Question about Printers & Copiers
I inherited the aforementioned copier. It was fine for about 3,000 copies and then everything went black and the light for making copies went out. I purchased a new drum unit, but can't figure out where it goes as it doesn't really look like anything inside the machine. I can't find any instructions for replacing the drum unit online and nothing came with the unit when it arrived. HELP! I need to make copies and would hate to have wasted $170 on something that won't fit (or I can't make fit).
Well, if the light under the glass doesn't come on, that means that black copies can hapen. Nothing to do with the drum or drum unit. Either the lamp burnt or the protecting fuse is blown. If you take out the glass, you can mouve the carriage with the mirrors to the right and you can see the exposure lamp. If it has dark ( like silver) bands on it, the lamp is burnt and its brightness will not be enough to make a copy. CHANGE THE LAMP. If the lamp is ok check the thermic fuse wich is in touch with the lamp carriage, and normaly it burns when taking a lot of copies in one go. The drum is a red cilinder that is in drum unit next to the developer unit where you put the toner. If you open the ma chine you can see it about the midle just above the transfer corona. If you don't get it right i can explain how to change the drum. GOOD LUCK.
