My Tech Guru can help you fix your own printer, if you can answer a few simple questions and follow a set of simple instructions. Many printers are designed to be nearly disposable and the cost of their repair could be higher than a replacement. In some of the nearly disposable printer cases, and business class laser printers, if you intend to fix the printer yourself, it could be cost effective for you to give it a try. If the printer is moderately expensive to replace, and worth the cost of a repair, you should find that you can save a good deal of money if you can fix it yourself. However, you will also need to know where to buy parts and supplies inexpensively if you intend to save the most money on this do-it-yourself project. If the printer is not disposable, please read the options below.
Printer maintenance is simply the page count cycle when the manufacturer recommends replacing a few parts that have reached the end of their life expectancy. Similar to changing the oil in your car, these maintenance intervals are designed to keep your printing equipment functioning properly and help reduce more costly repairs due to lack of maintenance. Nearly all printers have these maintenance cycles and the manufacturer's provide the common parts, usually in kits. Common printing problems, paper jams, or image defects are frequently maintenance related items.

Options To Fix & Maintain Your Own Printers
As with anything you want to learn, you have a choice about how and where to study and learn about the subject. Most available printer repair training courses have assumed that you should know about things such as "image formation" or "laser theory" just to get started. If you go to your local Barnes and Noble or search through amazon.com you will find books that are hundreds of pages in length - 300 to 500 pages or more. Scary thought isn't it? The truth is that you don't need to know half of what these sources try to teach you about printer repair and maintenance. The other half might be pertinent, but why take 200 - 250 pages to tell you about something that can be learned in a very simple manner? In a matter of only a few hours I can show you how to perform basic laser printer maintenance and repair on nearly any laser printer. Bold statement? Let me back it up.

The My Tech Guru Basic Laser Printer Maintenance And Repair video training will show you step-by step how to perform basic repair and maintenance on nine common types of HP, Lexmark, and Xerox office printers. I will teach you the "mindset" you need to quickly and easily isolate the cause, or source of the problem; basically, this is troubleshooting skill. I will show you how to quickly and easily find the pertinent pages in the service manual that relate to the exact issue that you are faced with; no need to even care that the service manual is more than 300 - 400 pages in length. I use the nine common types of HP, Lexmark, and Xerox office printers as examples in the training video, but more importantly, when I show you how to master the service manual, you can master nearly any type of printer repair based upon this easy, step-by-step approach. These nine example printers are similar to dozens of other models.
- Have you ever bought a desk, book case, bicycle, or piece of furniture that required you to assemble it? The product comes with instructions so that you can assemble it, step-by-step. Did you need to know the composition of the material, the formula of the paint, or the "gauge" of the metal used to make the screws? Absolutely not! You simply assemble the product.
- If a single component, such as a transistor or resister, failed on a circuit board would you want to find that exact component so that you could replace only that single failed component? Absolutely not! You would simply replace the circuit board.
I approach basic laser printer repair and maintenance in much the same way. The My Tech Guru video shows you nine common types of HP, Lexmark, and Xerox office printers, but that is only to help your confidence in seeing the simplicity of the step-by-step approach. If I show you these nine printers, teach you where to find the step-by-step instructions to isolate the issue, and show you the step-by-step instructions to solve the problem, could you complete a basic printer repair? Of course, it is just like assembling the book case or bicycle.
More importantly, after you know how and where to find the step-by-step instructions to help you isolate the issue, and the step-by-step instructions to help you solve the problem, could you apply that knowledge to virtually any laser printer whether you had a "how to" video or not? Absolutely!
- Was it necessary to spend $400 on a course to learn "laser theory"? NO!
- Was it necessary to buy a 500 page book? NO!
- Was it necessary to read a 400 page service manual? NO!
Not only am I going to give you the step-by-step instructions for several common types of printers, I am going to show you where and how to find the step-by-step instructions for nearly any laser printer model. This alone will help empower you with the confidence to tackle nearly any printer repair problem - from basic to advanced.

|I just want to say that your DVD and Service Manuals where a great contribution to me. The DVD gave good insight on the common internal parts of a printer that need to be replaced and maintained and the Service Manuals showed me how to do it. I followed step by step on how to remove the assembly for the . . . printer and had no problems. We have been outsourcing from somebody to fix our printers and my work is hoping I can do it now instead. J.C.- Louisiana|
