Laserwriter II fuser smear
I did that. The roller is silver colored, and the silver color seems to be just a plastic covering over a black roller. On my roller, the silver plastic is torn at the exact spot that the printer smears its output.
Will you please email me when you get more of these fuser assemblies?
What's my most likely screwup? Do you know where this goes?
O ordered and installed your paper pickup kit for this Laserwriter II. I installed it today in about 30 minutes.
Just wanted to say how fabulous your instructional video is. The procedure is really easy when you can see how to do it. I imagine this would be very hard to write clearly. The video is awesome.
Since I installed the kit, paper pickup is perfect. It's amazing! Yesterday it could hardly feed anything successfully. Now it's perfect.
By the way, that spring isn't from the fuser roller. I also had the registration assembly out and am checking there. Also, could it be from the paper tray? The printer is working great, however. Maybe it's not an important spring.
One other thing. In the video, you mentioned tightening the three screws that have the habit of coming out and falling into the toner cartridge...well I only have two screws there. The right one has already fallen out.
Should I worry? Move the center screw to the right hole? or do nothing?
I found another site on the web where they sell parts and have online diagrams. As far as I can tell, there are only a few compression springs in this particular engine and mine are all intact. The printer is working beautifully.
As I bought the printer used, I suspect that this spring was dropped in long ago and I just happened to find it on the bottom. But I'll send a picture anyway.
