I have a Fuji Xerox Apeosport IV (Docucentre) printer with a stapler/booklet folder. I had an A5 booklet that I was printing but the fold was the wrong way so that the inside of the booklet was on the outside. Thankfully there is a little setting from the print dialog box under ‘Printer Features.’ If you change it from ‘single fold’ to ‘booklet fold’ it just reverses the direction of the fold.
Many printer manufacturers have a built in counter on the drum cartridge in their laster printers. This is so that the drum cartridge will get replaced at a regular interval and remain in good condition. The drum can in many cases continue to function a long time after the counter has expired. It is possible to reset the counter in the drum cartridge to extend it’s life. Then you can wait until there are marks or faded patches on the printed pages before you replace the cartridge. In some cases I have been able to reset the drum cartridge 3 times, extending the life of my cartridge to 400,000 copies instead of the the recommended 100,000.

When I try to print on my new Fuji Xerox document C4350 last week I got an error saying “The optical photoconductor needs to be replaced.” and the printer would not even print. If you play around with a different print setting (e.g. USB, Jetdirect, LPD, IPP) you may be able to get the printer working (still with the error!) till Apple repairs the problem. Here’s how I got my Xerox printer working. Continue reading 〉
