Features of laser printer

The technical structure of laser printing is much more complicated than that of inkjet printing, which increases the cost of the product invisibly. Therefore, inkjet occupies an obvious advantage in the early investment. Inkjet printing of entry-level only needs several hundred yuan, with individual products even lower, while black-and-white lash is hovering at the threshold of one thousand yuan. Therefore, there is a point of view that the need for relatively high early investment in the fight can not compete with the cheap spray. In fact, this view ignores a very key hidden factor, that is, spray beating is not always so low price, its product was born to universal application after a long process. On the other hand, the price of fierce beating is being explored step by step. Whether it can be reduced to the same price as that of spraying beating is unknown, but it will be sooner or later to break through the psychological price of consumers. The selling price of about 1,000 yuan is not high for commercial applications. There are many successful products on the market, such as Samsung M L-1610, which is known as “King Short” and Samsung SCX-4200, which is the smallest and lightest laser in one. The hot sales of these two products fully show that the price threshold is not as hard to surmount as expected.

Another aspect that determines the cost is the late input of the product, especially the late input of consumables. Behind the usual price reduction and sale, the significance of the product itself has been weakened to a certain extent, and the input of consumables has become the most critical factor affecting TCO. Generally speaking, the original cartridge used by inkjet printers sells for about one or two hundred yuan, and can print four or five hundred ordinary A4 text files. The average cost of printing each page is about 0.2 to 0.5 yuan, ignoring the cost of paper. The price of a toner cartridge for a laser printer is about 500 yuan (black and white), without considering the loss of selenium drum (selenium drum life is usually very high, allowed not to be included in the consumables under very strict circumstances), its conversion printing cost is less than 0.1 yuan. In this way, if you print a large number of documents, you can save a few spraying money in a month, and the advantage of the aggressive cost investment immediately emerges.

Compared with needle printer and inkjet printer, laser printer has obvious advantages.

(1) High density. Laser printers have the lowest print resolution of 300 dpi, 400 dpi, 600 dpi, 800 dpi, 1200 dpi, 2400 DPI and 4800 dpi.

(2) High speed. Laser printers have the lowest printing speed of 4 ppm, generally 12 ppm, 16 ppm, and some laser printers can achieve printing speed of more than 24 ppm.

(3) Low noise. Usually under 53dB, it is very suitable for use in quiet office.

(4) Strong processing ability. The controller of laser printer has CPU and memory, which is equivalent to the main board of computer. So it can carry out complex word processing, image processing and graphics processing. This is not only impossible for needle printer and inkjet printer, but also the difference between page printer and line printer.

A brief introduction of inkjet printer

Thermal inkjet technology uses a thin film resistor to heat less than 0.5% of the ink in the ink ejection area to form a bubble. The bubble expands at a very fast speed (less than 10 microseconds), forcing ink droplets to eject from the nozzle. The bubbles continue to grow for a few microseconds and then disappear back to the resistor. When the bubbles disappear, the ink of the nozzle retracts. Then the surface tension generates suction, pulling new ink to supplement the ink ejection area. Thermal induction inkjet technology is constructed by such an integrated cycle technology program. In piezoelectric inkjet technology, ink is ejected from a nozzle similar to thermal induction inkjet technology, but it is formed by narrowing the area where the ink is ejected. The size of the ejection area is controlled by applying voltage to one or more piezoelectric plates in the ejection area. Because ink is prone to chemical changes at high temperature, the orientation and size of ink particles are not easy to grasp, and the edges of printing lines are prone to be uneven, which affects the quality of printing to a certain extent, all of which are its shortcomings. Micro-piezoelectric printing head technology utilizes the discharging characteristics of crystal under pressure to eject ink steadily at room temperature. It has a strong ability to control ink droplets, easy to achieve 1440 DPI high-precision printing quality, and micro-piezoelectric inkjet without heating, ink will not be heated and biochemical changes, thus greatly reducing the requirements for ink. Liquid inkjet printers represent the mainstream products in the market.

