Paper jam near fuser - OKI C5100n
okay, I have this problem I think. It is jamming on the OUTPUT side of the fuser, and I have replaced the fuser with a new one.
I learned tonight, through trying various things, that it will not jam with the printer lid open. (you can make it "print" with the lid open if you push the lid switch in so that the printer thinks it is closed. That made me wonder if it had anything to do with the led strips (black bars attached to the lid) so just for fun I unplugged the C led strip so that it wouldn't produce any light onto the drum. With the lid closed and the C disconnected, the printer will not jam. (but you get no blue on the page of course!) when I re-connect the C led strip, it jams on the output side of the fuser every time. It is very consistent.
I don't understand how putting blue toner on a paper can make it curl so much that it jams up in the fuser, but it does.
I'm sure there is something else gong on here that I don't fully understand- hopefully someone who knows more than I do can use this info to help us all out a little.
I'm going to go and fiddle with the drums now. I don't have an extra one right now, but I'll see if I can narrow it down further.
