Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printer starts printing 2 inches after the 1 inch top margin

I cleaned the pinch rollers until they were no longer shiny. Unfortunately, I think I have rotated the rollers so that they are out of phase with the form feed.

Why does tape go slow, then stops?


Gary hi! I am not sure whether your machine is solenoid controlled but if it is then I would suspect the solenoid that operate the capstan roller to be overheating, I had the very same problem with my Studer and Revoxes and when I smeared some heat sink compound (Available from electronic stores selling components like Radio Shack etc.) and fit if the chassis is cast aluminium like the better manufacturers use,as a heat sink. You can chech the belts and the lubrication of the drive system but I doubt that. Clean the capstan roller with denatured alcohol or cleaning alcohol.

My reel to reel will not play.


You need a new capstan belt or the capstan shaft is glazed as well as you have a hard shiny Pinch Roller. Each of these items need to have friction to work.

Having constant paper jams - the paper does feed and the document prints about 3/4 of the page, but crinkles up before exiting the printer, like the slit where the paper is supposed to come out after...


If the paper is jamming at the exit rollers, you will be need to clean the rubber on the rollers. It gets shiny and does not grip the paper to take it away.
I clean the rollers with Isopropyl Alcohol and the green kitchenlb_icon1.png scouring pads. When the rollers are shiny they often have white/grey markings on them. Keep scrubbing until rubber is roughened up.

Once I turn my printer psc 2410 photosmart on it makes an annoying sound like if something is stucked and freezes staying on the clock sand mode . What should i do?


During printing, the HP product makes unusual or loud noises. You might describe the noise as grinding, squeaking, or screeching.
    Step one: Clean the rollers in the back of the product
    1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
    2. On the back of the product, find the rear door.
    3. Squeeze the tab or tabs on the rear door, and then pull the rear door toward you to remove it.
    4. Open the rear door on newer Photosmart, Officejet, or PSC productsInside the back of the product, rotate the paper rollers with your fingers to make sure that they can turn freely.
    5. Rotate the rollers located on the inside of the rear door to make sure that they can turn freely.
    6. Remove any torn pieces or scraps of paper that you can see.
    7. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe the paper rollers inside the product and on the inside of the rear door clean. Rotate the paper rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around them.
    8. Reattach the rear door. Make sure that it snaps into place.
    Step two: Clean the rollers in the front of the product
    1. Lift the cartridge access door to access the front paper rollers in the product.
      NOTE: On some Officejet models, you might need to close the document catcher. Then, look in through the front of the product to access the front paper rollers.
    2. Inside the front of the product, rotate the paper rollers with your fingers to make sure that they can turn freely.
    3. Remove any torn pieces or scraps of paper that you can see.
    4. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe the paper rollers clean. Rotate the paper rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around them.
    Step three: Clean the small rollers Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe the small rollers, also called the pinch rollers, clean. The pinch rollers are the small metal rollers directly above the paper rollers. Rotate the pinch rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around them.
    NOTE: Do not clean the carriage rod. Removing or damaging the lubrication on the carriage rod can cause the product to make more noise. Figure 9: Carriage rodc02203348.jpg Step four: Clean the cartridges
    1. Connect the power cord to the back of the product, and then press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn on the product.

    6. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe any ink or debris from the copper-colored electrical contacts on the cartridge.
      CAUTION: Do not touch the ink nozzles or the electrical contacts with your fingers. This can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. Figure 13: Clean the copper-colored electrical contactsc00617184.gif 1 - Electrical contacts 2 - Ink nozzles Figure 14: Do not touch the copper-colored electrical contacts or the ink nozzles Place the cartridges on a clean sheet of paper, with the nozzles facing up.
    Step five: Clean the electrical contacts inside the product
    1. Dampen a clean, lint-free cloth or swab with distilled water, and then wipe any ink or debris from the electrical contacts inside the carriage
    2. Let the cartridges and carriage sit for 10 minutes to allow them to dry, or use a clean, dry swab to dry the contacts.
    3. Slide each cartridge into its slot at a slight upward angle, and then press firmly until you hear the cartridge click into place.
      • Install the tri-color cartridge in the slot on the left.
      • Install the black cartridge in the slot on the right.
      I hope this helps you!

My player eats the vcr tapes!


