Question about Canon imageCLASS MF8170C All-In-One Laser Printer

4 Answers

Please help me with my Canon-engined printer

I bought a printer that I believed was an Apple color laser. Well, it turned out to be a canon laser engine (PT#10392A) that was brand new. As the seller suggested, I bought the Apple mother board related to this engine and stuck it in. Then, I tried to install the printer.

My problem is (Please don't laugh): I cannot figure out from old Apple manuals or the instructions on the inner door of the printer...how to remove the oil absorption sheet that is affixed to the drum. I will pay for someone to come out and do this for me if necessary as I think that the printer is really neat and it is brand new inside. However, I have not had a chance to use it yet. I have the color toner, the oil and everything...but I don't have an installation manual. I've been unsuccessful finding a manual that relates to this canon engine.

I live in a tiny town in Texas and I am the most technologically-evolved person in the town. Please help.

    The part number listed on the exterior of the printer (it does have other information indicating that it is a Canon printer engine) and that part # is: 10392A. I don't think that it is an MF8170c, but it is probably a predecessor to that printer

    No. There is a sheet of some kind affixed to what appears to be a rotating slick-surfaced object that one tech friend believed was the "drum" of the printer reproduction system.

    I think that what I need to do is to take photos of the printer with my digital camera so that all of you experts will be seeing what I am seeing. The item that you have pictured above is not what I am looking at.

    I will send photos ASAP.

    Are there not any other model#'s you can provide..?? how about on the Apple Manual, is there a model number there? Also, it may be another manufacturer that uses the Canon engine.. Any additional info would help greatly...

    ** as a side note for your information, when is says it is a Canon Laser Engine, it just means that the guts are powered by Canon Parts
