Black streaks down left side of printouts Epson Aculaser C2600

I'm having a bit of bother with one of our printers. When it prints out it has big black vertical streaks right down the left side with smaller streaks on the right side with some slight horizontal marks as well. I have fully cleaned the printer with compressed air and wiped down all that could be wiped down.The streaks actually fade after several prints but then re-appear really bad again when people print after a break. I'm guessing it might be a photoconductor unit problem even though it is only halfway through it's life, but I was wondering if anyone had the same problem and how to rectify it before I fork out on a new photoconductor unit?!

I had exactly the same problem. Luckily we have 3 of these printers. Swapped the photoconductor and it solved the vertical streaking, even though the photoconductor was only half way through its life.

You have probably made sure that there are no tiny scraps of paper in the machine or no globs of inks in the cartridge slots.

SOURCE: Aculaser C2600 "clean sensor" message

This is a common characteristic which arises from using improperly remanufactured toner cartridges.
Otherwise it is a bad Epson original one - which is highly unusual!

When the C2600 runs through its calibration it prints strips of each colour on the transfer belt which are sensed for density. You will get a "clean sensor message" if the reading for any of the strips drops below a certain value.

The first thing to do is to depress the clean sensor lever behind the front cover several times . If that doesn't fix it I would advise you to remove each cartridge in turn (go to reset menu and scroll down to change toner) and inspect the toner on the surface of the roller. If there is any form of "sheen" then you'll need to replace the cartridge.

It is possible to adjust the doctor blade if you know what you're doing but be careful as there are shims on each side. Loosening and moving the blade bar towards the roller slightly, refixing and then turning the side cog to rotate the roller can sometimes resolve problem. Not a good idea really unless you're in an emergency.
There are some good remanufactured cartridges and bad ones. If you want to avoid this buy genuine Epson cartridges - I know they're expensive but what does the down time cost!

This is a Transfer Belt Error - "Worn Out".
This is not a consumable item. Have had to contact Epson direct who have arranged for a service engineer to replace the offending item.

I have a new photoconductor unit in my epson CX11N aculaser printer and now it is printing anything in colour with a white stripe down the left hand side about 4cm in


Hi

Try taking out all toners and reinstall them. Turn on unit, without Photoconductor, wait till you get error install photoconductor. Insert photoconductor and try printing again.

Hope this helps

4 colour dots on printout but not 150mm apart


Measure the distance between two of the same coloured dots down the page, if it is just over 150mm then it is caused by scratches on the photoconductor drum (this is the only thing that has a 15.4mm circumference). Try printing a black and white only document, only the black dots should appear. Removing the photoconductor and gently polishing the blue drum with a soft cloth can help if the scratches are not too deep, otherwise a new photoconductor is the only route.

Epson cx11nf printing problem


on the right hand side of the printer towards the back, but on the right hand portion of the printer there is a tab you can open it is about 3/4 inch wide and 2 inches long. After you pop the tab off, there is a handle. Pull the handle out SLOWLY all the way. This will wipe off the printing head like a windshield wiper. Insert the handle back in slowly, and whallah!!!

Fixed me real good!!!

Poor printout / colors dont look exactly as they are supposed to


Some of these problems are addressed in the Service Manual p242 onwards with illustrations and correction procedure. You may have to talk it through with EPSON technical support/or obtain a technicians support. What is shown does not exactly fit your description so here's hoping.

Printing problems


According to the manual, "If there are white vertical lines on your printout, you will need to clean the print head."

I had that problem and cleaning the print head solved it.
