Hewlett Packard Printers?

Hi - If anyone is familiar with HP Laserjet 1300 printers, maybe you can
tell me why my docs are suddenly printing with a "crinkle" on the top left
hand size of the papers?

I've tried opening some of its panels to find what might be wrong, but I
couldn't see much of the rollers, etc. and some panels I couldn't seem to
open at all.

Any good suggestions would be helpful.

thanks, Perila

This guy thinks it is the teflon cover on the fuser.

http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/laser/25670#1 Does anyone know
why my HP Laserjet 1300 crinkles the upper left corner of the paper?

// The teflon cover on the fuser may be starting to tear. Only way to
see if to open back and shine fashlight towards the upper roller ot see
if the cover is in place or you see bare metal at that end. It is also
possible you have a small piece of media jamed in the paper path which
is causing this. I would lean towards the teflon. //


I would've thought the rollers needed cleaning, but I've never seen one
and it sounds like he has.

My first thought as well. I had a Ricoh do a similar things a couple of
months ago.

Hi - Thanks for all your help.

But I'd like to ask Mr. Evans how he solved the problem with his Ricoh.
Did you replace the teflon yourself?
If so, where did you puchase the material?
or did you bring it to a repair shop?

thanks, Perila

It's under a maintenance contract so the repair guy came out and swapped the
part. My client gets a cheaper rate from Ricoh as I get to be first line
support but as soon as it needs a screwdriver I have to call them.

I can answer this!

The rollers have gone. There are companies offering kits of all the bits
plus a video of how to do it. Takes an hour and makes the printer like new.

I did mine on Christmas Day after lunch one year!

Nothing else will work. The manuf will do a complete service for a few
hundred quid but that's probabhly more than the machine's worth.
