No, there is no way to repair the roller. It has a teflon / silicone coating (similar to a frying pan), and must be replaced.

The fuser unit (has the upper roller, lower roller, and other parts) is usually replaced as an assembly. I'm not sure on that particular model, but it may be user replacable.

We get irregular blue bands from side to side of the page, about 30mm depth. Would changing the drum cure this? Any other suggestions?


if the bands are occurring at regular intervals down the page it usualy means that there is a scratch in the drum, a visual inspection will tell you.if there is a scratch then it needs to be replaced if not then inspect the fuser roller for a scratch. the same remedy applies.
replace the fuser roller.

Engraved / carved scratch or markings on laminating roller


If possible, then even out the roller so its plain. Else you will have to replace it, which is probably more expensive than getting a new one.

The printouts produced a column of smear ink, some time with scratch at the top & bottom of the smeared column. the last part of the paper of the column leaving some hot ink dust


That sounds like the fixing film in the fuser has begun so shred itself. the film usually runs off centre and get crunched up at the end. A new film and possibly pressure roller will sort it out. Its fun to fit though!!

When my lexmark x342n prints, the sides of the copy are smudged with toner. not solid along the sides, just in three spots, where it looks like the roller rolled. if there a fix for this


Sounds like your fuser has a spot on it where the Teflon has came off. try looking in the back of the printer at the red roller to check this.

Lexmark 2500 printer paper gets stuck and won't print


. There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.
