Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies

The printed words comes out as the hand is rubbed on the printed paper?

There are many possibilities .The most common are as follows:-- First, the fusser assembly may be damaged or at the end of its life. The solution is to replace the fusser assembly. Repairing a fusser assembly is generally not recommended because the fusser is considered a consumable printer part and not worth the time or effort to fix. Second, the toner cartridge may be defective and letting too much toner out at one time. In a black-and-white laser printer, the solution is to replace the toner cartridge. In a color laser printer, only replace the cartridge that is exhibiting the problem. Third, some toner may have spilled in the printer. If so, you'll need to clean it out. This will help.good luck.

I already replaced tire rod ends but still it's something like my car is rocking the boat

Possible causes:
out of balance/bent wheel/tire out of round
damaged or severely worn suspension components/frame
steering stabilizer (like a horizontal shock absorber) if applicable
steering box or rack needs replacement
front end alignment
worn ball joints/ macphereson strut assembly
-these areas are where you should start and eliminate possible causes

Specks on print out of Mono Laser Printer HL2040

If its spots this could have been from the cartridge or the fusser unit...
Do a half print test...send a print page to your printer listen to the printer print as soon as you think the printer has printed some little bit switch off the printer...take the cartridge and view the printed portion can you see the spots..if not.....than its your fusser unit thats marking the paper....remove the half printed paper slowly.....not to tear it......remover the fusser unit(hot unit)........at the back of the printer....towards the top....on the unit it self you will see a Teflon paper ....move the gear on the far end of the fusser unit itself and view if there is any spots....try cleaning this spots slowly as not to damage the Teflon or mark the Teflon.....
