Internal Pickup Rollers – For Laser Printers Only
Turn off your printer and unplug all the cables. Uncover the printer’s front door and gently pull the printer’s toner cartridge towards yourself to detach it from the printer.
Try to locate the printer’s internal pickup rollers. Rollers are either black or gray in color and are made up of rubber. Slowly lift the rollers in the upward direction towards the front of the printer. Now, pull out the rollers and place it on a smooth and clean surface like workbench or desk.
Pour 1 tablespoon of water or isopropyl alcohol onto a lint-free cloth and begin the cleansing task. Fold the clean-up cloth in half and repeat the process until the rollers are free from dust and debris.
Clean the rollers with a dry clean-up cloth to eliminate remaining dust or debris particles. Let the rollers dry completely before placing the pickup rollers back into their place. Now, properly reinstall the toner cartridge and close the printer’s front door.
