Troubleshooting Laser Printers

Laser printers offer very high quality outputs. But due to their complicated design, it is somewhat tedious to troubleshoot laser printers.

Output from the laser printer is not clear

The printouts from laser printers are usually of high precision and quality. If the printout is not clear, the problem may be because of dirt or inadequate toner. Horizontal lines throughout the printout indicate dirty drums or roller in the laser printer.

To solve this problem:-

• Turn off the printer and remove any connections.

• Wipe the exterior of the printer according to instructions in the printer manual.

• If no instruction is provided in the manual, clean the exterior with the soft damp cloth.

• Be careful not to let water inside the printer.

• Open the printer and remove the paper tray.

• Remove the ink powder toner.

• Clean the cavity where toner is placed, with a clean dry cloth. Some laser printers are supplied with a brush; use the brush if it is provided.

• Clean spilled toner ink in the interior of the printer.

• Clean the rollers of the printer, except the sponge roller.

• Replace the toner cartridge if the above steps do not work.

Images are Disproportionate

The drive motor of the laser printer must move the paper at an even speed. This ensures even printing on the paper. If the images printed by the laser printer are too long or too shot, then it is a result of faulty drive motor. In this case, contact the printer manufacturer.

Printouts are Black all over

If the corona wire of the laser printer is damaged, it can lead to the printing of completely black pages.

To solve this problem:-

• Check the Corona wire of the laser printer.

• If the corona wire is not damaged or faulty, replace the toner cartridge of the laser printer.

Printer contains white patches

If the toner cartridge is not supplying ink properly to the paper, the printouts will have uneven white areas in them. Take out the toner cartridge and vibrate it. Then restore the toner cartridge.

Printouts show identical marks repeatedly

A defective fuser assembly can cause repetitive marks like smudges on printouts.

To solve this problem:-

• Clean the fuser assembly according to the printer manual.

• If the printouts are still defective, the fuser assembly will have to be replaced.

So these are the basic but effective tips of troubleshooting a Laser printer.
