 The most common failure of the fuser lamps is not the filament,
it is the contacts at the end. They get corroded over time.
I've used some of the lower temperature silver solder on the
lamp ends and that seems to work fine. I've not done this on
the HP yet but I've fix a couple of copiers this way.
 Still, it is a lamp and they do fail over time.
