Question about Epson Aculaser C1100 Printer
I replaced black toner and there is now a broad band of missing print in all colours. I have followed procedure to clean print head to no effect. What else can I try?
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.

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
