WHAT IS THE THUMPING NOISE WHEN PRINTING?


Two possibilities I can provide:

1. The fuser pressure roller is out of round and the noise is the flat spot hitting the hot roller on every rotation.


2. These printers have an envelope mode that activates a solenoid in the fuser when printing envelopes to force air out of an envelope.


If it makes the noise constantly then it is the fuser. If only as the page is exiting then it is the envelope mode.

On anything other than plain printer paper, the ink tends to rub off the printed page - really a problem with labels and envelopes. I have tried changing the printer settings for these items, but it does...


You may need a shop to increase the fuser temperature. You also may just need a new fuser. In printing preferences you need to make sure you're telling the printer you're using envelopes or labels. When the toner rubs off, the fuser is just not hot enough.

Use this item to configures the fuser mode associated
with each media type.
Change the fuser mode only if you are experiencing
problems printing on certain types of media. After you
select a type of paper, you can select a fuser mode
that is available for that type. The available selections
might include some or all of the following modes:
NORMAL: Used for most types of paper.
HIGH 1: Used for rough paper.
LOW: Used for transparencies.
HIGH 2: Used for paper that has a special or rough
finish.
The default fuser mode is NORMAL for all print media
types except transparencies (LOW), and rough paper
(HIGH 1).
CAUTION
Do not change the fuser mode for transparencies.
Failure to use the LOW setting while printing
transparencies can result in permanent damage to
the printer and fuser. Always select Transparencies
as the Type in the printer driver and set the tray type
at the printer control panel to TRANSPARENCY.
When selected, RESTORE MODES resets the fuser mode
for each media type back to its default setting.
Hope this helps

Envelopes can be printed from tray 1 or 2. Select the type of envelope you are using from the PRINT dialog box or the driver. In your program, set the margins. Typical margins for a commercial #10 or DL envelope would be: Return Address Top margin 15mm(0.6 Inch) Left margin 15mm(0.6 Inch), Delivery Address Top margin 51mm(2 Inches) Left margin 89mm(3.5 Inches). For the best print quality, position margins no closer than 15mm (0.6 Inch) from the edges of the envelope. Avoid printing on the seams of the envelope. Envelopes with a peel-off adhesive strip or more than one flap that folds over to seal must use adhesives that are compatible with the heat and pressure of the printer fuser. the extra flaps and seals can cause wrinkling, creasing and feed jams, could even damage the fuser.

Envelopes get wrinkled while printing


The problem is likely the envelopes.
OK, I'll explain what is happening first.
If you think about it this way: The envelope has air in it, not alot but some, as it moves into the fuser "the heater" the air heats up and expands. If the envelope does not have enough "leaks" for the hot air to escape it creates a bubble in the envelope that gets squashed as it moves thru the fuser giving you the wrinkles.
Does that make sense?
Most envelopes (if you have ever looked closlely at them) have small openings in the corners that let the air escape.
Sometimes the opening are to small or not there at all.
Yes the heat can also seal the envelope. Usually not if you are using laser specific envelopes.

Now that was a long winded way of saying try new envelopes made for laser printers.
Hope this helps

Envelopes


Make sure the paper type for the tray from which you print envelope is set to Envelope. If the printer doesn't know that an envelope is being printed, it will not turn on the "Envelope Enhance" feature. The Envelope Enhance feature pumps air out of the envelope before it enters the fuser and can prevent creasing in the envelope. However, keep in mind that any envelopes larger than a US Size 10 will most likely crinkle, with or without the Envelope Enhance

Envelope Printing


There is a way I believe to release the tension on the fuser for envelopes.
Check the control panel on this printer, and if you are using the Manual Paper Tray, set the settings to envelope.

The fuser will ease up the tension in the fuser, and pass the envelope through at a different speed (I think speeds it up)
So that you do not have that problem.

Is it humid where you live?

Ink is wiping off my postcards I printed


Is it just with your envelopes? or all your pages that you print?
Usually, when a Laser printer "Smears" it means that the FUSER is bad.

If you do a websearch for "LJ1300 fuser" You should be able to find them for sale. or, check your local Office Supply Store.

Sometimes envelopes are TOO THICK for the fuser to handle at the speed that the printer sends them through, and the toner doesn't have enough time to bond to the envelope. There may be an envelope setting with your printers software, or, you might want to look at the back of the printer.
The door will open. Looking for blue or green or orange or yellow tabs with arrows on them, or paddlock icons. Maybe even an envelope icon. Sometimes you have relieve the fuser tension for envelopes.
If you still have your HP Documentation, check that.
HP has pretty good support on their site.
Q1334A Is the TRUE Model Number of your printer,
Its on the back of your printer.

I hope this helps you.

PRINT RUBS OFF


When printing envelopes ensure you set paper/media type to Envelopes, and feed via tray 1/bypass . Paper type setting sets correct fuser temp, the fuser is the hot bit at the rear that "melts" the image into the paper.

If paper type is set correctly then I recommend you change the fuser unit.

Ensure envelopes are standard type. ie you are printing on paper envelopes
