    The cleaning blade is replaced when the drum is replaced.  It could be that the blade is worn out before the drum went out.


    There could be a few things going on with the fuser.  everything from a bad pawl to the rollers needing to be cleaned or replaced.

What would cause tray 1 to misfeed every 12 to 15 sheets? The misfed sheet ends up laying on the edge of the paper tray advanced about 3/8" from the paper stack?


check your paper thickness setting in your drivers
2. clean separation pad at the bottom of the paper tray
3. clean rollers located after the pick up area(registration rollers)
4. check actuators for the sensors to see if they are sticking

What does opc belt do ?


OPC Belt (Organic Photo Conductor)
A photoconductor is a material that conducts electricity only when exposed to light. Photocopiers and laser printers have a large roller or belt coated with photoconductive material. As this drum turns it is electrically charged by a high voltage corona wire. The next step is to reflect an image using a laser beam or reflected light from mirrors onto the drum as it turns neutralizing the charge where light hits leaving a latent image or static charge in the shape of the image you want to copy.

The next step is to turn the roller past a brush made of toner (colored plastic particles). The static charge will pull the particles onto the charged area of the drum forming an image you can see, next feed a piece of paper onto this turning drum, as you do apply an opposite charge using a second high voltage wire (transfer corona) to the back side of the paper, causing the paper to stick to the toner/drum (opposite charges attract). Separate the paper from the drum using a high voltage alternating current (separation corona wire). Melt the toner into the paper with hot rollers. This will create a black and white image.

I loaded a lined sheet of notebook paper into our printer tray to have something print on it. It came up with the message that there was a paper jam and to remove the paper tray and toner cartridge. I...


The only way a paper jam could affect your print quality is if it were actually stuck in the toner/drum cartridge area. I would remove the drum unit and then take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit and make sure there is no paper in either of the 2 units. The only other possibility would be that the sheet of paper wrapped around the fuser roller. This is the area just before the paper exits the machine. This would usually cause the print/toner on the copy to rub off or not be fully "fused" onto the page.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

I'm getting ghost images on multi prints to the point it is unreadable, is this the drum or fuser?


The only way to tell is to start a print and power off when print is still inside. If you see the ghost before the fuser it's the drum, if clean before the fuser, it's the fuser. You can also open the back door and look at the fuser roller with a light, the fuser roller should be clean but if the roller has images it's time for a fuser.

Our copies are streaky like the drum is not clean.... help! There is black streaks on the top of all of our copies on our canon imagerunner 3300.


A) Black Streaks, Shadows, And Ghosting
Adjust the printer's lightness/darkness setting to 2-3 different variables and see if problem disappears. Look at the fusing assembly - is the roller torn or does it have any black buildup? Use caution!!! It gets HOT!

Try another toner also.

My printer does not pick up the paper sheets from the paper tray.When I took paper sheet in to slot it works.


Well - I don't know if this will solve it (since there could be many causes) but it worked for me.

1 - Remove Paper Tray
2 - look at rubber rollers in printer undercarriage
3 - carefully remove "rubber bands" from roller
4 - turn rubber bands inside out and carefully return to rollers

5 - remove toner cartridge
6 - remove print drum assembly
7 - return printer drum assembly and toner cartridge

the roller trick helps the printer pick up paper
the toner/print drum trick helps reseat the inner workings of the printer correcting any misalignments that impede paper flow

Black stripe across copy


The orange roller is probably contaminated from toner that is sticking partly to the photodrum in the cartridge. That roller is likely made of silicone rubber (heatproof) that presses the paper against the fuser roller to 'fix' the toner to the sheet. 
I suggest replacing the cartridge and cleaning whatever is accessible before you put the new cartridge in.

Paper jam on initial feed


It sounds to me like your pickup rollers are worn. You should order a new set and replace them. That should solve your paper jam issue.
