    About 4.5 years, can't tell when wrinkle begins, but noise seems to be coming from fuser unit.

Ok, in this case you need do:
1) check the roller before the fuser and after it some roller old not enough firction and pressure balance
2) check the fuser press roller it could not has good tough to fuser surface, it should be no gap at all and good pressure balance on the fuser surface
3) check the fuser cleaner which maybe too dirty, or change new one if you have the parts.
4) fuser unit maybe too old if printing pagers over its life cycle
hope this help you and please ask me any time.

Xerox 7760 Wrong paper size error when trying to print to A4


First your computer selects the printer to output to, so make sure your default printer is selected.
Next, within your printer you may have selected a different page size for output as a default.
The printer it self should allow you to load and auto detect paper size. If this feature is not enabled see if it is a choice.
Also whatever you are trying to print check page setup in the program you are using make sure to ensure they match.

WHENEVER I PRINT I GET A GREY BACKGROUND IT LOOKS LIKE DUSTY PAPER BUT IT ISNT? WHY IS THIS?


If the black toner cartridge (Q6000A) is not original, problem with the doctor blade, bad calibrated.

Use Original cartridges?

See This:

The amount of background toner shading becomes unacceptable.

1.The media might not meet HP specifications.
  • Use a different paper with a lighter basis weight.
2. Use a different paper with a lighter basis weight.
  • Check the MFP environment.
3.One or more print cartridges might below. If non-HP print cartridges are used, no messages appear on the control panel or in the HP ToolboxFX.
  • Replace any low print cartridges.

When I print, the paper gets jammed at the same place. I have cleaned the rollers, but it still gets jammed.


You can try using the next heavier weight of paper, or the next lighter weight. Not uncommon for laser printers to start jamming when humidity changes.

5300 won't load 8 1/2x 11 photo-weight paper.


''grabber'' roller out of work sometimes, you may try
1) there is a input paper sensor around roller, the roller out of runing if the sensor is not senitive enough or sensor switch dirty,
clean the sensor as you can find it,
2) Lighter-weight paper feeds and prints fine, which means this paper input sensor works ok, but you need to make sure they are same paper input sensor,.
3) the paper surface bright and the roller worn could be cause paper feed fail, you need clean the roller anyway. still not fixed, you need to adjust the roller pressure by increase the spring force.`

CLJ8550n poor print quality and wrinkled paper


this is usually not caused by the paper tray. this problem is usually caused by the fuser assembly. check your paper path. dead cycle the printer, shut the printer down before the paper enters the fusing area, check for wrinkles. remove all paper, print again, check the output, wrinkles, replace the fuser.

Photosmart C6300 pictures are printing very wet and grainy. printer is also very loud - almost as though the parts were scraping and banging.


Sounds like you have the wrong paper setting in your print properties. I would use photo or high bright 24lb paper and set the paper type in your printer properties prior to executing the print job.

Heavy weight paper


Hi it would appear that the paper is too heavy for the machine check the manual as it will have the spec on what paper can be used and also how heavy the paper could be.

Sorry I cannot be anymore help but try using a paper that is about 10-20 gsm lighter.

Thanks J

Paper jams


Fan your paper.

Fan:
Meaning take the paper in your hand and wave it around or page thru the papers, This puts air between the paper to prevent jams.

Make sure you do not over due the paper in the tray. Try lighter paper weight.
