    The machine seems to be ok otherwise. I've tried all the settings availablel but unable to get a clean copy. Is it possible that a low toner is my problem.?

  • Parentejr Nov 15, 2008

    Not the answer I wanted, but I have allready ordered the cartridge since it seemed to be the only logical way to a solution. Thanks anyhow////

  • Parentejr Nov 15, 2008

    Thanks for coming back with some new ideas. I'm hoping the toner cartridge will do the trick. I have already tried all the adjustments that the machine alows. I hope it's not some of that other stuff you mentioned because I read the instructions about how to clean the scanner and it didn't make any sense to me. If this cartridge doesn't work I may have to learn how to clean these other parts...Thanks a lot.

Try first lowering brightness in print settings. |If this does not work you need to buy a cartridge, at least to test it.

    It is possible that the toner is the problem, particularly if the toner is not an original replacement.

    Dark copies ralso caused by a defective scanner lamp.

    A dirty glass or mirror.

    Settings, in this case adjust exposure manually. And check that the machin is not set on
    automatic exposure, adjust the brightness/exposure manually.

    In any case it is necessary to test a new toner first, to understand if the toner (as often happens ) is the core of the problem.

    If it is not the toner, second common reason is a bad lamp.

    Check also if the glass and the scanner mirror are clean.

Canon imageclass d340 making a loud clicking sound


It sounds like you may have sheared a gear tooth off the roller drive or the traversing mechanism. If you are getting copies just leave it alone.

Helloi need toner for canon copier model PCD340 please let me know the model which will fit in this copier ?


Have you looked at the toner in it now for a model/part number? Have you checked the owner's manual in the list of consumables? That is where they will list it.

A simple Google search of PC-D340 toner brought up many results, showing S35 as the toner for it. Here's a listing on Amazon for around $30 for one

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.

Canon Image Class D320 does not copy entire page. New toner has been installed.


Has anyone changed the paper size in the paper tray to another size by accident? Have you tried the manual feed tray? If that copies the whole image then the problem is with the paper size input of the paper tray.

Black streaks


This is caused by a rotating part that is contaminated, most likely the drum that transfers the toner to paper.

A new drum or drum cartridge is probably needed.

There is a very remote chance that the high voltage that charges the drum is being modulated but I have seen this once in decades of service.
