Yes. change the photoconductor first, if the same thing happens after replacing the photoconductor, replace the fuser.

Whats the cause of a blank copy in a copier machine Nashuatec,Ricoh or Gestetner machine


can be several causes.
1-Tansfer rollers or wires broken or not charging.
2- no charge to the drum
3-laser unit --could be the shutter not opening or bad laser(should give a code if bad laser)
4-Developper not charging and transferrring toner.

If you can open machine and cheat door to make copier run, make a copy and stop paper as it gets to drum you should see toner on the drum. If there it is not transferring to the paper problem should be the transfer roller or wires(directly under drum. ) If not you need a tech to determine which one is not working.

My al-1631 gives blank copies. just replaced toner. no warning lights of any kind. no message lights. it just prints out blank paper. could it be the drum? can't find instruction manual. purchased...


Was the copier working fine before you changed the cartridge? If so I think your cartridge is the problem. If it started making blank copies right after you changed it. If this is not the case the first thing I would say is it is not the drum. Try opening and closing the right side door. There are contacts in the door that will cause blank copies. I have had several customers do this and it fixed the problem. You can also try pulling out the toner and then pull the drum unit partially out and re-seat it. Then re-install the toner.
Good Luck

Copy coming out blank


Normally a blank copy is caused by the image not being transfered from the drum to the copy paper. Which indicates a problem with the transfer step of the process, check for a bad transfer roller or a bad transfer belt. If this is not very obvious, run a copy and try to turn the machine off or open the front cover during the copy process when the copy paper is about half way under the drum and check for a toner image on the drum. If there is no toner image on the drum you may have a developer problem, broken drive gears etc. But if there is a toner image on the drum but no image on the paper then it is a transfer issue.

Copies blank


This is normally the corrona wire that needs to be replaced in the transfer unit and drum unit.

Print quality


Ghosting can :
1-prints on the fuser roller, check if yes try cleaning it off, wait until it cools off

2-blanking lamps dirty or not working,(deletes image off the drum, before it gets ready to accept a new one)

BL mirror-(new image)

drum

3-Bad drum (although I doubt it this far in the process.)

Sounds like your drum cartridge might be bad.
Something you can try that might narrow down the problem is to make a copy of something and shut the copier OFF in mid copy.
(Basically, when the light is about 1/2 way finished scanning.)
Then, open the machine up and removed the jammed paper which should be 1/2 way through your machine and hopefully about 1/2 way under the drum/toner cartridge unit.

See how the copy looks at that point. **** FYI **** The toner on the paper is NOT FUSED so it will RUB OFF. Keep the paper away from your clothes and toss it.
IF your copy has smudges on it, then there is a real good chance that your drum unit is bad and needs to replaced.

If the copy looks good, then there is a possibility that the fuser unit is bad and needs to be repaired.

I would say that your drum unit is bad with my experience with Canon Copier.

If you still have more questions, feel free to ask.
Have a good day.
Good luck.

You could have one of several problems. Seeing as how you just replaced the toner, it could be a defective toner. Did you have the trouble prior to cartridge replacement? Did you replace it with OEM or after-market/refurbed stuff? You could also have a broken corotron wire. On the right side door is an assembly that has a very fine tungsten wire strung across it. This wire places a charge on the paper to "pull" the image off the drum. if it's broken, you will get blank (or almost blank) images). A 3rd possibility I have seen is that your scanner lock is on. Usually this will cause L1 codes, but I have seen cases where it didn't, and your scanner never moves from "home" position to scan your originals, again, resulting in no image being processed, and therefore blank copies. The scanner lock is under the scanner assembly (above the area where your copies come out) on the left side of the machine. It is a dial mechanism that can be turned to either the locked or unlocked position. It's hard to see, and you almost have to stand on your head to get a good view of it. It is not uncommon that in the process of removing copies from the "catch tray" area to accidentally brush it with one's hand, or watch, or ring, and spin it to the locked position. Certainly a bad drum can effect copy quality as well, but before spending the money, I'd check/re-check the other 3 first.
