What is the brand and mode, I would like to see the information you found on steam. If it is a laser printer and it is cold in the room and the paper has humidity, I could see were steam would form. Smoke would have a burning smell and is always a bad thing.

J power and smokes white


Possibly a head gasket problem (as the head heats up it warps slightly, allowing coolant to seep into the cylinders, which is the source of the white smoke--steam) Is the motor using coolant?

Printer smokes!


This could be steam created when the paper goes through the fuser. Heat dries the moisture out of the paper so causing a slight amount of steam

UNIT VERY HOT WHEN PRINTING, EVEN SINGLE PAGES, AND SMOKE OR STEAM COMING OUT WHERE PRINTED COPIES COME OUT. NO WATER RESIDUE OR SPILLAGE NEAR UNIT AND PAPER NOT DAMP.


Look into changing out the drum that may be defective.
If this unit is that hot that it smokes but it still prints see if there is a cooling fan.
This unit running under the condition you mentioned might start a fire.

Printer does not print. It has worked fine for about 15 months. I can send a document to be printed, the printer goes through the motions, makes all the "correct" sounds, but ejects a totally blank page....


it seems that the cartridge is empty but if ot check as below
u need to turn off ur printer & pull out the cartridge and clean the pinout of the printer cartridge mount then also clean the pinout of the cartridge with acitone then try it if it's not work u need to pull again the cartridge and apply the output ink place to a hot steam then install it back again.
hope it works

It might not be smoke but rather steam. I found a help page at HP.com:

Moisture on Trailing Edge of Paper

Read that document and see if it fits the bill. If you suspect this is really smoke, it means your printer is having a serious issue and you should stop using it immediately. I hope it's just the "steaming" problem. If it's smoke, it's too dangerous to continue using.

Post back and good luck.

Printer prints backwards/upsidedown


This sounds like an advanced setting on your printer setup. When you get to the print dialog, hit Properties for your printer, then look around there for a "mirror" or "reverse" setting. Different printers use different drivers, so your configuration options are difficult to predict.
