Beginning with the Hewlett Packard
Laserjet IIIsi, the higher volume HP monochrome printers have had
scheduled maintenance cycles. At a predetermined page count, a
message will appear on the display indicating it is time to "Perform
". This lets you know you have
reached the scheduled maintenance page count for your laser printer.
What does this mean? Is my printer about to
stop? What should I do?
Don't panic, this message indicates that installation of a maintenance
is recommended. Based on usage patterns and extensive testing,
it has been determined that at the present page count for your machine,
a maintenance kit
be installed. This will insure optimum performance of your printer. It
does not mean that your printer is going to stop after you print the
next page! This can be a user installable item and our instructions can
help you save on a service call.
What is a maintenance kit?
A typical laser printer maintenance
contains paper pickup rollers, paper feed/separation rollers,
a transfer roller, and the fuser assembly.
Paper Pickup or feed/separation roller:
Used to pickup and feed the paper and subject to mechanical wear and
oxidation. The rubber compound used to manufacture these critical parts
is important and the result of extensive research so we suggest the use
of original equipment parts here since the manufacturer has invested
heavily in determining the best material to use. Our kits contain only
original equipment feed and separation rollers.
