How to Replace a Fuser in a Color Laserjet CP2025

Updated February 21, 2017

Whether you use your HP CP2025 LaserJet printer for home or work, the fuser plays a vital role. The job of the fuser is to seal the ink to the paper. When the fuser cartridge wears out it can no longer provide that function. If you notice that the ink is rubbing off the paper and getting on your hands, that is a clean indication that the fuser cartridge needs to be replaced. Fortunately, you can order a replacement fuser for the CP2025 and change it yourself.

Shut the CP2025 printer down and remove the power cord. Allow the printer to sit for at least 30 minutes, since the fuser cartridge gets very hot when the printer is running.

Turn the printer around so that the back is facing you. Pull open the back cover and locate the fuser cartridge. The fuser will have a warning sticker on it indicating a high temperature.

Locate the two retaining clips at each side of the fuser cartridge. Flip those clips down to release the fuser.

Pull the fuser straight out of the printer, using the handle on the front of the cartridge. Sit the used fuser cartridge aside and open the box containing the new one.

Remove any packaging materials that were used to protect the cartridge in transit. These packaging materials are coloured orange to make them easy to spot.

Grasp the new fuser cartridge by the handle and slide it into the printer until it stops. Flip down the two retaining clips to lock the fuser in place, then close the printer, reattach the power cord and press the power button.
