Re: paper jams at fusion stage
Probably there is some piece of paper stuck in FU, best way to check FU is take it out from printer, first remove backside and left side cover, in backside there is a 4 small wires with 2 pin connectors you have to unplug connector, in left side there is a bigger withe and black wires, you have to unplug connectors. then open cover and remove *PC drum, also remove transferbelt, first remove 2 screws, 1 screw at each side, then unplug connector upper right and lift and remove transfer belt. BE VERY CEARFUL WHEN OPERATING WITH TRANSFERBELT. DO NOT DAMAGE THE BELT.
then you cand remove 2 screws at each side of fusing unit, when moving the whole FU to right /maybe left, dont remember/ you can bull out the fusing unit. its a little tricky to take it out. when you got the FU in your hands, you can inspect it, remove any paper, stuck. AGAIN, BE VERY CEARFUL, DO NOT DAMAGE THE RED ROLLER AND DO NOT USE ANY SHARP THINGS. when needed you can also remove a few screws at the fusing unit and then you can take the fu a part to see whats wrong.
I keep getting paper jammed at the fuser every single attemp to print. It's difficult to remove and the paper often tears when trying to pull it out.
This is most annoying since the printer is just outside of warranty and i just bought a new black toner cartridge. They don't make this printer anymore and I'm afraid the cost to repair would most likely exceed $200.

Hi! There is a lot of things that can happen near the fusion stage.
1- the paper is curled due to damp and hits the fusion block.
2- the fusing unit is lacking traction due to damaged gears at the rear end
3- the paper hits a broken scraper (in a set of 3,4,5, or 6), being this the most comun cause
4- The pressure betwin the pressure roller and the fuser roller is weak
5- the paper sensor is broken or damaged, being this one a comun cause too
Now, if the paper goes trough, must be the sensor failure
If the paper gets curled or crumpled BEFORE fusion, then a scraper (or more) is broken
I could be here forever giving other tips, but this are the main ones
I hope it was helpful.
Sorry my english...

My husband took the top cover off the printer and took a good look inside with a flashlight. He found a hot pink crayon stuck where the paper feeds through. I guess I should have had a better look initially, since the paper never made it all the way through the printer. Works like a charm now!!
