I have a problem of when printing out that is only white paper that take it out even I changed new toner and no change . Pls u have any solution give me the solution .


For a laser printer, printing is a few steps:
* receiving the print-data (which seems to be working fine)
* putting an electrostatic charge on the drum, by using a laser to draw the print-image onto the drum (working?)
* forcing toner into contact with the drum, but only the "charged" part of the drum holds the ink (working?)
* using heat from the fuser-unit to "melt" the toner into the paper (working?)
* ejecting the paper

If the paper is warm, then the fuser is working.
If not, then your fuser needs replacing.

Either take the printer to a qualified printer technician, for professional trouble-shooting, or buy a replacement printer, and responsibly recycle the old printer.

Is my 2550L toast????.


The HP 2550 does take a while to print. It calibrates through all the cartridges & then you'll see your print soon after. You probably need your printer professionally cleaned out with a toner vacuum, the squeaking could be coming from the drum or a pick up roller.

Samsung ML-1710 Printer: Online/Error (red) lite ON: won't print


It is not a computer problem, when your printer won't come to ready. The lights flashing are due to a failure of some sort - electronic, or perhaps a fuser warm up problem. The fact is, whatever the fault, it is cheaper to replace this printer than have it repaired.

Lazer not scanner


If I am not mistaken you are getting blank paper when you give printing command am I right if yes........

every laser printer has one data scanning and transferring data to toner drum unit in it.

BLANK PAPER PRINTING PROBLEM ONLY LINKED WITH

1. TONER CARTRIDGE PROBLEM OR

2. SCANNING UNIT OF YOUR LASER PRINTER PART OF YOUR LASER PRINTER.



CHANGE TONER IF PROMLEM IS SAME THEN IT IS CONNECTEE TO SCANNER OF YOUR LASER


IF NOT SOLVED MAIL ME TO inkcity@rediffmail.com

Printer won't print


According to the operation manual: If alarm light and data light blink every 5 seconds- TONER LOW (purchase more toner and have it ready when the 'toner empty' is indicated). If alarm light and data light stay lit- TONER EMPTY (replace toner cartrige with new one).
