Gestetner copier duplicate image on page

My 1980 gestetner 2201 copier has started to lay down a second image approximately half way down the copied page. It is a duplicate image of the original, but somewhat lighter, and you can see it on the lower half of the page. Any ideas re: blade problem, or new drum??? thanks for any help

Copies come out with a duplicate lighter image half way down the page


Most of the time it's the fuser. Measure or mark edge to edge and make a tube. That's the size of the round part making the defect.

Are there cleaning sheets for Sharp SF2414 duplicators?


Hello Paul,
There are no "cleaning sheets" for this unit. Typically when this unit starts leaving marks on printed copies then it is time to do some maintenance on it. By maintenance I mean replacing the imaging drum, the toner and or the developer, all of which can be ordered from this link; Sharp Monochrome Copier Copier Duplicator FREE delivery If you don't feel comfortable then you need to call service!

I am getting a light duplication on my copies half


The duplication problem can be either the drum or the fuser. Most likely your drum needs to be replaced. If you can measure the distance between the first print and its duplicate I might be able to help more.

This is a cutter error. Check the following.

If the motor is not running you will have to replace it.

Copies are printing out light on the top half of page


The developer needs to be changed in your copier. It should be done by a service technician since the the toner developer sensor has to be recalibrated and all developer has to be removed out of the machine including the mag roller. If it isn't done properly the problem will continue.

A copy with a lighter image of the copy on the page


Do printed pages come out better than copies?
If they are the same, you may try another toner cartridge (especially if it is a remanufactured or compatible toner), otherwise, you need your optics cleaned (mirrors and lens under the contact glass)
