Hey Mike,

It is normal for these rollers to become dirty. Be very careful not to scratch it, you will have to replace the whole fusing unit and not only the roller and the whole unit it's not cheap at all.

Reset your Toners and Imaging units for Bizhub and CF series.

Hi this is irfan i have canon ir 3300 last 2 day it show this error code repeat when i clear the error code the comes back that error code. i replaced fuser fixing film and pressure roller Please help

Re: E000 Canon IR3300
The fixing film unit is faulty. The main thermistor has an open circuit. The fixing heater has an open circuit. The main power supply PCB is faulty. The DC controller PCB is faulty.
Caution To reset the error, execute the following in service mode: COPIER>FUNCTION>CLEAR>ERR

Secondly Irfan, keep in mind, if you changed out the fixing film inside the fuser unit, then more than likely you did not reassemble the fuser unit while making sure the sensors were "EXACTLY" the required depth from the fixing unit.

When those sensors are even SLIGHTLY off, it will code out because they cannot read the temperature correctly when they are too close or too far away.

And when I say they have a very STRICT tolerance, I mean you actually need to get a depth gauge and check to ensure they are perfect.

I'm a copier technician, and quite honestly I rarely do a rebuild on Canon fuser units because they are so strict on these sensors.

I can also recommend a GREAT company that does nothing but rebuilds for fuser units. And they specialize in Canon models!

I'm not sure if they deal with the general public, or just dealers, but you can certainly call them and find out. They are called "Fusion Image Technology - Their website is - Hope that helps.

Printer leaving black smudges and streaks

Could be bad cartridge leaking. Drum is in the cartridge and if the drum wiper is not doing a clean wipe toner will drop onto paper. Take out cartridge and over a sheet of white paper tap the cartridge with you hand, if toner drops you have a leaking cartridge. Also could be fuser area, they get dirty and leave lines or the teflon coating wears through and leaves a line, depending how old this unit is.

Canon photocopier ir3570 paper is jamming in the fuser unit what could be a problem please help ray

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...

"Dirty" could be one of 3 things... Transfer belt, Imaging unit and fuser unit. Make 5 copies in jam the machine by opening a cover. remove pages and see where the "dirt" originates from.

Using my unit (owned about 6 years - great service so far) it suddenly quit ... no wind down or 'prelude' like whine - growl - etc. -- it just quit running ... suggestions? clear filters?...

I agree with you having great service because mine only lasted two years. It sounds like the motor just worn out. If you don't smell any burnt electrical then replace the bushing for the motor. Good Luck

Copy with dirty paper

This machine sounds like it needs a service. Is the paper dirty before it reaches the fuser unit? You can check this by opening the door while the machine is printing (if you're quick), if the dirt is on the copy before it is fused to the paper then the origin of the dirt is in the process area - clean the area particularly check the cleaning assembly and clean the transport bed (the assembly that pulls out with a green handle been turned to the left). If it is after fusing then your fuser roller and/or cleaning web (roller) is worn and/or dirty. Some techs wind back the cleaning web to buy more time - good luck

Sounds like a fusing error ... If your able to wipe the toner off the page its a fuser unit problem (replace fuser unit) If toner is sticking to paper but the print quality is poor , replace the drum unit  (PCU)  good luck
