How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

The fuser unit is a vital component of laser printers. Most fusers last between 50,000 and 200,000 pages, depending on the design.
The fuser unit is a heated roller that melts the toner particles onto the page as it passes through. This seals the toner to the page so it`s no longer in powder form and makes sure that the toner doesn`t smudge of fall off the paper when it comes out of the printer.
The fuser unit must be replaced every 100,000 pages, usually along with the transfer belt and feed rollers as part of a maintenance kit. The error code 010-351 indicates that the fuser has reached 100,000 pages and should be replaced immediately. The printer will not operate until the fuser unit is replaced.
Streaking, smudging, black lines, and double images are all symptoms of a bad fuser. When you notice these printing defects and experience problems, such as paper jams or wrinkles, this is a good sign to replace the fuser kit.
Fuser Units

The coating wears off and causes the toner to not fuse properly. There are replacement rollers and sleeves on the market that you can replace and turn a non-functional fuser into a good working one. Rebuilding fuser assemblies is not a new thing.

The message `Fuser Error` or `Self-Diagnostic` means either the fuser has reached the maximum temperature allowed or there has been an error in detection of the correct temperature during specific times of the printing process.
The message “Fuser Kit Low” or “Fuser Kit Very Low” on your HP Color LaserJet M553 series printer is a warning that you have reached the recommended number of prints for your fuser assembly. (The fuser assembly is the consumable part in your printer which heats up and bonds toner to the paper.
The Fuser is the piece that fixes the toner on the paper. This, like any other consumable part, wears out with the regular use of prints, since it is one of the components that suffers the most due to its mechanical wear and overheating of its components, due to the high temperatures it must withstand.
A fuser unit is a pair of heated rollers within the printer that fuses the toner onto the paper being printed on. Toner particles are pulled to the paper to create the desired text and images as the paper passes the imaging drum.

This, like any other consumable part, wears out with the regular use of prints, since it is one of the components that suffers the most due to its mechanical wear and overheating of its components, due to the high temperatures it must withstand.
As print quality goes down over time, this will be a reason to replace the color printer. We find a black and white printer can sometimes last 10 years or more and most color laser printers are replaced every 3 to 5 years.

fuser
ANSWER : You can buy just the upper fuser roller that is the cause of your problem. The real problem is that there are no instructions for rebuilding the fuser. The Brother fusers are a bit difficult to take apart.

Fuser burning labels
ANSWER : Make sure the labels are rated for a laser printer as the ones for inkjet printers cannot tolerate the heat produced by a laser printer and will tend to scorch. If the labels aren’t rated for a laser printer then there may be nothing wrong with printer.
