    Thanks for the heads up. Never thought of that. I have seen toner blow up a regular hoover handheld vacuum years ago. And it's not pretty if filter was really full.

    Or like a rookie tech at last company I worked for. He left 2 new cans of "compressed" air sitting on dash of company car, with outside temp of 90+ degrees! Blew winshield clean out, tore healiner to shreds !!! Lasted 2 more weeks with company.

    I think I will take my chances with canned air rather than using a straw to blow into a piece of electronic equipment

    Just add straw...


    My new favorite toy must be the hot air tip for my gas soldering iron.
    Useful to reshape plastic.
    Whatever

    Google: Giottos Air Rocket.

    Somebody here recommended it to me and I haven't used canned air since. Using compressed air you're just re-distributing the dirt anyway ... right into another sensor or a laser or something even more sensative.

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    can we assume his boss had and explosive temperament?

    or did he just blow up on the tech?

    Won't know until I forget that the one with the red tip is for oil. And that can happen.
