One of the main reasons for the fuser failure is its wiring. It could be that it no longer heating or warming up due to being worn out. The average lifespan of an HP printer is up to 100,000 pages. However, the fuser may fail prior to its end of life depending on its printing conditions.
Another reason could be prior printing errors especially paper jams. Not updating your HP LaserJet 1320 driver could lead to several more errors.
It could also mean that the power source is insufficient for the printer to run and print. It is important to meet the power requirement to prevent malfunctions.
