How hot should paper be when it comes out of a laser printer?
Posted on 2004-10-13
We have a laser printer which we think is running too hot. The users who work around it complain it smells, and is giving them headaches and sore chests.
We've had a guy out from the manufacturer, who said there was nothing wrong with it, but gave it a clean up. He said the model had a thermal cut out which stopped it from getting too hot, so the smell couldn't be due to overhearing. However, despite the clean up, it's still smelling. The users have started complaining that sometimes the paper is too hot to pick up (even on 2 page print runs).
So, does anyone know how hot shoud paper be when it comes out of the printer, and what is unreasonable, implying their thermal cut off is either too high, or misfunctioning?
