- On the rear or underside of the printer, the access door is not closed properly.
- While the printing process was going on, a stack of papers was loaded into the tray

There is a queue of printouts, but there is a stuck up in print jobs:
Sometimes, it happens that the printer is not able to take printouts from the computer because of the too many queued tasks. These tasks cannot be canceled or deleted using the Windows computer and hence, cause trouble. The way out is to follow the solutions provided by the HP customer support and resolve it. The reason behind this problem can be power outrage or any other.
This is the most common error that is seen in the laser printers. Given the model of the printer, these problems are a result of the infrared oven, heated pressure rollers or xenon flash lamps. The problem is focused towards the fuser, which is one of the major components present in the printer. This component is irreplaceable. In case the printer fuser error is seen on the screen, the fuser is to be replaced, which happens because of the heated pressure rollers or infrared oven. Fusers are the components of the printer that need to be changed from time to time. They are like the wheels of the printer without which the printer shall not work properly. Usually, the fusers can print 1,00,000 pages, but can also sometimes collapse before that. This might occur due to paper jams or other printer problems.
Temporarily, you can switch the computer off and turn it on. Reset it and complete the work. In case the error persists, you need to get the fuser exchanged.
