Question about Canon imageCLASS D880 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Toner prints onto adjoining paper in the mail.

I print a letter, fold it and mail it. When it arrives and is opened, the text of the letter is impressed onto the area it was folded against. Imagine you wrote something in lipstick and folded the page. There would be an impression of the lipstick on the opposite side of the fold.

I suspect the paper, which is 24 lb with 25% cotton content - but why?

Thanks

Tip

Copier Lingo, Jargon, Keywords Explained


When you're shopping for copiers you'll often see a bunch of acronyms or words that don't make any sense to you, the layman. That's what we industry insiders are for, to help translate these words and phrases into coherent thoughts. If you come across any copier lingo that isn't on this list, just contact me and I'll let you know what it means, then I'll add it to this page for future reference.
In alphabetical order:
  • ADF = Automatic document feeder. Every machine since the turn of the century has had one of these. There are variations of this term. See RADF and DHADF.
  • Bypass Tray = an additional paper source that normally supplies envelopes, labels, or heavier paper. It can be used to supply any paper that you don't have readily available in your regular paper trays
  • CPM = copies per minute
  • Developer = A finely ground metal material that adheres to the drum magnetically to transfer an image onto toner, which makes an image on your paper.
  • DHADF = Dual head automatic document feeder. Sometimes call scan squared, this feeder has two scanners that scan both sides of an original in one pass without flipping it around
  • Driver = A print driver is installed on your computer to communicate properly with your model of printer.
  • Drum = The drum is an essential part of the copy process because it "receives" the image from the developer and transfers it onto the paper with toner
  • Drum blade = The blade wipes the drum clean on each rotation. If you have an old drum blade you'll start to find lines on your prints.
  • Duplex = 2-sided printing, copying, or scanning
  • Finisher = An additional piece of hardware that enables the copier to staple and offset sort your printed documents
  • Fuser = The hot section of the copier that fuses the toner off of the drum onto the paper.
  • LCC = Large capacity cassette. This cassette will hold 3,000 or more sheets. It is an additional cost, hardware and adds to the footprint of the copier
  • Ledger Paper = 11 x 17 is commonly referred to as ledger, although it's more often just called "11 x 17"
  • Legal Paper = 8 ½ x 14 paper is commonly referred to as legal
  • Letter Paper = 8 ½ x 11 paper is commonly referred to as letter
  • MFC = Multifunction copier. Implies that it prints and scans along with copying.
  • MFP = Multifunction printer. Most "copiers" nowadays are MFPs.
  • PPM = pages per minute, a modern day variation of CPM since it implies more than just copies
  • RADF = Reversing automatic document feeder. This feeder will automatically flip an original to make a two-sided copy.
  • Saddle Stitch = Another form of finisher that will fold and staple documents like a booklet
  • Sorter = Another term for finisher. It will offset sort your documents and some manufacturers have a stapling function.
  • Toner = Toner is the "ink" of laser printers. It's a VERY fine powder that moves like a liquid, use caution when replacing your toner cartridge. Most toner cartridges nowadays have no open holes for toner to leak, but you should still be careful when handling one.
This should be a big help if this is your first time shopping for the correct copier for your office. If you have found this page you're probably in the process of shopping for a copier, so why not Request a Quote from me while you're at it?! I reside in Houston where I provide free delivery and installation of anything I sell, and I work with network of Sharp dealers all over the USA to get you what you need and have it installed by a professional. Don't delay!

One is that the fold and staple option only works on 8.5 x 11 sized paper, thus printing onto a 11x17 spread and then folding. If letter paper is not selected, that will grey it out.

My black is really faded, when I print a test page by pushing photo and copy, however when I do a print head allignment the black for the allignment paper is sharp and deap, whats going on? Ive tried to...


The PHOTO mode is for printing grayscale photographs. Printed letters using PHOTO mode may appear faint because PHOTO mode is optimized for halftones. See if there is a TEXT or LETTER print mode, and try printing on that setting. If printed letters are still faint, you may have to go into ADVANCED PRINTER PREFERENCES, and see if the TONER SAVE mode is on. If it is, turn TONER SAVE off. Also, try changing the DPI image density, or try other adjustments in the ADVANCED PRINTER PREFERENCES MODE.

An inch wide streak appears on the right side of a laser printer printed page.


If you can rub the toner off the paper it is the fuser.

fuser, the part of a laser printer that melts the toner onto the
medium. It consists of a hot roller and a back-up roller. After toner
is transferred to the paper, the fuser applies heat and pressure to
ensure that the toner stays on the paper permanently. This is why
paper is warm when it comes out of a laser printer.

For toner problem:

Do a half test as follows -
Print one sheet from the fold down tray, just as the trailing edge of the paper
goes into the printer open the toner door to stop the printer. Remove the toner
cartridge, are the marks on the paper that you can see in the printer? If they
are there the cartridge needs replacing.

Misalignment messing up paper edge and printing


I would says check the fuser assembly for the folding the paper problem and the text tilting is a scanner/laser issue.

carefully check the paper path for anything blocking the way.

print a test page and open the lid when the paper is inside to stop it, inspect the paper to see if it's folded and also see the image on the paper to see if it's ok before reaching the fuser

hope this helps

Printing on Stationary with an HP Laser Jet 1320


Most printers and copiers are made for the standard 20# paper, if using a different paper then most of the time you need to specify what type ie: transparency, labels, lbs etc. so the machine can accommodate itself. ( lowering or increasing the heat in the fusing section, and pressure on the paper.)

for that machine everything is done through the pc. go to File, Print, right click on the printer, go to properties got to device settings, General, printing preferences and paper quality, there is a box there for paper options. try setting it to cardstock.
