There are many descriptions of this problem online (here for example: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/laser/47529), but I couldn’t find any pictures or videos detailing precisely how and where this problem occurs. So in the interest of extending the life of HP 2300′s everywhere and providing a public service, I made one myself.
I’m no professional videographer, and I shot this with an Lumix LX-5, so the video cuts a bit in places – sorry about that. Hopefully this is helpful to someone.
edit: Feb 2015. I guess some of you were having problems finding a service manual PDF for this printer. Try this link – http://www.marketpoint.com/img/media/pdfs/service_manuals/2300%20HP%20LJ%20Service%20Manual.pdf – and go to page 158 for a good start. Someone shoot me a PDF if that link breaks and I’ll rehost it myself. I just generally don’t like rehosting copyrighted content like service manuals, sorry.
