HP LaserJet 5m – Lasts forever (with a few repairs)

dsc06772.JPGProbably the only part they skimped on…a single toothed gear in the fuser assy, this fuser appears to have been installed with a dodgy toothed gear – the gear seems to be a hard plastic or at the very best a too soft mild steel. As can be shown by the pictures, a few teeth fell off and hence caused some havoc!..The hot roller also has some strange marks on it – strange for one with such low time ~ 70 000 pages.

2nd hand HP Laserjet 5m off ebay with a good fuser unit and a bonus duplex unit and we are back in business….these units are great to pull apart and put back together!
