Found that friction tape will stay around a roller, as long as it's orientated right, in my Panasonic KV-S1045C to prolong its life. Tried the silicon stuff last night and it seems to work better. It doesn't put skid marks on the page. Looks like I also need to wipe down the interior of my machine prior to using it that day, otherwise it doesn't find the top of the page for awhile. I need to plug it into a windows machine someday, to see what all the blinking lights mean.
