Service tech told me I need to replace Developer Unit. Total cost is close to $800. The age of the copier makes this too costly a replacement. Any options or ideas are needed to keep this copier functioning. Please help!

Re: Grey background on copies from a Canon 6551
Yes, there maybe one thing that can also cause this problem.. You may have a bad or contaminated toner. You can have the all of the toner vacumed out of your hopper unit and removed from the developer unit and have underneath the dev. mag roller vacumed out and restart or install a New OEM toner back into the hopper and have them run a install toner funcation. That should take care of your problem. Even if you just change the developer unit you will still be using the same bad toner it all needs to be removed. I only really say a copier get contaminated more then once, was where the copier was in a very,very Cold room. The toner get water dew in them and the toner clumps. And you get grey and a modeled back ground and bad C.Q..... Good Luck

when toner spills it could be that the seal between toner tray/harper/ hopper is not working properly, it could also be developer inside the drum that is worn down, if you page/print has a slight grey background then replace the developer, you will need a qualified technician for this as there is settings that need to be done after developer replacement
There really is not a service mode for this copier. Have you tried to adjust the flush knob on the control panel? The copier is kind of old, when you **** shell it open is there a black small knob on the inside front of the copier.... If so adjust that... Also, I would try to clean the optic's of the copier under the copy board glass. There is a "VR" on the back of the copier to adjust the lamp. Finally, have you replaced the drum unit???? Good Luck
The Fixing Web is a roll of oil impregnated fabic that sits on top of the upper fixing roller. Its purpose is clean the fixing rollers between copies. It lasts somewhere around 250,000 copies. Needs to replaced by a service tech and have the counter reset. If the Web runs out you get a E-005 error code.
When you open the front door and release handle and pull out the Paper Transport fixing assembly. The Web is under the yellow cover on the left side.
To me it really depends on how many copies the unit has. If you are over 200K it may be time to upgrade, only because parts are expensive after that point. I have always liked Canon copiers, because you don't have to mix developer, it is already blended with the toner.
hi im jules_09,check the developer,if its past over 60,000 copies if
its over 60,000 copies you need to change the developer along with the
opc drum and cleaning blade or roller,all copiers need to be replaced
with new developer,opc drum and cleanign blade or roller when it reach
its copy life,that may be the cause of light copy of print
