How To Replace the Transfer Roller on Your Xerox Printer (VersaLink B625)

Submitted by Matthew Eberhart on Wed, 08/02/2023 - 16:37

The transfer roller, a common and necessary component of all Xerox laser printers, varies depending on what model printer you are using.

Every printer model is different, and many printer parts have different configurations, replacement time intervals, and service needs, which can make changing parts on your printer frustrating.

Replacing your transfer roller when it is broken or damaged is particularly important because your printer cannot run without it. 

For some, replacing printer parts may be easy to figure out with just a little bit of help. However, others can find the replacement process overly complicated and confusing when doing it on their own.