It is most likely that the pinch roller will need replacing. Once these become glazed (shiny) the tape slips over them, resulting in 'chewing' as the edges of the tape ride up or down the capstan shaft and into the top or base 'rabbit' of the exit guide nearby. Replace the roller, clean the tape path (capstan, guides, heads, take up arm, etc., *gently of course*) with alcohol solution or methylated spirit - do not use q-tips to clean the drum.

VCR should be OK after that. No further repair should be necessary here, and rubber pinch rollers for VCRs are not expensive to order as a generic part for this model.

Our church has a Minolta DiAlta copier. It's useless right now because whenever you try and make a copy, the paper gets jammed just before it exits the machine. That is, there are two rollers that pinch...


Hello,
as I can tell from your description your impresion is that the fuser rollers do not rotate, but if the paper came out once it is clear that they do rotate.
If you whant to disassemble it you first must check the separation fingers, most likely one or tow separation fingers are out of their sokets or are worn out.
I belive that is the couse of you problem.
Let me know about you progress.

Cassette gets entangled, and does not play well


Cassette tape machines will occasional require maintenance after a certain period of usage. First open the cassette door and remove the tape and any broken tape remaining inside. Some models allow you to remove the cassette door allowing you to have better access to clean the unit. Next you will need to clean the capstan with alcohol and a Q-tip. The capstan is the metal post which the rubber wheel (pinch roller) pushes against to drive the tape across the tape head. Basically clean all the shiny metal parts including the tape head. Some of the tape residue may be difficult to clean, I use Tricloroetilene which has been regulated by the government, but you may try a product called Goof Off to clean the difficult parts, but it could eat the plastic and rubber parts so be careful. Next use a rubber cleaner on the pinch roller so you do not dry the rubber out, or it will become useless. The other problem is the cassette may be driven by a motor and belts. The belts may need to be replaced and the pulleys cleaned. For this you will need to disassemble the unit to access the belts but the cleaning of the pinch roller and capstan may fix your problem, if not you need to open it up to replace the main belt.

Eating tapes


Chances are that that "milky substance" has gummed up the works. Sounds like the pinch roller (the rubber wheel that draws the tape through the machine) may have gunk on it, so when you put a tape in and push play, the tape sticks to it, and simply wraps the tape rounmd and round.... eating the tape - as you say. The capstan SHAFT (see below) could also be dirty. Another possibility is that the take up spool (in the machine) is gunked up so it won't turn - so that the tape is spooled OUT of the cassette and is scrunched up inside the machine and the machine eats it.

There are OTHER scenarios, BUT ALL (including the above) require taking the machine apart and throughly cleaning it with alcohol (or - depending on what you're cleaning - even soap and water!).

Cleaning the capstan pinch roller and the capstan SHAFT concievable could solve your problem. The capstan shaft is the shiny metal shaft that pulls the tape through; the pinch roller "pinches" the tape AGAINST the capstan shaft which is how the tape plays.)

It's hard to "get in there" to do this cleaning (not to mention even SEE what's going on) short of taking the mache apart.

Rewind or fast forward


Though not familiar with this model, VCRs of all sorts have an idler mechanism which drives the supply and takeup spindles. Either the idler is somehow defective and slipping, and, assuming this idler is belt driven, the belt may be slipping just enough to cause a no Rew/FFW condition. If you had access to a test tape jig (a clear dummy tape, which allows a tech to view what is happening in the area normally obscured by the loaded tape), this might give a clue as to what is happening. On alot of machines, a problem with Rew/FFW would also mean a tape takeup problem in standard play, result in tape spilling out inside the machine. Sensors would catch this condition and go into a error mode, as yours is doing. One other thing which might be happening here, is the pinch roller not being disengaged from the capstan in the Rew/FFW modes. I think this is where I'd look first, and you can probably see if such is happening just by pulling the cover off the VCR. The pinch roller is just to the right of the rotating video head. In the play and forward/rev search modes it will press the tape up against the capstan (a rotating shaft). When in Rew/FFW, the pinch roller should be pulled back from the capstan, maybe 1/4 inch or so. Whatever the case, repair will likely take someone tech savvy. Costs might not be economically justified, with the low-cost, disposable rigs sold in the last 10+ years.
