Ok weird question here. I've ruled out all obvious possibilities but looking for some others.

I have an HP HP LaserJet M3027 MFP Series network printer that is printing out every so often each print job be it 5 pages 10 pages or more.

Some pages are coming would with a crease fold down one side. Not all print jobs are doing this.

I looked for the obvious something jammed in printer. nothing.
Cleaned out with air can.

It still seems to do this.

Could it be the toner ?

I replaced the toner with a bran new one just now. waiting to see if that is the issue.
The one that was in there wasn't only but maybe 1 or 2 weeks old.

I did however notice on one of my print jobs I sent there. Ink power link splotches on one side but that wasn't with all print jobs.

Any ideas anyone?

If its got a high page count I would look at a maintenance kit.

This is usually caused by debris somewhere in the paper path or a problematic fuser.  Since you already cleared any debris I suspect you need to replace the fuser.

Is it expensive to replace the fuser?
The device is not that old but has a page count of 87,000

Yes the fuser is fairly expensive, anywhere from $150.00 to $300.00, though at the higher end you'll get more than just a fuser.  At 87000 pages you should replace the fuser anyway - probably should change it at 50000-60000.

You would get the fuser and a maintenance kit which includes stuff like rollers and separation pads.  Here is an example.

Yes its common to do this maintenance.  Yes it can be hard without experience.  You would probably need the service manual if you wanted to attempt this yourself.
