Our copy machine prints out really dark, unclear copies :(
To get them remotely readable we have the settings on manual exposure & as light as we can go. If this action is neglected the copied document will get caught in a hot ashy & crumpled mess somewhere within the copier. Is this worth fixing or should we seek a replacement?

Re: Too Black & White
Have you cleaned the optic's resently? You most likely need a New Drum and Cleaning blade. If I were you, I would first try to clean the scanning lamp & reflecyor with alchol. Before I forget un-plug the copier first. Then with a dry rag wipe off the dust from the there mirrors that you can see. If you really want too you can also take the Black Box off and clean the two mirrors under that. Reinstall, what was removed inclueding the copy board glass and plug it back in and see what the copis look like.. They should come out better.....There is more that can be done, but first see what that can do for you without spending any Money......

fuser drum is bad. photocopier use electricity to transfer the toner to the paper, then it is heat fused to paper. it appears that the problem is occurring around the time that the toner is attracted to the paper.
It's never going to be perfect (unless the background is quite light in colour), because the copier basically "sees" the coloured background as "gray", and the darker the background the more "gray" it looks. Try setting the original type to "photo" mode, and then adjusting the exposure a little lighter/darker....that's all you can basically do.
I had the same problem but it was caused by the scanner that was not running flash under the copier glass,if I remember correctly there are spacers on the scanner that keep the scanner to run exactly the same distance from the glass of both sides of the scanner.
On the other machine,I found a faulty scanner cable that cause a similar problem.
It depends... never use a Reman cart in these machines... only use sharp...especially if the machine is under warranty. Does this happen when, Using the Doc Feeder When making copies from the Glass Or when you print from a computer (assuming you print from a PC) If you print something and this happens then it is inside the machine Probably toner or developer dumping... Take a few pieces of large white paper and cover the entire glass surface... make a copy is the line there? If so see the answer above... if not then close the top and make a copy with no paper on the glass... is that black line there.. If so then your top needs adjustment... One more test If you make a copy using the doc feeder, this black line only occurs when making copies with the doc feed, clean the **** glass, and try again...
is it a printer/copier? yes....do both prints and copies off the glass come out black? yes...probably a problem in the drum/ CRU area No- prints OK but copies black lift the lid and watch the exposure lamp...does it light up? does it move? Both of these scenarios would usually bring up a fault code, so I would still be inclined towards the drum unit.Pull the unit out and make sure no paper has sneaked up between the drum and the exposure slot, or even into the drum unit. another cause could be a broken corotron wire (very thin wire close to the drum usually behind a grid (charge grid) If it is a customer replacement drum unit (CRU) the charge grid will be built into the unit and will require the whole thing replacing.......
hi im jules_09.his there any error code?if no error code try to adjust the voltage on the exposure lamp,if that does not work can you send me a sample print at email@example.com so i can see the print .
first you press the exposure key and select the manual exposure mode then press and hold exposure key for 5 seconds when it blinks select the position to dark and press exposure key again,try to make the copy if no defrence ,select the photo mode and press and hold the exposure key again select the dark position by dark exposure key and press exposure key again.check the copy if again no difference change the DEVELOPER
