Re: My printers smoking
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.

The smoking and melting cable are the result of a short cicuit.
The problem is going to be determining which end the short is occuring on. It most likely is the carriage end of the cable that is the culprit. Most likely you will need to replace the carriage assembly and of course the trailing cable as the new one may have also been damaged.
You may need to use your fingers to check if the top of the carriage assembly (where the cable connects) is also getting hot (warmer than normal).
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.
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
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.
I can provideyou with the procedures to default the printer. That may help.
1. start with the printer turned off.
2. Press and holde the GO, Select and the Right Menu Arrow buttons while turning the printer on.
3. Hold the button in until the display show "RestoringFactory Defaults" then let go.
4. The printer should come back to a Ready state.
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.
