HP 1300 Laser printer - Toner not bonding on paper

I have an unusual problem. On an HP Laserjet 1300 B/W printer, the toner has stopped bonding to the paper. It prints, but smears as if it was wet. I've never seen this on a laser printer.

The tomer was installed about a month ago and has been working fine.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sounds like the fuser unit has failed - this is the bit that normally gets hot and bonds the toner to the paper. I guess yours is not getting hot - or not hot enough.
