I just got a used HP Laserjet P3015 printer that is jamming or stopping "in the fuser area".
If I print a menu / report from within the printer controls 2 pages end up half way through the printer.  One has about 1/3 of the report printed.  The other is blank.  So, I imagine that the printing stops part way through.

I've read about as much as I can find about this printer - which is precious little.  I read that maybe the pendulum is in need of lubrication, is sticky or .. whatever .. I have no idea what it looks like.  I understand that I have to remove the fuser to see it.  But, I can't find instructions for removing the fuser.

The cartridge is an OfficeMax cardtridge.  By the price of these things I'd rather not replace it to find it not being the problem.  And, I'd rather suspect that OfficeMax would have some reputation issues if their cartridges weren't generally good.  Of course even HP cartridges can be a problem.

Anyway, I think I'd like to tackle the pendulum first.

Any other suggestions would be very much appreciated.
