Question about Printers & Copiers
Roller is misaligned somewhere or gear is broken. It will repeat every several inches depending on the diameter of the roller and the section that broke. A small section break that repeats every three inches indicates gear malfunction on a roller whose circumference is approximately three inches.

Although it fit the broken fuser, it does not mean it's ok.
1-they must have the same number of teeth ( diif. gears have diff. amounts of teeth)
2-it must be the same diameter ( so they can mesh together, otherwise it's touching the tip of hte teeth and may be skipping.
But I'm not sure the double image is coming from there, it would jam the paper because the timing is off.
Anyway you need to eliminate the obvious then see what happens, I think you said you had another tonertry putting that in, if it doesn't work then change the gear for the correct one.

SOURCE: prints roller smear marks
Laser printers do not use Ink. The problem is most likely a defect on the drum, which in this model printer, is part of the toner cartridge. Replace the black toner cartridge with a known good one and test.

SOURCE: Perforations on paper
Hi. I have a Canon MP520 printer, and that also puts dotted lines down the entire length of the glossy 6 by 4 paper. The lines are spaced about 30mm apart, and are very hard to see, being more visible in the areas of dark ink. I believe this to be caused by rollers that feed the paper through, marking the new still-wet ink just after it's been deposited on the paper. I am not sure of a solution, it seems to do it on Canon paper, which is thicker, and cheaper photo paper. If you're not happy, take it back and buy somethng else, I don't think you will find a solution.

SOURCE: hp 4100 paper is jammed
I gather the paper has got into the fuser and cannot get into the output bin. Few things...
1. Clean output rollers. Are rollers moving?
2. Check gears on the fuser unit. Any broken or worn gears?
3. Check default paper size setting in printer, paper size setting on tray, paper size setting in printer driver and document page.
4. Leave the back door open. Does the printer still jams? If it does, see it could be paper pick up problem. Use different trays or the manual feed. Also the fuser unit could be the problem.
5. All else fails, replace the output assembly.
