All digital copier and printers have a variety of image quality issues including lines, repeated patterns, smears and light areas. Some of the copier printer repairs require service technicians other you can resolve yourself. If after trying these following simple printer copier repair steps then contact Advanced Business Computes fro additional help and copier printer repair maintenance.

First, check the actual paper if you are getting light areas or smears. It is damp or too dry (curls after printing). Digital copiers and laser printer use high heat to fuser the toner onto the paper. If the paper is damp or too dry it can cause problems.

Second, check your properties tap when you print. Is the right paper type selected?  Are you using semi or glossy paper in your copier printer?

Third, your laser printer or digital photocopier printer scanner uses a fuser assembly which heats to different temperatures depending upon the paper used. IN some photocopier printers and laser printers you can adjust the temperature on the fuser. Again if you are not sure it your copier printer has the adjustment call Advanced Business Computers and we will be glad to check for you.

Forth, check your laser printer toner cartridge and your copier scanners toner and drum unit. If you are getting a very thin line then 90% of the time it is caused by a scratched drum. In most HP laser printers and Lexmark printers the drum is in the toner cartridge so just replace the toner to see if the drum is the problem. If you have a brother, Okidata, digital copiers then the drums is usually separate from the toner cartridges. On desktop machine then the printer copier repair consist of the user replacing the drum unit.  If you have a business class digital photocopier printer scanner then usually you will need a service technician to solve the problem. In most cases they can just replace the drum/blade/developer parts instead of the whole drum unit to reduce your copier repair costs.

Fifth, if you have repeated patterns then determine how many times the pattern repeats on a page can contact Advanced Business Computers with your copier or laser printer model.  Repeated patterns are caused by several part of your laser printer or digital copier and we can pin point the printer repair problem by the number of times the mark repeats on the page.
