Overview/Description

Explore all types of printers, such as laser, inkjet, thermal, impact, virtual, 3D, and also print drivers, and connection options used when installing a printer. This course covers the following: components of a laser printer, such as imaging drum, fuser assembly, transfer belt, rollers, separate pads, and duplexing assembly; the laser printer imaging process, developing, transferring, fusing, and cleaning; routine maintenance tasks such as toner replacement, maintenance kit application, and calibration; inkjet printer components, including ink cartridge, print head, roller, feeder, carriage, and belt; how to calibrate and maintain an inkjet printer including replacing cartridges and clearing jams; components of a thermal printer including the feed assembly, heating element, and special thermal paper; and thermal printer maintenance tasks such as replacing paper, cleaning heating elements, and removing debris. Examine components of impact printers, such as print head, ribbon, tractor feed, and impact paper; differentiating between virtual print options such as print to file, print to PDF, print to XPS, and print to image; and the components of a 3D printer, such as plastic filaments. This course can be used to help prepare for the 220-1001: CompTIA A+ certification exam.
