    Hi. I'm working on an art project and could use a little help. There is a
    simple technique for transferring images onto clay pots that uses laser
    printers. The toner, made primarily of iron dust, stays in place on the clay
    and colors it a black/brown. The problem is you need the image to not be
    fused. Opening the printer while it is printing only gives about 1.5 inches
    of unfused image.

    I'm working with an HP IIIP (LX engine). I tried removing the fuser all
    together, but, as you might expect, it just gave me the fuser error code. I
    also (i think) shorted out the thermocouple, but this made it think that the
    fuser was stuck on, and also failed to print.

    I'm sure there's been plenty of posts about how to fix a fuser bar, but for
    once, I'd like to disable mine on purpose! Is this possible?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    First point the latent image on the paper is mainly carbon , any iron
    filings should remain around the magnets in the developer chamber.
    Try removing the spring/s that hold the pressure roller against the fuser
    roller and pull
    out the paper by hand when it reaches the paper.
