...many printer companies sell there printer very cheap as to take a loss since they make there money on the cartridges and supplies...
Yes,i am agree with that.In my case,i must install two cartridges(black+color)in order that the printer will work,i can't use only black.And that cost 2/3 of the price of the printer.(if you buy genuine cartridges).My intention was to emphasize how much it doesn't make sense to throw a printer for such a minor thing.
Thanks for your ideas.It looks like one of them may do the job.
I got something similar on instructables
but did not search long.
You might have better luck and time.
Refer to the Plastidip in that site,Can i apply the plasti-dip on the worn rubber or i must remove the old worn rubber and apply the plasti-dip on the plastic part of the roller?which then i will need alot of layers.
...Maybe doing something with black electrical tape..
What did you mean?to enwarp the black electrical tape on the worn rubber,while the sticky side of the tape will turn outside?won't it cause the paper to stuck?
The silicone tape idea sound,also,interesting.In that case,as i ask before, should i enwarp it on the worn rubber or i should remove the rubber and enwarp it on the plastic part?
BTW,in order to get into the pickup roller in that printer,the engineers that designed this printer took care that the person that will try to change the roller by himself will have a very intensive labor since you must dismantle all the printer into many parts and billion screws in order to get into that part,even so that a worn rubber roller is the most common issue on those kind of printers.
