If you can open the printer and detach paper assembly a while then put it back firmly,then also the fuser assembly..see to it that no other particles or foreign materials inside the printer and all were aligned.
Typically, what causes wrinkled paper is the fuser assembly in the top rear of the printer. This is not a user replaceable part. I would first check to see if there is anything obstucting the paper path like a torn peice of paper or paperclip etc. You can take it to a printer repair shop to get the fuser replaced for around 100-150 dollars.
2 reasons: 1. Was there a paper jam prior to this problem? It could be that the paper was pulled out and a small bit of it is stuck on the pins that guide the paper from the heat roller. If no torn jammed paper prior to this issue, then check out 2.
2. the heater/roller is damaged and needs to be replaced. I would suggest you take it to your nearest HP dealer to properly diagnose this for you.This would save you unnecessary cost in trying to pull it apart and causing more damage to it.
Look through the paper path thouroghly. This is usually caused by a peice of papper either blocking a sensor or physicaly jamming the paper path. is it not trying to feed or lamming up and wrinkling the paper?
HP makes great laser printers, the commercial LaserJets typically last 8+ years without much more than an occasional maintenance kit to keep them going. The 1000 series printers are quite another story, they are designed for the low end printer market and just can?t take hard usage over time. The typical culprits with paper wrinkling are heat from the fuser or paper problems.
-In the paper tab of the printer driver make sure the correct media is selected. This controls how hot the fuser gets which also causes paper curl/wrinkling.
-Buy some fresh HP grade paper, improper humidity, coatings and storage can also cause problems.
-Try a new HP cartridge.
If you still have no success starts a print job and turn off the printer while the paper is feeding. What you want to do is try to freeze the wrinkling process so we can identify what area is causing it. Post this information.
Also open the rear, straight through door; also let us know what happens.
