Re: wrinkled paper

Try checking the fuser unit inside the back of the printer. Open the door and pull the paper path tray down. You should see an orange vinyl looking roller. If is has wrinkles it probably needs replacing. I have replaced two on my printers and that corrected the wrinkling problem. You can get them on ebay.

When we print something,the paper comes out and is wrinkled and has some ink on it in places where there is no print. The fuser checks out fine.

Description sounds like the fuser rollers are bad.
To check it out run a 1/2 test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray. Print something. As the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover,(you might have to print a few sheets to catch it just right) take out the toner and look down at the paper. If it is wrinkled, you could have a bad toner cartridge. If it looks good...get the fuser replaced.

My paper is coming out wrinkled when I print?

Please check the following steps:

1.Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam.
2. Turn off the printer. Remove any paper trays. Look for wrinkled or damaged paper.
3. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge.
4. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it.
5. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though.
6. Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays.

**If this works please rate else let me know in case of further help.**

My printer wrinkled the paper when it is out

Try using fresh paper from a new ****. If still wrinkles might be an issue with your fuser. The fuser is the part that heats the toner onto the paper and if the paper contains too much moisture content (from improper storage methods), this can cause wrinkling effect as well.

Try printing with different types of paper and from manual tray to isolate problem. If it occurs all the time, most likely bad paper or bad fuser.

We are suddenly experiencing 2 problems. First,

The fuser needs to be replaced, it is causing your smears and the wrinkling/jamming problem.

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.

Paper jams and wrinkles every time

If you slide open the area in the back of the printer where you remove the paper jam, you can see two plastic tabs (one on the left and one on the right). They should both be free for the paper to pass. Look around to see if there's any other obstruction.

See if the paper will print without the wrinkle with the back piece open. If it does, there's an obstruction in the paper path such as a paper clip or money. Has happened.

If there is no wrinkle coming from the back when it's open, there there problem is the paper moving through that last piece. Look for an obstruction (First Paragraph of this).

Phaser 7700GX Color Printer prints wrinkled pages!

when this occurs the problem is most of the time with the transport roller, fuser / fixing assembly roller.question is the image still toner only and not fused to the paper.
In these areas there is offen a jammed and not removed piece of paper dislodged in the paper path or jammed in the fuser or the transfer rollers teflon coating has perished inspect the areas carefully and remove any found if the unit still is faulty (fanning of paper the fuser would be the first to be replaced are past there usable life) if so then Post a reply
