Question about Minolta PagePro 1250W Laser Printer

2 Answers

Minolta PagePro 1250w prints out pages with ink smudges. I have put in a new toner cartridge and still have the same problem. I tried to clean the areas in the printer with ink powder on them and removed a lot of it. But I still have large amounts of powder smudged on the printouts. How do I solve this?

    The really bad smudging appeared recently and I have printed about 100 or so pages like that using both the old and a new toner cartridge. What do you mean by PM intervals? Do you suggest that I clean all those parts you mentioned or is it time for a new printer?

How many pages have you printed with it?
There are a lot of parts that have maintenance issues in laser printers.
THis could be the corona wire or the fuser or the drum. A dirty laser will also cause the images to smear and drop. They are a pain in the rear to clean and that is why there is PM intervals on them. Until you have eliminated all the loose toner, you will have to do that in order to track down what else it could be.

    I would recommend that you give it a fantastic cleaning. The Term PM means preventive maintenance. There are a lot of things that have to be cleaned on the printers. They also can be replaced. They include wipers, drums, fusers, chorona wires, laser diodes, toner trays and and rollers, A lot of those items are included in single units but you still can have issues. I would not go out and buy a new printer because of this. YOu can take it in and get it serviced and cleaned for less and save money in the long run. Just keep in mind that it is like your automobile, you have to change the oil and check the other things on it regularly or it will fail.

Most likely cause is the drum unit. Drum unit is the unit that your toner cartridge attaches to. Remove this unit and slide open the cover on the bottom. You should see the green colored drum cylinder. It should be generally clean with no toner all over the surface. Also if you tap on the unit over a sheet of paper it should not be leaking or dropping any toner. If you have a new unit by all means try it but if you inspect this unit and see toner on the drum then that is your cause. You can find replacement drum units for around $75.00 so not too expensive.
Good Luck

    Any updates as to wether the drum unit was at fault? Fixya says that you rejected my help with this issue so I am wanting to see if I can assist you any further with this problem.

    Thanks

Minolta PagePro 1250 poor print quality


It is not cost effective to spend any money repairing an entry level laser printer. Replacing the toner cart or drum is insanity. New B&W lasers equivalent in performance to the 1250w are available on sale for ~ $50. You can get the Samsung ML 2010 for $59 every week on sale. Also the excellent Brother laser. For that matter you can get the a Samsung color laser (CLP-300) for $79 on sale with a $150 rebate.. . Due yourself a favor and get a new printer instead.

The Minolta is a great printer but I bought mine for $50 at Office Max, where they will gladly sell you the drum for $79! Huh?
