I have had this problem with a couple of our C1100's the solution is simple but a bit fiddly.

open the lid and remove the photoconductor unit. what you need to do is clean the glass panel through which the laser shines (it is there honest). It id directly behind the toners but down near where the paper sits. Look at the photoconductor and see where the blue roller sits in the printer. This roller has the laser shone on it and then picks up the toner relaying it onto the belt in the photoconductor.

What i did was get a wad of strong tissue and use a screndriver to wedge it down the rear of the toners (in between the toners and the black plastic bar as you look into the printer with the photo conductor removed) and then slide it back and forth. I actually learned this one form some Minolta QMS printers we have, but the glass plate was in plain view on those.

Basically what we had happen was that some toner had dropped onto the glas and was blocking the laser from hitting the roller and this lead to blank (or faded) strip along the length of a page.

I suppose a smallish paintbrush would do the same thing.

Hi-

Reseat the toners, take PCU and put it back on. if all fails, chances are you need to replace the Photoconductor unit.

Hope this helps

Epson C1100 K toner low, right hand side can't print


Well if the margins are not the issue, then I would change it.

But before that, try taking a cotton swab, and cleaning the "k toner", the bottom part where the ink comes out. This way before investing more money into your printer, this 'k toner' might just needed a bit of cleaning.

Good luck

Aculaser c100 colour printing problem


Is the problem on all three colors? Is it possible someone has cleaned the toner transfer rolls - they have some "iron filings" to help the distribution and transfer of the toner. If this is the case you need a replacement toner roll assembly.

Epson C1100 Print quality


no this is not a photoconductor problem. your fuser unit is faulty, it is not getting up to the correct temprature to "fuse" the toner to the paper hence why you are able towipe the toner from the page. Hope this helps Cops Pete@wedotoners.com
