Cannon PC1061 making dark copies

I've cleaned the rollers, but the copies are still coming out very dark. I've even adjusted the exposure setting to the lightest setting & I still am getting dark copies. Do I have to take it in to a repair shop to get it serviced?

OR you can do it yourself.

your problems seems to be Dirty Mirrors.

Your copiear has 6 mirrors that need to be clean up. 5 of them are kinda easy access. the other needs to be clean thru something thiner than your fingers. (you can see the mirror but no way you can reach it).

Now dont worry (not yet) about that 6th mirror since THEORICALLY it doesnt get dirty.

So try first to clean up the other mirrors. and see what happens.

They are located below the platen glass (remove it) and be careful with the lenses (do not touch them). clean everything that seems to reflect light Or images.

If nothing changes you may want to try out with a new cartdrige. Your drum may be done.

I have a new 580EXII mounted to my Canon 7D. I do not seem to getting the "double flash" (not sure what the technical term is) that I expect and pictures are coming out dark. I'm think...


Holly, I believe you are referring to the pre flash for the ETTL function. both flashes happen so so fast that it looks like one flash. If your pictures seem dark make sure your flash is set to ETTL (press the MODE button unlit ETTL is displayed) this way the flash output is automatic. If it is still too dark you can change the flash output by adjusting the FEL (flash exposure composition) by pressing the button in the center of the dial until +/- is displayed the turn the wheel to select a + exposure (you can adjust this in 1/3 stop increments) then press the center button again. This can be found on pg 14 of the manual
Hope this helps.

Dark copies in that machine means the drum it's getting old. If adjusting the exposure to light makes the copies better, then the drum is the culprit.

Cannon 6 RE PC gives black copies


does the lamp under the platen glass turns on when copying? if not you might need a new exposure lamp...but if you get an image but its very dark, if you are mechanically inclined you can clean the mirrors and lens and the bottom of the platen glass because after many years of use dust will make the optics dirty and cause the copies to be very dark. hope this helps.

Try cleaning the Auto Exposure sensor, or disabling the AE feature in standard settings. Some copiers have exposure calibration in standard settings too. Increasing the lamp intensity may cause further premature wear down the process line. (What machine have you got?)

Your problem is most likely caused by dirty optics. Place a sheet of paper on the glass & make 1 copy with the lid up. Look under the glass at the mirrors on the scanner & see if there is any dust on them. If so,turn the copier off & unplug it from the wall, remove the glass & wipe off the mirrors with a DRY cotton rag. There are 3 mirrors on the scanner assy. There is also three mirrors under the lens cover that should also be cleaned. After cleaning the optics, make a test copy.If your copies are still to dark, press the additional functions key & select exposure adjustment. You can lighten/darken all copies by changing this setting. If you have any problems or questions my email is bspier@carlsonsupplies.com Good Luck!!