Inkjet printers need a series of complicated procedures when printing images. When the printer nozzle sweeps through the printing paper quickly, countless nozzles on it will emit countless small ink droplets, thus forming the pixels in the image. On the printer head, there are generally 48 or more independent nozzles which emit various colors of ink. For example, 48 nozzles of Epson Stylus photo 1270 can emit five different colors: blue-green, red-purple, yellow, light blue-green and light red-purple, and 48 nozzles that emit black ink. Generally speaking, the more nozzles, the faster the printing speed. Different colours of ink drop on the same point, forming different duplicate colours. It is easy to understand the printer’s working principle by observing the simple four-color inkjet operation: there are 0 to 4 kinds of ink droplets covering each pixel. As shown in the figure below, different combinations can produce more than 10 different colors. Some printers can also produce 16 different colors by combining colors, such as “blue-green and black” or “red-purple, yellow and black.

How many pages can I print per cartridge using an HP Laser printer?

Today, I receive a questions in the quora.com which ask How many pages can I print per cartridge using an HP Laser printer? I think this is a topic worth sharing with you.

As a long-term laser printer user, you will know that different printers use different toner cartridges, so the page yield of different toner cartridges will naturally be different. But not all printer users understand this point, especially those who have just touched the laser printer, may think that the toner cartridge used by the printer has a fixed amount of printing. Today, V4ink is here to discuss this topic with you.

Is the page yield of toner cartridge the same?

Obviously no! Different toner cartridge have different page yield, even they are both compatible with the same printer equipment, but the page yield of them may have some difference.
For example, the HP CF410A and CF410X, which compatible with the same printer equipment but have different page yield.

HP CF410A(K), which page yield is 2,300 pages per cartridge(Showing on the following picture).

HP CF410X(K), which page yield is 6,500 pages per cartridge(Showing on the following picture). The page yield of the CF410X is double of the CF410A.

Because the HP CF410A is low yield which suitable for users who with small print volumes and the HP CF410X is high yield which suitable for users who with high print volumes. That’s why they have such difference.

Will the number of pages I actually print be the same as the pages yield display on the web page?

Not always! The page yield on the web page is only a reference value. How many pages you actually print depends on how much coverage you print. The page yield displayed on the web page is the national standard of 5% coverage (Letter/A4).

If your average print coverage per page exceeds the 5% coverage standard, the actual number of pages you print will be lower than the page yield displayed on the web page. If your average print coverage per page is less than the 5% coverage standard, then the actual number of pages you print may be higher than the page yield displayed on the web page.

How to solve the problems when printers fail to print②

What if the printer can’t print if the disk space is below 10MB. If the available hard disk space is less than 10MB (generally referred to as C disk), more space must be released to complete the printing task. At this point, click the Disk Cleanup button, and then in the File to Delete list box, select the file type to delete, and click the OK button.

What if local printer port settings are incorrect, causing printer to not print.

The steps are as follows:

  1. in the printer window, right-click the printer icon, and then click properties.
  2. Click the Details tab and in the Print to the Port below box, make sure that the printer is set to the appropriate port. The most commonly used ports are set to “LPT1” and the printer uses the USB port.

Incorrect output of program generated result in not printing.

To determine whether the output generated by the program is correct, it can be verified by printing documents through other programs. We create a new notebook file, type a few lines of text, and then click the Print command in the File menu. If you can print the test document, it is the original program you used for printing that has problems, please reinstall the program.

Printer driver damage causes printer not to print.

Sometimes, printer drivers may be corrupted, causing errors that cannot be printed. We can reinstall the appropriate driver and print it again.

How to Solve The Problems When Printers Fail to Print①

Printers can’t print because they are offline. On most printers, beside the OnLine button, there is a small light indicating the online status. Normally, the online indicator should be in a constant state. If the indicator is not light or flicker, it is abnormal. Please check whether the printer power supply is on, whether the printer power switch is on, whether the printer cable is connected correctly, etc.

How to set the printer to the default status.

The steps are as follows:

  1. Click the Windows Start menu, point to Settings, click Printer, and open the Printer window.
  2. right-click the printer icon, the system pops up the quick menu, and click “set as the default value”.

If the Printer window does not have the printer currently in use, double-click the Add Printer icon and install the printer according to the prompt.

What if the printer is in a pause print state, resulting in failure to print. The method is: in the Printer window, right-click on the printer icon in use, and then click to clear the check mark “” before the “pause printing” option.
