Laserjet M451 print not permanent

HP Recommended

I use my Laserjet M451 for printing notecards on 110lb cardstock. I have been doing this for several years and it has worked fine. Lately some of print can be rubbed off with my fingers. I use factory toner cartridges and have always used the same paper. The problem is more prevalent with darker colors. Am wondering what would cause this problem?

Toner is binded to the media using heat from the fuser assembly. If the media is the same and not a different batch the only thing you can do is make sure you have selected on the printer the correct media as being in the tray. In this instance it should be cardstock. When you choose cardstock as the media it causes the paper to move thru the printer at a slower speed which helps the fuser bind the toner to the cardstock. If already set for cardstock, then you may have an issue with the fuser since there is no other place in the printer settings to increase the temp of the fuser.
