My epson aculaser c1100 was playing up a bit, ink rubbing of on paper, paper jamming in rollers. I opened it up and had a look inside. The rollers near the ink cartridges looked really gunked up so I hoovered them. "I know, what an idiot" I spent hours hoovering them until my hoover bag burst and sent a cloud of black powder all over the room.
Guess what? yep, it wont print now.
I think I HOOVERED THE STATIC OFF, how can I get some static back? Or is my printer doomed for the big scrap heap in the sky? THANKS WENDY

Re: epson aculaser c1100
What you hoovered off is the developer. This is required by the print process. Hoovering it off means there is no way for the toner to get onto the paper. You must replace all the developer units and possibly the toner too. It will be cheaper to by a new printer i think.
You could try a claim on your insurance if you are covered for accidental damage.
In future, maybe you should call an engineer - it is usually cheaper than a new printer.

Just solved the same problem. It is a very slight misalignment of the two rollers behind door E. I closed door E holding the vertical bar below the handle and just 'jiggled' it slightly from side to side, and it latched closed. Paper jam fixed, yippee!!
Find the menu in there you need to reset the toner back to 0.

The dev unit (developer) is the part that the ink toner cartridge fits into, one for each colour (K-black, C-cyan, Y-yellow, M-magenta). Two things wear out on dev units, the bearings at each end of the developer roller or the roller itself. The roller is made of metal and is magnetised so a thin film of toner sticks to it, the magnet is recharged by electrical "rubbing" contacts inside the printer as the drum rotates. Gradually the contacts rub away and so the roller loses its magnetism, this will be noticed by an increasing amount of toner being spilled inside the printer. The roller bearings speak for themselves, gradually the roller will become more & more difficult to turn smoothly and so the toner will not be evenly distributed. The only way to fix this is to replace the worn dev units although cleaning the contacts will help to preserve their life.
Your problem isn't too hard to fix. If you have a vertical line down the page chances are that your heat unit roller is either scratched and so can't fuse the image in that section or has something on it. This is a bit tricky to fix yourself as your supposed to have a tech guy take the heat fuser unit out. You can do it yourself but have to be confident that you can put it back together. Take care it's usually very hot. This printer often reports a jam in the back paper loaders if a page doesn't grab properly (or you quickly remove a sheet just before it grabs to print). Simply open the back door and shut again. If this doesn't solve it chances are there is something stuck in there. Hope this helps
