Anybody know about laser printers?

I was helping my body clean his laser printer because his roller was printing lines thru the paper. So I cleaned the component and know its making a awful grinding noise and the printing quality is coming out bad.

I lost a lot of powder as I was cleaning it. So maybe that is why its making the grinding noise, and why the quality is bad.

If you got suggestions please help,
thank-you

Ah thanks for asking my shop is coming okay. I have work to do I got computers to fix and websites to build. So I am keeping busy.

Man it can get hard some times if I "zone out" but all in all I think I am taking a step towards financial freedom and doing something I enjoy.

Well the printer is a

Toshiba 1550 laser printer. :thumbsup:

Thanks again for the help, I ordered the toner for it hopefully that would solve the issues as far as printing is concerned

My old laser printer had what I believe were called corona wires.
If they got dirty the print quality would be bad and streak

Might be worth looking into
In the beginning there was the command line.

You might have been broken some gear or you did not reassemble it well. Did you check if there is a broken part inside your printer?

Yea I checked it all right. I took apart the whole drum kit to clean the roller. And put it back together with out braking anything. I made sure it went back correctly however I did lost more than half a cup of toner powder in the process. I already ordered the powder hopefully that will fix my problems.

I cleaned the printer as per Maintenance manual that I download it from the internet so I know I did things right.
Well I am almost to the bottom of this case.
