HP4250...it's been said before...
If you have a 425x printer, and it sounds grumbly/like a blender..watch it.
We have 2. 1 perfect, 1 sounds like death warmed over. Remembering a thread on here about them eating their gears, I quizzed an HP engineer who was tittilating our 3800...
"Swingplate gears". I said we had 2 dead 4200s we were given with shredded fusers, and he said "parts are the same.."
So I've just gone to sort it..talk about a doddle. The old cog was chewed/worn/burred, and in 5 minutes I'd changed it out for the part from one of the demised 4200s..much better looking part too, with what looked like an extra spacer.
Now that 4250 is silent again...bloody lovely.. If anyone wants instructons, let me know. You don't need HP, you don't need an engineer, and you don't need the entire swingplate.

Would care to share publicly or perhaps on the Wiki for those to come in the future?

ok...it's actually on printertechs.com, but..I'll link to it. It takes 5 minutes to do, and it's made the world of difference to our 4250 #2. I do have small hands though, so..heh..

As I say, I've used the gear from a fuser-expired 4200, and it's a perfect swap.
I used a long phillips driver with a slim shaft instead of their tool - perfect.
