Why is my laser printer smoking?
The most likely reason for smoke in a laser printer is a piece of paper jammed in the fuser area. Especially if the paper is wrapped around the fuser. However, the printer should have temperature sensors that detect the paper overheating in the fuser and shut off the fuser, before you detect smoke.
Why is steam coming out of my printer?
Steam coming off your printer is not uncommon, particularly if the media that you are printing on is damp. However, if you have reason to believe that what you are seeing is definitely smoke, or if there is a ‘smoky’ smell eschewing from the printer, then turn the machine off, and contact the manufacturer immediately.
Why is my printer sweating?
Heat and moisture, created by the printing process, dissipate through vents on the back of the product or through an internal fan. Moisture can sometimes appear on the trailing edge of the paper on small print jobs. The amount of moisture is small, even though it is visible.
What is usually the problem if the print on the paper from a laser printer smears when you rub it?
Smears that appear in addition to otherwise well-formed output may signal toner contamination inside your LaserJet, either from a leaky cartridge or from improperly fused sheets that leave toner residue behind. Smears at the edge of the sheet that enters the printer first point to dirty paper guides.
Why is my Samsung printer smoking?
Damp paper can cause white smoke or steam due to the heat inside the printer. Remove the toner cartridge(s) from the printer and make sure no packaging material is on them or inside the printer.
How do I stop my laser printer from smearing?
The best way to prevent smearing is to make sure you give the ink time to dry before picking up the copy or copies. It doesn’t take long, maybe 10-15 seconds. If that doesn’t work, try changing your printer settings for a lower quality print job.
Why does my laser printer leaving streaks on the page?
Streaking is usually caused by a worn out drum unit or spent toner cartridge. Reinstall the toner cartridge and run a test print. If the quality does not improve, check your printer’s user guide to see if there is a cartridge cleaning function built into the machine.
