Junior tech is dispatched to assist, sees the striped printouts, and is pretty assured that it’s an issue with the toner cartridge.

And when she opens the printer, she finds that the cartridge has an extended plastic ribbon hanging off the aspect. Downside solved, she figures, and he or she begins to tug the plastic strip off. However the programmer tells her, “Cease! That’s imagined to be there.”

The tech, feeling particularly junior, returns to the IT space and explains all to a senior tech, who tells her she’s proper. “The truth is, there are directions molded into the plastic cartridge telling learn how to take away that strip.”

Again goes the tech to take away the strip and reinstall the cartridge. End result: excellent printouts.
