I'm not sure what you mean by "not printing on paper, the image area is shifting". What are you printing on?

Have you tried uninstalling the device drivers and reinstalling them? This may clear any software quirks caused by conflicting devices or user settings.

SOURCE: Fuser Error

I truly believe that you did not take the fuser out. It is not a simple process and is not readily accessible.
You most likely took out the toner cartridge, which works with the fuser.
The fuser is what "fuses" the toner to the paper so the documents print as expected. There are fuser kits that can be purchased, and they usually come with some decent instructions.


in case of new printer
A fuser problem is serious but if it is is a new printer, use the warranty now. Don't play with it as more than likely you can't recover and you *MAY VOID* the warranty in any attempts, so use the warranty. You should have returned it immediately once the problem cropped-up to be within the quicker satisfaction settlement period, you may now have to deal with a warranty center if not the vendor themselves for repair, but start the process. Plus, document this as well, cal,s letters, etc. to best serve yourself if any other problems arise.

To explain what the fuser is, one must explain what the fuser does.

A laser printer works by assembling the page in its memory, then transfers that "image" by scanning a drum. The drum then picks up a charge which will attract the toner. By varying the laser you can induce specific dots, creating an image on the drum. The drum is rotated through the toner, the charge then attracts the oppositely charged toner particles (the uncharged sections don't have anything) The drum, now dark with toner, is touched to the paper, which has an opposite charge, thus transfer all the toner over to the paper. Then the paper is sent THROUGH the fuser, which basically MELTS the toner onto the paper permanently.

If the fuser is too hot, that means the temp control unit for the printer fuser has FAILED, and that is NOT something you can fix by yourself. The labor will likely cost more than the printer unless it's under warranty.

You took out the toner cartridge, which is NOT the fuser. Toner cartridge is just the toner and the drum together in one unit. The fuser is where it warns "high temp! do not touch!"

Just buy another printer or use the backup printer. Again, this is NOT something you can fix by yourself.

My HP Laserjet 1012 is printing at a slight right upward angle. any ideas? is there an alignment procedure i can perform?


Yes , this is an alignment problem

This sounds as the the paper is not being guided properly by the guide roller or transfer guides. May need cleaning or replacement is needed. \

Driver required for HP laserjet 1018 with Applemac OS 10.4.10


Unfortunately, the 1018 is not supported in the mac environment.
Unless you are familiar with changing the source codes from linux to MAC I wouldn't attempt it.

The other option would be to set the printer up on a different machine as default and using a program like NETWORK MAGIC,
network the computers together and share the printer, Use the trial version first to see if it works.

Power off the printer. Unplug the printer's USB cable for 5 seconds replug turn on the printer. If that fails power off the PC and printer unplug the USB cable at the PC and printer replug and power back on the PC. After PC is fully booted turn the printer back on. If this keeps reoccurring please replace the USB cable and or try different USB ports.

Eratic printing of colour pages


probably needs an alignment test as well as a colour check.

Failing that try using a new ink cartridge.

Hope this helps
