Question about Lexmark E320 Laser Printer
When I print the copies are coming out with smugging on several part of the page. Does the fuser need replacement? If so, is it worth replacing? How difficult is it to replace?
There are several things you want to check before you go replacing the fuser that usually just burns out and when it does all the panel lights flash at the same time. The problem you are describing is more likely excessive toner build-up check when the printer is off to see if there is a ridge of toner caked up where the paper enters the fuser assembly if so this can be scraped off carefully so as not to damage the fuser itself. Clean the transfer roller also or lastly clean the laser printhead itself it is able to be reached after removing the toner cartridge and using a DRY soft cloth to wipe back and forth along the fingerwide slit inside on the top of the printer. Also a defective/empty toner cartfidge could be to blame.
