    Thank you so much for the information!

    I hope this works. I've just tried everything I could think of. I'm not sure what the hot roller is. But, I can clean the fuser.

    Thanks again.

You seem to have a fuser problem. It may be that the thermostat is coated with baked on toner, so that it can't read the correct temperature. In that case it just requires that you strip the fuser and clean it all up. My guess is that you will need to replace the hot roller too.

I can not get my copier to work at all it just leaves a j 3 message. When it was working black lines were being left over every copy page

where the black line being left when after the drum or before the fuser THe hot part. make a copy and stop the machine so the paper is in the middle catch it before it goes into the hot part are the lines there? be careful the toner will not be fuse your hand will smear the toner, if the lines are there you need to replace the cleaning blade and maybe the drum and get the image unit that houses the drum might need to be cleaned.

if no lines then the fuser is putting the lines on the copy replace the upper and lower fuser rollers and cleaning roller next to the lower fuser roller.

We are using a HP Laser Jet 4250 printer. The copies are extremely hot to the touch when they come out of the printer. Is this a sign that there is a problem with the printer?

if the copies are hot there is no problem because the toner and laser technology uses high temperature to bond the toner to the paper ( about 170 to 190 degres Celsius).

My Samsung CLP-300 Laser jet is "burning" the ink when printing mostly dark colors which causes it to bubble and flake off the paper.

What kind of paper are you using? This printer does not work well with glossy paper and will do the things that you have described. Try using ordinary 20 lb copy paper and see if this makes a difference. If you are already using copy paper, then the problem is with the fuser, getting too hot.

Cannot get the magenta ink tank to flow in a Cannon Pixma 4500

Yes, you can take the printing head out  and soak it up in hot water. You can even blow some air on it, this will dislodge even the nastiest dried ink gunk. If even after that the head doesn't work then it's dead - buy a new printer.

MFC-420CN refuses to recognize or use black ink

The print head is clogged.Try powerful cleaning:
Press menu, then start black copy, then four times arrow-up quickly after another.Machine will be in maintenance mode
(all lights will flash).
Press 7-6-4 and OK (or start-black-copy).
When finished press 7-6-3 then start black copy,
printer will do a power purge.
Leave maintenance mode by pressing 9-9.
If this not help better think about new printer, because cost of repairing this one is profitable.

Xerox docucolor 12 copy/print printing all black

If you moved the printer, make sure the conections from the printer to the Fiery are secure. If loose the prints will be black but when copying will be fine.

Machine gets hot

Looks like the fuser is overheating. This means that you will have to remove the fuser and strip it down for cleaning and/or replacemnet of some parts, such as the thermostat, thermistor and hot roller.
