Plastic metal shavings inside printer

My HP 1020 starting imprinting a line down the right side of paper and making a crackling noise when it prints. At times, it crumbles the paper. Upon cleaning we found shavings--like a metalic film--inside the printer.

I had a similar problem on an hp-3052. I was getting pieces of plastic that were grey and yellow stuck to my pages and all inside the printer then papaer stared jamming. The problem was the fuser sleve which can be picked up on ebay fairly cheap. The bigger problem is installing the sleve over the fuser. I tried the repair my self and broke the fuser assembly. It's a cheap part but a pro should do the install this is definately not a diy fix.

Carttridge is slamming against side of printer, light is flashing, no printing, no paper jam


I suspect the problem for both of you is either the blockage of the position sensing path (a slot in the carriage) or the plastic band that is imprinted with many vertical stripes and lets the printer know where it is and needs to go is not where it belongs.
Open the printer as you would to change cartridges and look carefully with a flashlight inside for a thin ~ 6mm (~1/4") plastic strip and insure that it is clean and stretched between both ends. One end is normally anchored to the chassis, the other attached to a spring suspension.

Hp laser jet 1020 has refuse to print


try to see if the printer will print anything by opening and closing the top door that leads into the toner seven times just open and close, if the printer prints a paper with lines then the printer is working now if the printer doesnt then try to take out the ink, paper and unplug the power cord and let the printer set for about three minutes..
If the printer does prints now it up to the printer spooler itself make sure thier isnt any jobs stuck in the spooler, if there is delete them and also reset the printer spooler, if that doesnt clear them out reset the computer, this will help it, finally when you have that done, do a test page by going into the printer and faxes and right clicking the laserjet 1020 going into properties, and in the general tap click on the test page this should print out a test page. if it does then your printer is up and running.

Printer making funny noise and print is almost peeling off the page on the right side


Your problem is with the fixing film in the fuser assembly (HP Part #RM1-3044). The brown material you see is the plastic film ripping and peeling off of the hheating element.
