Thank you I appreciate your help, I hope it will make better copies. Do you think that these are things that I can change myself, the drum and developer? It is really a Gestetner 2740ZTD.

The developer has to be changed by removing the old developer out with a vacuum cleaner. This includes removing it from the mag roller. It has to be applied evenly. Then a service program has to be ran to calibrate it. If any step is missed, the developer can be ruined and copy quality can get real bad.

The drum can be a messy project. The drum as well as the blade needs to be replaced.

Paper not clean when printing/copying How do I


Hello,
first the paper can be dirty in a lot of ways...

i.e.

If you have dark "background"or small black dots, the problem is in developer and it need's to be replaced, or cleaning blade or drum.
If you have streaks on copy, the problem can be in drum and cleaning blade or fixing roller.
If the copy is too light, the problem can be in dirty optics or bad transfer corona.

There can be a lot of things... better call service for preventive maintenace, they will change all that is needed according the number of copies that machine has.

Hope that helps!

It splits a line of printing in half


Hi there,


The reason for this line in betwen the printed letters is because of Drum which is a physical component like a ink cartridge. I would request you to change the Drum which is inside the printer as it will provide a error as brum end of life. I request you to take the printer to the nearest printer or computer shop to change the drum if you are not aware of changing the drum.

Hope this helps you to solve the issue. Please do vote or provide feedback on this solution as it will be appreciated.

Thank you

It say drum end soon and i dont know what this means as i put a new ink cartridge in it and it still keeps coming up the same.


Your unit obviously has a separate drum and toner.
Changing the toner, doesn't change the drum.
You will need to change the drum soon.

The copies have a black line in the middle and the error code 5010 comes up, turn it on and off and it works again but the line in the copies is still there. thank you


Dirty print out is basically due to cartridge related issues. Take out the cartridge and clean its drum/ (green roller) with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth. The drum is usually located under a cover. Checkout for any spilled toner inside the printer and clean it also. Print a few pages so that the parts get further cleaned. I think, this would solve the issue.

Moreover, black streaks (thicker lines) and dots etc indicate faulty PCR Roller which is located behind the green drum inside the cartridge. Cartridge or get the PCR Roller changed by a professional.

Let me know if any further clarification is required.
GoodLuck!
Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

Drum cleaning function doesn't remove toner spots


Did you check:
1) are there wisible marks on drum - like spots, streaks,... if no, first check the copie glass if it appears when you make copies.
2) does it appears when you print too? If yes, also check the fixing unit for spots, ... , but if there is also on drum, that means that the cleaning blade is deformed on some places ( the place where the toner streaks are ). You can use some paper A4, fold it on half and ran it beetwean the drum and cleaning blade.
But if the blade is too heavily worn out, the best solution would be to replace drum unit.

Hope that I helped even a little bit.

My al-1631 gives blank copies. just replaced toner. no warning lights of any kind. no message lights. it just prints out blank paper. could it be the drum? can't find instruction manual. purchased...


Was the copier working fine before you changed the cartridge? If so I think your cartridge is the problem. If it started making blank copies right after you changed it. If this is not the case the first thing I would say is it is not the drum. Try opening and closing the right side door. There are contacts in the door that will cause blank copies. I have had several customers do this and it fixed the problem. You can also try pulling out the toner and then pull the drum unit partially out and re-seat it. Then re-install the toner.
Good Luck

Mita DC-1435 is producing mostly black copies.


Whoa! Flashback to 1994!
At this point you may be beyond just a simple cleaning, but try this:
Power off
Remove glass, and clean (windex or similar is fine for all of this)
Slide scanner to the right and clean mirrors, lamp, and reflectors
Then remove black lens cover (I believe 2 screws on front and 2 on back) - A magnetic screwdriver is very helpful.
Clean rear mirrors, and front and back of lens unit
There is another filter glass that should be cleaned, but it is inside the machine and the drum unit has to be removed, etc, etc, to get at it
If optics are your only problem then you should see a nice improvement in quality; However I'll be surprised if your solid 'blacks" are nice and sharp. By now I'm sure the developer is shot, and likely the drum, and blade have seen better days. Anyway, hope this helps you get a little more life out of it.
