Never mind

never post about anything before you google it

If the printer has a rear hatch for paper to exit straight out, try that instead of letting it curl up to the top.

Thanks, but my post-post googling tells me its a common problem, either the fuser (un-economical to replace) or the mylar over the fuser assembly (cheap but a pain to disassemble & install).

You’ve been here since 2004. Since then, how many times have you seen “never mind” have the desired result? Really now, show some dignity.
