Not much,in most cases both can be switched, thermal is different, lasers use toner not ink, Premium inkjet paper has better ink asorbition properties with little spread, and paper designed for lasers can cope with the heat applied when it passes via the 180 deg fuser that melts the toner to it. Generally paper used in inkjets and laser is just standard 80gsm paper

Never use labels/transparentcy's designed for inkjets in laser machines they wont cope with the heat,

My Samsung CLP-300 Laser jet is "burning" the ink when printing mostly dark colors which causes it to bubble and flake off the paper.


What kind of paper are you using? This printer does not work well with glossy paper and will do the things that you have described. Try using ordinary 20 lb copy paper and see if this makes a difference. If you are already using copy paper, then the problem is with the fuser, getting too hot.

How to maintain your ink-jet printer


In the printer market there have thousands difference brands and models ink-jet and laser-jet printer, how can we eleminate their trouble to the minimon and extend their lifetime as long as we can. The paper tray for the ink-jet printer most are open top style, therefor very easy to catch dust and other cbject and cause paper jam, paper skew, paper rinkle, some cases are easy to remove some don't,when you have those case happen, the first thing you have to do is check the paper tray inside of the bottom , looking for somethings it not belong to, then clean up the paper feed roller with rubbing alcohol. Now how can we prevent it happen, the way is when finish printing use something to cover the tray. when paper jam occure, remenber, never pull the paper opposited way, you have follow the direction let he paper go forward, otherwise you going to damage the paper senser.
How about laser printer, the laser printer it's structure much stronger than ink jet s the cost much higher too, but their maintainence much easier, when it have paper jam occure, commonly replace paper pick up roller and paper stop roller, if you hear noise from back of the machine, 90% the fusing unit have problem, if the noise come from front, the problem almost in cartridge, the cartridge, here , I like to give you advise, use brand name cartridge better than generic one. because, too much manufacture, skill all difference as well as quality all difference, be careful, be smart !

Printer will not print...it jammed ......the paper jammed in the machine..and I pulled it out....


1. Inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)
2. Check that the type of paper being used falls within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers. High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers; look for bonded paper that is "laser and ink-jet compatible."
3. If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the printer.
4. Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper.f you have a laser printermag-glass_10x10.gif, inspect the printer's paper rollers. They should be smooth but not shiny. Rollers that are cracked or glazed are a frequent cause of paper jams and should be replaced by a technician.
5. if you have a laser printer, try cleaning the printer's paper rollers with a lint-free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (available atelectronics shops or drugstore.Try changing the toner or ink cartridge.

Epson r350 printer does not print thick paper or inkjet paper


Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
Hope this is of help.

Printer won't print good color/just put in new cartridge


Thanks for the feed back.

Okay, we are moving into either print head failure (service call) or media.

Please make sure that you have used the tools provided by the vendor of the printer to align the print heads.

Now, make absolutely certain you are using the correct paper. If you are not using paper made for an ink jet type printer you can get into real problems.

Ink jet paper is made to absorb the printer's ink into its fibers. Laser printer paper is made to hold a static electric charge until the toner is attracted to the paper. Then a laser printer's fuser uses heat and pressure to melt the toner and press it into place on top of the paper. Very different paper designs.

One other question for you. When you say the color is bad, are you saying the color is runny, blurred or the wrong color? For example a dark blue shows up as a purple. Can you define exactly what type of print failure you are looking at, please

Chews up paper while printing then jams paper.


Top loader or bottom loader? Ink-jet, dot-matrix or Laser? All have different reasons. Most common are ink-jets. Most common are top loaders. Most common cause is cheap paper. Buy ink-jet paper. Most people buy cheap copy paper (20#). Buy a good 25# or heavier paper to keep that from happening (especially w/ top loaders). People always worry about that extra dollar or two for paper, but it take an average of 10ml of ink to print 300 pages. That's 1 cartridge ($10 to $20 dollars) for less than 1 package of paper ($3 to $5).
