser/Delivery Drive * (see Technicians note below)
RG5-5659-000CN*
* Denotes optional parts
TECHNICIANS: The Fuser Delivery Drive assembly will rarely ever need to be replaced for any issue. If a defective Fuser Delivery Drive assembly is suspected call HP Support for further assistance. The procedure to replace it is not in the Service Manual.
Technician troubleshooting instructions - 59.3 and 59.4 errors
The recommended actions are as follows:
Power cycle the printer and verify error is still present.
Reseat the fuser and power cycle the printer to see if error is still present.
Replace the fuser assembly.
Check and reseat the cable connections at the fuser motor.
Replace the fuser motor.

My printer is smudging the left hand side of the printout. How do I clean it?


Check and verify smudging not caused by toner cartridge by removing toner from printer and checking the blue roller. DO NOT TOUCH the roller as oil from fingers may cause image defects. If toner good suspect fuser causing smudging on your printouts. Note fuser not considered a customer replaceable part for this model.

Vertical dark/smudged line on right side of paper when printing


See its a very common issue.the right side of the drum has moisture on it.remove the toner and drum and apply a hot air blower on it for some time also clean the printer internally.reinsert the toner and drum.
check by printing few pages the smudging on the right should go within 10 to 12 pages.
if the smudging doesnot go away then its time to replace the drum to solve the issue.

This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya.

On a T642 prints out first three sheets just fine but on 4th it never makes it to the fuser. The paper curels inbetween the fusers and toner. 201.32 error


The error 201 means exactly what you are getting;
a paper jam between the printer input and exit sensors.

It is common on these printers for toner to build up on the fuser input guide and eventually gets so big as to catch on the leading edge of the paper,

you will need to scrape the encrusted toner off of the guide.

If the device has done a large volume of printing (say over 100k) it may be a faulty fuser assembly.

Printed page not clean, faded characters in background of page. Any suggestions? I cleaned the pickup roller.


Hi,

Have you tried another toner cartridge? And when you say it has faded characters in the background? Does it look like it's reprinting the image kind of? If so, you will need the fuser unit replaced. The fuser is responsible for melting the toner to the paper, when it goes bad it can cause "ghosting" meaning it reprints previous images. A technician would be needed at this point, the part number for the fuser is RM1-1289.

Please let me know if there is anything else you need.

Roller marks on paper


Hi, Sounds like your problem is not the rollers. If its marked on the pages, its not the pickup rollers nor the Exit rollers that leave marks.

Either 1 you have a bad Toner Cartridge. or 2 Fuser sleeve is bad and needs to be replaced.

(1) If the toner cartridge is refurbished that is your first indication that you should replace with a HP Manufactured Toner. Refurbished toners always go bad. In fact many of them do not even last the amount they are said to last.

(2) If its not the toner cartridge, then the only other thing that is fusing roller marks is the fuser. In order to do this. You will have to remove the back panel. Unscrew the fuser.*note fuser can be extremely hot after use. be careful.* From this point you should be able to look at the Fuser sleeve and see a worn out sleeve on the side which your roller marks are at. You will either need to replace it if it looks bad. Or you can clean it when its got with a piece of paper or an alcohol pad to remove excess toner clocked on the fuser.


That toner is whats showing up as roller marks on your prints.


I hope this helps. PLEASE RATE Porfavor :)

Three broken horizontal lines across all printed pages


sounds like a bad (defective) toner cartridge. You can also try cleaning the corona wire again.
