My guess is that the wire from the photocell at the rear of the fuser (exit sensor) is not seated properly. The connector on the board side also has a nasty habit of the pins pushing down into the board in the connector. Put check the connections carefully from the exit sensor to the main boad. If it has pushed down, it can be pulled back up without ill effects using a small pair of hemostats..

Let me know what you find. Hope that helps you.

My Hp 1300 laserjet printer doesnt get ready after initializing but giving orange blinking light, what could be the solution because i have checked the toner is in properly .

Remove the paper and re-loaded it, if it still giving you the blinking, turn it off and hold the go key down while turning it on then release it, this should rest any errors, worse case you have a bad fuser.

1300 Printer prints roller marks only on one side. have tried cleaning roller & changing cartridge.

If it is not the cartridge check the fuser. Open the back access cover shine a light in and look for wear marks on the grey fuser film. If it is worn the fuser film is worn it should be replaced.

Attention Light Is Rapidly Blinking Orange

sorry I got it, usually you may try:
1) check all paper road no paper inside include the area betweem input tray and cartridge unit the area wetween cartridge and fuser unit and output tray.
2) check 4 sensor input sensor near the input tray roller, marging sensor between input roller and cartridge unit, cartridge sensor at oneside of cartridge unit body, fuser sensor near fuser roller. usually need to clean or adjustment the position.
3) check input roller and cartridge unit and fuser unit at running condition when the power on.
anyone nothing running show error light blink, also show the hardware trouble if all sensors are normal.

HP 1300 LJ Fuser Film

If you didn't have the orange light to start with and were replacing the sleeve due to a torn or damaged sleeve it sounds like you haven't plugged everything back in. The Error is an electrical fault with the fuser circuit.

Verify that all wires are plugged back in. Two areas to pay specific attention to are as follows. (1.) BOTH slide clips witth wires that you removed on the upper fuser edges to mount the new sleeve. Thats the connections for the ceramic element. If you get to having to uninstall and check the fuser, put an ohm meter on both ends of the element to ensure it's not shorted. My meter when on ohms has a beep when the leads are touched together when the meter is measuring ohms. Check for the beep when touching both ends of the element and that will prove the element good.

(2) On the board in the base of the machine, there are some plug in connections on the lower board very close to the rear edge and just about centered left to right. It's a cluster of about 3 or 4. Unplug the connections and pay close attention to the height of the pins inside the connection. One of those connections has a nasty habit of the pins slidding through to the other side and not making good contact. If I remember right its the right hand connection in the cluster or the one next to the right one. You can use the connections rest to it as a visual referance for the height. If the pin or pins have pushed down, carefully pull them back up with needle nose pliers or tweezers and replug the connection back in.

Hope that helps you. Just in case, heres a free manual PDF link to use to resolve. It's a 1200 manual as the 1300 wasn't listed but the processes are identical. Most of the parts are the same but check first before ordering any parts.

Hope that helps you.

Fuser Gear Md No. LJ 7416

You will need to purchase these gears from a brother dealer but I warn against just changing the gears you mention, fuser driver gear in printer frame will be ok unless chipped, but usally the big gear on the fuser goes as does a little white one next to it, and these are breaking becase the fuser is hard to turn, if you just change the gear, the fault will reappear after a little use, best bet is to replace fuser assy (approx $150)
