Question about Sharp AL 1631 Copier

Blotches of toner on edge of paper PLUS faint copies

First - After the copier has been turned on for a short period of time
blotches of toner appear on the full length of the sheet of paper. I have
changed the cartridge and this does not correct the problem.

Second - Regardless as to when I begin making copies, they are
becoming extremely faint even when I make the setting at the darkest
location.

I would like to have a technician come to my home in Dublin, Calif. OR take the copier to a repair shop if need be. Be advise who I should
contact.

My home phone is 925-828-5299

Blotches on left edge of paper


Try a new toner cartridge first, but worst case scenario you will need a new fuser.

Black lines on copies and on drum


There are a few things you can do to troubleshoot this problem.
  1. Be sure you are using new, clean paper
  2. Clean the copier's paper rollers, the marks may result from a dirty roller mechanism.
  3. Clean the copier bed's glass plate, smudges manifest themselves in the final copies.
  4. Clear any excess toner that has spilled in the toner cartridge chamber. Remove the cartridge, set it aside, then clean the compartment.
  5. Check for low toner levels. Low toner levels can actually contribute to unsightly lines and blotches on a photocopy
If all else fails, try turning down the darkness of the copies in the settings, this can occasionally lead to lines and marks.

Blotches of black on both sides of paper


The black slodges are most likely to be caused by the dev unit dropping black toner. Swap the black devs around and vaccum any loose toner out of the machine. The problem with the other one it that the magenta toner pump could have a fault. I would try this before cleaning the toner tubes.

CLP-500 vertical streaks & a horizontal line with blotches appearing randomly


I've refilled the toner cartridges a few times now and never had a problem with vertical streaks until recently. I refilled both the cyan and magenta and when I ran the test page I had dark vertical streaks on both sides. I fiddled around cleaning things, running cleaning paper through, changing reset resistors but to no avail so eventually decided to buy a replacement refurbished cyan cartridge since the streaks looked mainly blue and bingo... well almost now I just have very light magenta streaks. The issue is obvious when I compared the old and new cartridge, the replacement toner is a much duller cyan and is of the wrong consistency since once it's been in the printer everything gets covered in it which is why I think it causes the banding to occur. I'm just trying to work out now whether to try refilling the magenta again (v. messy) or just go for another refurbished cartridge (£34).

Toner Dumping in machine


Do you have a shop vac with a hose on it? Turn the copier OFF and UNPLUG it from the WALL and use the vac to do all the lose toner & use a brush to get into the cracks and hard to reach areas. The blotches are most likely coming from the paper path, make sure you clean the whole paper path and run some blanks pages in the copier to clear up any left over... Good Luck

Dirty Edges


I'm sorry to tell you, this is likely a drum issue.

You probably need to have a certified engineer examine the machine.

Have you tried speaking with the local service center to see if they have experienced similar issues? It might be free information.

Oki C5300 toner "leaking" on to surface


1 - take out all consumables
2 - use canned air to clean interior (do it outdoors)
3 - spray toner cartridges to remove stray toner (keep them connected to the drums, do not separate)
4 - make sure toner carts are properly installed and locked down
