Could be optics needing to be cleaned. First I would rule out the toner cartridge. If you have a spare swap it out or remove your current cartridge, turn it over and slide open the "gate" that covers the drum cyclinder. The drum should be clean all the way across it's surface. If you see toner on each end then that is where your dark sides are coming from. If the drum is clean then most likely you have dust building up on the optics mirrors. One test for this is to manually lighten the exposure control on the operation panel and then recheck your copy quality. This may cause the rest of the copy to be light but if the dark sides goes away then your optics are dirty.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
it is very possible the dark line on your copies are being caused by the drum. it will all depend on how many copies are on it but without seeing one of the copies the best guess i can make is the drum.
Is one side lighter then the other side of the copy? Meaning uneven copy darkness? If so, I believe the problem is that one or both sides of the drum cartridge and the developer are not connected correctly. The two parts need to be close togather to make a nice dark copy. This model has a very wierd drum unit and has a defect that one or both side of the drum unit locking tabs break and you get very light or blank copies. It's some what coastly to replace the whole unit... That would be a worse case.... If it is just on one side you might be able to push on the cover on the side that is light. If the copies come out better. One side is broken..I would fold up some paper and make a wedge to push the catridges closer. Good Luck
What you mostly need to do is to clean the optics under the copyboard glass the mirrors are mostly dusty... I would use a soft dry cloth to wipe the mirrors off. There is a mirror under the "Black Box" I would also, use a lightly damp rag with rubbing alcoh. to wipe OFF the scanning lamp & reflector. Cleaning the optics should get read of the dark back ground, but the drums are only good for 80k... You may need a new OPC drum & blade. Good Luck
Whats the make and model of the copier?
One culprit might be the drum. If you can take a look at the drum from your copier and you see black lines on it. It could be scratches on the drum or it may need a new cleaning blade to clean the toner off the drum.
