Crinkling Sound When Printing from HP 1200

My HP 1200 is making a crinkling sound when it prints. I have figured out it is the roller bar right before the paper exits the printer that is the problem. The film that covers the roller bar is frayed at one end.

As long as it prints OK I am not too concerned, but should I be concerned about this fraying of the film, and is it worth repairing or investing in a new printer? Thanks in advance
If it were up to me I would recommend a new printer. To have a repair technician come out and fix your printer, your looking around $200 or more. Your problem lies with the fuser assembly. The fixing film on the fuser has torn.

Thanks for the input on the problem. One last observation for comment:
As long as the HP 1200 continues to print OK I should keep using it. Only when print quality degrades should I consider replacement or repair of the fuser assembly.

Thanks again to Moe and Anonymous for their suggestions!
