Perhaps you might consider checking the manual that comes with the CD? Seems that perhaps your toner heads need some cleaning

Got backup?

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.

The ink smudges on the paper.

The "fuser" is the part of the laser-printer that melts the dry toner-ink onto the paper.
If the fuser is not getting hot enough, or is not working at all, then the toner-ink will smudge.

Take the printer to a qualified technician for servicing.

Ink does not dry up

The printer doesn't use ink.
I'm thinking that your problem is that the toner is rubbing off the paper onto your hand.
You probably have a defective fuser.
In the grand scheme of things, the fuser gets hot and fuses (melts) the toner onto the paper.
Your fuser probably isn't getting hot enough to fuse the toner.
Get the fuser replaced.

HP laserjet 5000gn when i print, output smears ink on 2 sides. not a toner issue cause changed toners already. someone says printer is telling me something and might be a warning of

If by smearing you mean the print is also rubbing off? Then you definately have a fuser unit issue. The fusing unit is the assembly that heats up and "fuses" the toner onto the page. When these start to go bad, usually on one edge or the other the print will smear/double image/wipe off of the effected area. One test you can do to verify a fuser problem is to print a page and then when the page is about half way thru the prcess, shut the printer off. Open the top and remove the toner cartridge, pull out the page and see if the lower part is not smeared. Basically what your checking is to see if the print is ok BEFORE it goes thru the fuser. Based on your description I would suspect your fuser is going bad.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I just installed a new ink cartridge and printed the test page. There are blots of ink on the right edge of the page, (and back) otherwise o.k. Does the printer need cleaning somewhere? Thanks for...

Print another test page or two. Often the toner has gotten onto a roller or something inside and it will clear itself off by running a few more sheets of paper through it. If that doesn't help, remove the toner cartridge and GENTLY use some canned air to remove any lose toner. IF you see alot of toner in the computer, don't blow it out but take a soft dry cloth and wipe it out. If it still continues, the fuser may have defects so it could be coming from that. Good luck, Wendy.

When machine is cold and run first copies of anything the black and red ink looks to be running. What is the problem? It does not do it when the machine is warmed up.

Printers that use "toner" (dry ink) rely on heat from the "fuser" unit to melt the ink into the paper. If the "fuser" is becoming slow to "warm-up", then the toner is not getting properly melted into the paper.

Call your local CANON store, and place a service-call.

Ink not drying

sounds as though your fuser has failed.

Ink doesn't dry

Your fuser is not functioning correctly. You will need to replace it. The toner has to be heated by the fuser to make it bond to the paper. Look at this forum for the part numbers.

Hoping you can help with some advice...

does the noise still happen as you make a copy?
if everything is out :toner/drum, paper tray most likely it is the fuser, does the paper stop at the fuser entrance?
the only thing I can think of that turns during the warming up cycle are the toner, drum, paper lifting mechanism for the tray and fuser
