Question about Epson Aculaser C1100 Printer
MY c1100 LASER PRINTER HAS TAKEN TO LEAVING VERY SMALL COLOURED DOTS EVERY 150mm DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE SHEET OF PAPER. APSON STATE THAT THIS IS A PHOTOCONDUCTOR UNIT PROBLEM CAUSED BY MY USING THE WRONG TYPE OF PAPER (!). I HAVE TRIED TO CLEAN THE UNIT BUT AM LOATH TO FORK OUT £160 FOR A REPLACEMENT IN CASE THIS HAPPENS AGAIN. FOR THAT PRICE I COULD BUY ANOTHER LASER PRINTER(!) ANY SUGGESTIONS OR I AM AT THE MERCY OF AN EPSON CONSPIRACY TO MAKE US BUY THEIR CONSUMABLES MORE OFTEN THAN WE NEED TO....
THe dots on the page are caused by a chip on the blue covering on the blue roller on the photoconductor. Mine too by 8000 pages! I haven't found a way to repair this, but I see that recon. photoconductors are available from 3rd party. Not sure of their quality yet.

Looks like you are caught in a trap of your own making -using the wrong paper. You decide Expensive Epson repair or dump it and get get a cheaper printer. I really do not think there is a DIY solution. You could take a look at www.fixyourownprinter .com There may be an answer. Epson do a very reasonable swap out scheme for dead ink jets- I am on my third R-300- check them out - the 1st out of warranty R 300 cost £45 including delivery and collection of the dead one - the third came free.
