If you are talking about the drum units in a laser printer cartridge, no fluids at all should ever be used as they will cause the toner to clump up creating even bigger problems for you. You can gently clean the drums with a clean lint free cloth but you must be very very carefull to not scratch the drums or you will create a print defect that is permanent.

I have a Dell 2335DN laser printer that produces a 'paper jam 0' error message but there is no paper jam. I open and close the paper tray multiple times until the paper actually prints. Suggestions?

I imagine this is a Lexmark model and if so then all you need to do is clean the pickup roller. that's the one that pulls the paper out of the tray. Use a damp cloth and put a little fairy liquid on it and clean the roller. Fairy liquid is a great degreaser and will remove all the oil from the rollers surface. it will then pickup first time provided the roller has not worn smooth.

When we send fax, the rubber roller on top which grabs the sheet does not have enough pressure to lead the sheet in the machine. So the fax cannot go through and be sent. Do people still provide service...


The paper pickup roller in the Feeder is bad and needs replacement. But still if you want to use it for some time then you can clean the roller with some cleaning liquid like a glass cleaner, even indl. alcohol also. But remember that the liquid should not be applied directly to the roller. Always use a clean cloth for this. And do not take much quantity so it should drip inside. Try to clean well by rotating the roller slowly.

Take care.

After changing the ink catridges and resetting the drum fuse lately (note: it is known that the fuse will be blown off after certain number of prints but otherwise is in good condition), my Epson Acculaser...

The repeating image is a ghost image, and here is described what it can be. Probably if you solve this, you also solve the red-dot problem. If possible, I would suggest to replace the wiper blade.
Repeating images on laser printerThis likely means a faint ghost of the main printout at a distance equal to the circumference of one of the rollers or photosensitive drum.

Depending on where the problem originates, this could be a bad wiper (cleaning) blade, faulty corona, or incomplete fusing.

  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of the photosensitive drum, it is a wiper blade, erase lamp, or corona problem.A residual latent image or residual toner is sticking to the drum and not being properly cleared.

  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of one of the fuser rollers, then the fusing may not be complete due to damaged rollers or an incorrect temperature setting.

It is easy to determine where the problem is located: Interrupt a printout in mid-stride (where part of the paper is between the toner/developer and fuser. If the un-fused image has ghosting, it is a fault in the area of the drum

Gestetner 428 colour photocopier: background effect all over

It's possible it could be the transfer cleaning unit, but it's more likely to be the fuser or the transfer belt itself. If the hot roller is old or dirty or the press roller isn't providing enough tension, all of the toner might not be getting fused to the paper.

If only one color were showing mottling, it would probably be the developer, but it's unlikely that all four developers went bad at the same time.

How to clean the roller

Moisten a lint-free cloth with deionized water or isopropyl alcohol, and scrub the roller. So, to clarify, put the liquid on the cloth & then scrub. A little bit goes a long way, so don't soak it with the liquid.

Paper jam problam

no the tefflon is not fitted properly as you again open the printer and clean the tefflons upper side as any of the greece substance is got stuck up on the tefflon to cause this problem.also clean the pressor roller of orange/red colour with the isoprophyl and then slowly rub the liquid with very dry tissue.your pressure roller is perfectly alright as this paper jam problem comes very often after the tefflon is changed if it is not fitted and cleaned properly.
