The paper will always come out hot as the toner is fused to the page using heat and pressure - like an iron!

The ripples could suggest that there is an obstruction in the fuser unit. Whip it out and check to see if a piece of paper is stuck in it. Let it cool down first for 30 mins or you could burn yourself.

Paper printing hot and curling on kyocera taskalfa 300i.....how do i remedy that problem.


Paper curling is usually caused by one of two things:

1. old damp or moist paper that has too much humidity in it. Easy test for this is to open a brand new ream of paper and try fresh paper.

2. The fuser temperature is too hot for the paper you are printing on. If you can set paper type on your printer, make sure it matches the actual paper, for instance, plain paper, heavy paper.

Paper is coming out extremely hot


check the paper type settings.
Sounds like you are yanking up the fuser for heavy paper/stock card instead of setting it for standard 90g

When printing on my HP 4200 printer, the pages are coming out hot


Simple answer:  It's Ok if the paper is coming out hot out of the printer. The paper passes the fusing assembly just before it leaves the printer and that is normal.  I would be worried it you smelled something burning or saw scorch marks on the page but that would be unlikely since there are temperature controls built into the printer.. There is a way to adjust the temperature of the fusing assembly from the printers control panel depending on the type or thickness of the paper but it'd leave it alone if your only problem is feeling that the paper come out hot.Your user manual would describe the procedure if you wanted to change it..  Also check your printer configuration settings. If you sent a print job on regular 20lb paper and its stated as thick paper type  in the printer settings, the printer might adjust the fuser hotter or slow the printer down some to compensate. Hope this helps

Colour printing


If its a Canon printer try this.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.

Phaser 7700GX Color Printer prints wrinkled pages!


when this occurs the problem is most of the time with the transport roller, fuser / fixing assembly roller.question is the image still toner only and not fused to the paper.
In these areas there is offen a jammed and not removed piece of paper dislodged in the paper path or jammed in the fuser or the transfer rollers teflon coating has perished inspect the areas carefully and remove any found if the unit still is faulty (fanning of paper the fuser would be the first to be replaced are past there usable life) if so then Post a reply
