Question about Samsung ML-2510 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Fuser problem? Had a piece of the plastic wrapper (for the ream) feed into the printer and when it got to the fuser it melted. Is there anything to replace? Now it won't feed and makes a horrible sound when turned on.

    My husband and I took the printer apart and we were able to get it back together but it didn't help. We ended up buying another 2510 for $50 because we still have three toner cartridges.... We like the printer and we will look more carefully at the paper stack we just loaded. Thanks for your time in answering my post! :-)

If the fuser lamp is gone faulty the machine will return a fuser error code and wont print, but it will still start loading the paper and shouldn't make any weird sound (the fuser is just an heating lamp). I think in your case the problem is probably caused by the plastic fused inside printer's mechanics. The solution is disassembling the printer, cleaning any plastic residue from the inside, and then mounting the printer back. If done properly this may solve the problem.

Brother DCB 7055 fuger not work

If he means FUSER that is a very integral part of melting and keeping the toner in the paper. A bit vague... some fusers light up and then throw a code. Some continue its normal day but has a strip going down middle that the toner rubs off of ( not fused) Some don't even think anything is wrong because a piece of paper has wrapped around one of the rollers and somehow not creating a jam. Either way, unplug before entering. and if it's throwing a code include that on your feed back report.~~~~GO sloow and easy my friend~SC

Paper jam 1

The problem may lie in the fuser or imaging drum; there may still be small pieces of paper jammed in them or any where else along the paper feed roller/trail. If you do remove the fuser or any of the other consumables, make sure the printer is turned off and the power cord removed at the outlet (receptacle). Allow the fuser enough time to cool down. Serious burns (1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree burns) can occur- the fuser gets extremely hot.

Should you need to remove the imaging drum to inspect it for any more tiny pieces of torn paper, do it in a very dimly lit room; use a black plastic garbage bag to store it in. If the imaging drum is exposed to direct light, especially sunlight- you will damage it completely, or possibly shorten the life of it; very expensive to replace.

If there is serious damage other than what I covered and it is going to cost more than half or 2/3rds of what the printer is worth, you're best option is to buy a new one; and dismantle the damaged printer for its precious metals- you can get some money back at the scrap metal yard for the gold, copper, steel, and aluminum; and recycle the plastic parts for $$ too, if available in your area.

Workcenter pe 16 open heat error

Bad Fuser. Google a business called The Parts Drop to order.
It is not difficult to replace. Remove the back cover, 4 phillips screws pull out slide the new one in.
I would remove the fuser first though. And check the plastic in the ends of the fuser. If they are melted, then the power supply has failed and you will have to replace both the fuser and power supply. If the fuser looks normal no plastic on the end of the rolls melted, then just replace the fuser.

Torn gray and brown colored plastic came out of the printer and gives dirty print-outs


The gray/brown colored plastic is actually the teflon sleeve from the fuser unit in the printer. The fuser is the part that heats up and melts the toner onto the paper. Your fuser sleeve has torn and is being ripped every time you try to print and pieces are coming out causing the bad print. You will need to replace the fuser, the part number is FG6-7947-150 you can order one from several places on the internet.

I hope this helps, If so please rate my solution.

Sheet feed won't work

When you reinstall the blue plastic piece underneath, the white plastic sheet that closes over the glass must hang over the blue plastic piece, not tuck under it.

Ink is smudging on paper

Try replacing the fuser bulb located inside the fuser roller. This is accessible from the back of the printer. Remove the plastic piece on the back, unplug the two wire connections to the fuser, remove the toner wiper on top, and then remove the fuser. On one side of the fuser, you'll have a protruded plastic piece with two screws in it. Remove that piece and you'll see one more very tiny screw on top and another regular sized screw on bottom. Remove those both and the plastic piece. Inside you'll find the fuser bulb.

Paper folds and jams before

your description points to a fuser assembly problem which is right where you looked. I'm not sure what that plastic piece is from. if it is black, it probably came from the fuser. That is a replaceable part, but I'm not sure you can still purchase them from Xerox.

If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. 
Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. 
If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. 
If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.

Media Jam Fuser

I got that error turning off the machine in the middle of printing, opened the door to back, unlashed the 2 green tabs to the final heat roller towards the top and there was my page. i gently pulled it out error gone.
but in your case sounds like the paper is having a hard time feeding through all your rollers or the first one... in that case it has to torn down to the first roller and inspected for paper pieces , what ever, and I clean the rollers with laquer thinner rubbing hard on the black rubber until that high gloss is gone.
