part 1

ok if anyone ever finds this in the name of

God, Alah, Mohamada and all of the prophets

Your printer is no more of this world - decest, past tense, a dead parrot, a former printer.

please just pick up the unit and put it next to the road.



Ok spent two hours pulling the thing apart, another hour cleaning it, fuser was crushed with paper from a printout 5 months ago. Lucky the house didn't burn down.
Another 90 minutes putting it back together.

If you would rather try your hardest and fail then please read on.


here are things I remember

do what the video says put the unit on the edge of the table, I turned it on its side so I could see the bottom of the unit. The two "clips" look like the old mouse "clit" , it is a push in nipple ( n i p p l e in case they edit this automatically)
push in the two "buttons" hard ( I used a small screwdriver) and use a screwdriver to lift the plastic up.
Mine didn't break - if yours does you just saved 2 hours - throw it out.
wiggle the plastic a fair bit.

From the front there is a clip near the top of the unit , about 20mm under the scanner tray edge.
Either wiggle it a lot or use a SD (screwdriver) to pull the plastic back.

the back bit is just a bit of wiggling, if you have come this far don't worry about what you do it is not going to work anyway, just get it off.

OK - what are the two MYSTERY clips.

when you undo the 4 screws holding the fuser you will find you can pull it forward (towards the back of the machine)
No, the blue/purple tabs do nothing, have them up, down , whatever works for you to pull the fuser out.

so now look back at the RHS and you will see two sets of wires move, one leads to the BIG white plug on the left of the side of the right side of the unit, just unpug it and then start to unravel the cords ( 5 minutes later)

the other is harder it is the thin set of two white wires with a white plug under all the other wires, use a small screwdriver to pry the other wires off the clips and then un-clip the socket ( it just pulls out - wiggle left - right - left etc) - twenty minutes later


If you are still lost - just get the wife or kids to wiggle the fuser and look at the Right Hand Side RHS of the unit, you will see them move towards the top - you have to follow the two wires to where they connect to the circuit boards.
If you still don't follow then throw the thing out now.

ok you have un-clipped the two plugs.

now back to the fuser, you will find you cant pull it out BUT not all the way.
However you can move it, and pull it, so you can undo the two screws which hold it together, one on the left and one of the right, there are only two screws on the unit so have a look.

Now this is where it gets hard, the unit itself falls apart.
so have a good look at it as this might be the last time you see it in one piece.

in one piece.

pull it apart gently and look at what falls off. the top bit will fall off.
For later yes it is suppose to be at that silly angle. Check the top bit now - see how there is a gaping hole to allow the paper to come out.

now you have it apart just clear the stuff out of it. if like me you will find a lot of brown paper. How lucky are you your house didn't burn down.

So you have cleaned and vacuumed the whole thing

now for the hard bit. Everything up to now was easy, get another drink, for every ones sake, put the kids to bed and pretend its going to be ok.

we have to put it all together,

position that loose top flap back into the unit, yes at a weird angle.
screw the two halves together with the screws.

put the fuser back into the main unit.

Sure - it just goes straight back in.

you need to line up the left edge the best you can. there are two things which go into the other things, if it was me i would say males into the females however it will probably get edited out.

put it in as far as you can :) then look at the bottom right corner of the fuser and you will see where it is sticking. You need you push it in more and up a bit.
Push it - more - yes more.
Once you get over that it is all down hill.

it will sit flush again

screw the 4 screws back in

put the RHS cover back on - don't close the front and back covers just wiggle and move the covers until you can bang the RHS cover back on. Quite easy for me but I was over it by now.

front door didn't want to close but just move that little lever up and it will close even with a clunk, the back door for me closed easily.

Now at this point I had 1 piece in perfect condition and 1 broken piece left on the table, didn't know nor care where they came from.

plug it in and turn it on.

print something.

printed on the left 5cm of the page and nothing else, lets try again and pull it all apart, waste of time.

Unit sitting outside.

Hope you have a better result.

Didn't mean to miss anyone's religion just well over Samsung, will buy a new BW printer tomorrow, got 2 years out of it. got to be happy with that.

PS - was fun - lots of cool stuff under the RHS cover and might think of pulling it apart when it stops raining.


best hopes - wished - dreams - prayers etc...
