Most of the articles in this document have been compiled over the last few
years from postings on the USENET newsgroup sci.electronics.repair. I cannot
vouch for the accuracy of all of the recommendations they contain but have
edited out anything I felt was totally bogus. I apologize if your response
is not here - it could have been that I missed the posting and will welcome
Note that many of the problems and solutions are listed with respect to
specific models. Even though your model and problem may not be included,
there is a good chance your problem is covered but with respect to some other
model printer or copier. Therefore, search for a generic description of the
symptoms and you may get lucky.
Since the operation of laser printers and photocopiers is very similar, check
both chapters to see if your problem is covered when dealing with either type
There is also a chapter on fax machine problems though it is pretty sparse
at the moment.
Eventually, this document may be expanded into a full "Notes on the
Troubleshooting and Repair of Printers and Photocopiers". For now,
be happy that it exists at all! :-)
As always, comments, suggestions, and corrections are welcome.
