I have a HP Color LaserJet 3700dn. This morning, without warning, it started making a noise that sounded like crumpling paper. Upon further inspection, I discovered that the Transfer Kit film looked to be crumpling on one edge. There is also a mark on the film, which is causing marks on the printing (yes, the delightful old thing is still printing). Is there a way of trying to smooth out the film on the transfer kit, or is this an issue that will only be fixed by replacing the transfer kit (was only replaced 4 months ago)?

You need to isolated a problem.Verify the vertical conveyance feed and clean the feed rollers,verify the fusing unit and a duplex unit,and verify the exit unit.Stop the copy process before the paper enter in the fusing unit,and verify if the paper is crumpled or not.If is crumpled verify the paper tray rollers(casette feed rollers,vertical transport rollers).If not crumpled stop the proces after a half copy is out on the fusing unit.If crumpled change or clean the upper and lower fuser roller and the lower roller cleaning roller(aluminium roller)in the fusing unit.

Probably, but you?re going to have to try to isolate the problem a little better. Typically this would involve removing side panels and such; however, you may just have a faulty consumable like a toner cartridge, fuser or more likely the transfer kit. I typically try to isolate the sounds location then try replacing some of the consumables in that area one by one. In your case if you can?t isolate the location I would start with the transfer kit since that has a greater chance of making noise.
