    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.

HP 4215xi all in one, continues to give the error paper jam, there is no paper jam. I have cleaned all sensors, rollers etc. I have tried a partial and full reset. Any ideas?


Hi,
  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it around so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you. Figure 2: Removing the rear access door

Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door. Click How to Buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  1. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  2. Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
  3. Reinstall the rear access door.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on.

The following information will help prevent paper jams from occurring:
  • Never use paper that is torn or wrinkled.
  • If you are having problems using paper that has already been printed on once (recycling), replace it with new paper.
  • Remove and then reinstall the rear access door. Verify that the access door is fully locked in place. The paper can skew if the rear access door is not locked.
  • Every six months to one year, clean the paper feed rollers with a rag lightly moistened with water. Over time the paper feed rollers accumulate dust and do not function as well as they once did.
  • When printing envelopes, tuck the flap into the envelope and crease the folds before printing.
Goodluck..

Lexmark 4875 finds bad CPU speed


I bought a Lexmark 4875 for mac. It bombs every application when you hit the "print" button. Downloading the fresh driver didn't help, and their support website doesn't address this issue at all.

Copier reset procedure.


hi fixya180,

It seems that the error code 541 (which indicates a problem with the heating unit thermistor in the machine), cannot be reset by the user for safety reasons, ref;
http://savin.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/savin.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=7081&p_created=1102093227&p_sid=9TrLDc-i&p_accessibility=0&p_lva=&p_sp=cF9zcmNoPTEmcF9zb3J0X2J5PWRmbHQmcF9ncmlkc29ydD0mcF9yb3dfY250PTQzNiZwX3Byb2RzPTI1MTAsMjUxNCZwX2NhdHM9MCZwX3B2PTIuMjUxNCZwX2N2PSZwX3NlYXJjaF90eXBlPWFuc3dlcnMuc2VhcmNoX25sJnBfcGFnZT0xJnBfc2VhcmNoX3RleHQ9ZXJyb3IgY29kZQ**&p_li=&p_topview=1

This error requires service support from your local authorized dealer or original point of purchase. You say that you've verified the functionality of your fuser unit; then a authorized Savin printer technician will probably just have to reset the error code of your copier.

Hope you find this info helpful in solving the problem and thanks for using the FixYa service
Kind regards

Epson


It sound like a fuser roller or a developing issue. If you can give me some more info we can narrow it down.

Is the line on all pages or just some of them?
Are the edges of the line crisp and clear or are they jagged?
Does the line look the same on all the prints?
How old is the machine and how many prints are on it (if avail)?

Xerox printing problem


Is it asking for the fuser module to be replaced? The fusers have a fuse or a chip in them that turns them off after a certain number of impressions.
