The subject says it all really. If one accidentally uses inkjet photo glossy paper in a colour laserjet, would it damage the printer?
If it would how badly would it damage it? What replacement parts would be necessary.
Conversely if laser glossy paper e.g. HP Professional Photo Paper 200 is used in an inkjet, will it damage the inkjet printer?
Thanks in advance,

Using glossy coated inkjet paper in a laserjet could certainly damage the laser printer because the inkjet coated paper is not designed to handle the high temperatures of laser printing, particularly the fuser roller. In a bad (maybe worst?) case the coating would delaminate on the roller, damaging the roller and requiring service.
Using photo paper designed for laser printing in an inkjet printer should not cause any damage, but the results are likely to be poor, wasting the print.
