Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies
Sometimes you may be able to solve the common problems yourself in your laser printer if you know a little about the structure inside it, such as paper jams due to improper positioning at the transfer roller. Before the printing process at the fuser assembly, the paper has to pass through the transfer roller inside a laser printer that is used for transferring toner from the cartridge drum onto the printing medium. It works with opposing electrical charges to pull the toner particles.
Paper jams usually occur at the image transferring process, if the paper get stuck at the transfer roller, just open up the side cover and pull out the paper gently, don't touch roller surface without gloves when hold the ends of the roller, as the sweat and oil of your hand can pollute and damage the surface material.
