Default Re: Printer smoke?

Ahh I see. This printer is so cheap that it doesn't have a cooling fan for the fuser.

It's probably steam due to no forced air cooling.

Check out this link your printer uses the same engine.

Either deal with it or buy a good used higher end model.

My two HP 1200s have been chugging since 2001 with over 50k on the clock each just 1 set of the above parts kept them going. Original fuser on both.
Elements of the past and the future combining to make something not quite as good as either.
