All of my copies have toner on the right edge. How do I fix this?

All of the copies from my Sharp have toner on the right hand side, primarily on the edge of the paper. I have taken the toner cartridge and the drum cartridge out and cleaned it as much as I could and I still keep getting lots of toner on the edge of every page. How do I fix this?

If it keeps coming back on the drum then replace drum.
Very unlikely that the toner is bad.

A copy has toner all over the right side on the paper.


Are you mean that toner isnt baked enough? If yes then you have problem with fixing roller bushings.

But if the toner is like printed, change blade and drum.

If the toner is like spiled on copy, vacume and clean the machine

A thick black line of toner accumulates on the right edge of the paper


This is most likely caused by the drum unit. This unit is located just to the right of your toner cartridge. Just remove the toner cartridge first. Now remove the drum unit. Turn it over and look at the blue/green colored cylinder which is the drum. It should be clean. If you see a band of toner on one edge of the drum then this is where your toner on the copy is coming from. You will need the drum unit rebuilt or replaced. While it is out also check the front side of your toner cartridge. Just visually inspect the toner "brush" that runs all along the front side and make sure there are no piles of toner on it. Do not touch the brush or turn the roller.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Colored lines are printing on the printed copies. It does not occur when we copy items, only when they are printed. The maintenance code "AA" is on the screen as well. I don't know what that code means....


When this happens, you need to clean the scanning area. When you lift the top cover, you will see a green clip on the right hand side (of the actual cover) and you clean the scanning section on the left hand side on both the bottom of the cover and on the base where you would put your original copies.

Then open where you put the toners in, and pull out on the green rods a few times each, and this will help clear the grid.

When printing, the toner does not completely get distributed. Consequently we are left with a "white" line through the print on the right-hand side. The white begins about 7/8ths inches in from edge and...


It can either be the toner cartridge itself, or the fuser.

Try a full cleaning, and if that does not help at all, you will have to replace the toner or fuser or both.

Added toner/copies still too light


adding toner to Canon copiers will not fix copy Quality problems. Do the copies look better if you manually adjust your exposure setting? If so you can clean the optics, which are the mirrors under the glass. Be very careful there are alot of sharp metal edges, that can cut you very easily.
You can use windex.

Several things can cause this problem; The drum cartridge is not being cleaned properly or there is a problem with the toner cartridge . Take out the drum cartridge and inspect it for any signs of the defective image. If that doesnot solve the problem, then Call a tech.
