    When talking about laser printers, how hot does the fuser assembly roller get?

    • A.

      100 Degrees

    • B.

      It never gets Hot

    • C.

      350 Degrees

    • D.

      87 Degrees

    • E.

      360 degrees

    Correct Answer
    E. 360 degrees
    Explanation
    The fuser assembly roller in a laser printer gets extremely hot, reaching temperatures of up to 360 degrees. This high temperature is necessary for the fuser roller to melt and fuse the toner onto the paper, ensuring that the printed image is permanent and does not smudge or smear. The heat from the fuser roller also helps to bond the toner particles with the paper fibers, resulting in a high-quality printout.

  • 6. 

    How can you create a better-scanned image? Select all that apply.

    • A.

      Clean the glass

    • B.

      Increase the DPI

    • E.

      Turn the scanner on then off very quickly.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Clean the glass
    B. Increase the DPI
    Explanation
    Cleaning the glass and increasing the DPI are both valid ways to create a better-scanned image. Cleaning the glass ensures that there are no smudges or dirt that could affect the quality of the scan. Increasing the DPI (dots per inch) increases the resolution of the scan, resulting in a higher level of detail and clarity in the image.

    What type of printer is most likely to use a continuous form feeder?

    • A.

      Laser printer

    • B.

      Inkjet

    • C.

      Dot-matrix

    • D.

      USB

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Laser printer
    C. Dot-matrix
    Explanation
    A continuous form feeder is a feature commonly found in laser printers and dot-matrix printers. This type of feeder allows for continuous printing on long sheets of paper or multiple-part forms without the need for manual paper feeding. Inkjet printers do not typically use continuous form feeders as they are designed for smaller, individual sheets of paper. The USB option mentioned in the question is not related to the type of printer that uses a continuous form feeder.

  • 8. 

    Which of the following devices gives the paper a positive charge?

    • A.

      The laser

    • B.

      The print drum

    • C.

      The registration rollers

    • D.

      The transfer corona wire

    Correct Answer
    D. The transfer corona wire
    Explanation
    The transfer corona wire gives the paper a positive charge. This is because the transfer corona wire is responsible for transferring the toner from the print drum to the paper during the printing process. In order for the toner to adhere to the paper, the paper needs to have a positive charge. The transfer corona wire applies a positive charge to the paper, allowing the toner to be transferred and properly printed onto the paper.

    What prevents the paper from rolling into the print assembly with the print drum?

    • A.

       The registration rollers

    • B.

      The static eliminator strip

    • C.

      The fuser

    • D.

      The electrical charge on the paper and the print drum

    Correct Answer
    B. The static eliminator strip
    Explanation
    The static eliminator strip prevents the paper from rolling into the print assembly with the print drum. Static electricity can cause the paper to stick to the drum, leading to smudging or misalignment of the print. The static eliminator strip neutralizes the electrical charge on the paper, preventing it from clinging to the drum and allowing for smooth printing.
