Lines on scans and copies.

streak

Lines on scans and copies are quite a nuisance. They can appear from time to time and then disappear or get thicker and more numerous.

If these lines appear just on scans and copies then they can taken care of without any maintenance or parts.

 

On most scanners there is a large glass bed.

To the left of the glass bed is a strip of glass. This strip of glass  is involved when ever you do a scan through the feeder.

 

The paper slides past this small strip of glass. When there is even a finger print, smudge or small particle stuck to the surface  of this glass, then it could cause a streak or line across the scan/copy.  Any larger piece of dirt will definitely leave a line

 

Try removing this dirt and do a test. If you successfully removed it then the lines should disappear. It is easier to see the finer dirt with a bright light. Also most glass cleaners like Windex can be helpful.

 

 

Automatic Meter Read/Toner Level Reporting


We have automatic meter and toner level reporting at Inland Digital Solutions. This is available to customers with a windows pc on the same network as their printer.

This secure app is called fmaudit and it  sends us information about the printer on a frequent basis so that we have daily meter reads on file. meter-reading-ss

It also gives us toner levels and statistical data on when the cartridge may run out

Remedy for Driver issues

 

If a driver has stopped working it is common practice to remove the printer from Devices and Printers and then reinstall the printer. Afterward job accounting needs to be added to the driver (if your company makes you use job accounting.)

 

If you don’t need to remove the driver, then head on down to step 3.

How to:

Step 1: Open up Devices and printers

driver1

 

Step2: Remove Printer by right clicking on the printer and selecting remove device.

driver2

 

Step 3: Reinstall printer by going to www.samsung.com/printersetup. Then, download and open installer. Or download the universal driver and run it.

driver3

Step 4: In installer select the following then click next: Check the agreement then hit next> Check existing printer then hit next> Highlight your printer, for example the Samsung CLX-9252 9352 Series, then hit next> In the Select Software to Install pane select only the Samsung CLX-9252 9352 Series PS printer driver then click Next> Wait for download and installation to finish> In the Setup Completed screen, deselect Register Samsung Cloud Print then click finish.

driver6

Step5b: In the Advanced tab, Select Job Accounting

driver7

Step 5c: In Job accounting  make sure that the account type is accounting. Make sure that user permissions is selected. Make sure that under user ID, Enter name is the selected choice. Where the Yellow oval is, put the users username and below it we enter the password twice. Alternatively is this is a community computer then just type in a message for the user to read, where the yellow circle is then check the check box for Confirm name/password when printing.

After you have finished entering the proper details, hit ok and then hit apply in printing preferences.

Now perform a test print. If accounting details were inputted improperly then the job will not go through. So check carefully the spelling of the username and password as these are case sensitive.
