Question about Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer

1 Answer

My wife tried to print on T-Shirt tranfers meant for ink-jet printers, and they melted onto the fuser roll, and it stinks. I need to remove the fuser assembly and clean it, but could use some instructions. Is there a repair manual or tech support instruction sheet available?

This might help. I did the same thing with my laserjet printer.
Staples has laserjet cleaning sheets. I ran several sheets through the printer after I pulled most of the transfer paper out.
The sheets are one use sheets so, you will need a few.They are impregnated with cleaning fluid on textured paper.
These sheets clean the entire paper travel path.

How to fix error code c3102 konika minolta bhizub c754

Sir/Mam, Something is preventing one of the fuser (Hot Part) roller from turning had this happen at a school teacher melted a transparency in the fuser by using a ink jet printer type transparency on this model copier cost the school 2000 dollars. Anyway hope you did not melt a transparency any way check the fuser the hot part for paper that may have wrapped it self around the orange rollers in the Fuser (The hot part of the copier if so you need a new fuser or have a tech come out and see if he can remove it. IF you use any type of tool you can damage the roller and your copies and prints will have marks all over them. Trying to reset the code prior to verifying the motor can turn allows the possibility of burning the motor out and taking the control board that controls it now your talking 3 to 4 thousand dollars

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Solutions for "engine fuser low

The "fuser" should heat-up to its operating temperature to "melt" the dry toner-ink onto the paper.
If it is not heating up, then each page you print and brush with your fingers will remove the toner.

So, replace the fuser, or get it professionally replaced.

An error jut appeared on my laser-jet 4200 saying 50.1 Fuser Error and asked that the printer be switched off and then on but the error is still there and i cannot print. What could be wrong and how can...

A laser printer works by putting the dry toner ink onto the paper, and then using heat, via the "fuser drum", to melt the ink into the paper, permanently bonding the ink to the paper.

So, a "fuser error" means that the fuser unit is not heating up to its "operating" range of temperatures.

Take the printer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting, and repair.

It might be cheaper to REPLACE the printer, rather than paying the technician to REPAIR the printer.

Difference between electrostatic and inkjet printer

This sounds like a "homework" assignment.

An electrostatic printer puts electrical charges onto a drum.
Then, dry "powder" ink is put onto the drum.
The ink sticks only to the charged points.
A piece of paper is rolled against the drum.
The "fuser" heats the paper, and melts the ink into the paper, permanently "fixing" onto the paper.

An ink-jet printer shoots microscopic drops of wet, heated, ink onto the paper.
The ink dries into the paper.

Hp 4250 laser jet vertical streak ghost image

The problem you are having is caused by the fuser. The fuser is the part in the printer that heats up and basically melts ( fuses) the toner to the page. The fuser has a heat roller that is coated with teflon, your fuser coating has worn off in spots so the toner is sticking to the roller and causing the ghost image. You will need to order a replacement fuser. You can do a search on Google to find a replacement, the parts number is RM1-1082.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Poor print quality

The "ghost" image is "burned" onto the drum.

A laser printer is supposed to charge specific "dots" on the drum, and the toner-ink is supposed to stick only to those "dots", the paper is pressed against the drum, and then the "fuser" uses heat to "melt" the toner-ink onto the paper, to produce the printed page.

You need to replace the drum.

We keep getting the following message - restart printer reseat fuser

The "fuser" uses heat to melt the toner-ink onto the paper, to "fix" the ink to the paper.

Open the printer, remove the cartridge, and make sure that the fuser is _exactly_ "seated" into its socket. Replace the cartridge, and try againn.

Otherwise, take the printer to a qualified technician.

No sorry you can only get the fuser assembly. You should be able to get hold of a refurbished one to keep costs down though.
