Thats the "Classic" symptoms of a "Fuser". Sounds like he may be right.

Hi i have two hp2015 ans the printer has started to smear the ink on the rollers, would the fuser need replacing or is it the paper type?

The function of Fuser (covered by Teflon sheet) is to heat the paper in order to fuse the toner to the paper. Toner sometimes smears after the print 1. If the fuser is not heating properly, 2. Teflon (Fuser sleeve) is damaged or 3 Paper is thick (Card). If you are using normal paper, then it could be the fuser.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Toner smears and smudges off copy.

The "fuser" unit is not working. It should be heating the ink and the paper, in order to "melt" the ink into the paper, to "fuse" the two components.

Call your local Canon office, and get a Service Call to inspect/replace the fuser unit.

When documents print out, one side of the copy is smeared. We cleared out a paper jam and I think part of the lining of the roller came off.

Smeared output can result when you refeed a printed page into the printer to make a double-sided page. This happens because the rubber rollers that grip the paper to pull it into the printer can pick up toner from the first side’s printing and smear it. So before replacing parts, this is an easy thing to check. Printing multiple pages consecutively will make the pages print progressively cleaner or you can clean the rollers with rubbing alcohol.

Smeared toner also happens because the nonstick coating on the fusing roller is scratched or has baked-on debris. This can happen if the printer is in a dirty environment especially. If you are comfortable removing the fuser, you can try to clean it with a soft cloth and alcohol, but make sure you let it cool down first!

Finally, if this does not resolve your issue then make sure the fuser is heating; toner that is not heated properly will fall from the page and smear. If the thermostat is bad or the fuser not working properly, you will most likely need to replace the entire fuser assembly. This will be pretty expensive to repair so hopefully it's one of those other issues.

Ink is smearing on paper


If the toner (ink) is smearing on the page after it comes out of the printer then the fuser unit is not functioning. The fuser or heat roller is the part of the printer that bonds the toner to the page with high heat and pressure. Te parts you will need to get and replace is RM1-1082 if your printer is the 4250n. We carry them in stock, they run $119 plus shipping. If you are interested in placing an order please contact us at

If the toner smears after the page comes out of the printer you may need a new fuser. The fuser is the heating unit in the printer and can usually be seen from opening the back door. Check and see if it has a line worn down the same side as the mark on your pages.
