Panasonic FP 1780 smudging copies

I have a Panasonic FP 1780 that has suddenly started to smudge the copies. I can't find the manual (my wife bought this machine for her home based business about 13 years ago), which would probably address this problem.

Thanks for any help!

SOURCE: dark toner streaks

can only be toner, drum or fuser, pull out drum and look at surface are you streaks present? usually drum.

Stop a print half way threw machine and then remove drum and look at print, pre hot bit (fuser) are you marks there? If so it is drum, if not fuser.

SOURCE: Panasonic FP 1780 Copier. The copier

Hold down 3 buttons in this order:
Paper Tray (Oval button), Recall (Diamond) and #3.
You should see an F2 in the display.
Enter #5 (Display should be showing F5)
Hit the Print Button. (Display should show C00)
Enter 70. (Display should show C70)
Hit the print button. (Display should show probably a 7 or 8)
Hit the print button again. The print button should go Red for a second and then back to green.

Wrench should be gone.

Next to get out of service mode
Hit Clear / stop button until the display shows F5
Then hold down 3 buttons in this order:
Paper Tray, Recall and the Clear Stop button.

You should now be back to working order.

If you have any questions or need parts, feel free to ask.
Have a good day.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Dirty Edges

If copies / printing is creating streaks or blotches, the corona wire may be dirty.
Here's how to clean the corona wire:
Note: If you have an alternate paper tray, lower that first.
1. Open the side cover.
2. Remove the green corona wire cleaner from inside the machine (near the front corner of the machine).
3. Insert the corona wire cleaner into the corona wire unit.
4. Wipe the corona wire with the corona cleaning tool, by sliding it back and forth across the corona wire slowly and carefully.
5. Replace the cleaner and close the side cover.
This should resolve your problem.

Sounds like there may be a problem in the optics, the mirrors under the **** glass and both sides of the **** glass should be cleaned first...

Leaves black marks on copies


It could be leaking toner from the recovery area that sis on top of the dum, it removes any toner that was not transfered to the paper. You would have to remove it and empty out the toner.

My HP 4100 printer prints with a black smudge clear down the page. I clean the roller but continues to print bad copies. Should I replace the cartridge?


Problem is either the cartridge or the fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1)
Print something. When the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the
top cover. Pull out the toner, look down at the paper.
If it has the smudge replace the toner. If no smudge, replace the fuser.

Brother MFC8660dn, all copies are smudged, bought new toner and still doing this, what can I do to fix this


If they are smudged and the toner is set when the print comes out, there is something catching on the paper before the heated roller. If the toner smudges after the print comes out there is a fault with the heater and it is not setting the toner.

HP4-smudged copies of printed text are appearing lower on the page...Any ideas on the fix


Run a 1/2 test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1).
print something. And watch the paper. As the paper gets
about 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover, remove the toner.
Look down at the paper. If you don't see smudged text, the fuser is probably bad.
If you see the smudging, replace the toner.

Copies come out of machine with huge black smudges


If the smudges are consistent, (roughly the same size and approximately in the same location on the page) it's your drum. If not it's your fuser.
