Good old fuser wrap, what a pain. What type of paper are you printing on. Often with full page coverage printing I find that you need to user a heavier bond color printing paper to achieve any sort of good quality and reliability in feeding.

I have a total of 10 HP Color LaserJet 4650 printers, and 7 of them have the following problem: they jam at the fuser whenever a full-color picture, photo, or slide is sent to print (especially ones with...


This jamming has to do with third-party toner cartridges being used. I had this problem using Xerox toner cartridges and found that I would have no jamming if I used at least 2 hp-brand toner cartridges and the rest Xerox. I then used a different brand of 3rd party toner cartridges that would not jam as long as just the black cartridge was a genuine HP black toner cartridge. This issue has been confirmed even by the manufacturers of the generic toner cartridges. Hope that helps!

Dell 3100cn (color printer): color smudging


Smuding typically occurs when you print on a heavier paper without changing the settings. By changing the settings to a thick paper type, the page will be send through the printer more slowly. this will likely eliminate the smudging.

Dell printers are junk. But you have put a lot of money into this thing. Check the alignment of the black drum, could be that something is keeping if off track a little bit.

Sounds like the fuser. Try heavier paper settings (you have to change them in all 3: driver, printer itself and program you are printing from). If that doesn't work replace the fuser.

The print toner cartridge has a small trap door that opens to let the toner adhere to the paper. Remove the toner cartridge and locate this moveable panel on it. This roller is VERY sensitive, and can scratch VERY easy. Use a soft LINT FREE cloth to GENTLY wipe the colored roller if you see any toner build up. If that does not clear up the problem you will need to replace your Fuser Unit which will need to be ordered from Dell or a 3rd party supplier. Its a pretty easy process, and instructions usually come with the fusers. If you have a printer warranty they will fix it for you. Thanks! //CowboysfanZ

I'd suggest it is a sensor issue. Since the error comes up, the printer stops responding - even if everything is okay.
