First, from the MENU screen on the HP, print a CONFIGURATION page. If the print is ok, your scanner is the problem, maybe the scan light is dirty or defective. If the print is black, the DRUM or the IMAGING UNIT may need replacement. These are "consumable" parts that can be ordered like toner cartridges as "supply" items. DO NOT try to clean the imaging unit! The drum can be damaged by even a fingerprint. If there is spilled toner inside the printer, you can TRY to wipe or brush it away. DO NOT use a vacuum! The static WILL DAMAGE THE PRINTER CIRCUITS.

Copystar cs1510 showing error e70 please help


The E70 its a troubleshooting original placement and memory errors:
1. Remove originals and replace them in the original table when the "E70" or "E71" errors display.
2. Remove originals placed on the original tray and allow the copy job from the plate to complete when the "E72" error displays.
3. Remove originals remaining in the original table when the "E90" error displays, indicating that the memory is full. Press the button with a "%" sign on it, labeled recall, to print the copies of the originals that have already been scanned. When printing completes, place the remaining originals back into the original tray and press "Start" to continue copying.

Hope helps.

Why are my copies coming out solid black, even though my exposure lamp is still working?


A couple of possibilities. Basically if your exposure lamp is coming on, the light is not getting all the way to the drum that is in the toner cartridge. It could be you have a mirror out of place. When the exposure lamp comes on, the light is reflected off the original and then off a series of mirrors until it gets to the drum. If one of the mirrirs has been knocked out of place, like due to a recent cleaning then that would cause black copies. The more common cause would be the drum protection "gate" that is on top of the toner cartridge is closed and thus blocking any light from getting to the drum. You can slide out the toner cartridge and look on top. There is a gate or panel that flips open to be able to see the drum. This gate must be opened when installing the toner. Also it is possible to have a bad cartridge but that rarely causes completely black copies.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

My HP photosmart is printing out completely black pages when i put something in to copy!


It would be worth checking if the lamp is coming on when it scans the original in for the copy. I bet it isn't...

Out going fax is coming black


FIRST test copying. if the copy come out completely black, then the exposure or scanner lamp or contact image sensor is dead,not lighting on. Now if the copy has black only black lines on it,then you can clean the place where the document passes thru where the light of the exposure lamp projects unto the text of the document being scan,which is the small glass on the left side of the platen glass when you open the auto document feeder.NOTE: Lay your document on top of the platen glass & make copy if the copy come out clean as you needed it,then the lamp is O.K. Then the small glass just need to be clean. If the copy is completely "BLACK", then the lamp is dead, or the circuit that control it. In thus case then you need a technician to do it

Black copies


lay an original on the glass and make a copy, see if the lamp under the glass stays lit as it scans the original. Don't look directly at the light, it's very bright.

Copy is 90% blacked out


Hard to tell what your trouble is when you don't say what type of machine you have, but some canon copiers had a common problem like that.
The scanner cable would break. Lay an original on the glass and make a copy with the top cover open, if the light under the glass comes on and then goes out while scanning the original, that's what your trouble is.

The small scanner glass (not the full size glass) has some dirt on it. Use a lint-free cloth (not paper) with alcohol or Windex and clean the glass. This should help.
