Before You Call For Copier and Printer Service

Copeco Sharp Printer BlogJust when you’re ready to print or copy that report you’ve been laboring over for weeks, you discover lines or spots on your copies. While Copeco’s service technicians for your Sharp copier and printer are always ready to correct the issue, you may want to try these simple tips to resolve the problem yourself—without having to break out your printer or copier service manual.

Lines On Your Copies?

The first step is to check the slit glass. All modern digital copiers that feature an automatic document feeder have a slit glass. This is the little strip of glass beside your main table glass that your documents are scanned over when using the feeder to make copies.

Any type of build-up or residue will translate into lines across your copies. This residue can be easily cleaned off with a soft cloth and a little bit of isopropyl alcohol or even window cleaner. Completely dry the slit glass, and those lines should be a thing of the past.

Spots On Your Copies?

Also frustrating when trying to complete that time-sensitive copier and printer job are spots on your copies. First check to see if the spot is in the same location on every copy. If so, the reason is most likely something on the table glass. The most likely culprits are white-out and ink from inkjet printers. An easy fix is to try cleaning the table glass with window cleaner or isopropyl alcohol.
