Try running this test to see if the black areas are being put on in the fusing process or by components prior to the fuser.

Print one page and time how many seconds it takes from the time that you hear the main drive motor start up until you first see the paper starting to exit the printer. Then print another page and turn the printer power off when the paper is approximately half way through the printer.

(If if took 30 seconds for page one, then kill the power 15 seconds after the motor starts for page 2)

Then open the printer and remove the paper. If the black areas are visible on the portion of the paper that has NOT yet passed through the fuser, then your problem is either in the toner cartridge or being put of the paper by dirty rollers which feed the paper to the cartridge. Use a soft dry cloth to clean any spilled toner off the rollers and off of the drum inside the cartridge. If this fails to fix the problem, replace the cartridge.

If the black ares are ONLY visible on the portion of the paper that has passed through the fuser, then clean or replace the fuser.

Fuser error


Your machine is in need of a new fuser unit. HP LaserJet 2400 Maintenance Kit Installation - Fuser (Part 1 of 2) Installing the fuser. Turn the power off and unplug the printer. Wait 20 minutes for the printer to cool.
Open the back door of the printer, using enough force that the door opens completely and the hinge locks disengage, as shown below.

2400_openbackdoor.jpg Remove the 2 screws circled in red below.

2400_removebackscrews.jpg Close the back door, and then flip the printer so that it rests on its face. 2400_closebackdoor.jpg 2400_flipprinter.jpg

Next swing open the paper guard which shields the back of Tray 2 when it is installed.

2400_openpaperguard.jpg

Looking inside the Tray 2 cavity, use a flatblade screwdriver to release the two tabs--one on each side of the rear cover.
2400_pryleft_backgate.jpg 2400_pryright_backgate.jpg

Next remove the rear cover from the printer by pulling down and away.

2400_remove_rearcover.jpg

Fuser Installation Continued . . .
Pry the grey DIMM cover loose and remove it.

2400_removedimmcover.jpg

Use a small flatblade screwdriver to disengage the tab on the connector shown below and unplug the connector.

2400_unplugleftconnector.jpg

Next (on the right hand side) remove the small black plastic cover, located near the green fuser gear, which hides the other fuser wires.
2400_removewirecover1.jpg 2400_removewirecover2.jpg

Then unplug the two connectors shown below and free the yellow/white wire from its guide clasp.

2400_unplugrightconnectors.jpg

Now remove the four screws holding the fuser in place (shown below).

2400_removefuserscrews.jpg

Now remove the black plastic piece shown below, the duplexer inlet guide. Gently pry the tabs on both ends loose and slide/rotate the guide back towards the fuser to release it.
2400_removeduplexguide2.jpg 2400_removeduplexguide3.jpg

Now you can remove the fuser, just pull it straight out towards you. Don't install the new fuser until you've replaced the main motor gear, as shown below.

Replacing Fuser Drive Gear

With the fuser removed, look into the printer and locate the main fuser drive gear on the left side of the fuser cavity (gear circled in red below).

2400_geartoberemoved.jpg

Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the gear's release tab and remove the gear by sliding it off its metal bar.

2400_gearreleasetab.jpg 2400_removegear.jpg

Slide the new gear onto the metal bar--make sure the gear's release tab faces outwards so it will be accessible again--and lock the gear firmly in place.

Now repeat the fuser removal process backwards as you install the New Fuser:

Insert the new fuser and replace the four fuser screws. Replace the black plastic duplexer inlet guide, making sure both tabs click in place. Re-plug the single connector on the left side, and the two connectors on the right side. Replace the wire cover on the right side. Reinstall the DIMM cover. Finally, replace the back cover with its screws.



This is a difficult installation which should be done by a technician. Good luck with it !

Pages sticking to fuserwhen leading ege has wide


Replace the fuser, its overheating and that would cause the pages to stick the way they have been when trying to print pages of lots of black solid ink.

Copy commences and then jam on the right side of machine after the paper receives the toner and prior to hot area. Does not appear to go though this second set of rollers.


This means there is a problem in the fuser unit area.
Remedy
Check the fuser unit gear if its broken. Replace if out.
Check if the separator pawls are out of position. Adjust to its position.
Check if the fuser separator spring is out. Return it to its place.

Paper Jam E2 error


On this model, the fuser assembley is mounted to the machine mounts, two of them inboard and outboard.
If the fuser gear is not cracked, this fuser is driven by the white small drive gear on the machine.
This rests close the drive gear. Sometimes you can hear a thumping noise which is coming from the gear skipping over the fuser gear.
This gear needs to be replaced a very involved service process.
Call Xerox for further repair if this is the case. Also behind this gear are many other gears that can cause this same problem. Very involved and time-extensive to repair even for a trained Xerox technition.

Black marks on pages


Can you stop the copy before the page gets to the fuser section? If you can and the doubling image is there you need to replace the drum cleaning blade and possible the drum as well. If the marks are there after the fuser section the problem is in the fuser. You will have to replace the Upper fixing roller. Good Luck... You may have a hard time finding the parts, this model is old and not a very popular copier..

Black lines on the right side of every copy


depending on what the lines look like it could be the charge roller or transfer roller.
A defect on the charge roll appears as black areas on the front of the test page, and as light gray areas on the test page.
A defect on the PC drum of the toner cartridge appears as white areas on a dark, full–coverage test print and as black areas on the "text only" test page.
I have also seen a line with a 'ridge' on the paper. This will appear almost like an embossed line. This was caused by the fuser roller being scored by debris.

HL-5240 Appears to need new toner but that didn't fix it.


If the marks on the page appear to repeat three or four times down the page regardless of what is printed, it could be the drum unit ( the unit the cartridge fits into) You can test this by taking the cartridge out of the drum and looking at the cylinder in the drum unit. If has light coloured bands, or looks very black, then it is at or past its life cycle ca20-25k pages. If it has clots of toner stuck to it but is otherwise ok, you could carefully clean it with alcohol and a cotton ball to remove the toner clots. Steady and patient is more rewarding than trying to grind the stuff off. If the drum looks reasonably clean, open the flap at the back of the printer and look closely at the fuser. If there are clots of toner stuck to the orange pressure roller or to the grey/tan fuser roller, then the fuser will need to be taken out and cleaned also with alcohol, cotton ball and much patience.
