Bad copies and expensice repairman, need parts to repair on my own.
I had a repairman stop by and he stated that I need a new Drum, PM Kit Develpoer, Pressure Roller and Transfer Belt at a cost of $940.53. I cant afford that, it is nuts. I know I can get the parts much cheaper and replace myself. Do you sell any parts on my list for this model? The model listed below is incorrect. The correct model is Gestetner 2740ZTD

Re: Bad copies and expensice repairman, need parts to...
Tell him you want the drum and the developer replaced only. A lot of the cost is going into the transfer belt. Usually our shop rebuilds them. It sounds to me like it's the whole assembly and not just the belt.
It sounds to me like the copier tech is giving you a worst case scenario price.

When is the last time the developer and drum where replaced? When the last time was a PM done? Very 250,000 copies a PM must be done? Which replaces the Corona Wires, Developer, Drum, Corona Grid, Web roller for fuser (Hot Part). Also during the PM the Tech should clean the toner out of the Waste Toner collection unit on the image unit. also clean the area around the drum and developer roller.
I have a Xerox xc820. The drum kit needed to be replaced, which I did as well as put in a new toner cartridge. The pages are now coming out very dark. Prior to putting in the new drum kit and new toner cartridge, the machine ran fine. I have tried all I know how to do and to no avail. Have cleaned the "wire", all the parts I can get to and cleaned the plate. Any help would be appreciated.
the heater unit is the problem.
yo can get a repair kit by search on the Internet or go to Toshiba web site.
the repair kit come with instruction, if you can handle the mechanic part of things. then you are all set.
Your macchine might need a PM
A few possiblities
Open the right side there is a transfer on the piece that slides out, That is the Transfer, check the wire see if it is broken, if it is broken, call a tech, or if not broken try to clean this with a can of air.
The charge might be dirty, the developer might be bad, is the machine level?
Could also be in need of a new drum.
The optics might be dirty.
But most likely a charge somewhere is dirty, or the developer is bad.
I would call a Tech for a PM (PM is new drum, developer, charge, and a decent tech will clean the optics and machine)
Ask you service guy if he can or knows how to rebiuld your IU / drum unit. You can still get parts for that copier you probly need a new OPC drum and cleaning blade and a developer change. I belive they should last for 80k copies more or less. Are you getting black lines and bad copy quility? If not you may just have the PM / IU light ON or it is asking for a PM? It is just a counter in the copier that say's it time to replace the PM parts. They may have been replaced , but the counter was not reset. On a final note, this is one model in a long line of the same machines with alot of the same parts. I don't think it is hard to find these parts. You can buy them on line.. Under copier part....
Order the parts your self and save money and have them install them... Good Luck
Beings as it is close to 100k, it is due for a PM (preventative maintenance) kit to be installed (this model has a 100k PM cycle), and also a web, corona wires, charge grid, and feed rollers (if worn) should be replaced at this point, and of course cleaned.
The drum and developer "should" last 200k (this can vary greatly).
$200 for a general cleaning on that series machine... that's entirely too much, and he will most likely tell you it's due for a PM. A competent technician would be able to install the kit, replace the above parts in under 2 hours easily.
I wish I could be of more help, but given that is almost at the end of its PM cycle, it could be anything.
The drum cleaning blade is located in the drum unit and is very much like a windshield wiper blade on your car and even has the same function. It cleans the drum of toner residue after each copy is made. A positive test to see if the drum blade is worn is to make two or three copies of an original and if the streaks are worse on the second copy and worse still on the third copy, then you can be fairly certain that your drum blade is bad and needs changing. Not a simple task, probably best left to a technician. You can do some serious damage to the drum if you're not careful. If the test that I described indicated that the drum blade isn't bad, then the next most common problem is a worn heat roller in the fuser. Not an easy thing to replace either. You can check this by making a copy and stop the machine just as the copy just reaches the exit rollers of the machine. After removing the copy, you can see that part of the copy has been through the fuser, the part of the machine that gets hot, and part has not reached the fuser. If the lines are on the copy that has passed through the fuser, but aren't there on the part of the copy that hasn't reached the fuser, then you can be sure that the lines are caused by the fuser roller.
