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 markings or scratch in laminating roller

probably will be best to junk it and get another one as the cost to repair will probably exceed the new cost.

I met with small accident and my scooty pep has scratch..thus how can fix scratch..

The fix depends on how deep the scratch is, and how high quality you want the result.. If it's light, use rubbing compound and a fresh coat of wax. If it's through the color coat, down to the primer or metal, you need to mask the repair area, sand until smooth, reprime, paint,and clear coat.

Scratch on the front panel, how do we repair. Does it have to be replaced?

Scratches aren't an easy or inexpensive fix. However, if, like most appliances, your's has a protective clear coat on it, you can try using a small applicator (like a Q-tip swab, etc.) and a very, very light amount of clear lacquer and lightly dab it onto the scratch and quickly wipe off the excess with a clean, lint free, cloth.

You can buy a can of clear aerosol lacquer that closely matches the type of finish on the fidge panels, (matte, satin, gloss).

The trick is to NOT spray directly onto the panels, but rather spray a small amount into the cap of the aerosol and using the swap, dip it into the liquid and, again, dab it lightly onto the scratch.

Another option is to purchase one of those automotive scratch repair kits that you see advertised on TV or in auto parts stores and follow the directions for fixing the scratch.

If you take your time and go lightly and carefully with the application, you can get a pretty decent repair that will make the scratch all but disappear. If it's also dented, then you've got another issue to deal with, but in any event, attempting a repair of the scratch will cost you hundreds of dollars less than buying a replacement door panel.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

How do I fix a deep scratch on the screen, it is a wide scratch,maybe like a small toothpik size, when black background is on, it shows as a white scratch, I have tried vasoline, but it does not fill in...

Unfortunately there isn't anything you can do. The LCD surface itself has been physically damaged and no longer works properly. This isn't simply a scratch. The only solution is to replace the display panel, and they are nearly impossible to find unless you are an authorized servicer working on a warranty repair. There are companies that sell parts removed from sets, but most sets are junked because of bad displays. Since the display is the single most expensive part, if you can find one it may not cost much more just to replace the TV. There's always a sale going on somewhere, and many online vendors as well.

Scratched Xbox 360 motherboard

Im sorry but this is the equivelant of a car being written off. It cant be fixed, simple as that. If it is possible to be fixed, it would work out cheaper to just buy a new one

The disc is unreadable

Is it just dusty, or are there scratches?
If it is just dust, clean is with something soft- t-shirts work quite well ni the abscence of anything else.Make sure to clean from the middle to the edges in lines, not circles.
For small scratches, a sometimes very useful solution is toothpaste.Put some toothpaste by the scratch and rub it it, then wash of excess toothpaste and dry the disc.The toothpaste fills in the scratch, leading to a temporary fix.
