|I have a HP CP1518 that is about 1 1/2 years old. The unit has been working great till recently. Now it prints about 25 pages then goes to Cool Down Mode for about 2-3 minutes then print another 2-3 sheets and go back to Cool Down Mode. If I cycle the power to the unit, I seem to be able to print another 25 sheets till it goes back to Cool Down.|
I have replaced the cartridges, and have updated the firmware, but neither have helped. I have tried the HP forums, and there are posts on there, but no answers about this issue. I thought I would try on here and see if anyone had any ideas?

|I guess nobody's ever seen it before. I sure haven't and there are no answers that I could find. Only thing is this from the service manual.|
After prolonged continuous operation, or printing on narrow paper, the product must pause to cool. Printing will continue when the product has cooled.
Maybe have a fan blow on it? I'd point it at the back where the fuser is.

|Thanks for responding moe.|
Yeah I had read that in the service manual as well, and thought it maybe a sensor that is going bad in the fuser as these printers have no fans. The strange part is that if I shut the printer off and start it back up, then I can print again for a while, but if I let it cool, then it will only do 1 or 2 sheets then error out again.
I talked with HP about the issue, and they want me to depot the printer, but won't tell me what part is bad. Also I have found several posts on this issue with various HP Color LaserJets of this style, and no one seems to have a response as to what causes this issue.
