Hp HP LaserJet 2

HP IIP fuser/sensor

I have 2 HP IIP, one in good working condition and the other on have this problem:
After I have it turn on, the fuser lamp never turn off, the fuser assembly got burned once,
I have a new one now, but the problem still there, I have to turn off the printer fast during the
testing, I swapped all the major assembly from the good printer, the problem never go away, some time
I saw it flashes Paper Jam message on the LCD. Any help would be great.
I've seen this happen on HPII/III printers, but never on a IIP. Have you tried swapping the power supply modules? That's what would keep the fuser on.

I ended up burning/killing the fuser assembly again, I guess
I will keep it for parts, it would be too expensive for
a new fuser assembly and power supply, btw, power supply was
the one I never swap, it also have a paper jam after after
warming up, don't know how much it will cost to fix all those
problems. If all cost around $100 would be ok, I have checked printerworks.com,
fuser assembly alone cost $99, guess I have to keep the good parts for spare.
Thanks for the help.

How badly is the fuser damaged. If it's just the lamp, it's easy to replace. There is also a thermo protector that is likewise easy to replace. Much less than $99. We stock all that stuff. Sounds like you're outside the US. We have 220V lamps for it.

The fuser assembly was over heated, the plastic housing is in a very bad condition
I need 120v, I am sure it's not the lamp, most likly housing and the sensors. Shipping
always a killer for me since I am in Hawaii, 99\% of the companies don't want to ship usps or
charge way more than the postage even if they do. Aside from the fuser damage, there still the
power supply problem and the 'paper jam' error message after warm up. Anyway, Thanks for the

I did a service call to Hawaii once for a IIIP. The person who's printer was broke was station manage at HNL and got me a free ticket. Took 4 days to fix the printer. You know all about the breaks you have to take from work every few minutes. Actually shipping costs to Hawaii are the same as anywhere in the US if you use priority mail.

Was it a great trip for you ? :), I live in HNL also.
I know about the shipping on priority mail(I use it quit offten), but the problem with
most of the companies alway think we are stupid. Charge me $10 on
something that cost only $3.50 or less to ship, one company even ship
it first class after he told me it will be priority mail, else I have to pay $20 on UPS.
Oh well, that's what you get for living far away.

I try and get over there as much as I can. Planning on retiring over there after I make my second million. I don't think the first would be enough to retire on. Still working on the first, I've heard the second is easier. See you over there someday.
