    The problem occurs when I porint from the computer or make copies. It happens to a lesser degree when I use the document feeder but it still happens.

It depends... never use a Reman cart in these machines... only use sharp...especially if the machine is under warranty.

Does this happen when,
Using the Doc Feeder
When making copies from the Glass
Or when you print from a computer (assuming you print from a PC)

If you print something and this happens then it is inside the machine
Probably toner or developer dumping...

Take a few pieces of large white paper and cover the entire glass surface... make a copy is the line there? If so see the answer above... if not then close the top and make a copy with no paper on the glass... is that black line there.. If so then your top needs adjustment...

One more test
If you make a copy using the doc feeder, this black line only occurs when making copies with the doc feed, clean the **** glass, and try again...

    If this happens when you print from the computer, it is internal, you have toner or devleoper dumping.

    if you open the cover where you put the toner in, and find toner every where. You probably need a PM call an authorized Sharp service tech to do this for your..

Wen i print, there's a dark streak down the left edge of the paper. Hw do i solve this problem?


Hello, this one is fairly simple to diagnose, Change the toner cartridge, does the problem go away? if yes the toner is the problem. If the problem remains it would most likely be the fuser, in which case it would likely need servicing and the fuser replaced.

Prints on my Lexmark T632 have a dark line running from leading to trailing edge of the paper. Toner cartridge replaced but didn't help. Lots of toner scattered through out the printer.


Great job on replacing the toner cartridge. Most probably problem's on the fuser or the charge roll. They may need to be replaced. But also check maintenance count to see if you have already reached the 300,000 prints. It affects the print quality when you have reached the limit.

Broad dark line on right edge of copied papers


If you have the black line on copies and scans but printing from P.C is fine, then your scanner is broken.

Contact your printer manufacturer for a replacement or repair.

I am getting a 5mm dark bar on the lead edge of a print job


try drum refresh and developer refresh... make sure your firmware is current... if possible reset your print card... physically and software wise... make sure that the guides on your paper trays are a good fit... change the default paper tray for print jobs and see if that helps... if it does... then its the tray... if not then call service...

Black edge on one side of printing


90% of the time this is your toner cartridge. Remove cartridge. Turn it over and slide open the protect plate. You will probably see the same "dark edge" of toner on the drum. You can verify by changing the cartridge. Even if you have an old one laying around you can shake up and try to see if the edge goes away.

Copier too dark


Did you clean the lens and the mirror under the lens cover? If so, There is a VR behind the front cover of most small Xerox machines. One VR makes the image darker/lighter and one VR changes the lead edge registration.
