The copies coming out of my copier are light (i.e. difficult to read) and wavy--they look as if someone splashed water on them. Can I do something to remedy this? I have put in a new toner cartridge and that has not helped.

You'll have to get someone to read the engine code that's causing the light to come on. Someone that can pull and read the OBD-1 Codes. OBD-1 codes are much more difficult than cars made after 195 which are OBD-2. You might be able to do it yourself with a good repair manual found at any autopart store. Good Luck
how long has the paper been in the drawer. sometime paper absorbs a lot of moisture and when the paper goes through the fixing unit the heated rollers press the water from the paper causing that problem.
Then there is the enviornment the machine is in as well.
and finally of course the fixing assembly might need rebuilt and or replaced due to heating issues.
Unplug power & remove glass. Carefully clean the mirrors that you can see. There are 2 other mirrors under the dark box and 1 screw should allow uou access to them. If this does not help then maybe a drum blade problem.
What you mostly need to do is to clean the optics under the copyboard glass the mirrors are mostly dusty... I would use a soft dry cloth to wipe the mirrors off. There is a mirror under the "Black Box" I would also, use a lightly damp rag with rubbing alcoh. to wipe OFF the scanning lamp & reflector. Cleaning the optics should get read of the dark back ground, but the drums are only good for 80k... You may need a new OPC drum & blade. Good Luck
Have you tried copying on the printer, will it also print wavy as well?
Because if you can copy fine and you cannot print properly using your printer it might be your computer. Why not use another application or program on your computer. In that case you can compare which has the issue.
Program such as MS Word, Powerpoint, Paint, Photoshop, etc
i've solved this million times, the problem is the rollers at the finishing area. they are small rubber rollers mounter on a steel arm. the piece has a part number as a whole piece (the rollers in the arm) there are at least two of those you've got to chance and for that you gotta remove the fixing ***'y. if more detailed needed let me know and i will gladly get those part numers for ya.
The type of printer you have reads the image you want to copy by passing the paper in front of a image reader (it is like a wand with a light-slit on a side).
If someone passed in front of this reader a paper with something like dirt on it (or typing corrector not dry enough) some of that could stick ON the light-slit, so that the section covered with it cannot read any more the image you want to copy at that point!
Try to make a copy and look from above or aside where that light-wand is located, then try to clean it with a clean hanky. It could involve some technikal skills, maybe you have to loose some screws to get to it.
If dirt stick on it after this, try with some alcohol (no solvent please!). After cleaning the reader, copies should come out ok, please let me know.
