    Is the developing unit the place where you put the toner? If yes, then it is in good shape. Thanks. I haven't solve the problem yet.

Check Developing unit if all developing gears in good shape and the amount of developer presence could be lack of developer due to developer spilling.

If its not fuser roller or cleaning blade problem, it could be a broken gear inside the Drum Unit.

Enter SP mode - Clear button (yellow key), 1 0 7 and hold and press stop button (orange key).
Enter SP5-810 (SC code reset) and select “1”.
Then hold down the “Photo mode” key and the enter key(hash) at the same time for at least 3 seconds (it is not necessary to turn the main switch off andon). If the machine beeps 5 times, the reset was successful. If it only beeps twice, the reset failed, and you need to repair the machine.
Possible causes are the fusing thermistor in the fuser unit, or the power supply unit defective.
Good luck and please rate me, thanks.

SOURCE: RICOH Aficio 150 Paper Jam Reset

There is not a reset for jams in service mode. Did you open and close all the doors and make sure they are closed all the way. Most likely you still have a small piece of paper left some where in the paper path or you may have a broken sensor flag.

SOURCE: Gestetner DSm615 giving error SC:552,How do i clear it

Are you sure of the code? I don't have the exact manual for that, machine but the number seems strange. "5xx" errors are usually related to the fuser, so could be a bad lamp, thermistor, or fuse. see note to reset (if there is not a problem) as follows:
There are 2 levels of service call conditions.
Level Definition Reset Procedure
"A"
To prevent the machine from being
damaged, the SC can only be reset by a
service representative.
The copier cannot be operated at all.
Enter SP 5-810 (SC code reset) and
select “1”. Then hold down the Original
type key and the OK or ! key at the
same time (this does not require the
main switch to be turned off and on).

Faded print on right side of page. When I copy/print in black, why is the black print faded on the right side of the paper?


Your toner cartridge may be the culprit.
Take the cartridge out and shake sideways and up/down. Reinstall it and try again.
If it's still printing faded side, replace the cartridge.

Ink smudge on right side of paper


Chances are high that the process of clearing the jam has resulted in ink being released from the cleaning/resting pad area based over on the right hand side (where the printhead sits when not in use).
This waste ink has probable come into contact with the rollers and other parts over on the right edge of the paper.
You'll probably see this ink slowly fade out and disappear over time. If it doesn't however there's something effectively feeding things so check the resting pad for a loose tube, overflow, puddles, etc...
If there's anything like that, report back (preferably with images).

Trying to copy a letter size document. Print on right side of document starts fading at about 2" from right side of paper edge


Check the scanner glass for dirt, or debris from previous scans. Smoke on mirrors, dust all contribute. Dont use canned air.

It will copy but the it will light and faded. Hard to read.


Too much moisture in the paper will cause blotchy, light and faded print. Run the copy through a second time on the reverse side. If the second side is good you have a paper moisture problem. (Usually happens in non-airconditioned spaces during humid periods if the paper has been stored in the open.) Hope this helps.

Hi my printer jammed at the beginning feed, and eventhough I cleared the paper, now each time I try to print the same jam happens. Anything I can try other than bringing it to a service center ?


Carefully inspect the paper path and find what stops the paper from moving. Sometimes there is a piece of paper, paperclip or staple stuck in the paper up turn. Usually the paper is wrinkled on that place after removal.
Try manual feed (yes, there is manual feed tray behind that narrow long door in front between the paper tray and the toner access door)
Clean the pickup roller. If it's worn out, try to remove it (there are plastic latches that hold it on place) and turn the rubber part in a way that non worn area covers the protruding part.

Canon ir3320 problem is a 2 side copy command after 1 side print ok 2nd side pcopy is a lite


If one side looks great and the second side is faded try loading fresh paper in the copier. Sounds like there is moisture in your paper. It dries out after going thru the fuser section on the first pass so on the second side the paper is dry and the copy will look alot better.

Samsung 1640 printing problem


A number of things! First did you ever clean out the paper path? Run out and buy paper path cleaner and run it 10 times. Try printing again and see if it corrects the problem. If it still acts like that, then you would need to change out the toner (if supected of defects or if empty) or change out the led inside the printer which you would need a repair manual to disngage and replace it.
